MAG Public Beta Update (v1.30)

Seth Luisi's Avatar + Posted by Seth Luisi on Oct 22, 2009 // Director of Development, SCEA

This morning we released a new MAG Public Beta update. The new MAG Public Beta update includes a new PSN Title update (version 1.30) and new game data. This new MAG Public Beta release includes over 8,000 updates and fixes, too many to list in detail. You can start downloading it now to have it ready for when the servers open at 10:00 a.m. PDT.

MAG

Some of the patch highlights are:

  • Framerate improvements in all environments
  • Vote/ Kick implemented
  • Art and lighting updates to all levels
  • Art updates to weapons, vehicles and objects
  • Animation improvement and updates
  • Client patching improvements
  • Design tuning on all environments (attacker/defender, out of bounds, sightlines, routing…)
  • Tuned all skills (skill point expense, skill trees, skill effects)
  • Tuning pass on experience rewarded for all actions (resuscitate, heal other, destroy turret, destroy motor pool….)
  • Tuning pass on player & leadership experience progressions
  • Full audio tuning pass
  • Bunker, APC, and Spawn camera adjustments
  • Lowered initial spawn times for attackers and defenders for all gametypes
  • Update Major/Minor victory and loss percentages and conditions for all gametypes
  • Updated Domination gametype scoring values
  • Improved weapon feel and hit feedback

A lot of the changes are based directly on feedback from the MAG Public Beta community. Please keep this feedback coming, it really helps us improve the title.

If you are not yet a part of the MAG Public Beta there is still time. If you pre-order MAG at GameStop in the US or EB Games in Canada you receive access to the MAG Public Beta. And remember, from November 9th until November 20th the only way to access the MAG Public Beta in North America is to pre-order MAG.

We look forward to seeing you in battle.

forgotto mentionthat when i first downloaded the whole beta, it only took me 1 hour 40 mins to downloading complete beta which i recall was something like 3600mb or so total. But some it took alot longer. Why is 2700 or so taking so long.. we need answers

Wait…so does this mean that people who bought into the beta through Qore need to preorder for a new beta? I’m confused.

You need to add a THIRD PERSON option to this game! Some of us love games like this but HATE FIRST PERSON.


106

+ Mosh_Pit on October 22nd, 2009 at 4:19 pm said:

To hawkai :
I doubt they will implement a 3rd person option. Honestly, it’s a first person shooter dude.. go play Socrap Constipation (Socom Confrontation) and pay for that DLC, (By the way this DLC should be free) if you really wanna play a third person shooter.

I have a broadband connection and I have to say the update speeds for the MAG in-game updater are ridiculously slow. I don’t understand why the developer can’t just use the Playstation Network to implement the full update, instead of having to partly download it on PSN and partly download it from their own servers in-game. When it takes several minutes for it to go up a single percent there’s a problem.

Can anyone help me? I started updating the game around 2:20p.m. today and I’ve been checking up on the progress ever since. Everything was running fine until I hit 99% (2668.17/2681.67)and it has been at that same percentage for about 2 hours now (and it’s 8:30 p.m. where I live). I’m guessing, since I have a wireless connection, that while it was updating it must’ve disconnected and is now stuck at 99% or perhaps I have disconnected and haven’t signed back in (I can’t access the XMB through the PS button to sign in either, if that is what happened). I’m wondering if I should just quit the game and turn it back on to redo the whole entire thing (which will take another 4 hours and I won’t be able to play tonight, which I was really hoping for :P) or keep it on and see if it reaches 100%. Someone please reply back a.s.a.p., need help!

+ K41DogOfWar on October 22nd, 2009 at 6:00 pm said:

Oh, wait, nevermind… I started reading through the comments and found out that someone had a similar problem to mine and I’ve read that they had quit the game and restarted it, and all of their update progress was still there, I did the same and now my update has resumed updating

#122 what does that have to do with the update freezing


124

+ xxWxAxNxTxExDxx on October 22nd, 2009 at 7:08 pm said:

not sure but like all these other peeps in here bs about they r going to quit the game is just messed up cuz this is a beta tester not the game and for the freezing it has to be a problem in one of the things they add they will fix im sure of it


125

+ NeELLiSd4U on October 22nd, 2009 at 7:09 pm said:

Dude this is total bull$h!t! over 10hrs of total download time. most of which it was stuck @ 99%. Why have server times if the download runs into the server window. this pisses me off. Zipper you guys better make it up to us by having servers up on the weekend.

+ Killer110 on October 22nd, 2009 at 7:20 pm said:

Please tell me this adds in 480P support. I hate games that don’t have 480P support. And is there a full list of the changes? MAG sounds really good now, can’t wait to play it again.

+ whatif1968 on October 22nd, 2009 at 7:43 pm said:

The download has taken ALL day (started at 1PM ET) on a 12Mb DOWN/2Mb UP Comcast Business Class Cable. No other problems downloading anything else on the connection. At 83% and still “downloading”. uuuh, what’s up with that?
And putting a kick feature in? Has anyone that writes the game even played with some of these whiny little dweebs that complain if you don’t talk? Most of them seemed to have just learned the F-word and like to show how many times they can say it in one sentence. All the reasons I never played SOCOM seem to be workign their way into MAG.

@ # 48 betas are NOT demos. Betas are actually limited to certain people who get to play most of the game for free for the purpose of testing for bugs. Granted, within the last 2 years, developers have been changing the definition for publicity… but at the same time a beta not a demo.

i like many have had my ps3 downloading this all day long. i got all the way up to the last 1mb. i guess i will try to finish the download later. just wish i could have used my ps3 while this download was going on. it would have been nice.

I heard someone said that Qore subscribers were going to get codes for the beta. I have been with Qore for several months now, but never received any code for MAG; what’s up with that???

Anyone know why I didn’t get a code from gamestop when I pre ordered this?? I have the receipt should I go back to gamestop and ask why?

OMG WTF!!!!!!!!! 12 hours of downloading and still @ 56%. This is a load of crap. by the time I get this update another one will be there waiting for me. So much for getting a chance to play this beta with servers only up half the time. This pisses me off to no end. THANKS ZIPPER YOU JUST $H!T ON MY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

+ Sarge54303 on October 22nd, 2009 at 8:55 pm said:

@131 Yes go back to the store you purchaced it at and make sure that they give your the card that has the scratch off on the back and under that should be your game code. If they don’t by chance have one ask when they are getting their next shipment in and make sure you are there to get one.

+ SPOOKULA209 on October 22nd, 2009 at 9:14 pm said:

I didnt have to delete mine I just turned it off once and let it sit. The server or your ps3 saves what you downloaded so you don’t have to redownload it again. It took a while but it finally finished. There were many changes but there are some that people will complain about like the hit detection of some guns.

Stuck at 69% after 10 hours. Same old crappy Zipper servers.

How can putting a vote/kick feature in destroy the game? That’s a good thing. I hate when some idiot is running around not doing what they are supposed to.. Or playing their stupid music down the mic or even the occasional clown that thinks he’s cool so he joins the server and completely ruins the game for everyone by like, throwing the bomb somewhere you can’t get it.. or TK’ing everyone etc. etc..

Atleast make patches where it is set for weekends when we can set it and leave it.. I couldn’t play PS3 for any other games!! NO had to get this patch to play MAG and still not done!!

You guys need to stop smoking the reefer, crack in the morning, whatever it is you guys are hooked on is showing in your work.
Sony I have a word for you.
QUALITY, Look it up before you hire the fools you do, then take a day to look it up and read the definition out loud to each and every person in the office before you all start each and every day.
How is this a beta test? This is how you flush customer loyalty and piss mass amounts of PAYING customers off.. What are you guys on, seriously.. find a rehab.
