  1. Hello, as a passionate Linux user i have to wait 'a few weeks' until i can play the beta. Luckily i have other stuff to do at the moment, so there is little time to get jealous over the Windows beta Well, Steam seems to have this 'Library Sharing' feature for sharing games with family and friends. And i also know this fellow Backer who would test the Beta on Windows - and a little later on, when the Linux Beta goes live, i really would like to help find and fix Bugs in the Linux version of the game. Would it work to share my Beta-access via Steam, and would it work cross-platform? A
  2. http://www.twitch.tv/pwootage Added in custom portraits and just now added in new dialogue.
  3. Running windowed 1920x1080 and the screen blacked out departing the broken tower. I could ESC to get to the menu -- sort of -- to quit out normally, and the pointer occasionally showed up, but the screen was black. Hardware: SLi 2x GTX 560 Ti with 340.43 drivers installed. SLi disabled for the duration of Beta operation.
  4. Yesterday I went and checked, if I could purchase backer beta access on the Eternity's backer site. The good news is, that beta access can be bought for $25, but the very bad is, that one still has to purchase a separate backing tier before having an option to do so. I thought you've said that this is going to get fixed and you've said that months ago. My suggestion would be to fix this before the launch of beta.
  5. On the occasion of the beta-test opening for external testers soon, some of you may wonder what a beta-test actually is. Or, you may not, I do not know. There are some common misunderstandings surrounding beta-tests lately though, that I do know. And perhaps the misunderstanding is mine, that is certainly possible, as the evolution of the games-industry naturally evolves to develop one curious survival trait after another. Is the beta-test an early look at how the game plays for promotion purposes, or is it a test to figure out where the breakage is? Is the beta-test a way to help fine-tun
  6. Update by Brandon Adler, Lead Producer Hey, everyone. Due to E3 crunch we are going to push off Josh's next class update for a couple of weeks. Instead, I will give an update about the general state of affairs for each department on the project now that we are getting ready to head into our Beta period. The next update will feature Josh's final class update along with info from the Eternity E3 presentation. Let's get into it. Status Area Design All of the areas have been in the game for about a month now, and the area designers have been revisiting each area to make sure every
  7. I have been staying away from my PE emails mostly because I want everything to be fresh and surprising. I really don't need to be updated, but caught that I hadn't finalized my pledge. Anyway...through the process I noticed that I could get access to the beta...for additional funds ($25). "Can't wait to play Pillars of Eternity? No problem - add on the early access beta key and you can play it before everyone else! The beta key is digital only." Now...I like the idea behind Kickstarter and getting companies setup while taking out the middle man, but really. Besides Horse Armor h
  8. Hey, you! Yes you! The guy/girl reading this thread! Do you own a PC/Mac/Linux Thing? Do you like RPGs? Do you like H.P. Loveraft? Horror genre? Adventure games? Well, it just so happens that my team and I have been making an RPG-Adventure game over the past year or so, and we've been in beta testing for about... a while. We're just now waiting on all our VO to get in. When you are not paying anyone, people tend to take their time. It's not a Cthulhu Dating Sim. Don't listen to those that say it is. Anyhow. The good news is that the gameplay is 99%. All of the functions and mechani
  9. I can't wait to start playing the game. I thought it was a fabulous idea from the start. Is there a time frame for when the beta will begin?
  10. Hi! This is related to the Development Process and it is more of a question about Beta Testing than a suggestion (although I think it looks like a wise thing to do). This came across my feed somehow, between 2:00-2:30: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2013/08/21/exploring-the-world-of-dragon-age-inquisition.aspx The question to Obsidian is, does Obsidian plan on doing something similar for Project Eternity with their play/beta/early-access testers? I think personally that it looks healthy for both the developers for the sake of development (getting a better game) and, of c
  11. Well, i can only see advantages on this, for gamers and for the Obsidian team. 1- The user imput We all now that one of the major problems with obsidian games are the horrible bugs their games have (its true, sorry mates haha). Same with some mecanics that are not fully tested because of either lack of time or the tester team wasn't really good (i heard somewhere that it wasn't obsidian who did the testing for KOTOR, not sure if true). If all the backers have access to the beta i believe the game we bough could be so much better... 2- Much more early access to the game = more
