Does it say "welcome drillerman" on the www1 website? Do you close the pop-up windows?

Those little pop-up windows that keep asking you to log in? I just kept closing them whenever they appeared, and continuing with the process. I think it worked (I got a confirmation email).

Yes, you should be fully logged into your accounts before you sign up.


Hi Erik,

I mentioned this elsewhere but I still get an error "Already applied" from years ago. You might have to dig deep to find me!

Just close this pop-up, and carry on on the main page. Every time this message box appears, close it (cancel) and ignore it. You should get through.

Signed Up!

I think... I also had the crazy popup appear when I filled in the beta form... I tried to sign into it ... rejected.. so I just canceled and filled it out and submitted ... Hopefully it went through....

More importantly I hope I can help with the beta!

Beta team, must be a daunting task to make the selection :). I'm up to the task, have the time, and the motivation. I suspect you are good muzzlehead. Check your e-mail. You should have got a response.

I keep getting:

On OP beta link and specific forum threads like Das tactics Bacon/Retreat/Chrome mod thread links, but other links work fine. Very strange.

When the actual beta is delivered to the greedy and lucky hands of the few selected people? I think Erik said Eliott would go into some well deserved vacation before the actual start. So, we are looking at a fortnight delay before actual start, something like that?

During the stream on Tuesday, Erik said something about "next week", so perhaps earlier?

Hi everyone,

Just to clarify on the schedule, we opened beta recruitment so that we could give folks a chance to sign up and allow us time to look through the applications and select the first group.

Elliot is taking a vacation this coming week to prepare for the beta phase. As a result, we'll be gradually adding in the first wave of testers over the course of the next week to the tester forum. However, you will not have access to the beta build to test until Elliot returns from his vacation (week after next).

It's also worth noting that we've received a LOT of applications and the reality is that the first wave is limited by what we can handle, so only a fraction of those who apply will get into the first wave. There will likely be additional waves later on, recruited from the same pool of tester applications.

Regards,

- Erik

Hello Erik,

I've been trying to reach you for a long time last week, hehe. (Press e-mail, steam, linkedin)

I'm the person who organized the French translation of DW:U (and the previous extensions) and I just wanted to talk with you about it.

First of all to import the existing translation quickly enough so that French speakers can have DW:2 before the release and have a section in the steam forum again like here: https://steamcommunity.com/app/261470/discussions/0/558756256043027759/

And I'll add a topic on the Matrixgames French forum.

This totally voluntary initiative is now almost 10 years old and we hope it will continue for this new title.

If you want us to discuss the details, don't hesitate to contact me Erik.

Incidentally, I'm very interested to see the potential of modding on the DW:2, I had started quite interesting projects on this part. (resource generator (weapons, politics, races ect ...)

Good luck to CodeForce and Slitherine.

Hey, sorry I haven't seen any of those to date. Thanks for reaching out here as well.

Sure, please e-mail me again at erikr@matrixgames.com so that we can connect off the forum as well.

Happy to support community localization efforts, the more people who can fully enjoy DW, the better.

Thanks, I look forward to seeing what all the modders can do. Since the reveal, we've heard from quite a few who are very excited. Honestly we still have our heads down trying to just finish the game, but we'll do everything we can to support the modding community.

Regards,

- Erik

Best of luck to everyone here in getting selected. I see some faces/names here that I've seen since the very first Distant Worlds 1 days.

I had to change my name (used to be DevildogFF here, but my login won't work no matter what I do), but I look forward to hopefully beta testing DW2 with you guys soon!

Hi everyone,

A quick disclaimer first: We expect that only a fraction of the folks who sign up will get in. I'm sorry about that, but the interest is high enough that it looks like it will be necessary. We'll be adding testers in waves, based on our ability to process and handle the feedback.

The sign-up link is below, thank you all for your interest, please only sign-up if you really will be able to help with testing so that we can make sure our slots are used for folks who have time to contribute:

https://www.matrixgames.com/beta

The page I get redireted to (http://www1.matrixgames.com/beta/signup.asp?gid=734) promts me with a HTTP basic access authentication request*. Even when I am already logged in via cookies.

*I have seen one of those prompts in years. They were originally designed for logins, but we pretty much went for our Dynamic Website code tracking session itself and never looked back.

The Formular also demands my password (what do you need it for, I am logged in via cookie. Just take my dang user ID!), but is not encrypted.
Everything there tells me your page has been hacked to phish away passwords. Maybe one of those tricky hacks, that does not appear to the developers and Admins, only to normal users?
That or the designer of the page has not touched HTML for 3 decades.

I would love to register, but I can not trust some security and design nightmare like that with stuff like my password!
