Alpha testing

Postby Admin » Mon Apr 04, 2016 5:53 pm

We are currently setting up the environment for the Dragon Lords 2 Alpha tests. Once we get the server up and running we'll be ready to tell you when exactly the test will start. We are aiming for Sunday, April 10th, however can't promise that yet.

We also decided that Alpha will be open for everyone who wants to participate, so stay tuned! We will be posting more updates within hours/days. :-)

We will publish links to download client versions for Windows, Linux, MacOS and Android. Unfortunately Apple still doesn't allow installing unpublished apps on non-test devices, which prevents us from including them in the Beta.

This is going to be the first test of the new hardware in the new data-center, so we are expecting the unexpected. :-) That's one of the multiple upgrades the game is getting, brand new, super-fast, state of the art server.

In the first stage of the testing we will be looking for obvious, game breaking issues. Problems with launching the game, registration, freezing, crashes and other critical issues. We will be performing first tests of the new Master server (new device management system, chat and PMs, all sorts of back-end features) as well as our Support Request system, which went through almost as big a change as the game.

Since both Master server and SR system are written by ourselves this time, we have implemented all the things we learned we need to resolve tickets quickly. Will have a much more complete player history, tracking multiple things, allowing us to easier figure out issues with account ownership, which are one of the ever-returning topics. In general, we will finally have a tool, which will replace gruesome work of manually going through server logs with neat report. It's a difference between 10 minutes of building query retrieving whatever data you need and having that data presented, ready to view.

I think I'm almost as excited about this new SR panel as I am for the changes in the game itself. :-)

It's working fine on my iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note 2. I admit, I haven't tested it on anything older.

I'd think the operating system is the key piece as opposed to the actual phone. Depending on the age, older phones don't receive upgrades. Testing outdated systems would be a huge effort with possibly very little value. I'd think Google would have requirements for what systems need to be supported.
