Frequently Asked Questions
What is cleanroom testing?
Cleanroom testing is a QA method used by game developers to validate and improve the performance, consistency, and reliability of gaming software. Testers use cleanroom testing to identify the leading cause behind the bugs and minor errors in a game.
Why is regression testing crucial for gaming software?
Regression testing verifies the entire functionality of gaming software from scratch and identifies new bugs. With the help of regression testing, game developers re-execute the code and compare its output with previous outputs to enhance the performance of games.
Can you test the in-app transaction performance of gaming apps with HeadSpin?
Yes. With the HeadSpin Platform, gaming companies can create test sessions to analyze the in-app transaction performance of gaming apps. Gaming companies can also automate various customer user journeys with the HeadSpin Platform to understand the transaction-related problems faced by users while using their gaming apps.
What is recovery testing?
Game developers use recovery tests to understand how well a gaming application can recover from crashes, hardware failures, and other failures. In this testing method, a gaming application is forced to fail, and testers will check how it recovers from the failure conditions.
