  1. I'm making this topic to inform everyone about a problem going on with Steam purchases. As the topic title says. Don't purchase Steam games from Steam store right now. Steam Store right now is having a problem. I tried purchasing some games with both Debit Card (Nova Play) and Credit Card (Steam International). I have tried on both Chrome and the Steam desktop app. In both cases, Steam will allow you to add games to cart. In case of Novaplay purchases, Steam will not even open the Novaplay pop-up. It will be stuck in "Working" and then return an error. In the case of CC purchases (where Novaplay is not involved), the problem is even worse. Your items will be added to the cart and then it will take you to the payment review page when you click "Purchase for Myself". Then, once you accept the Steam ToS and click on "Purchase", it will be stuck on "Waiting". I kept it at that "Waiting" page for some hours and yet it did not move ahead, and did not confirm purchase. Worse, I got notification from my bank that my card had been charged. But I did not get confirmation on the Steam app, and also did not receive confirmation on my registered mail. The games show up in the library, but when I try to install it, it shows the error - "Steam is still processing your transaction. Once the transaction has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email. Till then you will not be able to play the game". I am still getting this error, even though it has been some hours since the purchase. I have written to Steam support, but have not received a reply till now and I don't know whether I will get a reply this year or not (depends on if Steam still has some staff working). And it seems that I am not the only one facing the issue. Steam forums has a thread about it where numerous people are facing similar issues, and there is no reply from a mod or purchase team/Steam staff member there till now. It seems even purchases from even wallet funds or adding funds to wallet is problematic right now. So TL;DR don't purchase anything or redeem anything on Steam for now. You might get stuck or might get charged, without the ability to actually play the games you paid for. Take a look over at the Steam main forums and wait until the problem is resolved before making any use of the Steam Store.

  5. Troubles with region locks

    I want to gift a friend of mine, who lives outside India, a game key. 1. Has anybody bought keys from G2A via FK/Amazon? The ones that come in an envelope - how do you tell if they're region locked or not? I bought one of those and all it says is the platform (Origin) and the game name, no clue if it's globally usable or not. Anyway to tell it without using the key? It also doesn't say if it can be activated only in India. 2. Are Steam games bought in India region locked? 3. While it should be possible, if I have the non-Steam version of a game and my friend has the Steam version, can we both play multiplayer together? 4. Has anyone bought Steam games using Novaplay, any trouble? Thanks

  10. The latest Steam client update added native controller support for many of today’s most used controllers, making the task of playing non-controller games much simpler. Valve is continuing its push to offer more options for those playing PC games with things other than mouse and keyboard. The latest Steam client update, currently available in beta, is another step towards that goal. The biggest new feature allows Steam to natively read and recognise Xbox 360, Xbox One, and generic X-Input controllers. This means any of these controllers can use the same mapping features available to Valve’s own Steam Controller, and as of November last year, the DualShock 4 controller. In simpler terms, this essentially lets Steam to emulate keyboard and mouse input on a gamepad, enabling games that never officially had controller support, or ones with outdated libraries, to work on a gamepad. Though not every game will play nice, the vast majority should – in theory – work without the need of third-party apps. The implications for this are massive, such as what developer @larsiusprime managed to do with a Wiimote using a custom driver. The developer is now able to use the controller, albeit in limited fashion, with PC titles. The update also added support for third-party PS4 controllers, such as those from HORI, MadCatz, and other popular fight sticks. All this only recently rolled out in beta, so it should go live for everyone some weeks from now. You can, however, opt-into the beta from your Steam client. For the full list of changes, see below: General Made the error clearer when you fail to install a game and don’t have enough disk space due to user quotas Big Picture Added support for using the overlay keyboard for games that have launchers Improved display when running on retina enabled devices under macOS Linux Improved interactions between the Steam runtime and host distribution libraries, which should let Steam work out of the box with open-source graphics drivers on modern distributions. If using an older distribution or running into problems, use STEAM_RUNTIME_PREFER_HOST_LIBRARIES=0 to revert to previous behavior. Unify close-to-tray behavior with other platforms. If using a distribution that doesn’t have proper compatible tray support, use STEAM_FRAME_FORCE_CLOSE=0 Added idle detection, friend status will now automatically switch to Away/Snooze Fixed Steam not obeying SIGTERM, Steam will now gracefully exit when logging out of a session Fixed keyboard input and cursor switching in overlay for Vulkan applications Update Vulkan loader in the Steam runtime to enable Xlib support Updated libxcb in the runtime with a fix for DRI3-related crashes on open-source graphics drivers Steam Controller Added XBox 360, Xbox One, and Generic X-Input controller configurator support. This allows all recognized controller types to use the advanced mapping features of the Steam Controller Configurator. Note that because X-Input currently lacks per-controller means of unique identification, all controllers of that type will share personalization and configuration settings. As they share the same inputs, Xbox 360/One/Generic controllers will all see each-others configurations when browsing. Automatic conversion will be attempted when loading configurations from other controller types. Unrecognized Generic X-Input gamepad style controllers will be recognized by the Steam Controller Configurator once their buttons have been assigned to match a generic gamepad layout. Recommended configurations specified for a game by the developer will now attempt to assign based on Controller Type. Added option to disable Guide Button issuing a Steam focus change. This is available through the Big Picture controller options menu. This allows better interoperability with other applications which use the Guide Button, such as PSNow. Added Single Button simple button mode for trackpads. This allows a trackpad to be treated as a single giant button. Fix for free-floating On Screen Keyboard running very slowly if a game was open but did not have focus or was running windowed. Added independent horizontal/vertical scaling to joystick move and joystick mouse. Joystick Move mode no longer shows mouse sensitivity option unless mouse output is selected. Added additional support for third party PS4 controllers, including some HORI, MadCatz, and Armor pads and fight sticks. Fixed a bug with PS4 triggers where they were being scaled incorrectly, leading to maxing out of the value too soon. Added ability to change x-input controller order from the Controller Options menu – so in multi-controller setups of x-input games, the mapping of phyiscal controller to x-input index can be swapped around. Note that this currently only applies to controllers that have opted into Steam Controller Configurator support. Fixed Configurator Switch Controller interface not showing controller icons. Re-enabled Gamepad outputs for desktop configurations for users of third party programs which hook into applications via the desktop configuration. Steam overlay Fixed incorrect colors in screenshots and In-Home Streaming for Vulkan applications on AMD hardware Source: VG247

  12. More information courtesy of all the developers at SteamDevDays. Steam will apparently be getting a massive update/refresh soon and the amount of games releasing on Steam has been increasing by a lot. As soon as a couple weeks, Steam will get some kind of major update (source), but it seems they didn't go into too many details as to what will be updated. This confirms earlier leaks, which detailed a slight refresh in the look of the store and giving curators a better presence. Note: This is a store update, not a client update. The last time Steam had a major update we had a new look, new filters, curators, the discovery queue and so on. It was a big update and helped a lot with finding games, so it will be very interesting to see what Valve have in store for us. Since 2014 the amount of games being released on Steam has literally exploded: That's insanity, great for gamers of course and it shows how Valve's approach has changed to allow such growth of their store. The problem with this, is that this kind of growth cannot be sustained in reality. Sure it's a lot easier for developers to make games than it probably was a few years ago thanks to all the amazing tools available, and we will likely see the actual growth of games continue due to this. The main issue is revenue, developers are fighting an increasingly high uphill battle to get noticed amongst the vast amount of games. It also seems like Asia is a huge market compared to what it used to be and it's growing fast, that's nearly 500% growth from one region since SteamDevDays in 2014: Source: GamingonLinux
  13. Digital Homicide Suing 100 Steam Users for 18 Million Digital Homicide developer James Romine has been granted a subpoena order against Valve over the identities of 100 Steam users. Romine, who filed the lengthy subpoena on September 12th, showed evidence that 100 different users on Steam who have made statements about the indie developer in the past. Romine, who collected numerous photographs of several Steam users speaking negatively about their products, is demanding $18,000,000 by these 100 Steam users in damages for “personal injury.” Judge Eileen Willett sided with Romine, granting him a subpoena for “early discovery” to uncover the Steam user’s identities. The evidence presented included several scanned screenshots of Steam users accusing Digital Homicide for stealing assets for their games, as well as accusing the company as being “con artists” who “stalk and harass” anyone who voices their displeasure in them. Youtube personality SubAlpha posted a video heavily criticizing Digital Homicide and their current subpoena request, including posting the documents online for all to see. The subpoena will be handed to Valve, who have the option to contest the subpoena with further litigation if they find it unreasonable. It is currently unknown if Valve will contest the subpoena at this time. This is not the only lawsuit Romine and his studio have filed. Digital Homicide has also sued gaming personality Jim Sterling over false accusations of the developer stealing assets for their titles, as well as assault because of subsequent harassment done to the studio on social media. The lawsuit with Sterling is over the game The Slaughtering Grounds, which Sterling showed off on his channel and criticized for its poor quality. Digital Homicide has also been accused of doxxing Sterling on one occasion. Both parties have been quiet regarding the lawsuit, although Sterling has since posted several videos further criticizing the quality of all Digital Homicide titles. Digital Homicide has eighteen games on Steam, many of which are poorly received by Steam users for their shovelware quality and bug problems. Some of their titles are also released within weeks of each other, with Steam users claiming that the games use stolen assets for faster production times, or offering reskinned games and posting them on Steam Greenlight for approval.

This is simple and I believe every kid knows how to buy games from Steam. Regarding payment mode: Steam gives you various options to pay. You can also use your debit card to buy games. I see you're smart and don't want to pay full price on Steam. Good, look below for various options. You really don't have to pay full price for any game on Steam. Steam store is just for business and stuff. These are the sites I recommend you to look before buying anything from Steam. GreenManGaming Gamersgate Gamestop Amazon Get Games Gamefly DLGamer GameTap Regional sites: Nuuvem YuPlay These sites usually give 20-25% discount for pre-order games. Mainly GMG gives weekly discount coupons. Nuuvem is Brazilian site and has lot of games and sale with very good pricing. YuPlay is Russian site. You know Russian pricing. Do check region restriction before buying. Steam trading/gifting feature allows you to buy games for TF2/DOTA 2 items or for low price. To get started, head over to Steam Trades. This site is filled with lot of members across the globe. You must thinking, why should I trade when I can buy directly? Thing is, you can get games for lot cheap via trading than buying from Store. I'll give you nice example: Saints Row IV (ROW) for 20 keys Keys mean - Team Fortress 2/DOTA 2 keys. These are priced around $2/each on market. But, you can also get keys from forum and TF2outpost for low price. Currently you can find keys for $1.60-1.70. So 20 keys will be $32-34 USD. See? You saved yourself $16-18 bucks by not purchasing from Steam store. Trading games is usually very cheap during sale due to regional pricing. If you're looking for some game for low price, head over to Steam trading or Reddit gameswap and make a post. [H] Money/TF2 keys [W] Game name. Wait for reply, wait for best response and price, check the seller's profile. If it's good and has enough rep, go ahead and trade. If he has bad rep, DO NOT TRADE. I'll give another price example: Splinter Cell Blacklist - 24.53 USD PAYDAY 2 - 15.32 USD ROME II - 30.67 USD WTF right? These are the prices for Russians. So in-order to take advantage,you have to do some homework and find yourself nice friendly Russian. Add, talk, discuss, deal. This section is for making yourself smart with add-ons.
