Hello Campfire storytellers!
We just had an update a few days ago, but we’ve got a little one ready to go again!
There was a small bug affecting the “Days in a Row” statistic on Steam. As a result, some users weren’t receiving related achievements. This update contains a bug fix for these achievements. We thank you for your patience!
Steam Update Details
Some users wanted to have a file of their story saved locally to their computer, so these various options should allow users to do so! Some users were receiving errors and had confusion because they had not logged into Steam after launching Campfire. All users need to log into Steam one time after downloading in order to use the software. Users cannot access Campfire until they log in for the first time. A pop-up window with a Steam login will appear if you have not logged in. If you experience any issues with accessing Campfire after logging in with Steam, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to everyone who has suggested features for Campfire! We will go through the suggested features and implement them in order of demand, ease, and feasibility. We’re loving all the feature ideas and requests we are receiving on Steam. Another way you can request features for those not on Steam is by emailing email@example.com. Thank you all for your patience!
Thankfully, we haven’t had many bugs thus far! If you experience any bugs, we encourage you to report them on the Steam discussion page, or use the “help” tab and the “Report a Bug” tab within Campfire to report these issues to our software developers directly.
Overly Sarcastic Productions
We would like to personally welcome all the fans who came from Overly Sarcastic Production’s video who came to check out Campfire. For those who have not seen the video or would like to enjoy some great YouTube content on Time Travel Tropes in literature and movies follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kxs0Gis58FE&lc=z22cf1sbynrlgr1keacdp43bercbhzum2yub4hykvstw03c010c.1542474202230239
We’re excited to have so many members of the wonderful OSP community join Campfire! Thank you all for helping make our dreams come true, we hope Campfire continues to meet your expectations as we continually update it.
The Gender Issue
In our panic to fix bugs and make sure Campfire doesn’t break, we overlooked some important details in Campfire. Notably, the only options for gender currently are male and female. It has been brought to our attention this isn’t inclusive of other gender identities or for stories that have cultures and species that do not adhere to binary gender identification. We wanted to let everyone know, we are working on a fix for it, and we will push that update through just as fast as we can! Thank you for understanding and being patient with us.
Our intent is to be as vocal as possible with regards to our future plans with Campfire. We are currently working on an update roadmap and discussing the best ways to share this roadmap with users. The future updates will ideally give users an idea of what we are working on and when it should be arriving. Let us know on social media if you would rather see these developer discussions/update roadmap in a text form like this or as a YouTube video.
We wanted to throw out one last reminder to like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our YouTube channel, follow our Steam page, and check out our brand new subreddit!
Thank you one final time for making this such an amazing week for Campfire! We’re excited to embark on this journey with you all, and we can’t wait to see what you all create with our software! Quit reading this and go write some great stories!
