You are not supposed to go to this URL.

Code: Select all

https://www.humblebundle.com/s?key=YOURCDKEY
You are supposed to copy it and replace the YOURCDKEY-part with your actual CD Key. The resulting address is the one you are supposed to type into your browser's address bar.

Are you trying to get help for that?

Maybe you should include a i of actual information then. From what you say it just sounds to me like he's doing something wrong.

At what point does it say that?

Are you replacing the part in capital letters with your own CD Key before going to the URL? It is not a link that you just click on, you need to edit it with your own key.

I have indeed edited the link. No dice. It says no CD key found immediately after loading the modified link.

I bought the CD key through a third party site before activating it with steam, if that helps.

Also to double check, you removed the hyphens from the CD key before entering it?

In that case, it sounds like you possibly got a stolen key.

Can you see your CD Key in Steam, or did you just use the activation key you got from that website? There has been tons of people who bought from G2A who could not get their SPF Key because they didn't get a valid CD Key with their purchase.
To be perfectly honest, I don't think I have ever heard of someone who bought from a third-party store who could access the preorder forum. You'd probably fare best trying to get a refund as soon as possible and hen buying the game from one of the official stores instead.

Oooh drama. I don't think there's a way to see your product key's for most games on steam. Cheers anyway.

For Overgrowth it should work. The only use for it is to get your SPF Key, so it has to work if you have a valid copy of it. If you can't see it, either Steam is acting up or you probably used a key reseller like G2A and managed to get a stolen key.

It doesn't, I've tried to get the view cd key option to appear across multiple machines. I even had my friend who lives in Germany login to my steam account and install the game just to see if the option appeared for him. Just like many other people in this thread. I cannot see any form of key and I do not have access to email associated with the humble bundle account. Steam tells me to fuck off, and humble bundle can't verify my identity. [email protected] just redirects a ticket to wolfire anyways, making my entire situation Shit out of luck.
