Sunday 24th Mar 2019
I’m up early for a Sunday as I don’t want this Cert submission to get delayed much longer. I think the build is almost there in terms of stability & being free from critical bugs, so I’m going to give it one final pass today and (hopefully) actually submit to Cert!
Taking a break for some lunch, non-stop bug finding and fixing today so far.
Back in the office
Still finding issues that would cause blockers during Cert testing. A good friend of ours has been helping with testing today which has been a godsend, and he's found even more blocker bugs that I cannot allow to be submitted to Cert.
Taking another break to walk the dogs.
Still just bug fixing and tidying up the build. It's never-ending!
Breaking for dinner
Back in the office for the very last time today!
How is it this time already? Today has been pretty hardcore I’m not going to lie, and I am feeling shattered. I just had to stay in the zone with this or I would have completely just lost track of everything I was doing (there are so many intertwining issues, it’s a little messy tbh).
I am very, very close to having a signed off build now though, genuinely. The submission has been slightly delayed and it's been frustrating to keep finding issues, however this Optional Cert opportunity is a big thing for us, so I don't want to waste it. I really feel that I'll be in a position to create a final signed-off build for Cert tomorrow.
Once that’s out the way I can move onto my next task – MORE BUG FIXING (ugh, genuinely that's what is in the schedule). To be fair, it’s not just that, next week I will also be looking at optimising the performance of the game, and polishing as much as I can......OK it is pretty much that. FML.
