What are the "setbacks" of the free version vs pro? Back when I was pro, there was the game salad splashscreen after publishing. what is it now? Thanks

    You need pro to turn that off.

    Mandatory ads are advertisments that GS insets automatically, for which you don't get paid.

    The mandatory ads are advertisements that Gamesalad will place in your game. Gamesalad will earn all the revenue through these ads. This is a small price-to-pay for this awesome software.

    I'm very butthurt that there isn't a free version anymore. Game Salad gave us something really nice. Then in one fell update, took it all away for money. Why... Why does greed ruin everything...

    Unless you were never planning on making any money from your game that's a pretty weird argument.

    I'd rather pay and keep the software alive (and know the developers can put food on their table) than see it disappear.

    I hate to point out the obvious, but 'greed' is defined as a selfish desire for something . . . wanting people to work full-time, without pay, to meet your desire for free software, certainly fits the definition of 'greed' in that it's very selfish to want others to work for you for nothing.

    I would't say your greed ruins everything, I'd just say you've not given this a lot of thought.
