    For a lot of games the devs have locked the mods so that they can only be downloaded by someone on Steam who owns the game. If you tried to do this and got an error message, that is what is going on.

  2. Puro

    doesn't work for all games

  3. ALT

    it sucks that they shut it down especially when some of the games i got on itch didnt come with steam codes

    Im not trying to buy games multiple times like they're skyrim

  4. Goodscratcher

    screw your bogus. guess ima just have to wait until letms m109 shows up on top-mods

    Tried but not working anonymously logged in, there is no point to log in with an actual account to check if you own the game, if you own the game on Steam you can download the Steam mods without any problem by subscribing…Thank you tough for the effort of making this video but I think you should change the title, especially that the reason most of us here want a solution to download Steam workshop mods owning games from Epic…

    Not working. "Probably requires login with an account that owns the game"

  7. FYI, you don't actually need the last website, the numbers after the command are the game ID and then the workshop item ID, the app ID can be found by just going to the workshop, it can be seen in this video as well before he clicks on the mod, and then the item ID is visible when you are on that mod, it's the last part.
    I am not saying his guide is wrong, if you want to download multiple items it's easier to have 75% of the command ready and just add the item ID, this is still a good place to start. This is from SteamCMD: workshop_download_item : workshop_download_item <appid> <PublishedFileId> : download an item using the workshop system

    It doesn't work
    Steam>workshop_download_item 394360 2777392649

  17. Whiplash

    This only works for like 2 or 3 games as far as i am aware. Please update your title/ description to reflect this, if you care about the community as it looks like you do by the concept of the video.

  18. Adam Manthos

    Thank you for this well explained and blessedly short tutorial. It works perfectly for workshop items when the selfish shit's don't lock the content.

  19. Quintin Tostes

    I did everything like you said but get an error in steam cmd while downloading the mod. It's a 3.2 GB map for BO3 zombies

  20. Raidtron

    I tried this for escape simulator but can't since it requires an account that owns the game

  21. Adam Hujerat

That happend with "Total War: WARHAMMER III" and the url says to me "Probably requires login with an account that owns the game." im trying to help a friend to download the mods, and he has the game bought on gamepass
