I have resolved the question. Unfortunately, you cannot view your play time for specific save files on The Witcher 2. Quote from GameFAQs: If you're using the Steam version, it will tell you your overall play time with the game. Not for specific save files though.

Try opening Task Manager and see if Civ's service (Launcher.exe) is already running in the background. When I get this error with games, usually the above is the cause of the problem, and killing the process and starting the game again from Steam solves it.

I would assume there is some sort of data corruption going on here which unfortunately make the data you downloaded useless to you. If a restart does not correct the issue i am afraid you will need to download the files again. If you do not have enough data allowance left you will have to wait, or try tether via your phone/dongle.

Try right clicking the game in your library and hitting properties. Then go to the Local Files tab and check the disk usage. You likely do have data downloaded and there is probably an update required.

No. The only official Valve software which allows you to redeem keys is the Steam PC (or Mac) client. As for unofficial... the only reverse-engineering effort of Steam I know of is SteamKit.

Theoretically, you'll run into an integer overflow before you hit the maximum amount of damage with mantreads, but it requires an entire server to cooperate. Stacking players on top of each other exponentially increases the amount of damage mantreads do. The video shown has only 5-6 players, however it continues to exponentially increase as more players are ...

Steam actually has a built in setting for you to check the FPS of any game. Go into setting and select the In-Game options and change the In-Game FPS counter to whatever position you want. This will then show some small text in one of the corners with the current FPS of the game.

It depends on the game, but essentially anything can happen - the game might run normally, the game might not launch at all, or the game might crash unexpectedly. It's not really worth finding out, so your best bet is to have Steam verify that all the game's files are present and accounted for. What you should do is right-click on the game in your Steam ...

Probably. The OS (Windows 7) constantly accesses files like the pagefile or other system relevant files that add overhead to your hard drive. Moving your games to a separate hard drive eliminates this factor and certainly improves loading speeds. Even moving Steam games to a separate partition improves them, because the system does not load any files from ...

Only thing I can suggest is calling your internet provider. Best thing you can do is get an I.T. guy to come check it out. Only thing I think that's possible to check on your router settings would be ports, but other than that, and based on the comments, I think this is on their part.

I'm not sure what you have tried to solve this problem, but my first thought would be to update your Nvidia Graphics drivers. This is very unlikely but also try verifying your games files, maybe some essentials are missing. It will download the required files.

Step 1: Uninstall the game. Step 2: Find out how much free space the game requires.

It's silly but you could encrypt the file system of that game, give the encryption key to a friend/your mum and tell them to not give it back to you until 'x'; be that you've done your homework or whatever you're trying to get yourself to do. A better idea would be to look into how to increase yourself control.

You can right click on a game in your library and select "Set Categories". When you do this, there is a "Hide this game in my library" check box. If you then want to see the hidden games (to unhide them), click on the filter next to the search box in your library screen (the one where you can choose "Games"/"Installed"/"Recent" etc)
