how are these badges working and how do I get these? In particular the beta participant badge. At YAGER I am working on UE4 for multiple years now. I think we even had voxel lighting back in the days when I first started that engine. Is that beta enough?
-beta → just for beta testers - when you have access to the beta section in the UDK forum, then you are surely a beta tester (otherwise contact Chance )
-moderator → when you are a moderator
-epic partner → for partners of epic games (speedtree, ark devs, nvidia devs,…)
-spotlight member → when you were mentioned in the stream
-engine contributor → when you added C++ code to the engine
-epic staff → being epic
-GameJamFinalist → when you are on place 1-3 with your game jam game
Personally I feel like that is just rewarding those that could’ve afforded it at the time (I couldn’t). I do have a question for anyone that knows, for the engine contributor badge, what exactly needs to be contributed? Let’s say that just a small bit of functionality was missing from the engine, or maybe the devs forgot one small thing, if I were to add the code to fix it up, would that count as an engine contribution?
So, how can we get a star version of the marketplace badge nowadays? since that rather dumb voting for marketplace packs is gone nothing got replaced with it.
go back to how it was previously? sell 5 or so packs on the marketplace?
