The process of redeeming a Steam key has been changed because of the new site design. Please see the new instructions here:

Hello,

I bought Burma Road, Panzerkrieg and Kriegmarime together.
I can redeem Steam keys except for Burma Road
I don't have the "get sream key option" available
Thanks for your help

Indeed !
You're right
The fact is that the game doesn't even appear in the "Steam Games Licences" section

Thanks for the help

ah the new game then, it seems, have you tried to input it into steam, as some games now the key is your steam key

if it doesn't work,

please contact support[at]slitherine.co.uk

with your order details (order reference number or/and email address used when placed the order) and they will help you
I just got the game for free as a registered user. Upon product activation on Steam it ask of me to enter the product code first, so where can i see what the product code is for the game? I could poke around in the game directory for it and search there, game manual not fully read and all but thought i could ask about this situation here now.

Edit: Game manual; "OOB Pacific manual EBOOK.pdf" refuses to open on my PC no matter what i do, my local problem i guess but now i tried at least, some, i hope. Thanks for any help with this.

Error message for *pdf file: Fatal error "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE server".

To get the Steam code you need to register the game on Slitherine (login to My Page).
The code will appear under Order of Battle. After installing on Steam the code is replaced with a 'Steam library' message (see my screenshot).

My Page also gives you access to patches and other files.
One little bonus is that you can run 2 instances of OOB concurrently, Slitherine and Steam.
Great for us multi-taskers :D

Not really at my end. This is what i see on the my page screen:

ORDER OF BATTLE: WORLD WAR II
SERIAL:
NOT AVAILABLE
STEAM KEY:
ON YOUR STEAM LIBRARY

Is it because this was a FREE copy of the game perhaps?
And like said earlier, when going through the correct process on Steam it asks of me for the games product code?
Also, it does not by default after installing the game show up in the Steam library so there´s nothing there about it, tried just now to add it as a "no Steam" game but that doesn´t produce anything that´s worth mentioning from what i can see.

P.S
Just now noticed that i don´t have "Steamworks Common Redistributables" updated in Steam if that could be it, but grasping after straws now or what´s it called. Greppar efter halmstrån.
Barking up the wrong tree, doggy style here.

OK, let's hope someone from Slitherine will pick this up.
I'm not sure how the Steam key works (or is needed) for the free core-game.

Is the free OOB game download just a DEMO?
Download link: https://www.slitherine.com/game/order-o ... rld-war-ii

Just the boot camp, tutorial section, that´s playable and then nothing else? If just a demo then the download page should reflect that fact.

Edit: "free to TRY" some text in the clip states in that page above´s clip. Great, i missed that.
Do point this "little" fact out then clearer i suggest, easy to miss it.
Thank you

The Boot Camp campaign has 4 missions(good campaign) and you can play the first mission of each DLC(14 DLCs) if I remember correctly...Could you confirm that ?

Yeah i noticed that, tried Pearl Harbor and was the USA. Say no more. Hint, hint nudge nudge.
I won´t b*tch about it now though, i feel that mood is coming up but in all fairness, it was for free.

Edit: It´s confirmed. For that specific DLC at least mentioned above.
