Cool! Thanks for confirming that. And that's easy to fix! Just have them add the new app id to the old one that was activated with the CD key.

You should make a post about that in the game forums, by the way! Make sure people know this so there's no drama. :)
Astral Projection  [author] Jun 5 @ 11:49am 
Uh yeah, we are gonna try to work that out with Valve. They gave us a new App ID when the game got Greenlighted. Gonna see if migrating the keys we gave out over to the new App ID is possible.

But, it is the exact same game no difference. It kinda sucks though because I don't think the achieves will be public for the test version. ;(
Foxhack Jun 5 @ 11:46am 
Uh, I got the game in Groupees, and I activated a key, but it seems I don't have the version in the store, rather I have a 'test' version. Help?

@xrogaan, hehe what you mean? But I work a day job ... unfortunately heh. ;(

@AstralProjection how do you even gain money?
[HELL] King WayloW [NL] May 23 @ 6:40am 
ok nice, its a cool game so looking forward to it
Astral Projection  [author] May 23 @ 6:39am 
@KinWayloW - game is ready to release. There's some type of glitch with our Steamworks store front that Valve is fixing. Not sure what the deal is, but shouldn't take too long ...
[HELL] King WayloW [NL] May 22 @ 5:07am 
still no update ??
ETCyberHunter May 18 @ 12:16pm 
And the problem is fixed thank you :)
ETCyberHunter May 18 @ 12:16pm 
I sent the email :)
Astral Projection  [author] May 15 @ 5:35pm 
@ETCyberHumter - can you email "gar@eecs.ucf.edu". We started giving Steam Product Codes for people who find bugs. Just mention your Steam name and that you found the bug.
Astral Projection  [author] May 15 @ 12:17pm 
@ETCyberHumter - I'll look into that tonight.
ETCyberHunter May 15 @ 5:38am 
Hi there!
First of all your game is absolutly awesome :D
But i have a litte problem. I stuck at quest 64. Your mission is to scan a Megalith in Serpens Gamma (i think) but if i scan the Megalith nothing happens. So is there a possibility to "reset" quest 64 or something else?

I received GAR as a freebie, and I have to say that this is one fun little game. I will be watching for it to finally hit the Steam store, preferably with a 4-pack. I'm really looking forward to the new UI and getting in on some multiplayer action.
Astral Projection  [author] Mar 11 @ 6:18pm 
@strat, no it just hasn't been released yet.
Strat Mar 10 @ 10:12pm 
This game was deleted from steam?
Astral Projection  [author] Mar 7 @ 10:33am 
Oh nope. AFAIK you have the game forever. ;)
necro2607 Mar 6 @ 11:29pm 
Ahhh ok, nice! I was worried that since you were greenlit on Steam that the existing version might be removed or something. Thanks!
Astral Projection  [author] Mar 6 @ 7:40pm 
@necro, redid the UI completely. Work in progress, pending some more cosmetic tweaks. WIll release the game fully when we ensure this version is relatively bug free.
necro2607 Mar 6 @ 7:04pm 
What is this sketchy 1mb update to GAR? Now called "Galactic Arms Race (Test)".. will this disable the game??...
Zenos4689 Feb 25 @ 6:17pm 
Gah, I am losing my patience! (Not to be an asshole, but I tend to be that way over things I am excited about).
Cycopunk Feb 21 @ 7:30pm 
@Astral Projection, no clue but we are up and running now. Thanks again.
Astral Projection  [author] Feb 21 @ 7:24pm 
@Cycopunk. nice. It usually installs with GAR through steam. Not sure why it didn't. Or perhaps it was accdientally uninstalled.
Cycopunk Feb 20 @ 7:20pm 
@Astral Projection, thanks for getting me pointed in the right direction. I didn't have Microsoft XNA Framework Redistributable installed. Once that was installed, the game started up just fine.
Astral Projection  [author] Feb 20 @ 5:00pm 
@cycopunk, hmm weird. Do you have XNA installed? It should install automatically.
Cycopunk Feb 18 @ 9:13pm 
I own this game, but I have no clue how I got it. Thing is, I can't get it to run. I try to start it, I get the swirling circle like it's loading and then nothing. I'm not sure what the deal is.
Zenos4689 Feb 3 @ 5:52pm 
I am really hoping that there will be a lot of people on MP. You can only go so far in SP. I have the server software downloaded and completely set up with port forwading and all. Gonna run it once MP gets some serious traffic.
Astral Projection  [author] Feb 3 @ 4:43pm 
@Plaid, hehe no problem ;)
Plaid Jan 30 @ 6:47am 
Anyway, I only sound like a dick because I'm looking forward to the release ;D

It's been so long.
Plaid Jan 30 @ 6:47am 
No offense, but you could simply have posted those two lines of text in an Announcement instead of in the comments.

"We are working hard still - shooting for the end of Feb."

done.
Zenos4689 Jan 21 @ 1:21pm 
I understand you are working hard, I am very excited about the release. It was just I started to have my doubts when there were no updates as to what was going on. Keep up the good work!
Omegaonix Jan 21 @ 7:23am 
How much will it cost on steam?
Astral Projection  [author] Jan 20 @ 5:44pm 
@zogilia we are working hard still ;)
Zenos4689 Jan 13 @ 3:26pm 
You should post an announcment with some updates about the current status of this project instead of leaving your current/potential customers in a galaxy far far away......
Astral Projection  [author] Jan 12 @ 9:36pm 
@Omeganix, shooting for end of Feb
Omegaonix Jan 10 @ 12:37am 
When is steam releasing this?

This game is great! Congratulations!
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:52pm 
Ah, would be nice if you add "Charged Shots". Hold button to charge for x seconds, and release a big shot :-)
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:50pm 
Oh, i'm happy to hear that. I was intentioned to suggest a new UI. Good choice. While the game is good, the UI was pretty amateurish.
Astral Projection  [author] Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:47pm 
@Ciunay, put up a new announcement due to your question. ;)
Astral Projection  [author] Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:31pm 
@Ciunay, currently re-doing the UI entirely. Will release on Steam when that's done. After that we plan to change over to a voxel engine and release a level editor where players can design their own galaxies, systems, ships and bases.
Ciunay_Ragathol Oct 13, 2013 @ 3:06pm 
I upvoted this game many months ago, and fortunately i'm already playing it on Steam, but when it gets released? Are you intentioned to add some patch or what? You seem totally inactive. The game is fun and i'd like to see it expanded and with a good community.

Как всякая херь попадает в список игр за которые я проголосовал?
ameer.saadat99 Sep 17, 2013 @ 2:24am 
can we at least have a release date somewhere? I really can't wait.
