I have something cooking up for msx2 and up and I need someone to test for serious bugs. I have come to a stage where I am nearly unable to find more game breaking bugs asides from the very rare falling through floors and stuff. There are some prerequisites for the job Wink

You need a mfr+sd or carnivore2 so you can test it on real hardware. You need to love platform games and you need to be the resilient type. This game is not easy and full of secrets and tricks.

Your msx needs to be a msx2 or higher and thats it. If you have z80 turbo, yes it is supported and so it will work.

You need to have free time. We are talking about hours of Crazy gameplay plus at least one hour of extras.

I don, t care about glitches and I do not care about the minor stuff. I am looking for serious game breaking bugs that crash the msx etc. Etc. I don't care if this game matches anything original. Everything in there is choice due to hardware constraints.

Furthermore if you only have z80 hardware i would love to know how playable it is in terms of framedrops etc. The engine is cpu heavy, optimized but still cpu heavy.

Last of all. You will need to be patient and be able to provide constructive feedback. So far @all everyone has been awesome.

Do NOT ask about the game or what game it is. It will not be answered. I will send you a mail with the rom and you will find out what we are talking about.

As the game is hard, is the test version's action hero immortal/has infinite lives/not go back to checkpoint after death?
In that case I can throw it at quite an array of computers. I just don't want to be stuck in the first level.

Edit: Forgot the skip level question. After testing first three levels on day one, one would want to continue testing from stage four the next day.

Well the game is as good as finished so cheats are out. However it saves to the flashrom so if you trow the cart in another msx your gane continues from the last save. You also get alot of extra lives and as added bonus if needed i can tell you how to farm 999 lives.

I do have enough spare time and shooters and platformers are my favorites on 8 bit systems. I guess one of them covers your game.
If you send it to me, let's discuss on which setup(s) you want it to be tested most Smile

I'd love to volunteer for the job, but time will be a problem. So I'll make way for the others. I'm curious as hell though, how this game turns out to be. Looking forward to its release!
