    I tried updating my Beta folder a few times last week and things behaved a bit oddly. I began to wonder if I was copying the old time locked beta or the new one. After I copied my current Pak and Music folders to the Beta folder and tried to run an update, it began overwriting a huge hunk of the files I had just copied to the folder. I am thinking it might be wise to wait until the patch is over this morning to copy PAK and MUSIC files over to the BETA folder and wait to run the update until AFTER they say beta is good to go........ This pains me because I have slow download time and all my characters are moving to Maj'Dul today. I should have thought to ask if the beta files available before this afternoon were the ones we want to download before the day beta goes live!

    We look forward to hearing your feedback about Terrors of Thalumbra and seeing you on the Beta server!

    Pre-ordering gives you immediate access to the Terrors of Thalumbra beta servers and Altar of the Ancients, a special housing item that grants daily XP gain. If you haven’t already pre-ordered Terrors of Thalumbra, you can do so here.[/quote]

    Is the Beta Server up? When trying to log in get can not find world Free Port then it skips to Connecting to Server .. (1) then just acts like it's stuck there?

    It won't be up til later today. Immediate access only applies after beta goes live.

    I don't see a new Beta sub-forum yet. When is that expected to debut?

    Has there been any word regarding the "Beta Rewards" that were being discussed? It was mentioned in the ToT livestream that there may be some like there were for previous betas. If there are I might just pre-order. If not, meh.

    For a limited time, during, and after beta, all participants will be able to give me lots of plats! That's the reward.

    Haha. Just kidding. It's not for a limited time.

    Yes it's up, but /beta is not working and still disabled.
    I feel naked with yellow gear on a beta-buffed character.
    So let us know when we can copy.

    you won't get the best feedback then since you won't have toons in as they will be or close to what they will be geared in to test it.

    So I created a Channeler beta character as that is what my current main live character is - and the Channeler Buff Box gives me chain armor, which not very useful to a leather-wearer. :p

    To patch and get into the Beta servers:
    • Open your station Launchpad
    • In the top-left corner, click the 'Version' link which will open the 'Select Game Version' panel
    • Choose 'Beta' in the drop-down menu and then hit 'Apply' to begin patching
    • Hit 'Play' once the patching completes
    i've done this and hit play and then i get black screen --- "EQ2 Client Application has stopped working"---:(
