Firstly i'm one of the unfortunate people to buy the steam full priced edition of the Chaos rising that come with nothing special (other than saints row 2 which on the PC is the most buggy and terrible thing imaginable and i already own it on the x-box). So yea i feel a little ripped off.

However all this talk of war gear reminded me that i had not re downloaded my old war gear stuff. A few months back i got myself a brand new PC, and now it wont let me download my war gear things from GFWL because its "not saved to this PC". I assume i need to "un-save" it from my old PC, which since then has been completely re-formatted and scrapped for parts.

Has anyone here had to deal with this before and could tell me how? would be a great help.

A number of other players have had issues with this before. Supposedly, there is a way of altering your GFWL directory which allows the wargear to be downloaded.

But it's pointless. All the pre-order wargear for DoW II has already been patched into the game, along with all multiplayer color schemes. You might as well just play through it, since you'll come across the wargear sooner or later.
