TF2 Addons glitch

Postby fightingirish on Wed May 06, 2009 11:51 am

Hi all. New here and am dumping my problems on you guys already.

I was playing on the UKCS1 server last night. For some reason I cant use my add ons. It says the server has lost connection to steam and unlocks are not allowed.

However, other guys playing on the server had, and were using their add ons. Its not just UKCS servers either, it has been like this for a few days.

Sorry if this matter has cropped but before but couldnt find a thread regarding this.

Anyone got any ideas or a fix for this. I am going mental.

welcome to the forums.

As far as your problem is concerned, I don't know :(

I am sure someone else can help though, just give it time they will post here.

Steam was having problems yesterday (steam friends was on and offline a lot), so maybe it was just that? Try again in a while and see if you can.

And you may want to give more details as to what addons you were trying to use, as they may not be allowed on UKCS servers anyway.

I belive he's referring to unlocks and if you still have the problem or ever do, try deleting your clientregistry.blob from the steam directory. It seems to fix most problems.

problems with unlocks its down to steam, so if it goes down for you or when you join any server then your unlocks will be unavailable to you, if i remember correctly on Tuesday parts of steam was down for hours which didn't effect steam logon. The only other time i have seen this is when there has been dodgy links between my isp and the USA.

Welcome to the forum btw :)
