Steam Validation Rejected
« on: 27 February, 2012, 10:10:48 AM »
When I was playing with my friend via co-op,  it kicked me out saying "Steam Validation Rejected"  it only does this on this mod. It keeps doing this everytime I try to enter a multiplayer match.

Any tips on how to fix this?

Did the server you were trying to enter have VAC on?
It's also possible the Steam servers may have been undergoing temporary maintenance that thus refused any validation requests.

We had to have a private network via tunngle,  then it kept saying steam validation rejected and when I go to regular VAC servers it does the same thing.   I only have this problem on this mod.

Do you have any programs that could possibly block the connection, such as a firewall or program like PeerBlock running? Do your friends receive the same error?

I did get this during beta testing, and just to be clear: This is NOT (that means NO-NO, or NO FUCKING WAY) and official fix.

Quit Steam. Delete the clientregistry.blob in your main Steam folder, launch Steam again and let it update. Try again.

If it doesnt work, post here!

I am not staff, but obviously you aren't the only one who gets this error while playing a game on steam.

It is a common steam glitch/bug, and there are obviously answers hidden in the steam user forums.
There used to be something here.
Now there is none.

As I said, it is a common problem.

There are always other common solutions, i.e, REinstalling.
But as steam validation it is, does your friend or you happen to NOT be playing CoF from steam?

Steam Validation Rejected - It means it can't reach your steam ID(Can't get your info, as in, your steam id (STEAM:0blahblahblah)
There used to be something here.
Now there is none.

This should only happen when one of these 2 things happen.

1. You have a cracked version of half life.

2. steam servers are down.(If you are not connected to steam friends network then steam servers are probably down, like atm.)
