game won't start


Recommended Posts

get this message upon trying to start the game.  Was working fine last night, but bought the chromatic dlc, and now it doesn't work.  Not sure if it's related.

Try verifying integrity of game files.  From the game entry in your Library, click the cog wheel on the right and select Properties

That will open a new window.  Select Local Files, then Verify Integrity of Game Files.

So I uninstalled it once, and it worked.  That said, it started up again.  So I did what you suggested and it gets 1 file that needs to be updated, but wont' because of "disk write error"

 

So I uninstalled it again, and reinstalled it onto a different drive and still gets the same issue, meaning "disk write error"

Try this:

 "Go to the main Steam folder and open the steamapps/common directory. If you see a file with the same name as the game you're trying to play that is 0 KB in size, delete it and attempt to download or launch the game again."

OR:

"Clear the Steam download cache. If the Steam download cache is corrupted, it can cause disk write errors. To fix this problem, open Steam and navigate to Steam > Settings > Downloads > Clear Download Cache."
