Episodes For Liberty City
 
So I just got the Grand Theft Auto 4 Complete Edition from today's Steam Daily sale,
thinking that since I already have Grand Theft Auto, I could just use the Episodes For Liberty City Key
on my already existing copy of GTA 4, and I would receive the extra GTA 4 in gift form.

When I bought it, it instead appeared as a seperate game in my library called Grand Theft Auto: Episodes for Liberty City. When I click install, it says that it takes up 16gb. That means that it is a seperate copy of GTA 4 that it wants to install. Now I am stuck with two copies of GTA 4 >.<

Is there a way to un install my current, and make it a gift, or transfer it onto another account? Or like 'split' the EFLC from the GTA 4 in the copy I just bought? :haha:

Thanks in advance.

Only some games it works. Really depends on the developer but in this case nope.

Ehh whatever, it was only 10 bucks.

Likely no, but have you gone into the steam folder system to see if you can copy some of the contents of one game into another? I know a lot of games are held in some bizarre single file storage, but I believe that some are still held in normal folders.

it usually says right when you are on the purchase screen "Warning, you already own X game, if you buy this you will NOT be able to gift the duplicate copy"

It actually never game me a warning. But apparently some people on the Steam forums that day who also had GTA 4 already and wanted to purchase the complete edition, COULDN'T buy it. Like Steam wouldn't let them. So it's pretty weird.

FYI: tonight there is a Rockstar event where you can play with the devs, it's EFLC only, there's info at the social club site. I'll be on, it's usually a full server for a few hours, and they change up the game mode a few times. 5-8pm EST.
