In the rapidly evolving world of gaming, where innovation and technology intersect seamlessly, ensuring the performance, compatibility, and functionality of PC games is of paramount importance. In the first part of our series, we delved into the fundamental testing capabilities offered by WeTest, including Functional Testing, Compliance Testing, and Compatibility Testing. In this second installment, we explore the other two vital aspects of WeTest’s PC Testing Capability: Client Performance Evaluation and Automation Testing.

Client Performance — Evaluate Performance and Enhance Experience

A critical element in the gaming experience is the performance of the game on various PC configurations. WeTest recognizes the significance of this aspect and provides a comprehensive Client Performance Evaluation solution that not only assesses performance but also enhances the overall gaming experience for players.

Basic Solutions: WeTest’s basic solution involves collecting essential performance metrics such as Frames Per Second (FPS), CPU and GPU usage, memory consumption, and more, across different in-game scenarios. By doing so, it evaluates game performance on a spectrum of PC devices. The platform adeptly identifies issues like stuttering, frame drops, and bottlenecks in both CPU and GPU, ultimately streamlining the optimization process for developers.

Features: Comprehensive Basic Data This foundational approach ensures a broad understanding of performance, allowing developers to address immediate concerns effectively.

In-depth Solutions: For a more granular analysis, WeTest offers an advanced in-depth solution. Building upon the data collected in the basic phase, this solution drills down into intricate performance data such as CPU threads and rendering pipeline metrics. By pinpointing the root causes of performance bottlenecks, developers gain actionable insights into optimization areas. WeTest not only identifies issues but also provides optimization recommendations and solutions.

Features: Customized, Professional Data Analysis This tailored approach ensures that developers receive expert guidance for optimizing performance, resulting in a smoother and more immersive gaming experience for players.

Automation Testing — Improve Efficiency

In the modern gaming landscape, efficiency and precision are crucial in delivering high-quality games to players. WeTest’s Automation Testing solution is designed to expedite testing processes while maintaining accuracy.

UI Solutions: The UI solution offered by WeTest automates the testing process by recording and transmitting controller signals to different consoles. This feature enables cross-platform concurrent operations, which is a boon for smoke testing during development. The non-intrusive and user-friendly nature of this solution simplifies the testing process.

Features:

  • Non-intrusive and user-friendly
  • Pure UI operations for ease of use
  • Swift recording and playback
  • Multi-platform execution support

Customized Solutions: For a more tailored approach, WeTest provides the Unreal Engine GA3.0 Automation Testing Plugin. This plugin, based on the Python protocol, allows developers to craft custom automation scenarios using Python scripts. This level of flexibility and control is especially valuable for complex testing scenarios.

Features:

  • Plugin-based integration
  • Universally compatible with Unreal Engine across platforms
  • Ideal for complex testing scenarios

Conclusion

WeTest’s PC Testing Capability is a holistic solution that spans every critical aspect of game development and quality assurance. By offering Client Performance Evaluation and Automation Testing, WeTest empowers developers to create seamless, high-performing, and engaging gaming experiences for players. In this two-part series, we’ve explored the comprehensive suite of testing capabilities that WeTest brings to the table, solidifying its role as an invaluable partner in the ever-evolving world of PC gaming.
