What's the reason?

Anyway, this is likely to be skewed, but for all it's worth I got the standalone. Steam's good, sometimes, but I'll leap at any chance to not use it.

I've never had any problems with Steam, and in fact am quite a fan of the idea, but I decided I wanted to buy this game directly from Introversion.

Had it been Steam or go to the store, I'd gone for Steam.

I'm wondering how many people out there are using the cheat.

The cheat? Besides, how does knowing how many use the standalone or Steam version tell you how many use 'the cheat'?

Just to see if it could be done, I used it the other night. I Have steam AND the Stand alone and you run a server with one (steam) and then join your own server as a demo player with the stand alone.

I dont do that. Plus you need two auth keys to do that. I have one. I am using the stand alone to test the beta patch thank you. I have just coppied the auth key file over to the stand alone.

No, you need one auth key to set up the game -- the second player can be a demo client.

So, you wanted to find out who uses a stand alone client and Steam client to connect to the same game yet you specifically left the option "both" out of your poll?
