Once you buy a steam game, you can use it on any computer, provided that the computer can run it. There should be no need to re-buy the mac versions of the same games, though you will need to download the mac versions of the game to your new computer.

When you open Steam on the Mac, your game library is by default shown with a filter for games released under the "SteamPlay" label. Buying games with this label always gives you the Mac version or the Mac and Linux versions for free in addition to the Windows version of the software.

Type op [username] into the actual server console (so not the in-game console, in the command window that your server runs in).

Some games only run on Windows. These games, obviously, will not run on your Mac and do not appear by default in your library. Unfortunately, this is a technical limitation which generally cannot be worked around by giving Valve more money. WINE, as mentioned in another answer, may give you some success, but in my experience, it is very case-by-case in ...

It's just suggesting a resolution setting for you. You don't really say whether it gives you the option to change it at that moment or what monitor you have etc., but you should be able change your resolution and run the game just fine.

Common scenario when you have a game engine/technical design that is bad. This is very sifnificative of such a problem, as the GPU throughput is not kept up to maximum.

You may be a victim of Keyboard Ghosting: "Ghosting" is the problem that some keyboard keys don't work when multiple keys are pressed simultaneously. The key presses that don't show up on the computer or seem to have disappeared are said to have been "ghosted".

I had this problem tonight too. My wife logged onto a LAN game I was hosting, but instead of having all her gear, she had nothing. So I opened the game appdata file for the world and looked at the player data. It showed three files: One hadn't been played in 24 hours (Which I assume was hers) One had logged off 5 minutes ago (Which I assume was the bad ...

Solution I ended up leaving the Florence city and coming back through a quick travel booth, which appears to have restored the objective marker. Other things I tried without success: I decided to try downloading another save file from this website and can't see objectives on that either. I also reinstalled the game (keeping my save file in a separate ...

To execute a stunned zombie on the ground, you need the Stomp skill. As far as I've experienced on the PC, when you see the x-ray skeleton, that part of the zombie is "stunned" or otherwise impaired. The kick-stun skill alone does not enable you to execute zombies. From your comments the "execute with E" text refers to the act of performing the kick, like ...

After fiddling with the game settings several times it eventually stuck.

Quoting from the Nexus Page: After uninstalling things are bad overall with first person view (camera in clouds, camera on horse feet, bow aiming goes extra far, camera is bouncing around, ...)
