Hi Everyone.

Well, we decided to release the demo a few hours early. We didn't think any of you would complain and this will give us some lead time if the FTP server has an issue.

Login Info using explorer:
In nav bar: ftp://ftp.spacepiratesandzombies.com/
Username: anonymous@spacepiratesandzombies.com (when you click right click to login it will be set to this already, so just hit ok)

Login using FileZilla:
Host: 50.22.194.60
User: anonymous@spacepiratesandzombies.com
Pass: anyhting

Here is a video about how to log in using explorer based FTP thanks to Colin@FragFM:
http://www.youtube.com/v/xSyu0lzc3QI&hd=1

NOTE:
When you build your first galaxy, it is best to slide the slider all the way to the left because your autosaves will be faster.

All forum discussion about the pre-alpha demo should take place on the new forums (HERE). The old forums will go offline in a few days.

We hope this demo works for as many of you as possible. We will be monitoring the forums (mostly the new ones). Remember to update your video card drivers. This demo will work for people using Windows7 as long as their video card can run openGL.

If the demo does not work for you, we will not be releasing a new demo right away and we are very sorry. We would like as much info as possible about your system in the Bug forum on the new site if this happens and we will work for resolve for the real alpha starting in a few weeks.

Also please tell us about any tuning issues, minor bugs, or even stuff you like :)

Thank you all and we hope you have fun!

@Zotar, no worries.

If the download is slow, bare with the servers and stick with it! Restarting your download will not help!

I had the same problem, unable to download via firefox nor explorer. Was never prompted for the login and pass. Filezilla worked perfectly though.

Wow... I have honestly never seen a pre-alpha demo that was this polished, had this much content and all that without a timelimit...
I have spent well over 3 hours in the game now and I can't wait for the full game so I can finally continue the quest to to core. :)
As for issues or bugs - I haven't experienced any.

sooo.... where's the preorder button? :D

the demo looks good

haven't found anny bugs that i would know

some minor isue's is the crew counter of the total of your ships is a bit confusing hard to see what ship is low on crew and what ship is full since its totals it i think
also had a mission to pew pew some beacons and clear a gate the blast radius is a bit big and rather fatal for my ships not sure if this it ment to be so or that is scale's down as one gets better gear
the ai is working nice though with the big blast radius is tends to die some time's

have to say game looks gread love to play it controle's respond good sometimes abit to good :d but thats all in the style of the game fast pasted action like it over all

and wondering where the pre order option is

You guys are making us regret that we don't have any pre-ordering set up now hehe. We will be looking into that in the near future so that people who do order the game get to have a copy and play as we continue to develop SPAZ.

Would that be a full, as-is version while waiting for final release?
