    Hi. Recently I've been working on my game Alien John and it has come to a point where I need more people on my dev team in order to create the best possible gaming experience for the players. I want to release the game by the end of Summer so I can finally concentrate on studying in my uni. The game runs well on my system, but Game Maker is sometimes a resource hog, so I need to optimize my game properly, but I don't have a low end PC anymore so that's difficult. Also, the game is currently only available for Windows. I cannot export the game to any other system due to the fact that I need some dev magic shit in order to compile for other OS's (like a mac AND a subscription to Apple that makes me a dev and lets me compile stuff for mac, WTF APPLE?). If you are a fellow developer who is properly using Linux and/or Mac OS contact me.

    Anyways, if you want to help me in beta testing my game, post in this thread with a mini-resume which lists your operating system, computer specifications (CPU,GPU and RAM only) and (if any) experience in beta testing or better, developing in game maker. I will then PM you with a version of my game that you should check for bugs and stuff. If you then have any suggestions you may also post them in this thread.
    Thanks in advance!

    Sup! Thanks to all of the users who PM'd me and helped me with the beta testing. Thanks to them I have created a more stable version of the engine that in theory should reduce lag. Unfortunately, I am now in need of a broader spectrum of beta testers, specifically people with low end systems. If you have an old windows xp laptop from 2007 or something please reply to this thread OR pm me if you're embarrassed.

    That's perfect! Added you to my list.

    I need to add that people with low ram as well as 32 bit systems are needed as well.

    @AlanJohn what purpose do you think you have for this computer? i mean it's working fine, got a printer and diskdrives... i'm not sure anymore if it's the orange screen or the green... too long ago they turned it on... but still... all is working, never overheating.. it's a great system (as for it's time)... if your game runs on dos 1.0 it should be running on this system...

    If it was an IBM 5100 it could have been used by a friend of mine who needed to decode certain legacy programs. But I don't need that PC, sorry.
