    Greatly appreciated. I'm new to steam and quite baffled by it, so any guide is well welcome

    Ps- Would you happen to know how to send somebody the alpha invitation? Once they go green there will be many to circle around and I imagine I can't be the only one whos got no clue whatsoever

    Thanks pettka, I didn't even notice the PDF in the directory. Added some information from the PDF into the first post.

    This method leaves much to be desired. Before this Steam DRM, we could concurrently run development versions and "stable" versions. This appears to replace the original version because Steam does not have a robust update system because they wish to forcibly ram updates down your throat!
