Half life validating game resources
Even when Steam added support for multiple game 'libraries', there always seemed to be a few games that do not support being located anywhere but the default directory.
However, it is always possible to move the files yourself manually, and create a link back to them from their original location.
@dly I would agree, but it's strange that Episode 2 was allowed to move.
I haven't tried playing it though, so perhaps it won't work anyway, since it's primary resources are on the C drive.
now you should have something like this,dim filesys, filetxt Const For Reading = 1, For Writing = 2, For Appending = 8 Set filesys = Create Object("Scripting. Open Text File("C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam Apps\[steam username]\[gamename]\steam_appid.txt", Forwriting, True) filetxt. Close the filetxt command is used to create or edit a text file in a specified location the Forwriting section means that the script will write to the file nothing more.
replace [steam username] with the username you use to log in to steam.
I was able to move Episode 2, but the option is not there for the others.
Steam has introduced a feature to move game installs from one location to another.
Is there any way of activating my retail version of Half-Life without buying a key?
Do not run the verification process while performing other system-intensive processes, such as defragmenting your hard drive or scanning for viruses.
This way, Steam thinks that it's still in the same location, and your SSD has less clutter on it.
after playing Half Life 1 online for a while and then restarting, this is what my menu looks like: All the elements load an online server, instead of doing what they are supposed to (for example, Find Servers is supposed to open a window where you can choose servers). :) There's a 2 day grace period required before being able to do this for answering your own questions, but after that time has passed, you're able to mark it.
In this instructable i wil teach you how to make a vbscript in notepad that will fix validation errors with steam games such as portal 2 and then give you the option th launch them.
