Hi everyone, see I have non-steam files that I have to somehow get them on Steam. More specificly, I dunno if any of you play X-Plane 11 and I have Zibo Mod which I installed from google drive and have to get it on Steam! Can anyone help pls?

thank you very much! a little constructive criticism: your mic quality is good, but it appears that you need a [better] pop-filter or mic afro. there were times, for example, when using words starting with F and P where the mic picked up a lot of breath. this is a natural way of speaking for everyone, of course, but microphones don't like it. like i said, your mic quality is good, so if you change what i pointed out, it would be perfect! just a friendly tip! :D great video <3

Steam is so dumb at finding existing games. I had to reinstall windows and now I need to repeat this process like 50 times.
ThePeoplesChamp (19 days ago)
+exlipsiae I found out that you don't need to close Steam every time. Just copy the game to the new 'common' folder and begin the installation process.

Answer me and get 9 subscribers (I have 9 gmail id's LOL XD XD XD) i download games from some website and they have items (Kapala Shard in FC Primal) which can be accessed only with steam. But i don't want to spend a single Penny on those Kiwis organization (Sorry if you are From new zealand). Does it mean that i can just add them and access the items and contents.
Low End PC Gamer (4 months ago)
Nope it won't work. For that to work you need to have bought the game on steam

Yo bro i just clicked on this vid, i just wanna ask. Would it worked that I GOT For Honor downloaded FROM UPLAY (Im talking about the app For Honor Uplay version downloaded on my pc) tho i bought the game from steam. Would the game work? Thx man
Low End PC Gamer (4 months ago)
Yes this same method will work on Uplay games bought on steam
MrHello6999 (4 months ago)
This does not work. Your required disk space is 58 gb. And you have 87 gb available. If you now copy the game data into this folder before installation ( 87gb - 58gb = about 29gb free space), steam will simply tell you that there is not enough space for the installation of the game. At least thats what it says for me. Been trying to get my gta 5 data to be recognised as installed for at least 2 hours now but it won't accept it. I have 120 gb free space and the game has about 73 gb. So I think for your method to work you need at least double the space on your hard drive of the required space so it can start searching for files instead of telling you that you can't install it BECAUSE THERE IS NO FUCKING SPACE. Why is there no "search for files option"... If you have any idea let me know.
MrHello6999 (4 months ago)
ok I got it. Start Installation... Don't click "cancel" and just exit steam... copy your files to the game folder... open steam back up when the copying process is nearly done. It worked.

Low End PC Gamer (10 months ago)
It's probably because your files were outdated. Pubg is getting updated regularly if your files don't match the updated files, steam will download those outdated files.
