Announcement: Beta testers wanted
« on: April 12, 2020, 19:17:55 PM »
Hi! The Unity version of War of the Solstice will be moving next week into a period of final beta testing...

We'll be looking for a small group of beta testers... if you wish to get access to download the current Unity build for extended play and helping to iron out any remaining bugs, then please send me a PM on the forum.

At this stage, the build is for the Windows platform only, although a Mac build is also planned down the line.

Recommended desktop system specs:
- Quad core CPU/processor > 3 GHz
- Free System RAM > 4 Gb
- Desktop GPU with > 3 Gb RAM (6.5Gb for Max detail settings) / SM5.0 / DirectX 11

Having said that, would be good to test on a range of different hardware/systems to verify actual performance.

Let us know if you're interested in contributing.
Many thanks and Happy Easter!

RAM: 8GB
AMD Radeon HD 7700 1024MB

Thanks!

Many thanks Kevin, appreciate your support over the years.

I'll add you into the beta testing group so you can revisit the 3D world of Midnight :)

Hi, I'd like to be included in the beta test, please. Doomdark's Revenge was the first adventure game big enough for me to become "lost" in.

Windows 10 64 bit
CPU: i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.9GHz
RAM: 16GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980Ti

Thanks!

Hi man! I have been following your page for, like, forever??? So I would love to betatest, if my baby lets me!

I confess, though, that I never finished Doomdark's Revenge, that is on my "do before I die" goals!

Anyway, I own a laptop so perhaps my system is not as powerful as the ones these guys above have, but it's rather decent.

And being confined at home as things are now, I can always give it a try! I particularly would like to test the accuracy of battle losses, If I remember it correctly, it was faulty in the latest War of the Solstice version.

Here's my lover's stats.

Windows 10 64 bits
Intel i7 6700HQ 2.6 GHz
24 MB RAM
Nvidia GForce GTX960M 2 GB DDR5
Intel HD Graphics 530 (so the game can be tested in an entry-level GPU)

Hey Nix!

Appreciate your support.

And hopefully the battle algorithm is now bullet proof after some major debugging took place last year :)

Welcome back and thanks for your support!

I've added you to the beta testing group. Watch out for distribution later this week.

Beta testing isn't anything other than access to a pre-release copy so that you can give it a good thrashing and report your findings and see what loose ends I may have missed :)
