Do not run this process for multiple games at the same time.
Have you ever downloaded a large 20GB game on Steam only to find out that it won't run due to corrupt or missing files?
If you are using the Steam gaming platform you may have encountered situations where games would not run properly anymore.
This can be after you moved Steam to a new computer or a new hard drive (and the games with it), after you experienced a crash of the system, or after an update of a game on Steam that somehow changed it so that it does not start or work properly anymore.
I recently posted this to the Steam Community, thinking that was a more appropriate place for it..they were useless (see for yourself), and I've always gotten better answers from Tom's users, so I'm hoping someone might have some insight into this.
I've run into an issue where when I run "Verify integrity of game cache" it ALWAYS finds files to validate.
Verifying the Integrity of your Game Cache will fix your install if there are corrupted or missing files in your game.
When you try to launch the game again, the game will be fixed if Steam finds anything wrong with it and should be fully operational!It will check the integrity of game files to make sure they are in working order.If a file cannot be verified, it is replaced by an online copy which often resolves the issues that you are experiencing.It is using the Auto It scripting language and can either be downloaded as a script or an executable file.While the executable file may be more convenient to use, it is suggested to use the script instead as you can go through it to verify that it is legit before you run it.If I ever have a problem with a game on steam this always the first thing i do.
