Coop mission testers needed
« on: March 13, 2009, 02:32:36 PM »
Greetings to all voice actors!

We're in need of testers for the current multiplayer missions.
As we'll need people we can trust for this, I thought it would be a good idea to ask you guys.

What are these tests about?
We're now starting the multiplayer mission production. The missions can not be tested by a single person alone.
Additionally, we need to get some feedback on the game itself.

Are the controls ok?
Which parts need to be improved?
Are there any ugly models/effects that need to be replaced?

There aren't many missions to play around with yet. We've mainly been focused on content production so far.
Many scripts aren't in place, even though many of them already work. (Like the corridor mode, or the 3d crosshair.)

Once the test starts, I'll open a thread on this board, where you can post bug reports and feedback. If that doesn't work out, I'll see what I can do to get us a Mantis bug tracker.

What you need to be a tester
Please check the policy first and only continue reading, if you accept it.
(on the bottom)

You'll have to install a SVN client to grab the (always!) most recent version of SoL from the server.
(More details will follow soon.)

Additionally, you need a decent PC, that can handle SoL.
Minimum specs:
1,8 Ghz Pentium 4 or AMD equivalent
1 GB Ram
Geforce 5700 or Radeon 9600 Pro 128MB
(No shaders!)

Recommended specs (it's a pretty high guess, just to be sure):
3 Ghz Pentium 4 or AMD equivalent
2 GB Ram
Geforce 7800 or Radeon X1800 512MB
(Shader 3.0)

When do we meet to play the multiplayer missions?
Probably on saturdays or sundays, when the most members will have time to take part.
But it would be great if one of you could organize some play-tests in-between the 'official' play-tests.

First things first.
Of course you are not allowed to leak out the current version or any file of the game. You may also never give your SNV account details to anybody else.

Do not talk about the missions, gameplay or any other aspect of the game anywhere but here in this non-public forum.
Actually, please don't even talk about test yet.

You may post screenshots, if you have the permission from Wanderer, Axem or me to post them.

If you want to take part in the testing, you have to agree to these conditions.

Really nice of you to consider extending this opportunity over to us voice-types!

While I'll be sitting out on this and will continue to wait quietly 'til there's a need for voicework, it's always great to hear new things on SoL's status, and I wish you all the best with continued development!
