Wanted: Beta Testers

I need a few ppl to beta test this first DVD for me, it is currently 95% complete

5 from the UK can have the DVD sent to them, others wanting to test can download it from me.

I need to get thoughts, ideas and bugs fixed

I'd be willing to test. I don't currently have a DVD burner myself, but there is one at work, so I could just plop it on my external 120GB HD then just plug that up to the machine at work and burn the disc. Will it be an ISO or the VIDEO_TS folder?

I'm assuming this is a PAL DVD, so I'd have to test it on my PC anyway, I don't have access to enough PAL-capable equipment to play it on a standalone.

I'll definitely give it a go, I could do with the excuse....although I'm not particularly knowledgable on the Demo scene

Sure you can test it

Either ISO or VIDEO_TS folder.. your choice

Once I get a list of testers I'll open an exclusive ftp account to just download that

Knowledge isn't needed, just an eye for problems or bugs (display bugs, audio sync bugs or menu problems)

The dvd isn't finished (still got to add the animated menus) but the majority is

PM me your addy and I'll post it soon

Either one's fine, I can play VIDEO_TS folders and I can mount DVD ISOs. So I'll take whichever one you offer.

I'm also assuming this is a single-layer 4.7GB DVD, as dual-layer drives aren't so widespread yet. My future projects will be dual-layer ^_^

This will be single layer and will also be in the original format, when I do the later dvd's I'll be doing dual layer and higher encoding & laced if I need to

I'll Rar it up so it shouldn't be much more than 2.5-3.5gb

I'll test it for you, Black Box or White Box Testing?? My University days... I don't mind downloading it, but I only get 31kps. I can run DVD's from my PC but I need my MPEG-2 card in. DVD Iso would be good for me. Could mount it on a virtual drive.

Let me know Mr Captive man,

If you need any more testers, I'd also like to give it a go. (I'm in the UK, btw)

I recieved mine today and WOW!

This really is a superbly put together project and Ive spent ALL AFTERNOON watc....erm testing it.

I have found 2 bugs and an annoyance.

1. Menu 2 - Cant get from Mental Hangover > Human Target with my DVD remote, I have to back the long way round if you know what I mean.

2. Menu 2 - Cant start the Despair demo. It wont allow me to highlight the 'Watch Demo'

A little annoyance I have is that on the demos menu screens the highlighting of 'Watch Demo' and 'Main Menu' isnt obvious enough and its hard to tell what your currently on (maybe its my eyesight). A nice highlight colour would improve this

This project really is fantastic and I loved every second of watching it!

Keep up the great work Bippy

I am ironing out the few bugs Dast has noticed and any I found, then the DVD's will be posted (hopefully Monday/Tuesday)

Sorry for the delay but I'd rather iron out the bugs I notice first

Right the archive is 3.3gb and is split into 64 Rar archives

I don't know what the best way to distribute this between the testers would be as my measly 30kb/s up is shit!

I was thinking torrent or something, but I don't know how to make it Private! any ideas?

(obviously this wont affect those I hope to post this to)
