    Does anyone know when an update for this will be out?

    I'm still on Sierra, luckily. But do want to upgrade sooner rather than later.

    I jumped the gun and upgraded to highSierra, my brand new MBP has gone to ****. Corrupted files everywhere and I have to restart at least 2 times a day because it freezes.

    I don't believe it - came back to Mac this morning and it had already updated to High Sierra. Must have turned on the auto updates on Mac OS in the App Store or something. Ugh Apple. Now I'm back at square one again. When are we going to have a fix for a paying product? Or we might as well all cancel our subscriptions. I've kept mine going for 7 years :sweat_smile:

    An ETA please...

  • adent42adent42 Posts: 798Key Master, Head Chef, Executive Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee

    No ETA yet, I'm still figuring stuff out.

    I have a build that is still a bit broken, but seems usable with one work-a-round.

    Basically something is preventing the actor attributes from showing up when the game is loaded. BUT if you add an attribute and remove it, the attribute browser will show up again. Because this is mostly working inside Apple's GUI code, it's hard to track down what combination of magic sigils are required to get things working correctly again.

    The point being, if you're stuck and can deal with that work-a-round, PM me and I can get you a beta build. Though we still will say that the best bet is to either downgrade or install a VM. That, or start trying out the HTML5 tool.

  • squirrel42squirrel42 Posts: 151Member, PRO

    @adent42 Thanks for the response. I am ok at the moment as I have heeded your advice and not upgraded yet, but I am keen to do so. I will wait, I just wanted to get some idea how long this would be.
    I have tried the html5 tool but have not had much luck with it, I can’t get any of my existing games to load (too large?), I assumed it was because it was still in beta?..

  • What I do now ?

  • HypnorabbitHypnorabbit SingaporePosts: 113Member, PRO

    Wait @kessyrochacv@icloud.com . We're stuck in neutral until a fix is found.

    @kessyrochacv@icloud.com @Hypnorabbit

    Or try out Creator 2.0 (HTML5 online tool). :D

    Wish the online tool had in app purchases etc. enabled @Braydon_SFX ! Otherwise it's a no-go :persevere:

    It's something that's coming. As @adent42 mentioned in the other threads, the next phase is getting the online tool up to par with the native tools.

    I don't like the complain much, but the holidays are a big time for my app and I really need to update them soon. Any new info on an ETA?

    I also need an ETA on this and am not very happy with this situation. I have been waiting patiently for a fix but I have not been able to do any works since my Mac upgraded. I started using Gamesalad as it was free. Now I am playing a premium for this software that I am not able to use. (Being in Australia and the conversion rate it cost us a lot more) Hoping we will be compensated with a few free months for all the hassle and we will be able to use this software again asap.

    Tend to agree with some of the comments by @Hypnorabbit disappointed with progress and development at GS over the past 2 years. Still love the tool and would love to see a scripting element introduced, but doubtful if it migrates to serve lower tier education.

    @adent42 Have the download areas been disabled, I need to download the iOS viewer and I cannot?..

  • squirrel42squirrel42 Posts: 151Member, PRO

    @adent42 I have just submitted an app I have updated to take advantage of the release of iPhone X and I got this message from Apple "The app previews and screenshots for the iPhone 5.8-Inch display won’t appear on the App Store because your binary wasn’t built with the iOS 11 SDK." Is there anything I can do?

    I am very worried about the health of gamesalad because I love this software. And so I went to see if GS team is healthy... but going in About us on website is loading this page: " This website is under heavy load (queue full)
    We're sorry, too many people are accessing this website at the same time. We're working on this problem. Please try again later"
    Are you all right? Not make me worry about you

    Does signing apps work from Mac on High Sierra? I do the making of the game in GameSalad on my Windows computer, but after I've published it to my portfolio I have to finish the signing/upload process/iTunes connect process on a Mac (since I publish my games to the iOS App Store).

  • pHghostpHghost London, UKPosts: 2,059Member

    That part should work. GameSalad launches, but some UI elements aren't visible.

  • squirrel42squirrel42 Posts: 151Member, PRO

    If you wish to see what has happened to Gamesalad as a game development platform since May 2016 then read his Linkedin post about GS..

    Can I call him Brent “Fire and Fury” Dusing?

  • GladoniaGladonia Posts: 5Member, PRO

    Your remark made me check the GS About page. It works fine

    it is true, now it works fine but I can guarantee that for more than a day it did not work and I do not think there were so many users on the site

    ...or should be Cellfire & Brimstone?

    I'm not knocking it, but isn't that Bio more about faith and religion / those type of causes, than running a commercial company? - Personally, I'd have expected a company taken over by someone who is championing religious causes, helping on projects, homeless, unfortunate etc, to be VERY ethical / morally correct if it isn't just about their public image (in an ideal world, at least). Hint... That involves looking after people who pay money for a product (yes, a PRODUCT) that they can ideally build a business around using. Can't use it if it's broken, can't use it if it's not supported...

    A little quid pro pro is in order, as currently it seems the balance is WAY out of whack...

    Personally, I also came to the same conclusions about the new head honcho a long time ago, that @Hypnorabbit seems to have nailed...
