PreloadService Blue: PreloadService Beta Program

Hello everybody,

PreloadService Blue was a program I discontinued back a while ago. But now, it’s back!

PreloadService Blue is my style of a beta program. You get early access to new features, and you test stuff out and report any issues!
I had discontinued it, but with the upcoming release of 3.0 I’m bringing it back.

Reminder: This is a beta program. I do not recommend usage in production games. Only use this in development locations.
If you’re looking for the original one, find it here

Well now that I know what it is, how do I get it?

Join this server:

Tell me you’re there for PS Blue and I’ll give you access to report bugs, suggest features, and announcements to make sure you update.

Why do I have to join a Discord server?

This is to make sure I can get people up-to-date and submit feedback easily.

Current beta features in testing:

Beta Feature Expected Release Testing Begun Date Released
Plugins v3 11/9/22 N/A
Plugins API Full release v3.1, partial v3 11/9/22 N/A

How to report issues or suggest things?

Please report them to my Discord server, which you will be invited to.

Plugins Guide

The following is an example plugin I wrote to show off the 1.0.1 API.

task.wait(1) -- Wait for PS to exist
local API = require(game.ReplicatedStorage.PreloadService.PluginsAPI)

-- Make a new folder for remotes
local Folder = API.PluginEventsFolder("ExamplePlugin" --[[Name]])

-- Make a new remote

local function OnServerEvent()
	print("Server event!")
	-- Actually, we want to remove the event now that it's run.
	local Result = API.RemoveRemote("ExampleRemEvent","ExamplePlugin",true--[[Force it. If false, it iwll not close the event if it has active connections.]])
	print(tostring(Result[1]) --[[ success (true/false) ]],Result[2]--[[ message ]])
API.NewRemoteEvent("ExampleRemEvent"--[[Event Name]],"ExamplePlugin"--[[Folder Name]],OnServerEvent--[[Function (can be a normal function, this is just my example)]])

-- Make a new remote function
local function OnInvoke()
	print("Hello World!")
API.NewRemoteFunction("ExampleRemFunction", "ExamplePlugin", OnInvoke) --Same description for above, but it's a remote function.

-- Construct a button

	"rbxassetid://10065089093", --Image
	"Computer", -- Name
	script.Computer, --Frame
	"G", -- Position in the menu
	"This is an example plugin." -- Short description

	--When the plugin is building, the configuration file will be available under the Config variable. 
	-- It'll be in a table by default, so you dont have to require() it
        warn("Plugin is now running!")
end, script.Config)

Making a frame for PreloadService Guide:

Make the size {1, 0},{1.086, 0}. Reminder that there is some deadspace at the top due to the dock and titlebar.

Style Guide

Use the Gotham or Noto Sans font, and make everything transparent.

:no_entry_sign: No’s when designing for PreloadService

  • Flat borders. Use 8px for buttons, TextBoxes, other inputs/text interfaces, and 18px for frames.
  • Heavy colors
  • Fonts other than Gotham, Ubuntu, Noto Sans, Raleway, and possibly more later.
  • TextScaled without a UITextSizeConstraint
  • Large text
  • Things that interfere with other pages

:question: Info

  • To make a frame’s background transparent, give it the attribute “ExcludeTransparent” and set it to true [Subject to renaming in 3.0 or 3.1]
  • For consistency, use FlatIcon’s UICons Icon Pack for your icons.

Making new pages

  • Make a new, transparent frame.
  • Make it’s size {1, 0},{1.086, 0} and position {0, 0},{-0.086, 0}
  • Accounting for the topbar and the dock, the usable size is {1, 0},{0.78, 0}

That’s it for now. Thank you!

I’m a bit lost as to what this actually is. Do you think you could clarify this in the post? Is it a plugin? A service? A library? I have no clue whatsoever.

Sorry, I was kinda in a rush to write this.

It’s a beta program for my existing module PreloadService. I made this to help me gather feedback for new updates before they reach general availability.

Then it’s not a community resource, moreso you making the community the resource; this category is for you to provide to the community, not the other way around. Try #help-and-feedback:creations-feedback

I am, many other things I have worked on in the past have been allowed to do this. I’m giving it to people for free, as long as they have a general reason to have the beta package instead of the normal one. The reason for the applications is because of what I just said, plus I want everybody to be in a Discord server so I can make sure the people in the program are updating so I dont get reports from people on old versions.

No — I’m saying that this is not really a resource (and it piggy backs upon your actual resource), and by your own description:

The form clearly isn’t working so I’ll just give the Discord.

Sorry everybody. I’ve been really busy with other projects which have a higher priority.

When I complete those, I’ll be back on a bi-weekly update schedule.

By the way, registration si free! All you have to do is join the server.
