Have you had an acceptance email?

I've recieved this email.

Hi.

Thank you for registering at www.babelonlinebeta.com. We hope you
enjoy being a part of our new online gaming community!

I apologise for the delay in contacting you all.  Unfortunately I have
been having a problem sending emails from my usual mailbox and so I
have set up this temporary gmail account.  If you want to contact me
please continue to email me at [email protected] (I can
still see my emails!).

Several of you have emailed to ask why you cannot access the website:
Right now we are still preparing to run the pilot project and you have
not been given access to the site yet, however we will be ready to
launch in the next few days.  This email is just to let you know that
we have your details and you do not need to take any further action at
this time.

Also, thank you for running the system profiler we provided. This now
means we know what hardware system specs your machine is running on,
which of course allows us to be more precise when analyzing the
testing of new software.  Because we have your profile this will make
it more likely that you will be selected for future PC projects.

Once again, thanks for joining our community and becoming a valued
member. We look forward to working with you on exciting projects in
the near future!

If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Regards.  James

We are pleased to say that you have been accepted into the first project; the Half-Life 2 mod test. Note that to participate in this project you will need a PC and a copy of HL2.

(For future 'live' projects we will be providing an entire game, however because this is a pilot project we can only provide the mod code).

Please be aware that we are still creating the website, and so although it is functional it appears quite basic.  Hopefully the artwork will be added in the next few weeks and you will be able to see the site evolve wow.gif )  Of course, if you have any suggestions for the site we would be happy to hear from you!

The HL2CTF servers will now be up 24 hours a day, and you are free to use them as much as you wish.  Details are posted on the website.

This week we will start with a 'free test' of the HL2 mod; please feel free to explore and play the game in whichever way you choose.  Of course, if you find a bug or gaming issue please let us know by submitting a bug using the online form.

Next week (Monday 13th June - Thursday 16th June) we will be running a series of scheduled tests in the evening, details of which will be posted on the website.  If you are available we would be very grateful if you are able to attend these.

If you do plan to participate in the free test and / or the scheduled test it would be very useful if you could reply to this email by June 10th so that we have an idea of how many players we will have.

As said, our main site is still developing, but when you get a chance please feel free to drop in and check out our new BabelBeta forums. As any good community should, we want your feedback on the site, and any questions about babelonline and future upcoming projects will be most welcome!

So thanks again for joining our community and becoming a valued member. We look forward to working with you on more exciting projects in the near future. And more importantly, making online gaming even better.

Any queries, don't hesitate to contact us.

- James


I got this today - hopefully you'll get the same before the weekend.

Yeah that could be it. HL2 is a 15 rated game, after all.

Hi Dalton.

I'm really sorry for the delay in communication, my usual mailbox has
"malfunctioned".  At the moment you cannot access the website as we
have not launched yet.  I realise that this was not made clear in the
original communications, several people have asked what the problem is
and I apologise for the confusion.

However, the good news is that we're very close to launching now, and
I hope to be contacting you this week to say that we are ready to go.
Also, please note that I have sent an email out to the whole community
saying we are nearly ready to start, and so you should see this also.

Look forward to seeing you online v soon!

I played it a bit last night - the mod is actually already available, but it's a trial run for future games. It's a REALLY good mod, a lot of fun - there's one flag and two teams fighting over it, rather than the standard two flags/two teams set up..

I really hope you all get accepted and up and playing soon - I'd feel really bad if no-one gets in.

@TommyAngelo: It's a big mod, but it's worth the download, believe me.

Cool, glad to hear you've been accepted.

I've heard 2 servers will be up and running some time tonight so keep an eye on Steam - servers 7 & 8 should be available to play by the end of the day. I'll try and get on there myself tonight and we can all kick some arse.

Server 3 is working.

*Or it was. Well there's a bug. Either that or the babel server monkeys are drunk. I think there may be a bit of trouble on the server side - it started warping when someone tried to connect - what's your name in-game?

OK I have to split now, but I might be back on in a bit. Peace.

**Bug reported. Just so you know, I was setting a Slam as it kicked us - I was also using a Slam when the server I was on alone fell over. I've set Slams before on that mod with no trouble, so it may just have been the server.

It might help, yes. The test coordinators should be able to answer all your questions - Like I say, I just tried to find volunteers. If theres any reason why you haven't been accepted, they'll know. Write them a mail.

HL2 CTF is just the same as Deathmatch besides going for the flag and you get so much health, I really don't like it that much but i'll play it sometimes.
