Finding your Alpha key on backerkit
« on: February 27, 2017, 02:33:45 PM »
Not sure if it will be like this for everyone, but I never got an email from backerkit with my alpha key (or stating that it was available).

I found mine by logging into backerkit, picking AI War II, and hitting the "downloads" button.  Way down at the bottom of the list were the alpha keys.

Check there if you too didn't get the email.

Thanks for the tip, I've been nervously refreshing my email for the last hour wondering what was wrong! Found my key on the backerkit page too.

Okay, emails should have just gone out now, knock on wood.

THAT said, I'm still about 200 keys short of what I need in the system (my face sure is red), so I'm waiting on Valve for that and then I'll send out more.  If the system says that "your order needs to be locked down" when really it has been, you drew a short straw.  Really sorry about the mess there. :/

Confirming that I just got an email about my keys.

Also, I backed at a level that gave 2 alpha keys, and both are present on my backerkit.  I only really need one for now, so if someone gets denied a key and really wants one quickly (and if Chris is cool with it), I can toss my extra back in the pot to be re-distributed?

Awesome on the emails!

In terms of tossing other people keys, that gets complicated fast.  I'd recommend we just wait it out, because Valve should hopefully be back with me sooner than later.  I don't have direct control over the distribution pool in a very helpful manner, and if people exchange keys its going to be pretty hard to manage them later on.  Obviously the keys belong to you and you're free to do whatever you like with them, but I'm hoping we don't need to do that particular thing -- though your offer is super kind.

My pleasure -- and it's one of those days for both Keith and I, yeah.  I had fantasies of getting a lot more actual code done, but such is life. ;)

Thanks Chris
