So i’m about a quarter of the way through development on my game at the moment and have been thinking ahead a little bit.
I have been constantly testing the game a lot, even in its infancy, and have realised that so many little changes need to be made as you go along, little tweaks here and there to balance the game out a bit.
Now I’m not really anywhere near the stage of “save as runtime”, but when I do, is it possible to still make modifications to the game when it has been released. It would be easy to create an installer for the game, if needed, I just cant get my head around if there is a way to perform updates.
Is it possible for the exe file itself to this sort of operation, or has any one had any experience with creating another executable that deals with updating the game/ launching the game etc…
From playing games, I have learnt that users are the best ‘de-buggers’ of games, finding glitches and bugs that the developers wouldnt think of. Having the ability to update my game is not essential, I just thought it would be nice to know if its possible or not.
