Anyone else in? I just started downloading it!
Should we set up a play test on it?January 21, 2010 at 11:42 pm #56017Finch_92Member
its taken 6hrs but its finally downloaded woohoo lolJanuary 22, 2010 at 12:32 am #56024
Had a bit of a play already.
Pretty fun, but the frame rate needs to be suited up. I respawned on the end of a jump ramp then had to respawn again! lolJanuary 22, 2010 at 12:41 am #56028Ratchet525Member
I had the beta for quite some time now. Its awesome but i dont play it anymore lol.January 22, 2010 at 12:44 am #56029
Really? Did America get a different beta? Because I believe this is the first beta Europe got?January 22, 2010 at 12:48 am #56033Ratchet525Member
I think we got it earlier or you just got to the party lateJanuary 22, 2010 at 12:49 am #56035
Wouldn't surprise me lol.
SCEE aren't exactly the best with content lolJanuary 22, 2010 at 7:03 pm #56094
yes, NA got the beta midway thru december, which lasted until midway thru january. It was pretty fun, when you're actually playing. Unfortunately the load times are kinda rediculous. If they fix it I might buy it, but otherwise there was so much loading that I felt it was gamebreaking. 50% of play time was loading. After every race theres a full minute wait before it even starts loading the next race, and then 1-3 minutes of loading, for a 5 minute race (if that). I made a few tracks, the editor is incredibly easy with a lot of depth, and I uploaded my first one, you should still be able to find it on the servers. Hopefully they already fixed a few things for this second beta round, cause it was definitely a little glitchy (I had the best lap on one race for the whole beta, with -.999 seconds).January 22, 2010 at 7:16 pm #56095PS3 TrophiesKeymaster
To be a racing game the framerate is terrible, almost unplayable. Also the loading times are very long. They defenitely need to sort this out before release.January 22, 2010 at 8:06 pm #56099
Agreed on the frame rate… As for the loading times, could that not be fixed with an install?
Also, the respawn points need work. I didn't quite make a jump and it respawned me at the very tip of a jump?!January 22, 2010 at 8:11 pm #56101

I didn't really have a framerate issue… but I've heard this from other people. It is laggy, and the network definitely booted me a lot! And I definitely glitched out on some jumps and walls a few times and got stuck, but luckily you can reset yourself with select. I really do hope they fix this issues (thats the point of a beta, right?) because this game has a lot of potential to be a real fun kart racer.January 22, 2010 at 8:19 pm #56102
Funnily enough, the frame rate's not bothering me as to the point that it affected my racing. I'm enjoying it and will definitely pick up the retail version.
The make your own mod and cart functions were really fun and racing with other people was fun too. Amazingly, they weren't dicks like they are over on Live lol.January 22, 2010 at 9:03 pm #56106
oh and I forgot to mention that I was pretty annoyed the friend invite function doesn't work in the beta. Its a lot more fun to playtest these games with friends, and check out eachothers creations, than it is with random kids.January 22, 2010 at 10:15 pm #56111parnakasMember
I loved the beta, had a lot of fun, great graphics, awesome style, and the creation tools were so cool! Will be getting this on release!
