It's always nice to be able to pay the bills. It's also nice to have a large, willing team of testers across a variety of hardware setups and operating systems as you move towards your GMC.

They only have one seed on a torrent. Once I get it, I'll stay up as long as possible.

I'll do the same, sadly my 30 minute download went to 6 hours because the other seeder dropped off.

Would be interested to know if Beta has full TrackIR and HOTAS functionality and a manual before deciding to pre-purchase, many thanks.

Can the download be paused and resumed? Or does the PC have to be always on in order not to cancel an incomplete d/l?

Also, are there working tutorial missions in the Beta?
