    I'm very interested in the Windows GS version, too. I use Windows 90% of the time and would appreciate GS in that environment, so much. I signed up on Saturday and I'm still waiting for an email, too. I hope to get one soon!

    @GLGames -
    @GLGames - As I said, they're sent in batches...patience. Sending again won't change anything - in fact, it might put your email at the back of the line. :P

    @themoonwalls @soldsnivy
    What the moonwalls stated is exactly what I meant, I was NOT being derragotory to PC users, As stated if you invest in a Mac just for game developing, Then it is for sure if your willing to spend that sort of money that you have ambitions straight however, with pc's because of the low price point it could mean that we're just gonna get game dev wanna be's and template publishers.....

    @themoonwalls
    Dziękuję za wyjaśnienia, co i wego :)

    Oh My god,
    I don't know what to think of this... This means more business for GS, But it also means some of the windows crowd...
    I don't know I half like and half dislike this :)
    I have no idea what to think of this.. I guess it means we get even MORE kids ;)
    ------
    But again thanks GS team for pushing the development race forward and accelerating with your product :)
    What's wrong with people who have a PC? We're not like pretentious jerks just because we have a black box that says Dell on it.
    Hi mate!
    I think that Leonard had something different on his mind: to use GameSalad you had to buy a Mac computer (it is a huge investment if you don't own a Mac). If you are ready to invest this kind of money, that means that you have ambitions, and you are mentally ready to join serious game developing business.
    Most of people owns a PC computer, and as GS is available for Windows, you don't have to make big investments to start making apps with GS (I'm not counting GS Pro membership, because it's very cheap), so there will be many "game maker-wannabes", kids who want to play in a game designer, and others.
    This doesn't mean that they won't be serious enough to develop games professionally (I'm sure that there will be many serious devs using a PC), but logically there will be higher percentage of "game maker-wannabes", and kids.

    How do you export a game from mac to windows?

    How do you export a game from mac to windows?
    You can't.
    Currently, game project files can only pass from Windows to Mac, not the other way around. We've already worked out a solution to this issue and it will be included with GameSalad 0.9.93 for Mac, expected to launch very soon.
  • JoVeJoVe Posts: 224Member
    But isn't a idea to publish windows games. That would be very nice for a larger audience.
  • ArmsArms Posts: 1Member
    I'm grateful to wait, thanks for the the GameSalad team effort, hoping to create games under Windows ~

    I'm a young lad still on .91 or something like that of gamesalad... pre gamesalad taking out the GameSalad logo and adding the PlayHaven or whatever... anyways... can I work on projects in the Windows Creator and open them in the pre PlayHaven version of GameSalad I have on my mac side?

    As far as I know, you still can publish projects with old GS version.
    And so far, you can't open Mac projects in Windows Creator.

    Spanish translation of this news for unofficial spanish forum http://gamesalad.es/index.php/topic,182.0.html ;)
  • FjantIncFjantInc Posts: 115Member
    Got the beta today. Can't find anything in the email where we can give feedback on this. Or will there be a dedicated thread for it? Love the new interface, but there are some workflow things I would like to address.

    Wow haven't been here in ages :)

    Really glad this happened which means i can now delete my frustrating hackintosh software and gain my precious 60 or so GB's :)

    I really hope that flash game websites start HTML5 because I hate working with stencyl there community is half-rate compared to this community.

    But yea! Thanks Gamesalad

    i so wish this was for XP !!!
  • KnepherKnepher Posts: 4Member
    Yeah I'm trying to test Gamesalad on windowns, but it is very difficult since I can't reopen any of my projects. I already said that in a couple of topics, but I'm not sure if it is the easiest way to do a feedback...
  • Aleco101Aleco101 Posts: 3Member
    This is awesome! Now I can make games on my PC!
  • Cyclone90Cyclone90 Posts: 1Member
    I was so excited to use Creator for Windows because I have experience with drag and drop interfaces for PC (Scratch) and also because I don't own a Mac. But I didn't read the forum and accidently installed on XP instead of 7. So I tried to install on my 7 but my antivirus detected a "harmful file" and deleted Installer whereas I had the same antivirus on XP and that didn't show. HELP!
