We appreciate the interest of course, but when the time comes, we'll provide a form for posting all this. Requirements we currently have decided on are having starscape, and having a board account. So you are ok on that score already Smile. After that, we will just be looking for a good spread of hardware.*




Although, if a nice lady sends us her pic it might sway us Wink

I gotta ask, what if we didn't re-obtain Starscape after reforming a harddrive?
What must we do to prove we once had a download version of Starscape?

We have everyones name, email address, swreg order records, etc all on file, that way we can always help people get Starscape working again if they lose it or whatever. So we never forget.

Yeah, But what is he going to do with it? I have a reasonable spam filter and NZ is half a world away from the UK.

Besides, How else are you going to get another copy of starscape?

Cool - that means I'll probably be eligible for beta testing though I haven't posted much on the boards. =) Well - I simply didn't see the need to do so. ^^ Nevertheless I followed all the Moonpod-News closely - I'm even subscribed to your RSS feed. :-D

Ah - and I've written a review of StarScape on a Polish community website. =)

When the time is ripe I'll send in my application with my rich testing resume - including being a GuildWars Alpha Tester (no more =).

Hmm, yes: On one hand, you bought the game (and being from Poland, that's a minor miracle, we haven't had many Polish customers Smile ), on the other hand, this page looks a bit suspicious. Scroll down and there seems to be an entry containing what was once a link to a Starscape keygen. Of course, I don't speak Polish, but it makes me a little trepidacious about letting you into beta. What do you think?

Your searching skills are amazing. =)

Well - I really haven't got any excuse for that topic and I won't try to talk myself out of it, but the fact remains that the keygen hasn't been around for long - the site (clan) you mentioned has a strong anti-piracy policy, which is quite rare in Poland. =)

On the other hand in this article (which is a review of the game Gish) I start with an introduction about StarScape in which I strongly encourage people to buy the game:

http://aie.pl/index.php?m=articles&a=view&id=443

=)

The thing with piracy/keygens/cracks in Poland is the following:

People really don't have that much money compared to other countries (yeah, yeah, you've heard that before =) and they simply can't afford to pay money for sth. that could turn out to be a bit on the bad side. In my case I treat such (pirated) games as a kind of extensive demo.

There are demoversions, that's true - but more often than not they do not encourage a person fully to buy the full version (look at the Gish demo (a game I have bought too) - it's awful in my opinion, they should've included more original levels to show the awesomeness of the game - had I played only the demo, I wouldn't have bought the full version at any chance).

In fact I buy all the games I like and delete all the ones I don't - that's why you wouldn't find a single pirated game or application on my computer - I think that the developers of good games (the games that appeal to me) should get their money - that's why I have paid for StarScape after all. =)

I know that my point of view might be quite controversial in other countries, but believe me - in Poland it's every day's business - and in fact all the people I know buy the games they like too - it's not as if we are a nation of pirates - we are just a nation of people, that don't have that much money (but still enough to buy a GOOD game every now and then). And I think that the fact that I have bought StarScape despite having access to some kind of keygens should prove my point. =)

P.S. I don't mind if you won't let me into the beta test, since I'll most likely buy Mr.Robot anyway - I haven't had the chance to follow the StarScape development cycle as closely as in the case of Mr.Robot, so I'm quite convinced so far that it will be a good game worth owning. =) By the way - I usually participate in beta tests mainly to improve the final product - getting a glimpse of a given game before anybody else is only an added bonus. I am known to find and submit many bugs - that's why I have been allowed to become a GW Alpha Tester after the first World Preview event during which I submitted dozens of bugs. I also participated in many other beta tests, though this might be a discussion for another day. =)

I must admit that I've tended towards the same philosophy of trying out games in their full state before purchase, though I've gone away from that now in favour of the convenience of demos. I come from Norway, which is basically on the opposite side of things from Poland, and if I look at the time I used to spend looking for and downloading full versions of games for "free" on the web, the free time lost and the electricity paid through entire weeks of constant computer up-time just wasn't worth it in the end.

With indie games, I've normally just played the demo and bought the full game ten minutes later.

I don't think the Polish pirate more than others, maybe with a better REASON than others, but not more. It's a shame, because some games really suffer from it. Ports of Call made almost no money even though a lot of people played it. Startopia is another one of those really well-liked games that was very vulnerable to piracy due to the already faultering sales figures.

I own StarTopia. :-D That game rocks!

The same applies for Psychonauts. I was really upset when I read on several gaming sites that its sales figures were so poor - even thought it received many, many awards - just for that reason one should buy a copy. And when you realise that this is a game from the same man who designed probably the best adventure game of all time, Grim Fandango, then you should think he deserves the money. =)

Reading this thread, I'm glad I bought the game ages ago (and hopefully it won't be a problem that I haven't posted on the board much lately - damn this schoolwork!)

Although I never bothered to reactivate Starscape after I upgraded my computer lately (again!)... this probably isn't the right thread and its probably been answered before, but how many keys do I get and what do I do if I need more?
