Yo, is there still a Free version of this around?

Software is always free when you look at the right places. :smug:
You have to be really cheap and stupid to post such thing in a thread that the dev is actually posting in. GC is not super expensive, gets regular updates, and is really good. Skip 5 beers, you can afford it.

Hey, don't get so assblasted just because I made a snarky comment, ok?

Steam's refund policy, I guess.

I doubt you'll need it, though. GC is unanimously praised here, and for good reason. Speaking for myself, I had a bias against it when I bought it (paper is much cooler!), but it's just so much more efficient and easy to use than any other alternative.

I bought pro before steam. I almost bought it twice because of new computer and losing the key. Now the hexographer program on inkwell studios.... yeah.... I had to buy it twice only to find the key buried deep deep deep in emails. I now print out this stuff and keep several digital copies (esp music and art programs).

I also bought a registered copy if a few old map programs called mappy/mapper. Its a fun little thing. Even joytokey i popped some $$ just to be registered because i use the fuck out of that program.

i have campaign cartograpger 3 but never installed it. I should as it was an awesome humble bundle package. So many mappers for various things. GC is gold and well worth PRO.

I'm a little bit confused by the options at http://gridcartographer.com/buy/ . Am I getting this right that the Gamer Edition for $20 is obsolete at this point?

Steam has only the pro edition. The Gamer edition only allows you to map, which is okay if you only interested in that, but you can't use game profiles or any of the other more useful features

edit: check under features what you can do with the gamer edition if you're interested, you can still do a lot with it

The gamer edition absolutely lets you use game profiles and game link. The pro edition is for game developers who want to design their maps and port them into unity and the like. If you're just looking to map your RPG's then the pro version is a bit of a waste.

yeah, I realized that when I checked features. I had in the back of my mind that it didn't allow it, but I seem to have misremembered

Yeah the only thing is that the GAYMER edition isn't on Steam.

Well that's my story exactly. And then I go to the website and read stuff which suggests that the Gamer Edition might not have been updated in a looong time so who knows in what state it is...

Does anyone know if it is possible to download a legacy version of GC from somewhere (specifically v2, preferably Linux version)? Have a code for it, but I haven't used it in a long time and now I cannot find that version.

I would ping Hidden Asbestos about it.

April is long ago now ? Are you a mayfly ?

January 2015, now that was long ago... (this version is probably incompatible with 2021 Linux, and it's definitely no longer supported, but hey if you bought v2 you're alright with me so here's a link :hug:)

For all I know the Gamer Edition might be an abandoned, bug-ridden mess ;-) I don't see any mention of the time of its last version on your website.

As a potential customer: your website gives me the 'I finished the GE sometime ago and work continues exclusively on the Pro version' vibe, with no information on what this 'sometime ago' actually means.

The version number (2021.4) is literally a date: year . month - and I can also confirm I'm still working on all 3 SKUs - just not fast enough I guess ;)

Oh but that's great! Why do you write on your website, then, that you will only be updating the Steam version?
What, where does it say that? I'd definitely like to correct it since that's definitely not the impression I want to give !!

"Grid Cartographer is also available on Steam and has all available features, equivalent to the Professional Edition. NOTE: Any future updates will be provided via the free Steam client."

English is my 2nd language so please take this with a grain of salt [?] but I took this NOTE to be a warning for future customers that if they want to get any update whatsoever they need to buy the Steam edition. Because, obviously -- as my train of thought went -- you wouldn't tell a Steam user they'd be getting their updates via Steam, right?

Now I see what you meant, but honestly it was confusing to me!

Thanks Elwro, I've updated the wording to hopefully make it clearer. I hadn't considered that it looked like this was somehow saying I'd abandoned the other versions. It was just to explain what Steam was to people who might now know (In my experience as the GC customer support dept. - these people do still exist)

Thanks a lot for the link. It still works on Linux, but it seems I was very mistaken and it was further back in time than I remembered. The mail containing the code was from July 2013, so I guess it was still v1. How the time flies :)
No problem though, I'll try to grab a copy of v4 from either Steam or your website at some point (most likely during the sale).
