about GFL, now that GTAIV is sold through steam, does it still require GFWL?

Also I would like to second IWnet as a fail. If I wanted that kind of online matchmaking I would get a console, it's cheaper for starters...
MW2 is such a great game, but it's multiplayer is hampered by the IWnet farce. Not only is it difficult to get a game if there is more than three of you in a party, but if you have more than six it simply won't allow you to join a game as it can't get everyone on the same team.
The lag is pretty shocking too. Not the usual warping or stuttering lag associated with a poor ping (although that is present a lot of the time), but the delay between your local action on screen and the result of that action. Play COD4 for a bit then go straight to MW2 and you will see what I mean, it seems like an age between shooting an opponent and the confirmation of a kill.
So, congratulations IW for taking the best FPS you have made (IMHO) and hobbling it to the point of a 56K modem in quake.
I won't go into the details of dedi server's abilities to allow you to kick the cheats and abusive players, everyone can work that one out (apart from IW!).

The hard Drive with all my games had like 5 gb left, so i wanted my new L4D2 installation in a new Hard Drive (680 GB), but i couldnt, turns out all STEAM games have to be where STEAM is installed, you cant choose a location for any game, so the solution was to move all the STEAM folder into the new hard drive.
So when this new hard drive gets to maximum capacity ( wich will be in a long time), what, i will need a new hard drive and move all that huge folder again?.. That simply sucks and its not the way it should be.

get over yourself, with self importance comes fail and by the looks of it, you're not winning.

Using this nice explorer extension to provide a GUI for it, move a game folder out of steam to another HDD then link it back into the steam folder.
As far as steam is aware, nothing has changed. :D
I use it to copy certain games from steam onto my SSD, and also to move other files off the SSD (another annoyance of GFWL, DLC's are stored on the C: drive and you can't change it normally)
