You will usually be developing onto your own repo. Using your own repo instead of the original one is quite easy.
- 1.Display your main "gameserver" file on GitHub, and select "Raw".
- 2.Make a test user, login to it
- 3.wget your Raw link and chmod +x the script.
- 4.Edit your "gameserver" file by changing GitHub information to your username and repo and branch.## Github Branch Select# Allows for the use of different function files# from a different repo and/or branch.githubuser="YourUsername"githubrepo="YourRepository"githubbranch="YourBranchName"
Now, any command you run will get your own GitHub files, and after any change you make on your repo,
./gameserver ufwill grab new files. If you make a change and that
./gameserver ufdon't get them, it means you were too quick, and that your curl still has old files in cache; in this case, you'll need to wait a few minutes to get your modifications.
You need to make sure that all needed commands displayed in opt work properly. So just run
./gameserverto show available commands, then try commands one by one. A common procedure is to first work on command_install, then start, then stop, then debug, then details, then monitor.
If you found a bug, either you'll instantly know how to fix it, or you won't. And either it will be a bug caused by your own code or a bug into LinuxGSM itself. So let's address those cases.
- 1.It's caused by your own code parts and you know how to fix it: Just go on and fix it.
- 2.It's caused by your own code parts but you got no idea why: Use
./gameserver dev-debugthat will add a very detailed log into your rootdir that might help you figure this out. To disable the dev-debug mode, just re-run the command. If you still can't find why it's not working, come get help on Discord's #gsm-development channel or Github issue that might have been created for this issue.
- 3.You found a bug into LinuxGSM itself. First, you need to be sure that it's really a bug that affects every game, by testing with another game onto the original repo, otherwise, if it only affects your game, you will usually just need to add a clever conditional check to fix the issue.
