This week I started us on the road to Dev Preview. These are obvious things that I think we need to do before we give external people access.
Started work on Dev site
This site allows developers to register their gamemodes and maps under an organisation. This is like workshop except faster, more organised, more tailored to how we want to work.
Started integrating with new API
The end goal is no addon or map installing, just click and play. Like visiting a website.
End User Experience Testing
Conna started making a gamemode using the Steam version so we can find anything we definitely need to fix before we let people in. This has already shown a few obvious issues that will need to be fixed before we give people access.
This week I’m going to get Louie to do the same thing from a Hammer point of view to make sure that all works too.
Paddy has been using SFM and has confirmed that as far as he can see, that all works fine.
I’ll post where we are next week but I’d expect to have got the map download/install process sorted by then and started work on the big blocker bugs. My guess is we’ll be in a position then to start giving a few people access.
