Testing and Dropbox

The Beta ALPHA testing for Princess Princess has begun! I'm happy for everyone's speedy reports and suggested fixes for the game! Most notably, Kyrsty for telling me about the restarting events by teleporting (instead of saving, for some reason I never even thought about it), Liberty and Decky's Dialogue suggestions and finally, YF's suggested cutscene reordering for the intro! I really thank everyone for their time!

I would also like to thank Dudesoft and Newblack for helping me with a very specific thing that I won't reveal just yet! Really guys, just thanks!

Also, thank you to TDS for all the major help (even tho he thinks they're minor >:V) he did for the scripts and my needs that are like, required FAST. I really appreciate it! For those who are curious, here's some minor screenies:






I have been in team projects before and I can't believe why I haven't ever thought about doing this myself. Using Dropbox.



At first, I was reluctant to start a Dropbox private folder sharing thingy because of many reasons. But I got tired of choppy means of updating everyone and my incredibly bad net. This was one of the greatest decision in my life, EVER. And because of reasons below:



It's so fast to transfer files over, beta testing was SMOOTH and everyone can test on the get go (Except save since they crash each other orz) and see if I missed anything. Updating is just super breezy. Everyone can share files so fast and just...it's just fast okay?!

It also serves as a motivation for the team imho because they know that something is happening to the game. This made everything just easier for us. Yes I'm just safsafafasf out of happiness, thank you very much for even reading all of it <3

Yay testing means it not too much further from being done, probably. I actually not sure about that but at least it means stuffs getting done, right?

Also that second spoiler thingy about drop box stuff, I read the part that said, "Erotic Syrnx______ pics" and I was thinking, "Oh wtf, I bet I know what's in there unfortunately..." while laughing. I wanna see to know if I'm right but if I'm right I'm gonna wish I didn't look in there. Especially after I know that stuff goes through your head after clicking on THAT in your blog thingy. Idk, but I thought that drop box picture was was funny because of that lol.

Anywho, hope the testing goes well.


The testing helps us fix the problems that were present early on. That way, it won't be hard for me to apply the changes where a lot of stuff are already in it! But the changes proposed so far worked and this makes everyone's lives easier :D

And maaaybeee about the dropbox one 8'D

J-man that was intentional, Liberty and NewBlack can attest to that, wahahaha~ (a lot of people miss it)
@Lyric *brofist*

@Hima Thanks for the suggestion! And I know! I can't believe I was so reluctant to use dropbox before. As for the site, I've been trying to use it but damn it's hard.
You missed scratching out the bottom part of SyrnxRalph. :P
Those are alot of screens. Awesome, ALPHA means we're one step away to having our Princess Princess game!
I can't wait!
I can't believe you haven't used Dropbox until now! I actually bought myself an account already, because it's just that good.

If you need project management tool, I suggest using Trello : www.trello.com It's free, and really really easy to use. I'm currently using it for listing features or feature suggestions, as well as bug reports. It's also really motivating to see each feature get done visually, letting you know that you're one step closer to finish the game :)

Some suggestion on directory listing, since I had problems with this when there are more assets.

Project Name
|
--- Code : Scripts, database, game scenario, anything programming or database related
|
--- Business : Stuffs regarding game's promotion/marketing. Review written by other people, etc.
|
--- Graphics : Name should be obvious

From here, you can create further subfolders to be more specific. I think it's much easier this way and I can find what I'm looking for easier as well.

Good luck finishing the game! Can't wait :D
