What OS are you using? Unfortunately at this stage, the beta runs only in 10.3. I'm hoping to increase the compatibility with 10.2 in later versions...

My kid helped someone set up their webpage - which had 'some' for-profit sections on in. She invested almost a week of her time, on the premise that she'd get a 'free' membership. Only to find out the 'rules' had been changed to - have a 'chance to win' a free membership.

I understand how developers that are starting out don't have money to offer - for any help the they get from the community. But...

Anyway, I got pissy. Sorry. I hope you can give a copy to 'everyone' that DOES help.

So. 'Thousands' of folks beta test - your for profit product - for you, for free, enabling them to earn a chance to 'win' a copy - which is ultimately only offered to a select few - who you choose as worthy.

Uh, huh.

'Boggle 1.0.1' - 100% free.
'Nonplus 0.2' - 100% free.
It's users don't have to degrade themselves.

Tough decision.

Badpop -

I don't believe I'm asking anyone to degrade themselves by sending me feedback. I believe one of the reasons for having a review section on MacUpdate is for that very purpose.

I apologize if this came across as some sort of contest. I simply want those who do help to know that they will receive credit for it. I do wish I could afford to pay those who help, but the reality is, I cannot.

Thank you,
Chris

Although it does not have a lot of features, this game is quite addicting and playable as a beta version if you enjoy word games. So you "help" the programmer by playing a game--that's everyone's big complaint? Wish I had your problems. Why obsess over whether or not you have to purchase it later? Ah, but this is the generation that wants everything for nothing. We want musicians to make music and we download it for free; writers to write and we copy their words without attitribution; and computer engineers to create flawfless games, jam-packed with features, and then just give them to us.

This game is VERY addicting VERY fast. It's almost 1:30 am and I should have shut down a long time ago.

I didn't find any bugs to report (and I wish I had, to get a complimentary game). I cannot believe how long I sat here playing this, trying to beat my best score.

Although the features are minimum (hey, it's beta!), I gave the rest of the ratings a great score. Stability is great and the playability is addicting. I guess graphics and sound will be added later, but it's a lot of fun as is.

*ATTENTION*

I apologize to anyone who has downloaded this in the past two hours. Something happened in the compression of the file and has damaged the file.

A new file has been uploaded, and has been tested. I appreciate your interest and I hope that you will try to download it again.

Thank you,
Chris

Thanks. It had originally worked for me, but somewhere in the compression it was damaged. I only wish I had caught this, and a little sooner.

If you have difficulties dowwnloading by just clicking on the link, try control-clicking and "download link as" (or "save file as").

Sorry about that.
