lol..topic says it all..seems majority of people had the issue where the game is not available at this time, please try again. Sure enuf..i went into the Steam folder to check wtf is going on..and the sp.exe file was missing O.o...seems like it deleted it self. Redownloading the entire thing again @ 4.4~MB/sec tho..also lucky that i can switch to my GA server for download since the data is unmetered for me -.-..

Man kinda disappointed of Steam..probably the first issue ive had..in...aaagggesss...:headexplode:

No luck. Trying to re-download again. The sp.exe file simply didn't get put on the folder..i can get into mulitplayer/etc..but the single player .exe file never gets installed..and i still have to finish that..ffs this is really annoying.

yea mate, i did everything.

Clientbob, everything u name it.

The problem is, steam dosen't install the sp.exe file. so ofcourse the game cant run in singleplayer mode because the file needed to run it..wont install no matter what i try. I just played MP no problem, works fine. There was a steam update which after that i can no longer access the single player mode.

Also the properties indicate cod4 is 4500MB..i think they screwed up there update somewhere..I might have to sit tight and wait to finish the sp mode :/.

I did 3 Reinstalls of it through steam, delete local content /etc.
I tried the copy trick
I tried the change english to language then back, then update..
clientbob..

everything and none works..no matter what i try , steam wont download the sp.exe file so something is screwy..

That's too bad. :(
I had problems too at first day of release on steam, but quickly found a way to fix punkbuster problem. I don't know what else there is left to try although you could validate game cache files so that steam reads which files exactly are missing.

Man, seems that steaming pile of crap gets worse and worse.
I try to avoid it, last issue for me was with Lost planet, I didnt look close enugh on the box when I bought it as I was way too excited about the game release only to see when I get home that I cant even install anything (no internet access @ home). Figured i bring over puter to friend, register and install the game and run it offline. Yeah right, that didn't work either. That has been fixed later with official patch, but man it suxx. Had to download fixed exe to play my new game >_>

Yeah, NOD32 quarantined iw3sp.exe during last night's update. The update failed, so I unquarantined it the file. Still was getting "game currently unavailable" message. I tried everything on the steam support site for this error without any success.

Finally I deleted all local content and am re-downloading. Sweet, only 10 more hours!

yea, it was NOD32, kept deleting my sp.exe. So it was not Steams fault in the end -.-.

Yes, but Steam is the gateway to launching it. They need a better system to recover from a failed update other than to download the whole frickin thing again. I don't want to wait another 10 hours to play something i already paid for.

Can't you just validate your files, and it will redownload the missing parts?

yep validate is the way, the problem was every time validate puts the new file it kept deleting thx to nod32 ..so it looked like it never downloaded.

And my download speed is nearly 4MB/sec..so it comes really fast..

I also love gaming at 1024x768 with bilinear filtering, no AA and red rings of death and overheating issues!

uh no, that didn't work for me. Tried doing that numerous times. I even uninstalled nod32. Validation would stall at 71%, then a few minutes later the progress window would disappear. When I re-started steam, it reported "100% Ready" in My Games, but was still fubared with same game unavailable error.

The only thing that fixed it was deleting all local content. Hey, at least I got my saved games back....10 hours later.

I wonder what console you're talking about. My 360 doesn't have any of those issues.
