Silly steamapps question.
 
I had Windows 7 x86, before. And I decided to do a reinstall, because I was having numerous problems. I decided to go with x64 this time, and I installed steam, and I just copied my steamapps folder on a hard drive, external. Then I pasted them on my new install.
CSS is crashing for me, and I was wondering if this had anything to do with the different operating systems? Would the game files change? Or do all steam games install in x86 or something?

Yeah...

Right click on the the CS:S game in your steam library screen. Go down to and select properties. Click on local files tab, then on "Verify integrity of game cache". Let it do it's thing and see if that fixes it. :)

I think you'll likely have to uninstall and re-install CS:S though- since you went from 32-bit to 64.

I'm just going to reinstall. Deleted local content, and the CS Source folder. 62 % already. Shaweet.

Yea the source engine supports 64-bit.

So should I delete all my games, and reinstall them all?

Nah, just source engine games.

I reinstalled CSS, it reset all my stats and achievements. Then it crashed in the middle of the game. Nothing has changed, except now, I have no stats.

What tool can I use to see the crash dump files?

IDK? :p


Um, the culprit was my Overclock. I need to get better cooling. Is that the only way? Without the OC, my game runs fine, with it, it crashes. I'm pretty sure it gets too hot, because If I start my PC in the morning and play, I can play for a good 30 minutes, but at night, when PC has been on the whole day, I can only play 5 minutes, MAX. So is there anything I can do?

Well what are your temps? You may just need more voltage.
