Steam not validating game files
Here's a list and a guide with step by steps on how to possibly fix the stalling update/download for Dota 2 client. • Clearing out the Dota 2 files from your depotcache folder.
• Removing the Dota 2 files from the downloading folder. • Changing the region to force download from a different server.
Now open steam it will reacquire a new and try to download again.
- Changing the Region to force download from a different server - To change the region from which you want to download you want to open steam and open the menu (located in the top left of you ui) and then go down into settings under the steam tab. Now there are 2 options here you will want to change around.
Make sure that the download is paused and right click Dota 2, click properties and a new window will open.
These files are related to Dota 2 and can cause the download to stall.Now I'm assuming that those files are linked to dota 2 (a confirmation on this would be great too).But if anyone else is having the same issue and can confirm that removing those files helps break the stuck download issue then it would be a great help.Good Luck, Have Fun and I'll see you on Dota 2 soon =P I recently went away, got back home and tried to patch dota 2 to experience this issue again (would stop at 7.2mb every time).
I spent an hour or 2 looking into various methods like: Clearing the Downloading folder of 570 (Dota 2) Clearing the along with Reverifying the files (did that each time i attempted to fix the issue) Trying to change what region it would download from I did the above with 0 results along with a few other things in what i had attempted.
so if you are in SEA region you want to download from the US or Europe.
