    I have to apologise if I haven't had the time to beta test this yet, but this weekend is being as bad as it can, and it's not over yet :\
    However, I promise that I will seriously test this starting from monday. I should be able to dedicate several hours to careful testings.

    So you say ?? here instead of PM.
    To make us jealous or something?

    No. Since Hez said that the release is up to the beta testers, I just wanted to apologise if I will take more time than I expected. Hopefully the other beta testers are having more luck than me.

    probably not, I feel like they were just getting free prereleases than actually testing it. I hadnt heard from some of them in months.

    Hez: good to see some news man. I have been waiting for this since late last year. If you need an urgent beta tester to get back to you with an extensive bug-list within 24 hours then I am your man. PM over the download link and I will make it my mission. I really want to see this released. You are bound to get stellar feedback based on the herculean effort you have put into the game. Let me know.

    I could test if for you and have the results back in a matter of days if you're that desperate for the reports on it. I have some free time for the next week or two so it shouldn't be a problem.

    Really sorry about that... I know I've gotten some versions before. But if it makes you feel better, I don't have much time and I really never actually played them.. lol

    I'm currently on a low-end xp laptop. If you want a tester for that hardware, I'd be glad to report what I can.

    So far I'm on the 4th Zone with 36 bugs listed complete with pics. Is there any chance you could send me a version with a level select, as one of the bugs I found was that the save feature doesn't always like to save, and having to play through entire zones again to get back up to the one I was testing is becoming a bit of a pain.

    Ah that will make this so much easier, I've been playing through each act over and over again, taking different routes, using different sprite sets just so I can try and pick out as many bugs as possible. Having to restart was becoming a pain though. I may have a full report in the next couple of days, and it's pretty extensive at the moment.

    Hez: I'm guessing you did not choose me as a beta-tester due to not remembering me. I'm Sonic360 from Sfghq. Does that ring any bells? Would still love to beta-test the game for you Hez. I'm willing to write a bug-report as fast as you need. Please reconsider.

    My preliminary report is finished, I think I clocked up 47 bugs but I was speeding through some bits. I'll send it across to you tomorrow and then go through it all again at a much slower pace and see if I can pick up any more.

    Finally I had some time to check this out (seriously these days have been as bad as possible) so I just sent a preliminary report as well. Hez should be able to start fixing some bugs with Stephen's report and mine.
     
  16. I too have done a complete run through of every zone, and have sent a bug report.

    Hez should have plenty to look at. :)

    Well round 1 bug fixes should take me a day or two. Hopefully round 2 will be doable as well. By the looks of it, I may be able to get a release sometime in the next week or two.

    EDIT: Also, for future reference. Respawning with the amount of rings you had when you hit the star post, and shield and time etc isnt a bug, I did that on purpose. I figured it would be sweet to replicate everything you had achieved up to that point.

    Well since Hez definitely does not want me to be a beta-tester (perhaps he has enough) I guess I'll just wait with the rest of the guys for the full-release. Any idea when Classic will likely drop?

    That's an awesome idea. It makes you care that much more to make sure you don't get a game over and loose the loot.

    Speaking of game over, on a scale of 1-10, where would you put the game's difficulty?
