Egosoft Forum Steam Integration

We have added a new feature to your forum profile: the option to link your Steam account to your Egosoft account.
This will finally allow all owners of our games to register them here, granting access to any exclusive (current or future) content that requires a valid game registration. Additionally you get to show off a few more of these "tickydisks" as they have become known as.


We've compiled a small FAQ about this feature:

  1. What are the benefits?
    You don't have to worry about CD keys because we can query Steam which of our games you own, which in turn allows us to provide additional bonus content that is exclusive to everyone with a specific game registration.
    No more arguments about who does or doesn't own the game they are talking about.
    Show off your collection of Egosoft games on Steam via your public forum profile. Now including X Rebirth, X Beyond the Frontier and X-Tension.

  2. How does it work?
    Go to your ForumProfile and scroll down until you see the green "Sign in through Steam" button. Once you click that button you will be taken to the Steam login page. After logging in, you will be taken back to your profile page, with all the Egosoft games that you didn't register previously added to your profile.

  3. Will this feature work even if my Steam profile is set to private?
    Yes, the very specific information we query about our games on your account does not require you to set your profile to public and can only be accessed by us.

  4. I bought a new Egosoft game on Steam, why doesn't it show up in my profile?
    We don't query the Steam database without an action from you, so if you want your list of owned Egosoft games to be updated, please go to your ForumProfile and click the blue "Update via Steam" button.

  5. Will people be able to see my Steam user or account name?
    No, all anyone will be able to see is the games you have registered with your account.

  6. Will Egosoft have access to my Steam login information?
    No, we cannot access your Steam account name or any other personal information.

  7. Does that mean I can log into the Egosoft forum using my Steam login information?
    No, you still need your Egosoft forum username and password to log in here. The integration is purely for making registering owned Egosoft Steam games easy.

  8. Will Egosoft have access to my payment information saved with Steam?
    No, we cannot access your Steam payment information.

  9. Will Egosoft be able to know all the games I have on my account?
    No, we can only query which games you own that are actually published by us through Steam.

  10. I don't want my Steam account to be linked to my forum profile anymore, how can I disable this?
    Just go to your ForumProfile and use the red "Remove link to Steam" button to remove all information that connects your Steam account with your Egosoft account.

Now all we need to be able to do, is select which of our shiny collection of badges we would like displayed beneath our name. Wink

For some, things may get a little crowded.

Now this, is a great thing.
But it would be good if the "ACTIVATED" marks for each game were shown under my profile pic here, on forums.

It's displayed in your profile, once you have the games registered.

They may only be identified for mods/admins but I think it's possible for a mouse-over to have the game name displayed hopefully some day.

Very nice, would also support ability to have the icons in the forum name.

Not sure of the difference between steam-registered & reg-code games :


Definitely got 'x3 terran conflict' in my steam common folder,
maybe I just haven't played it via steam, or something...

It does sound like a nice option.

I've not decided weather I want to use it yet.

If you have already used a key to register a game, then this key has priority over the Steam data. (otherwise you'd have two entries for the same copy of the game, one for your key and one for Steam)

Aside from giving us a nice feeling, does this actually do anything beyond that?

<--------- it still only shows 1 checkmark, right?

All tickydisks of the games you have registered are displayed on your profile page. The other benefits are explained in BurnIt!'s post above.

OK, thanks for the clarification,
mind you by that definition every X game I have, except AP & XR, should be reg-key rather than steam.
