    Hi everyone. I have a game on Steam which I launched last October. Right now I'm experimenting with adding a demo and have included an in-game button to launch the Steam store page.

    The problem is, "steam_activate_overlay_store" with the correct app ID opens the DLC page for my game instead of its actual store page. When this demo goes live, I don't want players going to an empty DLC page when I really need them to buy the full game from the store page.

    Any thoughts or workarounds? Thanks.

    I know there's "url_open" which I can use with the store page's URL, but I'm not so sure that many players are logged into Steam through the web browser.
