12. Re: Steam Beta Allows Custom Installation Locations Sep 12, 2012, 14:45 2nd_floor
 
How how about letting us select whether we want to download files for a game installation or get them from the DVD that is in the drive.

15/20 games installing on Steam, I have had to cancel the installation as it tries to download 2GB, 4GB, maybe 6+GB, restart the installation, and usually on the 2nd time it gets it from the DVD (never asks you which one you want to do), sometimes it takes a 3rd try.

And then they can put in version numbers for the games we have installed, in the list on the left side. (But they want us thinking like Microsoft does: just see the game you want and click play, do not worry or even think about what is happening behind the scenes, it's all done for you! Just spend money and click play, we'll do the rest!). Everything about computers is version numbers, put them in dammit! (At least make it a user option to display them!)

Damn controlling of users!
