TF2 Help on steam?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I installed TF2 on one computer, but now when I go on my other, it's not in my games list. Also, when I go to their page, they want me to pay 19.99 to get it. I thought it was free for this weekend? How do I get the free weekend download?
Thanks for the help.

You'll have to download it again obviously to your new account but if you bought it and logged in with your steam ID it should be in your games page.

Yeah, it was in my games list on my other computer, but it's not on this one...

Do I have to uninstall it on my other to play it on this one?

if you don't own it it will not be in your games list unless its installed, where it will be in the grayed out category: "installed"
you should be able to download it on both computers even from the same account

Ah... found the problem. Apparently as soon as I sign into my friends list all the problems disappear... Maybe that meant I wasn't signed onto Steam on this comp or something...

for future, your Steam account is transferable between PCs, and so are your games, but you need to install the games on each PC you want to access your Steam Account from.

I suggest using backups

I had that problem on Friday and all that had to happen was for me to close Steam and start it up again. This "refreshed" it and allowed it to realize that it was TF2 free weekend.
Yay!

I think he may have installed TF2 while logged into someone elses Steam account?
