    Rather than start a separate event thread, i'll hope folks catch it here: Let's do an open beta gathering in game and on teamspeak. I know this time won't work for our APAC folks, but I'm not sure they're jumping on the beta anyway so stay tuned, we could either move the time or have >1 session scheduled. Based on feedback I may change it up so check back here and if necessary i'll post another thread for visibility's sake. Holler in this thread if you plan to show or have an alternate proposal for some co-op time...

    Saturday Feb 25, from 1-4 pm, Pacific

    Saturday Feb 25, from 8-11 pm, Pacific (added session)

    BTW, it appears that the PC version of this will be digital download ONLY, no physical edition at all. Plan accordingly; it's about a 50GB download.

    I would not be able to make the Saturday time. Too late for me, as I would be gone to a friend's house. Now if you did like 9 am PST, I could make it, or 10 pm PST I should be able to make that one. But, early evening I'm already occupied on most Saturdays.

    Sorry Rhyus, lets see who else chimes in to justify either moving the time or coming up with a second session. or, you could PM me that you're organizing another session and I can add it to my OP in this thread so it's all in one place.

    I will be there! A bit later in the evening PST

    Preloads are up. If you didn't delete Closed Beta, it doesn't have to download as much. I honestly don't know how much it downloaded, but the directory is now 25.7 GB.

    I'm actually interested in this one. If I'm understanding right, It's like Tom Clancy's GTA with Saint's Row or Borderlands style co-op where you can just pop in and out of anyone's game?

    Pretty much. Tom Clancy's Grand Theft Auto: Bolivia.

    So, I got an email yesterday telling me about it. The subject of the email "Download the beta" or something around those words. But, there was nothing in the email to link me to the download page or to even bring up Uplay to download it. Eventually I got around to pulling up Uplay and just downloading it that way this morning. It should be good to go when I get home in about 4 hours or so.

    Heads up that I might not be able to make my own beta session or I might be late. I think I will just leave it scheduled, there's no special reason I have to be there to ensure that it happens. What I might do is add another session for later in the same day. I just have an aggro issue with the new woman - life of a med student is a bitch...but she goes to bed early when clinicals are the next day so my day won't be totally lost to non-gaming activity :p

    Ok, so I got in last night and played for about 3 hours or so. I really hope they have a lot of fixes already in the pipe, because in its current state, it really would not be playable in coop mode.

    Also, when I pick up a weapon from the ground, does it not unlock that weapon in my inventory?

    What changes would to be made? I had no issues running co-op with folks last night. No unfortunately picking up a weapon does not unlock it, wish it did though.

    I patched last night. I will definitely get some play time tomorrow. Because I am uncertain on my mid-day schedule, I'm adding a second play session for the evening. I may still make the first, take a break and do the second, but the first is in a little flux right now for me. I know the chick will go to bed early so second session is a lock for me.

    Saturday Feb 25, from 8-11 pm, Pacific (I will edit my OP as well to include the info)

    No, when you pick up a gun that does not unlock it in your inventory. You can use that gun until you die or fast travel, but can't mod it.

    To unlock guns, you have to find the Weapons Case that contains them. In this beta we only have a couple of the guns available to unlock.

    Well, last night I was playing with Aerlon711 and his brother. He would get into a vehicle, any vehicle, and it would start doing jumping jacks, drive through the terrain, go flying (a truck or car doing this). It was very hard for me to get into this vehicle because of all these things happening to it. And even when he wasn't in the vehicle, it would still do it. Hell, I fast traveled to him after he finished a mission and was looking around the place and one of the smaller helicopters that he didn't even touch was bouncing all over the base and I was running near it, it bounced towards me and killed me. Now, on his end, he saw none of these vehicles doing this. There was a lot of voice lag as well as normal lag.

    The other thing I don't like is that I HAVE to put one point into every single skill before I can put a second one in them. That is just stupid. I should be able to go up any tree solo if I want too.
