So the values that are being changed over a patch are not in some kind of internal database? They are in code? Ouch!

For skills, ascendancies, skill tree and maps at least, should be easy to put the data in separate text files and compare just these files with the "live versions". This would save you from checking thousands of commits on same files. After this point, maybe you can automate some of the process.

Nice read though, thanks!

If they're really using svn as repo, no wonder they're always having hard time with their releases.

It's 2021 and still they're using svn.

They are surely using SVN, the screenshot is TortoiseSVN GUI. Their revision number is quite small given the the age of this game, IMO they probably truncated some history of the repo.

Actually SVN is quite good, used to be the go to VCS before GIT. A major drawback of SVN is the lacking of local branches, also not as performant as GIT.

It might be TortoiseGit, so you know, they might not be using SVN after all. Not that I'm saying that SVN is good or bad. Just saying that it might be either TortoiseSvn or TortoiseGit.

TortoiseGit should have the git graph available (had to check) which isn't the case.

Git has many advantages over svn, hard to believe that the team didn't had the time to migrate to a git repo after all this time, there are even tools to make the transition easy, preserving all history.
