Some time ago it was very easy to copy steam game files. start the download, close steam and copy the files to steam/steamapps/common/.
But now this folder wont appear until the download has finished. It is in steam/steamapps/downloading/. Coping the files there wont solve the problem, because steam saves the progress in steam/steamapps/downloading/state__.patch files, which are not editable with a usual editor like gedit, MS editor or MS wordpad. Is there a workaround?
I want to copy the program files, not the progress in a game.
