Switching from playing on GFWL to Steam...progress transfers or not?

Hi all,

I started this game a while ago on GFWL, right before the update. As a result I got 500 empire points and have a bit of progress into the game I'd rather not lose.

Steam had that 75% off sale so I got AOE "Complete" edition for $10. I'm a bit worried about starting it up though - will I lose my progress and have to start from scratch? Will I lose the 500 empire points, or will they stay on my account? Is there a way to move around game files on my computer so that when I play it over steam it will resume from where I left off just fine?

Thanks

I have been wondering this as well. Being as GFWL will not let you buy Empire Points. I have not been able to find a definitive answer.

I'm an idiot...apparently it was AOE 3 complete collection, not AOE online collection that I bought, so this question is now moot. Really pissed at myself especially since I already bought AOE 3 for 1 penny back during the special they had for PC games a while back. Hope you find an answer though.

Transferred over last week, everything is saved as its all on online servers so doesnt effect your progress.

Just make sure to uninstall the GFWL version before installing steam
