Its annoying that if you have any of the titles in the pack, you will not get those as xtra copies that you could gift away. Kinda crappy considering you've effectively paid for em..

Yeah it seems a few people have it working. I might get it still since it's so low in price. It's the only one in the pack I don't own so why not complete it .

Wow. How sucky. I guess it's because it's an ultra special offer and people might abuse it, but still if you did the same in a retail store you could do what you wanted with the spare.

I hope Valve changed their minds and allow it, or perhaps it was a decision Codemasters made...

Anyone having trouble getting Dirt 2 to run?

I bought that pack as a gift for my uncle, all the games install fine. Dirt 2 presents the worst error of all time when you launch it though. It's a blank error message with a red X symbol and an ok button. You click ok and it closes.

specs:
XP Home
Intel 3.46ghz Celeron D
2GB ram
Geforce 7900GS 256mb
Realtek onboard audio

Sound and video drivers are newest available. Also all Windows Update patches are installed.

Same thing happened to me when I bought the unreal pack... Already owned UT3 in steam, but i didn't get an extra copy. A bit disappointing, but no big deal.

Couldn't you avoid it by having two steam accounts, one for sale/weekend deals only and another one for single purchases?

As mentioned it's upto the publisher. Valve will often let you have the spare to gift. So will a few others during pre purchase offers, but the majority wont let you do this, especially during weekend offers.
