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. You'll see either of these logos on games with SteamPlay: (Windows and ...

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. However, not all games for Windows work on Mac or Linux. That is why your mac specific games are less than ...

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 ...

How can I check with the console - or otherwise [...] In the case of the experience-boosting stone you mentioned: perform an action that grants experience towards one of the boosted skills, and measure the amount of experience gained per action, or equivalently the number of actions required to gain one entire level in that skill by performing only that ...

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. If you consider what is going on, the GPU needs to receive prepared frames from the CPU, but if it doesn't it will not be fully utlized. The CPU in turn needs to generate said ...

It used to be possible to directly query your experience progress with this command (you can replace smithing with any of these things): player.getav SmithingSkillAdvance In principle, you could save, do a bunch of smithing, check your skill advancement, load, deactivate the guardian stone, do the same amount of smithing as before, check your advancement ...

The source of the lag is hard to determine. However, typically, a computer's major bottle neck will be the following, in the specified order: 1) Hard Drive (seek times measured in ms) 2) Amount of RAM - if you run out, you start using Hard Drive swap 3) Actual CPU/GPU processing power

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. Even if it's not the optimum resolution, it's possible that you can still play the game in a less-than-optimum setting, ...

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 ...

Assuming you're using default controls: Shift causes it to speed up; Right click causes it to slow down; Left click causes it to spread/track enemies.

Steam games that are installed on the PC show up on that PC on other accounts, but aren't playable. It says basically "Hey these games are already installed! If you buy them, you won't even have to wait for them to install to play them!" They are not in your library and only you (and other Steam users who are physically using your PC, in the event your PC ...

In a word, yes. Can I use multiple Steam accounts on one computer? Yes, you can access different Steam accounts from one computer. However, you may only access one account at a time. The accounts will share the core files for any games the accounts have in common, but each account will maintain its own custom content and configuration ...

I did switch from- and to Hard difficulty and restarted my game. The Ur-Dragon riftstone on the beach of Cassardis still stays, so my guess is that everything that got unlocked by completion of the previous cycle is still unlocked, whatever it might be. EDIT: Iola (the clothes trader in Cassardis) is still selling her "Farewell" equipment. Safe to say ...

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 ...

Short: No. It has to do with PlayStation security as well as making the games and consoles harder to hack, etc. This said, it should NOT matter if you are downloading something on your PC or your console as long as they are on the same network.

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". PC gaming in general usually requires multiple keys to register at the same time - a problem ...

Always go into the monitor settings along with the resolution settings of your operating system. After connecting my PC to my living-room television, I was going back & fourth, before I did a " hand to the head" slap , and said to myself It's a monitor moron , it has an adjustment for wide-screen

Digging up some of the old games that I use-to love playing, I searched was searching for the patches, and I came across this page. Then reading the reply from " Lemmings19 ". I found It isn't exactly right. Not all patches have the prior one installed inside of it. Unless you go into the Patch information itself, and it actually says that it contains the ...
