Thumbs up Great job with Steam releases

I'd just like to leave a quick note to show appreciation for your Steam releases.

I recently picked up the F-5E Tiger II and have been very impressed. Of course, I also have every other module BST has released.

I feel Steam users seem to have quite a bad reputation on these forums, so I am glad you haven't given up on us.

Keep up the great work.

Every module will eventually migrate to Steam as it enters a full release state. Steam doesn't allow multiple betas/alphas.

Steam users don't have a 'reputation', people are encouraged to use standalone for two reasons:

1. Keys bought onED's website cannot be used on Steam, but Steam keys can be used on the standalone version. I.e. you can benefit from sales on both Steam and the website.

2. The developers get a larger percentage of the money, because they don't have to share with Valve.

Which really just means that standalone users can no longer take advantage of Steam sales, unless they wish to maintain two separate installations.
