CryoFall - Closed Alpha Test 2
« on: June 18, 2017, 09:31:01 pm »


It's been quite a while since our last test. Last time the information we were able to gather proved invaluable and given how much the game has progressed in these several months we feel that we need to repeat it.

So, with that post I'd like to announce our second closed alpha test for CryoFall.

As before, each of these milestones is a huge step for us towards completion of the project! :)

The aim of this test is to:
* Get general feedback about all new additions into the game.
* Specific feedback about new important mechanics such as skills and tech tree.
* Possible general suggestions about future additions and roadmap for new features.
* Also to identify and fix any possible bugs that might be present.

Please note that:
* For now we can only provide a build for Windows, because other builds are still in development and will not be available until the actual release.
* The game is not even in alpha. It is still an early development build, so many of the basic features are still missing.
* You will need an Internet connection to play the game as CryoFall is designed for a multiplayer experience.


How to participate?
1) If you have already taken part in previous test - you are already set! Just download a new client when the test is live and join the server. No need to do anything extra. We will announce it here, so, please ensure you're subscribed to notifications from this topic - press "NOTIFY" button at the top of this page.
2) If you are new - you will need to apply to be a part of alpha testers team. Please fill in the form below and post in this thread.
You will be provided with an activation code for the alpha test of the game. To activate the access code you have to have an account on the AtomicTorch site. If you still don’t have one, create it here: https://atomictorch.com/Account/Register.

Either way, please read this guide just in case: http://forums.atomictorch.com/index.php?topic=913.0

Application Form
Location - Country and city or at least a general region where you are (mostly to understand your ping)
Hardware and OS - General information about your rig and system
Internet connection - Type and speed of your connection
How much time can you dedicate - Just how much time can you spend on that and when are you usually free, your time zone (e.g. everyday on late evenings PST)

I'd love to test it, but i will have to wait for Linux. Last time the launcher didn't run at all under WINE when i tried.

Hello there again :)

I do not know where to post things and bugs and such about closed alpha 2.
It is a bit confusing as there does not seem to be a dedicated thread.
(there are even closed alpha applications in this thread)

Also, the launcher does not write any logs into its logdirectory which
makes the next thing even worse: after pressing PLAY all i get is a black window.

In more detail, i re-downloaded the launcher a few days ago,
deinstalled the old alpha version,
installed the new version (0.95),
Checked all the buttons and options (as usual, squirrely me, teehee),

Often games lock their logfiles while running, but in this case, there isn't even any file at all.
Not while playing, not after playing (i use the term "playing" here very loosely,
since i just sit in front of a black window.

Tapping, holding (or even caressing) [ESC], [ENTER], [SPACE] does not help.
The clioent briefly (4Kb) reads data and then quietly dies.
The launcher does not do anything either, No downloads, read nor write acesses.

(edited for more clarity and to remove the vomiting smiley, i fell for it again)

Alright °blushes°

Game logs are at C:\Users\%1\AppData\Local\AtomicTorchStudio\Launcher\Games\CryoFall\Logs\
Launcher logs are at C:\Users\%1\AppData\Local\AtomicTorchStudio\Launcher\Logs\
NOT                        C:\Users\%1\Documents\AtomicTorchStudio\CryoFall\Logs\
(i am guessing the second location is a remnant from closed alpha 1, IF so, such should be deleted by the de-installation)

The Log: https://pastebin.com/gGDb8CJ8

@MenschMaschine, do you have .NET Framework 4.7 installed? Web-installer https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=55170 It's required. Perhaps that's why the game cannot launch.

If you have .NET 4.7 installed and the game still don't run, please open a new forum topic specifically for reporting this bug.
You could launch the game client directly from C:\Users\%1\AppData\Local\AtomicTorchStudio\Launcher\Games\CryoFall try it and the upload all the logs from this folder and share the link. We will check.

Yes, it's definitely looks like you don't have .NET 4.7 installed. I hope it's the only issue :-).
