    Great work as always, GS Team! Keep it up!

    Just looked at the new PRO page - so much better than the previous. Well done! It's also great to see a lot of community games featured there. Great job!

    I agree that the new Pro page looks great. It certainly convinced me... even though I already am a Pro Member. :D

    "Cross platform creator. Still lots of good progress being made here."

    Still trying to figure out how to gauge the term "good progress". I mean all the reports about Cross Platform Creator have used the phrase " good/great progress ". SO just how close are we to having the CPC?

    If everyone in the GS Development team had money in a pool. What month and year would you put your 100$ on? 1st Quarter, 2nd Quarter, 3rd Quarter, 4th Quarter 2015? 2016?

    Will the Cross Platform Creator replace the current ones we are using now? Mac/PC versions. If so. will that mean GS will finally be out of its BETA reign? IF not does that mean we will have a Mac/PC/CPC version all being beta?

    Ahhh you know me.... always curious. Try to wrap my head around things.

    Every time i see you comment on a post i get curious about what its going to be about this time. You are marked as a black sheep to the GS staff, so maybe next time just have someone else ask the question and maybe they will answer. Im sure many of us forum members want to know these answers as well.

    I am waiting for "Cross Platform Engine"

    GameSalad teams needs to move up quickly because the number of Apps in App Store is more than 1.5 Million.

    If we don't want to be out of this race, GameSalad needs to be faster in their progress. Every day without this basic features (Social media integrations, analytics, more monetization features like AdMob or Vungle, access to device camera or default device language etc.)

    I hope that GameSalad wants to become more than Hobby Game Creation tool. And I think Cross Platform Creator is an enter to the new world. I recommend GS Team that just focus the new engine and get it ready as soon as possible because current engine won't be enough for us in the next few months.

    Sure sounds like it. The natives are getting restless. They'll calm down after they eat and drink their fill in the next few days. :)

    BTW and as you know, BlackCloakGS‌ said at the last Meetup that both versions of the current Creator will be continued well after the CPC is introduced so that we can maintain and update our older apps.

    iTC shut down already and I missed the boat with two apps that didn't make it to the finish line. Anyway, I will console myself playing with a new maxed-out Retina iMac. :D

    Let's not forget that @CodeWizard‌ said screenshots would be given before the end of the year ;) I think this next State of GameSalad post may be a great one!

    Holy Cow! Will we get it on Wednesday, Christmas Eve, or will the team be off this week?

  • Gamelover456Gamelover456 Posts: 378Member

    I think the team is off this week until January 5, 2015, so the next State of GameSalad post won't be until that week in 2015.

    @Gamelover456‌ The team will be off this is true (starting this Wednesday) but I'll do my best to get you guys a State of GameSalad post today, or at the very least get all the info I need to make one before the end of the week :)
