Early testing?

Postby Doctor Azo » Tue Oct 13, 2015 1:28 am

The basics of AGNIM is coming on quite nicely and will have a functioning IM feature soon. However I haven't even begun on the games yet and I want real testing sooner rather than later. I also think it would be best for earlier testing to ensure things work as desired and to get a better idea of what users want. This might help prevent me spending so much time on something that's not going to be used much or require a major make-over.

The downside of this really is just those testing will experience a very unimpressive product, which might lead to some giving up on AGNIM sooner. Feedback is important for the development, but testing can complicate things and prolong it's readiness.

Overall this might be a good idea, as it's more important in the long term to get the most-needed features in first and stop wasting time and effort on things which is already wrong.

If you upload AGNIM and tell what to test(click on this button and see if it does what it should do) or tell you how do we like the interface, then I will gladly do that. However, I have to do things for school, so my ability to test may not be as high as you require.

Members will be encouraged to test it as thoroughly as they like. The main purpose for early testing is to see what needs to be changed or removed before I waste any more time on it, however finding bugs and such would be a bonus too.

AGNIM might be ready for early testing within the new few months, possibly weeks. Most likely there would be no games included at first, but after ET they (and other things) will gradually be added, with things that just won't work being stopped sooner rather than later.

I am up for what ever kind of testing that is needed for this and you have no need to worry about this

First thing's first: AGN forum update and iron it out. Then resume AGNIM work until I can determine when for early testing and set out a plan.
