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 like to add an answer for the strange cases when someones encounters that first time setup problem and no solution they can find on the Web works. What to do Uninstall the previous version of the appropriate Visual C++ Redistributable so that you game's specific redistributable can install and then tell the Steam client that it (the specific redist) ...

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 ...

This is obvious 4+ years old now but here's the answer, which I found after fiddling around intercepting windows messages. Rename: <steam path>\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\paul.dll to: <steam path>\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto IV\GTAIV\paul.disable.dll Annoying Rockstar Social Club dialog will now be suppressed.

I believe Steam support themselves will know more. There isn't a feasible way for a normal user to find out how 'deleted' a terminated account is, since they don't have access to the account.

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. Any files downloaded when connecting to servers will still be present in the game directory. Having said that, regardless of which game it is, you can reclaim the space still ...

The answer to this is in the Steam Region Restrictions FAQ However, said answer is anything but clear. Basically, for CD Keys (which these would count as), it says Region restrictions on CD Keys vary by each individual publisher. There is no standard or universal restriction placed on retail games. Having said that, I haven't had any problems ...

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 ...

I got on Skype with DavWhodums and was able to find an answer (we know each in real life). First, you load up the Norton Internet Security HUB. Then, go to the advanced settings. Once there, you go to the tab under Network Protection, and turn off Smart Firewall. Once done, Steam will work. Note: For your own computer's safety, you should re-enable it when ...

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 ...

Try moving the entire Supreme Commander folder to steam/steamapps/common/ then installing the game through steam. On the install page with the progress bar (that usually says e.g. Allocating disk space), it should say at some point something like 'checking existing installation'. This can take a while. The game will then be added to the download queue, but ...

To give a simple answer, you have to redownload it. It's possible for some games that the files could be the same, and in that case, you may be able to start it downloading, then exit Steam during the download, move your files in, then reopen Steam and resume your download. It's possible it may notice new files. However, it's most likely that won't work, and ...

Sort of how you must actually use the direct Diablo 3 executable to launch it as a non-Steam game, so too must you use the direct HotS executable to launch it as a non-Steam game. The difference is, with HotS it's not as simple as the direct executable instead of the launcher sitting in the same directory. What you are looking to launch is: ...

Items will expire from the Steam Market after a number of days. While I believe the limit is 120 days (around 4 months), Steam/Valve doesn't actually document this anywhere.

I just looked it up. I ended up on this article. Important: Ensure that you are activating your game through the Steam application. The Steam website cannot be used to activate a game.

I've had this happen to me all the time when Steam's servers get overloaded during the holiday sales. I put up an item for sale, a few minutes later the listing is cancelled and the item is back in my in inventory. When it's really bad, I have had to do this over and over before it sells. I suspect you're running in the same issue I did, and my guess the ...

Please try out the steps shown on the Steam troubleshooting page. If this doesn't help, please look up if the task really is killed by entering the task manager. You can also try to start the game in the offline mode as shown here. (Please be aware that some applications needs to sync with Steam by time.) Restarting your PC always is an option.

I've had similar issues with games, especially Skyrim, and anything I'd played that day would no longer work. I ended up having to restart my PC each time it would appear otherwise I couldn't start my games. Typically I would get it if Skyrim crashed or I cancelled the loading sequence before it was finished. This blurb is taken from the Steam forums ...

Yes, to answer the question in your title. No, to answer the question in your post. Steam is not required for KSP. When you purchase it from the Kerbal Space Program store, you either buy a Steam Key, or buy it so that you download / patch it from their servers. This is a choice you only get to make once. Just click on "Add to Cart" rather than "Buy a ...

You're probably confusing with how the Steam Market works. There is a "Steam Fee" which is 5%, but there are also "game specific fees" for Dota2/CSGO/TF2 (each at 10%). When you sell an item on the market, you're asked for two values: "Buyer pays" and "You receive", which are relative to each other. (As in: Changing one box will change the other). ...

Not currently to my knowledge, instead of blocking them, just click ignore, this will prevent unread chat messages from building up, once you ignore a BOT that specific one should not bother you again. it is hassle to deal with them, but non the less, something may be done about this, due to the high demand for something like this.

Short answer: yes, it can be done As Steam is a cloud service, this is percisely what the platform excells at. If you have two differents computers, simply install Steam, log into your account, download the games you want and play on. If you have Steam Guard enabled, Steam may ask you to verify the new location by a code sent to you by e-mail. However, ...

Make a macro on an external Driver ( if you are using razor or steelseries etc this is easy) on the button to "be" another button that you wont typically use while gaming. Put this in some predefined "gaming" setting that you can easily switch this setting in when you want to play games where you need this keybind. So as an example, make a macro that FN ...

Using Steam allows you to make screenshots and chat via the steam chat system (including voice comms if set up) even if the game itself doesn't allow it. I've found the screenshot feature very useful.

Two things I've figured out: The music files are downloaded to the following path by default. They're in MP3 and FLAC format. You should be able to play them in your media player of preference from here. (MP3s played fine in Windows Media Player, and FLAC played in VLC, for me.)

I contacted Nosgoth Support Team and they actually helped me to fix it. The problem is with family sharing or simply Steam. They said to me: To solve the problem, try this solution: Exit Steam first!

There is no real benefit to installing Steam itself on the SSD. If you're dealing with an SSD of that capacity, you're probably better off installing your operating system and select applications that you use frequently as this will provide the better experience in terms of boot times and overall responsiveness. If you're adamant on using the SSD for ...

No. This function isn't implemented yet. As you can see here, this function's missing right now. However, tags can be banned by Valve itself, but you can't block or ban tags yourself. If you don't like to see a particular game, just click the "Not interested" button. It won't show up on your shop site anymore, still you can access it through search. Games ...

Just putting the Steam executable on the SSD, and not the games, will not noticeably improve your load time ('boot time' is typically reserved for your OS/computer). The Steam executable has very little data to load compared to a modern game, so the decreased load time from hard drive to RAM will hardly (if at all) be noticeable. If you still want to do ...
