As you may know, Caitlyn's Destiny is on the verge of being complete! It is quite the large game, and of course there are many bugs. Would anyone be interested in Beta testing ?(I think that's what it's called) Whoever does this will get full credit in the game as Beta Tester, in the opening and closing credits. Any volunteers?
I'll do it! Pick me! ;D|
Yeah, I got the week off, so I can spend all of my time playing it ;)
-Corby: I've sent you a IM which tells my email addy so you can send me the game.
Oooh ooh! Pick me! Pick me! I've got a few days of and upcoming exams. Beta-testing can be a good distraction between learning (if there'll be any learing... which will have to be. Darn :-\ )|
|Corby||Hmmm, I know you'd both do a great job! First come first serve? I don't know... pick a number between 1 and 10? I guess that's fair! ;D|
2 Testers find more problems than one ;) That's why Ninja Forever has (or should have) four.|
|Corby||That's a great idea! Okay, Kon-Tiki and Allen for Beta-Testers... although, I think I posted this a bit too early, the game won't be ready for another 4-5 days... hope you guys still have time then!|
|Joey||i guess i could do some beta testing too if you want.|
Thanks Joey, I think two is good, besides, I want the rest of you guys to play the polished version! :D|
Allen and Kon-Tiki:
I'll post here when the games ready to be tested.
|Joey||ok, thats fine. i would like to see the final version anyway.|
|Corby||Sorry guys, more delays... school... other stuff... game's still coming though. It's about 90 percent done. Sorry for the waiting.|
Take your time. I can't test it before the 17th anyway.|
Things I've found were helpful when beta-testing:|
I hope Andrew doesn't mind, but here's some of the testing scripts I've written out for his game:
I haven't followed all my tips above.. I was still kind of a testing beginner. I've got a couple for other games, but they haven't been released yet. so hush hush.
|Andrew_Baker||Thanks. It's good to think some good can come from that experience. As an extra bit of advice to potential testers: A lot of people offered to playtest for me, and less than half actually did. So, if you promise to playtest, please playtest. Of course, I've done the same thing. I never did finish some rooms for V that I promised to Cris Cromer. But I feel really bad about it :(|
I always finish the playtesting I promise... which is also why I don't do a whole lot of it... ha! ;D|
The last time I did a bug report was for the 13th Disciple. BTW, where did Capt@merika (a.k.a. Perry) go anyway? I loved that game!
|Corby||That's a very good list Nick, can't think of anything to add to that. It'd be great for the testers for my game to follow those guidelines.|
damn, I've worked too quickly and finished testing the two games I had to test. :) Well, if you need a 3rd tester after a week from today (got exams at the moment), let me know. |
|Corby||Cool, thanks Nick, I'll see... knowing me, the game will probably take that long to finish! I've been slacking off!|
