Beta Download in progress!
Go baby go!

Excellent! Muahahahahahahaha


Despite disliking the Alphas, the length of the Beta makes me dangerously cautious. Maybe it'll be good? That would make my day!

Son-of-a! I had the book pre-ordered and I didn't think of adding the pdf to my cart then I was sitting there anxiously watching my downloads page for it to appear after the site came back up.

I've gotten too spoiled with the subscriber stuff auto-adding the pdfs too.

-Tarlane

Edit: Hmm... I went back and added it along with swords to plowshares and the new argonauts as pdfs. They appeared in my downloads, but the beta didn't. I knew something was going to try and make sure I didn't get to flip through it before heading out on vacation tonight...

Is there any delay happening on it jumping to the cart, so that orders are staggered and the servers hold up better? Or was I just targeted by whatever gods or evil entities thought I would be fun to taunt today?

Secondary Edit: I am stupid and they updated the alpha. Thank you.

Bad part is once I DL it I have to go to bed (2.30am here in Australia).
I'm only still up 'cause right before I shut the computer down I loaded up Paizo and saw the "The Future of Roleplaying is Coming..." Screen and had to sit there hitting refresh for nearly an hour. ;)


Reading the Beta now.

Argh... The one chapter per file only has the back cover, but the other one is fine, including the web-enhancement.

Ya, the Web Enhancement was a nice surprise.

Hope the "One Chapter per File" gets fixed up soon!

Yeah, I noticed the small file size and switched... 89% AAAND Done, bye


475 pages... (web enhancement included) : pure delirium. are there major differences with Alpha 3 that I should look for ? Yes, I'm lazy... Guess the easiest way will be to create a character : a barbarian ?

I think I've tried to re-personalize the files a dozen times now, and both the complete version and the one-file-per-chapter version keep downloading as just the back page.

This is what I get for being on the front line to download the Campaign Setting. :(

Is there going to be a printer friendly version?

Its about the same price to print 408 pages and bind them as it is to buy the softcover Beta.

I'd recommend getting the softcover, its nicer than a printout anyway :)

Ahhhhh, I see what's happening. Give me a few minutes to fix it.

Got mine :D

OK, I've fixed the problem with the back page thing. You may need to sign out and sign back in, and you will need to repersonalize the file.


Already downloaded! Now reading to see what changes we need to make in our game to play test this version.

I can't wait for August 2009 for the Hardcover book.

Thats assuming you have to pay for printing your free Beta pdf. I have a nice big work printer that I can print on for free. Buying the softcover is something I am considering doing, but I like being able to print extra copies of sections, or just having a physical copy to playtest so I can determine if buying it is worth my time or not.

You have any idea how much it would cost you to print it out? Even as a black and white over at Staples? Much cheaper to just pony up.

Scarab Sages

Woo hoo! downloading now. something to entertain me at work this afternoon.

For me too! I've already had a quick look through. First impressions: excellent. Nothing jumping out to scream "WRONG" to me.

Now comes phase 2: readthrough. ;0)


MUHUEHAHAHAHAHA!

Awesome stuff.

Not much changed, though. Glad to have it all in one place, at least!

Since you failed to read the last response I gave to this very same suggestion, I'll state again that I have access to a printer that I can print on for FREE, thus a print friendly copy would be nice. Even if I wasn't planning on printing it, a print friendly copy would load quicker on my laptop as I flip pages. They provided the print friendly versions of the Alpha releases, so its not unreasonable to ask for the same now.


Okay this is amazing. Both good looking and wonderful reading. Now I can't wait to get my hands on the hard copy that will let my computers rest.


Hey everyone!

New poster here, just joined after downloading the Beta playtest and got to know more about Pathfinder after doing a little research.

I just like to say that the Pathfinder Beta looks awesome!

Scarab Sages

Hooray! Looks awesome, I'm trying to cram it all into my brain at once and keep flipping around to look up various random bits as they spring to mind.

ps, I've found that the one-file-per-chapter version works well if you load each chapter PDF in a new Firefox tab, then bookmark the set of tabs and voila - easy to load them all at once and easy to flip back and forth as you want to look up various random things. Much easier than switching between Adobe Reader windows, anyway :D

Dark Archive

YES!!!!!!!!!

I've finally had time to download and read it!!

Life is GOOD!!!

If you are going to have all of the chapters open anyways, why not just have the full version open in Adobe? I'm unclear what the advantage is there.


Mine keeps asking me for some password. I don't get it?

Something odd is going on.

P.S. I keep getting this message;

"Please enter the Document Permission password to remove the restrictions."

Can anyone help me?

I can look up or cross-reference stuff in different chapters without losing my place in each chapter, which is nice if you're prone to doing a lot of flipping around in different sections.

Not to mention it cuts down on the time spent scrolling/paging up/down. You just click the tab of the chapter and then start scrolling.

See now thats odd, because for me, having a pdf open in Firefox slows my computer down. Oh well, whatever works best for you.

*Still waiting and hoping for a print-friendly version.

Hm, are you using the latest version of both Firefox and Adobe Reader? If not, you might try updating both to see if that helps.

I'd suggest you try either:

1) repersonalize and redownload the Beta
or
2) Update your Adobe Reader.

Or use Foxit Reader at http://www.foxitsoftware.com/ . Make sure it is Version 2.3 (NOT 2.2). Adobe, especially Version 8 brings my machine to a crawl. Foxit is a faster, lighter PDF reader that works great.
