GTB, Western front, Gamersgate, Steam


#1

Hi,
Some weeks ago I bought by Steam a copy of Gratuitous Tank Battles.
I just bought from Gamersgate Gratuitous Tank Battles The Western Front Expansion.
At the positech website I found a page where you can have the steam key of the product if you insert the product key.
I guessed that I will be able to get a Steam key for the add on, but I was wrong
I just downloaded Gratuitous Tank Battles The Western Front Expansion but I didn’t find any product key there or on the purchase order mail I received.
I opened a ticket with Gamergate but they replied that "The GG versions of this product is DRM free and do not have , or need, serials."
Can you be of some help?

Many Thanks!

Greetings HypercubeBorg

From what I understand, you would like to add the western front to your Steam Version of GTB.
If that is the case, in theory - if you install the DLC to where the Steam stores GTB you will then have access to the new content.

Hi,
I just installed Western front on the directory where GTB is ( somethink like \steamapp\gratuiotous…) but when I opened GTB I dind’t find the add on.
Have I to update some files elsewhere?

Many thanks!

Hmm, if it has not detected it then I would say that the directory is not quite correct.
Unfortunately I do not have the game on Steam so my advice is somewhat uncertain.

Based on my knowledge of GSB, GTB and steam in theory there should be a GTB\Contents\Resources\ folder ?
If you place it in there it might detect it.

Hopefully someone that has Steam, GTB and the DLC can give some more specific instructions.

Hi,
I realised what went wrong with the installation: the western front installer created a new Gratuitous Tank Battle directory inside the existing one created during the steam installation.
I just reinstalled Wester Front making sure that the new file would be written in the existing directory and this time it works!

Many thanks anyway!
