    Contact the manufacturers and then wait for an email from them telling you that they don't need anymore Betatesters.

    I believe that most if not all betatesting is done in house by most of the software companies to reduce the chance that their rivals can get hold of the program and copy it.

    I actually played it as well.

    As I said in another topic I think it is the best game ever made and no game has ever catched me as Pirates did. That's why I so much looking forward to its sequel.

    I get the feeling for that some people here have played Pirates 2004 based on that they have said that the graphics looks much better when you play it etc. I am almost 100% sure that some people here have tested it.

    Catalina Pirate is one of them I believe.... <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    or am I loosing my mind? ..... <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="xD:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="xD:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

    Will and cat saw the game being played at E3 so they have a fair idea iof what its all about, the rest of us just use our imagination <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":yes" border="0" alt="yes.gif" />

    No I have not played the game, but I did watch both Jeff (from Atari) and Barry (from Firaxis) demonstrating the game at the E3 convention recently. To my eye, this game looks like it will be a lot of fun, and I WILL buy it - but it sure would be nice to be chosen as a betatester!!! <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":yes" border="0" alt="yes.gif" /> <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/william.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":will" border="0" alt="william.gif" /> <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/diomed.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":dio" border="0" alt="diomed.gif" />

    thanx for the clarifying... <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

    I will buy it for sure as well....

    but it would be so cool to be a beta tester. I suppose the chances are small though...

    Agree that the chances are probably very small, but it's definitly worth the try <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" /> ...

    I wrote Firaxis an `e-mail` a while back, congratulating them on their brave effort to start up a new Pirates! game <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_praise.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":bow" border="0" alt="icon_praise.gif" /> ... secretly hinting in the `e-mail` that if they needed a Beta tester... ah well, we will see <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/onya.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":onya" border="0" alt="onya.gif" />

    Can't wait till this game hits the stores.

    Btw, I'm new <img src="http://www.piratesahoy.com/forum/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/hi.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":gday" border="0" alt="hi.gif" />
