I'm surprised there hasn't been more feedback on this. I gave it a shot even though I've never been a fan of the Tribes series. It definitely has the same feel to do it so fans of the first two games surely will like it. But as for me, I'll be skipping this one.

I didnt play any of the Tribes series . maybe Tribes 2 a little but i didnt enjoy it.
this one - from the TV preview i saw - looks good , so i'll give it a shot .. i heard its using PS2.0 ??!

i am so stoked for this game - i hope they did a good job.

UT has finally started getting redundant, so i'm hoping for a long bout with this one.

let's hope the gameplay rocks balls...

The Open Beta version crashes constantly for me, but I have enjoyed it otherwise. This one should be good when it comes out.

I've downloaded it twice now from two different sites, and both exe's were faulty - i got a corrupted file alert both times from windows.

has anyone had this problem yet? is there a quick fix to it?
i got the exe off of reputable sites - Worthplaying/Fileshack.
both gave me the same message.
i'm using Mozilla Firefox to DL.

Wow this is the first anyone has posted of it? I was going to last night but i figured everyone already knew.

Ive had this since yesterday. Its not bad but the level is pretty stupid considering what the Tribes games are about.

In this demo, you are with a few fellow soldiers that have been captured and you are in some sort of arena tournament thing fighting the enemy soldiers.

uhh....DUH? Havent we been playing this same crap for the last 5 years? Tribes is about open landscapes and large scale battles, not arena deathmatch combat.

That said, it seems ok. Not great, but not bad. I just dont know why the hell they made the demo take place in an arena :confused:

in my folder it says 382.982 kb
which seems slightly bigger than 375 mb, ah?

i also got this one from a THIRD source - 3D Gamers.

so i'm completely stuck, and have no idea what to do to make it work.

there's a known bug in the MP beta where the game gets stuck when using an inventory station. the only way around it so far seems to be to use the shift key to change inventory. not sure if that is what you mean though.

hmmm...scratch all that about the demo unpack going bad...i removed the exe from my storage folder on a separate drive from my main drive, put it on the desktop and started it again, and this time it allowed me to unpack it and get through the setup.

strange...

.

well, i've played it three times now from three different restarts, and the only funky thing i've had happen was the tank ran over my player, killing him, and kept smashing me until i fell through the bottom and fell into the ether that just keeps going..

:)

the gameplay is pretty good though, this game seems like it's going to rock. i'm buying it, for sure...

I guess the known bugs depend on where you look (these might just be for the MP game though):There are several well-documented bugs in the beta.

INVENTORY CRASH BUG

This bug results in the game freezing or crashing when you attempt to use an inventory station. This is a known issue and is being addressed by the dev team. There is no definitive fix but one suggestion is to close any extra programs while running the game.

FAVORITES NOT BEING REMEMBERED

Some people are having problems with the loadouts not being remembered. A temporary fix is offered here: http://www.tribalwar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=318589

SERVER FILTERS NOT WORKING

Problems with the server filters are addressed in this thread: http://www.tribalwar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317608

SPEEDHACK BUG

Some players will find themselves frozen in-game due to faulty speedhack detection code. A server can disable this check thusly:

# Remove read-only attribute on the file /program/bin/default.ini
# Under [Engine.GameEngine] add EnableCheatProtection=False

More info on running dedicated servers here: http://www.tribalwar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317609

GETTING DROPPED FROM SERVER WHEN MAP CHANGES

Stat tracking and team registration are currently not enabled in the beta. Activating these features can cause you to be dropped from a server when a map changes. Fix: Under the Multiplayer Profile tab, leave Enable Stat Tracking and Enable Team Registration unchecked. (link (http://community.vugames.com/WebX?14@17.uPtFdigWMkf.0@.1dd8213e))

Okay, the game plays pretty well. Though, I feel that the level used in the SP demo is not really "Tribes". The AI is pretty damn convincing, it gets pretty tough towards the end of the match.

The new SP gladiator type game is pretty cool though. It definately does it better than any other future-arena type games. I like how the crowd react to your actions. The jet packs are on par with the other Tribes games, excellent. Graphics are on the whole good too, so is animation.

It's just too bad they didn't use a bigger level.

Haven't got a chance to d/l this one yet, still hooked on the MP demo. Been switching between it & UT2K4 for the past week or so. Can't wait till this game goes gold :cool:

So In your opinion, does it feel like a Tribes game? Or more like a Tribes mod on UT2k4 engine?

A tribes game? Sightly, "feels" more like a really good TC for UT2004. :angel: Maybe Epic 'll include it in UT2004SE? (j/k)

Btw, saw yer post in the other thread regarding the MSFU contest. Are you currently apart of a dev team working on a mod?

Thanks for the ifno I played and really liked the first Tribes game way back. When Tribes2 came out my PC did not have enough ump to run it right and even after I upgraded Tribes2 just did not feel as good as Tribes did. I had read in other forums were people felt that this version feels more like UT2k4 (not that its a bad thing mind you) vrs the old Tribes game. Soo being an old time Tribes player I was wondering how this was going to be. Had it not been for Hurricanes, MSU Deadlines and trying to finnish off Doom3 I would have tried it by now...I know I know I am slacking :)

Yes, I have been the team leader and lead coder for the ChaosUT serries of mods for the last few years. While Chaos was never the best mod, we have been around since the Q2 days and have been featured on 3 CDs now (ID's Q2 Extremities, GOTY UT 99 and ECE UT2k4) so we must be doing something right :) Chaos wont appeal to everyone. But we do take normal UT2k4 play and make it more...well... Chaotic, but in a good way :)

Mad kudos man!! :headbang: Would have nvr known, just thought you played UT a lot :p You guys have done some great work over the yrs. Chaos UT was one of my fav mods for UT '99, rocked. Only mod I've played for 2k4 has really been RO, will have to d/l the latest vers of Chaos later tonight :cool:

Where'd you guys come up w/ the idea? Was q2 not chaotic enough? :p
