Tf2 validating problem
EDIT3: Yep, upon watching my MW3 folder for changes and what has been updated last during validation, I've concluded for some reason Steam keeps deleting and redownloading iw5over and over again.I'm guessing that's why TF2 is wanting to redownload a 3.5 GB patch too....probably downloaded it and then turned around and deleted it.OS...possible it's somewhat involved, but idk how.I was having a horrible time trying to get Black Mesa to work again after Valve put up an "updated" version of their Source engine last week.Since TF2 was currently uninstalled, I did this and then installed TF2. And, finally, and this was a big mistake I think, but I backed up my steamapps folder and then reinstalled steam.
My current solution I'm trying is redownloading the shared source files.
Here's what it looks like: Both were free and both download updates incessantly, so I uninstalled them.
I've been aware of the validate steam cache files for a while.
TF2 decided to redownload 3 GB on my desktop for no apparent reason.
Seeing how my laptop only had a small patch and it updated fine, I decided to uninstall TF2 and reinstall with a backup from my laptop.
