Validating game cache steam
I don't think that's the cause of your problem though, I've heard that in FONV there's a lot of things the player can do that we're SUPPOSED to be able to do that just crash the game, and so far there's not much we can do about i know one thing that you have to avoid the thorn setting up monsters/creature matches that is only avoidable by not doing it otherwise you break the quest giver in there.I downloaded & installed Skyrim DG/HF/HD-DLC through Steam and when I try to verify cache, I keep getting an error that 1 file failed to validate.
When you try to launch the game again, the game will be fixed if Steam finds anything wrong with it and should be fully operational!I doubt this since I did not encounter this in the past, and tested it on another Steam game, which didn't have any invalidated files. I've been looking through some of the Steam FAQs and whatnot, so far haven't found an answer. After the handful of problems it gave me, I finally got skyrim installed and updated. After each verification of files when you access the launcher it will go thru the process of recreating your INI files.Wherever that bit of data which says the INI files have been set is stored, that is what is most likely getting re-verified.Some other info I forgot to mention in case it is relevant: - During the first download, Steam hard froze on me and I needed to reboot my PC - After reboot, download continued but 3 files were not validated. I find the right option, run it and it says 1 file failed to validate and will be reaquired. I've tried any combination of reloading and restarting with no luck.
- After re-downloading those 3 files, every time afterwards, it was 1 file invalidated - I had previously altered Skyrim's graphics profile using Nvidia inspector (I have since reverted to default settings, nothing changed) - My install path in my previous installation was C:\Program Files(86) - Someone else suggested to me that it may have something to do with Steam's CEG (Custom Executable Generation) for Steam Works games. New harddrive, so I had to re-install steam and skyrim. My guess would be that it is a file related to the launcher.FONV keeps crashing when I exit a vendor screen with Chet, 2 different saves1) Ran CHKDSK on drive used, no problems2) Used Steams "Verify Integrity of Game Cache" routine, and 4 times in a row, this happened: Started out fine, chugging away to 67% ,took about 1 1/2 minutes, then jumps to 100% with message "FONV keeps crashing when I exit a vendor screen with Chet, 2 different saves1) Ran CHKDSK on drive used, no problems2) Used Steams "Verify Integrity of Game Cache" routine, and 4 times in a row, this happened: Started out fine, chugging away to 67% ,took about 1 1/2 minutes, then jumps to 100% with message "Your most likely looking at 2 issues here:1) Steam Inegrity Game Cache: You can ignor this.
