a small tool to manage Steam Family Sharing
Copyright 2014-2020 by Thomas Schmidt (PsyBlade) Licensed under GPL-3.0-or-later
When you get the same game from multiple sources steam selects which one to use. With often less than optimal results (i.e. chosing an much used source over a rarely used one). This makes an manual selection method desireable.
Despite customer complaints since fall 2013 this has not yet implemented by Valve. sfs-select tries to offer that possibility.
It allows you to temporatrily disable single sharing sources. That way you can disable a "in use" library in favor of unused ones. Additionally it can tweak the way steam uses to assign games to the active sources.
It has both a GUI (for casual use) and a CLI (scripting, desktop shortcuts, ...) mode. The full sourcecode (python 3) is included for everyone who is cautious, curious or wants to help.
Use a -full file for new installs. To update to a newer version simply copy the new files over the old ones. Updates form recent enough versions can be done with the smaller -update downloads too.
Be sure to read the included readme for further instructions.
