State of GameSalad on 12-1-2014
Hello again all you GameSalad fans and I hope everyone had wonderful Thanksgivings! I’ve gathered up some info to share with you guys, enjoy!
First I’d like to give some updates on a couple of the larger issues that have arose recently:
A. Memory issues with Yosemite. Updating your Mac to Version 10.10.1 should fix the memory issues that were happening with users who are using Yosemite. If you’re still experiencing issues after updating your Mac to version 10.10.1, please open a support ticket with us, and include steps to follow to make the memory grow.
B. Issues with RevMob and Google Play concerning Policy ID Violation. We have submitted a fix to our QA team and it should be available to you guys later on today or tomorrow.
Now on to the normal updates:
Release 12 for the Windows version of GameSalad Creator. We’re still working hard on getting the Windows version of Creator up to date with the Mac version. One such thing that was recently added is the loop behaviors.
Release 0.13.0. for the Mac version of Creator. Work is coming along on this and there is currently a nightly build out for you guys to check out the new features! For those who don’t know, a couple of the major additions that will come with release 13 are Facebook integration and the new rendering system.
New nightly build for the Mac version of Creator! As a lot of you have likely noticed, the new nightly build is out and ready for you guys to mess around with it! Feel free to grab a version of it here http://gamesalad.com/download/releases and check out this thread for more info and to report issues you may have http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/74406/nightly-build-0-13-1.
New nightly build for the Windows version of Creator. We’re hoping to have a new nightly build out for the Windows version of Creator within the next two weeks! A couple things that will be available in this build are some added behaviors and native preview!
New marketplace / website updates! Work on the marketplace is still being done, but I’ve heard our web guys are also working on updating other pages of the website as well. There will be new PRO and download pages in the near future! The support page was recently redone, check it out here: http://support.gamesalad.com/

Cross platform creator. Great progress as always, and I do remember a little birdy stating that you guys would get screenshots before the end of the year, which is rapidly approaching!
Playstogether. You guys should be able to mess around with Playstogether in the new nightly build that’s out for the Mac version of Creator! I’ve also heard that Steve J will be presenting a talk about how to use Playstogether with Creator at the January GameSalad monthly meetup.

Our December GameSalad meetup (being held tomorrow) will have a panel of Stephen Nichols (CodeWizard) and Alan Uthoff (BlackCloakGS) so try to attend online or in person if you have questions you’d like to ask them For more info check out this thread: http://forums.gamesalad.com/discussion/73983/monthly-in-person-and-online-gamesalad-meetup-tuesday-december-2-at-7pm-cst-12-00am-gmt#latest
