Alpha Testers Needed
« on: August 07, 2014, 10:57:05 AM »
We are looking for a few good people to help with our graphics engine development by joining the Alpha test team.

To be clear, alpha testing to not about playing the game.  As a matter of fact, there will be many times you will simply be running programs to test various aspects of the new engine.  It really is not fun to do.  While it may sound exciting, it really is not.

It requires people to be methodical, and able to follow explicit instructions.  It also requires some time commitment.  It requires a decent knowledge of Windows, your computer hardware, and the ability to troubleshoot on your own.

If you think you fit, then please post in this thread to that effect.  We will be opening a private Alpha forum for those who wish to participate in this phase of our development.

Thank you for the consideration.

If you are accepted into the Alpha test program, a new forum will appear just below the location of the General forum.

I've got several computers with different configurations to test on.  I'd be happy to help.

INterested.  Not sure if my setup would be suitable (triple screen).  If it is the offer is out there.  

I know what I'm getting into...been involved in development UAT / QA testing over the years.

I'm sure it will beat what I use my evenings now for. In.
