Reinstall without deleting from steam/computer!!??

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by serwinho, Oct 9, 2012.

  1. Is it possible to reinstall the game without having to download it via steam once again?
     
  2. I think it's not possible. I tried it myself and ended up downloading it again. I did it overnight.

    Steam Library -> Right-click on F1 2012 -> Properties -> Local Files - Verify Integrity

    That will basically replace any files that changed since the game has been installed, so it's pretty much the same. It won't delete saved games etc. tho.
     
  4. Also, you can do backup of your installed Steam games (somewhere in the options/properties, can't remember exactly where) na use IT to install the game, instead of a DVD (slow) or downloading it all over again (in some people's cases this way might be faster than the DVD :D).

    That's also a great idea if you want to play on computers which can't access the Steam download servers. For example, I'm allowed to play games at work (during lunch etc.) but downloads are pretty much impossible since Steam changed ports for them. :)
     
  6. Seriously? Playing games at work? Shame on you!! :O_o:
     
  7. It's just a good work. ;)

    I tend to take a 15 minute lunch break every other year. :p
     
  9. I take even longer breaks, but I use them to... you know, EAT :rolleyes:
    Besides, what kind of PCs do you have there, that you can run games on them (unless they're the 2D, Angry Birds type of games). The 3 year old Dell I got at work can barely juggle running a server and a few Visual Studio solutions :D
