New Dev Diary

New Dev Diary -

Codemasters has published another Dragon Empires "Developer Diary" - this week Peter Tyson speaks with "Sam" a 4-year member of the QA team.  Here is a snippet from the diary:

An important part of the development process is testing. While it is possible to release a MMOG to the public and let them test it early in development, it is much quicker and more effective to have a small focused team in-house to assist developers with specific debugging tasks and tests. The Dragon Empires QA team have been working on the project for the past year, well before Beta0 started, and have been diligently reporting bugs and checking fixes.

At first their tasks involved checking all the clothing and items on every character combination to make sure they all worked as expected. As you can imagine this was a big task and involved a lot of ticking boxes in spreadsheets. If they did find a bug they would make a note of it in a bug tracking program we use and bring it to the attention of the appropriate developer.
