    Sanya was just explaining the situation in the Thanksgiving thread.

    "Then the beta got delayed for the Hero engine patch. (For those of you just tuning in, Hero 1.67 is so big that the game may have some compatibility issues. The Hero people are working with us very closely on this, fortunately, but that doesn't make it go any faster. It just makes it go... functionally.)"

    Pity this game did not get released a couple months ago as they were hinting. Its going to be a long slog for them to get people to notice it when it finally comes out.

    yeah, I'm waiting on Firefall, and glad they aren't really promoting yet so they can give a big push when it's ready.

    From Sanya:

    The Official Deal With Beta - Prime Online

    "So, we've got the new engine patch! Now we gotta fix all the stuff in the game that doesn't work with the new improved engine

    A lot of it is visual, to be honest. The content is basically fine. But the animations are borked, and the lighting is all off, and everything needs to be re-optimized. There are also some very specific technical things we need help with... but now that we're officially in the holiday season, many of our resources are unavailable. We will be hard at work all next week - time off is for the weak! - but we are still looking at the end of next month before we can add new people to the test.

    So all of you who were promised a spot in the December beta? I apologize. I can't express how disappointed I am. You have not lost your spots - your spots just moved to late January.

    We're just going to keep our heads down and add stuff in the meantime while we wait for these new challenges to be overcome and ironed... okay, I mean smashed into submission. Thanks for your patience. We will almost certainly send a mass email when things are ready to cook again. "

    Closed Beta is restarting this week.

    Initially the core testers will have to green light the games readiness for a larger test. Then they'll start inviting those that have won a Beta key in the last few months. The game is in advanced stages and they're expecting to give out Media Keys in the next 4 weeks or so.

    If you want to get a Beta key, tune into the next Dev Chat on 10th of February. (11th Feb 7am 0z EDST)

    Sanya hinted that they will be giving away keys en mass to boost numbers in the next round at the last chat.

    I got mine by just listening to the live DevChat.

    Warren and John just said on camera something along the lines of, "Hey, if your not currently in Beta, write to Sanya right now and you're in."

    Sanya hinted that they may have a similar deal at the next one, to boost Beta numbers.

    It's actually pretty cool to join at this size, since the community is small enough that you can build real relationships with the Devs. Like Sanya has PM'd me for something written on the guild thread, how cool is that!?

    Oh poo! I missed the boat then :( I thought perhaps they would announce a website or a way to get a beta key. Not that you needed to do it right then and there.

    Since you're so chummy with these people are you able to write to them and ask for one more key? For little ol' me?

    :)

    Saturday morning AEST. Looks to be the best shot of getting a key, plus getting some more info on it in the meantime.

    got an email from sanya saying that ill most likely be in the beta within the month which is good news since ive been on the beta list for 6 months now .
    so if your on the list or if you get to the next dev chat you wont be waiting long.
    oh and hi getafix nice to see we are gettin some new peeps in the guild its been awhile since someone has joined .
    and its best to join the dev chat 10 to 15 mins early never runs exactly to schedule

    On a different note i think its its kinda funny that since the dev chats started mid last year when they were every week which was better then once a fortnight , that there are bunch of gamers that get together with the devs for an hour or so and that from what i can tell that all the dudes that used to show up for the first few chats when there was only like 14 of us are still showing up the the chats 6 months later .

    Well, no mention of beta keys - I asked Sanya what the best bet would be and she said probably tune in to the next chat, which I will be anyway.

    BETA IS COMING!

    If You Were A Winner... - Dominus


    Sanya Weathers wrote:

    IF YOU'RE A WINNER...and you're still here, and you still want to use that beta, email me:

    sanya AT pitchblackgames dot com

    I mean people who won trivia betas, contest betas, December betas, whatever. If you won a beta, I want to hear from you.

    Yes, I have a database, the problem is I don't want to screw around wondering how many of those people have gone inactive. I'll still flip them, but I'm trying to get a sense of how many people are prepared to play in the next week.

    OH YEAH I SAID IT.

    (Assuming the High Council says we're good to go, of course!)

    AND WAIT THERE'S MORE!

    Anyone who was ever told they have won a beta should be emailing me

    I will reply once I check you off the spreadsheet. You will get your invite letter next week, probably the end of the week.
