Question: Any conflicts between Beta and Gold?

Post by ElegantCaveman » Thu Nov 14, 2013 4:15 pm

So I bought the game, but I also want to keep using the Beta (0.29.1) to continue my AAR.

Would this create any conflicts? Would they act as two stand-alone applications? Will I be able to choose which of the two to load from the launcher (as I recall reading something about regarding future test builds)? Something else...?

One of the last updates added the option to chose beta or release. I think this is what you want. Maybe you can ignore updates while you finish it?

That's what I understood I could do, but not sure if it just applies to post-release beta builds, or if I'm good with my old version.

I guess I could just install the game and see what happens, but I'd rather not take the chance of breaking my beta, on the small off-chance.

You can have them both installed without any problems as long as you don't install one over the other.

So the default path for the release and the beta should be different, correct?

Thank you sir!

So I can go into the beta and finish my game after I purchase the retail copy? I want to finish that one before starting a new one with the release.

Yup, they basically act completely independently.

You could even run them side-by-side in windowed mode and play two games at once. :mrgreen:
