I'm just wondering because TSS shows up as a separate game altogether in my list of games, since I entered the code for Steam already.

I assume that's because there were separate successful Greenlight campaigns for both games. Now that I've checked, TSS isn't in the scheduled list for Gunthro DLCs and has its own separate page. We'll have to wait for Mike to explain how it will work.

Huh. Since TCB went live, my GatEB Steam has changed its windowed-not-windowed behavior. Where it used to open on the left side of my screen, it's now opening in the center.

Of course, I'd *prefer* being able to actually move the window myself, but one thing at a time, I suppose.

My Steam version does not minimize when in full screen. This problem seems to be ignored completely, though :?

Just gone through all the TCB Steam achievements. These challenges need fixing:

Not Without Honor in His Own Country (named "Not Without Honour in His Own Country" in Steam achievement)
Light Armor (named "Light Armour" in Steam achievement)

Sorry, are you saying that the game is submitting the achievements as "Not Without Honor in His Own Country" and "Light Armor", so they aren't registering on Steam, or is it just a cosmetic issue?

TSS has been released on Steam! :yay

TSS is a stand-alone title. The local data for GatEB(and DLC) and TSS is kept distinct from each another.

Originally, we wanted to have either (a) one shell for all the games, or (b) playing each of the games separately. Valve didn't support us in either approach after repeated requests, and we have the hybrid approach you see here. :?

Hmm. There are two entrances from the south, i.e. the southwest (where the scroll is), and the south east (through a bunch of breakable walls). Perhaps the achievement requires the southwest entrance? If so, I suggest its text should be more specific.

Huh. What's stopping you from simply adding a TSS depot as DLC for GATEB, though? If you have access to the Steam backend you should just be able to do that without having to ask Valve about it.

Having a problem with the 'Master "King Dugan's Dungeon"' achievement. I assume this means drop the Master Wall. But, I have all other KDD achievements and 100% on the post-mastery level. Still no achievement.

The only thing I can think of that might be a factor is that I conquered all secret rooms before finishing the hold and seeing the ending. Anyone else having a problem with this achievement?

That might be the problem. The achievement is only triggered when the "Hold Mastered!" flashing message pops up in-game.

The other way is to export your profile and reimport it, which will properly register all hold complete and mastery achievements.

Thanks. Exporting my player and reimporting it earned me the achievement. But, this might be something that should be changed if possible.

Are we talking about the same challenge? L4 1N2E has a scroll that says "enter to the south". From (23,29) to (26,31), a series of breakable walls lead to the south.

A bug in The Second Sky, importing a "saves only" player from an earlier installation should trigger the plot-based achievements (e.g. "reached chapter 3" and so forth). Currently it doesn't.

They don't in GatEB Steam either. Only hold complete and master achievements is unlocked by this way.

Great question, and the right one to ask. An app is limited to 10 DLC slots, and Valve needs to grant exceptions to this. We've filled all our DLC slots on Gunthro. I've repeatedly asked Valve to give us more slots, and they have completely ignored me.

Currently you can vote on steam for various awards.

I think "Test of Time" is a very fitting award for DROD. But we should strategize which game we should vote on. I first voted for Gunthro because it's seen as the friendliest entry to Drod right now.
But I'm also pretty much torn on KDD. It's a true classic in every sense of the word and more fitting.

For now I've voted for KDD. If anyone has input on this, I'll watch the thread and change accordingly.

If DROD gets any mention in something mainstream I'll be very happy. :w00t

We also have "Just 5 More Minutes" and "I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award". Both also very fitting. :)

I just saw the SMS's as DLC in Gunthro available for purchase on November 30th. Will people who purchased these directly through Caravel get free Steam keys to unlock these as well? That would be awesome.

Thanks for asking about SmS holds and GOG keys!

First, about SmS issues. We are setting up keys for SmS holds purchased on the Caravel Games site and registered to a user account on the Caravel Forum. In order to get a Steam key for a pair of SmS expansions, you will need to own all of its original content on the Caravel Forum.

For instance, SmS is for "Perfection" and "The Choice". If you have registered both SmS issues on the Caravel Forum that contain this content, a Steam key for this pack will unlock in your Caravel Forum user account.

When SmS DLC is released here on Steam, are may choose either to purchase it here, or pick up any missing holds on the Caravel Forum, then get a Steam key for the two-pack there.

We'll also have a bundle come online once all six SmS DLC packs are released here.

I noticed that too, and I've been torn under which category to put it for, but I think Test of Time is the best category for DROD. I've never, ever seen even any game that was a puzzle game like DROD, but maybe I've just never heard of them because they're all so unknown too. Despite that though, I'll probably still play DROD in many years, even if it won't be a continuous gaming experience; taking breaks here and there, etc. That's why I think Test of Time is the best category, I'll always go back to it sooner or later.

As for which game in the series, it's frankly hard to tell, because it's really been the same engine just reused, improved, with more elements added, unlike for example Mario games where the format changes between 2D and 3D. I think The Second Sky would be a good nomination despite being the most recent game, because it's, and correct me if I'm wrong, the "definitive DROD version", paraphrased from what I remember reading somewhere in a post, and the version we'll most likely play for quite a long time.

Edit: The Second Sky would also be a good contender for "Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!" award, but I've already got a good amount of games that all fit under that category already and ultimately went for something else.

We have Steam keys set up for that. It looks like that one isn't visible on the Purchases tab either. I'll ask Matt to add that one.
