anyone got the start options to run TF2 in the background with no gui?  Guess its time I try to level up to 10 so hopefully I can get lucky with foils next drops

Not sure if anyone answered but this is what I used:

 

-textmode -nosound -noipx -novid -nopreload -nojoy -sw -maxplayers 2 +sv_lan 1 +map "itemtest"

 

 

Steam Achievement Manager runs every game with achievements without a GUI. Download it, run it, and idle on all of your games without having to install them. Almost all of my card drops were through this.

 

I don't wanna risk getting banned >_>

Regardless, still trying to get Triple Town. If Amazon didn't charge tax, I'd probably have ti right now.

As a general rule of thumb if you've bought a new system within the last year or two (and it isn't just some office station/bare bones system without some kind of dedicated GPU) it'll run every game out there save maybe half a dozen.  You just have to skip on some graphics options, lower resolutions, etc.

Unless you game in a window, I wouldn't consider running a non-native resolution as adequate.

@Squirrel: How much did you spend on Cubemen 2? I got it for $1.25 and made $2ish on the cards.

Well I just broke even with 2 cards left to sell, Ninja Bear and Tombstone. Oddly enough, all my cards sold to the same guy, so here's hoping he comes back to finish the set :bouncy: So what are my chances of breaking even again with Cubemen 2?

 

 

If you get Cubemen 2 for 1.25 you should definitely break even.

I think the card talk needs to be taken to another thread. This is getting silly.

 

I Agree.

 

There isn't enough room for card discussion and a 27 year-old Andy Rooney doppelganger in the same thread.

 

Did you ever notice that?

Dark Souls, Dead Space, Nintendo DS, or Dungeon Siege? Perhaps you want to play multiple DS series.

Where are you getting that price? I haven't got 1 so it is only 50% off for me ($4). Doesn't sound like it's as sure a bet, and as I don't have any interest in the game I will probably sit that one out. As a plus I just sold another card, bringing me over $1.50 profit \\:D/

No one can say for sure but it's pretty likely. It's shown up in every major sale since release so it'd be pretty weird for it not to show up in the Summer Sale.

 

I did pick it up in the sale this week but it is worth noting, DS 1 & 2 are both missing their expansion packs and are lacking multiplayer compatability, though it can apparently be restored through some fiddly 3rd-party methods. Kinda sucks, but the games aren't available digitally anywhere else.

If you can find someone who owns 1 they can get a two pack for $2.50.  In fact I recall someone in the trade thread trying to sell a copy off earlier today.

:( I've never personally heard of anyone getting banned for using it. And there is no way to track that you used SAM unless you unlock all of the achievements and close it, which is just a stupid thing to do anyway. It just sends the appcode to the Steam server signifying that you are playing the game otherwise. If I want to get cards for bigger games, I have to do this; my internet connection speed is like 2mbps.

21" isn't a big monitor, and such a size typically means a resolution under 1680x1050.

This card system is a good incentive for developers. I mean, seriously, how many sales of Triple Town have been made just for the card people? I was planning to get the game in the summer sale, but now I got it earlier. I'm sure the dev is raking it in.
