So from time to time I'm buying games from foreign countries that have restrictions. I usually do the steam_appid.txt trick and start them from outside of Steam since I don't care for achievements. But I've noticed that even with this trick a few games do get picked up by Steam as "Currently Playing" but others do not. Dark Souls 2 for example does get picked up and F1 2013 and NBA2k15 do not. Can anyone explain why that is? I'm just curious because there must be a reason.
Stop buying cheap games from Russia
This is off topic and not helping at all but thank you for your suggestion.
it would solve the issue though, right?
As I said this is not an issue, rather than a curiosity. I think it has to do with the "onlyallowrunincountries" tag which Dark Souls 2 for example is missing.
