if you go into origin and right click on your game that shows in my games it should give the option to turn of origin overlay for that particular game while playing. I have gotten a lot of screenshots now by adding mass effect 3 to steam.

It is not possible to log in on two computer at the same time. This means if you log in from a other pc, you will be logged out at the other one. So... if you logged in your steam client and haven't deauthorized in a browser or anywhere other, you should be logged out!

You can change your password which will log you out on your friend's computer. If you saved your password on his computer, you will need to keep your new password. If it wasn't saved, you can assume your friend can't log back in if you set your password back to its previous state. Warning: changing your password may deactivate trading and Market for some ...

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. There is nothing any of us can do but wait. Two sites you ...

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. Clicking on Music link opens up the mini-player from where you can select and play songs from your queue.

You might be able trick Steam into uploading a clean copy of the file if you edit/clear it rather than just deleting it. However, you could as well use the more or less official way: Open the server browser. Click the first entry in the list. Scroll all the way down and shift-click the last entry. This should highlight all entries. Right click any entry ...

I strongly advise to stay the hell away from Steam's backup feature. It usually does more harm than good. I suggest manually copying the game folders (and saves, should they be stored somewhere else) of the games you want to quickly restore to your backup location and then to the SSD. When you do that, delete the .exe file that starts the game, otherwise ...

Go to your Skyrim installation folder. The folder is usually under "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\data" depending on your system. In the folder, there should be two executable files named "SkyrimLauncher" and "TESV". Rename "SkyrimLauncher" to "Launcher". Rename "TESV" to ...

You can copy/rename the files so that the real game executable is named SkyrimLauncher.exe Works for me.

As far as I know, neither Skyrim nor steam have any direct options to do this. As a workaround, you could use the Skyrim Script Extender to launch the game. You can add the SKSE to your steam library as a non steam game, then change the tile to the one from Skyrim and hide the original Skyrim in a Category.

Did you forward just this one port or all ports listed here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711 The connect string you supply will, indeed, cause the server 188.141.19.52 to be polled by UDP on port 27016 by Steam. This makes sense why the client can then determine what game to launch (how it knows that you want Insurgency ...

There is no restriction after those 15 days - I have known people with no games in their accounts that just trade and people who only have F2P games and sell on the marketplace. You will be able to sell on the marketplace as soon as your 15 days are up as long as you have steamguard.

When you add your second account to friend list, you can go to its profile... and send offers. Then accept em from main account. You don't need both accounts working at same time.

Did you try clicking that FAQ link at the end there? Your question is perfectly answered there... Who is eligible to participate in the Community Market? The account must have a successful purchase older than thirty days, but not older than a year. Also, Steam Guard must be enabled for 15 days. If you have had your password reset by Steam ...

The PS3 save files are stored in a proprietary format which is not designed to be handled or integrated by any other software than Sony's own software. This makes all of the PS3 save files unusable by any other system. Any software can potentially be reverse engineered to fit another system than what was originally intended, but this would also mean ...

Yes you can buy games or items, without previous games installed. For games you buy them as gifts and choose add to inventory as your option, For steam community items like dota2, tf2 and csgo items they will always be saved to your inventory so you don't need the game in your library Sidenote(if you buy tf2/dota crates you will need the game to open ...

Steam does not provide such functionality. You need to use a 3rd party tool. One of such websites is AStats. Once you've found your profile, you'll be able to navigate to the page with games completed 100% like in this screenshot.

This is windows reacting to a "telephone call" because someone has a microphone plugged in. You can disable this "feature" like this: Open Start -> Control Panel -> Sound Switch to the Communications Panel Select "Do nothing" This will disable this feature for every application including Steam.

For Arena, it can support up to four players. You are able to play over the internet with any combination of local players and internet players, as long as the total number of players in the single game/match is no higher than four; two per team. So that means, you can play with a co-op players on your side and two individuals on the internet, or two co-ops ...

I'd advise you to stay away from third-party software, and instead use the backup feature Steam has. Less hassle, great compression, and easy to reinstall. Make sure that when you backup multiple games at once, you group the ones that go to your HDD and the ones that go to your SSD together. You can selectively restore single games in backups, but you can't ...

Razer Game Booster will back up your saved games to a cloud storage service (I linked my dropbox account). Check here for the list of supported games: http://www.razerzone.com/gamebooster#supportedgames If you don't want to download all of the games again, you will still need to follow the steps that NoneOfYourBusiness referred to.

This is the software that i use. It will allow you to make a new folder for steam that can be linked to your standard folder. This is the method that i would personally use and have used in the past. Although it can be done by copying files but i have found that some games just don't like that and end up not working.

It's a bug. I contacted Firaxis support and it looks like this is a bug in either my install or computer setup. The exact cause is still being tracked down, but in a save file I sent to them they were able to fly using the Archangel armor with no problems. When I followed their instructions I got nothing, however. I'm going to try installing my Steam ...

203160 is Tomb Raider, 380 is Half-Life 2: Episode One. That's why the files don't match up. But back to your original question, HL2/EP1/EP2 sync files directly from their folders, and not through the "remote" folder. If you look under 380, you'll only see a "cfg" folder, but if you look under "remotecache.vdf" (it's a JSON-like file), you can see exactly ...

You do not need to create a script for that. A new feature has been released in the Steam Market where you can input the amount you are willing to pay for a certain item and the system will take care of finding a match for you and will automatically buy it for you if you have enough money in your Steam wallet. You can get a full description of it here.

If you uninstall all the Source engine games and then reinstall Half-Life 2, you'll get the option to choose a library on another drive. Installing Source engine games after that will use the same library as Half-Life 2.

What you need to do is it will do that it happens to me when I install games you just have to restart your steam. Thats what I do and it works after I log in.

This seems not possible for the moment. Maybe in a future update but you're not alone wishing to have this feature. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/bigpicture/discussions/1/558747218087145752/ http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/10/846938351041439806/

Steam has probably made a library folder on the drive that you installed the Steam client on. If you don't have any games on that drive and don't intend to ever install any on it, go to Steam>Settings>Downloads>Steam Library Folders, select the library folder of the drive you don't want to install any games whatsoever to, and click "Remove". Furthermore, ...
