Megos answer isn't entirely correct, it depends, so I'll expand a bit. In general, as Mego says, there is no way to do this, but some publishers do provide this option. For example, the Paradox Grand Strategy games offer the option to roll back to any prior version and play that. The only possible mechanic to do this is the beta program. Originally this ...

On Steam, there are no multi-seat licensing. Although Valve does do this for cybercafes and education institutions, it is essentially the creation of multiple accounts (one account per computer) with licenses applied manually by Valve that are simply logged in automatically when the computer starts, which is the same as multiple single-user accounts. To ...

Caveat: I have never been VAC banned so all information provided below is from different sources across the internet. When a player on the server is VAC banned The notification most likely varies slightly from game to game. In Source games, a message will appear in the chat stating something like Player [PlayerName] has left the game: [VAC Banned ...

Almost certainly no. Steam refuses to open a game unless it's the latest version or you're in offline mode, and does not offer any mechanism to download, install, and play older versions of games. The only way this would be possible is if the game developer kept older versions as part of the game content and had some sort of version selection in the game. ...

I had the same problem with Skyrim. You can't fully avoid it, but you can go to your Task Manager -> Options -> Always on Top. It will now always be above the Crashed game so you can close it. You can then safely restart it.

This option will allow your GPU (graphics processing unit) to process certain video data, instead of your CPU doing it. This is a good thing if your GPU will do a better job than your CPU - it will take load off the CPU and hopefully make the application run smoother. However if your GPU is old and/or not very good, it may not be wise to enable this ...

The easiest solution I've seen to this is maintaining network share of steam game backups. Only once device needs to download the whole of each game via the Internet. Each person/computer then has their own credentials, but installs happen using the "restore from backup" option at LAN speeds, instead of having 20 users all trying to download the same game at ...

By the looks of it, it's per game, and you can follow the steps here to see how much you've used up and how much you have left. Having a read here it seams that when it's full - its full and nothing gets deleted ... Since your hard can support it (and to be honest save files aren't that large) I'd disable Cloud Save for that game.

Well As posted in my comment. If you used the Ring of Whispers darksouls2.wikidot.com/ring-of-whispers to talk to Manscorpion Tark and didn't take it of, one of the effects is whenever is an enemy near you will hear the sounds you describe

To an extent, yes and no. As the Steam Family Sharing FAQ says, "Can I share specific games, or do I have to share my whole library? Libraries are shared and borrowed in their entirety." That's the "no" part. However technically there is a way to enable only selected games for accounts you're sharing with. You can do this by using Family Options. ...

So I basically had the same question and found this answer: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/community_market#announcements/detail/1262446774506273812 The buy order with the highest price gets priority for purchasing newly listed items. If there are multiple orders with the same high price, the oldest buy order gets fulfilled first. So it's supposed to ...

So I contacted Steam Support and asked the same question. Here's their reply: When cloud storage is full, Steam will no longer be able to add new files.

Found many posts on the steam community, apparently the way to update your item is very different (depending on which workshop you are using). For Skyrim, for example, the update is done using the Creation Kit. For Cities : Skylines you must use the Content Manager. So in your case (prison-architect) it appears there aren't such managers, so no possible ...

Two people are actually able to play at the same time, I've done this myself before and as far as I can tell steam has done nothing to block this. If anyone can prove it's not legal/within their terms then please comment below. If you both share a game on steam, then both of you download the game. If one of you goes into offline mode, you can play at the ...

I found out that you can solve this problem by simply reinstalling steam.

I found out how: In Steam, go to Steam menu -> Settings, then in the In-Home Streaming settings, press the "Advanced Host Options" button, and a window will appear. You can then select the number of threads used for software encoding. This option wasn't there around the time I posted the question.. it seems like it was added recently.
