There must be something in the air at SpiderWeb right now - scenario's are being churned out at quite a rate. And I'm here to do my part for the baby boom.

As you probably know, I've been working on a tiny scenario (3 towns, 1 outdoors) for quite some time now, and last night I lay the finishing touches to a beta version. Finally. Which means I need YOU (well, maybe not lord llama or those kinda people) to test for me.

So, regular drill people - candidates (and by this I mean people who want to play the thing) should post their email address, and OS. That's really all I need.

Oh,and testing shouldn't take long at all. I ran through the alpha in no time at all.

So, thank you! And watch this space for further sub-standard scenarii (couldn't resist!) in the future.

Edit: Oh yeah - my scenario is in Windows format, so if you're a Mac user (and heaven forbid), you'll have to convert graphics yourself. Sorry!

Oh, and I'll probably only need 5 or 6 testers, so once I have that many, I'll send the email out to everyone. I don't want (or need) 57 and a half testers.

Horrible pun.

I'll volunteer, if I can get something worked out.

EDIT: Couldn't get something worked out. Sorry.

You can try me. You might also let people know the time frame expectations you hold. Remember, it is World Cup time.

A week? It's such a tiny little thing, that everyone should have been able to play it by then.

Hmm. Looks like you've got enough Windows testers already, but if you want one more, I've definitely got time for a scenario that small:

I think that Lazarus won't mind if I also help test another scenario. Therefore:

Email: chniwe(at)hotmail(dot)com
OS: Mac OS 10.3.9

I would also be happy to create a .cmg file for the mac version of the scenario.

If i can start testing in two weeks (now I'm in the middle of tests), I'd be only happy to help. Niemand, can you send me the graphics too, please?

Email: b.j.van.soldt (AT) inter.nl.net
OS: you can choose: Windows XP or Mac OS 9.2.2 (but if you wait a few weeks, I'll have Mac OS 10.4.6)

Aw, heck, why not. I found your alpha interesting.

I am taking part in Lazarus' beta, and should also be working on my own, so if you have enough people, don't feel compelled to include me (it seems you have enough, but I'll post anyway in case someone drops out).

Thanks for your interest people. Email should be coming to the Windows users right about now... (click)

And, as for testers, I think that should just about do it. So sorry if you really wanted to test (heaven knows why), but I don't have need for anyone.

Oh, and I WON'T be using the BoA Testing Centre, so I'm going to be in direct contact with all of you by email. I may throw up a web-page with known bugs (if any or found, I was kinda thorough in my squishing) at some point, but nothing yet.

Anyway, thanks for your replies, guys.

Nikki xx

EDIT: Windows users should have the email now (That's Dikiyoba, Salmon, The Lurker and Niemand). TM and Ephesos can have it as soon as I get the .cmg file.

Ok, I think I got everything sent to various people correctly. To save time I sent it to TM, Ephesos, and Thralni, since it didn't seem that he had been sent anything, though hotmail doesn't seem to like his address very much.

I've just played it and got as far as I was able to. I've just e-mailed you about the bugs I've found so far. By the way, I forgot to include a message subject, so don't delete the Ducklord mail - it's not spam. ;)

You know, you don't NEED to send a .cmg file. We can make one ourselves (though it doesn't go the other way around).

Thanks to all who got back to me really quickly. All comments have been taken onboard, and I'm gonna edit dialogue and all that jazz later.

Salmon - you might need to reinstall BoA - I didn't get any unhandled exceptions at all.

Oh, and I don't think I'll be able to get round to updating for a couple of days due to family issues, so expect v1.whatever by about Tuesday.

EDIT: Agh, maybe Sunday!

Actually Lazarus put me in the right direction to eliminate the unhandled exception.

In this case, it was caused by a G501.bmp file in the Data directory, as well as one in the scenario folder. Bad mojo. I moved it out of the data directory and everything was smooth.

I'll send another report of the later stuff.

A double post about a duplicate file. How appropriate.
