I have been playing hl2 for a while now and untill now haven't had a problem i couldn't solve. Recently, when i tried to play hl2 steam has said 'the game is currently unavalible. Please try again at another time'. In offline mode it says something like 'this game is not ready to be played offline yet' even though iv'e been playing it offline for ages! It's really annoying because i can't even play any mods for hl2! not even garry's mod because of this. I think it may be due to me not getting any of the patches for it and steam wanting it to be fully updated before letting me playing it but it dosn't update! Maybe the patches i need are too old and steam dosn't use them anymore? I don't know..does any one know what i should do?

its never happened to me before
Then dont post, theres no point.
Hmm how long has this error been going on? Have you tried simply restarting? i've had this error before too, but i waited awhile and it eventually let me play again. Don't worry that error probably won't stay forver
Probably server mix up's they happen alot around there. It has happened to me on a few occasions I just restarted steam and it worked.
i've had this problem for almost a week now and it's really annoying.
I didn't make it!
Try backing up your cache files (the big files under Steam\SteamApps). Then un-install HL2. Download the Steam installer again and install it. Then copy the cache files back to the new installation. Also remember to backup your game saves....
yeah thnx ill try that, but OMFG i cant play css now either!!! when i go on it says there is an update enev though there isnt and then it seems to want todownload the whole of css again!!!! OMFG steam ithough your were crap but not this crap
