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, ...

I bought and installed Borderlands 2 for OS X yesterday, and today I saw the same crash log. I found some other threads that suggested upgrading to OS 10.9 Mavericks as a solution, but I'm already on 10.9. I was connected to a TV via a mini Displayport to VGA adapter. I noticed that as soon as I unplugged the external display Borderlands 2 stopped crashing. ...

As of COD4, the series has colorblind options, WoW's latest patch also accounts. Also Borderlands 2's next update will have an option too.

Sounds like you might have your filter set wrong.

No, there's no way to get the Steam key for a game you've redeemed on Steam without using Steam. In fact, I'm not aware of a way to do this if you have Steam running - once the key is redeemed, Steam doesn't typically give you any way to view it. The exception is games that have keys beyond the Steam system. These games you can view the "CD Key" or ...

The usual steps i would take in the same situation is, -find the launch .exe for the game in its directory and make sure you run it as Admin. -select the video settings option and make sure that it is suitable for your PC -Depending on which version of windows you are using, possibly run it in compatability mode for a previous version like windows 7 if ...

Given what you have said in your comments, I think the best course of action would be to ask your dad to log on to the computer under his account, log in to your Steam account, then run the games you are having the issues with crashing on. If he can get on them fine, switch back to your account and try again. My reasoning is that you not having ...

A booster pack is randomly distributed to a random user every time someone crafts a badge. Users of a higher level will be more likely to receive one.

Open TF2 on your benq monitor. Change the resolution to the lowest that there is. Restart Tf2 on your laptop with no external monitors. Done :)

Try the official workaround. Close Steam, delete the "appcache" folder in your Steam install-directory and restart your computer... Worked for me after I was posting here about having the same problem, hope it helps you!

I got the answer on reddit. Reddit I basically have to create an autoexec.cfg file in the same folder and paste my code there instead.

You can trade for them, buy them from the Steam Marketplace, or they drop when you craft a new badge. The emoticon will be from the set that is related to the game/event that the badge is for. To craft a new badge, you need a set of trading cards for a particular game or event. These can be bought at the Steam Marketplace (same as the emoticons), earned ...

I got each of mine by crafting badges. From the Steam wiki: Emoticons are little symbols or pictures given to a user once they have crafted a badge.

Actually you can bind a steam app folder simply from the steam gui! view -> settings -> download -> steam library folder and then choose your shared steam folder.

Steam keys can only be used once. If the original owner used the product key, you cannot use it.

Unsure if this is 100% the correct way, but have you tried disconnecting from the internet and running the setup.exe as detailed in the support article? Also please note, If you have purchased the DLC from steam it may be updates that are occuring to patch your install. When Orange Box came out I had installed using the disk but still required internet ...

Attempt 1 - Uninstalling and reinstalling.

When I went to install my new game, the game location from my manage libraries was finally there. Update 2 - the workaround The problem has returned. ...

There is no way to hide hours played, nor is there a way to reset it. You can however, prevent it from building up. Playing games in offline mode will not count towards your hours. You will not be able to play Steamworks games multiplayer, though (And sometimes not at all).


11

Actually, no. There is no built in-option to hide your hours played. The only way to achieve this is to set your profile on private, but then no one will be able to access the profile. If you don't want anybody to know that you played over 1000 hours Barbie and friends, create an extra steam-account and buy the game there. ;)

I ended up just replaying the last part again and Fallout decided to not be buggy and gave me the achievements.

You can use Steam Achievement Manager to give yourselves the achievements. You can also try looking for a mod that unlocks achievements.

Rokk answered your question about Civilization V, but I will expand on the subject because your question was general about all games. Some games allow you to play in Offline mode over LAN. Some will allow you to play over the internet as well. Other games are more tightly integrated with your Steam account and their multiplayer presence requires Steam ...

It depends on the game. In the case of Civilization V, you will only need one account if you want to play over LAN. You will have to login on both computers using your account. However, you might have to run Steam in offline mode on your wife's computer after logging in. To do this, look for the "Steam" menu at the top left, and click on "Go Offline".
