A team of 10 professionals from Pingle Studio helped Hi-Rez studios to implement UI and provided some more development assistance. Here are some challenges we solved while working on DKO:

challenge

Implementing the flexible, effective, and change-friendly UI system, which is strongly connected with the gameplay

solution

1. Planning the architecture system

2.  Creating a manager class that uploads the necessary assets to the memory and dynamically creates instances for widgets, based on the data from the assets

3. Implementing the assistance subsystems

4. Implementing the gameplay-connected code

5. Connecting the UI and gameplay

6. Testing and releasing

challenge

Fixing the critical freezes on a Startup video, which are being played during the engine initialization

solution

1. Performing profiling

2. Postpone the system benchmark call

3. Add async asset uploading

4. Detect that async upload breaks the logic for some widgets

5. Fix the issue

6. Detect that the previous fix fixes the initial Startup video issue

7. Return the async assets uploading, using that fix, setting it only to work while this video is playing
