Team fortress 2 validating every time
So as the title implies, every time I run tf2 this happens and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling in hopes that this would fix the issue.Sometimes I have to wait an upwards of 20 minutes for the files to validate and it seems to get stuck at 100% for the most amount of time. I'm on OSX as well and I have defragmented my files countless times and it still pulls this shit almost every time I want to play tf2.EVERY SINGLE TIME, I have to wait for 10 minutes to download it and play TF2. 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.It's okay if you can't help, but if you have any experience with this issue, it would be great.This will be fixed when Valve releases the TF2 Steam Pipe update, which is currently available with the TF2 beta and is due for the normal client within the next few weeks.
Hope I helped a lot of others too : DI have this problem, I think we're boned until valve launches steampipe as The Qless mentioned.Not keen on the prospect of re-downloading 12GB just to fix this issue. What I did was I went into my Steam Files, and renamed the file, restarted Steam, and then opened TF2. I had to uninstall the game and then install it again for it to go away. Don't turn off your computer with steam still running. I honestly hope this comment ends up near the top because I don't want others to waste their time with methods that don't work.It took a while to load up first time around, but then after that, never had any problems with Verifying. Here is proof of me helping another person with the same method: explanation, and confirmation that it works Delete the game, and reinstall it.
