If you want to play, you need to pre-order the game and follow these instructions:
After pre-order, you should have the preloaded T:A game files that you can get with the Hi-Command updater/patcher.
Start the game normally from Hi-Command and get to the broken login screen
Exit the game
Check in your Windows user directory's "Documents\My Games\Tribes Ascend\TribesGame\Config\ " folder for a file named TribesEngine.ini
Open the file in a text editor and find the lines in the "URL" section that say "Map=TribesMainEntry.fmap " and "LocalMap=TribesMainEntry .fmap"
Change the name of the file to one of the maps in "C:\Hi-Command\games\tribes alpha\TribesGame\CookedPC \Maps"
there's a folder for each map, just pick a .fmap file (the TrCTF-XXXX.fmap ones seem to work)
Change the line back in TribesEngine.ini to something like "Map=TrCTF-Drydock.fmap" and do the same for LocalMap
Run the game again from Hi-Command
For a higher resolution: find "ResX" and "ResY" in the same file. Mine are set to ResX=1920 and ResY=1080
HOW TO CHANGE CLASS:
Step One: Press ~ (Console)
Step Two: Type "SetCharFamily Light_Pathfinder" without quotes.
Step Three: Enjoy new class
that's it! now you can play T:A before the beta officially starts.
(note: you can find the "real" game start menu by changing the .fmap to MainEntry.fmap instead of TribesMainEntry.fmap, but none of the modes seem to work right now because the 'open' command is unsupported in this build)
in the game, there's a console accessible either by pressing ` (~) or [. the commands work for various things, and some are broken, but there's one that works that adds credits/money... called something like "GiveCredits 10000". running that command lets you buy vehicles.
