I only have a couple hundred games but I'd be willing to share with a few people here once I'm granted access.

Wonderful. I added funds to my steam wallet to purchase the remaining cards for my wife and now I'm locked out of all market transactions because I used a new payment method. So now if I don't even get all the cards necessary for her to craft a badge, I can't even sell the cards I have. Thanks, Steam!

Thanks, Arutha for the two cards!

I'm looking now in search of #2, 5, 8, 9, and 10. I have a duplicate #7 to give back or pass forward to others. Add me on Steam if you're able to help! Steam ID: Lord_Zath

Update for Steam Family Sharing today.
Quote:
New: Lenders to authorize family members’ accounts
We’ve made a change to the way Family Sharing works in the most recent Steam client beta, where lenders must now identify the Steam users who may access and play their shared games on shared computers. This allows lenders more control while reducing the risk of VAC or other bans resulting from an unknown user accessing and abusing shared games on an authorized machine.

Family Sharing is now a two-factor authorization process, where up to ten Steam accounts on up to ten machines may be authorized to share your library at a given time. Any of these ten users may log into any of your ten authorized machines to access and play your shared games. Additionally, users may still request access to your shared library by sending you a request from any machine where you've installed games.

To authorize up to ten family members to share your games, visit Family Sharing settings using the most recent Steam client beta update. Our FAQ have also been updated to reflect these changes.

We figured out you have to use software like VNC to set up Family Sharing between different users making it pretty impractical.

It takes all of about 5 minutes, it really isn't that huge of a deal.

It is if you don't really know the person well you're sharing with. I'd just rather not bother.

There is always that too. Yet like anything else I rank my games on what I want to play next and if someone has something I want to play that is ranked higher I'll download it and play it (Two brothers comes to mind). All I can say is the Holiday Sale was bad since I kept getting notices that so and so added new games to their library and then I would have to go and check and see what they added wink.gif

I used Teamviewer when I setup the authorization. Yes they have control of the computer, but I think could still kill the program if anything funny was to happen, not that I expected anything. I just made sure I put my pr0n a few folders deep biggrin.gif so it was not so visible on the desktop

So somebody VNC/RDP etc into your machine, logs in locally to some account, then launches Steam under that account, login to steam with their account, authorizes the machine. Voila you have access to their library?

Well, I'm hoping after the beta they make it easier to share. It really is impractical. If I want to share with my elderly parents in Florida there's no way in hell I'm going to be able to guide them through it.

Basically. Although it's far less complicated with teamviewer than RDP. Just share the session id and password so there's no need to exchange IPs or login info or anything. Just stay logged in, watch them take over your mouse, log in to steam (your password is seen as *****), authorize and then log out and disconnect the session. The only skills required on the receiving end are double clicking an icon and reading a few numbers, it's super simple.

The other option is to temporarily change your password, share the temp password and let them login to steam and authorize, then change it back to your "real" password.

Doesn't sound too bad.

Another question, I assume when I see your shared library I have to download the game. Do I have full access to the game or is it crippled in some way? Like what's the incentive for me to buy it?

It's the full game, but you can ONLY play a game when the other person is not using their library. ANY game. So say I shared my library with you, and you started playing Bioshock Infinite. As soon as I start up ANY game in my library, a warning will come up for you to save your game and quit, or you get booted in X amount of time (think it's like 3-5 minutes). So that's the incentive to buy the game. And since you have the full game already downloaded, it would basically be unlocking it.

Beyond not being able to play it 100% of the time, the only cripple is that you can't buy any DLC for it, or get any trading cards. I do believe they've changed it so that you can play DLC the sharer bought though. Other than that it's full blown access to the game.
