GameSalad Creator 1.25.100 for macOS Release

Fixes:

  • Fixes for upside down icons in Preview
  • Updated to Freestick 0.3.2 which will allow for MFI controllers on Mac as well as the PS4 controller V2.
  • Updated freeimage to match same version in engine (removed TIFF, EXR, and RAW support).
  • Extra GC and memory leak fixes to reduce memory leaked between projects.
  • Fixed issue where rules clear out when behavior list is scrolled.
  • Fixed misc issues that broke 1.25.99 under MacOS 10.12
  • Updated APK signing flow to use apksigner instead of jarsigner.

For people who haven't been tracking the other release thread, Creator holds some memory between projects. Creator will release all memory when closed, so if you are working with big projects, it's probably best to close GameSalad completely and re-open it for your next project.

Next up: fixes around the custom resolution flow inside of preview. Looking further into sources of memory leaks.

    Thanks, we're still disappointed all the leaks aren't gone, but we'll be working to eliminate / reduce them more them for our next release. Right now our team is working on Windows creator and android updates.

    Annoyingly this version auto updated on my Mac running 10.14.6. No popup, no choice, just downloaded itself and over written 1.25.98. This happened a few versions back too. Can you look into this please @adent42 as when you release new versions, I have no control over the update. last time I had to upgrade my OS because of this and lost a days work. There must be something you have changed that forces the upgrade. It never used to auto update itself, I used to get a pop up and I could decline but this version just installed itself and the first I new about it was when I saw I buggy interface (light elements in dark mode) so I check the version and its .100

    Hopefully this version is good and doest cause any major issues.

    @gingagaming it might have been the newest version of Sparkle we added. My update prompted, so I didn't look into it more. I'll try a fresh install at some point to see what the defaults are.

    @gingagaming if you run into any problems, let me know and I'll post a link to the older version.

  • gingagaminggingagaming FREELANCE GS DEV Member, PRO Posts: 1,673

    But if I download the older version, it works ONCE but when closed and reopened, its the new version! and with the memory issue, we have to close and reopen creator multiple times a day so that means I have to reinstall the older version time and time again. Because what it must do is overwrite the current version whilst we are using creator but not use it until we close and relaunch.

    Hi. When you install old version you can rename like gamesalad xxxx. Then launch preferences and turn off check for updates option.

    @gingagaming my guess is that you can change settings on the newer one, download the older one and they'll stick. So try: GameSalad -> Preferences and uncheck "Automatically Check for GameSalad Updates". Then download the older version. Hopefully that will stick and not download the newer version.

    Hi currently i still using the .99 version because the .100 sometime crash... and i need to restart the Creator...

  • adent42adent42 Key Master, Head Chef, Executive Chef, Member, PRO Posts: 1,989

    Can you send me the output of the crash log popup if you see it @pinkio75 ?

    Simply the Creator rest in stuck... and i need to press cmd+alt+esc to force quit.

  • Chris FitsimonsChris Fitsimons Member, PRO Posts: 99

    Please can you fix the new app signing screen so it remembers the paths we set. Its a pain to have to keep setting these things when GS app-signs from the portfolio screen, does the download and presents us with the last part to sign. It must be possible to write these settings to the project file or local storage.

    Im getting the same @pinkio75 @adent42 Sometime it just hangs and looks like this. It doesn't crash, just hangs so there is no crash report! This particular time, I pressed preview followed by home. Only way out id force quit and lose all your work.


  • Chris FitsimonsChris Fitsimons Member, PRO Posts: 99

    I found it hangs randomly and alot quicker when opening 2 projects. :-(

    @adent42 any idea when you will have a fix for this crash? I had to go back to .98.

    Not yet, we're still working on the android release and the windows build. Unfortunately due to the nature of this particular crash, even when we get to it I won't have a solid timeframe, but we are aware of the issue.

    Based on what I know I would suggest the following:

    1.25.98 if you have a bigger project and keep 1.25.100 around for android signing, if you can't sign via command line.

    1.25.100 if you're working on smaller projects (I think the freeze and related issues are memory sensitive).

    Just to confirm what @adent42 said my projects are small and so far no problems with .100.

  • Chris FitsimonsChris Fitsimons Member, PRO Posts: 99

    I found it hanging with projects of less than 5 scenes. I can work around it so no probs for me.
