IWD NPC: a call for playtesters
« on: March 17, 2008, 02:44:44 PM »
The time has come!

The mod is fully ready, and has been tested by magrat(well, three long fanfics about Xan should matter, shouldn't they? :) ) and yours truly. The only missing element is voicework.

If you'd like to play IWD NPC, you can do it right now!

What's the catch?

You have to post here(if you haven't registered at the forums, please, do so!).

This willl give you access to the playtesting room - and to the download link! Play to your heart's content, and after you're done, just post in the playtesting room with your impressions.



UPDATE 1: You know you've got it, if you see "IWD NPC Beta" in Icewind Dale NPCs forum description.
UPDATE 2: Sometimes jcompton has to eat, sleep and make The Broken Hourglass, so, if "IWD NPC Beta" hasn't appeared yet, please, wait for a few hours.

You knew I'd be here, right?  ;)

(Editing to add - with apologies for the O/T'ness of it - that magrat is one of my fav fanfic authors too, and hoping all this praise brings about a new chapter for "Happily Ever After", especially since I'm not quite sure I've recovered from Xan's fate in "Reclaiming".)

Woohoo!  A reason to install IWD... um, again (I don't think I ever finished it last time).   Gimme?  ;D

Me too  :)

I'm not sure how much time I'll find in the near future, but if I have any comments, they'll wing their way here on the double!

Well, that's it then. After I get back from the University, I start to play... Goodbye sleep, welcome Icewind Dale...

Edit: if it will 'work for me', that is. Now it doesn't, if it should.

I hope I'm not too late :)

I had to make sure my work is out of the way, and since I finally made my boss to give me two weeks of freedom I would be more than happy to help testing.

If you still need help that is!
Cheers!
