Steam vs Standard KRP version
« on: March 07, 2018, 09:59:41 PM »
Is there an advantage in using Steam version of KRP, rather than the standard version?

If faster downloads are what you want the game is literally identical regardless of steam or piboso version

Hello, off topic, but is there a way to convert my stand alone license to a steam license?
Thanks.

Thanks for your reply. However I get this message:
Only license keys purchased before the 16th of July, 2017 can be converted to a Steam key.

Why is that?

If you bought it before July 2017 you bought the beta.

The possibility to convert the license to a Steam key is meant as a bonus for those who purchased Kart Racing Pro while still in the Beta stage of development, when there was no Steam option.

You can still race online, you just need to update the game to the latest release
Which you can do here: http://www.kartracing-pro.com/?page=downloads

Please note that the Steam and standalone versions are fully compatible, including online.
