War Thunder Through Steam - Link Your Accounts
« on: 15, August, 2013, 16:52:29 »
To link your account and not have to Download 7GB :

Go to your Steam Folder

Normally C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\

Go to

steamapps\common and then make folder called War Thunder

Note there is a SPACE between War & Thunder

and take the files from the folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\War Thunder (Your standard War Thunder Game Folder) and drag and drop (Or Copy) all the files into newly created folder in steamapp/common

then go to Steam Store click to PLAY the game which will ask to install, it will now install files but will install about 900mb of files instead of 7GB!

Of course you can play without Steam but might miss out on exclusive pack deals and Sales.

Once through Steam log in with your normal WT username & password

Just tested all worked fine. Didn't have to log in at all it was all auto as it probably saved all my info in a file I copied over anyway.
900mb downloaded via Steam and a small patch for the Launcher about 80mb.
