Beta test interest - Read The First Post [CLOSED]

Postby castewarkp » Sat Oct 08, 2011 4:16 am

The mid-day of the 12th cut-off is upon us and the thread is locked - no more submissions please. We will be contacting the test slot holders shortly to let them know they're in.

Thanks to everyone how posted, even if you don't get in, and a big thanks to everyone for the huge turn out on this!


--


This is a thread to hear from those of you interested in participating in a limited public beta - please pay attention carefully to the following;

If a person were to participate in a public beta, they should;
1) Meet the minimum specs of SotS2 (see below)
2) Be able to adequately put in a few hours a day of playtesting - the more the better, but those more interested in getting in than helping are of no use to us.
3) Be a board member, for accessing beta threads
4) Be over 18 years of age. Sorry kids, it's one of those things.

DO

...Post your interest here - your specs or DXDIAG will help

DO NOT

...Post anything other than your interest. Those asking questions (if you must, do it in another thread or PM castewar) here will find themselves on a list. It's not a popular list. Also, posting your interest is not a loop hole it ask questions in the same post. DO NOT CLUTTER THIS THREAD!

...bug us about if you're likely been choosen for anything. If you are, you'd know. If you don't know, you didn't get picked. Don't take it personal, we've got other things to deal with. DO NOT CLUTTER THIS THREAD!

...post "I'm interested, but my specs aren't good enough, or I don't have the time, or etc." We take it as a given that if you're here, you're interested, in general, in playtesting the game. We're looking for those interested and CAPABLE of helping playtest. DO NOT CLUTTER THIS THREAD!

...post replies about/to anyone breaking any of these reasonable requests. You'll end up on the list I mentioned. DO NOT CLUTTER THIS THREAD!

Thanks

c


Minimum requirements:

OS: Windows Vista 32-bit
RAM: 2-GB RAM
Video: 512-MB DirectX 10
Display: 1024x768
HDD: 2-GB free space
CPU: Core2 Duo or equivalent
DX: February 2010 or newer (DX10)
Sound: Any Windows Vista compatible sound device, stereo speakers or head phones
Control: 2-button mouse and keyboard

Recommended:

OS: Windows 7 64-bit
RAM: 6-GB
Video: 1-GB DirectX 10/11
Display: 1650x1080 or greater
CPU: Intel i5 equivalent or better
Sound: Any Windows Vista compatible sound device, 5.1 speaker configuration for full effect
Control: 3-button mouse and keyboard

[UPDATE]

A couple of people have asked, fairly, how people will be contacted if they are accepted into the beta.

Simply, we will contact you via email given with your account as well as PM you through the boards. So, you may want to take a moment to change your email if you put in a clever-clever, not-for-communicating email address. This will, for reasons known only to the designers of the board system, temporarily disable your account until it can be manually reactivated - basically the same as when you signed up. I am the guy manually activating accounts and I am hustling as best as I can to keep on top of it - patience please.

We will also announce when we've contacted winners, so you don't have to flood me with emails asking if you were chosen but just didn't get the email - the chances that you didn't get an email AND a PM are huge.

Thanks!
