register games purchased on Steam

Post by Junshi » Mon Dec 11, 2017 11:06 pm

Hello all,

Can someone help me register my games with Sltherine that I purchased on steam? When you get to the register screen on Slitherine's website they require a product key, which does not come with a steam purchase.

sorry there is no way to register a key which comes from steam on the site, but works the other way around, if you buy from the site, and the game is released now or at a future date, you also get a steam key to use with your purchase, doesn't work with GOG games either i'm sorry to say

I guess I will be buying all my games here from now on just because of that reason. Thanks for the help Zak.

I have the reverse issue. I purchased on Slitherine and installed it awhile ago. Now, I want to see what it was like on Steam. I have the Key. Before I screw something up I wanted to check.
Will Steam install a new version of War in the West-Grigsby? Will it mess up anything with my existing installation if I don't take precautions? Will I still be able to play my offline version that was originally installed before Steam?
I am really new to this online stuff so please use small words if possible :-)
Thanks for the help

welcome to the forum, and the answer is No,
Will it mess up anything with my existing installation
it installed inside of a steam installer, so is a totally different package and place than the site version, i have both installed, as site one i use for beta game installs, and steam for me is just the released full version etc
Will Steam install a new version of War in the West-Grigsby?
Yes
