Yesterday troyle tell today fixing problem at boss but in changelog no write fix :S
You might compare it with fixing a bicycle tube... to glue the patch on the hole is only a small part of the whole process.
Really bad example, though I suppose that's the best way to get to the people who have no understanding of how programming works.
Hell, I've had 1 course in it, totalling about 50 hours. And I know bugger all about programming. All I know is, in a game like Wakfu, you likely have thousands of coding, and finding the exact code that is causing issues can be ridiculously hard.
A Bicycle tube requires you submerge it in water, bam, there's the whole. You cannot just search for the problem, because the program have no way of knowing where the coding issue is. You might know which section you are working with, but that can still be hundreds of lines of coding, that you have to read through in order to figure out where things went wrong.
And sometimes, that's not even the issue - Sometimes, it's not the coding itself - It could be a completely different code, in an entirely different section of the entire program, that is causing conflicts to arise.
I don't know what I'm talking about, no: I've only fiddled with very basic programming, but even I know that this is a far more complicated thing than just patching up tire. Incomparable in everything but the name.
