Hello Internet.
So i was trying to install a new Steam folder on a removable NTFS partition and it gave me the error.
“New Steam library folder must be on a filesystem mounted with execute permissions”

The solution was to mount it like this:
sudo mount -t ntfs -o fmask=0022,dmask=0000,uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sdc1 /media/USER/Drive
Of course you would have to change “sdc1”, “USER”, and “Drive”

Then create a new folder

And to keep your old games, copy …

Hello my friends.
Foreword:
First of all, i have to say i am not the best expert at this, and i used to do a bit of cracking way back before i get into web application security. So i might be a little rusty.
That being said i will try to cover everything or at least point you where to read up more.
I will start from the very start, if you are experienced in this you should skip this and few other parts (and hopefully i actually wrote more parts in the future)
