Installed a game
chadhughes 30 Jun
I've installed a game by "Add non-steam game" and selecting the MSI installer. It worked, and the game installed fine but I can't find where it actually installed. I've looked through ~/.steam but I can't find it in there.

Can anyone tell me what prefix it uses and where the files are actually stored? I'm looking for the drive_c folder it installed into.

Thanks in advance!!!

I think Steam should have an option to see local files. Not sure if this applies for non steam games.

Also you said it was an MSI installer . Did you install a windows game with wine/proton ?

Should be installed in the proton wine prefix in the "compatdata" directory. Non-steam game prefixes are the ones with very large numbers. A sort by date should easily reveal it.
