    You mean members as in regular paid members, or just free accounts? Noticed you said Founders Club, which I did have a subscription there.


    Edit, do you have any kind of direct link, I can't find it.

        I just love FP, even when your subscribed you get ads for subscribing, very deceiving.

        So I re-signed up for Founders club, and I don't think my original subscription has expired yet, but wasn't sure because I cancelled it, so..still says keys have all been distributed.

          Well, you're certainly not going to get well written bug reports from the testers, but if you've got some automated code capturing info and uploading it, well, you've got some serious compatibility data there.

            I wish they put betas and such into some sort of open GPL license, so orgs like FilePlanet can't make money off of it and so we can actually test the product and so it's isn't limited to just those who can afford their subscription fee.

            How many more key distributes are there left? And are they going to offer more keys to non-subscribed users?

              Theoretically, batch 4 usually has been for non-subscribers.

                Yeah I have been thinking over the months on to just stop subscribing because of when they have the closed forums and feedback just doesn't get sent in.. I sent in dozens of emails about the GRAW2 beta's and bugs was still into the game 1 month after release and was fixed.. I try to bug hunt for beta's but its the 95% just want the sneek peek

                  Damn, second batch still says coming soon, I was hoping I didn't miss it, but now I'm wondering if they are going to release a second batch today.

                      I think a lot of that has to do with the developer more then fileplanet. The Company of heroes opposing fronts closed beta via fileplanet got plenty of dev attention and they have made changes based on tester suggestions.

                      From my admitted limited experience, very few developers use "beta testing" for anything more then paid advertising for their game in the case of fileplanet. (I'm guessing fileplanet pays the developer to get "closed beta rights".) I don't know all the in's-and-out's of game development, but I'm fairly sure blaming fileplanet isn't laying the blame at the proper place for ignored bu g reports.

                        I have been a Founder club member for years.. I love Fileplanet, the DL speeds I get from them are fabulous.. BUT they ALWAYS release these Keys in the middle of the day.. and I always get the email after the keys are gone. It is true they never get good feedback from the people who get the keys, because those peolpe who get them, just use them for a sneek peek, and then uninstall the demo.

                        Really sad... They should ask people to apply for the Keys.. Giving a good reason for wanting the Key.. Not just giving them out to the first 100 people who are sitting at home(or at the office) with nothing better to do.
