Im Sorry if this has been covered here before but im on the verge of explosion....
the other day i loaded up steam to notice my Football manager 2012 game was due an update...however it did not move past "download starting status" so today after reading online how to fix this....i "deleted local content" which uninstalled the game...okay cool.
i then thought i was ahead of it and thought it would be all good now so i clicked install game...NOPE...unbelievable...i have the same error...only now its when i install it...
I think the advice meant verify integrigty of game cache not delete local content! Its was either that or delete a certain file which names evades me at the momentm I have always felt "delete local content" is a confusing wording, even though its technically correct.
Got the exact same problem. Steam Suppor Service is useless. After giving me plenty of not working solution (delete files, cache and so on) they didn't found anything better that to tell me to contact the developer support service, because it is a game problem, not steam's.
It's a shame. I bought a game and I'm not able to play it during the holiday, and maybe never more.
I want my money back, and, even if I'm a FM supporter from ten years, I will not buy a FM game as soon as it'll be out with the steam service!

Reason: keep it clean please.
I read it all, but nothing changed.
I completely uninstalled the game. Now it appears that the game is ready to be played without the update but when I click on play button it appears the same message "Steam servers are too busy, please try again in a few minutes"
Are you seriously telling me that I'm the only one experiencing problem with Steam? Come on, don't be hilariuos.
I do not have any problem, the problem is of Steam. The message that appears says "Steam Server is too busy at the moment".
Of course I need my problem with Steam to be resolved, but how? Are you able to give me a solution? I'm not a friend, I'm a customer, I paid money to have a game that is supposed to work. I've not subscrbed at this forum to make friends. And you, or someone for you, are supposed to provide a solution. This is not happening, all I get is some retorical answer like the one above.
Give my money back or solve this problem.
please exit from Steam and go to the Steamapps folder (default is C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps) and delete any listed .ncf files for the specific games. Once complete, please restart Steam to test the issue.
I've the exact same problem with my Steam on my Mac (OS X 10.7 Lion).
I have just deleted all the content in Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Steam.
Now Steam are downloading FM12 again...
I hope this work.
(Sorry for my bad english)
EDIT: It worked! I re-downloaded FM12 and now it's running again. Hurray!
Thanks to kwerthan I solved too!
And not for the wake advice of the Steam Support Service, not for the so called Technical support of this forum (Aim_Less, did you notice that we were talking about mac?) or the irritating moderator (i didn't wrote to quit on Steam, I just think there must be another way to update the game).
Anyway here is:
If you have the same problem all you have to do is:
- quit Steam
- go to the folder:
User/[your user name]/Library/Application Support/Steam
and delete every single file and folder inside (the magical support wrote to save the Steam Apps folder, wrong!)
- once deleted all, restart your mac and the Steam application. It should begin the download of the update and everything will be fine.
Now I hope that Sega e SI understand that there must be a way to be indipendent from the Steam System.
