    Pretty sweet. This should cut down on repeat bugs considerably. Plus it helps bring the Devs and Testers closer, allows us to keep track of whats being done, and gives us a feeling of more power than we havem thus increasing our morale.

    This is an awesome system! Alpha builds released so often!

    Now it's testing time! ...though, in DD's post the part "may break your computer" bothers me a bit. I understand it's an Alpha and quest corrutions and other ZC related issues are acceptable, but if there's even a small possibility of these Alpha's fucking up my computer, I dunno if I'm that willing to download any of them even though I have a big urge to test...

    The worst that could realistically happen would be quest corruption, or ZC hanging and dumping garbage files in your ZC directory, or completely freezing your computer until you hard reboot. But like with any program of ZC's complexity, I can't truthfully promise that there's anything that absolutely could not happen.

    Ah, ok. So I guess there's really no reason to worry then. I just thought there were something in the Alphas that may cause problems, but they are just versions of ZC that are a bit buggier eh? :)

    Oh and there will be more stable betas released every now and then between these Alphas am I right?

    Yeah my server tends to cap the downloading when it's under stress.

    Re: That box at the top of this forum

    I think it would be good if, in addition to the full releases, there were also "executables only" releases, so that people on dial-up (like me, for example) could easy try out a new alpha without having to download all the files that don't change (the DLLs, sfx.dat, 1st/2nd/3rd.qst) all over again.

    I just did a quick check, and in alpha 233, the executables (zelda-, zquest- and zlaunch-w.exe) weigh in at 2.39 megs, zipped, while the other files are 2.63 megs! That's over half of the releases which don't change!

    Now, granted, occasionally, they DO change, in which case the full release would need to be downloaded. But, that should be rare at best, especially since the bulk of the changes are going to be in the main three executables.

    ignore what the programs say, only follow the name of the zip file you downloaded.

    Right. These are intermediate builds, which will become b18 when the next beta is released. (17 got skipped for some technical reasons).
