As you release BAB #2, BAB #3, ..., do you anticipate releasing patched versions of earlier games -- thereby keeping the entire series in feature (and bug-fix) sync?

We are trying to complete it by the end of August, and need to ramp up the testing in order to reach that goal. So if you think you might like to be involved, please go to this webpage and register: http://matrixgames.com/beta/cnda.asp?gid=505 (I should note that Matrix lets in new testers periodically in groups, and will be doing so in the next few days. So if you register later in the week and don't get in that would be why.) As I like to tell potential testers, everyone can make a contribution, because there are different types of testers: some love to look for historical inaccuracies, some want to find bugs, others focus on game-balance issues and quality of play, etc. We welcome any and all sorts.

If you have any questions about the game I would be happy to respond. Thanks!


Gil, any update on the status of game and/or testing?
August is just around the corner.

Adding new testers should have happened last week but there was some technical glitch at Matrix that got in the way. As far as I know, now that it's Monday new volunteers could be given access at any moment.

We're still hoping to have the game ready in a month -- our target deadline does remain the same.

I've just been told that the glitch wasn't straightened out, but tomorrow looks good. So anyone who volunteered to test should hang in there a bit longer...

We are swinging in the breeze. :)

No longer swinging, have the game.

Any other Beta testers out there?
We need to make ourselves a list and get some PBEM going.
This thread is good as any to use so just make a post here if you have it and available for some games.

I've got it and working my way through a small scenario now. Be ready to try a PBEM next week probably.

That won't be a problem. They plan a new update that will make any saved games unusable so best to wait until after that. Let me know when you can start a game.

Build is posted so go ahead and pick something out and send it on. Not sure if PBEM is working correctly yet but we'll give it a whirl. You can send it to nelmsm (at) nts (dash) online (dot) net

What kind of problem?
Just in case you don't be sure you have a username/password for the Matrix Forums before you try to register of Beta. The Forums are separate from the Matrix web site login.

Did you sign up to beta-test, get approved for testing, receive the serial number, and you are now having trouble registering your version of the game? Or have you somehow been unable to sign up to test?

Please feel free to e-mail me, at gil123@west456-civ789.com, deleting the numbers from that e-mail address.

Hello again.

I am pleased to announce that "Brother Against Brother" is very close to there being an announcement of its release date. (I am not supposed to announce the date, but I violate nothing by saying an announcement is close...)

This means that we are making our final push on testing, especially PBEM, so naturally I thought of coming back here to see if anyone else might be interested. In reviewing the thread I was reminded that there were issues bringing people aboard, but I've been assured by Matrix Games that if there are more volunteers they'll be added ASAP (as soon as Monday). If you're interested, please refer to my first post in this thread. Thanks!
