Oct 4 2017 - Former Member Beta Testing Begins
« on: October 04, 2017, 12:57:54 PM »
Hi Folks,
I think I have gotten the application to a point where it can stand well on its own two feet, but I need some individuals to test.

The requirements are:
1. You must be a former Emulator user that understands how the program works.
2. Can run it over the period of several days
3. Provide feedback of its operation, bugs, etc..

I have set up an official "Discord Chat" to facilitate live discussion of Beta testing: https://discord.gg/fJWYb4T

I'd love to volunteer, but I deleted my Discord account not that long ago. Will that be needed to become a beta tester? I can make a new one if I have to. :thumbsup:

Haven't been on the web site in a while.

Nice to see that this emulator will be back up soon...and will work with Windows 10!

I hope the forecast zones and observation sites have been fixed.

I think I can do it too. I have used the Weatherstar 4000 emulator before, so all I need to do is sign up for the Discord service and hopefully I can run the software on my computer, and report any bugs if nessecary.

You're welcome to Beta test the emulator, as long as you have a CINE account. If you do not, stay tuned as we are getting ready for the public release in the coming days. You are also welcome to join the live discussion on our Discord chat.

Brian, I am really glad to see that this project is going after all these years. :thumbsup: I definitely would love to beta test the program if I can since you know I have a CINE account if it's still not too late.
I've gone off on a journey to be a moderator at another forum, but this place will forever remain home for me~

If you don't mind me asking, how close are we to a release date?
