Saladgamers.com Update

edited November -1 in Introductions
It's all about updates today. Not nearly as important as 0.8.7 or iPhone 4, but coming in a close third...

Do your bit
Support the GS community, add SaladGamers to your games. DebugDesign recently posted a great idea, which inspired us to create cool graphics for your games. The idea is to use your game to promote all GS games. Go to http://www.saladgamers.com/DevLogIn.asp for more information.

Latest Releases
We've added more games to 'Latest Releases' on the home page. It now lists the latest iPhone and iPad games. Thanks to QuantumSheep for the idea.

Game Of the Month
If you haven't checked out the game of the month or read the interview with tshirtbooth, where have you been?

Video Reviews
If you love a GS game you should thank the developer by submitting a review.

You bunch of lazy toads
If you haven't 'added vote for me' graphics to your site, or twittered, or facebooked about SaladGamers.com, then you should be ashamed. Don't leave it to the dedicated and honourable few. Get off your lazy butt and do something good today. More info on promoting your games can be found in the developers section.

Suggestions
Keep them coming. It's your site, i'm doing all i can, but if you have ideas/concerns please don't be shy.

Thanks everyone!

    "Video Reviews

    Thats not a good idea, I don't want my games all over the web... Nah i'm joking :P (clearly)

    Sounds great I still haven't signed up. Will do when I have some time.

    For a suggestion can I say that you embed some of the top games on the site. (With the developers permission) I don't mind you uploading any of my games. (Also Im not saying my games are "top" they are no-where near but I know some people might not like to upload there games to the web because of a downloading issue, am I correct?)

    But anyway, good luck with the site!!! :D

    Is the Win A Tong part working? I cant seem to see the code :(
  • mrfunkleberrymrfunkleberry Posts: 424Member
    Thanks iDeveloperz and 2D-Sprite-Box.

    @SurgeApps it should be working. Have you submitted any games? That's the only reason i can think of why code won't appear.

    Funk... I must say. Excellent work. I've been out of the GS loop for a couple weeks now. (Had a huge 70pg sports program to put together that consumed all of my free time) But I'll be back at app-work until my first kids game is launched here in a week or two. I'm excited to see what will come about on the saladgamers site. Great job! I love the artwork.

    @mrfunkleberry, Awesome job!! Your contributing so much to this community and thanks a ton for that. This is a bit random lol, but could you update my app icon on your site because I changed my icon in my new update.
  • mrfunkleberrymrfunkleberry Posts: 424Member
    @Rattlehead thanks! will do.
    @jweaver911 thanks man, looking forward to seeing your new game.
    @artonskyblue You can update your games in the developers section, select 'update my games', select your game, hit 'update'. cheers

    Funkster, checked out the graphics, looking cool. I have just made a video for my new game, i'll try and add the saladgamers image in. Any chance you can do a portrait graphic?
  • mrfunkleberrymrfunkleberry Posts: 424Member
    Here you go...

    image

    Sorry, you said portrait. hang on... Okay if you hold your hands out, so each hand is covering the left and right sides of the image,you'll have your portrait :)

    Edit : now includes website address. doh!
  • beefy_clyrobeefy_clyro Posts: 5,390Member
    haha got me hands covering the sides and its looking good. You may wanna put the website address on there too, if people dont have the pro version it'll just be a picture so should have the url on. Im currently remaking the video with the saladgamers image at the end and as the game hasnt been submitted yet and i still aint got my website done i have included a button at the end saying 'Still hungry?', this will link to the saladgamers site.
  • mrfunkleberrymrfunkleberry Posts: 424Member
    I'm a little confused, so just to check. The image above is intended for videos only. The "Hungry for more?" graphics in the developers section is for your games, but i guess could be used in videos if you like.
  • beefy_clyrobeefy_clyro Posts: 5,390Member
    Put down the crack pipe and you'll find it a little easier. ha. i have just done a vid and i have used the advert that was 'intended' for games, im sure it doesnt really matter what graphic goes where right? As long as its advertising SaladGamers? I have used the 'intended' game graphic at the end of my video, i have also created a button saying 'still hungry?', if tehy click on this it goes to your site. However, i dont think the game graphic looks that good in the video so i will redo it with the above graphic but keep the 'still hungry?' button.
  • beefy_clyrobeefy_clyro Posts: 5,390Member
    Ok i am re-doing it with the new graphic and have the button saying 'SaladGamers - Free game a Day', when pushed goes to your site. I'll put the video up once its done

    This looks like a neat idea, but could you please come up with a better way than requiring my gamesalad login and password on a third party site?
  • iDeveloperziDeveloperz Posts: 1,169Member
    I was worried about that but don't worry. It's to check if your a developer. When you actually sign up you are advised to make a different password.
  • mrfunkleberrymrfunkleberry Posts: 424Member
    We only use your gs login to verify you are a gs developer. We do not store it, you register with different details. Nothing dodgy here. This should be explained on the site. I'll look into it. Cheers spaceneedle

    Edit. Oops beaten to it. Cheers ideveloperz

    I have now created the video using the SaladGamers graphic, you can view it here;
