I've recently downloaded Team Fortress 2, and after playing a bit, I turned it off. on Steam it was still telling me that it finnished downloading TF2, so I turned the download progress thing off. When I went to play it again from the store page, it said "FREE TO PLAY--[INSTALL]" I had already installed it, but I pressed the install, and nothing happend. Please help!!!!

Hmm, interesting problem. Not sure of the exact fix, but here's some stuff that could help:

  • Keep your downloads on. TF2 updates constantly, and it may well be that you've accidentally got an obsolete version (which may be crazy to think of, but anything's possible.)
  • Delete the local content, then reinstall it.
  • Quit Steam and reopen it.
  • Reinstall Steam. It doesn't take very long at all, really, and it does actually work. Helped me install Civ V.

I have one tiny problem. I CAN'T PLAY WITH HUMANS!!!!! I tried to join my friend's game and it said "SERVER NOT RESPONDING." Even before this I couldn't play with people only bots in training mode. Is there something I can enter in the Dev Console? A patch to download? Wait for an update? I CANNOT THINK STRAGHT ANYMORE!!!!!

Hmm, another interesting problem. I've never had any trouble with TF2 apart from some lag.

When it says "Server not responding", typically for me it means that the server is full, and so you can't get in anyway. So that might be one thing.

Another is if you're trying to get a game through the first button. I've always struggled to get good games with those, mostly due to bad ping with American servers. What you want to do is go through the server list and find the best one for you. If you like it, or even if it simply works, save it to Favourites, and you'll have a solid server.

If all else fails, you might have to delete it and re-download it. Good luck, sir.

check your steam settings connection speed. if it's too high, you can't join servers, at least for me.
