    Hey guys, thanks for the update!

    However, just tried signing my app and it's failing with a server error. I've emailed with the server error status.

    Annoying timing! literally on my last testing

    added fix for loading times

  • mactds10mactds10 Member Posts: 63

    Outstanding! Been waiting for this. The IAP fix is crucial, and thanks for adding in that bit about improving load times. I think the RC may be ready to submit to Apple with.

    Wahoo! Definitely happy to see this RC. Thanks GS team.

    Edit: Would love to report that the loading times are amazing... but sadly I cannot tell. I did an adhoc build and in retesting on my iPad2 it seems about the same as it was before this RC... is that possible? ie. that fix isn't in there (please say that this is the case).

    Gotta say, first impressions are good.

    The Pause/Unpause bug is indeed fixed!

    Will test some more for sure, but thank you for getting this done!

    QS =D

    Soo uhh.. pause and unpasue is fixed. Load times are maybe 10-15% better. The interpolating alpha issue seems to be back however.

    Edit: Guess i should clarify, the interpolating alpha issue appears to be back in some capacity on the device. Resolved in the creator. I suppose this has to do with the gsimage format since it's a publishing side change right?

    Great news there's a lot on here that have been bugging us for a while, thanks so much @BlackCloakGS‌

    @BlackCloakGS‌

    What is the plan with the loading times for this stable release?

    Currently it's unusable.

    I'm currently using 10.4, and the load times are very good. The load times in 11.0.7 are very very bad in comparison...

    Here's the load times in 10.4 versus 11.0.7

    Load Mission 3 - 6 seconds (10.4) / 10 seconds (11.0.7)

    Load Results Screen - 1 second (10.4) / 12 seconds (11.0.7)

    Waiting for the mission results screen to appear is an excruciating 12 seconds in 11.0.7, versus the 1 second it takes to show the results in 10.4.

    Could we please see the LOADING TIMES issue added to the Known Issues list of things that will be addressed before this stable release goes final? Currently, that is just not good enough. I would need to stick with 10.4 if load times are not improved, meaning that I don't have access to any of the new Pro features I'm paying for in the new stable version.

    I'd like to see the loading times reduced to the level as seen in 10.4, or very near it. I don't really see why the load times should be getting significantly worse - no matter what changes and additions are being made in GS.

    ======

    On that note, could you please confirm that I will still be able to publish using 10.4 for the next 12 months? I think I have everything I need in 10.4, and I could potentially survive without upgrading to a newer version. I'd like to know that 10.4 will be supported for the duration of my project, which I hope to have released by September or November.

    Yea I'd like to know how long 0.10.4.1 will be supported as well. I plan on sticking with it for a while. This 0.11.0< version isn't for me with the PNG issues. PNG size optimization is a must for me and I also use a different program to make my most of my graphics, and it's not listed as one of the supported programs for images.

    Load times are still 3-4 seconds longer then 11.0.3

  • quantumsheepquantumsheep Member Posts: 8,188

    The load times are an issue for sure. I don't think anyone who cares about what they put out will be able to do anything with GS till this is fixed.

    You guys have made some serious progress here, but please, I implore you, don't release .11 till the load times are fixed.

    I just want to know that when .11 is done, it's done. I don't want to wait for a nebulous amount of time later till I can seriously publish with GS.

    Additionally, not all your customers are pro, and would have to put up with slow load times in .11 while pro customers would, at some point, get faster load times via the nightly builds.

    You are so very, very close! I'm happy to wait so that .11 is really solid and useable in 'real world' situations! :D

    Go team GS!

    Excellent ! Amazingly fast turn around ! Especially on issues only reported very recently ! Great stuff.

    Will check it out a little later.

    But I would agree with what everyone else is saying, the long load times are a step backwards, the whole point of progress, of better image formats and tighter code and all that stuff, even things like the, now redundant, LUA free engine, were all centred around faster loading times, I'd say that (and stability) is certainly what users measure progress by, so it would be a pity to see the GameSalad team's hard work over the past months result in slower load times. Hopefully you can get load times down to near previous versions, I'm pretty sure everyone would be happy to wait a little longer.

    But besides that I'm loving that bugs, even ancient long standing bugs, are being crushed so quickly ! :)

    I am good with 0.10.4.1 ...i don't want dead slow Advanced version of .11
    please fix before release,even it takes 1 more year..to fix...or don't release

    Thanks

    Good update! But the level's scenes in my game still do not load in the Android Viewer.
    @BlackCloakGS is there a way to fix this?

  • The_Gamesalad_GuruThe_Gamesalad_Guru Member Posts: 9,914

    Keep at it. I'd still wait to fix the load times and memory footprint before final release. This could end up being one of GS's best releases ever if you sort the rest out!

  • ApprowApprow Member Posts: 703

    @BlackCloakGS
    maybe this is a stupid question, but will the performance be much better when spawning or destroying in 0.11 compared to 0.10.4?

    Hi,

    I'm using 11.0.7, I have build my game with the Distribution profile (so it's ready to upload to app-store), however I tried to test the IAP, and when-ever I click on buy button the game will ask me to enter my password and everytime I got the following error:

    "The Apple ID you entered couldn't be found or your password was incorrect. Please try again."

    and no matter how much time I tried it always show the same problem????

    I'm sure that my username and password is correct as I use it to login to itune without any problems?

    So is there any problems with the IAP?

    I very much agree with Frying Bacon Guru's message. Could be a fantastic release if the load times and other outstanding issues are addressed.

    Woooohaaaa !!! Fixed, abso-needless tmesis-lutely fixed !!!

    Regardless of what I did I couldn't get the colour wheel to die, selecting white is instantly reflected in the actor's attributes preview and is picked up by the actor itself, it's been an annoyance for at least 3-4 years, always catching me out when I least expect it - but it's rock solid now !!

    Thanks !! :)
