Pin Steam Release 8

December 27th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Wide.scale-180This update is for all the users with privacy concerns and gamers of F2P games such as Planetside 2.

Add Steam Game

You can now search for and add any Steam game from the Steam Store! This is useful for F2P games and other games that don’t show up on your purchased games list.


Skip Login

You can now opt out of connecting to your Steam profile. This way you can pin tiles to your start screen without compromising your privacy settings. There is no support for live tiles and you’ll have to add all games with the new Add Steam Game function or as Custom Tiles.


 Bug Fixes

Finally, I fixed a few bugs, biggest of which was one that prevented you from creating custom tiles. If you had crashes when creating custom tiles before, try again now!

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

    any plans to adding automatic pins to other platforms? like desura or gamefly? that would be an instant buy :)

    Hey David. So far, I don’t have any plans for automatic pinning of games from other services, sorry. Most other services I’ve been investigating don’t integrate that well with Windows 8 (missing URL protocol) and also don’t expose an API for getting images for the games. :/ Manual pinning with custom tiles and this guide is probably the best I’ll be able to do for a while: http://felizk.dk/?p=478
