I did this several times and I'm sure it works, i did it yesterday when my brother needed help with the same problem. It might not be the cleanest method and wasn't listed in the comment, so i just describe what i did exactly: Step 1: DELETE EVERYTHING! Yes, you've read it correctly. Right click on the game and press the "Delete local files" button. You ...

Well, no. You just forgot to wait. Garry's Mod downloads all the updates before decompressing new workshop files downloaded through Steam. When you start Garry's Mod, it does the following: Check for any updates on existing addons. Mount all addons that does not have an update. Download all the updated files for addons that are unmounted (needs ...

After asking around in the Mortal Kombat X subreddit, which I knew would have more hope, a user (Denitorious) and stated the following: Confirmed.

Seems as the only possible solution (for now, I hope) is two Steam installations with the game in each one. Not ideal, requires double disk space, but at least you don't have to wait for download each time. Close Steam if it's running. Copy Steam.exe from your Steam folder (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam) into a new folder (for example, ...

If you cannot launch Rust in the new version, I would close all extra tabs (Skype, TeamSpeak (which should be fine if you are in a low quality voice chat room, which uses less bandwidth), RaidCall, things that use alot of bandwidth), and launch it at poorest graphics. Becareful of the ping of the server you are on. The Official server has lots of players ...

The mission is bugged and will not properly display how many snipers you've killed. I've done this mission before and you just have to keep a mental check of how many snipers you've killed. Once you've killed 10, you'll get the achievement and the relevant weapon mods.

Honestly, your specs are not too good. The issue with the loading screen is probably due to the slowness of your hard disk, it might have problems if the HDD is almost full. The specs are kinda low, the problem with Indie games is that they are usually less optimized then triple A games. Also, remember that Skyrim came out in 2011! ( God I'm old ) It ...

Didn't really find a solution it. You're not the only one though. See this steam community thread I also found a reddit thread where someone stated that he managed to download both version and run them. Other suggested to try to download two instances of steam with both language and then run both games from there. I'd suggest you try to install two steam ...

Essentially, yes. According to this Humble Mumble blog post, they have stated that they'll be removing OAuth support for Steam, which is the main method of redeeming keys through a third-party/link. And that all purchases made before the 12th of January 2015 can still use this method up to around the start of Febuary. Anything bought after the 12th or is ...

You can do what Ross said, or if you have the WHOLE library folder with you, you can shut down steam and copy it over the on your current steam library. When you open steam, it should be there. (ps. You will need the GTA V folder ("SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V\") and the appmanifest_271590.acf file ...

You'll need 130 GB of space, maybe a bit more, to copy the files in the manner you describe. Steam first checks to see if you have enough free space to install the game, then it checks to see what files are have already been copied to machine. So you'll need 65 GB of space to store the copied files and additional 65GB of free space just so Steam won't refuse ...

If you mean Steam-powered specifically then it should be fine. Do note that there are games sold via Steam that use third-party DRM. There was one game (CoD4 trial?) which I installed via Steam only to be told that I can't have Process Explorer (from SysInternals) running at the same time. So there are some bad apples even among Steam games — if they use ...

According to Steam support (in a ticket I've sent), when you go overseas, your Steam Store billing region is automatically assigned based on the IP address you logged in using. So naturally (for example), buying a game in Malaysia (despite having all your games bought from the proper full-paying store in Australia/USA) will impose the region restrictions ...

From the Official TF2 wiki: This hat is given to players who purchased Team Fortress 2 before the Über Update on June 23, 2011, those who receive a gift of the game, and those who activate a retail copy of the game, such as purchasing the Orange Box.

I searched a bit and it seems to be because of your graphic driver. Try starting the game with Steam overlay deactivated. If the deactivation doesn't help please go to your graphics card Catalzst Control Center and set Anti-Aliasing settings to Filter:Box. This fixed the Problem for some people. Make sure you have the latest version of your graphics ...

If steam cloud is enabled for Payday 2, all of your save data should be restored when you reinstall Payday 2.

If you use the steam cloud, all settings applicable to the stock game (without mods such as Hoxhud, ...

Steam does not auto-download preordered games. It doesn't auto download any games. It only downloads what you manually select for install, and since you can't install preordered games yet, you are out of luck. Except if it does offer preloading as mentioned by Orc JMR in the comments.

This is going from memory from the last time I pre-loaded a game (Portal 2 in 2011). As you guessed, the game files Steam downloads are encrypted. When the release date rolls around, Steam downloads a game update which (presumably) contains the decryption key, then it start decrypting the game. If you've seen what Steam says when it starts to launch a ...

Some people have the same problem, but here is the solution. First, if you have more than 1 GPU, it's normal : Thief does not support (as of March 2014) multi-GPU. Maybe there was an update since then. Of course, you have to check if you're using the latest drivers, and also if you uninstalled the previous one, to be sure they're not conflicting. A user ...

Sorry for this late answer. Codesmasters has finally changed the system from "Games for Windows Live" to Steam in April 2015. According to several online game sources, it should now be possible to activate a GFWL copy in Steam. One of the source may also be this wikipedia entry.

You can have ARMA II and the free version of Arrow head to make the Dayz Mod work. They only thing you may experience is lower graphics quality, because they don't put the HDR Graphics into the free package. Don't forget to start each game up so they can register in your system before trying to play Dayz mod. Wouldn't hurt to update your battle eye also. ...

I'd expect so, but the best way to check would be to try it. cp ./.steam/game_data/ ./2tb/blah mv ./.steam/game_data/ ./.steam/old_game_data ln -s ./2tb/blah/ ./.steam/game_data And fire up steam, see what it thinks. If it fails, remove the symlink and move the game_data back.

Ok, I found the answer, and it's a weird one. Basically, it was Time Machine's fault. I use TM as my backup mechanism, but I back my system to an external HD. So, I naturally assumed that my backups were all exclusively on that external HD. Nope. Time Machine takes liberties with the free space on your system partition. It uses as much free space as ...

It's been a while since I've removed a Multiplayer game on Steam, but on Windows, my experience is that uninstalling a multiplayer game through Steam will only remove its base files.

The answer to this is in the Steam Region Restrictions FAQ However, said answer is anything but clear.

Save file formats entirely depend on the game, and many games will use any combination of binary or plain text formats. While Steam hosts many games, it does not define how a game should manage its own data. Games published through Steam will therefore widely vary, and it's no different than if you got each from their publishers. The Steam Cloud simply ...

The Alienware Alpha supports keyboard input even when you're using the console UI. I can't say whether Steam big picture mode will allow you to open a console in a game when it's running, but if it does then you will be able to enter console commands. This assumes that you're referring to console commands in games - you might want to edit your question to ...
