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.

Third party websites like the one Seiyria made are great, but do not take into account the games you played during free weekends, and probably also miss games you played using Steam Family Sharing. If your Steam level is 10 or above, you can see an exact list of games that contribute to your Avg. Game Completion Rate using the Achievement Showcase. While ...

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 ...

So I contacted Steam Support and asked the same question. Here's their reply: When cloud storage is full, Steam will no longer be able to add new files.

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 ...

Yes, Rocket League has complete support for the DS4, with the correct button-icons and everything. There's no need to install additional drivers or software, unlike many other games.

This is completely possible depending on the game (usually games that do not connect to the internet). After setting up family sharing, the person who owns the game must start the game. After the game is running, go to steam and go into offline mode. Now the second person can use family sharing. I've done this numerous times with Civ V and i believe should ...

I have also experienced this issue occasionally, and it's highly likely that the TF2 Item servers were under heavy load, not responding or even just simply down at the time you attempted to load your backpack. If this bug happens again, you can check the status of the TF2 Item servers on the TF2 Trade Lists site or various other TF2-centric sites that ...

Found many posts on the steam community, apparently the way to update your item is very different (depending on which workshop you are using). For Skyrim, for example, the update is done using the Creation Kit. For Cities : Skylines you must use the Content Manager. So in your case (prison-architect) it appears there aren't such managers, so no possible ...

Caveat: I have never been VAC banned so all information provided below is from different sources across the internet. When a player on the server is VAC banned The notification most likely varies slightly from game to game. In Source games, a message will appear in the chat stating something like Player [PlayerName] has left the game: [VAC Banned ...

Megos answer isn't entirely correct, it depends, so I'll expand a bit. In general, as Mego says, there is no way to do this, but some publishers do provide this option. For example, the Paradox Grand Strategy games offer the option to roll back to any prior version and play that. The only possible mechanic to do this is the beta program. Originally this ...

Almost certainly no. Steam refuses to open a game unless it's the latest version or you're in offline mode, and does not offer any mechanism to download, install, and play older versions of games. The only way this would be possible is if the game developer kept older versions as part of the game content and had some sort of version selection in the game. ...

Two people are actually able to play at the same time, I've done this myself before and as far as I can tell steam has done nothing to block this. If anyone can prove it's not legal/within their terms then please comment below. If you both share a game on steam, then both of you download the game. If one of you goes into offline mode, you can play at the ...

x360ce works well with my china shop special controller. Copy the .exe file into Executable folder and create xinput files, then start the game from the x360ce application ("Game Settings" tab).

As others have said you can't have 2 people access the same steam account in any form or fashion at the same time, regardless of whether its the same game each person wants to play or different games. This is a real thorn in the side for actual families who use it for family sharing. It's basically a broken system that doesn't work for many families. ...

By the looks of it, it's per game, and you can follow the steps here to see how much you've used up and how much you have left. Having a read here it seams that when it's full - its full and nothing gets deleted ... Since your hard can support it (and to be honest save files aren't that large) I'd disable Cloud Save for that game.

Copy the Microsoft.net folder from C:/Windows into the LA Noire game folder and run the .exe but not the launcher. This worked for me.

Just to make sure there's a more current response: I spent about 5 months being able to be logged in on two computers at once. It suddenly stopped allowing that yesterday. I did install a game on the second computer for the first time about a week ago, before that I just streamed to it occasionally, so maybe there's something to the download/online ...

So I basically had the same question and found this answer: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/community_market#announcements/detail/1262446774506273812 The buy order with the highest price gets priority for purchasing newly listed items. If there are multiple orders with the same high price, the oldest buy order gets fulfilled first. So it's supposed to ...

It could be because of more reasons: The Steam overlay "keeps" the controls for itself - this could be considered a bug/glitch (report?). The overlay is the active part - try terminating the program (Ctrl+Alt+Delete --> Task Manager --> Steam program --> end program (on Windows)) If it still doesn't work, I don't know.

I found out that you can solve this problem by simply reinstalling steam.

To an extent, yes and no. As the Steam Family Sharing FAQ says, "Can I share specific games, or do I have to share my whole library? Libraries are shared and borrowed in their entirety." That's the "no" part. However technically there is a way to enable only selected games for accounts you're sharing with. You can do this by using Family Options. ...

I found a tool that requires a little more work than the web-based ones above, but has an amazing amount of functionality. Depressurizer will parse your Steam library and load it into the application for query and edit. You can sort / filter games by categories, tags, all sorts of stuff. You can automatically apply bulk label operations based on certain ...

You can exclude games you do not want your son to play. You can restrict access to the store. But it seems there is no way to restrict the gaming time. There is for sure external softwares that answer your needs. As I did not install and test any of them, I cannot say if they are safe or not. GameNanny seems to be one of them. Use it at your own risk and do ...

I had the same problem with Skyrim. You can't fully avoid it, but you can go to your Task Manager -> Options -> Always on Top. It will now always be above the Crashed game so you can close it. You can then safely restart it.

The easiest solution I've seen to this is maintaining network share of steam game backups. Only once device needs to download the whole of each game via the Internet. Each person/computer then has their own credentials, but installs happen using the "restore from backup" option at LAN speeds, instead of having 20 users all trying to download the same game at ...

On Steam, there are no multi-seat licensing. Although Valve does do this for cybercafes and education institutions, it is essentially the creation of multiple accounts (one account per computer) with licenses applied manually by Valve that are simply logged in automatically when the computer starts, which is the same as multiple single-user accounts. To ...
