Hi,

I got a copy of Black Ops today, followed the install instructions as per normal, get to a screen saying STEAM is updating and thats it.

Sometimes it gets to 4% after 10 mins then goes back to 0%. It is not say unresponsive etc, just doesn't update.

The game box says you must have a STEAM account to install, I have 1 and even made a new one, but I don't even get to sign-in, all it says is "updating 0%"

ideas please...

Sometimes Steam can be a bit slow. Give it at least 30mins or longer to update if nothing happens then log on to the Steam support forum and ask there.

It also could be that the servers are under a bit of strain or have no open download slots, given that it was only released today.

Could try reinstalling stream.

steam being slow and the servers being under strain are different. steam is always slow. the servers aren't often under strain.
or something, I don't know. I

And I gave him a link, if nothing else.

Thanks for the replies..took 3 hours to get STEAM updated! Quite often it would get to 4 - 6% then do nothing, it got to 19% once and then done nothing - not once did it ever say it was not-responding. The time it did work it actually did say it was not responding for about 5 mins then finally done the update. I'm lost for reasons just happy the damn thing actually went in the end :)
