[FIXED] SFM's Connection Timeout Install Problems .
I was looking around for an answer to my problem , and as i didn't find any that helped me , i just started experimenting myself , mixing some of them up .

here are the steps i took , don't know if i fixed it this way or if it just worked randomly , but i hope to help some of you .

1. Started to spam the install button , waiting for it to give me the connection timeout error untill it showed up on my library so i could delete the local game content .

2. Went to cmd AS ADMIN and wrote ipconfig/flushdns , hitted enter .

3. Closed cmd and went to try again , still didn't work , deleted the local game content once more .

4. Went to the store page from my web browser (Google Chrome) - and installed it from there .

5. Installation started . YAY . *--*

Hope this helps any of you , i just wrote everything i did , because idk if it was just the part of installing from the website that did the trick , so yeah ..
If anyone could try only installing it from the website and comment here if it worked , i'd appreciate that and will edit the thread with credits for help . <3

Please comment if it worked for any of you .

Have Fun,
< >

you go to your steam library, right click SFM and press "delete local content..."
