Game is currently unavailable (Corrupt game files)

I tried running SS:BR (Win7x64) today (10-23-2012) after the update and got the title message. I've restarted Steam, done Properties->Local Files->"verified the integrity of game cache" and it tells me that everything's OK.

What else can I try?

What error exactly do you get?

Also go to Steam\steamapps\common\steelstorm\ and see if you have gamedata\ with pk3 files there, see if you have bin32\ with dll files and if you have .exe and SDL.dll

If all that present, might want to re-install the game.

There is no bin/ folder.
At one time there must have been since I've played the game in the past.

Following your suggestion, I re-installed the game.
I right-clicked on the game in the steam client and I selected "Delete local content".
After steam finished deleting the game, my "library" showed the game as not installed.
I again right-clicked the game and selected "Install".

After the download was complete, I again tried to play the game. Same error message as before:
Steam - Error
The game is currently unavailable (Corrupt game files)
I compared the contents of the original folder (which I had made a copy) and the contents of the just-downloaded steamapps/common/steelstorm/ folder.

The contents were identical.
There is no bin/ folder.

Here is the contents of my steelstorm folder:

Same exactly probelm for me, I tried to reinstall but nothing changed.

I checked in every folder of common/steel storm, but there is no SDL.exe and there is no bin folder at all!

I contacted Valve, because it could be an issue on their side. Basically there is a package with binaries that each OS downloads separately, depending on OS you are on. And the package with Windows binaries isn't being downloaded. So, stay tuned, hopefully it will be fixed today.

Ok, we'll wait for news. Thanks for helping us!

If this can help you, my OS is Windows XP SP3

Any luck guys? I e-mailed Valve and they got the message. However, I haven't heard from them all day.

Same situation here, for now i let the game installed waiting for new information. Let us know any news from Valve. Tomorrow I'll give a look to this topic when I'll wake up. Good luck, and thanks again for your efforts. Have a good day/night

I guess this is what the currently downloading, 30.2MB update is meant to resolve. I haven't tried the game in recent months so can't confirm the suspicion myself unfortunately as I don't know if I was ever afflicted with this issue to begin with.

Was out this evening... I just checked. There was a 30MB download and there is now a bin32/ folder and the game runs fine.

Issue is resolved.

Thanks.

As an aside, any chance the installer for the Humble Bundle #3 download will be updated? Currently "steelstorm-br-2.00.02818-release.exe" is what is available.

Cool beans!

No, HIB will never be updated. You might "thank" HIB team for that.
