    I think it is already ready, from what they wrote on the matrix forum; did you try to run the matrix auto-updater?

  • I have redeemed the Steam key via Slitherine, but should I install the game from Steam and uninstall the previous, non-Steam version?

    Will I lose all my settings, mods, high scores, etc. if I do that?

    Ultimately what is the point of using the Steam as opposed to the Matrix version?

  • No the two can be on the PC at the same time; they share the same directory in documents\SOWWL where're the settings in sowwl.ini (make a backup of this in any case just to be sure).

    You can use the steam version if you want use some of steam overlay functionalities.

  • Yes, it remains available otherwise they would have warned the people in the redeem key post.

  • Hi all

    I see the game is -10% on steam but full price on matrix site.
    I prefer to install the game as I did with my other SoW titles (so not Steam), keys being registered/retrievable on the matrix site.

    My questions:
    1. Is it normal the game is full price on Matrix and -10% on steam?
    2. From the above posts I know you can redeem a steam key if you have the NSD/matrix-original version. What about the other way around? Can I redeem a matrix key and store it on the matrix site, if i would buy the steam version?

    Thanks

    Thanks for this feedback. Would be great if a dev could confirm.

    We know just as much as you do. Perhaps ask on the Matrix site.

  • Thanks will do. Already have a ticket opened there but their replies are not very "customer centric".
