Happens to me too each time the game have to be manually shutdown= everytime I alt+tab! Or when my software firewall notices that the file is changed, and want me to confirm change, since it had to re-verify last time since my exe had changed, since my firewall popped up etc etc etc. I have to run without firewall, else I'm stuck in the loop!

I don't know, but I'd like an answer from either Rebellion or Steam. I like to know what my computer is downloading, why it's d/ling and who authorized it. I can verify cache, the game will d/l the file that ALWAYS seems to be missing, re-verify the game cache 2 seconds after it d/ls the file and have it d/l AGAIN.

Downloading the new file doesn´t help, it still keeps corrupted.

My game runs perfectly..but guess what..If you press this it always comes up with the one file is corrupt..Oddly it dopes this on three differnt rigs even if one of the rigs downloads the game afresh and then immediatley does a check..very odd..

So does anyone know what data this file contains? Maybe we can get an official response?

It seems to be the .exe's that's being reloaded, since their last modified dates always change to the time of the validating/downloading.

yes, I can confirm that (just checked). now we need to know WHY. I don't like having to needlessly write unnecessary files to my SSDs.
