I'll give it a go. Ironically I bought Alien Breed: Impact when it was on sale, and haven't played it yet - shame I didn't know this was coming and could have saved a few bucks.

I used to love playing these style of games back on the old 16-bit consoles. Anyone remember The Chaos Engine?

It was slow/annoying to download this morning, but eventually worked. Remember if you're using any Steam content server filters, not all content servers may have the game available for download...

I am with Internode so I have all Australian Steam content servers available. But I still can't download it, so it mustn't be hosted on any of the aussie servers yet. It says it is a 2GB download, so I might wait until it arrives in Australia.

It's been on three aussie servers since early this morning:

180.92.199.88
218.100.43.26
150.101.135.1

I think I got it mostly from the first two.

In case anyone's wondering, the custom in-game MP3s (music) the game uses for battles are copied from their original location on your machine to:

Code:
...\alien swarm\swarm\sound\music\_mp3
