The OpenRA-forum integration will be offline for another day or two while some bugs are being fixed.
The "Failed to connect to the OpenRA Forum" message will go away once this is fixed.

Any ETA on a fix for the Harvester AI? I really want to play and can't til it's fixed. I'd switch to the stable version, but it isn't really stable for me, it crashes a lot. :-(

Already fixed on the prep branch. There are several other bugs that need to be fixed before a new playtest can be shipped, which are tracked by the next release milestone.

I've got to join the choire here: The playtest update is phantastic so far!
Unit micromanagement feels much more responsive now, and even though the pathfinder issues are still present, it's easier to play around them with near-instant reaction times.
Badges are an amazing idea for rewarding longstanding community members, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what can be accomplished with them.

Great playtest overall, most competitive players are having a field day with this!
Not sure how it will affect the casual playerbase, but then again, the changes might be too subtle to be noticed on the scale of a 5v5 teamgame.

Connect your forum account to as many OpenRA installations as you want and authenticate yourself to other players ingame.

Enter authentication key:
Paste the authentication key generated by your OpenRA install.


Where can I get the keys? sorry my english isnt good.

You don't need it to play.

But, if you want to, here's how:

Very happy with the progress!

I'd like to help the next RAGL or whatever other tourney to get to the $1,000 prize level.... I can put at least $200 in. I'd love to see more games available.

What is the next planned tournament? I'd imagine we will have a stable release soon.

If you have the latest release installed, there's an option somewhere in the menu to create a key and copy it to the clipboard (sorry, can't give you details right now, I'm on mobile atm). All you have to do is copying it to your forum control center, and you're set!
