STEAM is required to play the game. ERROR
RO2 is suddenly no longer listed as an installed game in my Steam account. I tried many things by now - nothing worked. Anyone got an idea how to solve this?

Try restarting Steam.

I wish it was that easy :3

Go into:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam
and delete ClientRegistry.blob (make a backup of it just in case)
Then, restart Steam.

Let me know if that works.

Unfortunately it didn't work mh

Only thing I can think then is to delete the files in steamapps and redownload the whole game.

Actually, try to get Steam to download it first and see if it rediscovers the files.

Thx 4 your help. I will see about that ultima ratio. It's really strange. The only thing I did was installing Microsoft Security Essentials yesterday. But I doubt that there is any correlation.

Hi. I have the fix here.

It is hardcore and you need to have a good understanding but I lay it out clearly.

Considering this is a Steam issue, I also recommend you try out Steam support.

Solution was: I let steam download the game again and it asked me for a folder. So I choose the same where RO2 was still installed. Steam then said that it is checking the already installed files. This took some 5mins and RO2 was available to be played again. Phew that was lucky =)

Glad you got it working!

A good practice, is to have the Steam Client itself installed on your main drive (where your OS is installed), and since Steam now natively supports secondary installations (some titles don't) install the bigger, or less demanding games on your secondary.

Sometimes it can get pretty cranky if you say... reinstall windows and try to point the new fresh install's secondary folder to the one you already have. What I do, is pull the games out of that folder, delete it, let steam create the folder, and drag the folders from the original secondary folder back into the new one.

Not sure if that pertains to your issue, but, regardless, for anyone that it may, it helps.

Glad you got it fixed though!

You done the "delete local content" ?
Kaiserr1337 Apr 6, 2013 @ 11:36am 
No. I just chose the install folder for installing and steam recognized an installed game. I once brought my extern HDD to a friend and copied the games on his HDD then he bought some of the games and he didn't need to download them. That's pretty cool. So I would never delete the games ;D
