Beta Testers Wanted

Fancy testing out the online 2 player version of Zilch? It's pretty much ready to rock but I do need a body of sensible people with a few friends who are willing to put the network game through it's paces. It's pretty much the same as the single player game but you get to play online with your friends. You can even have a little chat with them using the in-game chat. How sweet :)
So what can you do?  The first dozen or so people who express interest by leaving a comment to this post will get a password for the beta test area.  You should then arrange a time with a friend to both login at the same time and have a few games of NetZilch.  If you find a bug then you should do this:
  1. Check it's actually a bug.  See if it's doing something you don't expect it to do or something that it actually shouldn't do.
  2. Try and make the bug repeat itself.  If you can't make the bug happen at will, I won't be able to make it happen at will and therefore can't fix it.
  3. Get in touch, explaining what the bug is and, in as much details as possible, how I can make this bug happen for me.
I can't emphasise point 3 enough, if you don't tell me how to repeat the bug then I can't fix it.

If you're still interested then drop me a comment and I'll zip you access to the beta test.  First come first served!

Midge was talking about the beta test in kong, and i was like BETA TEST? WHERE. I highly enjoy beta testing and finding bugs and such, and have a very nice background and references if you need them.
