Essentially, yes. According to this Humble Mumble blog post, they have stated that they'll be removing OAuth support for Steam, which is the main method of redeeming keys through a third-party/link. And that all purchases made before the 12th of January 2015 can still use this method up to around the start of Febuary. Anything bought after the 12th or is ...

Save file formats entirely depend on the game, and many games will use any combination of binary or plain text formats. While Steam hosts many games, it does not define how a game should manage its own data. Games published through Steam will therefore widely vary, and it's no different than if you got each from their publishers. The Steam Cloud simply ...

If steam cloud is enabled for Payday 2, all of your save data should be restored when you reinstall Payday 2. Payday 2 does support the Steam Cloud for backing up save data (in addition to it's own anti-save-corruption measure of having a local backup). If you use the steam cloud, all settings applicable to the stock game (without mods such as Hoxhud, ...

This is going from memory from the last time I pre-loaded a game (Portal 2 in 2011). As you guessed, the game files Steam downloads are encrypted. When the release date rolls around, Steam downloads a game update which (presumably) contains the decryption key, then it start decrypting the game. If you've seen what Steam says when it starts to launch a ...

Steam does not auto-download preordered games. It doesn't auto download any games. It only downloads what you manually select for install, and since you can't install preordered games yet, you are out of luck. Except if it does offer preloading as mentioned by Orc JMR in the comments.

You'll need 130 GB of space, maybe a bit more, to copy the files in the manner you describe. Steam first checks to see if you have enough free space to install the game, then it checks to see what files are have already been copied to machine. So you'll need 65 GB of space to store the copied files and additional 65GB of free space just so Steam won't refuse ...

There may be a limit on how far it goes, but my Steam transaction history goes back to December 2009. To view your own transaction history from the Steam client, click on your account balance in the upper right of the client to bring up the account page. Then select "STORE TRANSACTIONS" and then "SEE ALL" at the bottom recent transaction list.

The mission is bugged and will not properly display how many snipers you've killed. I've done this mission before and you just have to keep a mental check of how many snipers you've killed. Once you've killed 10, you'll get the achievement and the relevant weapon mods.

Just click at Steam > Change User... at the very top of your Steam Window. Steam will logout and open the login window again. then you can log in with your new account :) Also: It doesn't matter which account you use to install a game. When you install them with one account and then switch to another it will use the same game files and you dont need to ...

From the Official TF2 wiki: This hat is given to players who purchased Team Fortress 2 before the Über Update on June 23, 2011, those who receive a gift of the game, and those who activate a retail copy of the game, such as purchasing the Orange Box. If you look in the Notes section, it'll say: Purchasing the Orange Box or Valve Complete Pack ...

The answer to this is in the Steam Region Restrictions FAQ However, said answer is anything but clear. Basically, for CD Keys (which these would count as), it says Region restrictions on CD Keys vary by each individual publisher. There is no standard or universal restriction placed on retail games. Having said that, I haven't had any problems ...

According to Steam support (in a ticket I've sent), when you go overseas, your Steam Store billing region is automatically assigned based on the IP address you logged in using. So naturally (for example), buying a game in Malaysia (despite having all your games bought from the proper full-paying store in Australia/USA) will impose the region restrictions ...

Honestly, your specs are not too good. The issue with the loading screen is probably due to the slowness of your hard disk, it might have problems if the HDD is almost full. The specs are kinda low, the problem with Indie games is that they are usually less optimized then triple A games. Also, remember that Skyrim came out in 2011! ( God I'm old ) It ...

Didn't really find a solution it. You're not the only one though. See this steam community thread I also found a reddit thread where someone stated that he managed to download both version and run them. Other suggested to try to download two instances of steam with both language and then run both games from there. I'd suggest you try to install two steam ...

I searched a bit and it seems to be because of your graphic driver. Try starting the game with Steam overlay deactivated. If the deactivation doesn't help please go to your graphics card Catalzst Control Center and set Anti-Aliasing settings to Filter:Box. This fixed the Problem for some people. Make sure you have the latest version of your graphics ...

I'd expect so, but the best way to check would be to try it. cp ./.steam/game_data/ ./2tb/blah mv ./.steam/game_data/ ./.steam/old_game_data ln -s ./2tb/blah/ ./.steam/game_data And fire up steam, see what it thinks. If it fails, remove the symlink and move the game_data back.

With this update the majority of core Workshop features are implemented! If you head on over you'll soon find tons of new content to play with. To view it you will need to join the Unturned Workshop beta group here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/304930_Workshop Source

Some people have the same problem, but here is the solution. First, if you have more than 1 GPU, it's normal : Thief does not support (as of March 2014) multi-GPU. Maybe there was an update since then. Of course, you have to check if you're using the latest drivers, and also if you uninstalled the previous one, to be sure they're not conflicting. A user ...

This is obvious 4+ years old now but here's the answer, which I found after fiddling around intercepting windows messages. Rename: <steam path>\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\paul.dll to: <steam path>\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\paul.disable.dll Annoying Rockstar Social Club dialog will now be suppressed. Also, ...
