    Will I be able to download from Steam if I bought the game from Lock 'n Load Publishing?

    Hello,

    was looking forward to play the Command Ops 2 game via Steam, but I ran into problems.

    Tried to install the Command Ops 2 (core engine) from Steam but the only files downloaded are files in:

    ..\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Command Ops 2\_CommonRedist\DotNet\4.5.1
    ..\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Command Ops 2\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2013

    After install is done I launch the game within Steam and I get the menu where I select 'Play Command Ops 2' and click 'Play'
    Then I get an error popup 'Steam - Error' Failed to start game (missing executable).

    I've tried to:
    Uninstall and re-install the game within Steam - No change
    Used the Verify Integrity Of Game Files... (Right click game->Properties->Local files)

    I could post a support request to Steam (available via the above mentioned error popup, but I post here first

    Br,
    Tomas

    Actually, the actual release is 10PM PST, which is 5AM AEST, and somthing like 3PM in Europe. So it's still a few hours away.

    Steam's email announcing the release, though got into my inbox at 10PM AEST on the dot.

    Tomas, thanks for posting here. We tested the installers pretty thoroughly over the last few weeks. I'm downloading the latest build yet again from the Steam Store. Once it finishes I'll check it out and see what's gone wrong. Stay tuned.

    Tomas,

    I just installed from Steam. It installed all the right files and runs fine on my Win 7 machine here.

    The two files you referred to above:
    ..\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Command Ops 2\_CommonRedist\DotNet\4.5.1
    ..\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Command Ops 2\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2013
    should be in the _CommonRedist directory, which is one of 14 sub directories. There should be a lot more other files in your Command Ops 2 directory. Here's a screen dump of what I have:
    CO2 Steam Install directory listing.jpg

    Can you please check your steamapps\common\Command Ops 2 directory for me and confirm they are not there. If they are not there can you please do a search on your system for CmdOps.exe and if you find it, tell me where its been put.

    One other question. Do you already have Cmd ops installed from Lock N Load?

    It's either:
    - As Miquel pointed out, CO is not really live yet, Dave might have access to the content being an app admin, but regular folks would not be able to download it till it's really live. However, I would expect Steam to handle this kind of situation (by disallowing any downloads/purchases or something).
    - Or some step(s) were missing during the publishing (i.e. making test build available to public was not done in a way it is supposed to be).
    I'll also be looking into it.

    If you go to the Steam page:

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/521800

    and you click on "view manual" to download the manual, you get a PDF of the manual with just 67 pages. The full manual should be available there. Please, check it !

    Hi Dave,
    Still only the standard Steam Depots (VC 2013 Redist & .NET 4.5.1 Redist)
    https://steamdb.info/app/521800/depots/

    No CmdOps.exe on my PC (Win10) after installation via Steam
    No, not currently.

    I've also tried to connect to different download regions:

    Sweden
    US - New York
    Australia - SA

    I've cleared the download cache

    Hi,

    the mounted depots part of the appmanifest_521800.acf - per 15:10:00 UTC +1

    "MountedDepots"
    {
    "228985" "5758075142805954616"
    "229004" "3575109949731994142"
    }

    the mounted depots part of the appmanifest_521800.acf - per 15:13:00 UTC +1

    "MountedDepots"
    {
    "228985" "5758075142805954616"
    "229004" "3575109949731994142"
    "521801" "4336161137454458416"
    }

    And voila, now it works fine!

    BR

    Seems like some issues with the licensing still persist, though. We should be able to fix these within next few hours.

    There should be nothing different except that it is on Steam now.
