I know this question is old and maybe already solved, but just for others out there reading this: I had also the problem that I could only see the menu background and nothing else. No reaction of pressing keys or clicking with mouse. Just exit Steam and restart it again. The open up your game. Should be fixed now. :)

I would like to add to Henry2626's answer (the current top answer) and say that with some (not all) Steam games - including Civilization V and Telltale's The Walking Dead for me - forcing the game to run with the discrete Nvidia card fails. I've found in these cases that quitting and restarting Steam as administrator is the only way to get the discrete card ...

Try disabling/enabling Steam Beta participation and if that fails, try deleting appcache and even your Steam folder if you have to.

It depends. If the game supports Steam Play with Linux, you should be able to install the game without rebuying it. Otherwise, you'll most likely need to rebuy it or run it on a virtual Linux machine.

I assume "cross-platform" refers to . According to Steam support, you can just install it on windows. What is Steam Play? Steam Play allows you to purchase your games once and play anywhere. Whether you have puchased your Steam Play enabled game on a Mac or PC (both Windows and Linux), you will be able to play on the other platform free of charge. ...

Yeah, just click install and this will happen:

Most Games and Mods rely very heavily on knowing what platform they are targeting. This makes it very difficult to port complex modifications between platform versions of the game even if they seem to be similar on the outside. Simply re-targeting the XML will not aid in handling numerous internal function calls that will not be recognized outside the ...

I am pretty much sure that for this download you can only get it on windows, so you cannot get it on mac unless you find one online. This is because the game was made compatible for windows, not mac so you would have to find some program to "translate" the game. Good luck!

I've been trading for quote a long time, and I tell you this, The steam trading world is FULL of scammers. So always be skeptical of anything that doesn't seem right or common to you. Never do trades involving paypal for items as payment. Never accept game codes, or steam wallet codes as payment Checking a person's profile for clues if they are trustworthy ...

No, not through the steam market anyway. With the market you have to sell them all individually. You might be able to trade them in bulk for a couple of items (like CS:GO skins) that you can then put on the market quicker.

A lot of traders have people post rep+ in their profile, sort of an adhoc eBay feedback system. That can at least be some indication as to whether they are a good trader, sometimes I've also went off how many games they actually own. Whilst this last bit is not a guarantee that it'll be a safe trade, I like to use it as reported scammers get their accounts ...

There are always risks when trading. One common problems I have been seeing recently is when the game gift is bought fraudulently and then traded. When Steam detect the fraud they revoke the game gift and remove it from your library/inventory, regardless of whose inventory it is in or if they had installed it.

The question of "why" has been already answered, but for the "And how can I make it stop doing that" part while it's not possible in the client itself, Enhanced Steam browser plugin offers an option to skip the age gates if you want to (among other features). It's available for Chrome, Opera and Firefox browsers and there's a separate stand-alone client too. ...

It's definitely by design. From this topic: Tito Shivan (Steam moderator): As mentioned, the client does save the age. And whether it's saved or not, they won't disable the step of having to click and accept before entering the game page. It's a feature to remove any responsibility from Valve in case anyone not meant to visits the page (hence lying ...

The age verification date is stored locally only. You can see this for yourself if you login to Steam with your browser in Incognito mode, or after having cleared your cookies. It is never stored on Steam's servers at all, likely due to potential privacy concerns (or they just didn't feel like storing all that data). There's no real way to bypass the ...

You can use WineBottler to run Windows applications on a Mac. Scroll to 04 in WineBottler and click "Install Steam" Login play.

Steam now does this, check on settings. Big Picture, Settings, Display, Target Monitor. There you have it.

Try to block the person you are trying to add then unblock them and then add them again. Also, have you been able to add other people? Their friendslist may also be full!

Have you put in money in your steam wallet and actually bought something? Or are you just using steam to play games like Dota 2, TF2.. To add friends you need to have steam "premuim" which requires you to buy a game. Or you can try this method: Block the person, unblock the person and then re-add the person.

I guess it would be under the Steam Music Player. That's where the FTL soundtrack was for me.

You have to go to Finder > Macintosh HD (or whatever hard drive you have) > Users > your username > applications and it should be there. For some reason this application folder is different then the standard and thats where mine was put. This worked for me

The soundtrack has now appeared in SteamApps\common\The Binding of Isaac Rebirth\The Binding of Isaac Rebirth OST.

"Steam updating should not cause permissions to need to be re-enabled. Also, I have noticed this occurs more often than Steam updates. It is more likely an issue with Yosemite that has not been patched in Steam yet. " (All credit should go to tubedogg.)

Yes, you can copy steam game files from one computer to anther to avoid having to download them again. Simply copy the game files from the 'common' folder of the steam library where they are installed. By default this will be something similar to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GAME NAME On the second machine copy these files to it's ...

This is a bit of a trick question. The answer is simply: No. Steam says: What restrictions are there on trading Steam Gifts? Trading a Steam Gift is very similar to sending a gift to someone; just that once it is traded that user can then either trade it again, or open it for themselves. There are no restrictions on territory. A bundle of games ...

It depends a lot on the game. Some games you won't have to do anything, they use the same save file format and use the same directory to store them in. Other games will use the same file format but you'll need to copy them to a different place. Unfortunately some games will use a different save game format and simply aren't compatible the Steam version. If ...

Click Steam > Settings then the Interface tab and uncheck Start Steam in Big Picture Mode.

Have you checked if the option to always start in Big Picture Mode is set? It's on the Interface tab.

I have solved my problem, with a relatively simple solution. I basically backed up my game by clicking Steam and then clicking the Backup option (Backup and Restore, or something along those lines). Then I moved that backup to my PC and converted that backup back into the game (The backed-up game will be in a weird format; you can choose between CD and DVD ...

It happens after a steam update, I believe. You may be enrolled in Steam beta updates, which would lead to permissions being reenabled everytime Steam or a Steam game starts.

Just make a desktop shortcut for the steam game then copy the link finally add the link to this code. start "" "(Your Link)" It works for me.

I got the same problem, and I kind of figured out a way to fix it. I have my wifi split into 2, 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz, and this problem only appears on 5 Ghz for some reason. When I switched back to 2.4 Ghz, it worked fine. Very annoying still tho.

From the Known Issues thread posted by the developers: The Soundtrack DLC is not working People who bought the Soundtrack DLC cannot access the music files right now. Expect this to be fixed soon, sorry about the inconvenience.

After a little more searching, the Binging of Isaac Rebirth Soundtrack can also be found on Ridiculon's Band Camp page.

I know from using Steam that you can "add a library location" in your downloads tab. After that, when you download some game, you'll be presented with the option for where to install it. If you wish to move your already installed games, this Steam help document should help you do that. You'll have to make sure that your are technically the "owner" of the ...

IIRC Steam verifies C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps for files that already exists for the game before downloading anything. So, if you try to install Civ V, it will detect the game files and automatically un"gray"out the game for you without downloading additional files. Additionaly, you can try Steam instructions for transfering games between computers: ...

Move the appmanifest_8930.acf from the SteamApps folder into the other SteamApps folder. Then restart Steam.

Yes, you can. But only for Metacritic scores. You can only sort through user reviews in the store. As @Ross Ridge said: As mentioned by the original poster, you can sort your games by Metacritic metascore by using the Steam client. Switch the Library to the List View and click on the the metascore column header. – Ross Ridge Can I search my Steam ...

The nav file is likely embedded into the map file using BSPZip or PakRat. This isn't common for Valve's other games, as nav files can be edited in game and embedding it in the map prevents that. However, workshop restrictions may mean we'll see more of this kind of embedding for CS:GO.


-1

No. You will not get the *.nav file for a map that is not an official map.
