Just wanted to bring this issue to a Dev's attention: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1076392

There is a solution mentioned later in the thread that seems to work as a temporary fix, but it would be nice to have it fixed. It can't be good for our hard drives to be writing so often.

edit: can't open a ticket, either. every time i try I'm on the Support tab i get the "Almost Finished" blurb about following the final confirmation directions in an email that is never sent to me no matter how many times i've asked for it to be resent. No, it isn't in my Spam folder, either.
I changed my server from Chicago to Dallas and it started working.

Yeah seems that it was Chicago's turn to bork up, (hopped back to Denver) this happens with some games, so I usually just do the download server switch thing between a few and it ends up working fine, same with servers are too busy errors. I dunno why people always think they have to nuke installs.

because the official "try to fix it this way" page about the unavailable message said nothing about switching servers?

edit: also, this changes nothing for me. game data verified, unfragged, doesn't work offline or online. worth a shot, though.

Hallo, i just bought torchlight a few days ago, and i was able to play perfectly.

But since the afternoon of tuesday 22th december, when i load the game via steam, begins the loading screen of the game and then i have a message error saying "torchlight game executable has stopped to work", and i come back to steam program.

I have win vista with an ati radeon hd 4670.

Nothing has changed in my pc, except for the backup of torchlight i made via steam, and all worked properly.

I tried to change the download server as suggested in the forum (instead of germany i put italy/switzerland, where i live), nut nothing happened. I also have rebooted several times steam and my pc, setting down the firewall (I have comodo internet security), but invane...

Please give me an help cause i'm very disappointed, i'm new to steam and bought yesterday fallout game of the year edition (and it crash several times when i'm playing) and just now i'm downloading GTAIV, as can i say, that's not a good start for my steam experience!

Yea, that Steam backup thing is so broken, next time just backup the whole steamapps directory.

Anyhow, try verifying your GCFs for Torchlight.

thank you, i did it as mentioned on your link, but it still doesn't work!

Anyway, should i cancel the entire game via steam and reinstall? and what about my saved games, where i can backup them? i know about steamcloud, but i read that doesn't work properly...

A reinstall would not hurt.

If you played the game with the characters when Steam cloud was active they should still be there, but if you want to be sure, your saved games are located in:

%appdata%\runic games\torchlight\save\

and if you played before Steam cloud, they might be in:

%appdata%\runic games\torchlight\savesbeforecloud

Goto your start menu, click Run, then paste that into the run box and hit enter, it's a hidden folder, that's why you cannot find it, unless you do it that way, or you make hidden folders and files visible.

If it existed then you probably won;t have a savesbeforecloud folder.

No problem.

The servers are overloaded, chances are if you use a network meter you'd probably see it is downloading in the background, you can try this anyway:

In Steam, click File, then Settings, then Downloads tab, and select a different download region, if that fails, exit Steam, then go into your Steam directory (it will have Steam.exe in it) and delete your clientregistry.blob file, then restart Steam.

Nothing, i reinstalled the game, and deleted the blob file but steam annoingly says "the game is not available"...how can i imagine steam defeats piracy if people pay for games that are not able to play?

It's probably still being downloaded, the error is not permanent.
