... Thought I'd ask you guys..

So, I started up Steam (after a long time) because I
wanted to play a little CS: Source (don't know why.
I hate the game), but Steam says it isn't installed..
What's up with that? Checked website, couldn't find
anything.

Help me. :D

Now it says it's 100% ready...

Did they do something to Steam (other than the
visual change) since the last time I opened it (July,
I think)?
I watch you...

Weird... I haven't fired up steam in months.  I hope I don't have the same issues.

They changed the UI a lot. When I click HL2, HL2:DM
or HL:Source, I get a "Launch" option. But when I click
CS:Source, I only get "install."

Grrr.

just for future reference for you guys, if that ever happens again. Instead of uninstalling, delete your clientregistry.blob and your .gcf files (gcf files found in steam\steamapps\username). That gives you a fresh start to reinstall the games.


But yeah...steam blows.
