monsoontide 03-05-2004 06:05 PM

Hi All,

I am seeking 6 additional testers to play test my Bast Castle SIEGE map. As I would like to make this map as polished and professional & fun as possible.


(See this thread for more info & screenshots)

Testers will be required to test the map for technical issues and more importantly sort out problems related to playability - Objective completion, chokepoints on map, team balance etc.
I specifically require people who are willing to test as a team - communicate with others in the team and bring all the issues to my attention for fixing / altering / adjustment.
A readme will be posted to successful testers detailing my exact testing needs - as well as issues I am already aware of.
A FAST internet connection would be helpful.

I AM NOT looking for people who are only interested in downloading the map early (Especially since it still contains many minor things that require adjustment/fixing)

Since Andy867 has been kind enough to host the map for download and set up a server, it will be primarily up to him to choose testers.
Priority will go to people who have tested reliably for us before...

However, if anyone else is willing to host the map on a server for testing, (and tha map for download) I think we may be able to open up a second team of 6.

ALL feedback on the map should be posted to this thread.

A list of testers will be posted when all positions have been filled.
The next round of testing will begin next week as I am currently adding some fixes and changes to the current map that Andy867 & I tested last night.

Thankyou for your help. :D

Monsoon, there is no questio about it, I would love to actually TEST your map, and this is not a gimmick just to download it early.
I am also very honored to be the first to sign up for beta testing.
THX as always monsoontide.

Seemed like a great map when I first saw it.
Just to ensure that the map is 'pnutmaster worthy' (j/k;)), I'd like to give it a thorough run through.
If this turns out the way i'd like it to, it could be the next biggest and most played Siege map out of all.
So with that, I'm up for some beta testing.

email, if you need it:

OK... Two in the draw so far... ;)

ace_rogue1 03-06-2004 03:33 AM

monsoontide 03-06-2004 06:33 AM

Four and counting....

mergatroid 03-06-2004 06:52 AM

When will this be? 'cause I might not have the time (I'll check and tell you if I can't). But count me in, I love anything that has to do with siege.

ace_rogue1 03-06-2004 07:48 AM

i guess that means 1 more until anything else happens, i thought there would have been a mad rush to help here...

Alegis 03-06-2004 08:31 AM

I report in, I've always liked to beta test games and maps to be of any useful help. I'm in

monsoontide 03-06-2004 03:03 PM

Well... thats 6... :)

Anyone else interested?

I'm away for the weekend... Map is compiling latest version, which should be ready by Monday.

Will let you know where to get it when it's ready...

No-one else? :(

I'd love to help if you still need some one.

[FotF]Maddog 03-06-2004 09:13 PM

I would be glad to help beta test the MAP. My email address is and I have a cable conection. If not no big deal and good luck with your map.

monsoontide 03-07-2004 03:58 PM

OK... Will let the testers know when the updated download is ready + server details...

reapa 03-07-2004 05:39 PM

So is it ready? And who made it in for testing? oh and just to remind you my email is

Usurpo 03-07-2004 07:48 PM

I would assume he will let us know via e-mail...but thats just me. Then again, we have to keep in mind we ARE working with don't be suprised if a jawa shows up at your front door carying the secret information...

Domo-Kun 03-07-2004 07:49 PM

If theres still

monsoontide 03-07-2004 09:42 PM

I think the easiest thing at the moment is to PM whoever is testing. Then you can send me contact details later...

Just registering your interest in this is great!

Slight delay til Tuesday though... I was reworking some parts of the map and had it all compiled but one of the objectives stopped working. Have fixed that, but it will take another 24 hours to compile...

However, have added/fixed a few more things. The smaller pair of Turbo laser turrets no fire at the Jedi team, making the objective of turning them off now more imperative than ever!

Mostly fixed the shader on the Sith Holocron too.

OK... Compiling begins.... NOW! :)

Mongo05 03-08-2004 05:09 AM

Hi, my name is Mongo, and i see that you need some beta tester? I own 2 16 person servers and i would be happy to host this map and post it on my downloads page for beta testing...A few individuals in my clan and i have beta tested several maps made by some of our members and let me tell you we are a team! I could definitely host this map on one of my 16 person servers and make a detailed list of bugs and critical errors....If you need my help just email me at or AIM me on Mortalmort and my msn is

I appreciate your effort towards this wonderful map,

Well i cant wait for this to get underway, i just hope im included in the testing. Your very generous to offer your services mongo, im sure he'll want other testers, as more testers mean better quality...usually.
Oh and my email is if u wanna contact me monsoontide :p

Mongo05 03-08-2004 12:44 PM

yeah, and if we got more testers, we could get more accomplished in less time.... So that would be awesome..

monsoontide 03-08-2004 07:33 PM

Still Compliling :( (Lighting Stage)

Mongo05 03-08-2004 10:22 PM

So do you want me to host my server?

monsoontide 03-09-2004 12:49 AM

Yes! That would be great Mongo05.

Can I upload the files directly to you when it's ready???

PM me with details...

Fingers crossed it'll be done when I get home from work.

So hopefully, that will make two servers running it
Andy867' s & Mongo05's

Then two teams of six testers + anyone else the server admins want to add in.
(I'll keep it at two teams of six just so I can keep track of feedback from everyone as well as who has the map + 2 server admins makes 14)
So I think we can fit everyone

Then I guess, we'll need to set up some times for games - it's a little pointless playing by yourself on a team.
I did bot route the map just for testing purposes - though the bots don't go for the objectives. They can surprise you though!!!

Andy867 - can I upload the updated map to the same place???

reapa 03-09-2004 01:43 AM

So did everyone make it into testing and when and where can I download to begin testing?

monsoontide 03-09-2004 02:21 AM

"He will LEARN patience" - ObiWan Kenobi ;)

Still Compiling :(

Will check when I get home. Then upload tomorrow if all goes well...

ace_rogue1 03-09-2004 03:29 AM

wow this is gonna be big :D
anyway try to post game times in times for different time zones
ie i live in australia, so EST for me ;P

monsoontide 03-09-2004 03:57 AM


Just updating the pk3 and making sure it works - then I will upload it tomorrow morning.

Mongo05 - Do you have somewhere I can upload to?
Andy867 - CA I still upload to same place (Overwrite the one alrady there?)

Mongo05 03-09-2004 04:27 AM

yes I do! And i would be happy to let you use it just contact me by email.. or

Mongo05 03-09-2004 04:33 AM

The page i can upload it to is on my clans site and its the download page link....

monsoontide 03-09-2004 06:10 AM

Almost Ready...
Well, the map tested fine... (Apart from a few minor things I have to work on - mostly messages displaying to the wrong team - that sort of thing)

Mongo05 - I've sent you an e-mail. YOu can reply with the necessary details and I will upload it from work tomorrow.

Andy867 - I haven't heard from you for a bit - but will try the upload tomorrow. (Will try PM'ing you as well)

Yes different time zones for every test group would be great but would we only need one server if we do that?

Andy867 03-09-2004 05:15 PM

Well, its still OK by me to upload to my site, since it has plenty of space for the file.

Mongo05 03-09-2004 05:57 PM

Andy whats your site that you are gonna upload it to?

Pnut_Man 03-09-2004 09:05 PM

I'm thinking the upload info will be sent via PM's?

monsoontide 03-10-2004 12:32 AM

Stomach Virus
Sorry guys... another delay - I came down with a nasty stomach virus that's had me in bed all day... Starting to feel better and should be fine to go to work tomorrow where I can upload the files.

Will PM all the testers... Am just trying to write a quick readme so you'll know what sort of things to test for.

Thanks for your continued interest/patience :)

OK - Back to bed again...
