The BETA Branch - Helping test new features
When I add new features or bug fixes to the game, it's very important for me to test the game with a small sample of people that don't mind helping out before I push the update out to EVERYONE. If you'd like to get our bleeding-edge updates, or if I'm helping you to fix a technical issue, this is how you get the beta builds:

In your steam library, right click on Monaco and click on Properties.
Go to the tab called BETAS
Change the drop down to Beta.

When you restart the game, it should do an automatic update. If it doesn't, restart the steam client.

Thanks everyone, and happy thieving!

do you need a code to get the beta?

Yeah, it's asking for a code to enter.

You shouldnt need a code if you choose BETA. PRIVATE requires a code. Default is the normal one.

No, you shouldn't lose save data, however, be warned that by using the beta branch you are an early adopter of new patches, so it's more likely that I might accidentally break something.

Is there a beta update you want us to test, or are you just informing us of this for future patches?
Toxic Ghost May 14, 2013 @ 4:20pm 
I like to help but I don't now how :(

Well, yes, I just put up a new build on beta with a few changes:
*fps is limited to 60 fps, to prevent ppl with high refresh rate monitors from getting faster times.
*made additional changes to try to fix the directx error some users are experiencing on startup
*made a change that should help people that experience input lag

Is It just bug's fix's?
NoRepro  [developer] May 14, 2013 @ 5:23pm 
This patch is just bug fixes, yes, but future patches may include content changes

Content like level editor support for the workshop?

Sounds like a plan! I am all for trying to figure out how to break things, lol.
