    Hmmm... I've been a registered member since PlayOnline opened up on this side of the Pacific and I was able to get a demo. I got an e-mail from Square-Enix telling me about the demo and allowing me put in my address to get one. So, yeah. I'll be gettin' a demo for Front Mission 4 here any day now. biggrin.gif

    I *hate* Square's website. I've been trying for 3 days (I got my email
    about the demo Tuesday night) to get into the stupid thing.... mad.gif

    Half the browsers I tried wouldn't even load the darn thing. When I finally
    found one that would, I couldn't remember my (ages ago) registration. Of
    course, they don't have a "Forgot your password?" feature. So I tried to
    register again. Took three tries to get thru the Reg page without a crash.
    Got my "click here to confirm your registration" email. The link they give me
    does nothing.

    I can't login to the stupid site.
    I can't get the freakin' demo.
    No reply to my *really* irate email to their Support address.

    Way to serve your customers, Square!

    - Why do companies insist on building websites that are "cool" and "high
    tech," when it excludes the average person from ever using the damn thing?
    - (and unlike most "high-tech" pages, it doesn't have an obvious disclaimer
    saying "Must use Flash v10, Java 42, and only Internet Explorer v9 to
    access". Feh.

    I had/have no problems whatsoever accessing Square's site and not a single problem garnering my Front Mission 4 demo. ?Perhaps something is amiss on your end...Browser problems, updates needed, etc...

    Oh, I'm sure something's amiss on my end. There's just no way to tell what.
    I found my way to pretty updated software eventually (Netscape 7.1 running
    on Mac 10.2.6). The final roadblock I hit was when I click on the "follow this
    link to finish your Registration" link in the email they sent me.... and all
    I get is some blank page on the Squenix site.

    (something like "www.square-enix-usa.com/throw.html"..... hmmm)

    Sigh.

    If you want to check, just go here:

    http://www.square-enix-usa.com/seui/index.htm?/seui/registerFM4.html

    If you were already signed up for the demo, you'll see a message box pop up telling you so as soon as you enter your user name and password.

    Yeah, I'm not talking about problems getting the FM4 demo, I'm talking about
    problems just getting a User Name to log in with..... (sorry if I confused anyone... smile.gif

    I got that until I opened the link in Internet Explorer. Their website is extremely hostile to non-IE browsers.

    Just curious, but if that pop-up appears, the one about having already signed up for it (the message appears inside a little alert box), does that mean you will be getting a demo for sure?

    I'm just curious, because I haven't gotten an email from them yet (Do I even get one?). Will they ship it to Canada, I wonder?

    Sorry for first post being a noobish question such as this, but I can not findthe answers anywhere. =\

    And the hits just keep on coming..... sad.gif

    Found a copy of Internet Explorer.
    Successfully completed activating my new login! Woohoo!
    Went to the FM4 demo page.
    Sat thru that long Flash thing. (complication: my ISP is acting up, and the
    best connection I have access to is dial-up... 28.8..... don't ask.)

    And when I tried to enter my login, IE crashed.

    Went back to it. Sat thru it again. Didn't crash. But I can't get an active
    cursor in the Login & Password fields. Um.

    Went back to Netscape. Got thru the movie. Got to the Login page. Got
    a cursor! Entered the info! Pushed the "login" button..... nothing happens.

    Some days it's just really hard to be me. sarcasm.gif

    I think it's time to give up on this demo thing.....

    This is really cool... I've played Front Mission on SNES... Good to see they are making more of this series... I hope to get a copy... Looks pretty cool... But I'd like to see a remake of Final Fantasy 3 and Bahamut Lagoon...

    got the demo.im curious to play it.i liked FM3 except i had to stop playing after i was half way through the game because i hated the fact that you couldn't aim at what you wanted to hit on an enemy mech.hopefully they changed that this time?
  • Options
    edited March 2004
    It's probably just like the last time. You can get skills that are activated under specific conditions that allow you to hit specific parts of the enemy. That's how it was before, at least. Skills like "Aim: Leg" and so on.

    What I want to know is, if we got the message that we already have registered does that mean we are one of the lucky 125,000 members to be sent one? or does it just mean that you have a chance to be one of the 125,000?

    Um, it's not 125,000, it's only 100,000. And it's not some random drawing, it's the first to register for the demo. I will include what was shown at the bottom of both the e-mails I received from Square-Enix:

    *Availability limited to the first 100,000 successful registrations. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.

    Interesting. I got two emails about the offer. The first (early last week)
    was all text, and said "limited to 125000".

    The latest (this past Weds) was all fancy with html text and graphics and
    said "limited to 100000".

    Hmmmm.

    (And no, I still haven't gotten thru... smile.gif
