The Bard's Tale IV Update 47: The Backer Beta Has Landed!

Post by phimseto » July 12th, 2018, 8:53 am

In this latest update, we discuss all things Backer Beta!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/in ... ts/2236020
The backer beta is a big slice that takes you through the beginning of the story, introduces you to the game’s core systems, and then lets you go play in that world for a little while. Character creation and customization, combat, exploration, puzzle solving, and (of course) dungeon crawling all await you.
All that and more in the link above! Enjoy!

My impression is: I still haven't gotten information on how to join this.

I bought this back at the end of April.

Ah, bummer. No GOG, and Windows only.

Understandable, but I'll just hafta watch the rest of you play it.

Are you guys checking your CrowdOx surveys? I suggest hitting the "resend email" from the CrowdOx page. Link

I sure have. I haven't seen anything from them since I got the order fulfillment on April 24th.

Considering I've gotten their emails for the remaster download, etc., I'm confident I'm all set to receive the email for this.

But I can understand that some people are getting anxious with excitement. ;)

And you're not getting any emails from CrowdOx? I'm sure you've checked your spam filter already, but ........ that seems like a spam filter issue. When I hit the Resend Email button I get it almost instantly. To state the obvious again, make sure you're using the right email address.

Assuming that's not the problem, I'd email support@inxile.net and bear in mind they're probably swamped at the moment.

Also it may just be that the system is taking a long time to process sending out the emails ... it'd be surprising if it took hours and hours, but still a possibility at this point.

Actually, Paul M. worked with me on this. It turns out there's (for me) a problem on CrowdOX's end. It says my survey isn't locked in/complete...so it's not sending me the beta. It sends me everything else, but not the beta. He was unable to change the status himself, so he suggested I email hello@crowdox.com and see if they can get me fixed ASAP.

Yup. Sure can review my survey. Oh, and I can rate my survey.

Can't get a backer key, but I can certainly look at my survey.

You will need to install the Steam digital platform to get the beta working.
Once you have Steam installed you can activate your key via these instructions.

Am I missing something or are these taking a bit to get to everyone?

Patiently waiting, sort of.

You should be able to re-open your backer survey, add on beta access, pay the difference, and then re-confirm/close your survey, which should generate the code for you.

Once you reconfirm your survey, CrowdOx generates a new email with your rewards and sends it your way. It may take a bit, but it should arrive. Let me know if it hasn't later on.
