Running Age of Redemption on Steam
« on: September 20, 2017, 04:11:37 PM »
Good evening fellow Kindred.

I have a problem,  and I can't figure it out, but I know there ought be a way to solve this.

I want to run Age of Redemption ON Steam, not just have the Steam game and play it separately, no, that is not a solution that I'm looking for, what I want to do is make it run on Steam, count time and everything, while running AoR.

I know two facts so far: AoR has a folder for itself inside the Redemption main folder. Bloodlines Unofficial Patch has it as well. With Bloodlines Patch, all you have to do is set Launch Option to Steam "-game Unofficial_Patch", I tried "-game Aor" for Redemption and it didn't seem to work. So how do I set that?

Thanks in advance.

Steam overlay only works when you run aor using Vanilla EXE option. It wont detect the vampire_aor.exe file unless you add that shortcut as a non-steam game.

What is the "vanilla exe option"? And how could I change the files so that the vampire_aor.exe becomes the new "vampire.exe" and thus Steam is fooled to think it is the original launcher? I tried just renaming it, but the game opened vanilla, I imagine that there ought be some more twisting around than simply renaming the launcher.

It's in the age of redemption config app. There's a button that says "Save & Run Vanilla EXE". Choose that option when running the mod with steam. Steam will bring up a prompt asking if it's ok to run command lines. Just press OK on the prompt and the game will run with mod and steam overlay.
