Portal 2
« on: December 07, 2012, 12:30 »
So I tried to play Portal 2 again lately, and it just gives me the finger.

I copied it to a external HDD to save space on my computer, and copied it back when I wanted to play. I click play in steam, and it shows me the Valve screen, the Source screen, and the first loading screen, but then it shuts down without warning or explanation. It just goes down.

I tried cleaning my registry, I tried reinstalling it (although it says it only downloaded 127 Mb, which is kinda low), I even tried verifying the gamecache and deleting the Clientregistry.blob file. Nothing works.

I am at wits end here, guys. Can anyone help? Anyone have the same problem?

Goddamn Steam forums are down, last time I found the answer there.

Can you (I don't know if possible with steam) try to install it in another directory?

Got it working. Removed it with Remove program, then deleted all local files, and reinstalled it.
Who's up for a game of Portal 2 Co-op?
