Motivation / Problem

Why do things by hand if you can automate it?


The nightlies and all tags will now automatically be uploaded to Steam.

Nightlies will be pushed automatically to the "nightly" beta branch on Steam.
Tags will be pushed automatically to the "testing" beta branch on Steam.

This means that if someone selects the "nightly" beta branch, he will receive a new version of OpenTTD every night (given there was a chance that day).


  • it is not possible to automatically push to the "default" branch on Steam; this means that non-beta / non-RC releases have to be pushed manually to "default" branch by logging in to Steam Partner and promoting the BuildID from "testing" to "default" branch. Given this happens, what, 4 times a year, I am sure we survive :) Just .. don't forget ;)
