Are you a Master Spriter? Or perhaps a SFX Genius? Let's see what my little test has to say!

Download: Posted Image
Alternate Download: Here
Hope you enjoy, and don't forget to paste your results into your sig and post what you think about the test! I'll make improvements and add more questions if it gets popular enough.

Updates:
1.0: First uploaded. Enjoy!
1.1: Fixed a few problems and added another possible outcome.
1.11: Uploaded, just realized it's glitched. It'll be fixed within 25 minutes. Please bear with me until then.
1.2: Fixed the glitch. It now displays an error message at the end, but that shouldn't be a problem.
1.3: Fixed another glitch (the error message no longer displays).
1.4: It now tells you what you got while inside the game.

Update, December 2008: Sorry guys, but I have no intention in creating a new or better version. This thing is old news (like two years ago old) and I'm surprised the topic isn't completely dead at this point. Sorry to anyone who's dissapointed, but in all honesty, i made this game quite a while back, and so it isn't exactly top quality. On top of that, it's just a stupid quiz game, so please don't complain about it when you know it's never going to be changed. That aside, feel free to keep on downloading. And by the way, no, I will not be making a Vista compatible version.

At the end? That shouldn't be a problem since it copies it to the clipboard. I got no problems when I ran it.

Oh dear. That's not good. I'm not on a computer with GM right now, so I can't do anything about it. Could you check in here in about 25 minutes? I'll have it fixed. In fact, I'll PM you both when it's fixed. I'll also PM Phazon and Fedor since they seem to be lurking around this topic...

The sad thing is, I'm just posting that code to see what my results were. Next time, include the results IN THE GAME.

will edit with rating once I find out what I am.

EDIT: Hmm...prog master. Not quite what I was expecting, but oh well:

Not as much a test as it was a survey. And not being able to see your results without a forum or internet connection is just unforgiveable.

3/10

Humph. Didn't want to put it in. Seems like no one chooses any sound or graphic choices. You do know you can skip a question you don't want to answer by pressing ESC, right?

EDIT: Yes, it's possible to get other stuff. Example:
Posted Image Come find out what you are!

Also, someone got Game Tester but didn't post here...

You know, if I get at least 50 downloads, I promise to make 10 more questions and improve the graphics.

The test never lies! (not usually at least).
Well at least people are finally getting other stuff. I think I'll have it tell you what you are in the test. Gimmie a sec...

Sorry to double post, but no one be intimidated by the low download counter. It goes down to 0 every time I upload a new version.
EDIT: Abras and not_patrick, you don't have sigs. Why not put these in?
ANOTHER EDIT: 2 more downloads and I'll make another version.

Its a nice test, but I think most people already know what they like and don't like to do, still a funny test.

According to the test I was a "programming master" Not really true, I know how to program all the stuff I want in a game, but thats it, its not my most favourite thing (composing + spriting + level design are)

Well, then you should have answered some questions with none of the above. It appears that people choose untruthful answers for a lack of better. Pressing Escape answers "None of the above."
