Yeah, I'm registered at the center.

That's fine if I get sent the next version. As I said, when I get it I'll squeeze in some time for it.

When can we expect the release of Where the Rivers Meet, Thralni? I could help with testing if I had an ounce of free time. I don't, you know.

Well, as its looking now, I don't dare to predict anything. Beta is going rather slow (I think, as I didn't get any report for some time now), and the next beta version of the scenario still misses a lot of grammar and spelling corrections.

I'm flattered by your interest in the scenario. I'm just curious why you said the following thing in that way:

I could help with testing if I had an ounce of free time. I don't, you know.
What I basically want to know, is if this has some deeper meaning which I should have noticed and didn't, or you are just saying you can't test. Its the "you know" part which interests me most.

forgive me this psycho-analyses sort of question, but I'm always curous about this kind of thing. Maybe I should become psychologist and not a biologist after all...

In English, the phrase "you know" often doesn't really mean anything. It's just something you say as a way of padding out a sentence.

Since school's over, I've been progressing steadily on your scenario. Expect a response soon.

I sent all betatesters an email. if you are a betatester (I didn't include you, Tyranicus and Dintiradan) and didn't get the email, then please tell me so. telling me by email is best, as i don't look at the forums that often anymore. Looking at the Betatestingcenter forum is a must! I, for some reason, have the feeling almost nobody is looking at it....

Miya: read your report, by the way, just didn't have time to answer.

TM: I am very curious to your report.

Um... why don't I get an e-mail?

Anyway, the situation is as before. My save is foobarred, so I'd have to start from scratch to begin beta-testing again. And if I was to begin beta-testing, I'd rather do it over with your new version than with the old one. You'll need someone to test the new version anyway.

Dintiradan, you said you would stop with testing, no? I thought you would stop altogether, so I didn't include you in the mailing list.

Anyway, it doens't have any use sending you that email now anyway. I gather you do want to betatest?

I guess I didn't make myself clear a couple of months ago. I said (or meant to say) that I was dropping out of the beta for the current version. Since I'll have to start from scratch, I might as well wait for the next version to beta.

Short answer: Yes. Send me the most current version.

EDIT: To clarify further, send me the version coming out in three weeks. By then, I should be done beta testing Lazarus' (and maybe Nikki's) scenario.

You'll do mine an hour after downloading buddy!

People, I really, honestly, don't want to put any pressure on you, but in a week I'll start with correcting and updating the scenario, and until now I got two full reports, and about three incomplete reports. I would like to have these reports next week, best would be the complete versions. If you can't send a complete version (or you don't think it will be complete by that time), then send what you have, so I at least can do something.

Also, I only got two or three replies to my emails. I'm still waiting for the others...

Most of what would be in my report is already at the boards, but I'll get back to you soon about the scenario as a whole.

School is FINALLY over, which means that progress on my scenario will be made during the next one or two weeks. I use the reports whicch I got until now (That's Dintiradan's, Tyran's and partly TM's, still waiting for TM's full report, though). All others that didn't send a report: I would appreciate it if you can send them, but don't be offended if I don't use them. If you send them in before I realease the second beta version, though, I will take them into account. This scenario has stayed around on my computer for too long already, and I want to finally release.

The present situation of my scenario:

I used all reports I have, and taken all advice into account. I corrected all reported spelling/grammatcal errors which, but also some that were not reported. I'll wait a while until I get some more reports before realeasin the current version of the scenario for beta. I'm espacially waiting for TM's report, as he said it should be almost finished.

Note that at the moment I'm mainly eager to get comments on the scenario's plot and execution. Spelling and such is welcome too, but its not my first priority.

I have been thinking if I maybe should ask fo more testers, as most testers I have now didn't send me any reply to my email, don't post at the BoATC, leaving me with no clue as of how far they have progressed with the beta.

Please, to all betatesters, post in this thread to say how far you are, when you think you will be ready, and send me at least a part of the report you hopefully already started working on. If I receive nothing, or too little to continue with, I'll ask for more testers.

I sent all betatester version 1.1.0 (hopefully the final version) of Where the Rivers meet. people who should have received it by now:

Dolphin;
Inthrall;
TM;
Lenar;
Nikki;
Dintiradan;
Ash;
I'm sorry, tyran, but your email again didn't work.

If there's any problem with the files, I'll send them again, but then unzipped.

I find this oddly reassuring. Instead of Yahoo having a major bug (ignoring my e-mail for a month, then presenting it to me), it only has a sporadic minor bug (mistaking a July e-mail for June, and filing it with June e-mails).

Sorry for the double post, but editing my previous won't bump the thread.

I'm having the same .hqx problem as before with Thralni's e-mail. Can a Windows user be so kind as to send me a .zip or .rar of Version 1.1.0?

dintiradan (at) yahoo (dot) ca

Thanks in advance.

It seems that I go on vacation later than I thought. Therefore, I'd like the reports not on friday (well, friday of course would be perfect), but you will have the time until next saturday, and possibly even longer, though you shouldn't count on that.

I have no idea why, but Hotmail is being a dirty little... I had the same thing with numerous emails yesterday, including ones to Thralni and Kelandon.

Hopefully you got it now...

Meh. I'd just as soon blame Yahoo as Hotmail. The first time I tried downloading the attachment, it quit halfway through and Windows declared it corrupted. Second time worked, though. I'm torn between blaming it on Windows, dial-up, and Yahoo.

Will re-begin testing tonight.
