    Some parts of the article aren't true

    They said that you will not be able to update your games, or give away promo codes, but GS clearly told us that you will be able to do both of those things

    I'm really surprised TA made an article about it though

    This can only help make Gendai reconsider the terms.

    Let's hope anyways!

    You wont be able to update after your subscription ends, unless you switch over to GSD:(

    I posted this an hour ago in the already long thread because I didn't think we needed to add to the number of threads... Thought it would be cool to keep adding to the 45+ pages... lol.

    I'm hoping GameSalad will read this. The lack of communication is probably the most annoying thing about the new direction. It's not that I don't like the idea of GS Direct. In fact, I really like it. But I don't like not having the option to go independent if I like.

    Yeah you're right. I misread that one, I thought they said that you won't be able to update after giving it to gendai through GS direct

    Wow, this thing keeps snowballing. Although, some of the info does appear to be inaccurate, like artonskyblue pointed out. All I can say is lets hope GS shows us that this thing has been blow out of proportion.

    If it's on your account you can always update it....
    It's your apple account.

    Just not with a binary made by game salad

    Why did you pull it? I liked Max!

    My Apple Dev account ran out. I am going to release it under GS Direct with a few additions, like the much asked for D-Pad. I'll also throw in an extra level and tighten everything up... it will be more like Max Vector 1.5. LOL. And no, that's not what I'm going to call it ;-)

    Thanks QS! Now for the final touch... Max Vector GSD: Resistance is Futile.

    Well, now that the world knows, maybe GS will conciser a change? Maybe they've been bought by Apple for Wednesdays event? prolly not...

    Anyway this will stir up even MORE hate towards GS.

    That is the saddest part. It looks like not too may people have realize this but this now is everywhere. If anybody was thinking about joining, like some say in the TA article, not any more.
    Poly, you are mad because they used the wrong clip, you should be mad they use your clip at all...

    Why be mad? I've just had an email from someone asking how they can get the game... LOL. Guess any publicity IS good publicity. LOL.

    Yup, GS is sitting back right now enjoying the front page article on TA.

    And I could be enjoying downloads but I don't have the dough to renew my Apple Dev account :( GIMME DIRECT NOW! I NEED TO PUT MAX BACK ON! LOL

    period...

    Sometimes people buy things because they want them... But on a deeper level i think more buy out of curiosity.

    I guarantee that article helped game salad waaaay more than it hurt.

    I can put it on for you...
    Heck, I'd even consider maybe giving you a small cut since you did all the work :P

    some of the comments at TA:

    "...No offense but the majority of GameSalad apps suck..."

    "...Made with GameSalad" already made me cringe in the past..."

    "...Gamesalad already has bad reputation mainly to long loading times..."

    "...see that logo come up and automatically think -- oh crap not a game made with Game Salad..."

    "...the engine is that low end that even a Game Maker 8 version for iPhone would crush it with closed eyes in less than 3 minutes cause the features suck, the lack of expandability is laughable and the performance can only compete with Flash which runs like trash as well..."

    "...we can now filter out all the crap apps by just ignoring one company..."

    ouch!

    i don't think that this is helpful...

    Most of that stuff is true, but wow.. People shouldn't be so closed minded to think that because something is easy it isn't powerful.. I've seen the same comments aimed at REALBasic and even AMOS and STOS back in the days of the Amiga. There will always be some amazing stuff. But yeah.. It does seriously make me wonder how GS hope to run things under a single account.
