    didn't see anyone post the instructions for the multiplayer beta so here they are (they are on the battletech forms so I don't think i'm breaking anything.Not like it was an email. don't even have to log in to see this part of the forums)

    THE DOUBLE-SECRET MULTIPLAYER BETA TEST is for those hearty souls willing to opt-in and help stress test the system in the wild. All Backers with Beta Access are invited to participate but by opting-in, you accept that you may experience connection issues, crashes, and dropped games - which is exactly what the test is aimed to fix.

    The Double-Secret Multiplayer Beta Test is separate from the current Skirmish Beta. You can access it by following these instructions:

    1. In the left column games list of your Steam library right-click “BattleTech - Backer Beta”
    2. Select “Properties”
    3. Click on the tab labelled “BETAS”
    4. In the text box, type “DEATHFROMABOVE” (all caps, no quotes)
    5. Click the “CHECK CODE” button (do not hit enter)
    6. In the dropdown menu, select “mpbeta - Multiplayer test build for BT Backer Beta”
    7. Click the “CLOSE” button
    8. Double-Secret Multiplayer Beta Test version will start downloading automagically
    9. Launch the game from within Steam - launching directly from the game .exe or a shortcut will not work!

    Note: to return to the normal Backer Beta, select “NONE - Opt out of all beta programs” from the drop down menu.

    I have to say, I have been very happy with the beta so far.

    Multiplayer beta is live for all, it is out of date with internal build and is used for net code testing until end of year.

    So, have discovered the perfect FRR scout lance. It combines the elements of the Kurita and Stiener scout mechs currently available in the Beta test.
    1x Atlas & 1x Panther. = 15 million c-bills

    You are welcome. Happy face stomping
