I recently deleted and reinstalled Steam and my games because they weren't working properly. I just finished installing Portal 2, hit play, and it showed an error message:

Unable to load manifest file ‘scripts/game_sounds_manifest.txt’

Does anyone know any solutions?

    Please try to find that file – it should be inside SteamApps/common/Portal 2/portal2/scripts/, delete it and verify the game files again. Steam should redownload it. – Koraktor Jul 27 '16 at 11:16
