What is this "real life" you speak of? :lol:


I think it's that thing where you sleep under a cubicle, have nerf gun wars with your friends, occasionally skype with the family, and then bury your head behind a computer screen the rest of the time.. oh and have a slushie IV stuck in your arm.

Well, yes, but I was going for it. Got turned around along the way and was a bit too embarrassed to ask for directions.

Then I found myself here. Which goes to show that you can never trust a map.

Was that, by chance a map on an apple device running iOS 6?

Err...sure. <looks around shiftily> Sure, sure, that's what it was.

As an aside, I had no idea that the iPad maps were so problematic until I noticed my iPad report that I was about 500 meters south of the highway we were driving on, and driving in the opposite direction. At about 10 km above our elevation.

On topic, it's possible to opt-in EoF beta in the game properties on Steam by checking password after leaving the password field empty. It doesn't seem to do anything, there are no downloads or anything of the sort, it's just that you can opt-in.

OMG, Mecron left a red herring!

I was just getting ready to purchase SOS 2 Enhanced from Steam when I found this thread - is the beta still available, and if so, how can I get in on it?

You must have a paid copy of the game to use the Beta forum.

Also there is no beta testing for the enhanced now. All done! Once you have the game, updates will periodically released in beta for for a few days and during this, the beta forum will be open.

How do we link a paid copy of the game to the forum? Every time I try to access it, I am prompted for a beta password.

Understood - I took a leap of faith and bought the game yesterday anyways. Hope to see great things in the coming months.
