I've bought the starter pack for Tribes: Ascend on Steam but am unable to activate it in game.

My Tribes account is a non-steam account created a while ago, can I link it to Steam somehow?

It will put the starter pack on the first account you login to from the steam version of the game, so you have to download it from steam and login there to get it, but after that you can go back to using the hirez launcher in you want.

Would be nice to avoid having to download the game again in Steam... any ways to start the download, close Steam and then copy the files over from the other install location ? – Holger Jul 19 '12 at 8:39
