So; after a busy week with real life and such I've finally managed to spend a few hours today trying out the PTR and here is a quick list of my experiences: First login attempt: Experienced the 98% loading glitch and was forced to close the game down. Second login attempt: Experienced the 15% loading glitch and was forced to close the game down. Deleted the Useroptions.ini Third login attempt: Loading into the 'null' gameplay screen and was forced to close the game down. Verified the came contents. Fourth login attempt: Actually loaded into the game - I immediately tried to warp to Indar from Esamir. Game CTD with a standard windows 'program error' window. Fifth login attempt: Game loaded, character selected, game crashed with standard windows error. Sixth login attempt: Experienced the 98% loading bug again, game crashed and I received one of the G errors but I didn't check which one. Seventh to Tenth login attempts: Game loaded, character selected, game crashed with standard windows error. Eleventh login attempt: Actually loaded into the game, spent all my certs to tech out my ESF, flew around, killed two gentlemen, suicided and logged out. Deleted the character and had a more careful check of some of the cool little functions available on the PTR. Bought the obviously unimplemented Max Transport mode for 9999 certs which didnt work - logout and delete character. Created a new character, game crashed when I clicked on the Suit slot in the loadout menu. Twelfth to Fifteenth login attempts: Game loaded, character selected, game crashed with standard windows error. Sixteenth login attempt: Started new TR character, loaded into game fine, bought a load of things with certs, game crashed when I clicked on the Suit slot in the loadout menu. Seventeeth login attempt: Wise to this cycle now I deleted my original character and created a new one, as that seems to prevent my insta-crashing to desktop. Tried to warp to Indar from Esamir, game crashed, standard windows error. Eighteenth login attempt: Created a new character again, did not try and warp anywhere, did not try and equip a new suit cert. Started moving around in an ESF for a few minutes. Random CTD, standard windows error. Nineteenth login attempt: Logged in to the old character, I'm sick of making new ones. To my surprise it logs in. Really want to see new Indar, try and warp, CTD. Twentieth login attempt: To my joy it loaded me onto Indar! I immediately start looking at the map, identify a place to go, mark it, hop in an ESF. Mid way there, CTD. That about sums it up. I wish, I really wish I was exaggerating with all this. Haha, good joke right? Nope, my sum total 'play time' probably cranks in at approx 20 minutes but contains only 2 kills in a beefy ESF against two ground-pounders. There's some really cool additions to the PTR I like the new loadout screen for Infantry I love the new map additions, flashing icons for gen and scu down, ally activity indicator. I like the new restock '+' on grenades at the loadout screen But the fact that I didn't get to play longer than a few minutes at a time is pretty disappointing. I have no real idea how bad my ping is connecting to the US servers from the UK but I will say that the late testing stints will alienate most of the UK + Europe from participating mid-week. And any that might turn up for the 7pm test this evening won't be including me as I can't get the damn thing to work. I've tried to pinpoint what I was doing at the time of the crash as it didn't seem likely to me that I'd manage to do it in game, but several times I just CTD whilst doing nothing but moving around. Hopefully SOE can stabilise it for some future testing.
