Any way to register the key we got via Steam to the official website to get it outside of Steam too?
I have purchased the program on Steam during the recent sale.

I wonder if is there any way to register on the official website in order to be able to install it too and not to have Steam to run it, as if the connection drop i can't start Art Rage Studio Pro 3

The key gived by Steam isn't accepted by the official website, it's a 25 characters key and separated by - and it won't accept it.

Thanks

I did not get any key, or is it hidden somewhere?

It was previously displayed on Steam directly , no idea why it's not showing anymore

Apparently, you can't register keys on software obtained through a different store than theirs. Try switching Steam to offline mode when your connection drops.

Steam Offline is inconsistent and very unstable. It's not a reliable way for this.

I'd have to agree, this program already takes more resources to run than any of the software I normally use and the inability to turn off Steam when trying to stream art is frustrating.

This isn't my issue but it's one of another thing that might be cool for a lot of user too. The software already seems to have some lag even on highend specs like me lol

The ability to register Steam keys on our website is something we're looking into at the moment.

Speed issues aren't something you should be seeing on high spec computers unless you're working with very large documents or large tools. If you are, please contact us at support@artrage.com with the details.

ArtRage does use lots of resources because we're simulating the physical properties of paint and for any layer you may find up to five times as much data being used as in an app that just tracks the colour of the pixels on a flat canvas. There will always be a gap between the visible end of the stroke and the cursor input point as you paint however - This isn't a speed thing, it's because we're simulating the blending of paint under a brush head and the system doesn't know how the resulting stroke is going to look until the brush has passed over that point. If you lift the stylus it should render the difference between the visible end and the cursor input point immediately.

Thanks for the answer.

I'm gonna send you an email as i get a lot of slowdown even on 1920x1080 document, which is kinda low IMO. Specially if the computer is very powerful.


Which info you look for exactly? Specs and OS?
ArtRage  [developer] Dec 26, 2012 @ 11:31pm 
Specs ( processor, RAM ), OS, a description of what you're seeing ( e.g. which tools and what indicates the slowdown in as much detail as possible - what you're doing at the time and what you see basically ) should be enough for me to start to work with. Thanks!

Hi. I am looking to buy ArtRage. What is your advice as to where to buy it? Site or Steam? I am worried about having to use Steam (it's just another program running and can go down too) but it seems easier just to own it and be able to reinstall easily should I have to.

If you are looking into it right now and decide to (I hope so, to keep up with other software such as Game Maker which offers this) then will it be retroactive? Will I lose out by buying now and where is safest to buy from so that I will have a Steam key and non-Steam version if you decide that?

Obviously I want to buy it when it's still in the sale especially as I missed the 66% off deal.

How do serial keys work? Is it like GoG where you can download any number of times or use a key lots of times or is it like some games where it is limited and after your computer dies twice/you upgrade/you install on two computers of your own) it is gone for good? Thanks.

I've answered your questions here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/100970/discussions/0/864949037801667526/#c828925849451103999

Let me know if you have any further questions though!

Your answer is quite confusing tho.It<s vague about if you can use the key of the software we got via Steam.

Currently, you don't get a serial number that can be registered on our website when you purchase from Steam. In the future, this may change ( we're looking into this ), at which point we would provide all Steam users with a serial number which could be registered.

I would appreciate that very much if you could do that. Steam is great for games but poor for software in my experience. I'd also like to participate in the website more but am not sure if Ican do that if my version of artrage isn't registered.

Regarding participating in our website, you're definitely welcome to do so. You don't need to have a serial number registered in the member area, so please feel free to join in with the forums, contact us with questions or support enquiries and so on. We are happy to provide the same support for all our users.

I bought via the website as it was cheaper (I missed the 66% off deal on Steam). Hopefully I can get a Steam key eventually, I think it will reflect very well on the company if so but if not, well at least it is a great product.
