Stardew Valley multiplayer beta is a PC exclusive, and here is how you can have access to it. While waiting for the Stardew Valley multipayer patch (which is coming soon), you can, for now, have access to the beta version of Stardew Valley 1.3 update on Steam. The question is, how to access the game?
Steps On How To Access The Game
• Log into your Steam account
• In your Games Library, right click on Stardew Valley
• Select Properties -> Beta (see: https://imgur.com/a/H1gH)
• Enter the beta access code “jumpingjunimos” and press Check Code
• After this, select the beta branch option on the Beta selection drop down list
Publisher Chucklefish recommends backing up your save before you opt into the beta. You would not want to lose hundreds of hours on farming afterall. To do this, go to %APPDATA%\StardewValley\Saves on Wndows, or ~/.config/StardewValley/Saves on Mac and Linux and simply make a copy before you start trailing the Stardew Valley multiplayer.
It is also recommended that you remove any mods you may have on your Stardew Valley game for the time being. This will enable you to get the best beta experience possible.
How Stardew Valley 1.3 Works
The game features new items, events, and cutscenes from its creator ConcernedApe. Its miltiplayer coop mode is developed by publisher Chucklefish.
You can invite one to three players via Steam or LAN to work as farmhands on your farm. This can be done either by starting a new game or from your latest single-player save. Each will live in their own cabins but should work together to achieve goals. You can also scale the profit margin of your produce sold to adjust the difficulty level of a multiplayer farm. And you can also communicate using nearly 200 custom Stardew Valley emojis.
A Little Flashback
Lets look back on the beginnings of Stardew Valley. The game originally hit the scene in early 2016. It went on to become one of the biggest success stories in all of gaming that year. Its tending farm, quirky characters and retro aesthetic proved to be a winning combination. The game then spread to consoles following its big year on Stream. By the end of the summer, ConcernedApe announced that it will be releasing the multiplayer update by 2018. And of course, it happened. Stardew Valley multiplater update beta is now available and ready for download on Steam.
Cupertino-based Apple Inc. has reportedly seeded the third beta for its upcoming iOS 11.2.5 update. This means that developers will get the first-hand experience of the update.
The third update came just two weeks after Apple seeded the second beta and three weeks after it released the iOS 11.2. The tech giant said that iOS 11.2 fixes the HomeKit vulnerability and other bugs experienced by Apple iPhone users.
Apple iOS 11.2.5 beta update: What we know so far
With the third beta update, registered developers can now download the iOS 11.2.5 beta through over-the-air if a proper configuration profile was installed from Apple’s Development Center. Or the registered developer can access the update from Apple’s Development Center.
In case you don’t know, the Apple’s beta 2 for iOS 11.2.5 features a Siri’s capability to play daily news podcasts. Apple’s Siri offers news that is shared by The Washington Post. However, Apple users can also select other news sources such as NPR, CNN, and Fox News.
According to Apple, the beta 2’s audio feature can be accessed when an Apple user is using Siri by saying, Hey Siri. Siri can only be invoked when a user is using CarPlay or when a headphone is connected.
Also, Siri can be activated by pressing the side button or Home button of any iPhone. These are the features that we know so far. Apple has yet to disclose other features included in the iOS 11.2.5 beta.
What is certain though is that update will also fix other bugs found in the present iOS platform. Apple users are also expecting security improvements aside from enhancing Siri’s functions.
So five years was all it took for Google to finally shed its beta preface.
Google has just announced today that its applications which included Gmail, Calendar, Google Docs, and Google Talk is up and ready to tackle the world and is ready for prime time. Google engineers have finally given the go signal and are now satisfied with the applications’ performances.
So why did it take so long for them to get of the beta phase? According to Google’s product management director Matthew Glotzbach, they’ve “focused their efforts on reaching their high bar for taking their products out of beta, and all the applications in the Apps suite have now met that mark”.
If you’re guessing that there will be upgrades after this, guess again. There is still no word from Google about upgrading their enterprise applications as of this writing.
For applications in beta phase though, Google’s apps doing pretty well. The company boasts that some 1.75 million companies are already using their suite of enterprise software to this day and TechCrunch writer Erick Schonfeld notes that Gmail users have increased to an astonishing 48 percent in 2008!
