Connect your Icrontic account to Steam

Wanna get sweet, sweet achievements for playing TF2 this season? Connect your Icrontic account to Steam.

This plugin to allow this is brand new and we're the guinea pigs (as usual) so let me know if it's buggy. Apologies in advance for the kludgy UI; some of it is Steam's fault. :)

  1. Check your profile to see what email you're using here.
  2. Log out.
  3. Click the "Steam" icon in the sidebar.
  4. Login via Steam's website. You'll be sent back to Icrontic.
  5. Enter the email address from step 1 & submit.
  6. Enter you Icrontic password & submit.

If you don't enter a username in the middle of that, it will throw a "Username is required" error that is completely stupid and ignorable. Email is all that matters.

    The UI from the first page is confusing. It indicates to leave the password blank UNLESS you are attempting to connect an existing account so I entered the password (even though you didn't indicate to do so, wanted to see what would happen). Received this screen, which looks like what you wanted me to hit.

    FIRST
    edit: maybe not, tush faster but buggier

  • @Tushon I'm not sure if I did it right, but I left my email address blank and selected my username. Then I entered my usual IC password, and I think it worked? I don't know how to check.

    Followed the steps. Also not sure how to check if correct. I don't see any visual indication of my Steamyness.

    Edit: So, I tried logging out, then logging back in with my steam account, and it took me right in as me, so I guess that works.

    I was indicating that the step 5 part had a box which said "Leave blank unless you are connecting an existing account" or something similar.

    The only problem I ran into was finding the buttons but that is not a big deal.

    I think I got it. Gave me the same message as Tushon screencapped but then I noticed the wording had changed from the first time and I just hit "Connect" again and it brought me back to the front page.

    Who are you people again?

  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian

    I got the same error as Tush, it's saying that I already exist and I can't have the same email/username as my current account.

  • RahnalH102RahnalH102 the Green Devout, Veteran Monster Hunter, Creature Enthusiast New Mexico Icrontian

    When you first attempt it, it looks like it tries to make you a new account (the wording at the password says "Leave blank unless you are connecting an existing account.") You do it anyways and it swaps to the above screencapped error message but notice the text above the password says "Enter your existing account password." Hit connect again and it should work. That's what I noticed on my run through it.

  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian

    So blank the password the first time?

    My password was autofilled on it the first time, so I would guess put in your password, get the error, then submit it all again.

  • UPSKingpinUPSKingpin Sir Elkhart, IN Icrontian

    From what I can tell, it works like this:

    Fill in all info
    Submit
    Get error
    Click Submit again anyway

    It let me in with no problems.

    Got an error but my password manager automagically logged me back in and it's working so far.

  • FettBaconFettBacon Viscount Icrontian

    It worked for me and I never got the error. I'm not sure what I did but I definitely used my password.

  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Der Millionendorf- Icrontian

    I carefully followed Linc's instructions step by step, and it worked, so... do that, I guess?

  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian

    Oh hey it did the thing.
