So now not only is my key assigned to someone elses account, but I can't access the secret preorder forum after pre-ordering either.

If there's anything you moderators/admins can to do be of assistance in rectifying this problem It'd be greatly appreciated.


You need to email [email protected] and explain what happened. You should also supply your transaction ID from your purchase provider, so they can easily locate your account. They will be able to help you resolve the issue.

I don't really know what to tell you, but you're obviously a preorderer, so you can download the newest version of Overgrowth from here.

Seems like the View CD Key feature's broken at the moment. I don't have a 'View CD Key' option myself at the moment, so that probably explains the above complaints ^.

@Shortstacks + herpgurp: Once it's fixed, hopefully soon, you should be able to right click Overgrowth in your Steam Library and click 'View CD Key'. Then copy the link that you should get from there into your web browser.(you might have to add the 'https://www.humblebundle.com/' prefix before the key yourself, not sure yet)
Then it should be pretty straightforward from there, until you've got OG activated on Humble Bundle. Then just follow the instructions in this thread's OP to get SPF access.

Hey Guys,

Once the CD Key issue is resolved, I'll update the main post and walk Steam purchases through accessing the SPF, as well as SUMLauncher updates.

Not to be critical of hard working devs whose game I enjoy, but whats the point of locking out your modding forums? All the excitement the first 15 minutes of playing overgrowth (after purchasing via steam early access) I had pretty much crashed upon discovering I can't get to the relevant modding forums currently. Ive spent as much time looking for a solution as I've spent playing the game. Its a very good game too. The only reason I can think of is the devs had a problem with piracy but this can't be a worthwhile solution. Mods are kind of a big part of the game's appeal since its, you know, not finished. Also. They are mods. user generated content locked by the dev? lol. >>all preorders are available for transfer to steam, so steam workshop, problem solved. // :?:

Creating one more hoop for your community to jump through to get involved in your game seems like poor planning. Even once steam access to spf is fixed, how many people are going to come here and register, get annoyed that they dont have access, find a forum, link their accounts, etc, just to look at a modding forum.

anyways, love your game. solid and original take on the genre.

You assume that everyone wants to use Steam though. I personally don't like it, so should I be forced to use Steam to access community content? How is that any better?

The devs don't actually force people to put the user content in the SPF, but the community has chosen to post it there, to try and keep the mods for people who have helped support the game.

I understand the frustration of not having access to the modding section though, and I'm hoping Steam resolves their issues soon, so that we can get access for everyone. As part of the development team for SUMLauncher (which is "the main" way people install mods currently), I can tell you we've been trying to figure out the best way to make modding available to Steam and stand-alone versions of the game. We're already compatible with Steam versions, but need that CD key to make our program work. Once we've resolved that, I think it could be a pretty simple thing to get it working in Steam Workshop…

I only found out after purchasing it on steam that I couldt't access the SUMLauncher, so was kind of bummed out and now wish I had bought it of the original website, probably should have done some reading about it before I just went and bought it I guess.. oh well, will just have to wait until it has been worked out. :D
Love the game anyways!
