I purchased Face Noir some time ago, from the Phoenix Online Store. Today I received notification that this game was now available on Steam and I was sent a Key for the game.

I don't know what this means.

It means that if you want to use the steam version you can. Some people like Steam because the games are all kept together in a library for you.

I was sent a "Steam Key" also - although I wasn't expecting to have to play the game via Steam woozy

Anyway, I logged in to Steam but can't see where I'm supposed to go with my "Key" to start the download.
I can only find a place to buy the game.

Does anyone know where this secret "Key" place is ?? wink

Cheers.

Mad, there is a 'Games' menu in the upper row when you launch Steam client. You have installed Steam client, right?
So, you press 'Games' and see 'Activate through Steam..." (or something like that in English) - that's where the key goes.

Mad,

- When you log in at Steam, you will see your personal steam page.
- At top left in small letters are: steam, view, friends, games, help.
- Click on "games" to see a pull down menu.
- Select "activate a product on steam".
- See a separate frame. Follow the directions there. luck

I also received a Steam Key for Face Noir from Phoenix Online, but I already played the game, so I won't bother.
BTW, to use your Steam Key after you have logged in to STEAM,Click on the "STORE" tab. At the bottom left of the Steam window, there is a place that says:"Add a game". Click on THAT and you will get an option to enter your KEY for Face Noir. Then you can install the game on STEAM. I have done that with "The Raven", and it worked without any trouble at all. I hope this info helps those who are intending to "put" Face Noir onto Steam.
Happy gaming!
Sandy

Thanks very much, MaG thumbsup

I was trying to activate the game on-line at the Steam Website instead of via the Steam facility installed on my computer !!
[Which shows how often I ever use Steam lol]

Anyway, I have the game downloaded and ready to go now rolleyes

[Thank you also, Sanford and Iurii grin]

EDIT :
I played a very tiny amount just to see what things were like and it appears that the game "auto created" a save when I quit.
I certainly didn't create one !!
And I don't want one until I start to play the game fully.
However, although I've looked in all the likely places, I can't find where the save is stored.
Can anyone please tell me ??

Hi MaG smile

2ND EDIT :

Well I give up !!
I've just spent an absolute age registering with "Steam Support" only to find that my question is seemingly not one of those that are available to be asked !!
I HATE sites that are so pedantic frown

EDIT :

I've just gone back into the game and made a save, so now there are two saves showing - the auto save from before and the save I just made. And BOTH now work.

However I can't find the location of EITHER on my computer woozy

I think I will have to contact Steam to find out where they are but thank you very much for trying to help yes

Cheers.

Thank you for that.
However I had already looked there before I posted my query and there aren't any saves for Face Noir.

I quickly went back into the game, just now, and can see where the save is showing but if I click on it to "load" nothing happens.

So, later today, when I have more time, I'll go back into the again and this time make a save myself and see what happens with that.

Cheers.

Mad thanks
