View Full Version : Steam Validation Rejected..?

04-24-2011, 04:54 AM

Just recently (past few days), my game has been randomly been disconnecting from servers (mostly on my own server i just hired, very rarely on others, as if it had lost connection and then it says when i try to reconnect "Steam validation Rejected".

To fix it I have tried things in this order:

Delete/rename ClientRegistry.blob
Clear Gmod Cache Folder
add steamapp_id.txt to source_dedicated_server app folder
Verify integrity of Gmod/HL2 files
Delete all files in the steam folder except Steam.exe and the steamapps folder and then run steam.exe to reinstall.

Nothing so far has fixed it and i'm still getting the problem...

Before anyone asks, i own all the games i'm running legally, as you can see on my profile here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/BenSawedU
