I'm also from Switzerland and i've the same problem. It makes me angry to buy a game and wait until steam thinks, i should play it now.

Please help!

Hi you 2, can you please try shutting down Steam going to your Steam directory usually C:\program files\Steam or C:\program files\Valve\Steam.

There should be a file named ClientRegistry.blob and delete it, load up Steam you will be prompted for password, and see if it works now.

Thanks

Try this:

From Steam Forums

"We had this happen with a couple of people back when we initially unlocked. If I remember right, it was either deleting the ClientRegistry.blob or verifying the cache files which corrected it..."

Other have reported that just by trying to launch the game even though the update is not finished will start it moving again as well.

Good luck.

Hey, im just guessing it may be something to do with USK thing or other stuff relating.

Im at work and I dont know how to easily find out which content server is used by you, since I can't see any swis ones.

Try going to www.steampowered.com and clicking Support and opening a Support ticket or postion in the Sin Episodes sub forum.

Sorry about this.

If your update is stuck at 48%, like it was for me last night when I got home, right-click on "SiN Episodes: Emergence" in the Steam Games List and pick "Pause Updating."

Wait five seconds.

Right-click on "SiN Episodes: Emergence" and pick "Resume Updating."

It's a glitch in the Steam client that has been reported to Valve.

Mine was stuck at 95% for over 16 hours. I tried pausing and restarting with no go. I then rebooted because of a Windows Security Update and restarted Steam. Still nothing. I eventually had to Delete all Local Content and redownload SiN completely.

Same issue here.
The game got stuck loading at 48%. Stopping and restarting the download did not help. Deleting the game and restarting did not help either because now I am stuck at 0 %. Wondering what Steam has to say. Otherwise, back to the shop too .

I've sent an E-mail off to my contact at Valve trying to get some resolution to this. As soon as I have some information, I'll post it.

Early indications are that it may have been a hiccup with some Steam servers related to the "Day of Defeat: Source" patch, but I still haven't gotten any official response back from Valve.

I'll post as soon as I hear anything.
