Elite Adventurer Volunteers Wanted for Browser Testing


#1

We need help staying on top of the bugs and inconsistencies across browsers. We playtest in Mac Chrome all the time and Firefox sometimes, but it’s a big game and we often don’t notice little bugs that come up in Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox, especially bugs that only affect Windows or Linux.

If you have some time to help out, please fire up one of these browsers, play at least five levels (any five levels), and try to break things. File bug reports on GitHub for anything that doesn’t work on another browser but does work in Chrome or your normal browser:

  • :heavy_check_mark: Windows IE 11
  • [ ] Windows IE 10
  • [ ] Windows IE 9
  • :heavy_check_mark: Windows Firefox
  • :heavy_check_mark: Windows Chrome
  • :heavy_check_mark: Linux Firefox
  • :heavy_check_mark: Linux Chrome
  • :heavy_check_mark: Mac Firefox
  • [ ] Mac Safari 6
  • [ ] Mac Safari 7
  • [ ] Mac Safari 8

Post here if you’ve finished a test run in one of these browsers so I can check it off.

I’ve played through the entire campaign, visited most pages on the website and completed all subscriber levels on Windows Chrome 40.0.2214.91. So far not received any issues that are browser specific.


#3

I’ve played through the dungeon and most of the forest campaign of Firefox 35.0 and Chromium 39.0.2 on Linux Fedora 21. So far no problems.


#4

Played through on IE11 up to forest. relevant issues opened.


#5

Ive played all the way up the way to forest on ubuntu chrome and no issues(ik it is not listed here but just for refs)


#6

Tested on Ubuntu firefox,no problems encountered yet.


#7

Hi, i have crashes on different maps with FIREFOX 35.0.1, i join 3 crashes reports and 1 crashes report copy for the name of map, sorry i forget copy/paste for others.


#8

Browser crashes are almost always related to running out of memory from what I have seen. Are you seeing them with the default code?


#9

Yes it is indeed a OOM problem but after the 3 different reports I sent I think it is memory leaks, the ccdump tool seems to confirm this hypothesis but I’m not a specialist about it and I just want to alert you to help. I’ll follow the nick advice and implement a monitoring system of memory for codecombat. If anyone has an idea for this I’m interested because Firefox does not create one process by tab.

Thank you in advance for your help

Using Chrome :
Since the begining, I have sometimes the level that slowdown until total freeze. I reload tha page and it works again Sometimes the full chrome is dead. Same, restart and it’s ok.

So on a regular basis, I have to refresh the page. More often on heavy level (multiplayeur for example).

@nick, you may also put a check on Windows Firefox. I played plenty of levels today, worked fine :smile:
