It turns out that many of my Steam games have been retired so I can't get any working trainers for them. To avoid this in the future, is there a way of telling the game version number of a game on Steam BEFORE I buy it?

Thanks!

Just a thought, but you could always contact Steam support before each purchase. IMO I'd rather have CH focused strictly on new and updated trainers rather than keeping pace with thousands of version numbers for dated games. In fact, this would be something that would be much simpler for Steam to produce rather than CH. This is a request better suited for Steam (again, IMO).

All you need is to check our forum and use your brain. Most of the time Chris posts in a thread when the game is retired and this happens when the trainer needs an update.

Or if you consider to buy a game which is released in the 90's you're mostly out of luck.

I highly doubt Valve tells you the version number, they're just the reseller/middleman of the game. You can use google for tags like "GAME changelog" or "GAME patch" which leads you to some useful sites when it comes to the version number.

Some games don't even have a version number (released to public). My advice is to check the forum and look around what you can find on your own. Yeah i know it sounds pretty much simple but trust me, it's the best choice of all to open your eyes before buying a game. It takes about 1-2 minutes but it can save up to 50$, I think it's worth it.
