Found out about Desura from a Steam post.
The color on the button looks like a cancel option or a greyed out option and the (other versions) confused me, but since it was a fact i didnt have desura installed, i clicked on the black button, hoping it was not solely for "other versions" of windows.
Now where are the games i just bought? Hmm. Check here, check there, couldnt find anything, it said i had no game registered on Desura.
Later on i tried again to see what i missed because none of the games was showing in the client and the "you have no games registered on desura" message was annoying. Didnt find anything but i saw a wonderful looking mod, G String for Half-Life2, tried to download it and thats when the big problems began.
Soon as i tried to download the mod, Desura crashed and gave the options to restart, force update or exit.
Ok so i decided to uninstall and reinstall Desura, more waiting for the fabulous 35.5Mb update, install ok, wooo my games now show on the list, the joy.
Ok so now i have to uninstall and reinstall AGAIN? and if i dont want to lose the slow downloaded games i have to search and find them who knows where before i uninstall....at this point i realise ive been wrestling with this confusing mess for over 2hrs and didnt achieve anything other that getting more annoyed than ive been in a looong while.
Next day i calm down and start rummaging through folders to find where the games are installed, noticed i could start them directly from there without starting Desura, at least thats cool.
My biggest complaint is the lack of a help menu and lack of a tutorial in the help menu. The help button takes you to the forums....lame.
