Due to an error on our side, Stage 0 was playable for only a couple of minutes earlier today.

No worries ^^
Well, it looks like something went terribly wrong.
It's named Alpha 0 for a reason! :) Be patience, we can dive within the next few days.
Maybe a tip, what about releasing The Swimming pool Module in waves? You can control the bandwidth more if you release it in waves.
Thanks for at least informing us. I can think of similar situations with other games where there was no info given by the devs (not you guys, obviously.)
NOOOOO I MISSED IT, WHY DID I HAD TO WORK TODAY :(
Oh well, I'll catch it the next time it opens up ^_^
Current status: working 2-10 really s*#k ^_^
Ironically I missed it playing another game lol x-x
Though doesn't matter. If they had to take it down, Im sure it was for a good reason ^^
I work from home on my laptop so I get to check the forums regularly all day every day since day 1 of the game, and I missed it too :(
Not me, I got a 8-4 (working 9-5 is over rated) job right now and two possible interviews for two different prisions to be a CO. But my name is on a waiting list so I won't know anything for sometime.
hmmm. mybe next week.
it was online at 17:30 GTM+1 (dutch timezone), i stumbled upon it.
Actually it was better then I expected :)
It won't take long before they throw it public I guess
We are all just jealous you got to try it out. I have been patient this long, a couple more days won't hurt.
Yeah but still it would be great to play it
Sooo clooose nooow : D
Will there be a non-disclosure agreement for the pre-beta game? Just curious; a lot of games don't want their early bugs publicized.
are they working during the weekend? :)
Have to say it's impressive to see how much effort you guys put into WoD.
Referring to working in the evening and the weekend, I'd almost feel guilty.
Do you have an date when we can download the stage 0 pool alpha again?
that would be nice
Richard (dev) say a couple of days more...so we can expect the pool on tuesday (it´s a guess) for the best! Be patient divers it almost on our hands! keep your swimwear around you!
Oh please not thuesday ^^ I have to play the Diablo 3 addon on this day!
play diablo 3 in the swimming pool :D
We will keep the facebook page updated with the link to interviews we had at the GDC..
So you know a little bit what to expect when we will launch the Stage 0..
Ok thx to keep us inform! By the way on GDC people was enthusiast like us about the game? A read a lot of good things about the game around the net!
"I feel like I was on a break" sounds like exactly what I'm hoping for.
same here :)
So congratulation!! I had no doubt about the succes of the game! I hope that the final version of the Occulus Rift will Come this year (that i planed to get it) to feel more wet!
Awesome hehe ^^
Haha, 2 points to those who (No pun intended) dove right on that. Right place right time.
And did anyone manage to complete the swimming pool mission in that time?
i think Madcatz did'it if i remember
Yes, he even said how many points he got i think but cant remember what it was.
Edit: "and the "swimming pool mission" is successful tagged with 50 points"
Can we have a little update about the Stage 0? Would be nice to know what is happening.
same here waiting for it ^^
yes please !! tired of refreshing this page all the time :)
After 2 days waiting!
Yep!!! Hang on divers! is matter of a days now! I think the dev are very busy at this time (and you thought to i guess) and even if the Stage 0 is a test i'm sure they do their best to polish it in a maximum they can!
they shouldn't have told us about the stage 0, they just should have surprised us with it when it's ready !! the problem now is that we are waiting for long time, and spend a lot of time here , refreshing again and again, so frustrating :) but of course i undestand they are busy and need to take their time to fix it , i'm not blaming them for that .
I think the confusion came from the news sites saying World of Diving beta would be released the week of GDC xD
i think thats the chase ^^
The thing was that the devs told us that, not the news sites : p
I have spend allot of times waiting for updates and games to come out. the problem is that when the devs say a date, People are disappointed when the have to postpone. But when they do deliver and it is not up to scratch people will complain that the should have waited and polished it more.. So i will wait patiently. :D
This is such a good point. +1 for your insight :)
You mean people want there cake and eat it too. Not here /; )
I am confused, where can I find this to play?
The Swimming pool will be released tomorrow.
can't wait :) but at least we know :)
