Hi Gurluas,

It doesn't cost anything, but I'm afraid we're just testing with a small group of private testers at the moment. It's possible that we will hold a type of open (public) beta test relatively soon, though... or that the full 3.0 will be released relatively soon. I can't give specifics... it depends on what Valve does.

The only way to get a betatester, is to either do something very special for the community (Creepsworld for example, Svenco-op's number 1 porn site) or just be a regular or sometihng i guess

or have technical knowledge of the HL Engine so that when errors occur you can get HL to produce a log, or use dev mode and take a screenshot of an error for instants, then emailing the svencoop team with how you got the error and if you can get the error to happen again

Jup, as soon you are hanging around here for a long time and you earn some respect from the Developement team and they guess you know something about Half-life and testing then you can be a beta tester.

Ofcourse only the 1337-test of th@ 1337 become beta testers.

Hey... I`m a beta tester :)

I suppose it's better to wait for the stable version that doesn't crash every five seconds or so ruining your gameplay completely with multiple bugs and glitches... meh...

Who am I fooling... :(

Betatesting is semi-leet. Doing co-op maps alone is leet. :)

Yes its true its a unstable version. There are many bugs to fix, wait for the final. That would be really fun.

The beta testers are chosen by the team, we don't take applications. Anyone asking to test will certainly be ignored.

Oh my, Sven. I'd also like to be a beta tester.... But I guess Ignoring the e-mail I sent you about it a month or two ago already gave me the answer. OMG, KTHX.

ok. i did something very special - :) Im hosting maps for people on my website at http://www.hlrse.com/vhe or at http://hlrse.com/vhe if the first one doesnt work. I already have ONE person using my system. Also check the map showcase. The rating of it is 5/5 stars and they are starting to LOVE it. :P I'm soon hosting people subdomains.. :) for free....if you read my 2nd post i think of the topIc i made in Map showcase, it should have a link of what my host has given me. People are amazed and surprised that I only pay 10 dollars a YEAR for all that goodness. :-/ But I wasnt invited anyway. :P lol..

EDIT: and im DOING something special - im collecting SC files for the HL-Fileshack because im da SC File Manager. :)

Yo sven viking, if you need me to host a file of yours thats an official released SC file, talk to me and I'll open a subdomain for you to upload your files to as a MIRROR.

(btw my website is on an OC48 connection)
