Topic: Testers Wanted for New Non-Linear Dialog Editor
For a while I have been looking for a high quality, easy to use, non-linear dialog editor. I have seen a few attempts to make some software like this, but I don't think they ever quite reached their potential. I started to develop some new software with the most current tools (Visual Studio, .NET 3.5, C#, WPF) to make a nice looking and functional non-linear dialog editor and called it Chat Mapper.
There has been a lot of debate and it is still common to develop some sort of dialog tree to sort out conversations, but these trees can get out of hand very quickly with too many branches to keep track of. I would ideally like to develop a system that is easy to look at and friendly for non-technical designers to write complex dialog.
Anyway, I managed to assemble a small team to work on this software and we have finally released a testable beta version today!
It is about 90% feature complete and I would love some feedback in the form of bugs and suggestions from anyone willing to test it. I could also use some example projects to package with the release version. I have set up a forum where you can give your feedback at www.chat-mapper.com/forums/ so please give your feedback there if you don't mind.
