GameSalad

Can GS download a graphic from the web and use it?

It's in reference to this thread that was closed:
http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/51568/is-gs-able-to-use-content-downloaded-from-my-server-to-keep-app-small-in-size

It would help a lot in maintaining and refreshing game assets. That way my game won't get bloated. I'm in my 4th day working with the GameSalad trial and stuff I took for granted with Corona is either not there or requires a magical Unicorn to conjure what I need.

Beyond that, I remember what a fun program GS was and still is and I'm looking into reviving an old game I made years back.

*FYI - I don't have a Unicorn.

    Just go to your folder and drag the graphic you downloaded onto your images and make it an actor.

    "This may become available when the LUA free creator is released. Gamesalad is working on a new creator with a different engine that is able to incorporate such things. Just have to be patient."

    He has the patience of a saint... actually, I think he is a saint.

    @DeadpoolBro13 thanks for the reply, however I am referring to networking functions post binary compile. What you describe is done in creator and is exactly what I don't want to do. The link reference provided at the outset of my post may help to clarify this a bit more.

    No, you can't currently load images dynamically from a remote server. Would be a nice feature to have though!

    I'm no saint but I am a realist..lol I understand the difficulties of running a business. One can only do what they can with the money and resources they have. I know the team works very hard to do the best they can but they are human.
