SnakesRock, i think thats correct. if they released the video, then it seems logical that most of the bugs would be fixed, which means that beta testing has started. \:\) but i could be wrong.

no, $@m, you're probably right. \:D and if the beta testing is done, that means VV3 will be released any day now! \:D \:\)

Beta testing is gotta be started. At least beta testing will be 20% or higher. But I could be wrong

But definately not finished! Did anyone notice that the chief "warped" from where he was put in the amphitheatre to just outside it after the message saying what he was lecturing about appeared? Perhaps it's not *quite* finished.. ;\)

I think it's important that the beta testing run until everyone's SURE it's perfect, as I've found that bugs can hide and the program can seem to run fine for ages, and then one day, out of the blue... \:8

I just want to say keep up the good work to all at LDW, and that it really will be the last day of work for me when vv3 comes out. Who needs to revise for exams when there are PUZZLES to solve!!!

Hi whoever can answer this

I am not asking for a release date.

Curious as to what is involved with Beta testing, How many people test the game. After errors are fixed then how many play it to make sure it is playing with out errors, how many times or how long. (50 people need to play it without an error before it is released or is it hundreds or do the same people replay it trying to do things differently to see how it reacts.

Thanks

I can't answer about LDW in particular, but I've taken part in several beta (and some alpha) tests for several types of software in the past.

Basically the testers will download the beta version and play it, reporting any bugs, problems, and suggestions to the software makers. They will look at the reports, fix the bugs, add possible new features, and make another version available for testing. The testers will go through the same process, checking that previous bugs have been fixed properly, and that no new bugs have crept in. The developers will again make a new build available, receive more feedback, and so on until the game is as _bug_-free and playable as possible. That can involve only one or two builds or perhaps several. Some software I've tested is in an almost permanaent stage of beta testing.

Once they are sure the game is as good as it can be, then, and only then, it is released.

There will be several beta testers to get as wide a variety of types of machine and player as possible. I don't know how many, though.
