Can´t link to Steam Account

Postby EuroFighter » 26 Dec 2019, 17:15

Hello everyone,

somehow the account linking process doesnt work for me.
I get this error: "Error You do not own Forged Alliance on Steam or your profile is private. Please set your games list temporarily to public."
I already set my privacy settings to public, including my games list.

Maybe the problem is, that i didn´t bought FA on Steam. I only have it as a retail version.
Is there any solution to this problem or do i have to buy it a second time?

You need a valid copy of FA on steam, which you don't have. Just adding it as a link from steam won't do.
You can use yoir CD key as a code with steam to retrieve an actual copy of the game there.

By the way, at least for the American steam store, Forged Alliance is on sale for $2.59 until Jan 2.

So if you need to buy it again (if you can't find your CD key) this would be the best time to buy
