Well, first you need to gain access to the Overgrowth Secret Preorder Forum. Considering you're a pirate, I must inform you that you cannot do that.

relax, remember you don't need to be a member of the spf to have overgrowth anymore, you can have it straight from the humble bundle page. sadly I haven't kept up to date with helpy type stuff but you should be able to shoot wolfire an email and ask for them to resend your page or whatnot, just make sure you use the email you used to buy it.

I told him to gain access to the SPF because he asked this question in the wrong place. You don't ask for help with this sort of issue outside the SPF. If you can't get to the SPF, you don't need help with this issue, because you're a pirate.

Can you explain this. Because you don't have to have registered SPF forum account to download Overgrowth, because all the download links are in Humble Bundle website. Once you have account in there, you don't need access to the SPF when you don't want to have all the mods and maps.

Agreed.
Although it does seem strange that he says he can't find his download link anywhere.

Check the place you got it from the first time, Vaxus.

Well, yes. The issue is that this is not the Overgrowth forum. This is an Overgrowth related question. As with all other games, you should ask questions about Overgrowth in its forum. It doesn't take a lot of work to get in to the correct forum, assuming you have Overgrowth. And if you are simply unable to get to the SPF, then what does that tell us? That tells us we've got a pirate. Understand?

right but he doesn't necessarily have an account on the forums as he could have bought and downloaded overgrowth legally without ever making a forum account, he might have forgotten to bookmark his page or deleted the email that linked to it or any number of things. the point is that this is a perfectly acceptable place for him to ask for help, he might just need to set up his account to be linked to his preorder, or he might be a pirate. This kind of "anyone without a preorder tag is a pirate" attitude paints a rather negative portrait of the wolfire community, especially since they no longer need to have a forum account to have legally obtained the game.

That tells us that the person asking the question is confused, doesn't know how things work in this forum, and needs help. What we should do is HELP. Since he or she has trouble downloading, he or she might not have the original e-mail left, in which case marking the forum account as a preorder-account is going to be quite difficult... of course, they don't know that they should do that, unless someone tells them that.

see, there you have it, I'm sorry that we argued over piracy and whatnot instead of being a helpful friendly community, did you try what I suggested in my first reply? emailing [email protected]?
Edit: or you can wait for endoperez to give you actual useful information that took up more of his time than I was willing to spend! that works too!

You've had to wait for quite a while already (sorry about that), and waiting for Wolfire's answer would have you waiting for a while longer... I don't know if this will work for you, but it's worth a try. Perhaps you can get it working before

If you go here and log in using your e-mail, or create a new account using your e-mail, the system should recognize it. Use the same e-mail you used when buying Overgrowth. Overgrowth should either appear there, or show up in the "Claim Past Purchases" thing at the very top. If Overgrowth shows up, you can download it.
https://www.humblebundle.com/home

Here's how you register your account as a preorderer; if this works, you can download it from the forums:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16422


Hopefully that works, or if it doesn't, you get an answer from the developers soon.

You can use the SUMLauncher, the A200 thread in the SPF or your Humble Store page to download the latest version. SUMlauncher is the easiest way to do it.
As pretty much everyone has told you already, you should verify your account to gain access to the SPF. People can only offer you very limited help outside.

Yes, you may save some download time, when you gain access to the secret preorder forum and download there SUM launcher. With this tool you can easily update your OG from a194 to a200.
I can't really say the download time differences between using SUM launcher as a updater or downloading the full game again.
Either way you have to have access to preorder forum. There is one more way to download the full game outside of this forum using humblebundle.com's account, but you can only download there full game installer.
