DEV STAGING SERVER
HOW TO ACCESS THE DEV BUILD
We maintain two public builds. The General Availability (GA) build, and the internal (DEV) build. The GA builds are derived from the DEV builds. The DEV builds are less stable than the GA builds, and contain new bug fixes, tweaks, features etc. After milestone completion and testing, the DEV build is merged and released as a GA build.
As both are released through Steam BETA, you can switch between the two at any time.
You won’t have access to the GA and DEV builds at the same time. It’s either one or the other. You can switch between the two builds by using the drop-down BETA menu in STEAM. To revert to the GA build at any time, choose the opt-out option from within the BETA menu tab.
The Dev Staging Server (DSS) is totally different from the GA game servers. So if you are on DEV, when you start/login, you are automatically connected to the DEV game server, with no access to the GA server; and vice versa.
- Run the Steam client.
- From the games library, right-click on the game, then select PROPERTIES
- From the BETA tab, select devstaging-internal DSS builds from the drop-down menu.
- Wait for the download to complete.
- Run the game as normal. The client will then automatically connect to the DEV server. If you have any connection errors, let us know.
