Default Congratulations!

Congratulations on finally (finally!) getting on Steam. Those Greenlight folks don't know what they've missing out on.

Question: is the Steam version vanilla Drox Operative only? Will Steam users need to wait for the Invasion of the Ancients expansion?

Just the vanilla version so far. The IotA expansion will come later. I just hope the expansion doesn't have to go through the Greenlight process too. <sigh>

A lot of people on the Steam forums are asking about the expansion. Many of them seem to be hesitant to buy without knowing whether the expansion will be coming. Some official word on the matter would go a long way to reassuring them.

Shadow just addressed this subject in the Steam forums where he said:

We have an app id for the expansion now, so I don't think it will take too long to get it on Steam (hopefully within a couple weeks).

If you already bought the expansion from us, you should be able to get it to work on the Steam version doing something like this:
  • 1) Install the Drox through Steam
  • 2) Install the expansion, but make sure the installer points to the correct directory wherever Steam puts it on your system. For me that's C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Drox Operative
  • 3) Have Steam verify the Drox files so it will revert back to the Steam version of the exe (this isn't absolutely necessary, but the achievements won't show up on Steam without doing this).

I haven't posted here for ages, but just thought I would drop by to congratulate Soldak on getting the game onto Steam. Hopefully this leads to a lot of exposure and sales.

Congrats Soldak. Hopefully this is happening early enough in Drox's life that the revenue boost should be significant.

EDIT: Speaking of which, you're currently in the top 50 on Steam! Yay!
