How to access the Overgrowth - Secret Preorder Forum

Postby Anton » Mon Aug 27, 2012 11:27 am

Steam Users

For people who bought it from steam:

1.) Create a humblebundle account, and verify it.
2.) Go to Steam.
3.) Go to your library, click overgrowth, and select "CD Key" on the right side of the page.
4.) Copy the code and go to the following site:
Code: Select all
https://www.humblebundle.com/s?key=YOURCDKEY

NOTE: if your key has SPACES in it, REMOVE them from the code
5.) Click the claim page button.
6.) Copy the new code displayed
7.) Go to http://www.wolfire.com/spf and put the code in.

and the official post from which I found this information. http://blog.wolfire.com/2013/12/Overgro ... w-on-Steam

There you go. Access to the SPF, and non-steam version of the game.

________________________________________________________________________________________

If you have just pre-ordered Overgrowth, and cannot access the Secret Preorder Forum, you need to associate your forum account with your order. If you click on the link in your email, and go to your Humble Bundle page, you will see a link at the top of the screen that looks like this:

Preorder Forum Access Key


Then click on your alpha key like this:

Access Key


On that page, be sure to follow the directions closely. You MUST have an existing forum account before you can authorize it.

Please remember that all Overgrowth related conversations should remain in the Secret Preorder Forum.

If you have an existing Humble Bundle account, you can also get to this link by clicking the "Overgrowth Alpha" link at the bottom of your account page.

If you need your key re-sent to you, go to http://www.wolfire.com/spf and click on the big "Key Resender" link. (This will work, even if you pre-ordered before the Humble Bundle store integration.)

If you are still having issues, please email [email protected] - Including your transaction ID from your payment provider will help to locate your account.


Now with a video!

I've added a video that might help you go through the steps. Can you double check if that helps?

You can contact the dev team by emailing them at [email protected]. If you include your transaction ID (which came with your payment provider) they can help track down your order, and correctly authorize your account.

Did you follow the steps in the video? Once you click on the link from your download page, you will need to enter your forum name "sam12314" (in your case) and then it will authorize you. Once your account is linked, you will see a "preorderer" tag under your name. Like mine ------>

Are you absolutely sure about that?
Watch the video again and follow the steps Anton showed there closely.

If it still does not work after that, contact the team at [email protected] and explain your problem.

You will need to email [email protected] and explain what happened. They will be able to fix the issue for you. Providing your transaction ID (the number that comes from your payment provider when you ordered) will help them locate your purchase easier.

I accidentally deleted the Email and it is not in my Trash folder. I go to HumbleBundle and it says I need the Email, so I feel pretty screwed. I have the game, legit and all. I can send a video if you like. I just want the game updated again, as I want to be able to do more. I have it on my laptop, so it is a little glitchy and extremely laggy, but I DO have the game. I just don't want to rebuy it. Just in case you may believe that I got the game via Crack, I also have Reciever, which came with the game. :?

The email can be resent to you. Here's the link where you can do that:

I bought the game before I made my forum account, does that mean I will technically have to buy the game again to get the key?

No, you get the key when you purchase no matter what. You just will need the key to authorize your forum account.
