I was wrong, though, since the validation found no problems with the installation and the game continued to not launch from the same error.
I'm curious as to what exactly the verify option does.
It is also expected to find use in certain metadata applications.The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is descriptively identified in the XML 1.0 W3C Recommendation as "an extremely simple dialect [or 'subset'] of SGML" the goal of which "is to enable generic SGML to be served, received, and processed on the Web in the way that is now possible with HTML," for which reason "XML has been designed for ease of implementation, and for interoperability with both SGML and HTML." Note that the "HTML" referenced in the preceding sentence (bis) means HTML 4.0 and 3.2 which were in common use as of 10-February-1998, when the XML 1.0 specification was published as a W3C Recommendation.The next version of 'HTML' is expected to be reformulated as an XML application, so that it will be based upon XML rather than upon SGML.I know on some other games I have tried it on, steam will end up downloading some files, but apparently not all files are included in this.It compares the game files you have on installed your computer with those of of the latest version on the steam servers.What happens is that it checks the games has all the proper files (sometimes if you want to mess with maps and stuff might accidentally delete some stuff so it adds all the right files!) This happened when I was trying to make Portal 2 and Stanley pabs together and I deleted some files accidentally."Extensible Markup Language, abbreviated XML, describes a class of data objects called XML documents and partially describes the behavior of computer programs which process them.XML is an application profile or restricted form of SGML, the Standard Generalized Markup Language.i tried to verify game integrity cache but when its done it tells me "1 file has failed to verify" how do i fix it?I realize that many times when there is an issue with a game on Steam, it can be solved with "Verify Integrity of Game Cache". I tried running Darksiders and it gave me an error of "Missing Executable", so I figured the verify would easily catch that and install the missing files.
