In preparation for the release of the prototype next week, we decided that it is really important to answer some questions. However, instead of hiding this information in a regular blog, we want to make sure that the information is as clear as it can possible be. Next week there is going to be a LOT of people asking us tons of questions, and we want to be able to redirect them to this page.
No need to, credit island names and usernames are two different things. The username will only be used for authentication when you will need to update the game or play with the multiplayer. You will be asked to give us your credit island name later when we are no longer in a rush. ;)
There will be two ways of doing that. The problem we have is that we cannot make an automated script that changes the email in both Humble Store Database and Castle Story Database. So here is your options. You will be able to send a request under the Castle Story control panel, it will be changed on our side but you will receive an email with a ticket number, I will have to go through those tickets and change them manually afterward in the Humble Store system. Or, you could simply change it on both sides by yourselves. There will be an option to check if you do that so it doesn’t deliver us a ticket and gives me more work. :)
It is handled on the Humble Store system. When we release the prototype you will receive an email containing one link for your own usage and multiple other ones corresponding to the gifts. The people who receive gifts will have to first register themselves on Humble Store, then they will have access to the download link. But they will be given a serial number too and they will be able to register on our database with that.
If you are already in our database, then you will simply enter the username and password you already registred. If you didn’t, then you need to first register in our database and then you will be able to authenticate your game for the first time. Once it is authenticated you don’t need to stay connected to play. The authentication is mainly for statistics purpose so you won’t always be asked to log in again and again.
