Ballistics Beta Opens

October 1st, 2003 by Alkini

LGP‘s beta test period for Ballistics has begun. As always, LGP’s ‘net connection is a bitswamped right now, but remember that if you didn’t make it in to the beta, LGP is allowing all who preorder the game from any oftheir resellers to automatically be allowed in to the beta.

    Does anyone know what it actually takes to get accepted in an LGP beta test? I’ve seen the same few people get accepted every single time.

    I had been rejected for Mah jong and Hyperspace delivery boy, even though I had been on the original beta testing for both games (pre LGP). Plus I was also rejected for Majesty and Soul Ride, but I did get in on Ballistics. I would guess that persistence helps, plus buying their games in the past does not hurt. I also have multiple systems to test on, which could be a bonus. I would suggest to keep on trying, and if you really want to get on the beta team, buy the game. I would guess that it would help you for future offerings.

    I just tried to log onto http://betas.linuxgamepublishing.com
    but it says something about a PostgreSQL server error. Anybody else have similar problems?

    You guys, if you preorder the game, you get in the beta automatically. So… go order it.

    btw I was in the savage best test even though yes it took getting the presales one to do it..which is fine I know money talks..but gez four times? ;-)

    anyway its just disapointing not knowing WHY one is rejected when beta testing I imagine should be letting in most all users that apply unless ..the standard letter they send isn’t very informative really so it would be nice ‘knowing’ the real reason so I can avoid wasting my time if i’m just never going to get in…i’ll buy their games thats a non issue because I support native games..but this isn’t right ;)
