Game needs "Install" as if I have never downloaded it before.

Recommended Posts

DESCRIPTION OF BUG (required: if the possible provide screenshots or video):
Played a game, BTW great job on connectivity I no longer have to wait three game loadings, and I needed to shut it off quickly.
So I went into task manager and pressed end task after quitting the game (Please why does it still run for like another 5 minutes when you press the exit button?).
And I'm not sure if it was because I pressed the "End Task" button too much and shut off a necessary function but then I got a "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED" error on my PC.
And now when I open steam it says I need to reinstall the game as if I never installed it in the first place.
But when I go into "Local Disk (C:) -> Program Files (x86) -> Steam -> steamapps -> common" I can see that I still have World War 3 downloaded, all 40 GB.
I was thinkin, maybe if I run it from the folder, steam might pick up on that and realize that it's still installed.

GAME BUILD ID (required: please go to the game's properties on Steam and find it under the local files tab at the bottom): Since the game is "not installed" I cannot find it in properties. But the last update I received was in the last 2 days concerning Patch 0.1.1

STEPS TO REPRODUCE (required)

  1. Start the game, (All 10 minutes of it, can you please lower it, It's the only reason I don't play more)
  2. Quit the Game With Quit Button
  3. End the task from task manager
    1. (Optional) Maybe end an important task to the computer to make it crash
  4. Restart PC
  5. Open Steam
  6. Tada?

SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS (required for crash or performance issues):

i7-7700 (Locked)

GTX 950

8GB of RAM

1 TB HDD 

(Note: I don't want to hear "Upgrade [Insert Part Here]" If I can run R6S and Battlefield 1 at medium settings and have 60-100 FPS then It's fine)

CRASH LOG (if any): Naw dawg, nothin!

Hey, by error did you mean you get the blue screen of death?

Well, it was blue. It had a QR code, it told me collecting data and it had the error plus a percentage (which I assumed that it was the data being collected)

This kind of error could be caused by different things.

  • Old or broken hardware drivers
  • Registry error in your operating system
  • Viruses or other malware
  • Conflict new drivers with others
  • Broken or deleted system files
  • Damaged hard drive or ram

I also want to point out that the two only times I've ever had this happen was when I recently played WW3

Win key>start typing cmd>RMB run as an admin then type in cmd:

CHKDSK C: /F /R

then press Y and hit enter, pc will restart and check for corrupted files.

Then next time repeat steps to run CMD and type:

SFC /scannow

let me know.

Yeah, you failed to mention the "Takes 8 hours if error pops up" It also got stuck at 20%... Also, maybe telling me that sfc /scannow takes 45 minutes usually would help.
Although I'm gonna clean my junk files with disk utility Im DEFINITELY not running chkdsk until tonight.

Goddamnit, well it's also my fault for going straight into it without any research but still.

 

Thanks, I restarted the PC, I stopped the chkdsk function, I tried running sfc /scannow, it didn't work I restarted the PC and now it has to repair windows. You really couldve added more info.

It may be my fault for doing all this but I am fairly certain that I would have never had these issues had I known it would take this long. I probably wouldn't have even done it.

Sorry man, no idea how much files you have on your HDD :) and you never clean your disk. Also, it's should be done in safe mode only.
