I relize you guys probably get this all the time, you hate when its asked and hate when even talked a bout, but may I become a tester for FH2. I'll be willing to give part of my time to help in the development/testing of the mod. Please just let me know on this thread. Thank You. * Sorry if I posted it in the wrong thread. Was having login problems and could only make a thread here.

Don't worry this is the right thread. But, The FH Devs don't usally accept applications, usally you are picked. Being a beta, is more or less, earned. But if you hang around and are productive you may have a chacne :D

Sorry, but you can't become a beta tester because you want to. FH devs or other beta testers don't know you so it would be risky to employ stranger. Also note that many other memebers of these forums would like to beta test for FH, and they're here since months if not years. But we can't have too many beta testers too. First due to maximum ammount of players in game, second, someone could reveal FH content. Just stay here, proove that you're reasonable person, good memeber and maybe they'll pick you up. But you can't become a beta testers by asking if you could.

I don't think its got anything to do with how long you have been on these boards for or how good a person you present yourself to be, I think its all down to who you know or what you can do for FH. When Beta Testing the Fan Map I knew some of the guys from FH Forums but a large chunk I had no idea who they were and were either sporting a BFE tag or were part of a clan like LSD or FTN. I suspect in the case of a clan one guy gets a spot then gets his buddies some slots and in the case of BFE I know they were chosen by high command, as BFE offered to help test FH.

In short unless you have something you can give FH like a map, some coding skills, modeling skills etc your chances of being picked are almost nothing.

Well there were lots of temporary testers to get the mappack maps tested on a full server. I think the way testers are selected works, as far as i know there has never been a version leaked to the public. But yeah there are alot of guys that have modelled for and/or made fan maps for FH in the tester team, others like me are just lucky.

Most of these guys were temporary like Elgarinion mentioned. Many beta testers are also registered on these forums, they jsut don't post so much or not say anywhere about their beta tester position.
