Need some help, Steam corrupt files errors

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • I'm near my wits end. I've had this game a while now, and have put a lot of hours in. In the past I've had the same Corrupt Update Files (or Corrupt Download Files) error from Steam, but just for Conan. I've even uninstalled, restarted, and attempted to reinstall on a completely different HDD just to try to negate this error. It won't even complete the download/installation to a point where I can actually verify the files in it. I can't play at all now and I just (foolishly?) purchased the season pass earlier this month.

    I've tried almost everything. Ran Chkdsk before the attempted reinstall. endless verify files attempts, steam is running as admin, tried setting all the files to Not read-only, nothing else was running but steam. Cleared download cache. Manually cleared the cache. Changed download region.
