Near completion. Yes.

Personally I prefer wait for a definitive version of Rogue Dawn, better look for any mistakes or doing improvements before releasing the patch.

I dont like version 1, then version 1.1, version 1.2 and so, this is the worst when you play one version and then you have to play the next version to see the little differences, if so.

So Grimlock, take your time and release a unique and definitive and revised version :)

I get annoyed with that too,
Most recently it happened with Final Fantasy IV after a long time of busy stuff, I finally patched the game only for the creator to release a new one...Oiyyyyyyyy. :banghead:

Looking for volunteers for our upcoming release candidate play test #3

I'd like to start lining a few people up for play testing of the final release candidate.  If you're interested please post here, My Personal Message in box is almost full so PM's would be undesirable. 

I'll update this roster as people are added.  If you contacted me previously and you don't see your name on the list please let me know.  We'll probably put a cap on how many people will be involved but I'm not sure what that cap will be. 

Were looking for 3 types of testers, you can do any or all if you'd like. 

Casual
1. Play through game and give us a detailed impression of the game as a whole.  Keep a note pad open while playing and write your impressions and reactions in general.  Note any bugs you may run into.  Opinions on various aspects of the game pro and con should be expressed.

Bug Tester
2. Actively look for level design bugs, push the limits where you can, try to find perma-stucks.

Complete
3. Complete play through tester.  Like casual but you will be given hints to locate the hidden rooms and features of the game (or just a list of how many are in each area, TBD).  You would seek out these rooms and Easter eggs as well as all of the items in the game.  Basically we want feed back on how difficult it was to located these screens and such as well as what is described in the casual play tester description.

Current Play Testers (Play Test 2):

Trax
Metroid MST - Bug Tester
Mrrichard999 - Casual
MiKh
Infinitys_end
Dr. Floppy
Christopher Taber - Analogue Interactive
Smokemonster

New Play Testers Added (Play Test 3)

RHDN:

MegaManModelT101 - Casual
John Enigma - Casual
cospefogo - Casual
chikadubi - Bug Testing
020110 - Casual
J^P - Casual  (Video would be neat but please don't release until after official release of patch)
hossbags2 - Casual
Gamerhenky - Bug Tester
Ziko - Casual
seanph - Complete
w7n - TBD
el_seyf - Casual
tokyobatman - Casual
Ryan Williams - TBD
Link - Casual and/or Bug Tester
Sikkan - Casual
bohdee - Casual
Marcondes - Casual

Metroid Construction:

RT-55J - Complete
MollyAncalime - Complete
Kei - Casual
SacredHooves - Complete
Mayo-chan - Casual
SamplerInfo - Complete
RabbitBones - Casual
Tahazzar - Casual and/or Bug Tester
AuroraxPhilic - Casual and/or Bug Tester
Shinespark1983 - Casual
QwaserTresa - Casual
advancedpillow - Casual

I'll update this post as people are added to the list.


Update 1:

Thanks everyone for your interest and support.  I want to also point out that we'll be putting the names of all of our play testers in the final credits, it's important that everyone gets the credit they deserve.  Although, to be fair you have to actually follow through on your part and actually provide feedback to be included in the final credits.  Just getting the beta and not providing relevant feedback or replying with "I liked it" or "everything was good", or whatever won't get you in the credits.  Also we understand real life takes priority and that this is on a volunteer basis, if you sign on for complete but provide casual feedback because you didn't have the time you thought you would that's understandable.  If you want to help bug test and don't find any bugs just provide feedback as best you can, similar to a casual play through.

Also:  No distribution of the beta patch or ROM   we don't want an unfinished project floating around the internet....

Been following this bad-ass game for years, and I'm dying to do a casual playthrough of it.

Looking forward to playing!  Big thanks to everyone involved!

I can do it man! Let me be the one to find all the things through casual play. Also, I can try to sniff out any secrets if possible.

I suppose I'd be casual but I might actively look for some bugs once in awhile.

I've actually sent PMs to you earlier than this announcement. I don't think I want to play a specific role: If there is a bug, I'll report it, and I'll also post my thoughts on this hack.

That sounds like a casual play through.  I couldn't remember who it was that PMed me previously, thanks for the reminder.  Also, we'll all be communicating through email once we get going, hopefully that is acceptable for everyone, we don't want to put a bunch of spoilers out there in a public thread before it's released.

Yea, thanks everyone, we're still open for more participants if anyone else is interested.


To everyone who signed on so far: One thing I'd like to get feedback on specifically is enemy placement.  Since play test #2 I've gone through the entire game and reworked the enemy placement.  If anything is out of place or provides a sucker punch hit due to placement make a note of that so it can be corrected, likewise if an area is too easy or generally too difficult that's valuable information as well.

Been following this hack's progress since the very early day it was posted.
Now i signed up to this forum just to take my chance as a tester.
May I sign up as a casual player. I would love to experience the game as is (without hints) and log my overall impressions as feedback in order to constructively help the developement of this masterpiece :) ?

Thanks for signing on!  That actually reminds me of another point I'd like to make, everyone needs to keep in mind the reason we're doing this and that's to polish this project even further.  This may or may not be the final product so we need detailed constructive feedback.  We want to know what you like but also look forward to detailed constructive criticism with recommendations because that's the most valuable feedback, it gives us something to work with.

All we'd need is the email but I imagine you'll PM us the email once ready.
