Hi guys

we're pleased to announce a new expansion! Fortress Metz has been in development for some time and is near completion and we'd like to add a group of new testers to the post to help complete the game.

Noe experience needed, just a desire to play the game and help us improve it.

You can find out more about Fortress Metz here:

Maybe but only if you are already signed up or added via another iPad beta. We are limited by apple in how many UDID's we can add unfortunately and its a very low limit.

No I am not. That's a shame. Thank you for the reply.

Just a thought I am doing some Beta tests for ERommel for his modified MP game Wacht en Rhine. I don't know if that makes any difference. Thanks anyway.

The iPad beta is very exclusive, but it's very well done! I have not yet experienced any problems!

probably a dumb question, but I've signed up for Metz Beta, how will I know if/when I'm selected? Email?

This is your first time testing right :D? Yes you get an email with all your info provided when selected.

How does someone go about signing up as a beta on the official releases for future reference.

Hi Pip

I think the issue is that myself and Protective are both armed with IPads. Shame really as I recently read an article from your company where they were discussing how Ipad sales were rocketing.

Unfortunately we are limited by Apple policy to a very small number of testers that we are allowed to use. So for iPad we tend to work on a more informal basis. We are always happy to hear from people who want to beta test iPad games, but as I say, we have limited space.

Cheers

Pip

I received an email saying that I had been selected as a tester for Fortress Metz. However, I only test games on the iPad at the moment and I could not find out how to access the iPad version of the Metz expansion.

can anybody enlighten me as to how i obtain the beta version for iPad?

Thanks in advance.

Honestly it's pretty ad-hoc on the iPad because of the limited number of devices we can enable, and the hassles of adding new people and doing new builds. We probably need to make it clearer on the signup screen whether iPad testers are included

Cheers

Thank you for your reply.

So, I believe that you are saying that I will be unable to obtain a version for my iPad.

If at some point you do require extra testers for the iPad version, please let me know and I will be happy to test the Metz expansion on my iPad. I regularly play Battle Academy on my iPad and so I am very familiar with it.

Good to know - thanks! Yes, it's unlikely at this point, but jump in early on the next BA beta :)
