Some files are missing, that's for sure, and the verification system is having trouble detecting what it is. Try Updating to Steam beta, it fixed it for some people, but not me. Steam needs to get their ♥♥♥♥ together, why sell games on mac if they break after every update.I still have this problem too, even after updating Steam.
I have restarted steam, restarted my pc, deleted clientregistry.blob, tried to reinstall steam.GCF is a file format used by various Source games which essentially acts as a virtual hard disk for content; this file can suffer from internal fragmentation as files get changed and deleted, and this is the only kind of fragmentation Steam concerns itself with.The OS only deals with actual HDD fragmentation, which Steam has no knowledge about - for that to play a role, Steam would have to test file access times, which seems highly [email protected] Madsen Just because Steam has no knowledge of a problem does not mean the problem doesn't affect Steam and its decision to validate files.The only difference for me is that my validation is stuck on 40%, rather than 100%. Yes, I'm running TF2 on a Mac as well, 2009 Model, OS 10.6.7.The progress bar stops at 40%, sometimes 41% if I'm lucky. That's definitely not normal, and like someone else said it sounds like your hard drive is either very fragmented or possibly going bad.
Starting from today every time I start it up, it validates the steam cache files. One time I somehow managed to launch it, then my computer crashed because it was running to much stuff and now I can't get back on at all.
So **** it, I'm just going to reinstall the entire game for the FIFTH TIME to see if that changes anything.
I don't have access to any TF2 maps in Gmod, so my guess is that something messed up when installing (I did get a random blue screen right the **** out of nowhere today when it was at 100% (with 100% apparently not meaning it's done) so that could be it). What I did:-Backup Local Files to an external memory drive-Delete all local content-Restore the back up-Play TF2Considering you reinstalled a bunch of times, not sure it'll work.

HLDS is a special case: the App ID is always 90 and a mod must be chosen first. Example: install and validate beta version of the Counter Strike: … I’m always nervous about making blanket statements, because the nature of game development is that everything has to make sense for the specific game you’re building. Roughly three months have passed since Valve unleashed its Steam digital distribution … And when I’ve joined 3 servers, i can go back into the 2 first.
The only difference for me is that my validation is stuck on 40%, rather than 100%. Mine is also stuck at 40% validating for both TF2 and CS: S. Go to the \team fortress 2\tf folder, backup your maps, screenshots and whatever else and delete the \team fortress 2\ folder (or just backup the folder somewhere else and copy the maps back later), and try to launch TF2. I remember playing a few rounds earlier and i had no sound.
