The Kings of the West mod team is now looking for several testers to help us with bug fixing, balancing, and a few other small things.

Previous experience testing is a plus but not necessary to be chosen. However you will need to be able to do the following:
-Be available to test the mod online in network games with other testers. Basically: you need to be able to play online and you will probably need Hamachi.
-Be willing to spend a few hours testing the mod every other day or every few days (anywhere from 1 hr up to 4 hrs; a normal game length)
-Be somewhat available for the next 2-4 weeks depending on how long it takes for us to balance the mod. If you are available less than 2 weeks it really isn't worth the time to get you set up and start to test only to have you leave.
-Be willing to report back to the mod team what you find on a regular basis.
-Love the mod as much as we do :D

If you are interested, please post here and tell me:
-Any previous experience you have with testing
-Any modding experience you have, particularly any coding experience (allows you to give a more detailed explanation if you encounter a bug thus helping me)
-Confirm that you will be available (ie not running off on vacation for 2 weeks or anything)
-Confirm that you have bfme1 with patch 1.03 and no mods that messed up your files (less hassle for everyone involved this way)

Then I will PM you to either give you the info you will need to download the mod and start testing or to say sorry it's not going to work out or we're full.

KEEP THIS TOPIC CLEAN. Double posts will be merged or deleted. Off topic posts will be deleted or moved.

Thanks everyone! :D

Any previous experience you have with testing
- No i have no previous testing experience.

-Any modding experience you have, particularly any coding experience (allows you to give a more detailed explanation if you encounter a bug thus helping me)
-No I have none, I have begun making maps for BFME I recently and I only know the basics.

-Confirm that you will be available (ie not running off on vacation for 2 weeks or anything)
No, Summer vacation ends in 3 and a half weeks and even when i HAVE school its only a few hours long and ends at 2:30 EST

-Confirm that you have bfme1 with patch 1.03 and no mods that messed up your files (less hassle for everyone involved this way) Yes I do and I have played your other two BFME 1.03 mods so this mod should work fine.

Also- i'm that guest you are talking to about my error.

I'm pretty familiar with the various terms and 'how-tos' in modding...my past experience is mainly with Rj-RotWK, and to a small extent RA (....).

I'll be able to test fairly regularly.

1.No experiance, no.
2.I'll learn, eventually........
3.Heck, school doesn't really matter yet, and even that I won't be busy at all!
4.I have other mods, but I will remove them just in case and the patch.

Ok, PMs sent. I'm still looking for more testers so until I close the topic you may assume that there are more open slots for testers ;)

Thanks all,

How big is the mod (in filesize)?

I would enjoy testing this mod. Been watching it, it looks very cool. Especially that leadership! I am making my own mod, so I do have experience. My only problem is that sadly i can not play on the internet, but i would be willing to test for singleplayer skirmishes. Observe enemy AI, suggestions on how to balance the AI, make it smarter, that sort of thing.

and my BFME I is clean and patched to 1.03.

and i'm on Revora almost every day, so you would get quick reports.

This mod is fantastic i waiting for the beta version :thumbsupsmiley:


There won't be a beta version; it simply wouldn't be worth it for us to go through all the release work and such. Instead we are going to do all the testing in-house, thus the reason for testers. The first chance the public will have to play the mod will be the full release.

Ok, at this point I believe we have roughly the number of testers that we want. However, if you have experience testing and would still like to join the team I will still accept one or two more experienced testers.

Thanks,
