I've got some great news.
So the developers are setting up a multiplayer game to be played each day. This multiplayer game is going to be a bit buggier than the normal build. This is because they are showing off, testing, newer features that haven't had as much debugging. This nightly build of Multiplayer is meant to allow the devs to test their updates better and more efficiently.
How To Connect:
To switch over to this, in Steam:
- Go to Library
- Right click CodeSpells
- Select Properties
- Select the BETAS tab
- From the dropdown "Select the beta you would like to opt into" select "nightly". (No code is needed, just select the nightly build option and it will work)
The mutliplayer nightly build is being hosted by a_lomo, it is not a 24/7 server but rather it will more than likely be up in the timeframe of 1-6 PM CDT. When the server is live, a_lomo or myself will post on this thread to notify everyone. To get these notifications, I suggest you either like, comment, or follow/bookmark this thread if you are interested in playing nightly builds.
That should be it! You might have to quit Steam and restart it to trigger the update.
Note: The build may not be up yet when this post is made. But I wanted to get this post made so you guys know what's going on, and can play as soon as the nightly build is updated.
As an extra note, this branch will be even more unstable than the main one, so if anyone ever wants to switch back, they can go back to that BETAS tab and select NONE from the dropdown.
Thanks @a_lomo for getting all this done for us
I'll be putting up a build this afternoon 0.800n. As Pat mentioned, it will be pretty unstable, but I'll be testing some major multiplayer optimizations and fixes.
For anyone that wants to join, I'll have a server running from 3 - 4 pm Central Time! I'll be on the Codespells Discord the community set up.
Edit: Changed time from 3 - 4 pm
We'll actually be doing the playtest today from 3 - 4 pm Central Time!
Awesome! I'll try to connect!
