I've read and tried pretty much every solution for this problem, but have not had any success.. Running a game up 1st time it will extract the gcfs into your ..\steamapps\ folders.

Whatever, I get a Validation box pop, which promptly hits 100% and then gets stuck. You can copy someone elses over or keep just them if reinstalling.

:( I've tried manual validation, I've run a cfg checker, and deleted corrupt/partial files. Always get the steam engine off update it, login to your account then EXIT.
