Why is steam wrong in its game count?

  • Why is steam wrong in its game count? Meraj99

    Referring to this image, steam says I have 11 games in total and 10 installed. However, if you count them (Yes, I have counted them a million times.), you get 12 total and 11 installed.

    What's wrong? Also, for a fact: I haven't got the badge for 10 games owned, but I have it for 5 games owned.

  • Dota 2 Test is not counted in the first case. Test and Beta versions of games don't count as games, so there is 12 entries, only 11 games.

    Free-to-play games/free trials are not counted in the second.

  • Like all above there are f2p games you must have downloaded another f2p game and uninstalled it. If you download a f2p game your account will count it in the games that you own even if you uninstall it. I have 280ish games but my account also counts some (not all) f2p games just the ones i have downloaded and tryed so it makes my game count go into the 300's.

  • When playing Civ 3 (The "complete" edition on Steam), I often find that the Strategic Resources don't appear nearly frequently enough for my liking. In an area that could fit 10 or 11 cities without any overlap, there was a single patch of Iron. When you add in that a resource can be depleted, this makes the ability to play out the map fairly unpredictable (since you can't see resources for techs you don't have). Is there some way to edit the map generator's strategic resource frequency? Or a mod or patch or something that does this? I'd like them to appear more often without having to use

  • Ok so I've seen the other questions about installing games onto another drive(SSD) and I've already done that properly for any new game that I have been getting. However I want to know if there is a proper way to transfer games from my old drive over to the new drive without having to uninstall and then re-download them. I already tried copying the folders over but all that does is make steam not know where the games are anymore and I'm not sure how to change the location that it looks for a particular game once it is already installed on my C drive. Thank you!

  • So I have two different questions. When I download maps from steam workshop and try to run them there are no options to select the map I had downloaded when browsing maps. What could cause this or what am I doing wrong? Specific maps being the Cataclysm Map Pack and Shinnoh Region map, note that I do have BNW installed and working. My Civilization V won't run on the recommended setting anymore, I click on the option and the program won't start up anymore. It used to but now it doesn't, what's the issue with it? Thank you, Rave!

  • When you have a vast collection you might get confused. What happens if you try to activate a Steam powered game with a serial of a game you already owned? Does the key get lost? How can you tell if it was used?

  • I have just finished installing Assassins Creed IV Blackflag for the PS4 (singleplayer). Now I just want to play the single player mode and skip the multiplayer. When I enter the game screen, it shows that the multiplayer is being downloaded (22% installed and about 11 of 22 GB's in total), and since I am on a relatively slow DSL connection with a strict bandwidth cap on top of that, is there any way to permanently stop the multiplayer download? I don't want the download resuming everytime I turn on the console or play a game.

  • Possible Duplicate: Installing in games Origin already obtained via Steam Now that I've installed Origin, I have the option of registering some of my other EA games (Dead Space 1 & 2, etc) on it. These are games that I've bought and already activated on Steam. So what exactly happens if I re-register them on Origin? Do they get 'copied' across, so I can play them from either service? Do they get 'moved' across, so they are no longer accessible from Steam? If this is the case, are save games compatible? (I'm guessing they are...) What about Steam achievements? I hope

  • started giving it my newly harvested berries. According to a guide I read (serebii.net), it takes a max of 11 berries to reset your EVs (if your EV is over 100 in a stat, the first berry lowers it down to 100, then 10 every time so 252 EVS will first lower to 100, then 10 every time, making it a total of 11 berries per stat). I tried this idea to count the EVs of my gyarados and these were... and lowering down its speed even after 12 berries and went on to 16. I tried to compute the speed EVs depending on its other stat EVs and adding them all up means the speed could have had a max of 130
