So far, adding a friend seems to be a pain. I guessed a friend’s screenname and typed it in manually. It turns out that it was a complete stranger. However, when I do a search for my friend’s screenname using the Steam Community feature, I found my friend. Same screenname, yet somehow a different ID? When I typed Anthony Salter’s ID to manually add him as a friend, it said it couldn’t find him, but when I did a search in the community feature, there he was.
WTF? As far as I’m concerned, I was doing the same thing. I was adding a friend’s screenname to my friend’s list. So why would manually typing a name give me one result while searching for a SteamID gives me the same name but a different person? Why set it up so that the same friends list allows two different people to have the same screenname? I must be missing something obvious here.
I like that I can add all of my games to my games list and have a central place to launch them. Of course, if this exists, why would Vista have a games-specific folder? Are Vista users supposed to feel good about the redundancy? Just a thought.
