I have perhaps 100 games installed in Steam and 50 in Desura. There are even a few duplicates. Other than manually adding shortcuts in Steam to my Desura games (or vice versa), how can I integrate the two? I'd like to create new shortcuts when I buy/download new games in Desura, possibly providing icons, descriptions, etc, and delete those shortcuts when I uninstall the games in Desura.

1Perfect! I think that's something we can definitely help with!– FrankOct 11, 2013 at 13:49
1I don't think there's a way to easily do this. Steam doesn't really integrate with anything but Steam. I just make shortcuts every time I install a new game in Desura and add the shortcut to Steam. You'll also have to make a shortcut directly from the game file, the shortcut Desura creates won't work because it will try to launch Desura.– GnomeSliceOct 11, 2013 at 14:12
However, Desura does have an option to find installed games on your system and add them to your library, but I've never had much success with it.– GnomeSliceOct 11, 2013 at 14:31
- Go to Steam Library tab
- Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library
- Select Browse, and then navigate to where you have your Desura installed, for example:
D:\Program Files (x86)\Desura\Common. Open a game folder, and add a shortcut of this specific game.
As far as I am aware, there are no tools that would automate this process.
