is there an open beta for UTXMP? I had heard that there was but I didn't know for sure so I figured this would be the best place to find out.... :D

I see some members have Beta Tester under their name. I'd like to know who I'd have to please to get the beta. Cause I'd do it. :D

You have to please ICovetYourChild. And judging by his name, I highly doubt you'd want to please him ;)

If it would make you feel better, you can probably change your own title to say Beta Tester. ;)

On a side note of sorts, it is being beta tested correct? Are we still shooting for the September release?

By the way.. sup everyone, just found these forums, most of you already know me, small community.

Can anyone from FMI confirm if this is an open or closed Beta?

They have enough ppl for closed beta. Open beta's happens when there is lack of ppl.

It will be a closed beta.

Sorry about my spelling, you will half to excuse me, I'm Dyslexic. And for some reason I can't figure out how to get my spell check working in Mozilla.

I think it should be an open beta, I mean we got a small community here, I don't see any problems. Anyone know the word on the release date, still September?

The XMP community is indeed small, the 2K4 community however is many times larger.

well it is for the XMP community
i also think an open beta for the XMP comunity would be good
if u opened it to all UT2004 guys will prolly whine

Despite what you may think, this mod is NOT made solely for the XMP community.
The UT2004 guys will whine? Have you ever looked at this forum? 95% of the whining here is done by "XMP community members".

I concure, a little bit... I know that most of the xmp community likes what your doing, because you are taking xmp into ut2k4 for us, but i also haft to say that if a person complains after it is done about anything... they should just think about not complaining and bitting the bullet on this concept, and it is a small one:


If You Don't like it, learn to code, model, skin, etc, and do it yourself!

As much as I'm sure you don't like hearing this:

THESE CANNOT BE COMPARED.

Movies aren't open ended. With UT you can download FREE MATERIALS to make something. For a video, you have to SPEND MONEY to make something.

Also, there are hundreds of thousands of movies, move on to something else if you don't like one. You have that option.

There are hundreds of video games. Move on if you don't like some particular feature in the game because it's not IDENTICAL to the way it was before.

You are of course free to nit pick. We just don't want to hear it. :p

Those "You cant say anything about the map because you dont know how to map" and "You cant say anything about what i did because you cant make that yourself" arguments are just stupid.

That was example i found at the moment. However, you have to spend TIME to make both things. Learning how to map is not easy part.

BTW i am one of those who cant wait the game to come out.

If you're not the only one complaining then it's liekly there is someone complaining that does know how to do what they are complaining about but are either too lazy or too busy to do it.

The fact is, both sides of that argument are equally stupid, because you shouldn't complain about something you don't know how to do unless you look into the complexities of it and REALIZE that it's NOT easy. That is precisely the point!

Yes, i agree. For example, you can tell mapper about problems in his map, but he is the one who decides how to solve them. So, to conclude:
BOTH
"You cant say anything about what i did because you cant make that yourself"
AND
"Do everything how i said because you do that for me"
points causes only trouble.

Or endless flame war... j/k :D

If they didn't want feedback, would they have a forum?
"This is ****" <-- truly worthless comment
"I'd prefer ___ over ___" <-- constructive
Now, can we go back to whatever vague level of sanity we had before?

Except that the comments so far have been:

"This is ****! You have got to put ______ or else the whole game is gonna be ****! I don't care what you do just take out ____ and put in ______ or else it will be ****!" <-- not constructive. Class A Whining. /me bring in Arnold.

strange. i see lots of controversy but... i dont really understand why there's so much controversy :)

me, i just will wait till i can playtest and map for the game.

i somehow was one of the first 20 or so original "beta" testers so i had a good run with u2xmp (until it started to depress me). i'll enjoy a longer run with utxmp.
