Working link? I think not. It will not accept a UDID in caps, which the way it comes from every app I have tried. Maybe they don't really want play testers. Boy, that was snarky! Just would like to play test the game.

Sorry you are having problems. Apps are not able to report your UDID correctly. The way to get your UDID is as per the instructions on the sign up page.

Apple for some reason changed it so apps cannot see your UDID in a recent OS update and now report a bad value which does not work. Go figure...

I have been following this game for months. Any news when will the game finally be released?

Hi. What if Slith already has your UDID? My laptop seems to refuse to download the new iTunes update, so I can't see my UDID anymore

I beta tested Fortress Metz and Panzer Corps, would love to try CTGW

I have PMed you what we consider to be your UDID. We frequently flush beta devices due to the 100 device limitations Apple places on us.

The UDID app available free on the Appstore works but delivers all alpha characters in upper case. Your beta sign up page will only allow lower case alpha for the UDID. Consequently I had to retype my UDID into lower case. This retyping allowed me to sign up for the beta programme a few minutes ago.

I can only hope I retyped the UDID correctly.

Thanks Pip! When I went to go finalize the application, it told me I had already done so. So I assume you guys added me just in time :D

You need to follow the directions on the page.

Dear Pip,

Thanks for the information. To be sure I had done it correctly I returned to the Great War beta test sign-up page. Unfortunately, possibly due to the fact that I had already signed up a couple of hours ago, it did not give me the instructions on UDID, instead it enrolled me for a second time into the beta programme. So I might now have signed up for the programme twice! It is probably best if I now quit whilst I am behind. If I am lucky enough to be chosen to participate in the beta programme I will sort out the UDID with you then.

Regards,

Steve.

Hi guys

if your UDID is upper case or it starts with FFFFFF or ffffff then it is not a valid UDID. It needs to be 40 characters long, all lower case and not start with a bunch of f's.

We're hoping to kick off the beta very soon. Just waiting for the Lordz to finalize their apple account.

So this time selecting will be random instead of first come first serve?

Please tell me you will pick new people than you did with Panzer corps. I think the above poster was a beta tester for panzer corps. Please test this game on all levels. Peace out.

You're correct. You should have a mix of people from the PzC beta and new people into the mix

Any idea when the beta will be ready? Or is Apple being incredibly slow again?
