Forgive me but I found the topics in the forum about the subject a little cloudy. I purchased TSS on steam, I'd like to know if its possible for me to link it to a caravelnet subscription?
From the sticky topic I understand its not possible to link, I want confirmation if that does apply to steam as well. Thanks

If you purchase a CaravelNet subscription then you can use that with the Steam version for high scores, in-game hold downloads etc. Just generate a CaravelNet key at http://forum.caravelgames.com/member.php?Action=editcaravelnet (after you've purchased the subscription) and enter it into the settings screen in TSS.

What the sticky refers to is converting other store purchases into registered ownership on the Caravel forum, in order to download the game installers from the Downloads page. That used to be supported but isn't now -- you'll need to download the game and any future updates through Steam.

Every version of the game can connect to CaravelNet regardless of which distributor you bought it from, you are free to purchase a subscription. What the sticky thread is referring to is associating your purchase with your forum account which would let you download copies of the game direct from Caravel's servers, which is what you get if you buy from them directly.

EDIT: Oh snap, posted at the same time!

And for linking the account to other purchases so I have access to JtRh and TCB on Drod 5.0/TSS? Can I use steam purchases or only in site? Due to currency issues steam's pricing is a tad more attractive.
Call me a wimp but the unlimited undo ressurected DROD for me.

If you already bought the games on the site here and have them linked to your account, you can get free Steam keys to get them as DLC in the Steam version of Gunthro. (Only Gunthro, though, not TSS. It's not an ideal arrangement, but it's largely because Valve wouldn't allow other options.)

Go to the "Purchases" tab under "Profile" to get them.

Does gunthro already have unlimted undo depth?
I haven't bought any other games on steam so what would be the ideal path to have them on TSS? buying the rest via the caravelgames site?

Gunthro on Steam has been updated to 5.0, so yes, it has unlimited undo.
