First off, let me apologize for my long absence from the public part of this site. I’ll try to do better. I’ve been incredibly busy with the beta. It just doesn’t show on the face of this site.
So, where are we?
The beta is still a closed beta. Right now, it’s really just a handful of folks who have been following EpicTable for a long time. Why? To keep from getting overwhelmed with questions and issues and requests. The beta testers have been great–all I could hope for–but I sure didn’t need more of them, at least at first.
Now, things are settling into a bit of a rhythm. I just released beta-4, about a week after beta-3. There’s one issue that I want to resolve prior to opening up the beta. Partly, because it’s a painful one for the beta testers, but partly because having a lot more people encounter it is going to generate a lot of noise in an area that I’m changing anyway. I may as well get a lot of feedback on the new code, rather than on a known flaw. Once that issue is fixed, I’ll start opening the beta to a wider audience.
Speaking of wider audiences…. Some of you visited the EpicTable booth at Gen Con this year. (Thanks!) If you signed up for the beta, you’ll be in the next wave of beta invitees. However, if you visited the booth, you have some loot in your possession. Look at that carefully for a way to get into the beta right now.
Also, I very quietly–I guess too quietly–updated the Features page. That has a few tutorial videos on it, and I’ll be expanding that as time goes on.
Thanks for sticking with me. Talk to you soon.
