Unless you are interesed in play testing? That should start in the first 3 months of 2006. Greyshaft has agreed to honcho it and we might as well start taking names of volunteers now.
Lets get all the names in one place. It would help me immeasurably if people can answer the following questions. Note that we will need people from all categories including those who have never played WiF before.
1. Have you played cardboard WiF sufficiently to play independantly? If not, I will look to team you up with an experienced player who will undertake to answer your rule based questions. YES/NO
YES, completely independetely. I already 2 full 39-46 CWiF games with the old version. Playing the end of war was an experience.
2. If you answered YES to Q.1, are you willing and able to mentor someone who answered NO to Q1? YES/NO
3. Are you willing to be assigned one or more specific Test modules (eg Partisans, scrapping air units, Port Attacks etc) to test and undertake to test that module(s) for each software release? I will provide a written test plan which details those tests. Probably take about ten minutes for each Test module. Doesn't disqualify you if you're not in a position to do this. YES/NO
Don't know. I used to rather play games, and see where it was not as in the rules, or see where it crashed, etc..
But I'm willing to test anyway you'll say it must be tested. I'm not a professional beta tester.
4. Are you, or have you ever been a Communist? No! Wait! Wrong question! Forget I asked that.
Is this still existing ???
5. Preferred Name
Patrice. My name.
6. Preferred email

If we wind up with (say) 150 names then we will divide people into manageable batches and bring on a fixed number at a time while we ramp up the test programme. If you don't make the first cut it is not necessarily a comment on your suitability as a Tester but rather a pragmatic decision about the optimum size of a Test Team. In that case then bide your time... there is always attrition among testers,
All respondees will need to comply with standard Matrix conditions regarding Beta Testers eg First Born Son signed over to Erik Rutins, your Soul assigned in perpetuity to David Heath etc etc
You talk about the NDA ? Send me one (although I signed one with Chris Marinacci a looooong time ago too).
