View Full Version : hl2.exe crash

12th June 2013, 02:24
i wouldn't post this if it was like any other post i have read, steam support has not answered my request after five weeks.
after looking over at least a hundred posts, i still run into the issue of hl2.exe crashing on startup. every thread i've read has been closed before an actual solution was posted. i really need help.
starts up, after the valve screen it crashes. event viewer gives me this:

Faulting application name: hl2.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x4445c334
Faulting module name: scenefilecache.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x4474ce19

i have tried solutions related to scenefilecashe.dll, moving steam back to my C:/ drive, reinstalling directx, updating drivers, and reinstaling steam.

Can you play the Source SDK Base 2006 (steam://run/215) tech demo thing?

If nothing in the "cannot start hidden" sticky thread helped then I'm afraid your shit out of luck :(

darn, it seems every forum and thing i looked at was closed before they actually posted a solution that helped :(

Because they all have been answered before?
