The one used in my videos is very similar to the Alpha you guys have but I am pretty sure the on on the FTP only has 4 disks. I guess you can replicate my video using the leaked build as there is no visual difference.

The fifth disk is a special disk named "Paint". It has PAINT.EXE and several sample images with documentations. IIRC, the Paint disk was not used in the installation but it can be installed through a batch file. I did not make any videos or images of the Paint because it crashes every time I launch it.

I guess you can call the one in the OP fake because it was literally identical to my demo screenshot.
This community is quite disappointing. Please, lets not make it any worse by making mindless assumptions.

It is most likely fake.

I don't know how he said was contradicting. I was sure he made a post saying we are idots or something and he got banned.

is present tense. You would use this if you have the program.

"Lauched it." However, is past tense. You would this if you had the program.

???Such a farfetched explanation. Not everybody is perfect, making a grammatical mistake is common.

BetaArchive is a multicultural community and not everybody is a native speaker. Expecting everybody to have excellent Oxford-level English is certainly not the best attitude.

That grammar thing was a non-issue for me, I doubt his story because it's full of conveniences as usual.
