Steam uploading error

#1 Post by yuuri88 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 2:55 am

I don't know if I can ask this question here.

So here's the problem about what we faced:

The game's VDF of appid and depots was all done, but when we running steamcmd's run_app_build it failed.
The message below is what it failed:

Steam>run_app_build C:\Users\USER\Desktop\sdk\tools\ContentBuilder\scripts\app_build_******0.vdf
[2019-10-06 13:02:57]: Starting appID ******0 build (flags 0x0).
[2019-10-06 13:02:57]: Building depot ******1...

Building file mapping...
Scanning content
[2019-10-06 13:02:58]: ERROR! Build for depot ******1 failed : Failure

When we find the error deeper on the folder of output
,we found this:

[2019-10-06 13:02:58]: ERROR! Failed to initialize depotID ******1 build : Access Denied
[2019-10-06 13:02:58]: ERROR! Failed building depots chunks

We use V1.46 of the steamsdk version.
Hope someone can answer me ASAP. Thanks a lot!

I don't think that has anything to do with ren'py you should contact steam support about that error

possibilities are:

you have imputed the wrong username & password
you don't have a dev account
or steam has rejected your game for some reason
