Forgive me, I found my mistake. Finally found tatsu's video and found out I needed to point the executible of the run file in the preferences. However, I do have 1 last problem I hope.
I have to start the game in windowed mode. Currently, it runs only in full screen and i only get a black screen with severe lag when moving my mouse from the audio moving over the icons. If i run via steam directly, it uses the /windowed mode just fine, however even after setting windowed mode in the game.pref file (copied and pasted from the windows version that works just fine) It still only opens in full screen.
