Client is in

11 04 2007

We now have the first English client for Perfect World Online. Internal thorough testing will now commence. I’ll give you updates daily on our progress and problems encountered.

I installed it last night and it clocks faster than OTHER games with the same size

Here my machine specs for your reference:

512 RAM

64 MB Video

1.60 GHZ

Game Testing Team is already thoroughly playing it last since night, will do my share tonight. I’ll send updates through this blog.

so the translation is finished???

can we expect the CBT to start soon???

and it’s good to hear the it’s running smoothly on not so high end computers…

11 04 2007

@marc
Translation is not finished. We test whether the translation was mapped and flavored properly.
We have to check the presentability and playability of the game. Here’s an example of how we test the game’s playability

1. You go to NPC 1 for example to get quests
2. NPC 1 asks you to pick up/mine item A, B and C from mine source and bring it to NPC 2
3. You will get additional +10 good reputation

* Game breaker variables:
– Will item A, B and C from the quest dialogue be the same name encoded as that of the actual mine source drop?
– Will NPC 2 in the quest dialogue be the same as the NPC 2 as encoded?
– Is good reputation consistent with your character stat and the quest compensation?

see the article on Game Quality

As a simpler answer to your question, I wouldn’t set expectations for the timing just yet. I’ll update progress and together we can see if it is indeed playable or not.

W0w congrats
glad to here it is almost finished
can’t w8 for the PW

@ dolph
Thanks and you’re correct in saying that it is almost finished.
The client that we received is the first batch for the client. This means that bugs are certain to happen. This is when we measure whether it’s ready to be released to the public or not yet.

11 04 2007
zars

yes!! its almost finish!! btw… could you clarify that… so you mean your checking for bugs and misinterpretations before you release it? so that means the translations are done??

11 04 2007
Lix Tetrax

Uhm…
But will there still be CBT?

11 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@zars
yes the translations are done
misinterpretions, flavoring are not
bug checking is not
misinterpretations and flavoring is challenging because of the iterations involved.
The example i posted in the previous comment is one of the more simple example of misinterpretations. There could be a lot be instances for example of texts longer than the allocated box or stat.

11 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@ Lix
Yes there will be a CBT

11 04 2007
Lix Tetrax

Ok, Cheers!! and goodluck!! Hope to see the CBT soon.

So kung madaming bugs na makita trough CBT malaki chance madelay rin OBT? Sana mali ako.

i bet misinterpretation and flavoring is a heck of a task. i say take your time, dont rush it 🙂 go pw team!!

12 04 2007
H-UNIT

yay. the game is almost done. i think now it’s just playable to private because of the unchecked errors. anyway, im waiting for it coming up.
and one more thing, for those of you who are trying to update your windows into vista, dont do it yet because you may not be able to play this game in vista. 🙂

12 04 2007
Hi

yo, umm i got a message from perfect world team leading me to this site..PLS TELL ME I AM ONE OF PERFECT WORLD’S BETA TESTERS!!

12 04 2007

GM, I have a question. If I dont live in Phillipine, i cant play this game ?? as in this thread say [link]http://pwboards.levelupgames.ph/index.php?showtopic=36&st=0[/link]
i really wanna try the english version 😦

12 04 2007
sKilsDaTkiLs

wow, congrats hope we can finally able to play PW soon. but one question, is the open beta set date will be change cause the cbt is delayed for weeks or almost a month now?

12 04 2007

Sad to think I have to wait till OB. I wish it would still be on April 30 when the OB starts even if isn’t written on stones.

12 04 2007
ModSoul

Excited? Yes all players are and btw, thanks for the latest update about the client.

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Jalil
we do have estimations, but keeping it internal at the moment until we grasp the amount that needs to be checked. We’re doing an initial rundown of things delivered versus things we were expecting to have changed from the developers. Wouldn’t want to do another promise that we couldn’t commit

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@ viewsonic7
nothing distributed to the public yet. What we have is a client burned in a generic dvd distributed between workstations for those who are part of the testing team.
We’ll distribute them once testing is done or when it is deemed playable

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Hi
The mail just means that you are part of the e-mail database for Perfect World. If you have sent an e-mail to perfectworld@levelupgames.ph at any given time, it includes you automatically to the weekly update (unless you tell us to unsubscribe you).

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@H-Unit
I agree.
I don’t personally jump the bandwagon for software upgrades. I do get them and test on my personal machines but don’t make it part of my day to day task. Lessons learned during the initial launch of Win 3.11, Win 98, SE, and who could forget ME. I do get them once it stabilize. Oh, if you like playing around with application you should try WINE emulators

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Mistress
Yes, it is a good!

12 04 2007
Keouge

nice and congratz to nocturnalsun and other pw team for providing this good news for us. take ur time guys we’ll be waiting…

also about the the LUG CBT perfectworld@levelupgames.ph my friend own a computer shop and we already sign up for that…will my friend receive a email for that CBT account once the CBT start?

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Keouge
Your friend has a chance to be a part of the CBT, but is not guaranteed to get one. Right now we are collating all winners and generating all CBT accounts. Once the DB team gets back to us we will update all winners via the perfectworld@levelupgames.ph e-mail.

12 04 2007
Jalil

@Sir Oneil
I understand. Take your time XD

between workstations for those who are part of the testing team.
-how did you choose the “testing team” are they LUstaffs?

anyway grats on your progress, keep it up

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Rukia

we have two compositions for the testing team. Internal testers are part of a big group called game play specialists, the other one are play testers. Play testers are part of a big pool of players that are hand picked from their success at breaking down the features of the game into small detail. If you’ve read Bartels categorization of players they would excel being explorers of the game.

12 04 2007

ung specs po ba na binigay ninyo played on what level of setting? the lowest, mid or high level?

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@Cin
Played it in all settings. Will post a screen shot so that’ you’ll see the difference

12 04 2007
wynn

hmm. congratz to LUG staffs that worked to hard for PW.. ^___^
@nocturnalsun btw.. what’s the status of those clans that applied for CBT..

12 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@wynn
I now have the list, cross validating, should have winners by tomorrow. Thinking of sending the list once the client becomes available so that they have everything in one go.
Worried that if i send out a list without having the client available that there’s a possibility that they’ll forget the account or some other person would get hold of the account. They wouldn’t be able to play the game anyways.

What do you think?
Do note that these are privileged access and is very limited.

13 04 2007
rukia

I just hope the list of winners will be available tomorrow. I think its ok to post once validated.

Sir what if I’m a CBTwinner from GM Tristan/GM Wauks and I’m from the province, since the CBTkits will be snail-mail, most probably it will take days, will I have an option whether I want to get the CBTkits @ LU office or just wait for the mail? Since I can get it from the LU office I better do it myself than wait for the mail to come. I got a feeling the mail will take ages.

13 04 2007
nocturnalsun

@rukia
i’d say let’s just wait for the game to be fixed first or stabilized.
Yes, you can get the client from the office once they are available.
Testing is being done right so i don’t think you’d be able to have a copy of the client.

13 04 2007
Hi (again) #3

ok thanks for the info nocturnal sun, but i sent one with the info, but what if i gave the wrong information, like contact person and etc like that, i only put in my email adress becouse i do not want to give my phone number away, will i still have a chance to be in perfect world beta testing?

13 04 2007
Hi (again) #3
