    @Mr.Rinoy - No, I think I understood you quite clearly. I also stress to point out your perspective changed somewhat based on Photic's input.

    I think we'll have to agree to disagree. The price, as it is, is quite fair and market competitive. It is extremely unlikely we will ever, ever, ever adopt a "Salad bar" pricing structure. I'm guessing if we did people would want it even further stratified. "Well I only want to publish to Android once - so I think I should only pay $1 per publishing!"

    Or, perhaps a cooking metaphor: A baker makes a beautiful, massive cake. They've put an incredible amount of time and effort into baking the cake. Most of the resources of the bakery went into making the batter, the frosting... even the candy sculptures on top. (It's an elaborate cake). When they finally present it at their bakery, there are several customers very interested in buying the cake. They see the value the cake represents as a whole - the time and effort the bakers put in it, and the promise of selling slices of the cake for themselves.

    But a few customers only want to buy the candy on top. Or the frosting. Or the plate it's presented on...and insist the baker is doing bad business because they won't give them only the pieces they want.

    Ok, that was a bit silly. But I liked the image.

    In regards to the engine - it's likely that changes will be made to account for new operating systems... as I said, sustaining. Not left to rot. Will you be limited on newer devices? Perhaps... but this is speculative at this point as none of this has happened yet.



    Why do you keep using that word? I do not think it means what you think it means.

    @SaladStraightShooter
    That's good to hear about the old engine being sustained. I don't like it, but I guest I will have to accept it. Also, nice metaphor. I can see your old English teachers smiling.

    Also, this is a little off topic, but while you are reading this post anyways, the @something doesn't seem to work for my username because of the period? Is there any way that it could be fixed? And if not, could you remove the period?

    I'll put an underscore - it'll allow your name to be recognized by the mention system. :)

    Thank you, but I didn't receive an email when you mentioned me. Am I supposed to and is it being caused by login issues?

    and i'm invisible to SSS as usual, again, pls include me in the beta test. make a friend, =)
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    @ultima I'm sure he saw your request though I don't believe he gets to set the list of testers himself. QA ussually picks who gets those builds if have understood past history of Pre-release testing. If they do decide to take applications for the Pre-release I would expect they will post a thread about it. Kinda like when they took applications and suggestions for line cooks and sous chefs.

    Can someone tell me what is New Mac UI? Its related to gamesalad mac creator improvement or something else?
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    @creativeapps the new Mac UI is the creator. They are changing it to match closer to the Windows UI in the Windows Creator.

    Very exciting stuff, Steve! Glad to see you guys are taking community feedback seriously and adjusting the roadmap accordingly. Although, I have to say I was very disappointed that PlayHaven Reporting wasn't near the top of the list.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. You can't expect a large amount of paying (or potential paying) customers to use an ad partner like PlayHaven without a good daily reporting system. As others have pointed out in the past, why not take advantage of PlayHaven's own reporting system - that way no one has to re-invent the wheel. We've all seen what happens when not enough people use an ad partner...

    That is not to say that hardly anyone is using PlayHaven, this is not true either. I myself have implemented it into one of our apps. The problem I have with that is I released the app in late September (shameless plug for iPuzzler and iPuzzler HD), but won't know how it has preformed with PlayHaven ads enabled until December! At what point in time when adding support for the PlayHaven network was discussed did someone say "Hey, this reporting system (or the lack thereof) sounds good"?

    Anyway, I guess all I can do is hope it's coming very soon. Otherwise, I'm very excited about the new engine, and would love to be signed up for the first release!

    The system playhaven is very unprofessional....

  • TesseractEngineTesseractEngine Posts: 180Member

    All sounds great and very exciting .... BUT seriously, SORT OUT THE LOGIN ISSUES ... It's beyond pathetic now and I simply do not come to the forums now through the frustration it causes and the want to hack away at myself with a rusty fork!

    This. I've had to log in four times just to reply to this.

    I knew that they were working on something like a dashboard to able us to see the PlayHaven reports every day, but I don't think any announcements here...uff
    PH is very important for us and it would be nice to have a system dashboard like iAd; but I've only read that we will can use PlayHaven for Android soon.

    @RUPAS - please stop duplicate posting the same feedback. There isn't much I can say to address your particular criticisms at this time.

    ...I've deleted your second duplicate post. It's the same as the first. Please don't do so again.

    @Beefy_Clyro, @TessaractEngine - We are working on it. It's on Vanilla's side at this point. We've been lobbing this back and forth for two weeks.

    My advice is: Clear your cookies out, log in and click "remember me." If you're logged out again, there should be a small button to the right of the login that shows your avatar and your username. Click that. It should then retain your credentials.

    If that doesn't work, try a different browser. Failing that, please be patient... it's frustrating to me, too, though my issues were largely eliminated by the above.

    @ultima - I'm not ignoring you and you aren't invisible! It'll probably be very close to what Tenrdrmer said.

    @saladstraightshooter
    On the contrary these log in issues seem to have final fixed the "Save my sign in" thing, Im running safari on my mac and like never before I've been logged in for 3 weeks now!
  • SaladStraightShooterSaladStraightShooter Austin, TxPosts: 3,081Member, Chef Emeritus
    @LeonardDeveloper - Safari seems to be the exception in this case. That's what I use and I've not been logged out in recent memory. However, as I understand it, Firefox and Chrome don't stay logged in very well.

    @saladstraightshooter
    Ah, Thanks for the info - I was confused as these issues affected me on safari just about 4 weeks ago, It used to be the opposite yes?, As a permanent "Logged in state" never worked for me before on safari,

    That is good to know. I used to use Firefox until I finally became so frustrated with it that I changed to Safari. I noticed the forums started working smoother after that. Also, I haven't experienced a single login problem. I have no idea what anyone is talking about. Maybe the GS website people could use my account as a point of comparison?

    Thanks @SaladStraightShooter! Didnt mean to digress from the roadmap which again, sounds very promising :)

    I really look forward to seeing the updates and we are working on our next couple of tittles, to be honest we have gotten GS addicted over the last 3 months!

    Nevertheless I think most of us share some concerns over the Playhaven situation regarding updating reporting and regarding android integration. I think what Rupas was trying to express is our concern regarding the urgency of having the monetising aspect of GS looked at before any other technical issues that are also important.

    Nevertheless, really look forward to the new updates and are very excited to keep working with GS for our next projects.

    Regarding some previous posts in this thread concerning the pricing structure and value for money I think GS still wins easily. If you check out the competition you will see that GS has more options regarding monetisaion (play haven, iAds, in app purchase), supports more platforms and has a much bigger community supporting the product with templates, artwork, tutorials, etc. etc.

    Just seen this! (I've been playing the new XCOM. Forgive me, for it is EPIC :D)

    Anyway, there's a new Air Supply game that wants a date with Native Engine Beta Testing.

    Let's make it happen ;)

    QS :D
