Question about Steam


Recommended Posts

Wags said in his most recent update (2nd August 2013):

 

"We do not believe it is possible to move DCS products purchased outside of Steam into Steam."

 

But Squad (the creators of Kerbal Space Program) managed to do this, and I am certainly not willing to pay just to get steam integration.

 

Also if they are going to be two different products then how do they expect the multiplayer to work? People that buy the game from Steam will not be able to play on the dedicated servers for the standalone version unless they make a new server just just so that people with Steam can play, and they still can not play with the standalone users.

 

Unless we can all move to Steam for FREE then I (personally) think that it is a not very well thought out plan. :helpsmilie:

Multiplayer works, its still the same game version, its just a difference of how you buy the game and the DRM the game has.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

As far as Multiplayer goes, the two are compatible, both ways. That shouldnt be an issue. Steam and Normal users will be able to play together.

Squad did it a different way. Once you requested a transfer from a standalone to steam, they deleted the game from your store page and gave it to you in steam. You essentially traded to get this to work.

 

Edit: Also I prefer it outside of steam. I tried adding DCS World as a non steam game before and my frame rates dropped by about 10. I don't see the reason to add it back just so my steam friends can see me playing it at that cost.

I've been told by Wags now that they are investigating being able to do this.

 

Wait, what? I also transferred kerbal, Pcars, and i will do the same with project zomboid. What's the exact reason i won't be able to transfer dcs world, a10c, and fc3 on steam?

I originally bought DCS A-10c though Steam last year. and moved to DCS World. Since I have since purchased all of the DCS modules I would not like to buy them again just to have them run through steam with the rest of my games.
