Latest Updates at GDM - April 2024

← Back to News

It's been a quick turnaround after last month's post about the latest updates at GDM, but we're back with more info on another batch of changes that are now live!

Two-Factor Authentication

You now have the option to add an extra layer of security to your GameDev Market account by setting up 2FA for logging in.

Simply head to your member Dashboard page when you've logged in and you'll see the Account Details & 2FA option, which will take you through to the option to Enable 2FA...

From here you'll be able to scan the QR code to finalise set up with your authenticator app and make note of the recovery codes, though please note the QR code and recovery codes only show up once, so complete setup before navigating away.

Cleaner & Clearer Dashboard

While we're on the subject of the user Dashboard, we've made a few tweaks to that as well to make it more user friendly.

Firstly, we've amended it so that some tiles won't appear for some people until they are needed;

  • The Inventory tile will only show for people who have listed or started uploading at least one asset.
  • The Sales page will only appear for people who have got at least one live asset on the store.
  • The Orders tile only shows up once someone has completed at least one order.
  • The Edit and View Profile tiles have been merged into one.

The other change on the Dashboard is that we have added a flip effect to each tile, which shows a short description of what each section is to be used for.

Automated Product Tagging

We've now implemented automated product tagging on all asset pages.

This will make it simpler for people searching for assets to find other assets with the same file types, created in the same software or of a similar theme.

We'll be monitoring the tag system over the coming weeks/months and will look at making additions/improvements as and when needed to make it as useful as possible for people searching for assets.

As always, if you ever have any suggestions for improvements or additions to the site, feel free to send them over to [email protected]. We'll back to let you know once the next updates are live.
