Your SteamID in use? Well thats a new one, i never actually heard that one before I posted this on the Steam forums, in hope you would get an answer there, perhaps you should go to the link i post below where i posted it:Caramon of x3 said:now im even more puzzled lol. I can host hldm games but I can't host esf games because my steam user id is in use, but i can join games. Nothing makes sense about it lol.
im havin the same probRocky said:I am now having this problem as well, and it only recently started after ESF updated through Steam. I try to start a server, and it starts to load, but it just goes back to the title screen. I tried restarting Steam and a couple of times it gave me that "Steam is already in use" message, but that stopped on the third try.
With that said, I read your post above mine. What do you mean by "ESF updates through steam"Rocky said:I'm not installing it wrong because I've had it installed for a while. I did install version 1.2.3, and my copy of Half-Life is legal.
