edited April 2015 in Conferences and Events

Come learn about GameSalad and meet other GameSalad creators. Chat with some of the developers behind GameSalad, including GameSalad's own Jonathan Samn (better known to some of you as CodeMonkey), Alan Uthoff (a.k.a. BlackCloakGS), Tan Tran (a.k.a. adent42)

Topic: Alan Uthoff (a.k.a. BlackCloakGS) will be giving a talk:
Game engines not another browser.

Many graphic designers want to get into or are in game development and GameSalad is a great tool for doing this. However, game engines don’t render the same as web browser. This presentation will go into how they differ and the approach you need to take and how to get the best performance out of your game. We will use GameSalad as the example engine and talk about how to get the best loading and frame rate out of your graphics.

    Can you do a preview of .14 and guide on how to use features like admob and facebook stuff?

    Edit: might be popular meetup if admobs involved.

    There's actually not much to admob. Sign up with admob to get your id. Set up your game with banner ads or interstial ads as normal. Enter your admob id during publishing.

    Looking forward to it as usual. Being a graphic artist and Web developer, amongst other hats that I wear, I'm keen on your choice of topic. :)

    I still appear to be a panelist for all events :D While I'm honoured, it also means I can't do things like vote in polls, so would love to just be a regular old joe again :D

    I forgot this was today, i guess i can stay up for a third day straight. But in case I'm not there, someone please give the GS Staff a hard time for me please, thanks.

    Sorry guys. I can't make the online Meetup. :'( Partner is off to USA to Texas and Kansas. I have to drive her to the airport. I was so looking forward to this topic. Hopefully it will be recorded.

    @scottharrrules43 It may be worth mentioning to anyone about to watch that the video does not show an image until 9 minutes in and the Meetup does not commence until about 11 minutes in.

    I thought my iPad was broken, then I tried my old iMac, then I had to upgrade Flash... :s Then I tried my R iMac... and am now watching. ;)

    Sorry i just get the video and upload it. I don't tweak it or anything because trying to edit that big of a file takes to long.

    Sure, no criticism intended. :) I just thought I had a problem with my gear and was about to give up. I was so pleased when I found the beginning. I didn't want others to give up too soon.
