You can even include screen shots, art from design documents, or art from storyboards
to provide a visual reference for the tester. This works well with the hyperlink and Web
publishing approach. The reference graphics can be updated to reflect changes and
maturing of the screen layout and art as the game gets closer to completion. For testing the
Bio-Rifle, the AmmoEffects definition could include the screen shot in Figure 11.14.
Likewise, Figure 11.15 would be useful for showing the Bio-Rifle GunEffects action.
