steam auth ticket has been cancelled

Post by Randel » Wed Dec 20, 2017 11:03 pm

I'm stuck with this error.

I join ANY server and play for 5 minutes to 40 minutes before steam crashes and those still on the server say the console says
"Client left (steam auth ticket has been cancelled)"

Steam support and Insurgency support have been no help.

I have...
checked integrity of games files,
Signed out and then into VAC
reinstalled game (including all mods)
reinstalled steam
this happens on a variety of routers (in different countries)
I am using a MAC, but before you say buy a PC - game was playing fine on this machine before.

I am literally at my wits end and it has stopped me enjoying the game.

Anyone have any ideas?????

*enter joke about using a MAC*

Right, now we've sorted that, have you tried contacting Steam?

yes - long description given.

they said it was an insurgency thing.

insurgency said it was a steam thing.

searching around I think it's a steam thing as people have reported this issues with other steam games, but not one seems to have a solution.

could it be something with battleye? I notice that its on my machine, but not installed, as its not available for Macs. but then there are other Mac users on EBS who don't suddenly have this problem.

Have you tried playing it on different hardware (ie a windows pc or a Linux pc/machine)? If not, try that to rule out that it has anything to do with the hardware you're playing on.

don't have a PC to try it on.

all the mentions about this from internet searches are the same issue on PC's.

I can't find anything else to try next - after trying a total re-install yesterday.

Have you tried playing a different game through steam. So you can illuminate one or the other from the cause.

after reading that threat,playing with you several times while you´ve been crashed out and thinking about it for a long time maybe i´ve got an solution

a few weeks ago i have had a similar problem,
it was a bit different :
mostly i wasn´t able to join. the map started to download and after a time INS told me that i was disconnected from the server. people who were already on the server told me that the console said that there is a Steam VAC problem with my profile
then i deleted the game including all mods and reinstalled it without the mods

everything was good for a while and then, after 2 or 3 weeks i reinstalled the mods againg and that shit started to happen again
so i had to reinstal the game again without downloading my mods
and all worked good
after that i reinstalled mod per mod and had a play with each of the new settings. the maps on tarAn´s rotation did work, the character skins did work, the sound packs did..........
and then i realised that the problem was caused by a new 2Xred dot scope

maybe your problem is kinda same than mine was @ Randel

hmmmm.

I've tried other games one steam and it seems fine.

I've re-installed steam and it's been fine.

BUT - the only mod I use is the 2xDOT one. I'll take that off.

It that clears the issue I'll be very happy. will do it tomorrow and jump on for a game tomorrow evening. Great shout, fingers crossed, see you all tomorrow eve.
