First install of this game demo using Steam version - No icon in mini games list for steam.

without steam running
Launch game using razor.exe in "common\razor2 hidden skies demo"

Result: Game launches but can't connect to steam works, then goes to thank you for playing screen. No attempt by demo to launch steam if not running or to drop steam-works & treat as a non-steam version.

with steam running
Launch game using razor.exe in "common\razor2 hidden skies demo"

Result: Game launches fine, but there is was no mouse cursor on menus after initial install*, seems to have resolved it self now. Don't know what caused it though (steam works available?).

* Tried validating cache files
* Tried deleting & re-installing game
* Installing non-steam version over top of steam version
* Going back to steam only version (now working with menus)
* Not tried alt + enter to get to window mode & back again

Swap the following keys around under options.
Change slot = V
Primary gun = C

Now go & equip your ship with an item in each weapons slot. In game when you press either of the re-assigned keys, both weapons slots cycle.


NON-Steam version
See post 5 of the following forum link for where to download from. http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1371586

Result:
Runs fine, can be added to steam menu as a non-steam game & has an icon

side note mouse & keyboard options
Is there any way to use the mouse for moving ship,
Is there any way to use mouse buttons 1 & 2 to fire weapons
Is there any way to use keyboard to cycle through weapon slots
