Open Beta Released & Promo Video!

It's here! ESF open beta has now begun. While you download here is a short promo video showing off some of the features in the 1/6/06 build.

Low Quality - 12.3M

ESF open beta 1/6/07 - 234M
Half-Life2 Files
http://www.esforces.com/team/torrents/esf_openbeta_1_06_07.torrent


a couple things that should be kept in mind...

* The open beta is not complete. It is an exact copy of what the teams internal version look like on the day of release.
* Melee has NOT been touched.
* There are intentional exploits in place for testing purposes
* Advanced melee is currently disabled by default, it is very buggy, because most its animations are missing.
We do not plan on fixing this, since it will be replaced with a new system anyways. You can re-enable it using mp_simplemelee 1.
The same is true for Gohan's shield; it is very buggy and needs so much new functionality that we plan on completely redoing it.
Therefore it is disabled for now.


Bugs:

There is a possibility you have a slow download if you download from HL2Files. I believe myself there are a few problems with FileFront, so either download from a different download link such as using the Torrent link. Or wait until FileFront's problem is getting resolved.

I would recommend picking up on the torrent link. At the moment I'm seeding it and I have about 2MB/s of upload.

I also have put this file as "File of the week" on HL2Files, and I'll leave it like that for a while. So It should get a lot of downloads.

lol, didn't think it be out this fast. Well done! I plan on downloading it eventually. But dear god there are going to be soooo much people that don't deserve it. Yeah you can't help it, but I just have a feeling that, at first, a lot of the players will act to the etiquett-challenged players when EVM was released.

Oh dear, now I must also rework my Sonic models to fit new animations =(.

But on the positive side, the trailing dust when in a block struggle is a fantastic touch.

I submitted the news to Planet Half-Life, so they might have something on the main page sooner or later. I also made sure that I emphasized the fact that this release is not the final build.

I'm seeding 100 kb/s atm.

Btw, should the aura be only a few non-animated white lines while swooping?

Yeah, that's a temp model. I guess we should have said that somewhere... It looks like complete ****; it was just a test model since we wanted something different for the dash other than the aura.

OMFG I can't believe how fast the torrent is. I usually have to wait around 10 minutes for it to get up to my maximum speed of 32 KB/s. Yeah, I know, slow. :( But how did you guys do this? It seems like 1000 people dled this torrent judging from the speed.
