The time has finally come. We will release the first beta version of the HTML5 runtime next week.
This post is a call to beta testers.
So you want to beta test the HTML5 runtime? Please read carefully what follows, and consider your decision.
- By being a beta tester, you commit to use and test the product. I mean more than once just to see how it works. We trust you to actively test the new versions we publish, with all the games and applications you have at your disposal.
- By being a beta tester, you understand that the versions of the software you are going to use are not in a final state. They will crash, your game will certainly not behave as normal (at least at the beginning of the beta program).
- By being a beta tester, you commit to report all the bugs you find in the product, in the best possible manner in the dedicated HTML5 forum (you will have special access to this forum once entered in the beta test program). You should report the bugs in a thread of your own, with your real name as a title. Like "Bugs reports by Francois Lionet"
- Once we publish the beta, you obviously agree not to distribute it. If your game or application works fine, Clickteam is OK for you to publish it, as long as you build it as a "Final HTML5 project". You must not redistribute applications built with other HTML5 build types (as the source code of the runtime is readable).
We will (what we have not done before in the previous beta test programs), remove inactive people from the program after a certain time of inactivity (like one month).
We will thank you at the end of the beta test program by giving you a rebate on the HTML5 runtime, or even a free version if you were really helpful (for example, 7 free XNA versions were given at the end of the XNA beta test program).
So if you agree with all what I just said, please send me a PM with your real name and your MMF2 serial number.
I will get back to you when the runtime is published, give you your HTML5 beta serial number and grant you access to the HTML5 Beta test forum.
Everyone at Clickteam thank you in advance for the help you will give us.
