I'd try running traceroute (on Windows it is tracert) to the destination server. Then you will be able to pin down the exact point where the latency increases. The latency to your router should be as low as a couple of milliseconds. If it is higher, then you have problems with your LAN. If you are on Wi-Fi, try improving the signal, or try using an ethernet ...

Hello Fellow South African!! :) So basically the isp we have is really bad, I don't know your location so I can't help there. Basically when you said that pinging google responded with a ms of 225. Google servers redirect to the nearest server(We have a google hq in jozi by the way) So that leaves it at this. Your net. Check your isp, restart your router ...

I removed all of the files except for Steam.exe and the SteamApps folder. Once I started steam again it rebuilt the files and started up normally. Hope this helps someone else.

Sadly, that is how the game is licensed, there is no legal way to bypass it. You can try playing in offline mode and seeing what that does, but it will might still be finicky(depends on the game. Playing AC4 offline meant no fleet stuff).

Ok, it does seem that going through the installscript.vdf and looking for everything under Run Process and putting that in the registry seems to get rid of the prompt. For example, for Assassin's Creed III I have this: "Run Process" { "DXSetup" { "process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\Support\\DirectX\\DXSETUP.exe" "command 1" "/silent" ...

Aside from what has been mentioned above, free-to-play games can be permanently removed from your library by going here and clicking "remove" next to the game's name.

Even if you forced it to stop there is no point to it if you want to play dota 2 since downloading workshop tools will just erase your dota 2 and start to download it again. And once you decide to remove the tools (as I did since i had some lag issues) it will delete and re-download the game again. Dota 2 workshop tools are in Alpha stage so this things ...

I admit it: I've bought keys off the market for over retail-price before (TF2 keys, but the reasoning would be the same for Dota 2) I don't play that game, and don't have it installed - I use keys for game trading. So to buy a key, my options were: Install the game. Wait for the 8GB download to finish, then wait some more while the game installs and ...

This may not be perfect, as some game folders contain multiple executables, but I've just tested the following on my work system (which only has a few games installed) Navigate to your Steam Common Apps folder: (commonly C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common) Use the Search function in the top right corner and search for *.exe Select the games ...

This isn't Steam's business, it's the publisher's. Wine is not seamless: bugs and performance issues can range from minor to gamebreaking, depending on the software.

Since a recent update, you can select multiple games by holding down control and clicking them. Or, if they are adjacent in the list, select the first, hold shift and then select the last. Then right click the selection, which will allow you to install them all at once:

I know it is a 2012 question, and I know what everybody said, but I will add my two cents here, for future reasons. First thing, you must understand that it is wrong to say this method "does not work at all". You have to understand how Steam look for achievements, and as far as I know, this implementation may vary from game to game. Example: I once had a ...

My first thing to try would be to verify the integrity of the Steam Cache. To do this find the game in your Steam library right click and select properties click Local Files click Verify Local Cache see if that helps

Have you tried changing the download restrictions Steam asks you for when changing the download region? You can get there by clicking Steam --> Settings --> Downloads When you change your region, you should be prompted to change your download speed (Modem towards faster speed, Dial-Up towards slower. Could be the issue you're having. I have had this ...

You can trade it to other players, provided they pay you however much you'd like to get for it.

Steam is probably just busy patching the files. Since Steam Pipe was introduced, the patching process is not merely overwriting files anymore. Back then, Steam would just download all files affected, which led to hefty downloads for the users. Nowadays Steam is only downloading the difference between the new file and the old file. But this process also ...

I use a Chrome extension called Enhanced Steam (no affiliation). It basically provides small UI improvements to Steam store, such as highlighting games you already own. I am unsure whether or not it differentiates between different versions of the same game. I tried searching for Civilization V (which I already own) but cannot find the GOTY version you ...

Yes. You can close Steam and/or restart your computer at any time while downloading with Steam. You do not need to manually pause the download before closing Steam or rebooting; the download is paused automatically and resumed next time you start Steam. Unless you delete the game (either mid-download or after downloading) by right clicking the game in your ...

All you need to do is log on from another location. All other steam sessions will be automatically logged off. If you saved your credentials on this other computer, then that is another story. I would de-authorize that other PC and also change my password. Here is the reference for Steam not allowing multiple log-in sessions.

Hover over 'Library' in the Steam interface, and go to Downloads. You can pause and resume content there. When you turn off your computer and close Steam, it's smart enough to pause the download in a place it can immediately resume again, even if you did not pause it.

You can safely close Steam & shut down your computer in the middle of the download. You can continue it next tine you use Steam (or if you want to use Steam but not download, you can do that too - just restart the download whenever you're ready). For reference, you can also continue downloading whilst playing another game - details can be found here: ...

You can disable DLC at the launcher. Simply click the DLC entry on the list on the DLC tab to add or remove the check-mark (Same goes for mods on the mods tab). If you are using the steam version you can also disable DLC that way, Simply right click on the game in steam and go to properties -> DLC (tab). Uncheck the checkbox for the DLC you want to disable. ...

I hope you can find this guide useful. Unfortunately for some games not compatible with Steam overlay this is the only way.

Don't worry, your items are still there, the Steam Inventory API is just down. The Steam inventory API goes down all the time. It happens often during high server-loads, like during Summer/Winter sales or during big tournaments, but it also happens at less frequently at completely arbitrary times.

It seems that other users have had this problem as well, and from what I can glean from other websites your problem should resolve itself with time. Try waiting about a week (or until the next update) and then report back here if the problem is fixed or not.

The Steam - Update news is a general pop-up window that comes up whenever steam has some offers or news for you in general. Like @ahillier88 pointed out, try downloading from your library instead, i am sure it will work. Hope this helps! Happy Gamin'!

Yes you can,in the very bottom of the steam overlay next to the steam logo you should have links for opening web browser,music and settings.
