Thumbs down Missing Executable [Workaround in First Post]

While we continue to work closely with Valve and SEGA to resolve the "missing executable" errors for those in regions where the game has been released, some users are reporting that a forced cache update (performed by following the steps below) solved it for them:
Quote:
- Exit Steam
- Find the Steam install directory (usually c:\program files\steam) and delete the \appcache folder.
- Restart Steam
Let us know if this does (or doesn't) solve the issue for you.

Hahaha, that is comical!! I'm not laughing at their expense or frustration. I'm just laughing at how badly this whole thing is doing at the mo.

Hopefully they will have it sorted out very quickly, its not fair that they're missing out.

Yes it is amusing.. Unfortunately there are many who are not seeing the humour in it. I had a chuckle when I went to run it and it came up with the missing executable message.. I do hope they fix it soon..

.exe files are not usually part of the preload files.

This is not the first game with steam that went to a released state in the store page to only go back to unlocks in # hours after some time. It's happened twice to me with preloads with steam, can't recall the games at the moment but defiantly remember it happening before, even saw the one game pop into the new releases tab on main page to disappear from it back to comming soon after a couple hours.

Umm .. yes but you see.. it is being shown as OUT on the steam store page.. as in a big ass advert shouting that the game has been released.. So if they have screwed up then it is a friggin huge one..

enex, Fire_Spy: it's already 12.2.2013 here in Australia - the game is OUT here and it's unlocked on Steam for us, as it's supposed to be.

But we have no executable file.
