Returning player with a pre 2.7 account, cant login from steam

Post by mimzy498 » Sat Sep 19, 2020 6:12 pm

Greetings, I got a bit of a problem. Y'see I havent picked up this game in a very long time. I just updated several points of information connected to this account not too long ago. I recently got the game on steam and I'd love to play it with this account, when to my surprise the game tells me this account doesnt exist, when I'm on it right now. I really wanna play this game so I can get started on my nostalgia-inducted trip down memory lane, but this problem is ending up being a real obstacle. I'd love some assistance with this. I'll stay in touch just so I dont miss anyone, as I know this board can be a bit inactive at times.

Hi mimzy498,

Forum accounts run on a separate user database which used to be connected to 2.5 and older versions; they have always been incompatible with 2.7 and Anniversary Edition. This is mentioned in the support database articles-
https://support-classic.wolfquest.org/h ... an-account
https://support.wolfquest.org/help/creating-an-account

The WolfQuest Team opted to start with a clean slate -- the forum's user database has accumulated over 850,000 accounts, with the majority of those accounts being inactive or abandoned.
To play multiplayer or use account features in the premium versions, you will need to create a new account within the game itself. If you already have a 2.7 account, you can import it over to AE via the in-game instructions on the account interface.
Nothing interesting happens.

Thats a dang shame.. But honestly 100% understandable. Welp I better get started with making a new account then.
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to me, and fill me in on this. I really do appreciate it, means a lot to me that even though a game as old as this I'm still able to get really wonderful support! Have a wonderful day homie!~ ^^
