CTD, 1 file failed to validate etc
Hi, I'm new on Steam. It's been two days since I started installing Skyrim. Then the Steam update came and ctds as well. I reinstalled the game once, then uninstalled it twice but the problem remains, an error appears "1 file failed to validate and will be reacquired", then nothing happens. The game crashes when I'm in the cart. No mods, OS reinstalled.
Some people have this problem too and I see there's no way to fix it. I've got Legendary Edition on dvd and it seems a waste of time.
Does Steam fix this kind of things or I just have to throw the game away?

Want to hear something funny. There are no references on my disk to skrim except the shortcut. The game is there, but I have to look for the hidden files (won't unhid either) which is a pain. I did eventually find them (several days later) Now if I could only remember where they are hidden. The point! This game insatlls itself anyway it pleases and crashes when ever it pleases even if you never change a thing. It is as if it has a mind of it's own. Delets hours played also. Went from 212 hours to 210 after playing another 8 hours which should have given me 220. It crashed to Steam page, uploaded an update to steam and showed 210 hours, but my saves were intact though, :)

when anyone verify integrity of game cache it says the same thing to everyone-do not worry about it-just play the game

Thanks for the advice. I'll try.
How to install vcredist/dotnetfx/directx manually?

Oh I'd love to get out of Helgen, but now I can't even get out of the cart :)

File it can't validate is your graphic card which is done when loading game. I think its your graphic card reduce settings and try.
Otherway is in data file untick DLC's and try
If works get unofficial patches, retick DLC's boxes and then put patches on(must BE IN SAME ORDER AS ESM's) and they follow HR Textures packs

One or more files may fail to verify. (from Steam's help page.)

"This is normal for most Steam games. The files that fail to verify are local configuration files that should not be replaced as part of this process. You can safely ignore this message."

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335

also, as Kelvy suggests, uncheck your mods from the data section of the game's splash screen and play the intro without mods untill you are well out of the cave.

Hi, thanks. It works on low settings and with dlcs disabled (disabling dlcs only didn't work).
The problem is that the first time (before first reinstall) game actually worked fine (until the update) on ultra settings. I got out of the cave and then installed enb. Everything was working smoothly on ultra + enb and now I have to play on low?
Can I go back to ultra settings when I'm out of the cave now?

in order to keep your game stable, i wont change to ultra. but it is your thing if you end up stuck again ;)
Kelvy 11. sep 2013 kl. 2:08pm 
Try med or high settings, I only play mine on high(Its just as good as ultra). At least you know the cause and adjust to suit.
Cheers

High, med, low.. game still crashes (high - 1min, med - 5min, low - 30min).
So it's a graphic card problem. That's strange though, I don't have problems with other games, never had the problems with high settings, enbs etc.
Thanks for your help anyway!

Have you any city enchancement on? I have deactivate Solitude Whiterun Winterhold and Dawnstar. My game runs now no glitches
Beautiful Whiterun mod I got dirty edits(will reload that one later) just to check because I had that isolated while crashes were happening.
One or all the others are the cause
Morthal, Helgen reborn and Shorstone are all ok.
Maybe remove your graphic mods off then add then one at a time from a good save and exit add another and start from that save and exit (do not save each time) and repeat.
Cheers

I have no mods.
But I turned down hi res texture pack and the unofficial patch for it. It seems ok on ultra or high now.. Do you know any issues regarding the texture pack or its patch? Maybe something with legendary edition?
El Presidente Miku 12. sep 2013 kl. 8:31am 
there should be no issues as long as you dont install mods wrong or tweak ini settings.
