    Grand Theft Auto IV LAN Party night on Friday 3rd February. Arrival any time from 5pm, with the event running 6pm - 11pm. £5 for attendance.

    We've done this one before but

    1. We didn't get to explore anywhere near all the possibilities the last time.
    2. Cops n crooks is an absolute hoot.
    3. I've not picked out things properly for flight night yet so that will be moved to later in the month.

    Um, does this mean you're boycotting Gaming Scotland?

    Ah yeh, I'll move to the 3rd Feb instead of the 10th.

    3rd doesn't work too well for me, but it may be I'll just get the event set up and let you guys carry on, doesn't take much organisation on my part.

    Just forgot, was trying to structure the theme nights as best as possible as I've already got a heap of work commitments over the next month or so.

    What you worrying about? Business comes first and you might even see us at these foreign shindigs.

    Personally, I 'm still toying with the idea of Epic 8.

    If you can't download it again I daresay someone could make up a backup for you.

    Downloading it again. I have a backup but steam won't let me restore the backup for some reason.

    Same actually - spotted this when restoring stuff on to the store PCs at the weekend, you run the backup restore and then it just starts downloading the game instead.

    Have you tried deleting all local content and then running the backup? If you've started to download a game in the past, even if just 1% of the game is there, attempting to restore from a backup will only prompt Steam to download the game instead.

    I know I certainly did that but it still would only download this game. Aware of that same issue, but GTA seemed to be an exception.

    Fixed the backup problem :). Apparently switched to a newer way of restoring games so backups made before the update won't work any more. Had to use a program called phoenix to restore my old backup and it worked.

    By any chance does this apply to all steam backups?

    Don't think so as most of my library was restored fine , only things that didn't work were gta4, mw2, dirt 2, and l4d2.

    I restored backups of Dirt3, CSS, TF2 succesfully. Just GTA that wouldn't work.

    That's comforting to here. I'd hate for 340GB worth of backups to go to waste and neither myself nor BT would be terribly happy if I had to download 500+GB of games again.
