How do I subscribe/download community levels?
When I click on subscribe, nothing happens. If I click on details, then subscribe, it looks like it's subscribed, but when I go to My Stash, then click Refresh, nothing comes up. What am I doing wrong?

I have been noticing a slight delay in downloading after subscribing to user made puzzles and contraptions. Are you subscribing in-game or out of game? If you’re subscribing in-game try closing Contraption Maker and subscribe to a user made puzzle or contraption from the games main workshop page in the Steam client.

You can also check Steam/SteamApps/common/ContraptionMaker/Downloads/subscribed folder to see if the content did in fact get downloaded.

subscribing in game seems impossible, as far as I can tell. I can click the button, but nothing happens. I subscribed to a few out of game, and have restarted both contraption maker, and steam, but still no downloads. Nothing at all in that folder, either. It has been probably 90 minutes or so.

I have same problem. I subscribed for ALL (in steam), steam downloads something, but in game there no puzzles\contraptions. There are 12 puzzles and 8 contraptions which are in game (Miracle, I think). Where steam downloading files if they not in Steam/SteamApps/common/ContraptionMaker/Downloads/subscribed ?

They worked the first days of the beta, but now even if i subscribe to them, in game they think it's not subscribed yet.

Why they downloading SOMEWHERE, but not in Steam/SteamApps/common/ContraptionMaker/Downloads/subscribed ? The name of downloading files not same to name of puzzle you are downloading, so I cant find them with search.

You just have to click "refresh" ingame in the "my stash" tab after subscribing.. works for me !

They should be downloading into the SteamApps/common/ContraptionMaker/Downloads/subscribed folder. It would be nearly impossible to find the downloaded puzzles or contraptions if they downloaded into a different folder as they are labeled with a unique nine digit number. There should also be three files with the same nine digit number a .JPG file, .cml file and a setup information file. Sorry could not help.

Last night I’ve been having issues uploading my second puzzle. I keep getting failed after attempting to upload. It so it might have something to do with Steamworks and not the game. I’m going to attempt to download a puzzle now to see if it works again.


EDIT: Yeah, I successfully downloaded a user made item off on Steamworks. I just had to “refesh” my stash for it to show up.

Theoretically is possible to search contraption files with Total Commander. True name of puzzle is in .inf file. I tryed to search one contraption file with this method in steam folder and in C:\, but there are not this file. So, cominf out, steam downloading files in nowhere, or pretends it downloading something, but really doing nothing.

I think game makers shall do NORMAL download button, but not this perversion "Subscribe".
Why they creating problems to users? In first they sell game with only five puzzles, then turns out I cant normally download puzzles that people make. Smells like evil joke.

Somebody who was lucky and downloaded all puzzles, please host them all in one archive please.

Just wanted to add that I'm having the same problem. Came here hoping for a solution. Subscribed to levels both in-game and in Workshop several hours ago. None (other than Official levels) showing up and nothing in the Downloads folder.

PS Also Verified Game Cache files.

And in general, why levels are in 3 files? It is really so hard to pack 3 files in .zip arhive with normal name?

Update: Fixed!

I completely closed out Steam, including in the Windows taskbar, restarted Steam, opened the game, clicked on My Stash, then Refresh. Done!

Clicking refresh does nothing for me. It takes 15-20 seconds to do nothing, but in the end, nothing shows up. Subsequent refreshes (without closing the game) are instant.

I have shut down steam completely, reloaded and tried again as well. No luck.

I unsubscribed from one, re-subscribed to it, pressed refresh and.... a completely different one downloaded...

It is an endless problem, and I'd like to hear formal comments.

Make sure that steam is not prompting you to log in. When that happens the refresh will not work and just times out. I will add some better error messages. Also, try refreshing more than once. Sometimes steam just fails to download a file.
