If you are using ChromaCam to remove background of your webcam in OBS, Skype or whatever you are using your webcam for and notice ChromaCam not working after major Windows updates then you must reinstall your graphics driver again for Windows to recognize ChromaCam as a video input device again.
Windows update messes with your settings, graphics drivers and input devices sometimes and especially on the major updates.
Dead by Daylight has monthly online ranking reset 13th day of each month. And this month I have moved into a new apartment, played a lot other games and overall been busy with life, so naturally my online ranking has been low in Dead by Daylight, as has been my time for playing the game. You can also see from the screenshot above that I have only played Dead by Daylight for 10.7 hours past two weeks, my profile page is public so everyone can see it also.
I was rank 13 and ranked up to 12 from that game, survivor ranks were 15, 10, 18 and BullyHunter_69 had 14 so that was fairly balanced.
Normally I would be rank 1 but I am still not so sure about this ranking system, haven’t really had the time to play much to see how it’s like or what rank I would be now with the new ranking system. And no, I do not derank on purpose for easier games, I like the challenge.
76561198261444821 wanted me to save while killer was camping. I didn’t know if the killer had NOED or not but I knew I didn’t have borrowed time.
So I went to the hook, even while he kept doing the “killer is camping” emote. I tried to lure the killer away by opening the exit gates hoping the killer would chase me and others could save but..
I realized (and too late too) that other survivors had left the game.
I kept trying to lure the killer away from the hook so I could try to save without getting blink grabbed off the hook – or fall down before I manage to unhook.
I didn’t get the save and the killer camped way too close to the hook, so instead of being mad at the others who left he whines at me in-game and writes this to my profile page.
Here is a quick 4 minute video of the incident.
Thank you Dead by Daylight (game) for getting all these wonderful people commenting on my profile!
I even had profile comments disabled for years and I decided to open up them just for people like this.
So.. I got asked to play for someone else using their Steam account.
I didn’t know what it was for or why he asked me, or even how he found about me.. So I played along to see where it was going. At first he asked me to play using my own account. I was busy with life and had recently moved to another apartment so I was nowhere close of rank 1 because of the monthly resets. I played a game as rank 9 killer, I depipped. He said I played well and had thought for some reason that I had actually pipped in that game.
Then he asked me if I could play one game on his Steam account, I didn’t ask questions and agreed. He was rank 1 killer so I thought he wanted to see me playing at the rank. This game was to be uploaded to Youtube, which I did – you can find the video here. I killed 3 out of 4 because one of them lost connection, either a game bug or due to me being cautious and using a VPN to protect my IP address because the owner of that Steam account got the IP address from an email automatically when I logged in.
Yes, I know.. You are not supposed to share, transfer or use another persons Steam account but I assumed it was only for the rank difference and he really wanted to see me playing at rank 1. And what’s the harm? He already had rank 1 and I only played one game, versus rank 1-3s. It was fair game either way and I didn’t touch his Steam account in any other way. Didn’t even check his recovery email address. He asked me to family share his Steam library with my Steam account but I refused and didn’t link our accounts.
Then he asked me to play again on his account at impossible hours like 6 am my local time when I would be asleep. Then again at 18:10 my local time when I could of in theory done it but was still on the fence if I should risk it by logging to someone elses Steam account yet another time. That could have severe risks to my own Steam accounts, if Valve were to say I stole his account or something similar.
Then few hours later I went on the Dead by Daylight Steam discussions boards as usual where I try to help people having trouble with the game and learn more about the game, and to keep up with recent issues and events.
It finally hit me, I were to play as him versus some popular person I am guessing, I really have no idea about streamers since I never watch any live streams of any games. I only try to stream my own gameplay to friends and other people who might be interested in my playing, after all it’s all public and open to everyone.
So I just wanted to tell the truth about what happened to me on one of the forum threads about this particular person.. And as usual I didn’t really know how he would feel about it. Sorry!
Here are the threads about this whole thing, at least the ones I could find with ease.
And here is what happened next..
I am sorry harshk but you only got yourself into this and I simply told some people what did happen, truthfully.

Random game giveaway #4
This seems to happen often to me so I figured I’ll start uploading a video of them from now on..
I haven’t seen the player 76561198133786960 before and for no reason they just blocked me in for minutes and then didn’t save me or anyone else from the hook during rest of the game.
Steam is over run with spam, scam and other link sharing. Users have links on profile name, bio, comments, guides, screenshots and everything else where user content is allowed.
Valve is trying to fix the problem with their link filter which can block out dangerous links and warn about suspicious links, sometimes even about safe links. Only very few trusted links can opened directly without ending up on the warning page before you may open the link.
But it also can cause a lot of headache when they block too much.
For example now for the past week and a half all .pro domains have been blocked across the whole Steam platform. First week or so it was blocked everywhere. Now it’s only blocked in Steam messages, Steam profile page bios (not including group bios) and profile comments. Which means I cannot have the link to my (this) website on my Steam profile bio text and I cannot link anyone to any page on my website via Steam message.
This is not the first time they have blocked a whole top-level domain. Previously nearly all .ru domains were filtered in November-December 2016 because of a promotion and/or discount on .ru domains leading to massive amount of spam, scam etc in Steam platform.
I have not personally seen any .pro domain scamming or spamming in Steam but still, I have to suffer from it too.
At the moment I am “bypassing” the block by using my another domain on .net tld to redirect here in my bio and profile comments.
