    Same here. I use Steam for most of my games and I've never had any issues. Sorry the well patched game is not working for you but I doubt its down to Steam :coffee:

    Did you try using the steam 'verify integrity of game cache' option?. This would have checked the installed files and replaced any it found at fault.

    I don't see any other posts about such problems on RD, so from a developer point of view: you're either running into error "40CMIFOS" or it's your hardware. Try what Mr. Pineapples suggested first, that might fix everything easily. :)

    40CMIFOS

    Is what exactly?

    I get the feeling there is a joke in there somewhere, but I'm missing it.

    IT helpdesk code for "40cm in front of screen" if someone's asking what's causing the issue.

    :)

    Can't stop myself laughing.

    But what if he really has a problem with Steam? You know, that one guy without a clue to what he's doing, expecting it to work right off the bat, then BAM! Conflicts of sorts because he expects a smooth experience?

    Well, we suggested trying to verify the game files - Steam will then download new files, if necessary. If it still doesn't work it must be a problem on his side since the very same files were downloaded by all of us (depending on the location) and neither of us is suffering from the same problem.

    It's always better to describe a problem instead of ranting in the OP and not trying to figure out possible solutions. :)

    Yeah, that's my take on it too. It seems more of a blow off of steam (pun intended), than a request for technical assistance. :)

    My favourite when I worked in IT was the ID10T error.

    Hi! I'm very happy I bought this game, but since it's the first I ever bought from Steam I have a few questions.

    1) Is my game updated automatically? do I have to do something in order to update my game?

    2) I can't find anywhere my game files. Where are all the files? Cant find them :(

    Thanks in advance. Cheers!

    Now now, it's not a matter of it works for you, so it should be ok for everybody else.

    He's a special case. :D
