I know I promised to have a second email out early this week but due to the patch, some other project and getting some resources setup this has been delayed.

I now have the forums created that we will be using, testing servers are being configured. I am still waiting on some additional tester information from our partners.

Once that is done and the new builds are in then it will be ready to go.

I will send you all a new email early next week with the updated timelines (though they still might get some other adjustments).

To all of those that missed the signup, I'm sorry but our 'roster' is full. There will be a further section to the beta progranm once we have the closed beta completed so you have not completely missed out.

I will also try to keep you all updated on our progress so that you can see what is coming.

Thanks again.



Any chance of extended the closed beta sign up time frame? I never knew it was around and I'm a paid cedega user and a professional QA person. I currently can't use EVE on Linux as Cedega is limited to using one account at a time, since I pay for two full accounts, I can't use them when using Linux. I would love to help test this!

Huh? You can install as many games as you like in Cedega. It's no trouble to add a second copy of Eve.

Sweet!
I'm getting an iMac in a few weeks and currently own a G4 Powerbook. Would love to help when you open up the testing.

I play on a 20" 2GHz Core Duo iMac with 2GB RAM and a ATI X1600 with 256MB of VRAM, I'm very interested in joining the Mac beta program, I've beta-tested MMORPGs since Asheron's Call. Feel free to contact me !

Looking forward to the clients being released Very Happy

If you need more testers you can add me to the list for the Mac OS X client beta. I have two Intel Macs(Macbook & iMac) that I'd be willing to spend time testing Eve on.

You can give my slot to someone else. I received the invitation right about the same time I got laid off. I won't be playing any games until I am gainfully employed again. Thank you for the opportunity, I'm sorry I won't be able to take advantage of it.

Sign me up also for Linux beta if possible.Very Happy
Lack of linux client was the reason I took a break from Eve before and I really wish to keep playing eve, so will gladly helping out with beta testing.
Working with computer support so hopefully can be of good service in testing with feedback.

Any chance we will be able to get some details about the beta from players participating - or do you think there's an NDA? :)

I know the Mac client will probably get some attention from Apple, as they dedicate a page for Mac compatible games on their own website. I'm sure it will even catch the attention of current mac users who've not succumb to using Bootcamp for gaming.

OK Update Time!!!11ElevenOne.

I am waiting for the latest build to come through and as soon as it does I will be posting it up on our download service and sending out the link.

No there is no NDA as there is nothing 'new' in this client that is not in the current client. Testers are free to discuss there 'experience' with others we just remind them that they have been asked to help us find any bugs that are left (and I am sure they will find some) so that we can fix them before we open the software up for anyone to look at.

Any other Questions?

Can someone who has been using it with a Mac provide some feedback as to how it is performing etc please? I'm hoping to be able to lose bootcamp if it goes well.

Alternatively I'd be happy to test it out and provide feedback myself on my new model MBP ;)

State Of Play.

We had to do a new build to exclude the 'Microsoft' files from our client build so that it can be legally distributed.

I am now in the process of getting this build to TG for them to wrap it.

Will update with ETA on the installer when I know it.

I suppose it is too late to sign up for this. I will just trust other mac users to test it for me!

Oh i'm so disappointed i just noticed this.
Well if you still need an extra tester on linux, just drop me a line through email. I would be glad to help out.
I'm an IT professional and linux enthousiast for quite some years now.
Hope to see this wrapped clients fast so i can get rid of windows on my home system.

Thanks for the update
About these Microsoft files, understand you cannot bundle them but could a list _please_ be provided so that we know which ones are required (anybody remembers the problem with the fonts?)?
