Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar Weekly Update Sun 22nd Nov 2009 9:57pm

Category: Weekly Updates

Was in Sundays that I used to do a Weekly Update? I can't remember, and I COULD easily check, but, uh, I'm doing one now anyway... uh.

Anyway, I'm working on MARDEK 3 as I write this (it's currently Exporting in the background, which takes three or four minutes... I have to do that every time I edit the code and want to test it (with music; without music it's considerably faster)).
There isn't much left to do... Just sidequests, and some writing here and there.

I've written myself another schedule thing, of the sort that worked for me before. I make a timetable, and assign a few short tasks to each day that are easily accomplishable in an hour or two, and do only those things on the day they're assigned to. This is great, because it encourages me to do those things quickly in the morning so then I have the rest of the day free, and it doesn't seem daunting... Without such a thing, I think there's too much to do all at once and feel I should do as much as I can in a day, but I don't know where to start and it's off-putting, so I just don't get anything at all done.

Anyway, I don't know if it'll be done by Christmas, but from the look of things, I might be able to start beta testing on or around the 14th of December, if all goes well. I'm not promising or guaranteeing this, since I know how unreliable I am! But I can't imagine the remaining work taking any longer than that... unless there are some things I'm just forgetting I need to do?

So, uh, yes. That's close, isn't it? Relatively, anyway.

Apart from that, I've got nothing significant to report... Good to see that people seem to be using the new rating system thing often, fairly and accurately! I've yet to see anyone voting in extremes or 'trolling the system' or anything (well, except for maybe one person, sort of)...
I encourage you to rate EVERYTHING though, as I said before, even if it's just to give a 0 rating. Please rate every comment you read after reading it, at the very least!

If two words could be used to describe the double post you just did they would have to be epic and fail. The fact that you bothered to rewrite the comment to justify the first one's spelling and grammar would have been okay, the problem is- you didn't. Just leave as a mistake or at least rewrite it corrctly.

Apparently someone is misusing the orbs... from 2 comments below the one I'm typing right now downwards all or nearly all comments were rated +3 by someone...

I guessed that it might have been the 'cesar' person who posted before you, and that seems to be the case... A young newcomer who probably doesn't understand the system.
If he keeps it up, I'll revert his ratings.

Aside from people debating on who the beta testers should be i think you should just choose randomly.

No, what if a random system just happens to pick loads of people who aren't actually interested or anything? Would that work? No. I think you should do the way you did Raider 2, since I think that worked pretty well, but, it's Pseudo's choice.

Yeah, Henrz is right. You can't just pick beta testers at random, since most people wouldn't actually do what they were meant to. Pseudo will only want beta testers that are reliable and actually know what they're doing, not random people that just want to play the game before it's released.

Would there be a way to click on one of your orbs in the 'ratings recieved' and see wfor which comment it was given? Because I have this one red orb that I can't find wher it came from anywhere and I was just wondering if ther was a way to track which rating you were given for which comment. Also because that seems to be one of the only flaws in the system...Except for angry people who have nothing better to do with their time than to give people red ord ratings...

If you click on your number of comments on your page, you get to a 'comment history' page which shows all the comments you've made. From there, you can filter the results to only show comments with a certain overall rating... though if someone gave a -3 on a comment without an overall rating of -3, it might be slightly more difficult to find; you'd have to set the filter to show only comments with ratings, and check them all individually.

God, I could never be a game designer. I don't really do "scheduling". Not my thing. So for that I applaud you regardless of progress/conforming to said schedule. I can't wait for the release. Good Luck Pseudo!
