This is not Open Beta. We are just inviting more people in order to hit some of the concurrency numbers we want.

Thank you so much for continuing to help us with Myst Online: Uru Live.

GD, there are some serious issues with object states with more than one avatar in an age... Are you guys working on those, or are they fixed for tomorrow?

So, in other words, we can talk about what's in BETA NOW anywhere? So we can chat in the other forums, blab in blogs, etc.? Or only in that forum?

I think the prview is the going from closed beta to open beta to closed beta to open beta thing. It was in a post by RAWA on the DRC site about the different beta stages, I think.

Most likely, but they might want most of it there. Oh, and don't forget, you can post bugs from this build in those forums.

Darkstar understands how the Preview versus Beta thing works. I'll explain in more detail below his quote.

(I've edited this post to reflect a correction that greydragon provided below.)

darkstar wrote:
Well this should get interesting, never been simultanously doing the samething whilst old me was NDA'd and my new Preview self isn't. Oh well gonna get some practice at role play, come tommorrow its going to a case

Previewer 'You just got in today as well'
Me 'Yeah got this email yesterday could'nt wait to get in'
Previewer' Where'd you get that really silly helmet, I did'nt see it in the closet'
Me ' Sorry gotta run just got a PM Rands trying to jump the barriers'

Seriously tho we will all have to be careful about only talking about what we can see now.


Here's how it works:

* Think of Closed Beta as being "over". Done. Your NDA prohibits you from discussing Closed Beta outside of Closed Beta. The Closed Beta forums are still here, and we can still discuss things that happened in previously Closed Beta in this area... for now. Nowhere else.

* A new phase has now begin, "Preview". More people have been invited in. Your prior inclusion in Closed Beta grants you automatic access to this new "Preview" phase. Because this phase is not Closed Beta anymore, you cannot talk about Closed Beta. You have to pretend that you just got into Preview just like everyone else who is new. The new "Preview" forums are for discussions of things in Preview. That includes all bugs and features currently in the software... but nothing that you saw previously which has been fixed or removed. Not everyone is invited into Preview... not yet. Not until Cyan knows what the servers can handle.

* After "Preview", we should arrive at "Open Beta". In Open Beta, you still cannot talk about anything from Closed Beta.

Bottom line: Treat it as though we've hit open beta, with the caveat that not everyone is in yet.

Preview and Open beta both don't have an NDA

Open beta means anyone is invited. Which is not the case at this time.

Hi all,

*Just a quick note*

...Don't make the mistake I just did on the new forums...

I had forgotten that my signature had a reference to beta testing URU...

I ran as fast as I could to update my profile, but it would be kinda hard to convince the new players I just got in.... 8)

just a thought... back to testing :D

Will someone let us know when invites have been sent out so we can all post our "Oh wow, this is so neat, I've never been HERE" posts? Or will we just have to guess by the teeming thousands flooding the preview boards? I assume people will be allowed in tomorrow or sometime shortly afterwards.

Edit: Also, is the preview board viewable by all NOW or will it only be visible when preview is going on?

Same here. Will there be a wipe? If so, I'll likely switch over to my subscription GT account.

Any news on this?

Oh yes this would be nice to know, I'd make the switch too.

Imagine if you will that yesterday I told you that starting today we went to open beta. You are asked to not talk about what you saw under NDA to the open beta group. Same thing here, everyone under the NDA stops talking about what you saw previously and is happy to be invited to the preview. Again this is not open beta because no everyone can get it, but there isn’t an NDA on the Preview period because the preview is only what you see at this moment.

Peace

What a darn mess these forums are now with the extra sub forum for preview.
I know everyone was under pressure and resources tight but for Heeks sake
why wasn't the original Beta forums just made separately
from the main forums.
Now we have to be extra vigilant not to post things where were not supposed to.
Gesss I feel really bad for the mods right now and it's going to be a mad house when these forums
start rocking with even more new people.
So a request MOVE the beta forums to a totally separate area.
Please
