let's get excited about Gamesalad again!

Hello all,

@adent42 I would like to ask for embedded web view.

It has been discussed before and combined with the network behavior it has tons of potential.


Among the things that come in mind are:

Input fields which hopefully will trigger native keyboard.

Social login.

Camera picture to server.

Showing a picture from the server.

Showing videos.

And I'm sure others can come up with more ways to use it.

@adent42 I'll be happy to hear your thoughts on this one.

    nice suggestion..

    GameSalad Templates and Custom Development at the Official Marketplace: http://gshelper.com

    That will be great but I don't think it will happened.. like all other suggested features users ask for on the forum..

    a lot of features are missing from gamesalad and there is a lot of potential to make it the best program for making apps and games, maybe some we will have it all[=

    This one would be lower in the list, not because it's not useful, but because it's much harder than a lot of stuff in the queue. But it is in the queue.

    Another option would be to select a game/graphics pipeline focused HTML renderer. So it wouldn't be the full equivalent of a web view, but it would support a subset of html in a memory efficient way.

    Either way, it's on the list.

    @uptimistik I agree!

    @nir3112 well you have to keep trying, I do think this is the easiest engine out there, yes a lot of missing features for sure but it's quite powerful regardless.

    I guess if there was enough demand maybe @adent42 would have think on push this up the list, but you don't see this thread packed with comments or any other thread for that matter.

    It's such a shame to see how this community has vanish, It use to be one of the powerful sides of Gamesalad and still a great source of information.

    If I wouldn't have the language barrier I would try to be more active, but posting with google translate takes to much time.

    Thanks for the answer @adent42 , can you elaborate on the second option?

    Nevertheless hope this come sooner than later.

    Something like this rather than pulling in all of webkit: https://github.com/libRocket/libRocket

    It really depends on how easy it is to pull in the browser in a cross platform way.

    Thanks for the link, I don't really understand it but I'll be happy to have it (:

    Basically a full browser is very heavy to support and we'd have to write special code for each platform. LibRocket is a useful subset of HTML that can be less resource intensive and cross platform. The main thing you'd be missing is javascript.
