Steam not validating game files
I know this issue is reasonably common and has been around for quite a while and think it would help others to have another post added for this issue.My friend's account is currently having this issue, his Dota2 update forced him to download Gigabytes of files, despite the fact that I only have to download around 200 MBs of files. And then Verifying the integrity of the game cache I guess it was probably because after the renaming and then comparing the files, i got a lot of files missing. I did everything but nothing worked please help ise only thing is install the custom modes to play with my friends but I can not download or install modes other games that have games.so if you are in SEA region you want to download from the US or Europe.The 2nd part to this is the approximate speed, I can't confirm this but have heard changing the speed can also help although I am unsure how this would occur.Now I'm assuming that those files are linked to dota 2 (a confirmation on this would be great too).
- Changing the Region to force download from a different server - To change the region from which you want to download you want to open steam and open the menu (located in the top left of you ui) and then go down into settings under the steam tab. Now there are 2 options here you will want to change around.The next file is more related to menu's and configurations of steam but I have heard people able to resolve their issue by correcting this too.To refresh this file close steam and go to your steam directory (defaulted to C:/Program Files/Steam).On the same tab you can see the approximate speed which you can change people have stated changing this has allowed them to get past the stuck download. - Clearing out the Dota 2 Files from the depocache folder - If your still continuing to have issues downloading dota 2 or updating dota 2 where it stalls at the same spot every time after the above fixes your next step is to remove the depocache files as they are what is most likely causing it to stall.To remove the files from the depocache folder first you want to exit steam completely, then go into your steam directory (defaulted to C:/Program Files/Steam).
