oh the anticipation.. its killing me..
It really seems as if everyone here has turned into a child, either asking childish questions or just asking questions just to ask them.
Wait for the beta to be released. WAIT. It's not that hard to do.
No when or how or where, but a big congrats to all ISI guys, and outsiders who helped out, and spending allot of time and effort on this title.
Exciting times for potential rf2 users, but also for the creators. People seem to forget that.
Hey Gjon (and Tim) This is John Tami from FB. Not really a modder, so not sure except having early access to test, if its worthwhile for me to participate. I have no problem paying for it, I trust you guys!
great ! Thanks for info!

I have complete and total faith in ISI, the beta process, and my own desire to try out RF2. As such I'll buy 10 beta's if need be (don't bill me on that ). I think everyone here (mostly) has no problem purchasing the beta, I know I certainly don't.
I'm from a systems development background, but I'm no modder. Hell, I'd have trouble skinning a darn car. But I can test drive till I'm blue in the face, I'll test drive till my shoulder's torn rotator cuff no longer rotates, and I'll test drive till the final release. During that process I'm sure I'll learn a bit more about the technicalities of modding in RF (downling pdf's as I type this). I am becoming immersed in RF2 and it's esoterica, and for me it's gonna be a learning opportunity. Oh yeah, I'm ready!!
Sometimes it seems we just go in circles...
so it's basically renamed from "Beta" to "Test version", in order to avoid random customers who pretend to buy the full game while it is still a beta if I got this right.
Smart move, title is always important. Hope we'll get our hands on rF2 as soon as possible
We are currently putting together a Modders test version of rFactor 2. The intent of this release is to receive feedback on the new modding process. At the same time we are testing the purchase system and online accounts.
If you are uneasy about purchasing a product without first being able to try it, wait until a demo is available.
"without first being able to try it" ? Maybe I'm a bit stupid or too anxious to get my hands on RF2 but this sounds like we won't be able to play immediately when the Test version is coming? (it also says that it is a modders test version to test the modding & the online purchase...). For me the wording is a bit strange...
I think you've mis-read it. With the beta, you download. PAY. Then you can play.
can we start testing this thing? Enough of building hype and giving exclusive content to this and that site I think ISI is starting to milk the beta release with this nonsense.
The RF2 version that is about to be available is for testing purposes. This is what a BETA version is. There will be bugs, issues to be fixed. The reason for open beta testing is so MOD makers can test the system. Everyone is able to pre-purchase and take part in testing.
As long as you understand, this is NOT retail ready, you will be ok.
