I see it's up on Steam, now.  Is it too early to start badgering about keys?  ;D

Hi all.

Reports come in that the Steam version does not start due to a missing executable.
I can confirm this.

Error message is "Failed to start game (missing executable)"

Ok, odd.  It works on windows for me (and it's the first time I've installed it on steam).  A few questions:

1) How big did the steam client say the download was for you (on the Library->Downloads screen where it had the progress bar, etc) ?
2) How big does your OS say the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Shattered Haven\" (or wherever you have it) folder is?
3) What happens when you try verify-cache on it in steam?

Thanks :)

1) The download screen says 190.3 MB.
2) The Windows Explorer says 192 MB/215 MB in disk.
3) Verify Steam cache says all file successfully validated yet the game does still not start

4) The Shattered Haven directory contains no .exe files whatsoever

Have you restarted Steam lately?  I've had that fix some weird problems before.

Ah, okay. Restarting the steam client triggers another download of roughly 20MB.
After that the game starts just fine!

Are you thinking about perhaps taking AI War or other titles there?

No plans for that at this time. That said, I can't predict the future, so who knows what will happen?

They're cool with how we do content updates, but not with the serial numbers that our other games use.  Which precludes a demo, and the established way we've been doing those games.  So this is a trial run for us with them on future games -- if it goes well we'll probably use the shattered haven model except for existing stuff and new expansions to existing stuff.  So hopefully those would all show up on Gog.com, but we'll see.
