Huge problem with installation of this game and expansion(earth´s awakening)
So I bought silverfall and EA, i installed silverfall first, then when I was going to install EA the game size is only 250MB??? I went ahead and tried, the game enters only in the first silverfall and doenst recognize the expansion at all.

I tried to install EA first, then i saw the real size of the game, 6GB i guess, downloaded it, then started,and it went fine, I tried to play the original campaign, but the game said I needed the original silverfall installed, I went again and tried to install the original silverfall, and turns out the original game override my EA expansion and again, ONLY recognized the original game and not the expansion itself.

Is this a joke or something?? why is that steam are doing those messy installs?? I KNOW the expansion is a standalone game , but why the hell i cant install BOTH and with their original and correct sizes instead of changing all the time.( EA with silverfall installed is only 250mb, but installing it alone goes to 6GB?? wth???)

I read that i have to install both in the same folder, but as stated above, steam doenst let me install them at the same time, nor in the same folder since I tried and both executables went missing.

I need to play the original campaign with the changes EA brings since it fixed many things and I am not being able to do that with this confusion that steam is doing with both installs

Ok, that's how I did to have both Silverfall and Earth Awakening perfectly work :

  • I first installed Silverfall. I launched the setup to define my settings, and played a few minutes with a new character.

  • I then installed Earth Awakening. You are right, there is a problem, since the download is only less than 250 MB, and when I launched it, it was Silverfall, no Earth Awakening.

  • Now here's the trick : from the Library section, right-click on Earth Awakening and select Properties from the menu. Then select the Local files tab and click the "Verify integrity of game cache..." button.

  • After the verification process Steam will magically download all the missing files.

  • Launch Earth Awakening and enjoy! You will be able to play either the Silverfall campaign (but with EA enhancements) or play directly the EA campaign.
