1. READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING (pretty please)

Postby Drassen » 16 Feb 2015, 19:40

Why do we release this unfinished, slow, buggy version to supporters?
We have always had the intention to give something back to the supporters now and then. Now we a saw a possibility to get some help in testing and reporting bugs, and we already know that some people love getting the latest raw releases. So everyone will be happy hopefully :)

How often will we release new versions here?
The Android development is slow because there is mostly only ONE (1!) person working on it. And that person is only doing it on his spare time(!). So don't expect any miracles. Some weeks you get more than one update, and most weeks you get none ;)

How can you help as a beta-tester?
Beta testers have a responsibility to do 2 things:
  • 1. Be happy and supporting to the one(1!) person who does this on his spare time.
    (cheering when new versions come, zip it when new versions doesn't contain what you wanted ;) )

    2. Report all bugs in an orderly fashion in the turf issue system.
    (do not report that you miss/want functionality, ONLY report stuff that does not work)
What is the goal of this supporter beta phase?
The supporter beta will probably end when we reach version 1.0
This will happen when the app is stable enough and has reached a certain level of functionality. (the goal is that ios and android will be very similar at version 1.0)

What will happen to the current version on google play?
Not much, we only update that old version when we really have to. And when we reach 1.0, it will be replaced of course.

Tried it just now, good changes that have been made! I like the ones under "5. Misc" most which are issues reported to be somewhat annoying :-)

As you write that we should not report missing or wanted functionality, can you list what is in the app roadmap to v1.0 (if any new stuff is going to be in at all)?

the core idea of 1.0 is to fix all major bugs, but mostly to sync the ios and android apps in order to finally get a synced stable platform from where we can add new functionality in a synced way further on.

So basically we need to fix lots of bugs. But feature-wise we miss:
-tutorial (like ios have)
-event support
-some new graphics.
-a refined system for drawing lots of zones/cluster zones/etc. (this is a big one and will take time and effort.)
-maybe something extra if we find the time.
