Steam Perfection is showing up as being published on CaravelNet, but Steam The Choice isn't. Was a change of some sort made to the hold?

A related issue: Steam Beethro's Teacher is an older version of the hold, so it shows as "(Updated!)" in the hold selection menu and, of course, aren't shown as published on CNet. You can't actually update it by downloading either.

I'm having trouble importing the Official Holds into The Second Sky on Steam. I have all of the DLC activated on CN and have added the Steam keys, but I can't get them installed through Hold Import or from Steam.

You can only install them as DLC for GatEB, not TSS.

I currently have a player file with progress over lots of different holds. If I load it into GatEB and TSS on steam and make progress in each, will the player file stay split forever, or I can import them both to restore them?

If you start by importing the same .player file into both games, both profiles will keep the same internal ID and you'll be able to merge things later (e.g. back to the standalone TSS, or into a DROD 6 engine).

You only need to worry about a permanent split if you create a brand new profile at some point. In that case, the new profile would get assigned a different internal ID, even if you used the same name.

Just throwing this out there again... Beethro's Teacher and Complex Complex are both showing 'Updated!' in the Locations menu on GatEB Steam and saying they're not published on CaravelNet.

Hmmmm....

I currently own the holds The Choice and Flood Warning, so that would be half of two different DLC packs. Is there some way of getting this on Steam? Or one of them, at least.

Um... Before I buy TSS, is that possible when I already have Gunthro on Steam? They both run on the same DROD 5.0 engine, and I fear I might break both of them by trying to download the same game twice...

If I just ran Gunthro, for instance, but played TSS through it, implying I had TSS on Steam, would that unlock the achievements for TSS, given they're the same game? Or would I have to open the "TSS" game and only then would it properly award my achievements for the challenges I completed?

You can't import TSS into Gunthro on Steam. If you want to play TSS on Steam it comes as a separate app.

Anyone else having trouble with downloading holds through the game on Steam and Linux x64? The download completes, but the hold still appears as "not downloaded" in-game.

I am not on the official team but they stated elsewhere if you buy the other half of a DLC set from Caravel then you can get a Steam key, but you can't combine Smitemaster Selections to make a Steam DLC when they are out of different sets.

Not properly getting Flood Warning after completion of Gunthro still seems to be an issue.

I'm a little puzzled; there's no "unlocking" going on. Flood Warning was a Smitemaster Selection bonus hold that came with a purchase of Gunthro on the Caravel Site. (Is it still? The free deal only came from purchase on the site; gog.com or Steam doesn't have it as a bonus.)

If you did purchase from Caravel, the hold should be in your locations. You can play it before even touching Gunthro, the two have no relation.

With regard to Flood Warning, I bought GatEB on IGS with a Steam (and Deesura) key. In my game wallet as 'Extras' I have Deadly Music of Death 1 & 2 and Flood Warning. I can download these externally, but would prefer to do it via my Steam version. There are no Steam keys for these 'Extras', but they are DLC on Steam I believe.
Any advice please?

As I recall the official word is now 'no'? There's a sticky on the matter.
