Title: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: Ellowee on 2016 Nov 21, 20:22:04
Aaaaaand it's a wrap! We've now closed applications for this first stage of our Limited Access Release.

We'd like to thank everypony who's applied to help us test Legends of Equestria at this point; you've certainly given us plenty of reading material to get through!

So what's next? Well, we'll be reviewing all applicants over the next two weeks or so; after that, we'll contact the people we've chosen to participate in the LAR via the forum (and hopefully, connected email addresses!) to let them know, in advance of the LAR kicking off on December 12th!

If you missed out on applying at this stage, or decided not to apply, don't worry too much; this is just the first stage of LoE's release. As we explained before in our Limited Access Release explanation post (http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=16270), there'll be more opportunities in the future as we expand the scope of the 'limited' part, leading up to the full, open and public release version of Legends of Equestria in the coming months!

So how will they be contacted? E-Mail? Personal Message? Etc. ...? :s

The LAR Application had a question that asked for your Forum name. That's how they know who to contact if they're selected. I think you'll receive a PM from Ellowee or someone else that will tell you "Hey congrats you've been selected for the LAR"

So now the waiting game begins. So in 2 weeks we get to see who made the 10%, or less if ya guys got way more than 2000 x3

cross those hooves, hope you get that good fortune cookie, pick out that 4-leaf clover, pick up a ra-eh... how bout get those lucky RD Horseshoes, find a shooting star around a globe, toss a penny at a fountain, blow out that candle, break that wishbone to your favor, tap those ruby slippers 3 times, find that lamp, catch that fairy, find those 7 dragon balls, get that monkey's hand, or follow the end of the rainbow.

Well, some people might get notified a bit earlier than two weeks, as I'm sure they won't tell all of those people the DAY OF RELEASE.


Or I'm wrong and that's exactly what they're going to do.


Also, there is a good chance that they'll also notify us via email as well. After all, each of our forum accounts has an email address associated with it that they can use. At least, it would be smart of them to use it.

The fact that I would want to produce performance benchmarks of the game, showing how it runs on different hardware, and then publish that online to help people know what they need to run the game.

But shucks, forgot about it. Would of been a great pitch.

No point with making benchmarks. First off public releases havent had any fancy graphic options settings and as for the benchmark, for that all they have to do is try the game on 8+ year old rig with low specs and it will be no brainer that anything above will work.  Dont know about latest builds but from previous public tests it worked just fine on 512MB opengl 4.0 GPU, so the question is if it will work with GPU's  with opengl 3.x and below. For example Intel Extreme Graphics 2 had problems like no textures

Spoiler: show

As for minimum ammount of ram well it all depends how much stuff people are running in the background, some have <2GB, others more, but in the end if someone has at least 1GB or more free RAM (not counting in use by system) it should be ok.

Also the big factor is ammount of people around you since this IS a MMO after all. The more people around you (on your screen) the higher the demand. So in the end a benchmark would not be of much use. As for minimum specs, if there will be anything mentioned, it will still be dependant by the people near you.

Forgetting the username? but that question was one of the first questions on that form we filled :I

Luckily I didn't forget to fill that one with my forum username :P

But don't worry, there will be a next phase later so you can try to enter along with who ever didn't make it to this first phase ^-^

I hope I get chosen on this first phase, it would be a nice birthday present ahead of time for me since my birthday is on December 19 XD

That or take a look inside your computer if it's a desktop.. or better yet, know your computer specs by heart! Real gamers know their specs by memory  ^-^

Just being honest here...  :l

I did get a new computer which is an upgrade from my last build I had so the specs i listed in my application are completely different now but still...

Btw, easier way to get some of your computer specs is to go to your file browser (yellow folder) go to that monitor icon that displays all your folders, storage spaces etc.
Right click, properties and then it'll show your processor and ram.

But take Dark Twi's suggestion and quickly DL GPU-Z it'll display everything.

I think something that should be remembered is the fact that there's inevitably going to be a lot of people who apply who are, well, very young I guess?

Computer specification is going to be REALLY hard for them to wrap their heads around but they'd just love to be involved with the testing, so it's a bit of a hard problem to solve without disappointing a lot of potential players (but people only intending to play the game should wait until full release, or a later testing stage), though I suppose people who are eager to help could learn quite fast, since the only thing they'd really need is speccy.  X3

You're pretty much on the right track but they were looking for the specifics I believe so that's what I did in my application for the specs I had in my last custom built desktop.

The specs in my new build that I use now is different then what I originally put in my application all that time ago. But I'm not really worried about it.

For "type" would be a desktop or laptop and that would not be much of an information that they might have been looking for, but you provited procesor at least. For the radeon it might have been better to add which model. They also wanted resolution and amount of RAM would be nice.

For the future applications it might be a good idea to mention CPU-Z for people that do not know their specs. It can provide with: CPU name, memory (RAM) amount, and graphics name, which would be enough information for them. Apart from resolution.

For CPU name and ram you can also ctrl +alt + delete and select performance tab IF you are on windows 8/8.1/10  (windows 7 and XP will not show it there)

A better pitch would have been if you could test it on multiple platforms. For example, I have a Linux machine, so due to the relative lack of testers, I am more likely (statistically) of getting in.

Way to stay positive about your chances.  ;)
And I agree, I think they would indeed be selecting from a variety of testers. Your setup may not be as much the norm as mine likely is, so I am sure you would be near retroactively selected, just for that alone, if it is all that unique.  ^-^

Me, I am sure I have a generic setup.  :P

I am running on a (an old non VR ready) gaming laptop, running Windows 8.1, an older i7 and older Nivida chip. Other than not being VR ready, it can play many 3D games quite well. It has little trouble with most any 2014 game. No Man's Sky, is one It can't play, as a newer game.

So, I got something good (good enough to play this, I am sure), though not a stand-out setup.  :s

Should be interesting to see if I get selected within the next few days. To those that do get in, cheers!  :D

My PC can manage to play Legends of Equestria, but not Fallout Equestria without crashing the game or even my entire system into brick mode.

'Tis already December 5th by the time I'm typing this at 10:30 PM PST / 1:30 AM EST. We await today or tomorrow for the updated results...!

Doubt it's your PC, No Man's Sky is just inherently optimised badly, it's one of the most disappointing PC games i've ever played. Refunded it  >:O

Ya never know mate.

They could today, tmrw, the day after tmrw.. like I said, it could happen anytime.

I've been waiting patiently myself and have been wondering all this time rather who has been chosen for LAR. Well, hopefully in a few days or less that wait will be over and they may make an announcement saying they've looked all the Applications over and have made their decisions.

Just keep checking your inboxes guys cause you may find that golden letter from LoE Staff saying "Congratulations".

Doubt it's your PC, No Man's Sky is just inherently optimised badly, it's one of the most disappointing PC games i've ever played. Refunded it  >:O


Actually it IS your PC. No Man's Sky requires GPU with OpenGL 4.5

Ya never know mate.

They could today, tmrw, the day after tmrw.. like I said, it could happen anytime.

I've been waiting patiently myself and have been wondering all this time rather who has been chosen for LAR. Well, hopefully in a few days or less that wait will be over and they may make an announcement saying they've looked all the Applications over and have made their decisions.

Just keep checking your inboxes guys cause you may find that golden letter from LoE Staff saying "Congratulations".


Well in a week all will be known and most likely when someone get a PM i bet one of the first people will write it here that he/she did

Tested it on the following systems and it ran like trash on all of them.

i7 4790, R9 290X, 24GB RAM
5700HQ, GTX 980M, 32GB RAM
6700HQ, GTX 960M, 32GB RAM

The game is terribly optimised.

(Talking about No man's sky, not LOE. LOE has ran fine for me previously.)

They did say 2 weeks until they know who for sure got in.

They never specifically said what date they will send out PM's to those who did make it in.


I know, everyone's getting excited and impatient. Myself included. But, I'll be honest that I know that I didn't make it. I'll be surprised tbh if I did considering HOW many people applied cause they could only grant access to a handful like say.. over 100 maybe? or more. Who knows what the server capacity is without it going crazy.

It obviously isn't as optimized as it could be but I don't really have significant problems outside of the SCC dance parties. Complex areas like parts of Cantermore can be a bit laggy or a dozen spells being cast at once but otherwise it runs well for me.

From previous OSEs, the capacity is a couple hundred at least. And remember this isn't just a brief weekend, the server will be up indefinitely so short of calling for a stress test you would normally not have a lot of players on at once.

I was talking about no man's sky, personally I think LOE seems decently optimized, though it can't really be that demanding due to what it is.

I was able to run it during their latest August OSE with an old laptop using GeForce GT 750M (which is about 10x worse than a desktop GeForce 460). So it's not too intensive on the GPU.

I would like to point out to everyone that the actual results probably won't be finished until a couple more days.

The official word was "about two weeks" and "before the release"

This is big, and I am sure that they received thousands of applications, and each of them worth consideration.

So most likely, we'll get news Thursday or Friday.

And if I'm wrong, then that's just a bonus!  X3

Just don't hold down that refresh button too hard.

They said they're going to open the servers up to more and more players as time goes on until eventually, the servers are open to all.  I wonder if they'll select from the current applications or do the process all over again for future phases of the Limited Access Release?  I'll be more than excited to be able to play, whether that happens to be this phase, a future phase, or when the servers open to everybody.

PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN PONY.  ovO

Seriously though, they'll probably send out a mass PM or something or PM each individual of who made it in. As the day gets closer, I get more nervous and anxious cause I'm dying to play the game and also help contribute to the games development process as it comes near completion.

While I won't be too upset if I don't get accepted, I will be a bit surprised. I'm a college student in my final year going for a Video Game Programming degree and I basically do playtesting, bug tracking, debugging, and project feedback every day for a living which sounds like a fantastic candidate according to what they are looking for, if I'm not mistaken.  0:)

Either way, we'll all be able to join in the game at some point or another so I'm happy to wait as long as necessary if I'm not accepted.  ^-^

I'm kind of in the same boat. Game/character design nor writing are a strength for me. Programming is more my thing but I know nothing of Unity and only recently begun dabbling in C# so not much use in that regard either. Testing and analyzing games and systems I can do fairly well though, so it's a way to contribute. I'd really love to get in this round but not a big tragic thing for me if I don't.

I've actually got 2 Unity projects going for this semester. One of them is for a research project on AI (I decided to research dynamic reactive actions to better simulate human behavior). The other one is for my portfolio project and is entirely focused on writing Unity shaders for material/texture effects, post-processing effects, and particle system effects. I'm aiming to get a job as a Graphics Programmer specializing in shaders once I graduate. :D

There is a 99.8% probability that the person who claimed to have gotten in is just a troll.

I mean, there's  going to be a bunch of people announcing the result.

I know I would, and I'm not the type of person to brag. And I know I want to go check out the other people who got in as well, just because I like to feel good for other people's success. It's just... something you do.


I don't really know where I'm going with this.


Anyway, good luck everyone!

I don't believe so. The 12th is when the servers open permanently. It is more than likely that they will inform those who have been accepted before then.

Hmmm... I think that's a good idea, but I think members shouldn't exclude anyone else. Also, I think it's a great idea for after the servers are open to more people, for the members selected first to have a "reunion" type thing in-game. Each member would have a sort of list of the other ponies in the group, so they'd be able to recognize them in the game, and have a group of friends from the get-go.

Or something like that.

But they would have to be careful not to become sort of elitist club or something like that.

It is said in the news that everyone will be notified in advanced, so we will expect notifications before Dec. 12.


It is alright to create a herd or guild, I got no objections to that. Least a small group is enough so that few can come hang around. As an entire group of people who got accepted, well... that's a challenge x3 gotta convince hundreds to join and that ain't easy.

If one thing I learned from LoE experience is we may see herd form during the gameplay, or closed server testing for this one x3, so I wouldn't be surprised we may see a group making a circle somewhere. However, people would probably create guilds right at the moment they got acceptance so they can gather, send info on how they will look like in-game, meeting place, and other stuff before they open.

And DEFINITELY sounds nice for reunions. Every OSW in the past friends or herds send each other news to meet up, so for sure when it becomes more open to everyone we will be seeing a welcome back party. Just imagine what friendships we had in only 3 days, and now think what can be done in the many days it is opened. Could be something bigger, like a snowball rolling down the LoE event hill, where the hill would now be a mountain of many days.


Also... hehehe x3 could be somewhat possible for an elitist group, but hopefully they all still love and respect for all. Not sure who would want to start a billionair's club lol not that a herd like that is bad, probably a group of OCs with names correlating to wealth, but you know what I mean x3.


We do have some herds that still thrive till this day, though they become much active during or before the events and only a few actually remain active. Unfortunately many herds wimper out of existence due to no longer wanting to wait for the next event or just moved on to other stuff. Still there are the very few who continue the passion for LoE game/forum and to MLP and perhaps still accepting members. I mean if you wanna wish to join a herd, creat one of your own, or just go lone wolf and maybe discover or create one in-game x3 possibility is enormous.


WOW THAT WAS A LOT OF TALKING FROM ME lol

If we don´t get notified within the next 3 days we didn´t make it into the L.A.R. but I would be very surprised if neither the selected people get announced ( or they announce that they are done notifing those who got selected ) nor those who got selected post a comment on the forum.  :P

Looks like my guess that it would happen over the weekend may be correct. Honestly, I haven't been F5ing very much. I check the forums maybe 6 times a day and I spent the majority of today sleeping  :]

Maybe nopony will be accepted.  ovO
Title: Re: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: ~RainCloud on 2016 Dec 10, 01:31:15
One of the things I've figured out is when you get a message from LoE you will get it in your email or your browser will tell you, you have a message waiting for you when you go to the forums from the main page.


So, now you all know! if u haven't known already  :P

That would be messed up.

But I doubt that's what happened or even would happen. Seems too cruel.
Title: Re: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: Peace Keeper on 2016 Dec 10, 02:21:28
Definitely. I know for sure that would never happen. Would be breaking a huge trust from everyone.

Everyone is all hyped is all. I understand how badly they wish to be the few who get selected to play and test the game, especially there is only about 2 days left till the release (for me as of this post is technically 3 days).

What I DO believe is that they might or should make the announcement tomorrow. The reason I say is because I am afraid from the overwhelming amount of people that will be rushing to download the game will take a ridiculous amount of time to download it due to traffic. Then again since it will be opened for pretty much the month of December, you have practically 2-3 weeks to download the game so wouldn't be so bad, but I am definitely sure everyone wants to be the first in line. Even so, there is a ton of time for everyone to get into the game if they get selected so no need for a mad rush like if it was a Black Friday sale.

True. Still got he morning "ugh" before they fully wake up. Should be coming up soon, if not tomorrow.

Just had a dream I got selected as well lol wow that anxiety, as well as a song that came into my dream, and woke up remembering the same song.
Title: Re: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: AdrenalineRush26 on 2016 Dec 10, 13:02:22
Being a game programmer myself, albeit not on LoE but I imagine the process is very similar, I imagine that the devs are on crunch time trying to get some last minute stuff done as well. And that would mean they don't have a build for us to download yet so there would not be any notifications yet. Just a hypothesis though.
Title: Re: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: Peace Keeper on 2016 Dec 10, 13:09:31
True. That is with the previous OSWs as well. The development is split up, so to get the last-minute update would take them time to send each other the information the put it all together. There was a previous OSW that needed a new download to get the correct fix in the game, but time was crunched that day.

I've had similar dreams.

And I never remember my dreams, except those kind of dreams, which makes it all seem so real.

Often those dreams are of entire days, and stop right before I have any enjoyment whatsoever. So frustrating.

And the Inception-type dreams are even more frustrating.

Dont jump the gun saying you did not get in. It takes time to update peoples access rights, and someone with the ability to do it (admin, junior admin, tweeked mod) so give it a day, to know for sure. Just keep waiting till the 12th, if you will not see new section at the top or get a PM by then then you will know for sure.

They will not do it in 10 sec flat  :P

At the top of the main forum page do you see "News" section? If you got in you will see above it "Limited Access Release" section. And keep waiting till monday to know for sure. Unless someone will say that all people that got in were updated.
Title: Re: Limited Access Release Applications Are Closed!
Post by: PegaBrony on 2016 Dec 10, 17:35:34
I'm assuming that they would send a PM either way, if you did get in or not. They also said that they would contact you with the given email address and so if you don't get an email by Dec. 12th then you weren't accepted. There will always be other times to apply, right? Good luck!

Part of my is in denial like "Maybe they are still sending emails, or maybe I put the wrong email in." I was like this with the OverWatch beta! ^^

But any ways, congrats to the people who got in. Have fun with testing and playing the game!

Check the home page. If you can see the Limited Access Release board, you are in. It is another way to be sure you got in. The LAR board is invisible to everyone else.

I believe they misread or misspoke there, the LAR started on Dec. 12th, but nothing was ever said about applications reopening at a certain date. Though it does say sometime in the future there will be more chances
