So, I think I am done, at least for now. There are plenty of minor UI changes I would love to make as well as some usability things, but I think it might be time to just put it out there and let people try it out and see what feedback I get. (oh and by feedback, useful stuff please. I will listen to all reasonable ideas.)
First a little bit of a disclaimer. This software was developed by me, without input by Valve, so, be careful. I have tested it fairly heavily and even employed some others to make sure to the best of our knowledge you can’t break things, but you never know. There is a restore feature if things g o wrong. So, don’t panic!
So once you have downloaded the install package and installed it. You will be presented with the following screen:
As you can see, it is fairly self explanatory, all you will likely need to do is select the User you are attempting to edit the categories for and click save. If for some reason your Icon sub path appears to be incorrect. Just remove all the text from that box. It is not currently required.
After that, the application will load your data from the Steam files and you will be presented with the following:
This is the screen you will perform most of your editing actions, the actions that can be done are:
- Move a game from one category to another via drag drop.
- Add a game to a category from the side list via drag drop.
- Edit a category name via double click and entering a new name in the box.
- Removing a game via right clicking on the game and selecting the menu item.
- Adding a new category by right clicking the background and selecting the menu item.
Once you have completed the edits, all that needs to happen is select Save to Steam from the File menu and restart your Steam application. On restarting Steam should inherit all the changes.
In the next post I will cover off on some extra features in the Utility including Restore functionality as well as Adding a game outside of the list provided.
Also, please read the About window. This little application may not have been completed without the help of some rather nice people as well as Valve for providing what I believe is the premier digital distribution platform for games.
NB. This Application is not at all associated with Valve Software. So use at your own risk. Thanks!
