Files will not validate
It looks like a similar problem to has resurfaced.

I recently decided to play the game again (it's been a few months) and the graphics are corrupted (no background graphics, just the individual enemies, items, etc). I tried verifying the game and files and it said the one file failed and will be reacquired. Even after that, it still fails to validate. I also tried completely removing local content and restarting Steam. Same thing.

Anyone else having problems?

Did you try to delete ClientRegistry.blob and AppUpdateStatus.blob in the root directory of Steam? If no, try to do it.

Have you checked your disk for errors? I made a clean install of the game and it works perfect.
Also, did you check your anti-virus software? It can cause some troubles. Try disabling it when you update Steel Storm.

I deleted the two .blob files and let the Steam client run its updates. I then cleared the local content for the game and redownloaded it, but it's still saying it failed to validate. The drive checks out fine. I even tried installing the content to a completely different drive and it still failed.

Incidentally, I'm pretty sure when I first tried to play the game again recently, Steam said it needed to update the files to a newer format. Not sure if that makes a different.

Is there any way to do a lower level troubleshooting for valid game files? Maybe a SHA1 list of the files under the steelstorm directory that I can compare to my files? It's interesting that Steam says it's validating one file, yet there are hundreds of files in the steelstorm directory. Maybe that's just a weird Steam quirk.

I checked content_log.txt and found a line that seems to identify the failed file (which doesn't sound like a critical file)

[2012-12-21 00:43:14] Validation failed: "installscript.vdf" (size)

While in the game, I do get errors in the quake-style console referring to missing bsp files or some such, but I can't find a key to bring the console back up to fully read them

Were you able to resolve the issue?

I went ahead and gave it another try, and it seems to (mostly) be working now. I initially loaded the first training level and it looked like this:

After I moved around a bit, the background eventually filled in and it seemed to look normal.

I noticed another post where someone commented about a similar issue (black backgrounds), and I see you requested a console dump. I've put one up here:

There were a few errors towards the bottom regarding some function calls.

It's a bug of Nvidia video driver. Either update to 310.xx series or go to console and type:

r_shadow_shadowmapping_filterquality 1

press Enter, and you should be good to go.

I updated my NVIDIA drivers and the function call errors went away (and the graphics seem to be loading better now too).

I did notice a few other texture loading errors in the console when I started one of the levels, although they didn't seem to affect the game play. The results are below if you are interested

Cool stuff!

Those are nothing to worry about. Just collision shaders seems to be having a fit :)

If you look into Doom 3 BFG console (playing RoE) you will see as many warning and errors, if not more ;)
