Hi guys, thought it would be useful to get a list here of who has signed up to the TPP for Formula Fusion. Mainly to see who will be taking part in the testing phases as stated on the R8 Games website. If you wish to take part in the layered testing phase starting at the end of April, you will need at least the Bronze package.

If you are taking part in the TPP, please indicate in this thread along with which which package you have - Free, Bronze, Silver or Gold.

I'm in with the Gold package.

12th January 2015, 07:05 PM
Purchased Gold package.

12th January 2015, 07:47 PM
Gold here.

12th January 2015, 09:21 PM
gold here too

13th January 2015, 02:40 PM
Gold Package here as well

13th January 2015, 03:26 PM
Please explain the Bronze/Silver /Gold etc

I visited the site to apply for registration when it first appeared months ago.....tried, no response... zilch!

I thought maybe the trial numbers had been filled, so I let it drop.

Let me guess.
You need Facebook membership to participate.

If so, that's explains it.

Please tell me I'm wrong.

A lot of us old WO pilots have vowed never to join Facebook [WO ARENA pilots especially]

Seeing ElHabib making a reappearance after what must be 3 to 4 years surprises me.

Explanation for Free/Bronze/Silver/Gold packages : http://www.r8games.com/#!r8-test-pilot-programme/c17q8

You don't need facebook to be on TPP, for sure.
Check your mailbox, maybe you didn't see a mail from R8Games saying you're admittted(recieved mine before christmas). Or try again, it'll maybe work this time.

Gold here :)

Oh, I was never really gone - just lurking in the shadows, hoping and praying for a wipEout game/successor I can enjoy again ;)

14th January 2015, 08:47 PM
I'll purchase the gold package tomorrow.

15th January 2015, 06:10 AM
OK, bought GOLD.
Have yet to see what I have bought, will do over the weekend.
Also I'll move the mega PC it's installed on ,into the lounge, and try it over the projector.

3D capabilities with this game ? never bothered to ask, if so, how to turn them on and what do I need to play in 3D ?

Sorry I don't ask this stuff on your R8 FACEBOOK PAGE.
Quite simple really.
Refuse to use Facebook ..... Loath it.

Refuse to use Facebook ..... Loath it.

You and me both mate.

15th January 2015, 03:11 PM

15th January 2015, 03:54 PM
I ever wondered why there is this hate against Facebook over here

Aaannnd, I'm in

I think it's because most of the long term members here are a bit older than most forums, and don't suffer from a compulsive need to reveal to others, just how boringly narcissistic they are in the form of 'Selfie's', and thinking that the world could not survive another minute without them 'Liking' or 'disliking' every inane thing other deluded Facebook 'Friends' post [of few they have ever actually met].
There was a episode of South Park that said it better than I could on just how ridiculous Facebook is.

Stan's comment to his Father sums it up perfectly 'I just don't really want to pay attention to this [Facebook]'

I blame the fact that the Smartphone and Facebook basically came about at the same time, one fed the uptake of the other, you can't go anywhere now days without people looking down at a screen, luckily a few each day manage to take themselves out of the gene pool by walking out in front of a car or bus while doing so.

It seems to be a generational thing, thankfully the current generation coming through now [10-14 year old's] are clued up on the antisocial aspects of Facebook, and are tending to not join up, with any luck Facebook will eventually be seen as a mentally unhealthy passing fad, and go the way of the Hula Hoop.

Businesses like R8 have had to use Facebook to sell their wares, I don't blame them for that, good on them, you have to get the attention of those who are oblivious to anything else, otherwise they will never know about you.
It's easy for them as well, as they have a voluntary captured market of a similar mindset, and just have to appease them by asking for their approval by 'Liking' them, thereby reinforcing the underlying narcissism that drives Facebook.

I don't like the fact that some newer games are having Facebook interaction, as it causes problems for those that like the game and playing online, but don't want anything to do with Facebook.
Getting Facebook friends requests from people you have met via playing a game online, and then having to explain each time , No, I don't have Facebook, is usually met with disbelief, and misread as you not wanting to interact at all.

Also, since this sort of Facebook interactivity has been one of the main 'Features' of the PS4, added to the the lack of, and the exorbitant prices being asked for PS4 games, is why I have yet to buy one.

17th January 2015, 06:23 AM
That is exactly why I hate facebook, also, the fact that any content you upload becomes the property of Facebook. It's no longer 'yours'.

17th January 2015, 06:45 AM
Anything you make available digitally via the NET is considered 'Of Free Use' by those who choose to steal, and risk prosecution [which rarely happens, and if they lose, the fine is so minimal that it is of no deterrent]

A fine example of how bad it's got.

Does STEAM have safeguards against pirated software.
I ask because I would hate to see R8 suffer from pirates.

17th January 2015, 07:05 AM
I'm not sure, but if it's on Steam, chances are it probably won't get pirated. Probably.

17th January 2015, 08:12 AM
I always worry.

Where there's a will there's a way

17th January 2015, 08:50 AM
Yeah, that's true.

17th January 2015, 10:25 AM
Erm... guys?.... Topic? :?

17th January 2015, 02:41 PM
...oops. We've summoned him through our off-topicness. This is bad.

I might go for the Gold pack, but only if I can remember to buy a pre-paid credit card.

20th January 2015, 09:38 AM
Signed up for the free one.

25th January 2015, 06:20 PM
Just signed up for Gold..... :)

27th January 2015, 03:59 AM

You don't need a credit card, you can pay via PayPal....PayPal now lets you have pre-paid amounts in your account, any purchases are deducted from that, a invoice is sent at the end of each month.

31st January 2015, 05:27 PM
Hi everybody, I signed up for gold

10th February 2015, 03:20 PM
I bought the Gold TPP right before Christmas (about 1 day after they relased these packs)... and today I received a personal letter by developers! It's amazing :)

10th February 2015, 10:26 PM
Yeah, I got my letter this morning.
I like how the 2500 early adopters will get some sort of track personalization [some part named after you]

I think SL did that with some wipeout tracks as well, but few people know of them.
If you look on Chenghou reverse, the last hairpin right turn before you go over the rise to turn left down to the finish line, at the apex of that right hand turn you will see a emblem of a Gallic Rooster on a pole, which I surmise is a salute for the support WO in general got from the Wipeout Arena people, and Asayyeah holding so many records over the years, plus the fact that a few of the guys visited SL while PULSE was being built.

10th February 2015, 10:56 PM
there's a salute in 2048 too :D
maybe you'll get it ;)

11th February 2015, 06:01 AM
Bazzaman perhaps ?
I see he hasn't visited the forum in almost exactly 2 years :frown:

11th February 2015, 11:46 PM
Boy has it been a few years since I last came here. I paid for the Silver package because I didn't think I needed the gold option (not now anyway). Test Pilot #185 woo!

12th February 2015, 09:05 AM
Just signed up for the Gold option :)

I donít even know if Iíll have time for the eSports part, but hey, itís supporting the game and itís even redeemable when the the full game gets released :)

12th February 2015, 09:48 PM
When I bought my TPP, the image they were using to describe the packages was a bit messed up and described it in a way where Gold was Bronze + eSports offerings. As I wanted the tDR stuff I went with Silver. They later fixed it, and have since offered the eSports package separately, so I have a gold equivalent combination made of Silver + eSports
Apparently the result of the above is that I am both test pilot #39 and #187

18th February 2015, 09:21 PM
By the way: Is there some kind of confirmation via mail or something other than the Sellfy-Download? :)

21st February 2015, 07:08 AM
Yes and yet I`m still waiting but, did contact them through Facebook and he is off sick atm, so he send his apologies.


27th February 2015, 08:38 PM
Is there still room for test pilots? :)

27th February 2015, 09:06 PM
Yep, sign ups are open until April
