    There are the games that are left:
    @T-Bob just claimed Amnesia, but the rest are available to team members :toast:


    Also, if anyone has any difficulty claiming their game (can't reach other member, bad cdkey, bad link...), please let me know ASAP, and I will help get anything settled like the Flash :laugh:

    OK, Sabre was sent his gift link for the CodeMasters Bundle.

    However, I have a slight problem. Amnesia is in my Humble Library. I don't know how to gift it. There is no 'Gift' Button on this page. I have seen it before but not here.

    *EDIT* I just IM-ed Vinska, He says that I may have to allow him to link his STEAM acct to my Humble Bundle acct, then have him claim it. No offense, Sabre, but I don't really like that option and I am hoping for something a little less than this kind of intimacy!:fear:

    Any other suggestions?

    Best thing would be to recieve the code (Generate the code) then give the code to someone and never worry about it again? :D

    you cant just redeem the key anymore you have to generate it to your linked steam account once you link an account all games go to that account. as stated all games are for your personal use only they changed that like a month ago

    if
    there is a way to get it into your inventory to give away as a gift you could give it away. maybe add it to your steam account and just dont download it

    If you put the code in on your steam it automatically goes into your library, and you can't gift it from there. The only way to gift through steam is if you buy a game through steam and choose that at checkout.

    I'm pretty sure you can still give the new humble bundle codes away. I haven't done it yet tho

    I have given stuff away from bundles, but this instance looks tricky. I'm going to try to help Arjai figure it out though; it must be possible, just completed as you said.

    Btw, Amnesia the Dark Descent is a great game so we need to figure this out!

    yes probably its awesome on mac and linux but sadly on win8.1 i lose out on lots of games that could be fun i cant even play fallout 3 which i hope comes out on mac soon as this is one of the reasons i have a tripleboot system. and i like xcode. mirrors edge pissed me off that i cant get past this one section in it.

    I played it on Win 8 (I hunk it was before 8.1) and it ran fine, start to finish. But is a slower paced, survival horror, no combat, very atmospheric and dark, lots of puzzles and exploring. Definitely one I recommend if you like the sort of thing.

    If you already own it, just redeem it again. A giftable copy will spawn right away:
    [​IMG]

    Then click on the gift box, create the gift link, click on it and copy the URL.


    This only works for games you already own.

    From that list, it looks like only Bastion is Mac and Linux compatible.

    I own it but have not used the Steam key for it because it came with some other games that I could play, this one is a bit much for my HD4000.

    So, basically you are saying, Click the Steam key, then a Gift box appears? Last time I clicked the Steam key, it opened Steam and brought me to the download page, never revealed the key and I haven't sen the gift box!

    It's strange that there's no gift box, which makes me think it's an older bundle form before they did that. That right?

    It's a PEWDIEPIE Bundle from sometime this summer. I actually see the gift box on the bundle I redeemed on the 14th, they are in my Steam Library, now, Actually it's not there!

    So, far, none of my unredeemed Steam games have a Gift box! ? :confused:

    I think the only solution that doesn't compromise anyone is to take advantage of Humble Bundle's torrent option. Arjai can download the torrent file, then send that to the winner, and the winner can thus download the game. it's not as simple as Steam, but it's still a legit option, if the winner doesn't mind.

    Thoughts?


    Nevermind, looks like Arjai's got it..... :respect:

    OK, Crisis averted!! I took a chance and won!! :D

    I did a little experiment, with an older bundle...Then went ahead and clicked the Steam button, for the Amnesia game. Boom, up pops the KEY!! So, I sent T-BOB the key. Should work out, I hope!

    I was a little rushed this morning and wanted to see what I could dredge up with my post, in the end, it was just a little more time to investigate and a hint from ManofThem, he asked if it was a game bought before the Gift boxes. That lead me down the path to a result, a little indirectly but, it helped.

    Thanks everybody!! :lovetpu:
