OpenD6 Update Thread

Recommended Posts

I hope to do testing in what will essentially be 3 phases...

 

1) Alpha - a small handful of testers recommended by hellsreach, plus hellsreach and myself

2) Closed beta - Open the site up to a couple more handfuls of people, likely by request (from here)

3) Open beta - This will be the site launch. We're going to consider it in a "beta phase" for a while until the kinks get worked out.

 

In terms of the closed beta, if you want to be a part of it, shoot me a PM so I can have your name for later contact.

Any movement on the PDF updates?

 

Having the PDF version of 51005 would be of great help.:pl:

 

Not being pushy or anything :D

 

Thanks

Rick

 

They were at Gencon. I'm guessing lots of things are being sorted out after getting back.

That's what I figured, but gamer patience being what it is, I thought 'd ask.

 

Next I'll start threatening family pets. :P

 

@The87

I just want to say thanks for all the work you've put in to Open. I'm recently returned to d6 and Open is the reason, so thanks.

Again, thank you all for your interest. I have all of your PMs on file and will not forget about you.

 

Right now, Hellsreach and I are putting a lot of time and effort into getting the servers up and running. As soon as we are ready for testing, I will be sure to contact those who have reached out to me.

Keep up the good work guys! We're all very excited to see the new stuff for Open D6, and I can say that I'm sure we're going to devour it as soon as the servers are online. :thanks:

Eric, given that the official release date was suppose to be about a month ago is it beta worthy yet? At the very least are there any updates on the server progress? Not trying to seem impatient, we all appreciate the hard work put into it, we'd just like to start getting a feel for putting data into the OpenD6 database. If nothing else you could release the source since it's all open, it might even lead to some savy computer sciences specialists that play lending a hand. Thanks again for everything guys.

Again, where we ended up getting caught up was with the servers.

 

That said, the servers are about ready to go so we will be able to start beta testing shortly.

As a casual fan, who hasn't followed this from the beginning. I would suggest that you put all the open D6 books in an easy to find area. Like putting all the links in a stickeyed post at the top of the forum section. Becuase I had a lot of trouble finding the links to the books. And if Hellsreach reads this, is there a way to put the links on the front page of the main website? Because that would be best.

This, still, would be better to be posted on the WEG site itself. A shame that the most recent news on the companies own site is now almost a year old. Even part-time that should be a quick thing to fix up each month.

Agreed. I'd have thought getting more Septimus news and the Open D6 links posted would have been a huge priority after returning from GenCon last August.

 

Hopefully it'll happen soon - it would be good to have all of that on the official West End Games site, I think, from a standpoint of public perception.

I contacted the RPGnow.com customer service to ask about this. They contacted WEG and WEG told them that these links are not authorized by WEG and are illegal.

They are hosted by the owner of West End Games. How can the owner of the company be illegally hosting his own products?
