Installing KaM Remake with Steam

Recently Knights and Merchants has received a lot of attention on Steam. KaM Remake is a must try if you are looking for a real HD version of Knights and Merchants. To assist Steam users we have added a FAQ entry on this topic:

Q: How do I install KaM Remake if I have the Steam version of KaM?
You need to launch Knights and Merchants from Steam at least once before you run the KaM Remake installer, otherwise the installer will not detect it. Apart from that, just download the full installer from our downloads page and run it. If you want to have the Steam overlay while playing, you can add KaM Remake to your Steam library by clicking Games -> Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library on the Steam main menu.

There is a FAQ section on this site where you can find answers to the most frequent questions we get asked about KaM Remake. If you are interested in other topics, please head to our FAQ page. If you have a question which you think should be added to our FAQ, please write it in the comments below 🙂

    I did the following and spent about 3 homers educating myself on how to make it work via steam on my mac but it still does not work for me… I would really appreciate some help. My problem is that i have the version on steam, bought. I launched several times. I downloaded the remake. I downloaded the wrapper. I launched the wrapper. It only allows me to choose the language and then it gives me the error that i cannot detect the file… what should i do? Is there a way of moving the files somewhere to allow it to be detected?

    • What does the error say exactly?

      • Michael Flanagan

        The installation wizard detected that you do not have Knights and Merchants: The Peasants Rebellion installed. You must have the original game installed in order to play KaM Remake. The installation will be aborted.

        Thank you for the speed of your replying, i appreciate that.

        • You might need to install the game on Windows, install Remake and only then carry over installed Remake ion to your Mac. See the http://www.kamremake.com/mac-osx-and-linux/ as well please. Hope that helps 🙂

            Btw, I was able to download KaM of steam onto OS X via steam without having to wonder for finding the different ways of making it work… So you think i should use a virtual machine or a memory stick from for example my windows laptop to carry over to my mac, then install the wrapper and make it work this way? I watched the both videos and this is what I used to guide my self to make it work but the error that I described made it not work. Sorry for using up your time, if you tell me if thats the way i shall follow it and tell you as soon as it works so it can be a way for other people to make it work thanks to my problems.

          • The main problem is that the Windows installer checks for KaM installed in Windows (obviously).
