I tried Kingdome Come Deliverence with followings your instructions, but the discs each install in total 3,5 gb of game out of 35 gb..... Each disc has 7.5 gb worth of game but it won't install it, help me i'm desperate, otherwise it's gonna be 2 days of downloading...
IndianTechGuru (4 months ago)
Dear Kevin, please install your game using discs first. Install in C drive and then move the installed game content to other folder than install folder (e.g. C\GameData). Now uninstall it, then use the procedure showed into the video. Note - If everything worked right and game still needs big size updates, then maybe the game was updated so much after it was released on your discs. So it can not be avoided, you have to update it first before playing or alternate is to get the fresh files from your friends. Hope it helps. Cheers mate :)

IndianTechGuru (9 months ago)
Hello ! I hav downloaded that game. Its not on steam. It is on some cracked platform. So you can not install it on steam. My method only work for games which you have purchased on steam. Please buy the game and install.

sandy jackson (10 months ago)
in which folder am I supposed to paste my game ?
IndianTechGuru (10 months ago)
First install the game from CD to a different location than C drive, like D or E drive. Then Cut the game folder (In which game files are installed) and paste it to Other folder. After doing that uninstall steam that is installed with your CD. Then add the game to latest version of steam using this method.

Royal_Mav (1 year ago)
i have a question, if i add a game that is already in steam but i didnt download it from steam, will steam recognize the game or will it be an unknown game?
IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
If its free, then start playing my friend :D Go gaming !
Royal_Mav (1 year ago)
but what if its free
IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
Steam will recognize the game if you have the game purchased in your library.
Filip Firulovic (1 year ago)
i wanted to add EYE: Divine Cybermancy and did as you did it: Put the game files under the name of the game in the common folder, that i made because i had no other games before it. Is it me, or this doesn't work for me because the game name has the double dots in it, that i can't type in a filename?
IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
Yes
Filip Firulovic (1 year ago)
so, you are basically telling me my method is alright, but i should check out the name?
IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
Can you ask anyone who have this game installed already ? Ask for exact folder name and retry mate.

If you purchase the game on steam, you can use data files from cracked game.
Mohid Shaikh (1 year ago)
can we integrate the entire game data files? like 0 downloading from steam
IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
Yes. But you need to get updated data files which are latest version so that game do not need to download updates.

pnexus (1 year ago)
You need something different. You need to activate those expansions in steam. In the lower left corner of Steam you have "Add a game", there select "Activate a product on Steam", when it asks you for a code insert the code that came with the DVD.

IndianTechGuru (1 year ago)
Hi ! Start downloading the game ans stop. Then follow the tutorial and copy the files you already have to the downloa d location and restart steam. Recheck files and you will be good to go. In rare cases if you the files you have are so old, then they need to be updated online.

IndianTechGuru (2 years ago)
+Shivam Pandya My dear Shivam. As you can see in description. This method only works for games that you have purchased. This method can only save you bandwidth as you have to download smaller amount of data for installing the game. But game mut be bought on steam.
HardSkull Gaming (2 years ago)

This method does not support piracy. If you want to play a game on steam , buy it. This method can only save you downloading that game.

NOTICE: ... ALWAYS REMEMBER... When or IF you buy Games on Steam, It now appears you ARE NOT actually BUYING YOUR GAMES. What is happening is that you are (apparently) RENTING them ONE-AT-A-TIME .... because (after they [illegally?] changed their program this year [preventing a game-play status you bought into before then]) IF you have two (or more) Computers in your house, and you try play TWO games of (what you thought were) Your Own games now, Steam PREVENT you playing on both computers in your home at the same time (even if you have two laptops sat side by side and you try playing two games at once). QED: You rent them one at a time; because If you had Bought them, you would be able to do what you like in terms of playing them..

It's not working with the Sims Medieval for some reason... my mistake for buying it on disk before checking out Steam and seeing if they had it. Looks like if I want the pirates and nobles add-on, I'll have to rebuy the game again with the pack... -__-" Damn it EA...
