pielagopielago Posts: 2Member
okay here is the problem
I am using windows and I want to make Ipads and droids games
to pushing with windows droid games I see tutorials for it ..
but if I want to publish for both types Ipad and droid
will I be able to do it with a windows PC and test them with there devices?
Or do I need mac and windows? and also be a PRO user?
to test them all?
IF I become PRO will I have the access to use the windows PC and transfer the data game to an ipad device to test it and also to droid device... or its not possible?

I only have windows PC at the moment....

    You will need a Mac to publish or test your game on any iDevice. Sorry.

    Like Braydon says above you'll need a Mac to publish to any iDevice and you'll also need an Apple Developer Account.

    It seems like nobody reads the Cookbook nowadays 8-| almost everything is there..

    @bent73 Read this portion of the Gamesalad Cookbook. The step you might be interested in the most would be Step 4, but I advise you to start from Step 1. After that, read through the entire Cookbook when you can.

    I need to make an App for our school class - so its extremely relevant if I can make Apps for all the platforms. I have a PC and because I am new to this with no coding experience, I will be reliant on templates. After a few hrs of searching (and a great overview from GeekyTeachers) I have concluded the following.

    1) It matters whether a template is for Mac or Windows.
    One must realise that there are way more templates for MAC, if they do not mention its, its probably MAC.

    2) To the question can you work with the templates across the platforms?
    Answer -> As long as you have ACCESS to someone who has a MAC version who can open and save the files again for you on the latest version of creator you will have no problem with any Mac templates.

    3) To the question can you make Apps for the different platforms?
    Answer -> For the output it matters a lot which platform you work on;
    Mac version can publish to:
    iPad and iPhone
    Android
    Nook
    Kindle
    Mac OS X
    Windows 8
    HTML5

    Windows version can publish to:
    Android
    Nook
    Kindle
    Windows 8
    HTML5

    If anyone has anything to edit or add that would be great. Hope this saves someone else a few hrs.

    sigh: important update - only the Pro version lets you publish to Android.

    Yeah.. I mean, it's the first PRO feature they list when you look at the "Go PRO" page?
