Missing Steamworks HTML version

I'm using the link sent to me in my email and I see the regular PDF and print-friendly versions just fine, but I don't see a link to the HTML version.

On a related note, how did you guys manage to keep the file size so small without sacrificing graphic quality? Compared to other PDFs of similar page-count, 3MB is something like 1/5 of the size I would expect. Very nice.

(I bet part of the reason for the small file size is probably "We're 12 to Midnight, not Talisman Studios". But I kid. )

Preston will be able to answer the question regarding compression techniques, but I can field the one regarding the HTML version of Steamworks.

Way back when you originally pre-ordered Steamworks, you should have received a download key that allowed you to download a PDF of just the cover. Since then you've received another download key allowing you to grab the actual product pdf.

The key that the HTML version is attached to is actually that first key you got with just the cover. Sorry about the confusion, you aren't the only one! We'll get this all smoothed out for the next one.

If you've lost the first key, let me know and I'll get it over to you :)

It took a lot of tweeking, a few curse words, and a ritual sacrifice.
