I was a beta tester for CWiF, Conquest.
I have worked as a software engineer - including unit testing, regression testing, and acceptance testing.
I have also done quite a lot of playtesting of borad games - such as WiF FE, and FoG.

I still have the Gateway 9300 laptop I used when I was testing CWiF, The DELL inspiron 9100 that replaced, and an ASUS EEEPC 901 (Atom, 2GB, W7 RC, 1024x600), and a Virtual PC on the main PC with W7 RC.

I currently have 2 email accounts - and could get more if required.

P.S. This will be the last recruitment 'drive' for beta testers before the initial release.

After a very long wait it will be good to see it released.

Hello, dear community,

i've been reading the threads on this forum for years but haven't felt the need to post anything since everything went the way I wanted it to be (except for the delays of course :D). I already wanted to sign up when the original request for beta testers came up but didn't have enough time to spare back then. This has changed and I would like to contribute to the overall effort, making this game a success. To answer Steve's questions:

1. Any previous experience in testing software.
Well, isn't every Microsoft customer a beta tester? ;)
Did some testing on enterprise resource planning software.

2. Your experience of cardboard and paper World in Flames
Recruit

3. Your experience with CWIF
Next to none.

4. Your PC specification.
a. Dual Core 2x 2,8 GHz
b. 4 GB (6 in October)
c. XP Home 32-bit (Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit in October).
d. Screen resolution for your monitor(s): 1680 x 1050

and

a. P4 3,06 GHz
b. 512 MB
c. Windows 7 RC (works very well with 512MB)
d. 1400 x 1050

5.
Multiple e-mail accounts, own 2 computers. Access to other PCs but with rather outdated hardware.

I meant for this request to remain open for 1 week. But I looked at June instead of August to find the first Wednesday.

The actual closing date is Wednesday, August 5th. I'll make the selections then.

I would be interested in beta testing.
1. Any previous experience in testing software. I have been involved in writing software for applications and websites for 10 years including design, testing, bug fixing, and document writing - no games experience but medium to large application software with millions of records. I understand the importance of documenting errors so that they can be reproduced on other platforms by other people.

2. Your experience of cardboard and paper World in Flames (we strive for equal numbers of Newbies and Grognards on the team) I would be a Recruit - played the cardboard version several years back - definitely out of practice.

3. Your experience with CWIF (Australian Design Group's ealrier version of a computerized World in Flames). Some - downloaded and played the game for just a few rounds.

4. Your PC specification. (just the basics): Multiple computers available:A> Intel Pentium M 1.73 Ghz 2gig ram, Vista Business, 1024x760, minimal video card.B> Intel Pentium Duo 2.0 Ghz, 4 gigs ram, Mutli-boot: Vista Business 32bit+64bit/Vista Ultimate 32&64 bit/XP 32bit and 64 bit, virtual server, monitor: 1280X1024c> have 3 other machines that could be used as well.
  5. Whether you have: (a) access to multiple computers for testing play over the Internet and/or (b) multiple email accounts for testing PBEM.I have both multiple computers and multiple email accounts
 Thanks,
Ken.

Hi, Here I am too

1. Any previous experience in testing software.
I used to be an informatician (now I am selling games ) so I have tested and written many softwares before (bank software essentially)
I was also beta tester for 2 video games some years ago.

2. Your experience of cardboard World in Flames (remember we need equal numbers of Newbies and Grognards on the team)
a. Newbie - Never played WiF but it looks great
b. Recruit - Playing WiF occasionally (or played a lot a long time ago)
c. Average - Currently playing WiF on a regular basis
d. Grognard - Rules guru

I would say between "b" and "c" : I am currently playing a game of WiF, but it is only my second FE game (I have played a dozen of 5th edition games though), and unlike most "wiffers" I usually play with few options

3. Your experience with CWIF (Australian Design Group's ealrier version of a computerized World in Flames.
a. None
b. Some
c. A lot

b : I have played the barbarossa scenario

4. Your PC specification. (just the basics):
a. CPU speed AMD Athlon dual core 3800+ (2.01 GHz)
b. RAM 3Go
c. Operating system Vista
d. Maximum screen resolution for your monitor currently using a 1280*768 resolution, I can go up to 1680*1050

5. Whether you have: (a) access to multiple computers for testing play over the Internet and/or (b) multiple email accounts for testing PBEM

only one computer but multiple e-mails

We are not accepting any more applicants at this time (August 5, 2009).

---
I thank all of you who asked to be beta testers. We had twice as many applicants as there are slots to be filled.

---
I will be sending Personal Messages (PMs) via this forum to the applicants we have chosen (13). If some of them have changed their minds, then I will augment the group until I get 13 who say yes.

Once I have 13 confirmed acceptances, I'll post the list of the people we accepted in this thread.

I got tired of seeing people on the beta team referenced in this forum by their first names so I started looking up the people accepted for the beta.

I show that there have been 73 people accepted for the beta test team:

The original 21 on 12/28/2005 (I assume Greyshaft was accepted even though he forgot to list himself)
2 on 10/19/2006
3 on 9/3/2007
11 on 10/29/2007
12 on 2/3/2009
13 on 6/6/2008
13 on 8/7/2009

Have I missed anyone?

Yes you have.
2 on 10/19/2006
Also I believe there were a few that was recruited that first half a year which were never announced.

One of your links didn't work. Here I hope I got it working:
3 on 9/3/2007

So at least 75, but I would guess some have resigned ...

The link should be working correctly now. I also found 2 more were accepted in October 2006.

That brings the total up to 75 accepted for the beta test team since 2005.

I wouldn’t be surprised that attrition may have taken its toll in four years of testing.

There have been people accepted who never filled out their Non-Disclosure Agreements with Matrix Games. Or who never got past downloading the game and executing it. There are others who participated for a month or so, then disappeared. Many beta testers have found the real world intruding on their time available to beta test.

This is an all-volunteer group so I don't lose any sleep over any of this.

Probably not shown on the list are some people who have been helping me on the side and who have priviledges comparable to beta testers (e.g., Peter).

In general, I have tried to keep the number of active beta testers between 30 and 40.
