View Full Version : TF2 error - Failed to start in-process steam service.

Can someone please give me a hand with this error. I get it in the console of our TF2 servers.

Executing dedicated server config file
steamservice.cpp (275) : Assertion Failed: Failed to start in-process Steam Service

I also cannot see our servers in the server browser.

Not sure how to fix it, the console continues and it appears to be running.

sv_pure set to 1.
Note: Changes to sv_pure take effect when the next map is loaded.
