Ah that kinda sucks but relative to the alpha I will take it. I couldn't really play it at all with default keys.

The Origin BF3 FAQ states that there will not be any alternate soldier names in BF3, which is kind of weird.

And I HAVE to be able to bind knifing to a mouse button, otherwise I will not be fast enough to collect Kurgans' dogtag.

What mouse are you using? Any programmable mouse I have ever had just mimics keyboard inputs. So I set my thumb scroll wheel to / then set and ingame button to that and bam, working mouse hotkeys and the game never knows a wiser.

I got a code from an inside source. :)

What I learned so far:
Alternate soldier names is not in the beta, as far as I can tell.
Binding stuff to the mouse buttons is not working. Dammnit.
+You still have to join a server to get to the config menus.

+There are only around 60 people showing in the browser at this time.
+There are three severs showing in the browser hosting Caspian Border 64 player conquest. They are password protected.

Let me know what questions you have, I'll try to answer.

where did you enter this code? (if it was in the same format as the codes the rest of us will receive) and how big was the install file?

Those 2 are answered simply by a post i saw somewhere on the bf3 site. Caspian border is for internal testing only and the servers are only to be accessed by the correct people.

My mouse is a Logitech MX518. I have no idea if it is programmable. I guess I have to install Setpoint and see what it can do.

The early access beta is open as soon as you get your key. As for when you get your key, below was Posted on EA's US Forums by a forum moderator:

Hello Folks,

I have only just got off the line with EA in terms of getting some response to you guys about your Early Access Emails!
I've been receiving quite a bit of emails/private messages in regarding this lately, and the best response we can give right now is as follows.

Electronic Arts will be sending emails out with redeemable codes inside them, you will then go to this site and redeem the code in order to get access to the Early Access promotion.
Electronic Arts have already started sending out those emails, however most of you will start receiving your emails by midnight tonight(09/26/2011) in order for you to have them in your inbox by tomorrow morning (Tuesday 09/27/2011).

What are the requirements in order to receive Early Access?
In order to qualify for Early Access you must have played Medal of Honor Tier 1 or Limited Edition online and redeemed your Online Pass, or you must have pre-ordered Battlefield 3 via Origin before the 25th of September.

When will I get my email?
Sometime between Midnight tonight(most likely PST timezone) to the early hours of Tuesday morning.

What is in this email?
Information on how to redeem your key, the redemption key, and also a link to the redemption website.

Which email is this being sent to?
The email will most likely be sent to your EA Master Account's email, if you have linked your gamer profiles to that email.

Misc..
Emails will be sent to individuals who participated in the Medal of Honor T1/Limited Edition (Xbox 360/PC) promotion with information on how to redeem.

Emails will also be sent to the Origin BF3 Preorder users via their email, with information regarding that.
You will also receive a email if you purchased Medal of Honor via Steam prior to the 25th of July. Your key will be within your Steam Library -- right click Medal of Honor and then click "CD Keys" your code will be listed within that.

Currently I have no details as to wether Playstation 3 users will receive a email, you should see Battlefield 3 automatically popup within the PSN Network by tomorrow! (If you qualified, by the above).

__________________
Hope this helps some of your questions, if any more please don't hesitate to make a thread or private message any of the Battlefield moderators, and we should be able to provide information -- if we have it

PS; As always don't forget to keep an eye on Demize99's twitter, Zh1nt0's twitter, Our Battlefield Facebook page and also to reread the FAQ visit here.

On Origin, Redeem Product Code function. Once I did this, the game showed up for download in Origin.
The file was 3.9GB. Also, I could log in to Battlelog as soon as I redeemed the code.

It shows up after you enter the code EA mails to you in a few hours. Or already has mailed and will show up in your inbox in a few hours. Provided you preordered BF3 through Origin before the 25th or the special MoH edition.

Same here. Looks like I won't even be able to download it until I'm off work today now. Bummer ! At least it is pretty small download. Hope their servers don't get overloaded and crash. :twitch:

You have the option to order the physical discs on the Origin page.
Oh EA told me when I preordered (before Origin) that they only do digital.
Where is it as I can't find it ?
