    Anything within this

    "Develop a Tizen application or game using TIZEN SDK & Tools (http://developer.tizen.org) The target devices should be Samsung Z1, Samsung Z2, Samsung Z3 and further smart phones launch in the 2017."

    Does game salad support those devices?

    hi! I did check my older mails from 2015
    And saw that my game was suspended back than. I think I added it early 2015 to their tine TIZEN store and NEVER updated it. I really did not care about it back then. Since there was NOT a single way to make money with it.

    The suspension reason was that the app would not fit the screen.

    _Dear seller, Thank you for your being with Tizen store. First of all, thank you for being with Tizen Store. We would like to inform that your application was suspended because of below critical defects. Quick revising will ensure that your application provides a fabulous experience that users appreciate. - Problem: Resolution error . Display size does not fit screen fully For technical support on application development, please visit Tizen Developers Forums. https://developer.tizen.org/forums Sincerely, Tizen store validation team _

    Now my question arises, did game salad continuously update the tizen SDK and device Dimensions? In which case it was my own fault since I never update the game.
    But if the problem is that game salad does not support/update to Tizen Standards the whole effort I plan to do is wasted.

    So better to check this first.
    The goal would be to get my on other platforms running and most popular game Orcs back to Tizen.

    I still have a active game on Tizen store (only 225 downloads) that I updated Jan 2015 and it says game is compatible with 5 devices 2 - z1's SM-Z130H (2.3.0 and 2.4.0) 2 - z2 SM-Z200F, and Y (2.4.0) plus z3 SM-2300H (2.4.0).

    I also build my game using my universal build using stretch but I know at that time it was not working correctly in emulator could not detect camera size.

    Does using GS count as using the Tizen SDK? That was my biggest concern.

    Any thoughts?

    You use the Tizen SDK to build game with Gamesalad build.

    I already asked Tizen that and they said that since we are using the Tizen SDK to build the final product that it does count. I also have tested the app using the remote test lab and my game appears on all the devices.

    Here is the link for the test lab. Some of the "phones" are a little messed up because people leave them in bad shape. It is free to join and you get free credits every day so unless you need the phones for extended period of times, it does not cost you anything.

    @adriangomez
    great

    is there also a way to make existing in-apps working on Tizen with your code magic?
    Else I will make a tine version without in-apps.

    Has anyone setup the advertising contract through Tizen yet?

    I'm in the process of doing so, but in the Terms and Conditions they have sent me they are requesting the App Names and App IDs.
    Does this mean we have to publish the apps first, then setup the ad network contract, and then republish once we have the network details??

  • BigDaveBigDave Posts: 2,239Member

    @DigiChain
    you should be able to have a fully ready app in your tizen account without it having to be live. So then you got the App Name and ID already visible.

    @BigDave - yes that would make sense, I didn't think it through properly! Thanks
