The Steam Spring Cleaning event is up to get you to play your old games
24 May 2020 at 2:10 am UTC

Well good start here, the first 3 games it recommended were 2 I had finished, Bioshock Remastered having of course finished the unremastered version, then Shadow Warrior where I finished the Humble DRM-free version. And the final game was a proton borked (although somehow it gets bronze on protondb) game Hitman: Absolution.

Add:
So apparently even if the game quits without showing up at all it counts. Fascinating 4th set of games it gave me, the original half life version of Counterstrike, Team Fortress and Day of Defeat. DOD & CS had no servers to play on with <500ms pings and the 4 CS servers I tried had passwords.

Add2:
What a blow out,3 games I tried didn't work with proton, 2 games were multiplayer with no players (let ballistic overkill spend 15 minutes looking for a game). One bright side was it reminded me I hadn't checked whether the recently free Aegis Defenders works in proton.

Phlebiac
hoolaparara@yahoo.co.ukThe OS filter is gone?

There is a little (chubby) penguin icon to filter.

Man thank you for that. Looks nothing like a penguin and would never have realised what that was!

Well I was going to say it had fixed my problem with the wallet stuff appearing under the menu stuff, but I just loaded up my invert skin to see what sort of disaster it was and found the money had moved, so skins fault. I hope someone comes up with a light skin quickly.

As for the client, every time I click on a game I can see it laying stuff out which is clearly slow and clunky. Hmmm I can't see shared games? oh I see they are jumbled up in uncategorized instead of under each user. And it still keeps changing offline to invisible in friends when I restart! The OS filter is gone? (or is that because I have proton enabled?)

Anybody know why humble don't have the American Truck Simulator Special Transport DLC?

Starbound's massive 1.4 "Bounty Hunter" update is out now

Gah, this reminded me to install the new DRM-free version from humble and reminded me I didn't play 1.3.1 because I lost my data and having check it seems to be stored in <gamedir>/storage/* and I upgrade by rm -rfing the gamedir so it's long gone for me.

* I believe that is in steamapps/common/Starbound under steam.

Valve tweaks Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Danger Zone to be focused more on duos
27 February 2019 at 2:26 am UTC

As someone similarly antisocial I'd be upset about this change, but after stopping playing Danger Zone because it crashed unless I landed in the north and reading here the patch that fixed it, I've spent about 15 hours in queues without every getting into a game!

Satellite Reign is currently free in the Humble Store, lots of Linux games on sale across different stores

Hmm if not for the need for the beta driver I'd have bought it at that price. Now I guess I'll wait for it to hit $20 on ferals site, might even have a graphics card that meets minimum spec by then.

What the hell is with that visibility tick box?

It's unticked and says Nobody can find me, as if you tick it to set yourself invisible, but when you do you get whats in the screen shot above it goes green and says people can find me by email and username.

Do they design their UI while drunk?
