Odyssey Alpha PC Specifications & Download Time

I was thinking earlier that perhaps they need to have alpha testers sign an affidavit or some form of consent form, followed by a 20 questions that have to be answered correctly to 90% or you're out. One of the questions would be: "Is this a finished product without any bugs or features missing? Yes No." Wrong answer disqualifies you. :D
Then again, people pay extra to alpha test so I guess FD gets what they, err, get for.
 
Will the game with Odyssey continue to support SLI? SLI works quite well on my Titan Black cards for the release game as it is now. They're getting a bit long in the tooth now though and would struggle to run the game well on one card. I know Nvidia has dropped SLI support on newer cards and games this year, with the last card to support it being the 3090, of all things. 😞

Can you see which part of your system is bottlenecking? Are there settings you can increase without any further performance loss?
 
Mine still says longer than the trip to Hutton.....
At least for Hutton you get a free Anaconda. But here...

Anyway, finally finished, and played a bit... performance a bit poor on my computer, but that was expected. Love the look. Really think Frontier got something good going on here. A lot of question marks in my mind how to use tools and whatnots. Had no issues with key-bindings. Took on a mission. Went for a Apex trip. Got to my destination. Got lost in the building. Got attacked and now stuck in a bedroom with doors closed and no button to open them... ROFLMAO!!!! Love it! :ROFLMAO:

Forgot to say, they started shooting at me after I stole some stuff. And I guess they closed the door on me for some reason.
 
Thanks Alec and SystematicChaos - I had exactly the same problem. Main game installed on SSD on C: drive but want Alpha installed somewhere else.

To be SUPER explicit with how to set up the link ('cos sometimes you have to scratch your head a bit over the syntax 😘)

  • Main game is installed on C:\Users\sinhedgie\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\ (note I'm using the FDev launcher, will be different for steam i suspect)
  • I want the alpha files to be installed on my D: drive

So I create a folder D:\EliteDangerousAlpha\PUBLIC_TEST_SERVER_64

Then I opened an elevated CMD prompt (i.e. run as administrator)

Then I ran the following cmd.....

C:\WINDOWS\system32>mklink /J C:\Users\sinhedgie\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\Products\PUBLIC_TEST_SERVER_64 D:\EliteDangerousAlpha\PUBLIC_TEST_SERVER_64

Again - sure others have figured this out if they needed to, just wanted to give an explicit example

Then ran the installation and the alpha installed on the d: drive.
I have the same issue with an extra on top: there is simply no PUBLIC_TEST_SERVER_64 folder anywhere in my appdata. I have Frontier Developments folders and one of them has this. I have tried installing Odyssey 2 times so far (3 hours down the drain so far), ran out of space both times. How do I mlink a folder which does not seem to exist...? :(

(I am seeing hidden / system files to that is not an issue).

This is not how I imagined this launch and my evening...
 
cannot install Odyssey...the game does not show up in my Steam library, and in store it says it IS in my library...this sucks. 😡
 
3rd time lucky getting 60GB free! In Odyssey we zoom in further on all the smaller things but the game itself is larger, hmmmm...

Cheers 🙂
 
It won't show up there. You'll see it in the Elite launcher.
And if you still don't see it there (like I and many others have encountered), you should make sure your Frontier account and Steam account are linked.

Once I did that, it showed up and I was able to get in! :)

To do this, on the launcher I clicked on 'Options' near the top and then 'Log Out Machine'. After that it automatically kicked me to the linking screen so I could link to my Steam account, and then Odyssey showed up on my launcher.

same here waited and waited and then somewhere down the line I realized my account is not linked to steam, went through process, Alpha popped in launcher instantly
