Humble Bundle's Beat the average

  • Humble Bundle's Beat the average thomarjos

    Does anybody know about the two locks on a single bundle? I am talking about the green lock price and the blue lock price. For eg, in the last Humble Weekly Sega sale, the Total War Shogun 2 was only given to those who donate more than $16. Will that game still be available to obtain after the bundle period by boosting the amount? I have already beat the average of $6 and got 11 games. But I really wanted Shogun 2.

    EDIT:

    This is the response I got from Humble Bundle Customer support. I think they should know more about the Humble Bundle

     So does this mean that even if I add $10 to Increase The Amount, and reach $16, I won't get Shogun 2. Also, I would like to know if this is the same for all items shown with a Blue Padlock icon.

    Hi Martin,
    This is correct. Once the bundle is over the offer has then since expired. This includes any order adders.
    Any game in a bundle with a padlock beside the title will be marked as either a Beat the Average, Beat the $6 or $15. As long as purchases made at or exceeding these levels, or have had enough added to the existing order during the designated Bundle sale time will receive any games that are “locked”.
    Thank you!

  • I got Shank 2 through Humble Bundle, and the performance is pretty awful. Have any patches been released? Shank 1 had a similar problem that was helped by a patch posted on Icculus (but not shown on the main HB site, or the support site - or anywhere else, AFAIK). Yes, I'm on integrated graphics, and yes, I know that what goes for Shank 1 does not necessarily go for Shank 2, but still ... Patch did help for 1, so I'm hopeful.

  • I purchased the humble indie bundle 2, downloaded braid, and installed it. Since the bundle is now available on Steam, I am now downloading the Steam version for achievements etc. Will the steam version use the same save as the non-Steam version?

Not a huge issue for the Humble Indie games, being quite small in size, but it would be handy for something like UT3 if I activated my key on Steam.

  • I downloaded the Humble Indie Bundle version of SSAS onto my mac (10.8.4), and every time I try to start the game I get the error ""sworandsworcery" is damaged and can't be opened". I have tried re-downloading it multiple times, but that didn't work. There is no "capy" directory in my library, so I can't edit the config.txt. I'd really like to know whats up. Should I email Humble Bundle? I have version 1.02 of SSAS.
