> I also have since not purchased any software from steam based on my experience with them over issues. Games yes, software, never again.
If Construct 2 had a way to self-update then I wouldn't even use Steam for software, but it makes it easier than reinstalling it every time they update it. Although, I'm sure there is a workaround you just need to program something to connect Steam apps with Windows, so that you can set the extensions properly.
Problem with steam auto updates and getting the beta version of construct 2 (because the beta is awesome new features) is that you also HAVE to use the beta version of steam which is riddled with bugs and breaks all my other purchases too. Like game crashing etc.
I like to wind down at night with some multiplayer games with friends.
I went from constant C2 crashes via steam to ZERO in standalone. The time it takes to update the standalone is minimual to the hours of crashes I endured with steam.
Yeah, I really don't like steam with software.
Games, its awesome, software its knocking on hells door.
As for work arounds. There are always ways to get round issues, but most times they cause there own undersired results.
