Steam randomly validating game files
Steam randomly validating game files - sex the city online
So **** it, I'm just going to reinstall the entire game for the FIFTH TIME to see if that changes anything.
- My install path is C:\Steam I am not running any mods or utilities at this point, it is a completely vanilla install. That's definitely not normal, and like someone else said it sounds like your hard drive is either very fragmented or possibly going bad. I would use chkdsk at this point to see if you have any bad sectors on your hard drive.It's the most direct way to solve the issue and I hope that you're as successful as I was. I can't get past my opening menu on Skyrim no matter what I do, I have tried uninstalling Skyrim and steam and have deleted all mods and files remaining, I disable UAC permissions, and I have verified game cache several times where it says: 1 file failed verification, it will be reacquired.yet its been over 2 weeks and I have tried another 2 times and still no change.All the other forums I have seen where people have a missing file doesn't seem to have it affecting their game :/ I have this problem too I do have mods installed but I don't think they are the problem but my additional issue is that steam won't let the game run the launcher opens, I hit play, and nothing happens the launcher just closes I've looked around the internet but it seems no one else is having the same thing happen.
Starting from today every time I start it up, it validates the steam cache files. One time I somehow managed to launch it, then my computer crashed because it was running to much stuff and now I can't get back on at all.
I doubt this since I did not encounter this in the past, and tested it on another Steam game, which didn't have any invalidated files. I've been looking through some of the Steam FAQs and whatnot, so far haven't found an answer. After the handful of problems it gave me, I finally got skyrim installed and updated. After each verification of files when you access the launcher it will go thru the process of recreating your INI files.
Wherever that bit of data which says the INI files have been set is stored, that is what is most likely getting re-verified.

I tried reinstalling the game at least four times to no avail (it did let me play once, but it had horrendous stuttering issues), and I even tried reinstalling all of Steam twice. The game refuses to do anything past validating files that have already been validated, and getting an update that I already have (which I know from the brief stint mentioned above). I did decide to do it manually like you said, but that didn't do crap.
