The team behind IL-2: Great Battles is pushing towards the end of development on three titles that the team announced nearly a year and a half ago with IL-2: Battle of Bodenplatte, Flying Circus Vol 1, and Tank Crew – Clash at Prokhorovka all now looking to cross the finish line. Jason Williams, the Lead Producer for the team, is looking for a team of special beta testers to help them push things across the line. Do you have what it takes? The team wants to hear from you if you do!
Become a beta tester
I’ve done some beta testing in the past and I want to let people know right away that it isn’t all that fun and it doesn’t really give you the preview of the software that you sometimes might think it is. Beta testing means trying the same thing, often repeatedly, until something breaks. Then you document it and file the bug. That’s the life of a beta tester and even community ones tend to spend a lot of time doing the same thing.
That said, it can be fun in its own way and certainly its rewarding to help push a product across the finish line. Especially one that is near and dear to many hearts and minds.
If you’re interested here’s the introductory message from Jason Williams and a link to the forum where you can get in touch.
We have way too much content and new features to test in our final push to complete BOBP, FC1 and TC. So we need to expand our Beta Team and I need to form Special Teams to focus on certain things. I need FRIENDLY and MOTIVATED individual volunteers and and Squadron-based groups who can focus very intently on specific items. You must also be able to follow directions and not make this a campaign for some issue you feel passionate about. This is about finding bugs so the sim works for everyone.
Please post in this thread if you can devote several hours a week over the next few months for focused testing on one of the areas listed below. You will be tasked with testing that particular content or feature until final release. If you do a good job you can stay on when we move to our next Dev. Cycle.Jason Williams on the IL-2 forums
There will always be something to test.
