L4D2 won't launch!
I don't know if anyone else is encountering this issue but, when I click the play button, the little box stating that L4D2 is preparing to launch pops up and then just disappears. The game won't start whatsoever. I've tried deleting the .blob files and all that but nothing is working.

I don't know if this is of any consequence but whenever I try to verify the cache files, there is always one file that is missing or something like that.

I used to play this game quite a bit. Does anyone know if this could be related to the recent beta activity?

I've had a similar problem trying to play single player

how do you leave it? And verifying doesn't do anything.

Mine won't run properly either! I recently did a fresh install of windows, copied all steam games over, I validated the game files and it launches the intro which I press esc, then it says loading for a few moments before quiting :/

give it some time to start

I have, it doesn't jump to the loading screen for me or anything. I've even watched the task manager the game just closes out after preparing to launch. I've been jonsing for some good zombie killing action for like a week now.

Okay, I finally successfully validated the files and it fixed 1 file and now it works fine. I hope you solve your problem too gahji

I have a similar problem, but I crash when I try to play single player. Defragmenting and redownloading doesn't work, and it says 1 file failed to verify when I try to verify the files

I've had the same problem. Hasn't worked for me for about 2 weeks. >:(

Same here, Shadow. I finally got an email saying something like try deleting the steam.dll file and the clientregistry.blob and then restart steam and it should update and work but I haven't tried it. I'm taking a break from steam for awhile.
