  • Game trouble...

    I am really at my witts end. Ever since i played a couple nights ago my NS has gone Haywire! I get to the Verifying Resources and it locks up. I can join the rtfo server but not Tactical Gamer or NSarmslab or any other that i tested for that matter. I have totally deleted my NS and started with a new config Twice! I have updated my video drivers (which shouldnt be a factor due to me being able to play not 3 days ago). I signed up for a TG membership again (Got divorced and now have a lot of money... Don't know if that is a good thing or not...) so i want to play. Any suggestions?

    Before the lock up would happen my NS would just crash as if it was changing resolutions. Tried many different ones and setting my desktop one also. No luck. Help help help!

      sounds like one of two problems. either you have a corrupted steam folder, which is as simple as uninstalling steam and all of its apps and reinstalling, or your steam account has been vac banned for some reason. for the second, you'll have to contact steam and check the status of your account. if thats the case and you've been vac banned, the only solution is to buy another copy of HL through steam because they wont restore banned accounts under any circumstances because they cant verify that you werent really hacking. hope this helps.

              A while back wyz created a work around for those having problems with VAC. I dont know if the solution is still in place, but you should send him a PM to see what he can do for you.

                I can't recall anything I did. There was a time when we ran a non-VAC server, but I'm not offering that option today.

                  I was referring to the non-VAC -> VAC -> non-VAC bounce that you had. I figured that wasnt active anymore.

                      The punchline is that the ns.com fora are not yet public. If you're a Contellation Member, the joke is totally lost on you.

                        I am one :P But i also have been totally out of the loop these past couple months...

                        CS forums said this:

                        I cant get passed the Precaching Resourses stage
                        If you Steam / CS appears to "freeze" at the "precaching resources" stage when you try to connect to a server, then this is almost certainly because Steam is still updating some files.

                        Use Monitor to check whether Steam is downloading any files, also check whether your game is up to date - Am I ready to play yet?

                        WTF... NS is th eonly one that doesnt work.... I hate steam.... VERY MUCH!

                          You don't have Internet Explorer 7.0 do you? That causes the same issue, by preventing STEAM aps from correctly downloading resources.

                              You can sort of blame both companies. Valve wrote STEAM to borrow some code from Internet Explorer 6.0 to handle some of its downloads. Not all of them, just the ones between clients and servers. Then Microsoft went and changed that portion of the IE code for its upgrade to 7.0, so STEAM goes to IE looking for some code to borrow, and it isn't there anymore.

                              I doubt Microsoft will change 7.0 to be backwards compatible, so eventually Valve will have to release an update to STEAM so that it isn't totally reliant on IE 6.0 anymore. Dunno how long that will take though, probably not until IE7 Beta becomes full retail.
