How to access the Beta Testing server

Recommended Posts

The beta testing server is no longer visible by default in the Homecoming live manifest, as a sizable number of players dislike being forced to download the files and have the extra options show up. Instead, it is now available through the following URL: http://patch.savecoh.com/beta.xml

 

In order to add this manifest to Tequila, follow these instructions:

 

Click the "Options" button.

Enter the Manifest URL in the "Manifests" text box, then click the "Add" button.

The "Manifests" box is the one at the bottom. Do not put the link in the top box labeled "Launch Parameters" or the game will fail to launch. If you don't know what Launch Parameters are, make sure that box is empty.

Make sure the new manifest is selected and click OK.

After clicking "Add", the new URL will show up in the list of manifests. Make sure it is selected by clicking on it, then click the OK button.

Check that the beta manifest is active, then close Tequila.

Under the "Play" button you should see the beta manifest URL. Do not attempt to launch the game now, or you will launch the live servers. Use the "X" at the top right of the window to close Tequila.

Restart Tequila and you should now have the HC Beta options.

After launching Tequila again, the HC Beta (64-Bit) and HC-Beta (32-Bit) options will be available. After they are done downloading, select either of them and click "Play" to launch the game.

Is there different Login info? It's not accepting my normal password which works fine when I switch back over to normal server.

The following is what I was told, when I asked the same question in another thread a while back. There still hasn't been an update since December 6th, but I try logging in every 2-3 days anyway just in case someone stealth-cloned the list or something. Still no luck though: (Edit to Add:) I'm wrong... just saw there are new patch notes from January 6th, which was right after I last tried to log into beta... aaaand looks like I can finally log in now! So I guess keep an eye out for the next beta patch notes and then try again.

The Beta Server user list is periodically cloned from live.  Looks like the last time it was updated was the first week of December, so it doesn’t have you as a member on it yet.  Next time the Dev’s update Beta you should be good

http://patch.savecoh.com/beta.xml opens a page of code.

Yes, it contains the code that Tequila uses for launching the game.  You specify that URL in Tequila, Tequila goes to that URL and reads the code, and then executes whatever instructions are there to make sure your client files are updated, and when finished, lights up the PLAY button for you.
