Team fortress 2 validating every time
I wouldn't get your hopes up on getting the problem fixed anytime soon.The biggest event on the Competitive TF2 calendar is back again!It's okay if you can't help, but if you have any experience with this issue, it would be great.This will be fixed when Valve releases the TF2 Steam Pipe update, which is currently available with the TF2 beta and is due for the normal client within the next few weeks.Not keen on the prospect of re-downloading 12GB just to fix this issue. What I did was I went into my Steam Files, and renamed the file, restarted Steam, and then opened TF2. I had to uninstall the game and then install it again for it to go away. Don't turn off your computer with steam still running. I honestly hope this comment ends up near the top because I don't want others to waste their time with methods that don't work.It took a while to load up first time around, but then after that, never had any problems with Verifying. Here is proof of me helping another person with the same method: explanation, and confirmation that it works Delete the game, and reinstall it.You're browsing the Game FAQs Message Boards as a guest. It just seems a little expensive to pay a dollar for one game.
Once these have both completed fully, restart your pc after closing steam manually.

Let it validate your Steam Files, it tends to hang at times once it reaches 52%, 56%, and 100% for some reason, but if you're patient it should finish.
So as the title implies, every time I run tf2 this happens and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling in hopes that this would fix the issue.
Sometimes I have to wait an upwards of 20 minutes for the files to validate and it seems to get stuck at 100% for the most amount of time. I'm on OSX as well and I have defragmented my files countless times and it still pulls this shit almost every time I want to play tf2.
