Unity Port comes to Web!

Postby PyromonkeyGG » Thu May 28, 2020 1:23 pm

Today is a big day! Town of Salem's web version of the game will be updated to use the same client as Steam and Mobile. This means our web players will be playing with our latest client UI with all of its bells and whistles.

The new User Interface is more sleek. It provides quality of life features such as a Notes feature that lets you take notes in-game outside of your Last Will or Death Note, Player Numbers in chat, graveyard, and player list, and filters to easily search through the chat log.

What this update means for BlankMediaGames

For our team, this update means that Town of Salem is officially on one codebase and technology. Originally, Town of Salem was built using a technology called Flash using ActionScript3 as our coding language. Some may know that Flash is set to be deprecated at the end of this year, meaning browsers will no longer support it. This is why we have been tirelessly working on changing our technology over to the Unity engine. Town of Salem was completely rewritten in a different technology, using a different programming language in order to make sure the game can live on for years to come. Finally we have reached the end of that long road.

Working on this rewrite over the last couple of years has been challenging for our small team. Splitting work with adding new content to the Flash version of the game while also continuing our development with the new engine, and also supporting the new content on mobile meant that not as much content could be made. Now, we can work on features without delay. We no longer have a looming deadline over our heads for the death of Flash, and we do not need to duplicate work on two platforms. Hooray!

What does this mean for you, our players?

New content, new features, new cool stuff! Like any launch, there will be a period where we will be focusing on making sure the new client is as bug free as possible before starting on anything huge BUT with this launch you can already see the fruits of our labor with the new game mode: Town Traitor

Players who haven't used the new UI yet should allow themselves time to get used to the changes. Anytime a change is made, it is easy to want what you are used to even if the changes made are good ones. We think with time, you’ll come to love the new UI as much as we do.

We hope that everyone is excited for the future of Town of Salem!

From the BMG Team

Edit from Shapesifter13 5/28/20 11:30ish CST - Hey Townies! We discovered a bug with the latest patch we did that affects our free mobile userbase. It seems that if you had a Coven ticket it would not allow you to watch ads to play classic games. We are resubmitting to iOS and Android to get this new patch approved.


Edit from Shapesifter13 5/29 5:10pm CST - Hey Townies! With the large delays in the android release we have made some changes to allow users to play even if they are not on the most recent patch. This will mean that some of the new content/features won't be available to you, but you will be able to play the game now.

Edited by Shapesifter13 12:22 am CST 5/31/2020 - Android has released update 3.2.0 for android users, but due to a bug with this version we are going to allow users to still play with the outdated version. To prevent crashes this means the Town Traitor game mode will be disabled for Android users until 3.2.1 has been released. This build was submitted shortly after our 3.2.0 release was submitted, so hopefully it won't take them too long.

Edited by Shapesifter 13 6/1/2020 11:51 am CST - Android version 3.2.1 is out, and we have removed the code that allowed players to play on an outdated version, and hid the Town Traitor mode! We hope you enjoy this new mode as much as we enjoyed creating it!

It should be a pretty fast update, and the server restart is happening right now!

We are in the process of updating the server so you will get some strange stuff happening until we are finished.

Same, we are probably just getting pinged out due abnormal amount of connections or server still launching.

I just happen to be having the same problems with the extremely long "connecting to server" Im just assuming its either a bug or from the amount of people trying to get on right now, other than that I saw the beta and it looked amazing! keep up the good work. Also if you had the same name and password on the beta test as you did with the old flash version would that have caused some issues when you ported it over?

HI. I get the message to update it but I'm not sure how. Or is it because it's still updating?
