Default Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising pre-beta test sign ups

If you haven't watched the trailer to this game yet, check it out. The game looks like it has great potential and looks like one of the best games coming out in the near future.

Joint Operations Trailer

What is it?

NovaLogic are inviting a number of gamers to take part in a closed multiplayer pre-beta test of their new game, Joint Operations™: Typhoon Rising™. Participants will initially play a one level team-based multiplayer map. Full details of the level to be played will be announced the day the test goes live. This pre-beta test will be ongoing and different features may be added and tested over time. THIS TEST IS NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF THOSE FEATURES THAT WILL BE IN THE FINAL GAME.

Who can take part in the pre-beta test?

You must be over the age of 13 to take part. Also those that sign up should have the following minimum system requirements:

P4 400 MHz Bus or Athlon 266 MHz Bus 1.4 GHz or Faster
128 MB AGP Video Card
512MB Ram (PC133 or Faster)
Microsoft DirectX 9+
Participants will also be required to accept our typical Non Disclosure Agreement as well as accept and adhere to our End User License Agreement. These will be sent to you if you are successful in getting a place on the pre-beta testing team.

How do I sign up?

It’s simple. You will have access to a sign up link on this site from 8pm (GMT) on Monday, November 3rd onwards. This link is due to come down on Friday November 7th, 2003.

If I sign up am I guaranteed a place in the pre-pre-beta test?

There is a limit to the number of ‘first round’ beta testers. However, if you are not successful this time round, we may be recruiting more beta testers in the near future. If you are chosen at this time we’ll contact you via email. Also a public multiplayer demo is slated for release in January 2004, so you will get a chance to experience the game first hand then.

If I get a place on the pre-beta test, how will I get the game?

If you are successful in getting a place in the pre-beta test you will be informed by email prior to the beta test commencing. This email will contain the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and an End User License Agreement (EULA) that you must accept before taking part. Once you have done this you will be given further instructions about getting the code.

How can I give feedback on the pre-beta test?

After you have taken part in the test there will be 2 ways for you to give us your feedback through our community site www.novaworld.com. Once you have logged on to this site, you will have access to a questionnaire that should only take about 5 minutes to complete. We are also setting up a closed forum on our community site for you to discuss your experience with other testers as well as give your suggestions & comments.

Ok, I signed up...but just so I can school y'all in how to play 3d shooters.
[SIZE=1][I]"It was very important to us that NVIDIA did not know exactly where to aim. As a result they seem to have over-engineered in some aspects creating a power-hungry monster which is going to be very expensive for them to manufacture. We have a beautifully balanced piece of hardware that beats them on pure performance, cost, scalability, future mobile relevance, etc. That's all because they didn't know what to aim at."

I like the water effects if those are representative of what may end up in the final release.

Here are some in-game screenshots.

Of course a screen shot can't demonstrate the fluid movement of water. Joint Operations is a Nvidia "The way its meant to be played" game, I'm sure it will have some of the good pixel shader effects for the water.

A multiplayer demo is scheduled for January, so even if you don't get into the beta test, you'll be able to try out the game long before it comes out to see how good it is.
