    Well, tbh I'd prefer a single player beta but I'm so desperate to try this game out that I signed up.

    I'm DLing right now. What a nice surprise today. Just installed my new GPU and the beta comes to test it. Pennies from heaven.

    I put in my computer specs and I do not have the right system to play :(

    I bet it's because I don't have SM 3.0.

    Mine's fluctuating a lot, too. :) Anywhere from 162K - 250K on Cable.

    EDIT: Son just stopped playing Halo 3 for a moment and my d'l speed has jumped to over 600 KB a few times now. :)

    The Open Beta seems to have been closed. Congrats to those who got a key.

    Anyone else having serious artifacts in the game?

    Also, I can't get AA to work at all. Tried everything possible so far other than to tweak the .ini.

    serious artifacts is a massive understatment. im also haveing problems with the game freezing on loading a map, and freezing when exiting the game.

    tons of fun so far...

    Has anyone been able to play it yet, beyond the bugs and stuff. I tried for a minute this morning, but couldn't connect to a server. Worse yet, I can't read anything at the beta forums.

    I think its pretty decent. Large map, beautiful environment, nice shading and lighting. The water looks great too. Can't wait for the full single player.

    I probably shouldn't say this because of the NDA but who cares. I thought it was ******************************************************************************* ******************* ***************************************************************************************************************** and *****************************************************************************but that's expected cause it's a beta.

    There is an aa bug in this , disable aa and put the shader settings on high, should help with the artifacts.

    If you have an nvidia card, it's worth using nhancer to set up a profile for this game and set everything using the profile.

    AA kept turning off for me when I had everything on high but I still got all kinds of texture issues.
