Request: Beta Testers for Caster on Linux
Caster is now coming to a stage to do some limited closed beta testing- I've been beating on it with a few configurations and it seems pretty good, though I've got one or two things left to do to make me happy with the end result.
Therefore, because it's close, I'm placing a request for testers on this and several other sites- the window for requesting a Beta slot is until Monday of next week.
If you're interested in doing a bit of testing for about 1-2 weeks here fairly quickly, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your system configuration, including CPU speed, graphics card, distribution, etc.
The current target system is:
- 1GHz X86 or better
- 128Mb of RAM
- An OpenGL 1.1 capable card. (Heh... This doesn't do anything 'fancy' so it should probably do 'okay' even with a GMA950 with the right CPU pushing it...)

Reason: Boggled the mailto:
Normally I'd sign up but I'm suffering from a distinct lack of time these days so I'll have to give it a miss.
Hey man, im interested, but i have a question. Does it necessarily have to have opengl acceleration? My linux box is not working properly, and i'd have to use linux in virtualbox. Can it run in software mode?

I'll be on my laptop more often, being able to test between lectures and labs.
My first real beta test, going to give it a shot here!
Normally, this sounds like a great opportunity but there's just not enough time for myself on this. Although, I would be concerned with how the installer works (rpm/deb/sh?).
Real good news, Svartalf!
Why not. I'm in for one. Email on the way.
I'm currently planning on using mojosetup (Sorry, gang- logistics on trying to support all the differing packaging systems is going to be EVIL...), which while it makes it a non-participant in your packaging systems, it is one of the nicer compromise plays in that space. Moreover, the game's not big at all- it can comfortably be re-installed on multiple accounts without any appreciable pain involved.
