(bearing in mind it has a 50 msg limit).

I'll hasten to point out that in fact, that's not the limit anymore.

Right I'm already getting various members asking 'Why haven't I had a reply yet? or questions along similar lines. I'm still in the process of clearing up the old Hiddenite section and preparing for the new blood. I'll PM successful applicants on an individual basis at a later date (not too long, I promise). I have had rather a lot of PM and emails in the last 24 hours, give me a break please. :)

I can't believe how slow this is going. I thought we would be half way through with testing by now, on the way to releasing B5 tomorrow. :p

I'd love to help, but I know I don't have the time or commitment. Thanks guys *thumbs up (perhaps for leprosy?)*

I wouldn't mind *playing* it though? :p no? Fair enough. Hope the testing goes well.

Beta testing basically involves playing it until you break it. :D

I'll apply to.
I'm one of the old Hidden Nerds (right, Daedalus ;) ? ) , I'm waiting almost 1 year (!) for beta 5. Without a crash bug, without hdn_restartround spammed servers and all that...


And maybe i can write a Beta 5 review for HLPortal.de (www.hlportal.de)? I'm one of the writers there and Hidden: Source is ranked #1 in our MODDB :) .

you do realise the round restart bug was fixed ages ago right?
and crash bugs will probably always be there. even CS 1.6 has them.

There have been testers for a long time now. They are just sporting new sig pics.

Will there be an announcement for when this process is complete?

I've cleared (at least I believe I have) all the old Hiddenites who were, frankly, dead weight from a long time ago and don't show anymore.

I have been swamped with requests and am now making my way through them and gauging who is truely going to help and those who are just an arse looking for a glimpse of early builds before deciding who should get dropped into the Hiddenite section.

I'm also attempting to hold off adding any new blood until we have a build that isn't horrificly broken by the SDK. Last thing you guys want is to get in there to find no build or to start reporting a load of bugs we already know about. I ask that you bear with us while we sift through the ever growing list (it's still open to apply remember!) and attempt to get a build that plays nice so we can all get in there and thrash the hell out of it. We haven't forgotten about anyone of you or just gone quiet for no reason so please just watch this space. The sig badges you see already are the original Hiddenites who 'made the cut', not new ones!

The ironic thing is now I know about beta testing, I have less of a chance to get in, eh?

i sent one a while ago and still no responce..i dont wanna be anal,just wondering if you got the email =)Did you ever think that they may have just said no. Or if you read a post or two up, you would know that they aren't adding new people until they have a stable build, or atleast that is how I understand it.

I'm now doing a shortlist so that the team can decide who we should be extending invitations to. You are running out of time to get in on the action (so to speak) so get your mails/PM in quick if you want to be considered...

Final selections are being made so I'm closing up this thread. If you made the cut, well done and we will see you on the other side, if you didn't don't despair, we are always on the look out for new testers. Just remember to play your part in the community, be helpful and courteous to others and you will be noticed and possibly selected. This can happen at anytime. Most the current crop have been selected this way.

Remember, you are not your post count.
