“Steam connect failed” – Modern Warfare 2, July 2016

Some users are newly observing that they are unable to connect to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 online services recently. It appears that after nearly six months of allowing VAC banned users to play online freely, they are now rejecting them once more.

Writing this today as it was very confusing to figure out for a friend why they were unable to play tonight. They had a VAC ban in the game from six years ago.

Hope this helps, and sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

Arma 3: Apex available now!

Arma 3’s Apex addon is now available. With this major DLC release comes the new terrain of Tanoa as well as a variety of new weapons, vehicles both land and air, as well as a new faction – and much more!

Check out the Store [] page for more information!

Side-load Garry’s Mod content, CS:S, HL2:EP1, HL2:EP2

For those who don’t own Counter-Strike: Source, Half Life 2: Episode 1, or Half Life 2: Episode 2 playing Garry’s Mod might be kind of a pain. Here’s a link to addon packs you can extract into your addons folder to side-load this content.


Extract the folder within the archive into your addons folder. Historically this would end up being something like below:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons

Counter Strike: Source


Half-Life 2: Episode 1


Half-Life 2: Episode 2
