Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

fzsT8.pngCoping with Steam: Artistic Commentary on Our Shared AfflictiontErbf.png
Spoiler:



fzsT8.pngMost Frequently Asked QuestionstErbf.png

1.  Steam's search tool is cumbersome and not very informative. Is there a website, other than Steam's, I can go to find out what's on sale?
2.  Can I register this copy of (Insert Game Here) on Steam?
Here's a list of games you can register on Steam. You can always add a non-Steam game to your Steam games list, so that people can see you playing it. You can also use this to add your own shortcuts with fake names to your Steam games list to make it look like you're playing Episode 3. Hilarious, right?

3.  If I buy a game pack that already includes a game I own, can I gift that game?
Not usually. You're welcome to ask in this thread, although if you Google it it'll probably be answered even faster. Valve games are typically the only packs that let you do this, and even then it sometimes doesn't work.

4.  Why isn't {Insert Game Here} available in my horrible little corner of the earth?
Many Steam games might be unavailable in your country if you have the temerity to live outside of the United States. This is not Steam's fault. Regional game availability is determined solely by the publisher, who should be the source of your ire.  Gifting works regardless of region so you might find some helpful person in North America who can gift you the game. This very thread is a great place to ask!

5.  How do I get an invite to the Penny Arcade Steam group?
The most convenient way is to just post a link to your Steam profile page (getting one of the swank signatures described below makes it easy) and ask for an invite. Just as a word of advice, we tend to prefer that you be a regular contributor to get an invite to the group. The rule of thumb is 6 months of activity on the forums. We are well known for our generosity, and like to make sure any new additions are here for the good of the community, and not to leech during sales. That said, we're a friendly group, so make yourself at home and start posting and you'll be there in no time!

fzsT8.pngSome Words on GiftingtErbf.png

If you receive a game or pack via a gift or a contest, remember to thank that person either through a PM or by announcing it in the thread. This is not optional. We are classy gentlemen and will act as such.

Steam's new gifting features allow you to store up games in your gift bank when you purchase them, instead of having to email yourself the gift link. It'll be an option during checkout.  


A few things to remember as a giftee:
1. Make it possible to track you from PA Forums to Steam. A link directly to your steam ID is usually the most convenient. Remember, your Steam ID is different than your steam name. If you just include text to your steam name, we have to search and scroll through 5 pages to find you (and we may not find you if you're not using the same name/avatar combo!).

2. Make it possible to track you from Steam to PA Forums. Best bet is using similar avatar/name. Understandably, some people don't want to do that. In that case, you should have "I'm ______ on Penny Arcade Forums!" in your profile blurb.


Generally speaking, if you're selected for a gift from a stranger on here it will be, usually, one of two ways:

You will either post in the thread (so they will go to your profile to friend you and then to the store to send a gift.
—or—
Someone will want to gift a certain game and go to the store page where you can see everyone who has it on their wishlist.

Also, remember that a gifter can see when you added a game to your wishlist. If you add it on the day of the sale, you might have a smaller chance of being gifted it than someone who has been interested in it since release. Gifters should also make sure they are identifiable from Steam to PA Forums. Some people are shy and are too nervous to message a gifter and say "hey thanks, I have no idea who you are on forums!"



fzsT8.pngAn Important Word on ConteststErbf.png

If you decide to run or participate in a giveaway contest for gift copies of games, please remember that all entry submissions must now be made via PM. The forum mods have stated that pages of the thread being filled with pictures, videos, etc. submitted as contest entries will lead to such contests being banned. So please, for the sake of the thread – take it to PMs.  



fzsT8.pngHelpful StufftErbf.png

Steam Mover
Does your Steam library have 800 games? Do you wish you could move some of those games to different hard drives instead of deleting them entirely and then downloading them again when you want to play them? Steam Mover is here for you.

Steam Price Guide
Do you have the misfortune to live somewhere other than America? Steam hates you! Luckily, this cool website with prices for Steam games all around the world is here to help, so you can know if you want to ask an American friend to buy the game for you or not. Hint: you probably do.

Aussies
You need this program.

It reconfigures your Windows IPSEC settings (run it as an admin) to block out all but the servers which don't count towards your download quota on Steam. Now supports a bunch of ISPs through a graphical interface.

Basically guarantees you won't add to your download quota with Steam.

Also: Download TCPview: TCPView

Then, use TCPview to close all Steam TCP servers (this is important, NOT the UDP ones, just the TCP ones). Steam will then reconnect to a different server, which will hopefully get you a better speed. If you don't go faster in a couple of seconds, retry until you get a speed you like.

I've also been told you Aussies might want to try Angus Wolfcastle's SteamManager. Setting it up is easy is you follow the instructions here. If you find you're still being charged for your steam downloads, try changing the setting like in this link here.



fzsT8.pngCool Community Add-OnstErbf.png

Steam Signatures
With such a cool service, someone must have done some extra things to build on it. The forums have one such man, who made some super cool Steam signatures. Suds is his name and killing is his game. Except for the killing. The signatures automatically use backgrounds for the games and the correct icon.  Pretty neat, and they're 100% free!

Sample signature:
steam_sig.png


Steam Calculator
You can also use a script on his Steam Calculator page to see how much your Steam account would be worth if you had taken advantage of some obscure, arcane combination of special deals that nobody could ever have taken advantage of. Or something sort of like that.

Steam Roulette
Having trouble picking a game out of your burgeoning [strike]backlog[/strike] gamebank to play?  Let VicWhiten's Steam Roulette decide!  Just type in your Steam community ID (easier if you set up a custom URL on your Steam profile page), and Steam Roulette will read your library and randomly pick one game every time you hit "Spin the Wheel!"  It even connects to Steam to allow you to install or start the game with a single click.

    Important item in the news feed people should be aware of.
    Dear Steam Users and Steam Forum Users:

    We continue our investigation of last year's intrusion with the help of outside security experts. In my last note about this, I described how intruders had accessed our Steam database but we found no evidence that the intruders took information from that database. That is still the case.

    Recently we learned that it is probable that the intruders obtained a copy of a backup file with information about Steam transactions between 2004 and 2008. This backup file contained user names, email addresses, encrypted billing addresses and encrypted credit card information. It did not include Steam passwords.

    We do not have any evidence that the encrypted credit card numbers or billing addresses have been compromised. However as I said in November it's a good idea to watch your credit card activity and statements. And of course keeping Steam Guard on is a good idea as well.

    We are still investigating and working with law enforcement authorities. Some state laws require a more formal notice of this incident so some of you will get that notice, but we wanted to update everyone with this new information now.

    Nice, good on Steam for the disclosure.

    Also, the credit card I was using at that time has expired now, so I should be good.

    Still, good to know. I'll be keeping any eye out.

    Yes. These are all games from when MP was a bonus and SP was the focus. Unlike many of today's games.

    MotS had such a steep jump in difficulty once you got to the last planet. I finished it when it first came out but on my playthrough 3 years ago I abandoned it on one of the last 2 levels.

    Here's the rundown on the Star Wars games from one of the biggest Star Wars fans on these forums. I'm serious, I love Star Wars.

    Star Wars: Dark Forces
    This is one of the greatest FPS games ever made. It's easily up there with DooM, Duke Nukem 3d, Marathon, and all those other awesome games (Heretic, Hexen, Blood, etc.) I would say that it's better than DooM and about as good as Duke Nukem 3d. In any case it does tremendous things and it was the first to do a number of them. I played it through a month or two ago and it was tons of fun. Cannot recommend enough for $1.24 if you at all enjoy oldschool games, first person shooters, Star Wars, or all three.

    Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II
    Dark Forces was a groundbreaking game that did everything extremely well. Dark Forces II kicked it up a notch. A story that doesn't suck, FMV sequences that are actually pretty good as far as these things go, absolutely massive levels, spectacular shooting, force powers, and a lightsaber that hasn't been equaled since, I'd say. You kill pretty much everyone with one slice, and often arms or heads go flying. If you only buy one game on sale, grab this one.

    Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II: Mysteries of the Sith
    Played the demo for this and liked it, so I bought it during the winter sale but I haven't played it (almost done playing through Dark Forces II, though). I'd say grab it.

    Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Dark Forces III: Jedi Outcast
    Outcast is pretty great. The first few levels are a little too faithful to the older Dark Forces games, because they're stupid key hunts in Imperial bases which fail to realize that the gunplay isn't as fun, but once you get the lightsaber things get pretty awesome. Kyle Katarn makes a pretty good Jedi Knight and the saber battles in this are off the hook. The main antagonist is a dinosaur man. A very fun Star Wars experience that I can certainly recommend.

    Star Wars Jedi Knight III: Dark Force IV: Jedi Outcast II: Jedi Academy
    Basically Jedi Outcast + goodies. You can dual wield sabers or wield a saber staff, and chill with Chewbacca or whatever. If you like Jedi Outcast and want more, this game will not disappoint. It's nothing special but if you're a Star Wars fan you'll have fun. Bonus: you choose your character's race, and if you pick some of the aliens, it looks pretty ridiculous when you talk with a normal voice in the cutscenes.

    steam thread: at first I thought it was ridiculous that there was a hat store for portal 2. then I looked in there and they sell a pack of everything they offer for just $10.
    this... seems like a reasonable way to serve the newell. please advise.

    Think of it this way - While there is glory in serving The Newell, do you really wish to encourage the inclusion of Hats to future Valve games?

    Perhaps your $10 would be better spent elsewhere, dare I suggest some Train Simulator 2012 DLC?

    Can you imagine how many hats they could fit in DOTA2? I don't think you can.

    You probably wont have to imagine once it's out!

    Dark Forces was the first PC game I bought for my first own PC (a 486 DX2) back in 1995. That Doom meets Star Wars was glory made videogame for me!
    I am considering getting Jedi Outcast or Jedi Academy mainly for the multiplayer. Is it still alive? I suppose most of the people playing online will be in Academy, right?
