You lads hear? Alpha 3 is 80% complete (according to website)!! Link: www.gpbeta.com/en/post/develop…

I can not wait for Alpha 3! I already use Alpha 2 (hotfix 4) constantly! Theres an SDK now, which could allow us to make our own plugins!

Something to note: The native language appears to be either Chinese or Japanese, so please don't get mad over bad translations, this guy puts in tons of work into this and has even decided to make it in english for us.

Help him out, if your language isnt there, start translating! :)

Can't wait for Alpha 3/Beta 1 release! Keep up the good work lad!

Having this exact problem, from United States, have Optimum as ISP. No browser lets me view the site incognito/inprivate or not, and IE says that my ISP's DNS server may be down. Kinda hard to believe when everything else works. TT_TT

Btw, really pumped to download the new version of this, so would mind doing the community a favor by making a MediaFire account and just posting the packages there? I would really appreciate it. >w<

:icongpbeta:
GPBeta Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
um... I think I know what the problem is.
Could you please have a ping or nslookup on www.gpbeta.com?
There might be something wrong with the DNS server or CDN...

BTW, the hotfix4 version is also shared over a Chinese net drive:
pan.baidu.com/s/1pJyljS3
I think you could have a try too.

Okay, this is the ping test, very saddening actually:

tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/ZABGB…

This is the NS Lookup, I'm new to this, so I left the Server and Port as the default values:

network-tools.com/nslook/Defau…

Btw, trying to install "Baidu Cloud Butler" with my limited knowledge of Chinese ... O.o

EDIT: Seriously could you please upload it to Mediafire? I'm pretty sure its free ... I'm trying to figure out how to make a Baidu account >.>

:icongpbeta:

Actually the url I click will not show the problem your network environment have, and you can download from Baidu net drive without installing its program.
But never mind, you're still able to download from the mirror server:
