There's no legitimate method that you can use however there are third party tools available that you can use to re-lock achievements. So you can set the earned achievements for any given game to zero but I'm unsure how long/or if this will effect the showcase in question.

The only reason I can conceive of doing this, is an attempt to preserve your F3 FOMM settings (or to use a mod that's not compatible with NV.esm, without which TTW won't work anyway). You have to import all that into NV's FOMM/GeMM list. Here's the important part of my load order for NV, with TTW, using NVSE to launch it:

the way i found to do it with 100% success is to copy the steam folder to an external disk, then transfer to an already active disk on the new desktop. from there you will open the steam folder and inside you will find an application called "steam.exe" right click and hold, then drag to the desktop and select create shortcut. then just launch from there. the ...

In your steam library, right-click on Dota2 and select Backup and ... It will ask the location to save the backup and take sometime to finish the backup process.

Steam support finally got back to me and disabled the authenticator. I found that leaving a message that doesn't receive an automated reply prompts an actual representitive to read your ticket

You should : Try capping your FPS (fps_max 60) Set rate to 128.000 in your console (rate 128000) Shut down all other processes except steam and Csgo Var depends on the server as well , maybe join a few.

You can use the website http://www.usersearch.org to scan steam and a load of other sites to find that username

When you activate a game on Steam that you already share, then you keep it. It won't be a shared game anymore since it's now in your own library as a game that you bought for yourself, so you no longer need to worry about the game being shared by your friend. However, as Sergii Zaskaleta has pointed out, if there any DLCs that your friend may have on the ...

If the OS is using the paging file while the game is loading (not unusual, as other things are paged out to accommodate the game), that will load the SSD considerably. So you'd get a benefit from either a second SSD or turning the pagefile off - provided you have enough RAM. The latter used to be recommended on SSDs to extend the lifetime.

Short answer: No. Your 240GB SSD is likely faster than your 120GB one. You could stripe/RAID0 them, but that has implications. Long version: You could software-RAID0 (stripe) the 120GB with the 240GB drive, which would get you extra performance, but that'd probably mean you're going to waste 120GB of that 240GB drive, and you wouldn't be able to boot from ...

Here's a different angle than the other answers, or perhaps a slight expansion on something Jonathan Drapeau said in his answer. By having your games on a different hard drive, you allow your OS to use the space more effectively on its own drive. One of the thing modern OS's do is save data from memory to storage(SSD in this case) when it isn't likely to ...

If the two drives are on different datapaths, you will notice a substantial improvement. Most motherboards have all drives on the same datapath though (some high end ones have two separate datapaths). If you are looking for an improvement with only a single datapath, you have to find what the maximum thouroughput and average thouroughput of the path is, and ...


2

Since you're already on SSD, adding another as an extra drive will not improve performance much (if at all). The difference would be negligible unless you had a really bad drive or one that already has bad sectors. Any SSD would be faster than a traditional hard drive. With that said, you should still consider using it as a game drive instead of using your ...

Unless your 120 SSD is really better than your 240 one (if the 120 has a SATA version higher than the 240 for example and your motherboard support it), you won't notice a difference if there's any. It might be a little bit faster under some circumstances. The main advantage of having a different SSD for your games will be that it won't be accessed when your ...

The item server is probably down. This means TF2 is under maintenance. You're best just to wait an hour or two.

Steam autostarts by default on Windows, unchecking the option under settings will remedy the issue. However, autostarting Steam shouldn't pose any significant security threat. It has held up to a very large amount of attempts to exploit it so far and automatic updates combined with their security team makes sure it stays that way.

There isn't enough space, it is correct. The initial installation is 118GB, but after DLC, multiplayer caches, saves, etc. etc. the 2GB left over won't be enough. Clear enough 5GB or so off your HDD before you install the game.

To go before @DrKNa's answer, This looks as though your linux box is not recognizing the drive. Depending on the OS (SteamOS is an offshoot of Ubuntu which is derived from Debian which is what I am most familiar with.), you could run lsusb when the drive is plugged in, if you get a response that has the manufacturer of the drive then the kernel has ...

/media should have a selectable subfolder when the drive is plugged in, /media istelf is a part of the parent filesystem.

Unfortunately not. Although you can add a shortcut to the game on Steam, that still doesn't do much and it's still a non-Steam game. However, chances are that you may have received a redeemable Steam code with your order, or that you may have one accessible somewhere with your purchase.

If you have not yet upgraded to Premium on TF2, then all the items you get are untradeable. Chances are, the mobile thing isn't a bug. If you want to upgrade to Premium, all you need to do is purchase an item on the Mann Co Store.

As I know that, you can go to Settings -> Downloads then click on Steam Library Folders Then you can add folders wherever you want.

If there is a conflict with the save files, Steam will ask you whether you want to keep the cloud saves or local saves. This will occur with every computer that has greatly different save files.

Yes, games are downloaded to your hard drive before you can play them. You can select the location where the games are to be downloaded and stored by specifying a custom game library path. Steam by itself is free to sign-up and use, however most games, to the exception of free-to-play ones, are paid and requires you to buy them. You can pay trough multiple ...

This best way to enable it from steam is to create a .desktop shortcut to run the jar package. This will also allow you to provide name, description and icon to steam, as well as providing the full command line, including attributes.

At current it is downloaded with steam. If you delete the game, and re download it directly from Uplay, then yes. You should be able to play without steam.

There is more than a storefront on on GoG (contra DJ Aftershock's response), but the community is lesser than at Steam. Each game (or game series) has a dedicated forum, some are more active than others. Sometimes for classic games the gog forum is the best one available, though. Plus, gog never tried to rm -rf / any of it's users Linux boxen. ;) For ...

This is kind of subjective, but I'll throw what I know about the two into a makeshift answer: Steam Steam Sales are great, letting you get some new and hot games for a really cheap price Notably large amount of games, although...

Well, they're different platforms run by different companies. Valve has been taking more of a hands-off approach with Steam, their goal seemingly to make it a popular distribution and community platform. GoG on the other hand specifically targets older games (although they've broadened their scope now, GoG stands for "Good old Games") which they modify to ...

Assuming your brother is still living in the same house, you can easily transport them directly over your local area network. I don't know what version of Windows (or other OS) you're using, but it should be pretty doable with a Google search of "(your OS name here) local network file transfer." This utilizes the local connection between the computers in ...

I was having this problem as well even after installing the Visual C++ redistributable. Turns out the problem was that the game does not like being installed on a drive that has NTFS Compression enabled. So if you have it installed on a drive with compression enabled you'll need to move it.

You can do that by going to Settings -> Display and adjust Safezone value to fit your needs.

Because you keep getting kicked from the competitive servers, there is a penalty for quitting a competitive server before the end of a match. It means that you cannot play any more matches for a while and I believe that that time increases after so many times. Stick to Play against bots offline or to normal matches until your internet can keep you ...

Yes you can. I do not see the need for posting this, as the Steam FAQs will give you an answer. However assuming both you and your friend have internet connection, as long as you sign in with the same Steam profile on both computers the game will appear in your library on any computer with that profile signed in on. Then just double click the game to ...

Aside from msconfig, another place to check is your startup folder in your start menu. Any shortcut placed there will start the program when the system boots up.

Steam is supposed to do that, as well as dozens of applications you have installed. It's not "potentially dangerous". That's very common for a lot of applications. When you start your machine several processes run because of the start itself. Some of them connect to available networks to perform updates or log in users into services. That's what steam was ...

As far as WHY Steam is connecting to the internet - that's what it is made to do. It connects for many reasons - once on start-up to log in to your account and authorize all your games, periodically through the day to check for game updates or new games in your library (say if you added a game through the website instead of through the Steam application), ...

There are two options I see: 1) Ensure the "Run Steam when my computer starts" option is turned off in Steam's options dialog. 2) Run msconfig.exe (which I hope is available under Windows 8) to turn off Steam, or any other processes, that run upon startup. MSConfig.exe is a Windows program that will edit your computer's registry to, among other things, ...
