Somebody should notify that Fereed guy from Reddit who does the transcripts of Josh's Q&A streams.

Notified. Fingers crossed.

If anyone in this forum is going to stream or upload video stuff about beta, will, if be so kind, leave a comment here? Or even better open a thread? Because I know you're gonna do it way better than Elloheim :)

The first thing i notice is that characters actually talk/shout alot during fights. Is there a frequency slider for that?

I was hoping for more portraits, this time around. I assumed there would be a bit more than 20 new portraits, considering there are 18 backer portraits to start with, according to the Fig page.
 
What gaps were there in the original lineup, anyway? Does anyone know?

Yes, there is a slider, and it's shown in the video.

I wonder if the new portraits are coming with the new POE1 dlc update today. So maybe there will be more in the beta

The new DLC will include new portraits, including some backer portraits.

It's shown in Obsidian's stream, by the way, not in the Ellohime's stream.

It's likely they don't have all the portraits in yet. Maybe they're still working on a bunch of them? *shrug*

They're still working on some backer portraits, at least.

A couple of questions if someone knows.

 

Any idea what time the beta's gonna be released? How will obsidian communicate how to access it? By e-mail?

There is already a stickied thread in the backer beta section of the forums that explains how to access the beta.

 

 

Regarding the specific time, we don't know yet, but I'm guessing it will be sometime during the night, Central European Time. Probably while we Europeans are sleeping, as that is when everyone at Obsidian is awake and working.

In the character screen and preview of the character. The background seems an empty vacuum. But it would be great if we actually see the background of their current position. Otherwise put some nice preset background for character preview will be great. Another thing i like if we can actually change the color or skin of the character sheet. It's currently yellow but it will be great if the color can be changed or there are certain skins to beautify the yellow menu note book. Or they can follow the same theme skin like the main screen? (Ellohime stream)

Agreed on anyone who is going to stream the backer beta to post a link here. Oh and bonus points if you don't put a box around your head during the stream and cover up part of the game world like buddy did last night.

Streamings are good but even better are youtube videos - focused and compact. Ashen Rohk already is doing a great job, I suggest non beta testers check his channel out
