COD2 (Steam) problem

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright, I bought COD2 on steam a few days ago, 'cause my CD version was scratched to hell and it was only $20. played fine at first, but today when I tried starting it up, the game just freezes as soon as it launches, right on the "activision" splash screen. I've deleted the Steamclient.blob file, I've restarted steam, I've deleted/redownloaded the game, and it's still doing it. Anyone have any ideas?

It used to do the same thing for me when I ran TF2. Try putting -novid in the launch properties for that game in steam. You can just right click->properties->set launch options (in steam that is.)

Thanks. Really helpful.


IIowa, I've yet to see you post something useful. You insult people and post random crap all the time, but never really seem to help anyone.

Big O, I'll give that a try.

Insults are the best way to help people.

That belief's not really going to get you very far.


Big O's suggestion did not work, although it was good thinking. Freezes the moment the game launches. None of the other games in Steam are doing this, and the game didn't do this yesterday. Ran fine.

Got it working now. Created a desktop shortcut, and put in the thing to skip the startup vids, and it's working fine.
