Current Server Options - August 2019
Hello GameSalad World!
The reason for this post is because GameSalads Multiplayer function went a little south a few years back and looks like it will never be fully supported officially (certainly not in the short term anyhow). Im fully aware of @jonmulcahy post he created in 2014 but this was last commented on in 2017 and is most likely out of date (or maybe not @jonmulcahy ? I don't know, hence this post!).
So other than Jons attempt to help us all create our own server solutions, @Hopscotch created a great range of server options for GS users in the form of Leaderboards, Data sharing, analytics and so much more. However in the recent times, Appformitive has become less and less supportive of the GS features and has (at the time of writing) been down for the last 10 days. I don't want to turn this into a bashing session for Appformitive because that isn't what this is as I really like Roland and his services but I need to find a more stable solution long term for myself and my clients.
So the questions is, who out there is using any kind of server for anything to do with GS? It could be data collection, data sharing, leaderboards, multiplayer, anything at all. I would love to know what you are doing and with what company/server ect. So I can (and so can others) make a decision on what sort of other services are available and start make future plans using this amazing feature GameSalad has, but unfortunately not fully supported by GS.
Thank you all!
