Steam issues - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Have you tried just going into steam and verifying the files by going into my games, right clicking on them - properties - then under local files tab - verify integrity of game cache.

That's all I can think of right now, I haven't had many errors with steam or any other game really.

Yeah only once it said that 2 files were bad, the rest the time it came out clean.

EDIT: anyone else have Batman working?? I just bought RF because I liked the series, I already have them.

"Steam support sucks! I never use them."
"Why not?"
"Because they never help me out with my problem!"
"Even when you file a ticket?"
"Of course I don't file a ticket."
"Why not?"
"Because they're not gonna help me. They suck."

From what I've found, more often than people realize, the company in question is willing to help you get the game working.

Occasionally, Steam also churns out a "crashdump" file that support may be able to use.

a few things

**if you are tired of redownloading, use the built in steam backup utility to back the files up and restore them.
**steam support doesn't "suck", it's just slow b/c you can't call them, it's all done with tickets and emails.
**you need to send the exact description of the error you received to steam support ala support ticket. then you can continue to look into it yourself while you wait on a reply from them.

I did use the backup utility to do that the first 2 times. I had it in my mind that the DLed files were corrupt or such. But I already backed them up about an hour ago, since I now think its not corrupt or bad. Just software issues.

I never said anything about them sucking, just the others. I have yet to mess with them. Hoping for an easy fix from someone with the same problem.

Thanks for the info. I am going to do this tonight. Just hope I can play it by Christmas... oh wait. Thanks for trying to help guys. I will now contact Steam support.
