You can try redeeming your keys (official instructions here) first. If you can redeem them there, you will not need to repurchase everything on Steam. However, if you cannot redeem the keys on Steam, you almost certainly would need to repurchase all of the DLC on steam as well.

Not anymore. Steam sales used to run shorter, better deals for each day of the sale, called "Daily Deals", as well as 8-hour long "Flash Sales", but they discontinued that after introducing refunds. If you want to be 100% sure that it's not going to disappear, look at the end date of the sale on the game's page.

You'll keep your Payday 2. The way steam works is a bit complicated. You don't buy games, you buy subs. You refunded the sub with only Payday 2 in it, but you still have the GOTY sub, and that has the base game in it too, so you should be ok.

The steam game is not just a port of the armor games version. The developers had to make architectural changes and the save file structure is completely different. Therefore you're unable to import your save file. The developers have also stated they're not adding a save import function.

DLC's have their own store page. If I look at the base game store page for Civ V for example, it shows me this in the right-hand-side: If I then click on the title of a DLC in the DLC list, (e.g. Brave New World) the right-hand-side shows me which people on my friends list actually own that DLC. If your friend is already in that list, they have that ...

If you do over sell over $20,000 worth of products, you are legally required to pay taxes for it. This isn't a requirement by Steam, but one by Internal Revenue Service under Internal Revenue Code section 6050W. If you pass 200 transactions in sales in a Calender Year, you'll be asked to fill a 1099 tax form, again required by IRS. Once you pass $20,000, ...

So, to be clear, crossing either threshold is not what makes your income via the steam community market taxable. That is something that will vary wildly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and across a variety of financial circumstances. You should know, however, that in many cases, income from the Steam community market is taxable well before you have ...

Another option could be to try a mod Deus Ex Revision. I played both versions, original and Revision, and certainly it's worth a try. Story stays the same but Revision introduces a lot of cosmetic changes which make user experience much, much better. https://www.dx-revision.com/ (also available on Steam)

It's a widely known current issue, and Valve has been attempting to fix it. (Alas, to no avail so far.) There's a notice by Valve themselves on Reddit here, which includes some pointers on helping them pinpoint the issue.

Use this website to help you determine if the servers are under heavy load. More likely though, your game is looking for any MM game it can find.

What the command does is ...

The best thing to do is go to your main inventory screen and preview them here. at the bottom will be a list of tags. if the tag "not tradable" is there, you will be unable to trade this item. If this tag is on a CSGO weapon, then it means you have only obtained it recently and the 7 day trade block on this item is still active

'Fraid not. My net isnt fast either but i put my pc in low power mode, set downloads off and turn off my monitor. I leave it to run for x hours, or overnight, and check up on it later. To improve power consumption further, ensure no unneeded programs are running as they can cause the system to use more power (you know, cpu usage goes up, which requires ...

You can disable the "time played" clock while playing in offline mode. The only real reason to do this is to play an entire game then get your money back You buy a new single player title. Play for about an hour. Go offline and disable the tracking. You spend the next two weeks playing and finishing the title and then get a refund before the 14 days is up. ...

Depending on the region you live in it might come with one or more free games. In the region I live in, the Steam controller and Steam link are not available for buying through steam, but that doesn't stop Steam from suggesting me to buy them every day. I'm guessing, and I cannot confirm this, that if you buy yours through Steam, they'll register that ...

After much research, it turns out that Steam adds its own libraries to the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, which is causing issues with the curl command finding the proper libcurl. To fix this, record what your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is when not running through Steam, and change it for the commands in the script with something like: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="" <...

Steam itself can limit the download rate during certain hours. Open Steam, then Settings, and in the Downloads tab you'll see a "Download Restrictions" option. While it's not possible to completely stop downloads, you can limit the rate to 16 KB/s, which might or might not be exactly what you need, but it's worth mentioning.

Changing download location may work. But if you really want to make sure you can find someone in the country that has the version you want to gift you the game. Or you could just create a new account and choose the country you want during setup and then just gift the game to yourself.

Normally mods are playable, even if the installer is for Windows. If that's the case you can use wine to install it. For that you'll need to install wine and use the exe with it, or you install the mod under Windows. sudo apt-get install wine wine [drag and drop the installer exe here] It's probably just a simple unzipper, so you should be able to target ...

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 ...
