Can this also be changed in the online version list please???

https://updater.factorio.com/get-available-versions

Currently still has this bit in it,

Code: Select all

{"from":"0.18.22","to":"0.18.23"},{"from":"0.18.23","to":"0.18.24"},
Is still causing issues if you use update scripts to push incremental updates.


F.e. a update from 0.18.21 to 0.18.24

We will look into creating update package from .22 directly to .24, but can you change the update script so it applies all updates at once instead of doing it incrementally?

Do

Code: Select all

factorio --apply-update /tmp/factorio-update.M7ZUpV8Q5P/core-linux_headless64-0.18.21-0.18.22-update.zip --apply-update /tmp/factorio-update.M7ZUpV8Q5P/core-linux_headless64-0.18.22-0.18.23-update.zip --apply-update /tmp/factorio-update.M7ZUpV8Q5P/core-linux_headless64-0.18.23-0.18.24-update.zip
Note: they unfortunatelly have to be passed in correct order (the updater won't reorder them)

Aye,

Wont update the script though, will do this one manually. but it's more for all the other scripts out there that heavily rely on that versioning file :(

If i do it manually, reverting it back to version 18.22 and then manually to 18.24 that works. but yeah, work-around.

Code: Select all

$ ./factorio --apply-update /tmp/core-linux_headless64-0.18.22-0.18.23-update.zip --apply-update /tmp/core-linux_headless64-0.18.23-0.18.24-update.zip

To be learned: never ever update the first few hours after a release - this holds for EVERY software everywhere.

Not a real problem for me, but it's annoying. But I know that early updates can be broken. :) User data and binaries were separated anyway.

This is why I have suggested to organize a smaller pre-alpha testers group that would get updates one day earlier (except hotfixes). Would it be an overkill for this software?

We are on experimental, because we are the testers wich report the bugs, wich stable users will never see.
Not updating whenever an update is available would defeat the most important purpose of being on the experimental branch.

It makes sense. Also, there should be an even smaller pre-pre-alpha to be sure the pre-alpha team doesn't get anything broken. Oh yes I know, a pre-pre-pre-alpha would be sweet too. :mrgreen:

Just joking obviously ^^

They are technically correct in regards to software release life cycles, it is an absolutely valid suggestion. I don't understand Factorio usage of the terms. From what I can gather pre-alpha is more in house. Alpha would be the pre-alpha they're describing and beta would be the product we end up downloading. That said Factorio 0.17.79 is still considered Alpha even though it is a stable release, I would think this would be a silver/gold product. In lieu of it not actually being version 1.0. It is the final build for .17.

I'm open to people railing me on this because I don't work in software development and I am just reading the Wikipedia here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_ ... life_cycle so all for learning. But generally based on that article it does seem skewed.

Going back more to doing a limited release, if it wouldn't put too much more overhead on the dev side I think it is an apt idea. There so many active users that use Factorio that selecting 5 to 10 participants to be testers wouldn't be too difficult.

When a post like this is made for the first 12 to 24 hours only people in the tester (and other applicable groups) could see the post. That way if any critical issues were to arise it can be corrected, and moved to new a release. If everything is fine then that version goes live. Just spit-balling here.

No doubts, experimental branch is very useful. But some bugs are just mistakes that are easy to find and easy to fix, and there are no benefits of spreading them over whole alpha-tester community.
Assume that pre-alpha testing is a kind of Wube internal testing, just external players involved. I'm pretty sure we could find some brave enthusiasts.

No jokes. Developers ARE pre-pre-pre-alpha testers, they always test what they've done. Hired internal testers (if any) ARE pre-pre-alpha testers. Just one step missed.
