I'm one of those people that likes to run all my games through Steam, whether i bought them from Steam or not. Most of you are aware that you can add Non-Steam games to your library from the Games dropdown at the top. However to launch Wurm you either need to visit this website, or save the JNLP file to your computer and double click from there. Steam wont allow you to add jnlp files though, only exe's. for those of you on windows you can turn the wurm jnlp client into an exe by running iexpress from the start menu. (start, run iexpress or for vista and later users, start typing iexpress in the search bar). but for those of you not savvy enough, i've attached an exe that automatically runs the jnlp from the wurmonline site. this exe can then be added to your non-steam games list... but guess what!? THE STEAM OVERLAY WORKS! Anyway here's the link to the exe (quick guide to make it yourself is after the screenshot if you dont trust my exe) http://www.mediafire...45s6u25tmiworsr and a screeny with the overlay: Quick Guide to make the exe yourself (windows only) just run iexpress from the start>run or the search bar create new self extraction extract files and run give it a name like "Wurm Online" no prompt no license adding package files-- for some reason you cannot have an empty exe. stick anything in here. an empty txt file or an image (i just used the icon as it was to hand) and click next under install program add this: javaws "http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient.jnlp" click next Hidden no message tell it the place and filename of the exe you want to be made. you can hide the extraction bit too so it's totally silent and seamless no restart dont save finish edit the icon with an editor and image of your choice. voila!
I dont use Steam myself, and it dont know the ups and downs with using steam or advertizing games on steam. But i do know that having a game on steam is usually really good for a game population wise. So with the introduction of 1.0. Do you think it is time to try to get Wurm on steam? - Z
