Call for testers
« on: June 10, 2010, 02:01:17 AM »
Hello all,

We really could use some help here. We're adding achievements to Eufloria and need to test some of the conditions. If you don't mind having the award conditions spoiled for you, and you'd like to help us out, please let us know by posting a response in this thread. Any previous testers are welcome, and also anyone who already has the game is eligible.

Cons:

You may need to play through a few of the game's levels again, which might take some time.

Pros:

We'll give out some gift copies of the game to successful testers so you can give them away to your friends.
It's not much but you'll be testing the latest version of the game, which has a couple of new modding features - naming asteroids, text drawing, and bug fixes like planted seedlings moving with asteroids, and a porn mode.


We need quite a few testers, so please sign up!


(only joking about the porn mode)

It's no problem.  I am just delighted that more work is being done on the underlying game code.  :>  Exciting times!!!
Rest assured I'll be testing the achievements lots too - but as you might imagine the new scripting commands are a lot more exciting to me personally.. :>

I'm so making the Big Bang map now.

I'd like to participate. :)

I already own the game, so no extra copy is needed for me. Also, I can continue my work on the Portuguese translation. ;)

Quick question - What about the 'Unlock features' or whatever it is option in the main menu? I assume that the achievements will have some 'Reach level x', or 'Unlock a feature', so using the unlock option is just a fast-track to getting them.

Also, on a related note - Is there a reset game button or something? For those who did unlock stuff and want to do it by playing, not just clicking? Or if the achievements are blocked if you fast-track, so they can actually get them?




Did that last bit make sense?


EDIT: I can't really test it, I'm working on...other things right now. <conspiracy>

I assume you already have a native speaker of German for DE translation?

We may need a few more translators if the original guys lost interest for example.

Pilchard123: Unlock features just makes the levels available. You'll still have to beat them to get the achievements relating to that. Although we were considering putting in a button that just gives you all the achievements  ;D ;D ;D

There is no reset game button at the moment. The game complete ones will be retroactively applied; others require data that was never recorded before (so a reset game button wouldn't help either way) so everyone will unfortunately have to start from scratch on those. Level playing field at least... :)

Can I be a tester please? :D

Sadly I only work one or two days a week, but that means I'll have plenty of time to play! If it matters, I only have access to the demo because I don't have much money to buy a lot of games. I hope that doesn't matter though. Will you need my SteamID or..?

Thank you!

If you're still in need of help I'd be delighted to have a reason to play the levels again.

Yes, I must say I indeed am having great fun replaying the original levels, especially after having learnt so much by playing the whole campaign, DMM, skirmish arenas, and all those great user-created levels.
