katana error
ok, i havnt played in awhile but b4 they added this workshop everything was fine but now when i try to play online the katana is a giant neon error sign and noting i seem to do fixes it. i heared it could be from addons so deleated all of mine. no good, so i uninstalled the game and re installed it. nothing. and it is only online and only that katana and it's staring to really annoy me. my gf is having the same issue. i tried to verify integrity of game cache and it said "1 file failed to validate and will be reacquired" but nothing happend and the file wasnt reacquired. any ideas

I don't think it's a local issue, as all group members see the same ERROR in my experience. Also, I verify integrity from time to time and often get the same "1 file failed to validate..." message, so nothing to worry about there. Not sure what the problem is, but it'll probably get ironed out soon enough.

I think it's just Pinion servers having this issue, possibly because they installed 4 custom campaigns recently. I'm guessing one of them has a different skin for the katana, which causes errors in everyone who doesn't also have that campaign installed.

Sorry for the late reply: by group members I meant the other 3 human players in a campaign game. In the games I've played with the katana ERROR, everyone saw the error, suggesting that the error is server side rather than local.

I have the same the problem but only on them stupid ♥♥♥ pinion servers. I think them servers are the worst ones to play on. Was playing on a pinion server and was playing the passing and when the finale came rescue never even showed up.

Pinion servers are 3rd party servers contracted with Steam so as to be listed under Official. It costs steam nothing since they get ad revenue in return for increased views (since most people play on official).

So this is why sometimes (seems like most of the time now) you'll end up on a POS pinion server with a dialup connection.
