How to Verify the Integrity of Steam Game Files
If you regularly encounter crashes while playing a video game and the game world objects don’t work as they should, you probably need to check that the game files are in good condition.
To do this, restart your computer and launch the Steam client. Then you need to click on Library, and then, in this section, right-click on the relevant video game and select Properties. From there, you should see a tab called Local Files. Please click on it and then select Check Game File Integrity.
Checking the files will take a few minutes, so please take it easy for a while. Also, the speed depends on the performance of your computer and the Internet.
Please keep in mind that one or more files may not be verifiable. Don’t lose your head, this is normal. Just ignore it and move on.
