    does android IAP support means for amazon/nook as well? if it's the google play store you might want to reconsider or ask the customers what they really want. i don't think much of what anyone published has any success on android except a few.

    @ultima - I would assume the IAP would be inclusive of those platforms, but I do not have solid confirmation. However, we have several high play, high volume users who publish almost exclusively to Android - it's a much larger market than you might think. :)

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

    I agree with SaladStraightShooter. We always treat the Android market as a complete whole, not segmented into each market (i.e. - Google Play, Amazon, Nook, Nabi, etc.). Our android apps easily make up for 1/2 of our income base, with ios taking up the other 50%.

    ipad mini support checked.. woohoo 1 less item on the roadmap. haha. i suppose no additional work is needed for developers since everything is the same resolution, go apple & GS!
  • ultimaultima Posts: 1,207Member, PRO
    @wpaten you mentioned nabi, is there a specific store for that?

    edit: by the time I posted this the thread went ahead one page lol :)

    My 2 cents

    I came to GS because of the free model, I have a gamemaker studio license for windows and html5 but I do not like, that for every new platform I have to pay extra dollar. If I need to publish on ios, I have to shell out on Mac cloud services, apple license and then another 200$ on game maker ios license.

    I am in India and $200 for me is 10000 INR.

    GS 250$ maybe is a lot but is still acceptable if it allows all the other platform publishing and the playheaven and iads etc

    For the new version, maybe without Lua it loads faster but if we can optimize and use tables, loading is not a major problem even now. I am testing on Ipad 2 and its working great and my graphics are HD and very heavy.

    I am currently playing games on ipad which takes similar time to load just as in current GS.

    Moreover why are you working on a game for over a year only waiting GS to launch a new version?

    Complete now, launch now, make some money and then maybe upgrade to PRO.
    If your game clicks and have the money, you can always get help and shift to the Lua free later.

    According to me GS free and pro schemes are great. If I compare the support between Gamemaker and GS communities, its even when it comes to help from forums.

    GS has better video tutorials than game maker.

    and the free part is very encouraging especially for someone who is trying to make his first ios game and have struggled for a decade with game designing as I am not a coder.

    As of now I can test my game within a month after starting work with GS on Ipad and it feels great.

    I am completely against the 99$ for each platform model.

    If the new engine is not for free, no problem, I am still happy with what I have now the free version, RATHER than what I want GS to be in the future.

    Gamesalad will sink as all the other companies when they get to BIG. If lua will be only-pro i will leave gamesalad forever.

    Hi, just to clarify, and forgive me if I missed it, but is there going to be facebook integration?

    Thanks

    All these new features sound really cool. Very curious to know what these other unknown features are, like project mint ect.

    Really glad GameSalad updated their roadmap it's easier to plan a head. :)

    @SaladStraightShooter Sorry if I missed this already, but is there any date for the next update. Also, will this update allow our customers to play our apps on both iPhone 5 and 4s/4/etc?

    @SaladStraightShooter, will the new engine allow support of larger numbers, like without converting and displaying scientific notation? Sorry if this has ever been mentioned elsewhere.

    I can't wait for all those changes to take effect! I wish it was all coming out tomorrow!

    Wouldn't multiplayer require some kind of server? :-B .....like the developer would own and operate there own server? ...just thinking out loud
  • JDuaneJJDuaneJ San Francisco Posts: 300Member
    Really looking forward to AUTO SAVE! Just had a Creator Crash and lost about 30min of work. I know, I know, save early and save often...blah blah blah. ;) Sometimes you just work so fast and get into a groove you don't think to save. lol

    Road map looks good, hope the New UI for Mac looks nothing like the Windows UI. I bought a Macbook just so I didn't have to look at it. lol

    That is one way it could be done. It could also be done through GameSalad, over bluetooth, or more likely through GameCenter multiplayer.

    Hi. I have been waiting for Android In-App-Purchase. I really like to know where it will be available. Since the announcement, already 5 weeks have passed.

    can you please update us on iPhone 5 support? It has been almost 2 months since the release of the iPhone 5.

    I think this week
  • SaladStraightShooterSaladStraightShooter Austin, TxPosts: 3,081Member, Chef Emeritus
    As RUPAS said, likely this week if it's approved by QA and the cooks.

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