Studio Accounts Management

BGA player account is not the same as studio account (even if you name them the same).

Studio Games Management

  • Game management control panel located in Gear link if you click on your Account circle, direct link
    • This allow to create project, delete project and manage projects
  • Access to other project source code
  • Access to frontend
    • Even if you cannot get source access via studio, you can see the java code, css and images asset by using Browser dev tools, see Practical_debugging
  • Push game to Alpha or Beta
  • Your project seems to be deleted after you came back a year after - create a new project with SAME name as before (you have to remember name) - it will be restored
  • You have permission issues syncing files, but you are admin - re-add yourself as admin via control panel. DO NOT delete yourself, just type name, select Admin and click add.
  • You managed to delete yourself from your own project - require admin interferance - contact studio (see below) with subject "STUDIO GAME ACCESS: <gamename>"
  • You want to take over abandoned game
    • Please first ask on dev forum - it may not be actually abandoned
    • You don't actually need to use that project, CLONE the game using control panel (create new project with similar name, copy over). If you don't abandon your project, finish the game and its ready to be published - admin can rename it
  • If you really think you need read or write access which you cannot get yourself - contact studio (see below) with subject "STUDIO GAME ACCESS: <gamename>"
