Hi there. I've seen that all my games are being counted as played under Windows, when the only game played there is AoE II:HD, while the rest were played under Linux. Is it a bug or Steam doesn't let you know the platform of choice for each game? Best regards.

I've just seen that I can choose the platform in "My Games Collection", but it's awfully tedious to change each game to Linux. Is there a better or easier way to do it? Can it be automatically detected by the scanners?

Having platform for steam seems unnecessary. I don't think steam shows anything, it just supports it like all other software does.

The most likely solution is that you will have to manually change all of your games.

The Steam API's give us nothing to determine the platform you've played the title on, but we can see what platforms the title will run on - hence the ability to choose a platform. You can select this via the "Game" dropdown on the game pages.

OK, thanks. I suspected so...
