Smile Final working fix. If you want to play, you will want to see this!

Hi guys! THE CREDIT GOES TO CLOWNMUG, SINCE HE DISCOVERED THE CAUSE AND THE FIX!

You need to download this 3-part file, and then extract to steamapps/common/metro 2033

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PU9Z6Q8N
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ODL03B3H
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XWO9JHKU

EDIT :

I HAVE CONTACTED BOTH STEAM AND 4A GAMES. I'M WAITING THEIR REPLY ON WHEN THE OFFICIAL PATCH IS COMING. MEAN WHILE, USE THIS FIX. I'M WRITTING THIS WHILE I'M PLAYING ATM

EDIT 2 :
I HAVE RECEIVED AN ANSWER FROM 4A GAMES, QUOTING :

Hello Rafael, Thanks for writing. I am aware of the problem since Saturday as well, as I was trying to play the game myself. Though it's weekends and also a Labor Day holiday in USA, so it would be really optimistic to expect a fix before Tuesday. Unfortunately we cannot release a patch now, we have no control over Steam servers. I am not really sure at what step this file went missing in the submission process, because everything goes through THQ and then Valve. The most mysterious thing is that this update was available for beta testing much earlier and all the files were intact. Your fix it fine, this file did not change in this update, so you can use the one that was there before the update. Though make sure this file is coming from multilingual version that was purchased through Steam, the version from retail copies is incompatible and might cause instability. Best regards,Dmitry

EDIT 3 :

Yes, this works!!

Clownmug --- Big respect!!

To do the fix

Once you have either downloaded the file "content.vfs0" or obtained a copy, simply copy it to the following folder

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\metro 2033
or for 64 bit machines

C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\metro 2033

and hey presto! Metro 2033 should work!!

Fantastic work guys.
Rep to both yourself and clownmug for this effort.

Have you contacted 4A yet to tell them how to do their job?

No seriously... at least then 4A can tell Steam the issue and between them they can get a working fix for the people not on this forum etc.

how in the world could a developer forget a 1.7 gb file in a patch?
Thats just sad to be honest...

But thanks for the fix it works like a charme now.

Good to hear that the fix worked for a lot of people. It's strange though, I didn't think Steam could/should delete files like that...

Yeah, its weird. I have sent a message to steam and 4A games and THQ about the fix. I think we will get an official fix, i hope.

Well darn and rats poop!
I was able to download two first parts, but now that I was ready to download the third, it tells it's temporarely unavailable.

Oh well, better wait for the official patch then.

Well, in that case, I don't even want to try the second and third files.

It just took nearly an hour and a half to download the first one

Thank you all for finding this fix and taking the time to upload and post a link here, but think I'll wait.

Shame on who ever allowed this to happen in the first place.
