[REQUEST] Allow Steam login to 1 Linux and 1 Windows machine
As part of the slow but eventual transition from Windows to Linux gaming, I feel the shifting pains more often of late. I'm finding myself more often having a single-player game paused on my Linux gaming rig and having friends want me to join them in a multiplayer game that (currently) only runs on Windows. Every time the scenario arises, I have to exit the other game, shut down Steam on Linux, and log back into Steam on Windows, then launch the game in question. It would be much better if Steam allowed simultaneous support for such scenarios.

Being able to launch the same game from both clients is not necessary (and causes logistics problems), and could be explicitly locked to prevent it.

If it is single player, you can always run the linux version of steam on offline mode.

Also they won't do this as they want you to buy those games twice. You can't blame them, they're a company and companies work for profit.

LOLCAT, if they really, absolutely, wanted us to buy games several times at the cost of annoying a small subset of users, they would have started by not enabling "Steam Play", that let you buy a game once and play it on any supported platform.

That would be way more straightforward than trying to make extra money out of people wanting to play several games at a times, and only them (whom amount to way less people than the previously mentionned subset).

I don't think it's up to them to decide, only for those few games that are made by them. They're all old and hardly anyone would buy them again. Steamplay is not meant to be nice to users but to attract more. Which brings more profit, as these users would buy new games when/if they come out.

LOLCAT, your comment doesn't make any sense.

Steam doesn't let you being logged in two computers at the same time to avoid account sharing, it's as simple as this.

And if can't share but want to play on two computers at the same time, you have to buy the game twice on two different accounts. It's not my post not making sense, it's you being slow to understand.

No thats not what you said actually, maybe you meant to say that but you didn't.
It's not about playing the same game on 2 computers at the same time either thats not the issue here.

And yeah for a singleplayer game you can run steam in offline mode so you can log on the other computer to play with friends.

he wants to run native steam and windows steam inside wine at the same time on the same machine. i think... if it is two separate machines then fair enough
sLLiK 2013년 6월 22일 오후 1시 25분 
Nope, two separate machines. I have them connected with the same keyboard and mouse via Synergy.

Since a similar problem might arise when the Steambox launches (logged on two different hardware), I guess they should have been thinking about something?

If not, maybe they should better now x)

See i think this would be a great idea though, in my case i have both the windows and linux version of steam on my linux machine, the windows one runs under wine since there's some games that don't have a native linux client but will still run just fine in my windows version, It'd be great if I could say have something downloading in one client while playing online in the other

This is fairly old, but I'm going to bump it because it's the first Google result.

I've started hosting my own Starbound server... it's a modest server that can only handle five folks, but it's not costing me anything.

Anyway, I have my older laptop running as a Linux server 24/7, and that's where I host my Starbound games. As it's a beta, it's getting updated very frequently, and I can't update both that game and the Windows version of the game at the same time.

Downloading the game from the command line requires logging in, and downloading on my Steam account on Windows requires logging in. If I log into either while the other is downloading, it kicks me out.

Perhaps there are licensing issues with allowing you to use two copies of a game at the same time, which is understandable. A possible solution is to allow two logins (One Windows, one OSX/Linux), and not allow the same game to be played on both sessions.

Clearly, some code is already present since it's possible to sign in on mobile devices and desktop devices simultaneously.

But the download doesn't stop, so what is the problem?

Okay, I don't really know why you're so against this idea. You seem to just want to be argumentative. I also proposed a possible solution.

I was wrong when I said it kicked me out... half-way, anyway.

When logged in on the Steam Windows client, if I log in with SteamCMD, it immediately disconnects the Windows client. All downloads are halted, and a prompt comes up asking for your password. You would have to either start a game or switch to offline mode before you logged in via SteamCMD. It's a pointless step.

If SteamCMD is currently downloading and you try to login with the Windows client, it simply doesn't allow you to login AT ALL until the SteamCMD connection is closed.
