    No idea. What if you add that to a .bat and try to run it?

    Indeed, the Steam versions of the Doom games are run using batch files, so that might help.

    I'm not positive on a solution either, and Steam can be fucky when it comes to taking screenshots in Dosbox, but if you right-click your non-Steam listing for it in Steam and go to properties, "Set launch options" is where you usually add everything else. So you'd have "Start in: D:\Games\Albion\DOSBOX\" and "Target: D:\Games\Albion\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe" and then click set launch options and slap in "-conf "..\dosbox_albion.conf" -conf "..\dosbox_albion_single.conf" -noconsole -c exit".

    Just pulling it out of my ass though, can't remember what I did last time I added a Dosbox GoG thing to Steam since it was a few years back.

    Yeah, I'm stumped. The weird thing Lands of Lore, the only other GoG game I have installed currently works with no problem at all. Only changed the target, and renderer to OpenGL. The overlay don't work, but I can take screenshots, while Albion just totally craps out. Weird as hell, but oh well, appreciate the help.

    Some interesting things about top wishlists: https://store.steampowered.com/search/?filter=popularwishlist&os=win
    • Bloodlines 2 at the top. With all that livestreams and front page banner, looks like it's generating more "engagements" on Steam than The Outer Worlds.
    • I noticed some people doing un-wishlist campaign for games that turned into Epic exclusives, The Sinking City and Industries of Titan for example. But as far as I can tell, both games has climbed up the list since and it's not just because of some games there are released.

    Purchasable game vs non-purchasable game seems like it should matter here. There's more reason to wishlist a game you can buy.

    Once steam dies I'm done with video games. I am super autistic and need the hours to be counted on my profile or else I can't play. It's the main reason I haven't played Mask of the Betrayer.

    Apparently it does not show up in the list if a game has no release date data set. Now that Halo: The Master Chief Collection has one ("Coming Soon"), it reveals Halo is the most wanted game by Steam users!

    Interesting. They will probably lose out on this, there is a lot of gifting going on, and all that money will just disappear.

    Hmmm. Recent responses on it though.

    Are the current VR headsets even successful? Sure, Valve should have numbers from HTC, but I don't really see much excitement about them. What's worse in today's market: They, I assume, aren't good for streamers (or are there streamers using VR)?

    (I think their exact numbers might be wrong by a lot since they're making some wrong assumptions, but the general trend seems obvious, it broke the total amount of users using Linux somewhere mid last year and it's well on the way to 1% userbase in the next few months with gradual growth).

    Also see the VR thread: https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/rift-vive-vr-general.109448/page-5

    Wonder what Valve releasing Half Life VR will do, and LOLStreamers.
