This a problem that other people have faced. I have recently had the same issue on my dads steam account. That only happens if you change your payment method and it only applies to the Market, not the Store.

No need for launch options if you want all your games to be in English. Mine was on Dutch. You should look for the UI elements I mention in your local language. Right click the steam icon in the notification bar, click Settings. Go to Interface. That's the tab just above Downloads. The top option is "Select the language you wish Steam to use (requires ...

I know this is an old question, but... Steam re-validates games that you own approximately once a month. This is one of the steps Steam uses for fraud prevention, as Valve will pull games from accounts purchased using fraudulent sources. You may say "Wouldn't Valve just ban the account?" They likely ban the purchasing account. However, Steam users can ...

This is not possible. Once a game is in your library, it is permanently added to your library and cannot be gifted, traded or otherwise transferred to someone else. If your friend bought a game without checking the system requirements, they might be able to get a refund by asking Steam Support. Technically, Valve's policy is not to give refunds in this case ...

No, this is not possible. You cannot change items in your library into inventory items.

I had the same problem. Unfortunately, this seems to be by design. I don't have a solution, but I do have a workaround: temporarily disable the sharing of user A's library with you, and you will be able to play user B's copy of the game. This is rather inconvenient though, especially if this happens frequently (or if you have several shared libraries with ...

It seems that one of the files ddfix.ini doesn't match cam.cfg An easy was is to simply verify game cache Open Steam and Log In Right Click Thief 2: The Metal Age Click Properties Click Local Files Click Verify Game Cache

If you log in from your main PC, Steam has to ask you again to choose between your local and cloud saves, because it will detect different data. Anyway you can always backup your savefile, if you are afraid of losing them. Just check Local Files form "Binding of Isaac: Rebirth" properties in your Steam library.

You can individually go through and look at the stats and comprise a list. Also, I think there is a website called canirunit.com in which you can type in the name of the game and you can get recommended specifications there.

It turns out the total groups list does not include official game groups, but the groups in common does. The difference in this case was the official Payday 2 group, which was excluded from the total groups count.

What fixed the issue for me was to make sure Internet Explorer could connect online. Apparently Steam uses the same Internet settings as IE, so if IE can't connect, nether can Steam. In my experience, if IE can't connect but other programs can, the solution is usually to go in IE to Settings --> Connections --> LAN Settings --> check "Automatically detect ...

You can use Steam launch options, which can be used to change game settings and enable features. For example one of these launch options is: -silent : Launches Steam to the system tray only. Normal Steam windows will only appear after clicking the system tray icon. If a password is not stored, the normal login window will still be displayed. More info ...

If you have (ignoring everything @KimMinseo said) placed the items on the Community Market, the credit may not be coming to your account because of: The buyer does not have enough money to buy it. (If it is a buy order) Nobody has bought the item you have listed yet. (All you can do is wait.) Your price is too high. (Meaning nobody will buy it and... ...

If you had not offered to sell any items on Steam Community Market, it is likely that you were scammed. There are various ways to avoid getting scammed. 1. If someone offered you to trade via sending you a link in private chat, check that it is a trusted site. A lot of scammers try to trick people by using fake links such as staemcommunity.com instead of ...

I just did this. I have Assassin's Creed 3 on Uplay from a free download code when I got a gfx card a few years ago. I just bought AC3 on steam during the winter sale and now my Uplay account shows two instances of AC3, one of them is the uplay version that tries to download it from the Uplay servers and the other one is a link that starts the steam version. ...

Instead of using shut down in the app, go to the settings and use "Sign Out". The app should then forget your credentials and, as a result, be unable to log you in automatically.

You can try disabling the push notifications for Wishlist items going on sale and for Steam sales from the Settings > Steam Preferences menu This should stop the app from waking itself to display the push notifications.

No, it is not VAC secured. For proof look at the store page. Games that are VAC secured have 'Valve anti-cheat enabled' listed on the right hand side. Need more proof? Browse the complete list of games that have VAC enable. http://store.steampowered.com/search/?category2=8. Dark Souls is not there.

Short answer: Yes, you can. If you have bought a game on steam that is not available for purchase anymore, you will be able to download and play the game anyway. The game is still available on steam, just not for purchase. Someone could even gift you a game that's not available for sale anymore, assuming they had it in their inventory before it got pulled ...

Steam doesn't "lock you out" - the error messages you're getting sound like you're entering the wrong username or password, since you're not even getting as far as the Steam Guard request. If you don't know your username or password you will need your email address in order to reset it using the options in the Steam client or Steam website. The email ...

It doesn't look like it. I just tried installing Bioshock Infinite from my phone, and it didn't give me an option of which library (I have 2) to install to. It looks like it will install to the default (i.e. the first) library. If that isn't the library you want to install it to, then you can always move the game after it finishes installing. It doesn't ...

Yes you can but there is a set number of trading cards per game, unless you get a booster pack which increases the amount of card drops. And for some free games such as tf2 you have to spend money in game to get trading cards for it.

To my knowledge, the gift cards are like your normal gift card but the wallet codes you purchase and they just put the code on your receipt (at least at GameStop). They should both do the same thing. Don't buy the codes from any untrusted source as Steam scams are quite common nowadays, just get the legitimate gift card and play it safe in my opinion.

I found it. You can still access the auction screen if you search for it. There are just no links on the main site to it which was the source of my confusion. http://steamcommunity.com/auction Any outstanding bids have been canceled and Gems are being returned to your inventory. All Gems will be returned by the end of the day. I don't know when ...

If you have all your games in a new library on different HDD than it will work. After you install steam just add a new library and select the one on your another HDD. Steam will check the files and update them if necessary. However I didn't have any luck transferring games stored in my steam folder in program files. Moving or deleting ClientRegistry.blob ...

Yes. I did it before: simply moved my "Steam disk" from machine A to machine B, then installed Steam on machine B, pointing it to the Steam disk location and voilĂ . As an extra precaution, you can also delete the ClientRegistry.blob file to force Steam to scan the steamapps folder and find out what is installed, making sure all the games get found. Some ...

Here is a Steam forum discussion about error 130 including how to troubleshoot it. It's also possible you got nailed by a recent botched Windows patch which has been causing many problems. Make sure you have all Windows updates installed. Steam has a number of troubleshooting articles you should follow. Using a Firewall with Steam. Troubleshooting ...

There is no longer any need for Javascript hacks. When you click on "unpack" or "pack" gems, Steam gives you a slider-bar to allow you to do as many as you want at once.

I don't know exactly if this applies the same way because I have it on the retail version. The simple solution is remove any CD's while playing, but you could go into the options or configuration menu and click audio. Many options will appear, including one that says 'play CD music'. Uncheck it. I dont know if it'll be the same on steam, but that's how it ...

I'm not entirely sure, but part of the equation is not hard to figure out. Every game is assigned a value in gems that game is "worth". How exactly that value is determined is the unclear part, but I'm pretty the rest works like this. To determine the gem value of a game's backgrounds and emoticons take the determined value of the game and divide it by 2. To ...

The email Steam sent you informing you that you won the auction says the price you bid.

I have had this myself before. It only cleared after completely re-installing steam. Harsh reality but atleast it keeps games stored. Perhaps do this?

DSCfix is no longer needed thanks to the new steam servers! Durante did release DSfix 2.3 which is all you will need now.

I used Piotr Kowalski solution, which worked. However, it reset as Barthez (and galacticninja) said it would. Rather than using the batch file to change the registry, I simply changed the loginusers.vdf to a read only file (Right click on the file, choose properties, check the Read-only check box.) It works fine, but you will have to remember to uncheck ...

Assuming your computer does have Internet access, but your monthly data limit is such that you don't want to use it to download updates to your computer then there might be a possible workaround to your problem. If there's another computer that you have access to that you can install Steam and where it's Internet access isn't as limited, say a friend or ...

Many retail games don't include all the necessary game data on the disk. In the case of Borderlands 2, it seems that it did not include the full game on disk, so an update is required to download the rest of it. Since a newer version exists since the disk was released, those remaining files turn out to be a majority of the game's file size. Since it's not ...

Are you adding the Friends by account name? If so i also have had trouble and usually the email address works better. If that doesn't work then add them by friend ID.

Internet [ ]? Without internet you will be unable to download ANY mandatory update. You could try going to public places like libraries or coffee shops that offer free Wi-Fi and try downloading from there. The nice thing about Steam is it doesn't need to download updates all at once, rather the download can be split up as many times possible. Internet ...

I saw somewhere on Steam awhile back that this is a known issue with Episodes From Liberty City when you try to play it on Windows 8. Supposedly, installing a standalone copy of Games for Windows Live fixes it, but I'm not in a position to try it.

Ubisoft has since fixed the issue redeeming the Season Pass and you should now be able to redeem the Season Pass CD Key using Uplay's "Activate Product" menu. You can find the Season Pass CD Key in the CD Key menu under Trials Fusion in your Steam Library, assuming you bought it or a bundle containing it on Steam.

It can be done. Mods from the Workshop are just like mods from any other site except they are directly dropped into your data folder. But because of the way Steam Workshop updates mods, you will need to pay attention to a few things: Skyrim Launcher will check your Workshop subscriptions every time it's launched and merged ESPs would cause the launcher to ...

Try to sign into Steam. When you are asked to enter your Steam Guard code, there is an option to send you another code. Click that and check your email. If you have forgotten the email you use for Steam or have lost access to it, you'll need to contact Steam Support.

You can do things like this, as Xbmcbuntu does indded have ubuntu at it's core. it will read from the standard repositories and you can add new ones. however, there are a few things to know. first, sound will be troublesome, unless yo uinstall pulseaudio and have it mix everything, as XBMC does not expect to share the sound device. there are some apt ...

How does the auction work? Once the auction starts every 45 minutes the next highest bid will be displayed and if the person is still highest they get the copy. So every 45 minutes is a copy given away to highest bider. The first auction lasts until December 15th (about 2 days). And not 45 minutes. Steam even says so on the auction-front-page. ...

The author was referring to the steam holiday gems. They are a new feature (released yesterday) in which a steam user can turn their extra junk cards/backgrounds/emotes into "gems." These gems can be used to buy more cards; or, during the upcoming holiday event only, to bid on games. Gems themselves are not tradable, but they can be packed/unpacked into ...

Steam Gems - Auction Holiday Event - from Dec 15th to the 18th. Gems were first created on the 11th for the auction. The auction hosts 2000 games with 100 copies each = 200,000 copies of games to bid for. Is steam gems a new currency? Every 1000 gems you can make a bag to trade in the market. You can buy them from the market. Note: The gems can be made ...

Visit your Steam inventory in your browser and select the gems or gem packs. Hover over the pack or unpack button in your inventory and look at the link preview that appears at the bottom of your browser. Write down the number in single quotes after the 753. Open your browser's console. In Firefox and Chrome it's CtrlShiftK. Enter one of the following: To ...

Ah, I see - the Enhanced Steam plugin for Firefox breaks the page. After disabling the plugins, I see the list of games here.

There dosen't seem to be a way to do that. You just have to go through card by card.

In the steam store click the banner on the top of the page then scroll down. You can use the buttons at the bottom of the list to see more games.
