The most shocking thing about this is that they are still using Perforce.
That was also quite shocking to me.
Like... wtf?

What's bad about Perforce?
It is not per se bad.

But it is a very complicated toolset for a rather simple job.
It offers a million tools on top of version control. Anything from task/issue tracking to collaborative source file editing. And you kinda have to learn it all to get anything out of the money you pay.
But I've never seen or heard of teams that actually do use all the tools it offers.
Most I've seen (and talked to) just used it as a more elaborate git client.

IMO, teams are better off just using git + JIRA (or another task tracker) for the majority of project needs. Collaborative source editing, for example, sounds amazing technically but I don't think it is ever used in many projects.
Bit of a solution in search of a problem. Which of course makes it sound just perfect for many inexperienced CEO types.
Then again, I just prefer simpler text editors with not that much auto help and a sleek command line to get the job done. I'm definitely not the target audience.

Gerrard can't be the incessant nuisance in another thread once you don't care about the game but outwardly stuff like rating posts ?

EDIT: :autism: detected indeed

I'm always suspicious when any dev team uses complex source control/versioning systems.

99.9% of teams only ever use the most basic features.

Your ignore list.
The source code is probably so shitty that they will have to rewrite large parts of it.


Hackerman: * leaks the code on 4chan *
Anon: ok mr. hackerman, now give the decryption key so we can use this shit.
Hackerman: but it is decrypted.
Anon: wtf


Allegedly, this is the tool used to hack CDPR servers:

No one will try to use their code to do anything useful with it for legal reasons, there was the case where people used the Thief source code to rewrite the Engine and create New Dark but they had authorization for that as the source code was made public. What will be actually fun to watch in here, if the hackers release the source code, is to see, first hand, how embarassing CDPR coding practices must be. I will surely enjoy savoring all that tasty spaghetti.

In fairness I suspect most big game projects are filled with spaghetti code.

I remember people acting shocked at how messy a lot of Valve's code was in the recent leaks. Gotta say as a dev myself, it really didn't seem anything out of the ordinary.

sounds in line with CDPR's bad management habits.
