Supreme Commander 2 Steam Fix: Re-Verify Cache

By Brian Leahy, Mar 02, 2010 10:11am PST Users are reporting that Supreme Commander 2, which uses Steamworks as its DRM, will not properly launch through Steam despite being released officially at midnight PST last night.

Users may see a "game is unavailable" error when attempting to launch Chris Taylor's latest RTS. If this is the case, please refer to the following troubleshooting steps:

Supreme Commmander 2 works now after you re-verify your game cache: Right Click "Supreme Commander 2" in your Game Library > Properties > Local files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache > Let it Finish > Launch Game.

I can confirm that this works and that the game is up and running.

  • The DRM on this game SUCKS. I just bought the game at Frys for 49 dollars! I took it home and attempted to install and play. Wow, I wish I could install and play. The game box says it needs 4-5 GB of hard disk space. The actual install says it needs around 2 GB. I typed in my code and it apparently partially installed the game. Once finished, I tried to launch the game in steam and got the "game is not accessible message." I tried the fix mentioned here about verifying the game cache files. No help there. And steam apparently wants to apply a huge patch to the game and tells me to wait 3 HOURS to play!
    You have got to be kidding me. I am starting to turn to the dark side. Just pirate the game and let your missing dollars do the talking. We, who pay for the games, want to install and play! If the makers of the game can't make something that works then what are we supposed to do? HACK? CHEAT? PIRATE? UNLOCK? STEAL?
    And as far as the ubisoft ruining of Silent Hunter 5 with a CONSTANT INTERNET REQUIRED requirement... they have just completely lost any and all money from me and anyone I recommend purchasing decisions to...
