I have asked this question on Discord to one of the most prominent members of Steam Community Market: the creator of ASF and an administrator of Archi's SC Farm (more than 1.5 million members). He confirmed that the description is misleading: the implementation of buy orders is not what one would expect. Basically: with 30 unrestricted bots, you could set ...

Buy orders cannot be edited: they can only be cancelled so that you can set new buy orders afterwards. That being said, if you have several unrestricted accounts with money as Steam Wallet, you could: keep the original buy orders on your main account, set new buy orders on one of the other accounts. This way, you would not lose your original buy orders, ...

The Steam Market page for an item is created after someone has offered to sell the item for the first time. For instance, if you check a game which was recently accepted for the feature of "Steam trading cards", e.g. Clea 2, this is how the page looks for one of its items (:florinehappy:):

The CS:GO knife which you linked to in your question is not a commodity. That means that each item can be purchased separately, because items could have unique characteristics. There is no priority queue of sell orders. However, you are right that there is a priority queue of buy orders, described as such: You can place an order to buy at a specific price, ...

I did exactly this with Dark Souls 3 and its expansions and it worked. So I guess for The Witcher 3 too. Could I buy the GOTY edition on GOG and transfer the saves? The saves are saved in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\The Witcher 3\gamesaves\ (Source), both when running the game from GOG and Steam. So yes you can and you don't even need to transfer the saves, ...

Yes, you can.You'll need: Target platform (Windows, Mac, Linux). Target architecture (32 or 64-bit). Steam appid. With Steam fully closed, run it with the -console startup option, or click steam://open/console (Steam Browser Protocol shortcut). Go to the Console tab and type the following commands (and press Enter at the end of each): 2a. @...

The game should support multiplayer and it will only usually let you invite a friend to play when you are in a suitable section of the game, such as a multiplayer lobby or a game that has an in-game option enabled that lets friends join you. If, for example, you are in the main menu of a game, it usually will not let you invite a friend (unless that main ...

Isolating it to DLC-only... Why do you want that? If it's just to keep file sizes down, you can download it, pull it out of the folder, then delete it. There's no DRM in that sorta way. Okay, found one I can test with. Yeah, getting it to appear... Haven't figured it out yet...

A server can also not appear in the public server browser if it has not been launched with a valid Game Server Login Token (GSLT). These appear as 32 character hexadecimal strings (16 bytes) and can be added to a server with the following command-line argument: +sv_setsteamaccount [token] You can also use the command sv_setsteamaccount [token] from the ...

Accepted answer is not quite full: beside copying contents of steamapps/common/<game_name>, you should also copy steamapps/appmanifest_xxx.acf file of your game. Those .acf files are plain text, so you can find one for specific game by opening them with notepad. Also, you may want to edit installation path inside this .acf file, e.g. replace disk "...

This all came about because of not being able to connect to bethesda.net I changed the proton version to specify 6.3.8, That allowed me to connect and then everything worked. (Previously I was using proton-experimental)

Based on some of the comments on this bug from 2013, this message is triggered if Steam is unable to launch a child process by executing a script which it creates under the affected library. Here are some reasons why that might happen: The script lacks execute permission in its filesystem mode (the x flag in ls -l's output). But Steam created this script, ...

No publicized IP limits related to SFS, but do note that Steam can be a buggy bandwidth hog. As long as it's not being abused to rent games to other users or cheat it seems like it's perfectly within the ToS, but if you have any doubts you can try asking Steam support. Does Valve care to stop this? Is it against the terms and conditions? Will I be punished ...

You can control it with a community tool called sfs-select. If you want to avoid the above program, you can also edit the "AuthorizedDevice" section of the "Steam\config\config.vdf" file manually, which will require you to identify the account by putting its number in a link such as https://steamcommunity.com/tradeoffer/new/?partner=...

If you try to download a game and stop the progress, it creates the file/folder structure required. Close steam as an appication, then once you copy over the game from *\Steam\SteamApps\common* then you need to find the config file (normally, just look based on the time/date stamp on the files under *\Steam\SteamApps* - it will probably be the latest file ...
