What ever Game I launch from Steam it shows up the dialog
Preparing to launch and it gets stuck some times or takes hell lot of time. It wasnt happening previously ! Is there a fix for this ?
Try verifying your game cache. To do this follow the instructions below.
- Load Steam
- From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
- Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.
- Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
- Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.
It is likely the update has caused a problem.
Doing this should fix it, along with many other problems that people encounter. If anything is ever wrong with a steam game, try this first.
Steam verifies your login everytime you start a game like CS 1.6.
It can launch instantly or take time if steam servers are still verifying your Credentials.
You can type netstat in cmd to check that it is trying to connect to steam servers.
