Today’s Skyrim patch has some unfortunate side effects. I’ve turned off updates for the game in Steam for the time being, but I can’t find anywhere that indicates whether it’s already been updated or not. Steam and silent patching aside, it’s useful to know what version of the game you’re running, especially once mods start […]
First off, I’ll give some background on why I’m asking this: I enjoy Steam achievement hunting, so I have no intention of unlocking all achievements. However, there are several games (E.g.

How can I find my steam ID? I haven’t bought any games; I am playing a free one. Is the ID only created if I buy a game?
This is more of a general question about the best way to expedite Steam downloads. I’m on a slower DSL line at home so if I end up with multiple downloads from Steam running at the same time it bogs them all down. If one of the updates happens to be a game I want […]
I have been developing a mod for Prison Architect recently, and now I believe it should be added the the Steam Workshop. I’ve looked around, and this post says to . . . put it in your PA mod folder, start the game, menu/extra/mods select your mod and then click upload. Here’s a screenshot of […]
