Hi, I have today purchased CS:CZ, and after successfully installing Steam, and CZ, I was suprised to find that I was unable to undertake in multiplayer games. This is due to the fact my computer freezes at the point of Precaching Resources :( My system spec is: 140GB HD 2Ghz AMD Athlon XP 1GB of DDR Ram 128MB nVidia GeForce 5200 Windows XP Professional A compatible mouse/keyboard I would appreaciate any suggestions on how to resolve this issue! Thanks, James :).
Uhm, im not entirely sure of the cause, but i had this problem when i installed.
Steam is Updating - Open the steam main menu and click "monitor" if its getting something this could be the cause, just let it do what it has to do, and then try again.
Just keep trying, eventually it worked for me, and havent had the problem since. Apparently a few friends had this aswell, i think its Steam showing off its gayness again.
So basically, my reccomendations would be to just keep trying to join a server :S
Sorry if none of that is helpful
If u stull havent gotten it this is what to do. Just log into steam and go to ur games list. RIGHT click on either cz or cs or whichever game you are trying to play. After you RIGHT click on the game of your choice a 4 option bar apears, all you have to do is hit properties. It will show how much of the game % you have acquired. Steam has to update the game before it can be played. So once the acquired % reaches 98%-100% u can play. It wont freez once you have acquired the needed %. The exact thing happened to me when i first got it, i was freaking out and going to all kinds of forums to ask poeple what was wrong. I even thought about exchanging my game. but then someone told me and i got it. You can always hit the monitor option as well to see if the games are being updated. hope this helps, if not reply.... and ill be more clear.:)
The only reason I even registered to this site is to thank you. I as having the same problem and checked my % acquired. Mine was 43%! I was also going crazy, I guess everyone gets this problem, or at least alot of people. Well, thanks for being alive, you. Thanks for guiding our stupidity!
Thanks to you all who have helped us newbies, but sorry to say that there is another problem.... How do i update? my cs is only 25%........ help would be mostly appreciated!
