Beta Site closed to testers?Follow

Hello, I haven't see any thread about this, so I was wondering if I am the only one having this problem, I tried to log in to the Beta site to check on some information about the game and I get a message saying that the username and password aren't found. Then there is some registration link that isn't fully working now. So I was wondering if the site is "locked" for modification or if the Beta 3 accounts aren't enabled, or will be able to access the OB without having to re-register.

Sorry if this was asked before... if so feel free to merge posts, delete or something.

Works fine for me, it seems to be an occasional glitch because there is no username linked to your SE account if you're Phase3+, it just didn't register the guest account to you since everyone is sharing a guest account that got into Phase 3 and on (forum wise.)

Hmm, that's odd.

I'm able to log in and look at anything on the boards. I haven't received an inbox message asking to re-register my services yet, so I'm assuming that hasn't happened.

Hmm so I guess Closed Beta 3 testers cannot log in the Beta site until they decide to open the account registration, because Beta 3 testers are all sharing one account?

>.< sounds confusing and wrong, sigh.... seems I will have to wait until next week. Thank you for the replies.

Hmm, seems I can browse the Beta site without having to log in... weird..

As I understand it, the most recent batch of beta testers were not allowed access to the Beta site at all? At least someone who won a ZAM giveaway key said he was not able to access the site.

Hmm I remember being able to it, since I activated the Beta key on my SE members account, my account became a "CB3 tester" and I could log in and look around.

I was even able to log into the Player's site and modify my settings there.

I got a Zam key and I can log into the Beta forums just fine, not trying to contradict you... just letting it be known.

I got one from one of the giveaways as well and can log in, but I can't post or report bugs as Theo pointed out with the guest account bug.

I haven't had an issue logging in yet, however.

Did they register it in time like Thayos said?

Interesting.


Yeah, even I can't report bugs and I was invited 7/13. From what I've been told, nobody from any stage of Beta can access the Bug Report section; only Alpha members.

In fact, in my Beta invite E-mail, they actually said "There's no need for this wave of testers to submit bug reports". They only want feedback which is kind of surprising... And I think can reasonably make the argument that Beta is more of a (incomplete) Demo than it is a Beta. They want you to play it and just give feedback only.

This is what I've been hearing as well, however, I can't reply on the forums either. I've saved a username under the preferences, but it keeps changing thus I am unable to post feedback anywhere.

I think those who got their keys from the giveaways aren't able to post for some reason, but I could be mistaken. I have heard of others having the same issues.

I'm having no problems with any of it. I was one of the origianl crop from the ZAM forums and have been in since the start of Alpha testing.

I think that's because the first ZAM giveaway involved notifying square of the Emails you signed up with, which they then activated for an alpha/beta account. There were no beta keys to give away. You essentially were "picked" for Alpha just as a person who was completely randomly chosen.


Looks like the Beta site access is buggy for those with a Beta Key account.


ps. I LOVE your avatar Smiley: lol That little thieving bird = teh winz Smiley: laugh

Wow makes me feel even more lucky than I did when I first found out! Eternally grateful to ZAM though :)

Yeah the avatar made me chuckle when I saw it, it was either that or MrT doing a very dodgy version of the robot dance :)

Please note that testers added during Beta Test phase 3 do not have the ability to report bugs, or post feedback on the Beta Test website.


From the email I got with my key...so it's not even a bug it's just how they decided to do things. Some of those mock usernames they give me each time I log in crack me up though.

I'm Donko Grande this time. lol

I tried logging in 2 days ago and it didn't work, but now it does. So I'm assuming it's just a glitch.
