Thumbs down Steam broke my Skyrim in new patch.

FIXED:
After fiddling and reinstalling several times I went into my steam folder (steamapps/commmon/skyrim) and right-clicked TESV.exe and disabled "Run As Administrator". This has fixed my problem. I still stand by Steam being annoying, but hopefully this helps those of you who couldn't just use the 'cache fix'. Thank you for the input anyways.

So I click 'Play' and it opens up the Skyrim launcher. I click 'Play' on the launcher. That closes and then another launches mystically appears to take its place. No game :/

I have
1) Verified game cache files
2) deleted the steam blob file to force a steam re-update

My PC is more than capable of playing this game (i72600k, gtx580, etc. you get the idea)

It was working just last night, and now after the patch it doesn't.

I have no mods and no .ini changes.



annnnd I just got back from work hoping to relax for the night but once again steam is a big steaming pile of fail. Woot woot! Oh how I love the way they forced DRM.

Any ideas?

Please read the whole post, because I don't want 50 people telling me to verify the cache when I've done it 4 times already. I also don't want "what are your PC specs derp, can you handle dis game derp?".

Cheers!

Had the same problem just now. Restarted steam and it downloaded something else. Not sure what it did, but it works now for me.

If you haven't restarted steam since the update, I suggest you do so, you might be lucky.

I'm getting constant CTDs now. It happens after 30-40 seconds of playing, every time I try to play. I haven't had a single problem before this patch, so there's no doubt in my mind that the patch broke the game.

This thread is for a different issue. I'd prefer you to post something relevant. I can't even get INTO the game

EDIT: well, I guess that is kind of relevant if you think about the thread title lol.

There's no need to clutter up the front page with everyone's patch problems. One thread is good enough.

Kind of like how Steam is cluttering up my time by releasing a game breaking patch for me? Yeah cool.
