Questions about linking Steam account, GOG and the mystery of whether I did actually buy Rebirth (I did!) - Resolved

Post by Alee Enn » Tue, 2. Oct 18, 10:49

So I linked my Steam account with the forum, and I have a lot of the X games linked

But no Rebirth. I remember playing it (only a little, but I still played it) which means I must have bought it.
I looked on Steam, nope, no Rebirth on Steam, and it wasn't on my hard drive anywhere.
So I looked at my GOG account, and yep, it's there. I have my GOG account and Steam linked, but it doesn't seem to link Rebirth ... for some reason.
Colour me sad :(

So does this mean I have to buy it again on Steam to get this forum to recognise I bought it?

(Edit: image is horrible because I resized it to 640 wide, as per this forum's rules. Here is a link to the full size image https://i.imgur.com/Y8gM3S8.jpg )

I do not think Egosoft forums support that feature.

You can look up your cd key on gog and link that key to your forum profile.
Reveal your key as shown in the image and paste it into the field in your profile settings. (The one below your registered games in your screenshot)

I was referring to a feature between Steam & GOG ... this forum does, however, allow you to register your Steam & GOG X series games.
