Team FWV: Closed Beta Openings




Role call.

So having just packaged FWV 2.0 for Closed Beta phase (at a whopping compressed 128MB approx), I need 8 testers that will be readily available for the next 2 weeks.

I'm specifically looking for two teams of 5:
  • 5 for bug finding, you'll be allocated a particular aspect of the mod to test and must report back frequently and clearly where and how you find issues.
  • 5 for gameplay, you'll be expected to play the mod through from scratch (a new Fallout Save), without the use of any additional mods or cheats, providing feedback and refinements of tweaks you may find necessary.
I want to make this clear. I'm a slave driver when it comes to team managing. Team FWV is managed like a second job. Tasks are delivered to the developers, and they're expected to get the work done before the target date.
I expect if I grant access to an eagerly awaited mod and its pre-release project files, that this access isn't taken advantage of and results are provided.

A specific note to those looking to develop in the Games Industry; Playtesting in QA is a good way in. You can use mod QA experience on your CV's, and this is certainly something to put down.

So to make this clear, what am I looking for?
  • Someone readily available. Schoolwork, Life in general comes first, so if you have commitments, think strongly before applying
  • Someone able to take instructions and deal with targets. If I ask for a particular system to be tested before X/X/X, it needs to be tested before then. I can tolerate a handful of skipped dates, but if it comes across as general sloven access, I don't have much tolerance.
With all the above, and the scary crack of a whip beckoning, who wants to hop on board the TARDIS and give us a hand?

Apply by posting a response to the forum here.

I will not accept submissions in the comments below, via PM or any other means other than the forum Beta board.


Happy submissions!

I can almost touch it!
But no, I don't see a way of me finding bugs, I'll just be messing around with stuff and say AWESOME and find nothing, but hopefully, someone else will go, I don't see how could someone choose not to do this, like I did

Cheers for being honest guys :) I appreciate the anticipation, the quicker we get it tested and refined, the quicker it gets out, and the quicker we can get rolling with 2.5... which we have some VERY exciting news for...

inb4 OMG RELEASE DATE IN TWO WEEKS!!!1!

I was tempted to apply with my Ultra OCD Click on Everything Skillz, but I can't guarantee that work won't get in the way.

Hope you get 8 good quality testers instead of...you know.

it would definitely be interesting to test it out but with a random schedule at work I'm unsure if I would be able to or not so find some one good kick some bugs out and get us an amazing mod

The only problem with this is weeding out the people that just want to play the mod instead of the people that actually want to help and test.

Im pretty sure demeggy is going to get confirmation from all of the testers applying for the closed beta. Which also means he probably will have a criteria for testers, so I wouldn't think for one second that demeggy would allow just anyone to be apart of it. If it was my choice i would decide all testers to fill out an application for testing so demeggy can get clearer knowledge about them and what they plan to do once they have the mod and are planning to test once they get the chance to play through some of the missions.

I would be honoured to test fallout who vegas 2.0, I know the basics of computing and am very observant. You tell me what should happen and I'll find out if it does happen.
Thank you for your consideration,
