Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

Write one post in this thread why you are interested in taking part in this.
If we deem your application both reasonable and sincere, I'll PM you 2 short questions you'll need to answer.
If your answers are satisfactory you will be accepted into the RC-testing and are welcome to join the testing team afterwards.

Putting my app in to test the turbo's and hopefully be a part of further beta tests. I have beta tested several genre's of games since I started gaming.
I understand that beta testers are used to purposely break, exploit and look for other errors and not just become a tester just to play content first. I have more than 3 hours a week to devote to the testing process. I have no issues documenting any bugs or issues found and submitting them in the format required.
I have built well over 100 different motors in Automation ( most were lost in the revamp :cry: ) Currently have about 30 motors built and have played most of the scenarios.
I'm not an engineer, I'm a gamer here to help make the game better anyway I can.

I do have one question, Whats a turbo ??

LoL kidding good luck everyone.

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I would love to test this out. I'm a huuuge fan of cars and building engines, and I've been looking for a new game to play, since I'm getting bored of the ones I already have..
I have beta tested before, so I know that when there's a bug, or something that might improve the game, to inform you guys, even though the last beta test I was in was a loong time ago.
But, yeah. I would just love to be a part of this, and good luck to everyone!

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I really like to join the testing team. I have been testing games in the past and like Automation.

I have an interest and school background in Automotive tech.

I also have my hours to spare right now.

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

Why am I interested in testing. Well, let's start by why I bought Automation.

This "game" is THE simulator I was looking on IndieDB. I searched for hours on the net, but it were nothing interesting. And one day, I searched on IndieDB and I found the Automation Game. I downloaded it and I created hundreds of engines. I learned lots of parts of an engine with Automation. I read your Twitter every hours, all Facebook news, etc... I also finished all scenarios (bronze minimum) in the game, and look for have all platinum !

I spend about 2 hours per day on my computer, all the day when holiday and week end. I have nothing to play for now, so I have a lot of free time to spend.
I know that finding bugs is not a pleasure. I already done this job for other games, and I liked it. Sure, I'll be inevitably attempted to have a little fun with turbos, but I will continue searching for bugs.

BUT, I live in France, so you should probably not speak with me because when it's midday at your home, it's midnight at mine.

Hope I'll have a positive answer, you can contact me by mail or Skype.

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I would like to help to develop this awesome game, making it as good as it can be and ensuring that the wide audience receives a flawless game.

I have got plenty of spare time and some knowledge in how cars work, this year I am starting college in mechanical engineering, but no idea in computing.
About the requirements, I fulfill all of them, but I would have to learn the automation way of documenting things, but I guess I could help and be useful!

I am Brazilian, so if you would like to have a portuguese translation to automation, I could help with that as well!!

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

Hey Guys!

I've been with you all since the before time of Automation staying up all night watching livestream (mainly for the beard)
I think its about time I help you guys out with some testing. :P
I'm willing to spend as much time as I can on testing the game as I can... Even if it means having NO social life and or developing strange disorders from the lack of sleep.
Anyways, hope you guys choose me for the team!

Ladies love a KA


Stay Dirty :P

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I would be honored to assist in testing the turbo aspect of the game. I have been waiting for turbos since the beginning of the Automation journey and pre-ordered the game when it first was released. I absolutely love toying around with different setups and trying to find little bugs here and there. My attention to detail is quite exceptional so you can expect that I am more than capable of finding something out of place or in need of tuning. I have a vast amount of knowledge on engines, although, turbos I do not have as much. Even then, I know once I start using it, I will get the hang of it soon enough and begin sourcing out flaws in the system.

I would absolutely love to be part of the turbo testing and I am supremely excited for the turbos to be released. Please consider my to be a candidate for your testing team. I play the game every day so I should be able to get at least 7+ hours in a week.

Thank you,

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I'm interested in Beta Testing. I'm always reporting bugs and glitches to game creators and modders. Also have the Forced Induction Preorder.

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I really want to be a beta tester! :D
I have some experience in testing software and am currently doing a degree in Computer Science, so I also have programming experience.
I can spend an hour or so a day on testing. Also I really love this game and so want to help with development in any way possible. :)

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

I currently am studying engineering and always recommend automation to friends who often find it really interesting.
A bit of background on my experience with Automation:
- I had almost all the platinum awards for all of the scenarios when the game was running under the old system with which on the first go, I modeled a 4g93 for my mate, and got the power within 2/3kw and 3/4nM of actual rated specs. I believe I posted it on the FB page and one of you guys responded to me :P
- I do enjoy perfection and although I have not played it much recently in the updated version due to uni in the holidays, accept nothing less than platinum for every problem I work through.

I have not done game development before however I would be more than happy to help you guys out as I can literally spend hours on this testing various things and pushing to achieve targets. Studying engineering and working on my own car a lot also helps me understand the physics of it so can therefore sense if some things don't seem right.

I also messaged you guys on FB recently inquiring about v6's and offering help in the form of sound work (or any way I could).

Re: Turbo Release Candidate Testing

Good day
I would like to get the opportunity of helping get this game up to the level that it have potential to get to as well as it deserves. I have never tried anything remotely close to this on a computer, but have been wanting a game like this for a number of years.
I am currently studying engineering at university and will take a master in Automotive Engineering in a couple of years and hopefully get a job in the automotive sector, and would feel like this can be a realistic enough game to help get the understanding of things that are thought.
I am especially interested in the financial aspect of the game since as we all know, "money makes the world go round", and I feel like this section is the most important part to get as close to perfect as possible. Since I feel like it is the main aspect of the game of running a company and therefore the finance needs to be good.
