How to download new beta build

I already bought this game and have a cd key and everything - would appreciate it if someone can point me to where I can download the newest build (0.958b).

You must be logged in. Go News, then on the right Play Beta and under online version of the game you have options to download.

Hey Grendel,

If you have a cd key, it sounds like you have access to the game on Desura. If you login to your account there, you should see some links on the right, under "Purchased Downloads." There's one for each platform. The Desura client should also let you play the game, if you have that installed.

Also, as a Desura customer, you can connect your Desura account to this website. It will grant you access to builds here, as well.

And as Kaaven says, once you're here, just visit the Beta page to either play the Flash version or download a platform-specific version.

Hopefully that gets you started. If you need any more info, let me know!

Is there some kind of mailing list featuring a message when there is a new version ready ?
As far as the Beta page goes, I do not even see the version number of the latest build there in text form.
And when you are only after the links for the download versions, it takes ages to get there because flash has to be compleately loaded first.

Sorry to be complaining. To get this straight, these are only nuisances to an otherwise great page and game.

On the "News" page, right side panel, bellow logo and demo/beta links - "Subscribe to News". Every info including new builds is posted there as soon as it is on site.

As Kaaven points out, the RSS is probably the easiest way to keep track of new builds. I post a news item entitled "New Beta Build: ____" each time a new build is available.

However, you're right that one of these days I should make some part of the webpage list the current version number and build date. I just haven't done it yet since it would be a manual process, and I'd forget to update it reliably.

Since we are on the subject... Can you add version number to the downloadable file name? I have like 3 different exe files around my drive, each named the same but different version. You know, like :NEOScavanger(0.9XX).exe. Would be great.
