Pretty sure you'll get it with TU1, as it was never read you shouldn't have been cheated out of the skins.

Now it would be great if someone would confirm something like that...
I wondered why I didn't get all my Skins from the beta..

I hope people will get their skins after TU1..

crimson_omen
09-17-2011, 08:45 AM
yeah i hope the skins will activate ...a friend of my have all unlocks he have "unlocked" in the beta
...it is very sadly for me because i "unlock" all in the beta

i hope it so much.... :(

I don't have my beta unlocks either. I still have the player data on my hard drive, and I definitely unlocked everything. The only things I can think of that may affect this are:

The early access code I got for the beta was from the US (got one that was given out on Twitter), and I'm based in the UK.
I downloaded and played the beta on a different Xbox at one point, but afterwards went back and played on my system. Before the beta ended I checked the list on my system and everything still showed as unlocked.

It's definitely not a global problem either, as I was in a TDM game with someone earlier who was playing with Cole Train. All my other gold and chrome weapon skins unlocked as expected.

It was for both. You might not get your VG unlocks now because you played early.

tbh i have not heard a lot about not getting unlocks by playing it early and my pre-orders, like a lot of peoples i imagine will arrive a day early which means ill have to either sit and stare at the case or actually give into temptation and forfeit my unlocks.

that sucks ) :

Same problem here, got the game early here in the UK this morning and went straight in with my brother to do some co-op campaign. We both unlocked everything in the beta but only he got the unlocks upon pressing start. I've signed in and out on my own but nothing :(

I don't care about my VG unlocks, but I want my beta unlocks that I am entitled too.

Strange how it is unlocking for some and not others

I have said it before and I'll say it again. People should stop assuming and stick to what's known as facts.

You will find no official statement saying that people who play early won't get certain unlocks. I don't know who started this rumor, but very well done, I must say, as i spreads like a virus and even quicker then the Lambency achievement in GoW3. :p

Did anyone who got the game early take a look at the ingame event calendar? Epic warns us there could be minor hickups and problems before official release as they are still working on setting everything up.

Just wait for TU1 and if all the stuff still doesn't unlock afterwards, THEN you can start complaining.

Joe Graf did post in a thread saying that those who play before TU1 won't get any gold guns but the Gnasher from VG, although the other guns will unlock through their other methods. That's the only mention of a TU affecting unlocks by Epic AFAIK.

Beta unlocks with TU1.
Some people playing right now already have the beta unlocks, as do some people in this thread, and the TU isn't out yet. It's not unlocking for some people, but it looks like it should.

Saw a few people with Thrashball Cole and flamed weapons. I did not recieve my beta unlocks either. Its odd but I only cared for my other gold weapons. Anyone who has the game did you get the weapon skin unlock for the "Dirty Dirty Horde" Achievement in Gears 2?

AHal
09-17-2011, 08:17 PM
You will automatically get the beta unlocks with TU1 if you don't have them now. Rod confirmed this. I don't have them either. Hooligunn, CEO of GCON, is also missing his.

Don't panic. TU1 fixes the beta unlocks. Like I said, Rod confirmed this. It's all good.

If you unlocked it in the beta for retail or have the Veteran Gear achievement in Gears of War 2 you will have the Golden Retro.

You should be able to load the chapter you were on. It only corrupts your checkpoint, so just start on the particular chapter you were on. You don't have to start from the beginning.

.. probably 'German version' or regional issue, at least on both of my boxes I did not receive a TU to download when starting the game.

update: just checked again. 'nada' in Germany ... probably should have sticked with the PEGI version like usual ... man, that s***s. I just hope that I 'really' get my (I call them) missing golden weapons from my VG achievement for which I played my ass off during the last week.
Anyone around who played early, has the VG achievement and after the update has 'more' than just the golden Gnasher?

bloodot
09-18-2011, 09:26 AM
@Desert pengu1n: ... did you play early and only had the golden Gnasher before the update and now all four?

update: my mistake. Mixed him up with someone else.

I got the game yesterday. The Gold Gnasher unlocked for me when I started the game for the first time. Earlier today there was another update which unlocked the other gold weapons for me. However the flaming weapon skins and Cole Train character, which I unlocked in the beta, have not unlocked for me. :( I'm not too bothered about the weapon skins, but I'm butthurt about missing out on Cole Train. I do have Adam Fenix and Commando Dom, but I really wanted to play as Cole Train online. I just know everyone will be playing that skin online. I played in the beta from the day it launched until the day it closed, unlocked all the weapon skins and Cole Train, but I have nothing to show for it :( There is no other way to get Cole Train.

Is your beta game save still on your hard drive? Go to System Settings>Memory>Hard Drive>Gears of War 3 Beta and confirm that your player data file is still there and is for your gamertag.

If it is, you should have gotten them with the title update.

Also I am freaking sick of people say "that's what you get for playing early."

I BOUGHT THE GAME AT 10 AM PST TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 20TH! That is NOT EARLY. That is the global release date.

And yet for some reason I didn't get the VG unlocks. I got only the golden shotty. Not the other 5 golden weapons.

Hopefully they release a fix for it. Because TU1 did nothing

AlchemySolGod
09-20-2011, 08:36 PM

I didn't unlock them right away either, or my friend.

On the main menu press start for options, then scroll down to "storage location" then choose wherever your data was saved to (even if there is only one option) then they should unlock, worked for both of us.

I would really like to see an official confirmation on what's going on here. I also took part in the Gears beta and had many unlocked items, now they're all gone and not a word from Epic about the issue. Any mods paying attention to this? Is there going to be any kind of give back for those of us that have lost all that time spent playing the beta? Did I basically buy Bulletstorm for nothing? (the game wasn't that great, fun for awhile, but not great.)

How about some info.

Its complete bull****. I got my Beta and my beta savefile both on my HDD, and it STILL DOESN'T WORK.
Epic just failed horribly and now they aren't even giving out information about it...

09-21-2011, 02:21 PM
Not sure if this helps Epic, but I do not have any of my Beta unlocks and I should have all of them.

My son plays on the same xbox as me. He signed on before me, and he has some, probably all (not sure if all because I don't know how much of the Beta he played) of the unlocks.

Maybe there is something to this?

09-21-2011, 02:21 PM
I was unaware we needed to keep the Beta files and I was forced to format my Hard Drive a while ago. If I had of known that then I would of DEFINITELY backed them up!

In my opinion, I can't believe that a gaming company like EPIC Games would rely on the user to save unlock information. If it's not saved on their own servers somewhere so we can all get our unlocks eventually then I highly doubt I will be participating in another EPIC Games beta... :(

09-22-2011, 12:01 AM
I am also experiencing the same problems. I can't access any of my Beta unlocks.

After reading through this forum, I realized that the problem might be my Beta save file on my HDD. Apparently that file has become corrupted for some reason. I would like to know if there is a way to recover my data, and/or have access to my Beta unlocks.

I spent a lot of time trying to unlock the Cole Train, and now I have no idea who to feed all of this whole grain to. :(
