Apprentice beta-tester

July 22nd 2003, 07:04 AM
I've always wanted to be a beta-tester. I like testing things, searching for bugs, etc...
When I play a dmod, I spend a lot of time walking around cliffs, walls, water,... to make sure there aren't any bugs or secrets. I noticed a LOT of bugs and hardness errors in Stone of Balance... I wanted to send the complete list to SimonK but I lost my paper, and I was only able to send him the bugs reports I remembered. I think I'm ready to be a beta-tester now, but alas, I've got problems with Outlook Express and my internet connection, so I can't receive things that weight more than...let's say... 1,2MB! So, if you are making a dmod that weights around 1MB or less( like ThinkDink's and Glenn's dmods ) , I think I could test it. Be warned, I'm pretty slow at this ( It can take me one or two days to test one romp with a big map, I think it would take me around one week if the map is huge ( like Eternal Suicide Chapter Zero ) , but in the other hand, I can send you the complete list of bugs with the exact coordinates of the harness errors. Just send me the dmod ( ) and I'm on my way.

Thanks for reading,


BTW SabreTrout, I noticed a minor hardness error in A Knight's Tale 2. Screen 132, X : 554, Y : 229. Jarvis can go through the rocks easily .

Okay Ducklord, I'm going to send you the new and improved version of Rascal soon. (Which means some time next week.

Rascal? Great Dmod! But I noticed a LOT of bugs. I had to reboot my computer 10 times and I couldn't even finish it. I think it will take me.. around 3 days to test it. It does take some time to finish. If you could send me the source with it... I've been learning DinkC recently... I could try to correct some minor bugs.

I hope you didn't forget because I didn't receive anything..
