Chris has been answering lots of questions about the Multiplayer Test lately. Here's all the latest Q&A's:Generals Bunker has been looking through the Official Generals Message Boards, and has found several posts by Chris (Delphi). Here they are:
Q: Have the webmaster's already been selected?At WestwoodMW Aromanov asked Delphi if Generals will be at Cyber Cafes like Renegade was.
A: They have already been selected and will be notified before the test begins.
Q: What about a list of sites?
A: Like the next game being developed at WW, my list is a closely guarded secret.
Q: How will us forum members get in the beta?
A: There will be a random drawing of reg numbers to determine who will get into the beta from the boards. I have yet to determine the number of slots. The members will be announced before the beta sign-ups though. Also i will be giving away slots at the Game Spy chat.
Q: Will the webmasters know before the chat?
A: No, they will know before the sign-ups though.
Q: How will we get sent it?
A: CD's will be mailed.
Delphi: Yes it will. =) Generals FTP has had a short Q&A as well:
GenFTP: Will the game be "correctly" playable for 56k users ?Also, Morpheus from Statik Vision asked Harvard Bonin a few questions. Here's the first of them:
Delphi: Yes. =)
Morph - What kind of online modes will there be in Generals (Battle, Meat Grinder, Co-Op, etc) You can read another three questions here.
Harvard - Presently we have TEAM (2vs2, 3vs3, 4vs4), QuickMatch(tm) tournament, non tournament, and free for all.
