Switching between Linux/Windows causes games to update
Mostsly these are only 1-100 mb updates per game, but sometimes I got message that executable file is corrupted and have to download whole game once again. Has anybody encountered something similar?

do you shut your pc down normaly or just hold the power button?. haha

It's not related to shutdown. As long as I update game and play on one OS, it's ok. When only I switch to the other, I get corrupted files and have to update.

are you using the same path for steam on both windows and linux?
Mattrick Jan 14, 2013 @ 5:23am 
My Windows Steam is installed on H:\Steam, while the one on Ubuntu has 2 games directory: one native in my home dir and second added manually, pointing to H:\Steam. No symlinks were used. :P

well its just installing the OS specific data to play your games... you will need seperate installs if you dont want it to dl a little bit when you change systems. i use symlinks for windows/wine (except for valve games, dont seem to work for me on symlink) and linux has its own lil place on my partition
