When windows boots, it will label ya drives. The coupon can only be used with a 30 Euros-minimum purchase, so fuck it. Because that would be a damn travesty. There is no such thing as backing up games in uplay. I'll try looking for registry entries later this evening when I have time. How Many Games Are Available? Just throwing some ideas out there.

Moving your Steam and Origin games to a new OS installation

how to get origin to recognize installed games

Originally posted by :Worked great for me. Oddly enough Ive had it happen that Ive clicked an old icon and the game does the loading screen for whatever icon Late night in this case but once the game boots the expansion is there. Did you try what I mentioned earlier? In the example below, we can see that Crysis 2 : Maximum Edition is one such title that does. Big shutdown we had today, isn't it? The data is automatically moved. Is there a configuration file somewhere that I need to edit? Start Origin and the download. In layman's terms, that means if you buy it Origin, you've got to play it through Origin, and if you buy it through Steam, then you've got to play it on Steam. I am new to using more than one hard drive so I imagine I am overlooking something obvious here.

Does anyone know how to fix this or if Ubisoft have thought or are thinking about making this possible in an update? I think you said that you directed it to the right directory though during the installation prompts. Many thanks, have a good day duders. Im sure most dont care , lol, but thought this might amuse some people. Battlefield 3 says I need to install Origin to play the game. You can modify the commands to suit your needs. Not sure why you could play and now can't? I have a gtx670 and high res monitor, which is more than capable.

Get steam to realize I have games already installed

Didn't try the first one so might not work. Thanks DemonTomato93 i have that trouble also. Is the folder path incorrect then? If Origin goes offline while a game is moving, the move will fail. Last time my Origin worked was long time ago; I've installed a lot of software since then. I'm looking at the root files as I type these, I can even see the executable! Try uninstalling and reinstalling Origin and then specifying the game folder. However, Origin Access does offer a week-long free trial you so you can try it out.

Tried running them from the folders they are in. In Steam it is simple and easy to select a game and chose which hard drive to install it to. But i would think using origin and steam would be a problem if my above suggestions do not work. I received a reply from them after just 2 hours which is incredibly fast, if you consider the fact that it's Sunday telling me that I'll receive a Product Key anyway and that it can be used to activate the game on Steam as well.

Origin games installation location help.

how to get origin to recognize installed games

Last updated on October 25, 2013. I uninstalled and re-installed steam. This is, of course, after a few hours back and forth with customer support asking me to check ports, anti-virus, etc. I installed Guild Wars 2 and it launches without a problem. Is there a way to do this on Origin? All three games I downloaded to this drive have this format. However, it works by simply copying all files from one location to another, then creating a junction point where the old files used to be. Well if ya had done that, you could easily troubleshoot your problem.

I can't open Origin (Solved)

how to get origin to recognize installed games

If you do, this is a great way to do things. Well you might be clicking on an old desktop icon from your previous install. Origin doesn't have them, and I'm not sure about downloading it from any other source. Reinstalling Origin does nothing but reset the icons in my Start menu to empty again. I havent installed any antivirus on the system yet since I just got it and started downloading games, so that cant be it. .

Not the answer you're looking for? For about the first two days, I could play the game, but now Steam won't recognize that I have it installed. I get in the game instantly. Alternatively, you could try to move the game folders to a temporary location for the time being, if you want to be really, really safe. I can see the games in the folder under that drive. Origin is running right now as I type this.

But when I actually try to play them, I get an error message that Origin isn't installed. This is the folder path. Don't know if there was a grace period for when that was possible, but it was at least possible at some point. Now, I am trying to open it but absolute nothing happens; double click and then… nothing at all. Im not seeing any error messages. Steam is a digital distribution service owned by Valve.
