Steam Keys - How To Claim!

116 posts in this topic

OK - anyone who purchased the game before our Steam Early Access launch can now grab their Steam keys. There are two methods of doing this, depending on whether or not you have activated your game on Desura.

If you have activated your game on Desura:

1) Go to https://secure.desura.com/cart/cdkeys

2) Log into your Desura account

3) Click the "Request Key" button next to Xenonauts

4) Load Steam and go to Games > Activate A Product On Steam in the topbar

5) Copy the key into Steam

The above steps are also viewable in picture form here: http://www.xenonauts.com/images/claimguide.jpg

If you have not activated your key on Desura, or have additional non-claimed keys (usually people who have bought the game but never tried to play it before!):

1) Go to https://www.humblebundle.com/store/keyresender

2) Type in your email address linked with Xenonauts. This may not be your main email address - it may be the email linked to the Paypal account you bought it with, or the email linked to your Desura / Kickstarter account. If there are several possibilities, try them all.

3) You will receive an email in that inbox with a copy of your Humble Store download link. Click the link.

4) Look at the "Xenonauts" Steam Key section on the landing page, and click the button.

5) Load Steam and go to Games > Activate A Product On Steam in the topbar

6) Copy the key into Steam

Those two methods should account for anyone who has previously purchased the game. In the event that neither work, please email me at chris@xenonauts.com.

Also, both Desura and the Humble Store offer a DRM-free download of the game, in case anyone really detests Steam.

Got my key. Hopefully this means I never have to download anything off Desura's site again.

This is great!

Yeah, this is fantastic, once I've checked the Steam version's working I think I'll be saying goodbye to Desura for good.

Chris:

Steam version says V18 Stable. That is V18,51 HF3, right?

About the potentially unstable develepoment versions, how will I be able to get them from Steam? Do I have to register somewhere?
