As the title is saying I installed "Left 4 Dead 2" from the DVD, but it still wants to download 9 GB. But let me first tell you how I had to install the game: I'm from Germany and as some of you maybe know in Germany games are often censored. Because of this I use to buy my games in retail in Austria. So I did with Left 4 Dead 2 and tried to install it but alway got "Connection timeout". I maybe have to say that I didn't bought the European-, but the UK-Version. I tried to install it while connecting by proxy-server and steam finally started installing the game. Well, it actually not started installing, it started downloading the game. 9GB of data it said. Because my internet connection is not that good I looked for a way to install the game by DVD and installed it by typing
"C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -install E:
in command line. E: is the DVD drive i was installing from, but I think you got that. So steam started installing from the DVD saying it installs about 4.2 GB. After the installation was finished I got to the steam library, but steam still wants to download 9 GB. It says 3.4 GB are already downloaded, but i think these came from the DVD, so there need to be downloaded 6.6 GB. By googling i found out that this is a kind of steam glitch or bug and now I want to know, if it's fixable and if it's even a bug or it actually needs to download these data. I would be very thankful, if anyone of you could help me. Sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes I maybe did, but I'm not a native speaker, so don't be that rude.
