As beta testers what information are we allowed to give out to non beta testers?

10 replies 10 views Edited Aug 8, 2003
I'm wondering this because I told one of my friends that I was accepted because I was just very excited. Now he wants to know alot about the beta test and everything. Would I be allowed to show him anything or would this be a breach of the beta contract. Should I have not even told him? I hope its not that strict and if it is please let it slide just this once.

well this game has been out in public (japan) so i dont think there's some sort of disclosure agreement. Some people even have bought it thru import.

I'm sorry, but now your going to have to return your beta for telling him about it.  You've completely ignored the terms and conditions...

hehe just playing, I dont think there's any problems with that since the game has been out for quite some time already, more than 2 years.  It's basically the same as the import version except for the fact that it's in english this time.

you will definately have to be very very carefuly about what you tell people about the beta testing. there was the agreement that you first read when you signed up with all the info about what you can tell other people. i suggest you go to the gap page or beta test site and look for that agreement again befor posting sensitive material.

see everyone online!

I read the terms and conditions when signing up at the GAP site...it didn't say anything regarding NDA rules...or it probably did and i forgot...

I'm sure when we get the game next week there will be specific instructions on what can be said and what can't be said.

I don't think it really matters much at all.  Basicly I think they just don't want you giving away your Beta kit or the codes that come with it to play.

Other than that...there is nothing else that can't be already found on the internet because of the Japanese release.... and the english version will end up joining into the japanese version once it goes live so it's not like the US version has some new secret feature that would ruin the game if it got out.

Yes, I beta tested the Network Adapter. The kit will explain everything. All the rules and what your duties are as a beta tester.
