[Beta] Can the beta co-exist with the current release version? Mon, 28 April 2014 20:03
I am in the middle of some Online games. If I download the beta (on Steam), but my buddies don't, will I still be able to launch the current release version to continue those games or not? If not, what if I download the beta on another computer, would that work?

Thanks

You won't be able to finish your ongoing games if you switch to the Beta version, but you can always switch back and forth between the official version and the beta version. All it takes is to go to the BETAS tab of the Properties panel and opt out. This will re-install the official version. Of course, everytime you switch, you're good for a download...

Ongoing online games are stored at the server level, so you won't lose anything. You might just become a bit confused between games that were started with the old version and games started with the new version.

Therefore I would recommend that you finish your ongoing games with your friends and tell them to come and try the Beta with you :;
