I want to play hl2dm or CS:S or other steam games with my friend. I got 2 computers, both HL2(dm) + CS:S installed. I guess we both can't use the same account. Can he use his own account in my computer?

uhh.. and offtopic, what has happened to my avatar?!?

Ummm, no, you can never use the same account at the same time. Yes, he can use HIS account on YOUR pc with no trouble. Especially if you already have the games installed I think. Lots of times I want to play DoD, but I dont own it, so I log into my dad's account while he is gone, and play DoD on my PC, since he owns it. Steam was designed for that kind of "mobility". And I bet whatever was hosting your avatar had the file corrupted somehow. Try rehosting it, then resubmitting the new link. Or if you uploaded from your PC, just reupload.

WHAAT?? I don't see how that works. Honestly, I don't believe you, and won't until I try it myself.:) But, I have the feeling I will find out you were right. It's just kinda unbelieveable. AFAIK Steam safeguarded against all sorts of that stuff, but, like I said, I have never tried it.

haha, it's really easy, just log in on your steam account at comp1, set up a server or something, then sign in with the same account at comp2, and you can join comp1 :o

piece a cake! :)

That's odd. And couldn't steam realize that at some point? I mean, if you did that all the time, could you ever get caught and it be banned from one of the PCs or something like that? And that reminds me, I've seen it happen to other people a few times in garry's mod, but earlier today I was trying to play Gmod online, and the servers would all load fine, untill I tried to join one. When I did, all servers stopped responding. I restarted the game and same thing happened each time. I got sick of it and went onto CSS but when I tried to join a CSS game, it said that my steam account was being used in another location and I needed to re-verify my password. Did I get hacked or what exactly happened?
