  1. Steam for buying old computer games


    Hi all, I am new to this site and wanted to see if anyone could help me out.
    I was looking into buying some of the old computer games that I played as a child. I bought the CD disk Pajama Sam and googled how to get it to work on my desktop windows 10 computer.
    I tried doing all the steps, even watched several youtube videos and I just couldn't get it to work. Even tried scummvm with no luck. My folders always showed it was greyed out and "zipped" even after unzipping them they stayed greyed out.

    So I found this site called steam and it shows that I can buy the game for $6.99. If I buy this game will it work on my new desk top HP windows 10 computer?? I know its not a lot of money but I would hate to waste $7 for it to not even work.
    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Steam game crashes

    Hi,

    To assist you better, I would like to ask some questions:

    • Does the issue occur only with Steam games or all games?
    • Are you able to view videos?
    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    I suggest you to update the Graphic Card driver by following the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapters.
    • Right click on the driver and select Update Driver Software.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to update the driver.

    Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Step 2: Reset the game from the Settings menu.

    • Click Start and click Settings.
    • Select System.
    • Select Apps and features.
    • Find the game and click Advanced options.
    • Click Reset. You need to restart your computer to let the changes take effect.

    Step 3: Try to uninstall and reinstall the game.

    If the issue persist, we highly recommend that you contact Steam support for additional troubleshooting steps.

    Steam Game Sharing?

    http://www.joystiq.com/2013/06/19/rumor-steam-beta-update-file-suggests-game-sharing-is-coming/

    This sounds pretty awesome, if true. There are a lot of old games I don't play that I'd be willing to share with friends, and there are some that I'd want to play but not sure about actually buying as well.
