    Your games should still be there if you reinstall Steam.

    What I meant was if I keep my SteamApp folder, if all the games will be installed and work upon a complete re-installation.

    Yup.

    Or you could just delete the clientregistry.blob file.

    Also, deleting everyting in your Steam folder except for the steam.exe and Steamapps works too.

    I tried both of those before uninstalling. It didn't work. Hopefully this will work now...

    Edit: Hooray! Steam is back up and running. I wonder what made it fuck up before, though?

    I suppose that there aren't many companies which have to deliver content and services twenty four hours a day and in such large quantities as Valve does.

    Google obviously is in a similar boat, but they've got access to a lot more resources.

    I mean, hundreds of thousands of people downloading multi-gigabyte games almost constantly? And the dedicated servers and community service. I'm surprised they cope as well as they do.

    This is most common in flight simulators and space games. You know, where's it's actually useful.

    In fact, I'm sure they only put it into ARMA for the helicopter/plane flying sections.

    It is actually really awesome for infantry too. I can keep my gun tracked in one direction and still look around, and then just snap back and be looking down the sights again without having to reaquire.

    And I'm not even talking about TrackIR. I just hold Alt down to look around.

    35 seconds in this shows the mapping with TrackIR. It's far from 1:1.

    edit: 6:00 for infantry stuff.

    TrackIR is one of those things that sounds stupid when you hear about it, but when you actually see it in use it's like woah.

    It looks kinda cool, a friend and I were debating on picking it up since it has co-op but we decided to wait until it's released and some reviews are out since it's $50 and we didn't want to drop it on an unknown game.

    Think of it as shifting your view and not just your neck, using your torso as well as your head. In real life, you can easily look around behind you while oriented in the opposite direction, and peek around corners and stuff using your upper body. Heck, even just using your head with your torso locked, you still have a wide range using your eyes+peripheral vision.

    Also, think of it as a video game cause in real life I can't fly an A10 Warthog with a mouse either. :P

    Family Guy is all about taking an okay joke and making it so long that it just becomes awkward.

    Is there a list of the games which support Steamworks and can therefore be bought retail and then downloaded on Steam?

    Also, my Steam Worms Reloaded entry doesn't have a proper icon for the large icons view. It looks as if I've added it as a non-steam game, which I haven't. Is this normal? I'm sure it had a proper image icon at one point.

    There is indeed a list, something this important should be in the OP.

    With big bold letters.

    Edit: Also it should be under a brightly colored header, like a FAQ.

    You know that digit that we humans have that help separate us from lesser animals that is commonly known as a thumb? My mouse just so happens to have two buttons for that.


    Also, I've started not reading the steam sales posts because I never seem to play the games I buy so cheaply. I'm a bad person.

    Steam is like reverse piracy. Instead of not paying for games I play, I pay for games I don't play.
