Now I use steam as a game management app, not for friends or multiplayer, so I disable all friends features, and I really recommend unchecking "Enable the steam overlay while in-game" in "In-Game" section because I have noticed it causing problems with some games, not the ones you mentioned though.


I find Steam overlay often disables itself automatically on games which don't support it (usually pre-2000 or DOS games), but I like to have the overlay for taking screenshots.

Reviving my own Steam thread...I didn't end up liking CKII very much, oh well.

But I've just bought Aggressors: Ancient Rome from Matrix and realized that I don't know how to install it with Steam (CKII was Steam-only). Do I install the Matrix version and then "activate" it on Steam? Do I install a Steam version? If so, am I installing a "non-Steam game" or "activating a Steam game" (two of the options when adding a game). Do I use the standard Matrix serial number to activate it on Steam, or do I need something else?

I've also asked these questions on the Aggressors forum, but I think they're in Europe, where it is late now, so thought I'd try here as well.

If you bought on Steam then install from your Steam library. If Matrix, then install Matrix version and then get Steam key.

If you want to install via Steam, you don't have to install the stand alone version.
Just redeem a Steam key and activate in your Steam account.
Please check this forum post for on how to redeem Steam keys for your games through your Slitherine's Member area:

Then you can download it via Steam:

This is what I did, but when I tried to activate the Steam Key, it tried to install another Steam version. So I uninstalled the Matrix version and installed the Steam version, but it does not work, will not start.
