1. Do you need support for Assetto Corsa Competizione? Please use the proper forum below and ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Logs" folder in your c:\users\*youruser*\AppData\Local\AC2\Saved. The "AppData" folder is hidden by default, check "Hidden items" in your Windows view properties. If you report a crash, ALWAYS zip and attach the WHOLE "Crashes" folder in the same directory.
  2. FOR ASSETTO CORSA COMPETIZIONE: If you report issues with saved games, please always zip and attach your entire User/Documents/Assetto Corsa Competizione/Savegame folder!
  3. If your game executable is missing, please add your entire Steam directory to the exceptions in your antivirus software, then run a Steam integrity check or reinstall the game altogether.

    So in our little Facebook community of lithuanian simracers, I have frequently seen G2A being mentioned, and wit ha crazy low prices, I have never really looked into it, but now after seeing this video, I am quite amazed that such thing was never mentioned.

    I wonder if it is all true, and if Kunos ever suffered from this.

    Also I'd like to share this video, and if it really is like that, then I think no one with self respect and should use that site:

    Well, someone should just tell those Scumbag Steves that it's much easier to launder their money buying and selling bitcoins lol

    EDIT: BTW, I only buy games (the very few ones I own) from their official sources, whenever it's possible from the developers website, IMO they are the only ones entitled to get rewarded for their hard work...

    Honestly, **** G2A and anyone who supports them (sponsorships, partnerships or whatever). The basic idea of the service is commendable suppose (digital second-hand resale in theory), but G2A has been going about it in just about the scummiest, most anti-consumer ways possible with plenty of potential issues for developers. And then issues like mentioned in this video I didn't even know about... I don't like the business practices of some devs/publishers either but I'd much rather support devs of games I like directly through official channels (stores, crowdfunding) on their terms.

    I used it once and the game never worked so thought it was a scam. I would have never thought about the criminality going on, being an honest person you do not think people would be so dishonest. Thank you for sharing the video.

    Yup G2A is shady. They try (or more like tried and succeeded, but now the word has gotten out more) to keep "respectable" facade, by sponsoring and sending xmas gifts etc. to known YouTubers etc. but lot of those dropped their G2A sponsorhip/links as soon the word got out more. (Some sadly still use it, like TheSLAPTrain) Also, sometimes key are indeed revoked, happened to a friend of mine. He bought Hitman 2016 from there, and after 2 weeks Steam revoked the key and game stopped working.

    But imo more disturbing than the idea of the key not working, is that indeed lots of keys are bought with stolen credit card data. You maybe think that's too cheap to resist, but what if this was yours / family members credit card that was stolen, account emptied. And used to buy 10 000 steam key, to sell then on G2A.

    Very good video, not many people are aware they support money laundering by buying from there. And sadly, I've bought from there too when I didn't know of this. Not AC/DLCs though. My keys worked, but still it doesn't mean they were legal.

    I've found that these sites work well for EA and Ubisoft games only.

    just kidding!
