      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

The Steam Deal/Sale Thread

 

Here is where we post the best deals on Steam and also help others in emptying their (and our own) wallets and increasing the backlog of games.

 

 

Steam unable to update itself and deleting clientregistry.blob doesnt work?

 

Try this....

 

-Download TCPView.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897437.aspx

 

-Whenever that happens, open TCPView & find Steam in the list of processes.

-Right Click, Close Connection.

-Steam will open up a new connection with (probably) a new host.

-Repeat until you get a stable download rate.

Actually I would happily pay that amount in USD for a DVD. I shudder to think all the time needed to download that on my puny 256 k connection.

@supersim - your gfx card will be the hurdle. Check out systemrequirementlabs with your pc for the games.

 

Also, for whoever buys the games, you don't have to download it all at once. I think Steam will just put the codes in your account - after that you can dl as many times as you want.

Depends on your budget. If you are willing to spend around 9-10k the ATI 4850 is good. The 9600 is about 6 k which is not half bad. Lastly you have 8600 around 4 K.

 

All of them will the games from steam at high-very high settings.

No, they are not. Ubisoft titles are generally region locked. Same goes for some amazing bundle packs like the one we are discussing. If I remember right, the GTA pack containing all GTA PC versions till date at an amazing price point was region locked. Same for the Rockstar pack as well.

 

Nash could have checked and told us, but his Steam account is not an Indian account I believe.
