As an awesome VIP Member ( which you get with being a Teaching Set owner) you also get the chance to join me in testing out some of the very latest Genki English songs. Everyone else will have to wait and pay for them. And for you, in exchange for helping test out some of the key features, spotting mistakes etc. then you get to download them whilst they are still fresh and in development! Thank you everyone for the amazing reaction to the new songs this week – it is so heartwarming to hear! 🙂
It really is all your amazing feedback that keeps me going.
And …. lots of you have been asking how you can add these new “first look” songs to your Genki English menu.
If you’re up for an adventure and are great with computers, here’s what you do!
Keep in mind these are “first look” or “beta test” versions so there is no tech support here 🙂
- Backup ALL your software. You know it!
- Download the new MENU.ZIP file. Unzip it and drag it across to your Genki English folder, overwriting the existing MENU.SWF file.
- Then choose which of the following new “first look themes” you’d like to take a look at. Download, unzip and drag them across to the software folder.
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Baby Monkey’s Morning Routines
- Goldilocks and the 3 Bears
- The Musicians of Bremen
NOTE: This menu upgrade will overwrite any logos or school names you have on your menus, so don’t use it yet for the superclass packs. We’ll officially upgrade those once all the testing and mastering is done.
Your feedback is really important so please do let me know if you spot any tech errors, spelling/punctuation errors or indeed if there are parts you love, so I know what to change and what not to change 🙂
If you’re not good at computers …
If you’re not good at computers then please ask someone who is to help you out. 🙂 Genki English songs take a loooong time to test and develop. The Red Riding Hood song we’ve been working on for 4 years now! During that time we get to a point where they are 90% complete and that’s where these songs are now. However it is that last 10% that takes 90% of the time and effort. So rather than the songs sitting on my hard drive, I’m putting them out there for you to try them out, spot mistakes and give feedback. However the flip side is that I can’t offer technical support. If 200 of you write in to ask how to download a file then I can’t get anything else done. 🙂 Once the files are 100% finished and we’ve been through all the exhaustive testing and mastering, then it will be ready for everyone to purchase and use. Or just ask a friend who knows about computers to help you back up your files and get the new ones downloaded right now. Does that sound fair?
P.S. With all the amazing comments on here and Facebook how could I not do more…. so keep an eye out for something soon 🙂
