is the above mega pack compatible with the Steam version of the original game?

As far as I know. I had like 2 of the DLC from Steam and bought the Megapack this past Xmas to fill out the ones I was missing and IIRC I bought it at Matrix.

Just bought it for 19.99. Better than 60.00 :)

Ugh...downloaded the megapack but I get an error that says it cannot update because "the program being upgraded may be missing or the upgrade patch updates a different version of the program..."

If you contact tech support I am sure they can work out what is going on.  IIRC for the Slitherine version, the installer is going to be pretty much just unlocking the DLC if you are fully patched up already.  Have you tried running the game after this error, in case it is a false error message?

Cheers

What I did after I got the MegaPack serial is to start BA as normal and click on the "Unlock Expansions" button. Enter the MegaPack serial for EACH of the listed expansions and BOOM, you're good. There is no need to "install" the MegaPack per se.

^No worries, I will try what the doctor posted above and if that doesn't work I will uninstall the Steam version and install the digital DRM-free version.

Plan B worked :) - got all the DLC scenarios plus downloaded all the user made campaigns, including WWI missions!

If you were trying to install the Slitherine megapack install on top of the Steam version that would definitely explain why it didn't work :)

Where are the user made campaigns? On the matrix forum?

Not in front of my machine right now but the user made scenarios did come from the Matrix forums, IIRC.

Hmmm. Not having much luck at either Matrix or Slitherine. There are several forums at Slitherine devoted to mods but all the links get dropbox errors.  :'(

I'm fairly certain that you get Battle Academy scenario mods in pretty much the same way that you get Pike and Shot mods: you download them from inside the game.  One of the buttons at the top left of your screen takes you to where you need to go. 

My flag mod, however, is NOT one of the mods that can be loaded that way.


Update:

I just looked -- you have to go inside campaigns (second word from left across lower portion of screen on first page), then click on the third button from the left at the top of the screen (the one with pictures of folders) on the second page.
