same here

It looks to me like it doesn't even know where the assets are located as if they'd been renamed or something. That's why it says `Installing: (step of )`.

Works fine for me on Windows 8.1 64-bit. Wish I knew how to help.

Did you upgrade to Windows 8 from 7 or is it a fresh system?
Wilda Aug 25 @ 11:35pm 
Fresh install.
Saturn2888 Aug 25 @ 11:46pm 
I'll try a full reinstall and see.
StevieLeighh Aug 27 @ 2:27am 
I did an upgrade from 7.

Mine was fresh. The machine only has Steam and games; although, deleting local content and reinstalling sounds good.

This is the error I'm getting when running directly from the EXE.

Sideway_ShippingWin32Steam.exe - System Error
The program can't start because PhysXLoader.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

The nVIDIA PhysX installer doesn't work from the dir so I manually installed it and a newer one; still getting this error.

Go to `C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common` and copy all the files in there into `C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\sideway\Win32`.

Doing that, I was able to load the game.
