How do I link steam account and Runic account?

Postby maLchak » Thu Sep 20, 2012 10:36 am

Bought game through steam. I open the game and TL2 asks for my Runic Games Username/Pass. When I put that in the game says, "This account is not connected to a purchase". How do I link the accounts.

It's done here: https://secure.runicgames.com/

But right now the site is under maintenance.

Ha. Turns out I created a forum account rather than a game account. I'm psyched that you have sold enough to break the servers 8-)

Thank you. Didn't realize it was the same link. I wish I would have known there was a different account necessary for the game, not the forum account, and that it could be linked to Steam way ahead of time. :(

I'm playing offline mode right now. How does one import the character over to online when the servers have stabilized?

EDIT: I just read somewhere the answer to my question. Never mind. For those who didn't know how, load your character and choose. :)

I like how it says its down but this does not effect your ability to play Internet multiplayer in Torchlight 2. Except you know the part where it DOES. lol

I expected the game to just be Steamworks. Whenever it isn't there is always an unplayable multiplayer on launch day.

It doesn't affect your ability to play, exactly. If you had an account, you can still play.

Are you mentally retarded or just stupid? It completely affects our ability to play, we purchased the game and are completely justified in expecting online play to work.

And it does not send me an activation link to reset my ingame password, not the forums pass but the game pass. So, I wanted to play yesterday and now I cant play until tomorrow the sooner. This is a bad joke, I dont like this. TL2 is a very good game, I played it in single, but I bought it to play in multi, there are too many good single games, I dont need TL2 to play alone, thanks

I am glad I got mine to work finally. My account is linked now and works great.....I can play both offline and online now...

If you are on steam to link your steam account to your ruinic account. You do your username and password and then get the comfermation code from steam and the redo it and it should work. I got mine working....

To play your previously saved characters all you have to do is boot up your TL2 and then click resume,Then select internet play and join a game or create one. I finally figured it out.

Oh and you have to use your ruinic account name and password to play it online. (the only important part)
