    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?

    Related: If I have the non-Steam version of a game and the Steam version, is it possible to make Steam only redownload changed files? 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 have now redownloaded Braid, and was not only given my old save file, but achievements based on my existing progress.

  • 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.

  • I'm playing DD with a friend. We play "LAN" games (using Evolve), so I'm not logged into my GameSpyId account. I use the Humble version of the game, so I'm not logged into Steam either.

How can I fix this?
