** UPDATE YOUR STEAM GAMES **

Postby AlienX » Thu Jun 04, 2009 7:14 pm

Hi people
I know a handful of people who dont use steam on a normal day to day basis.

There have been a few updates recently on steam, i cannot stress enough that downloading steam games at the LAN will get you a big slap from the staff...

Just get your steam files updated.

Also - for the usual games, like css, tf2 etc etc its best to check the game cache for errors, you can do this by right clicking on the game, selecting properties, local files tab and click the "Verify integrity of game cache..." button - if steam finds a problem it will re-download the faulty files.

Hope people find this reminder helpful

As a side note to this, UT3 is £6.99 at the moment on steam.

That's el cheapo for a game which is now totally playable after the titan pack fixed it!

for those who've bought the games but not had the bandwidth to download them from steam, I'm sure I can share my steam games folder so you can copy the source files.

you'll need to own the games though, won't work otherwise.
