Pro tip: If your My Documents folder (Or OS equivalent) is in your friendly cloud storage (Google/One Drive, Dropbox etc) like it hopefully should be, you can usually log into the web interface of that cloud service and restore removed/lost files.

If you don't use such a service, then the "Pro Tip" becomes: Synchronise your home folder with a cloud service. They'll handle offsite backups of your files. They all offer a free tier of a few GB, more than enough for most people's basic personal documents.

Are the nonsteam executables updated as well? I'm playing a AP modded game on alternate folder, I'll be glad to take advantage of the updates in my current playthrough too.

Yes, the patch for non-Steam X3TC installations and the NoSteam EXE for X3AP should both be available on the Downloads page. :)

Thanks! Just downloaded! :)

EDIT: After the TC patch installation and overwriting x3ap.exe the AP launcher tells me I've got an incorrect version of the exe. My savegame was loaded without any errors though... Should I tweak something else?

EDIT2: Never mind, got infos from the other sticky post, copied all the new \addon files from my updated steam installation and error dialog is gone. :)

Make sure that both games, X3TC and X3AP, are updated by Steam. Additionally, if you use the NoSteam.exe make to sure to download the updated version from here.

Yup, atm there's no specific AP patch for nonsteam installations in download section, guessed the TC offline patch could update AP files too but it didn't.
There are some changes in \addon folder too so I've fixed it as per my EDIT2 in my previous post.

Thanks again.

Well my great new X3 AP w/Terran War Pack got delivered today.
(Note that pretty black oval that checkmark is in :D )

But before I even TRY to load it up I foresee an issue (Or is it)

The shipped version is 2.0. The No Steam executable is 3.3?

Is going to work? No my desktop is without internet connection.
Even if it wasn't Steam and I have some professional issues.
I'd chop off my arm before logging in with them.
Any way to upgrade my copy to UNSTEAM-O-FY it?

Any disc version of the Terran War pack is bound to Steam, and thus requires Steam to be installed and updated. Once the game is installed using Steam (Steam always automatically installs the latest version), you can copy the whole X3 Terran Conflict Steam folder (including the X3AP "addon" folder) elsewhere (for example by using a USB stick from your computer with internet access to the one without) and run the game(s) by using the NoSteam.exe for X3AP or the X3TC.exe from the latest X3TC retail patch for X3TC, which you can find in our downloads section.
