Update On App Loader Please?

peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
Alright, it's been a couple days since the last post regarding App Loader and I for one would love an update to put my mind at ease.

Has anyone successfully uploaded an app created in GS 0.8.8 via the App Loader?

Very keen to know, as 6.5 days from now I'll have my iPad AND iPhone 4 (so long as there are no delays here - our pre orders aren't open yet which alarms me a tad) and will then be able to test and upload - provided the AL works fine.

Peach.

    I haven't personally used it, but its been around forever and I'm sure other people have. I wouldn't worry about it, it'll work :D

    I haven't. It returns me the icon error message.

    Also, I think that is no longer possible to compile with 0.8.7.
    When I uploaded the file, I received the message:

    "Error during packaging, please try again later: Can not compile 0.8.7 package for GameSalad Creator"

    This is pissing me off =/

    Yes, currently you can not submit as the Application Loader doesn't work for GS builds. Hoping Gendai are on to it or we all have some pretty useless software!
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    GAH. This isn't what I want at all >.<'

    I want to see a yellow post telling me not to worry and that there will be a fix in the next day or two!

    Every step of the GS process I've had issues; not because of GS, but various things - Apple, my computer, working out a damn ABN when a proof of age card means less than a bank statement.... Gah.

    When I FINALLY have my iDevice I want to be able to publish.

    Please Gandai? Halp us. Or the sheep gets it! *Puts QS in a choke hold*

    Put on your pitiful eyes, sheepy!
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    Yeah, it needs to be addressed quick-smart. Supposedly it's an easy fix... why is it taking days?

    Glad I got my final version of my game submitted before they cut off the old submission process!
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    Really I'd just like to see a time frame if nothing else; it does need to be addressed (obviously) ASAP - but what concerns me is it is now the weekend here, not far off anywhere else, and I for one would like to know if we're looking at a fix in 48 hours or in 4 to 8 days >.<'

    Makes me nervous XD
  • JamesZeppelinJamesZeppelin Posts: 1,927Member
    Really you still can't publish games?

    That's some serious BS

    I've been a big supporter but im really starting to think gendai operates on the principle of:

    We've already got your money and there's plenty more kids wanting to make games in this long line.

    I think a good number of people either grow out of GS or get too frustrated so they know it's make the sale and send you packing market.
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    It sure is.
  • JamesZeppelinJamesZeppelin Posts: 1,927Member
    Yeah I know what I said was a bit harsh but when the product actually breaks and we don't even really know what's up. What are we supposed to think.

    Other than thanks for getting me started Gendai. :)
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    I love GS - I just hope they value us enough to give us some news, if not a fix, by the weekend.

    If we hear nothing over the weekend, until Monday or later - then my confidence will be shot.

    We'll see - they know it's a problem; I'm going to believe they're working their asses off to fix it and have been SO busy doing so that is why they haven't told us anything even remotely useful about WTH is going on.

    I better be right >.<' The sheep in my choke hold appears to be losing life, fast. I'd say he's at 65% already - and until I know I can publish my games, I wont be drawing any health packs. The sheep's life is in YOUR hands, Gandai.

    I have a completed app, but I'm unable to submit it because of this "Icon error" problem. Hopefully this problem will be fixed soon, because I'm sure a lot of people are just as frustrated as I am.
  • osalzanoosalzano Posts: 136Member, PRO
    Hey Gendai, what about a yellow post?
    Please!

    So I can't submit a game now from the website can I?

    Nope. As of the 22nd, Apple cut off submissions via the webform and now you have to do it through Application Loader.

    I'm not really supportive of the negativity as for many of us, game/app publishing wouldn't even be possible if it weren't for Gendai. They've produced an exceptional piece of software that NOBODY else has been able to come even remotely close to resembling (when it comes to iPhone/iTouch/iPad publishing) so I'm confident that they can fix this seemingly small bug (hey, everything else GS produces seems to comply perfectly with Apple's stuff, why wouldn't they be able to get everything working with the Application Loader?).

    When I first heard of this issue, I immediately emailed Gendai to let them know just in case they missed the commotion in the forums and just yesterday they said they are working to get it fixed, if that makes anyone feel better.

    I'm pretty sure a yellow post will make it's way to this thread soon :)

    Stay positive, and good luck Gendai! Thanks for all your hard work.
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    Yeah, they often don't bother posting to the forums. I received a personal email about the timer problems in 0.8.8. I do think it's be good business practice to try and keep members in the loop when it comes to these issues. It's pretty easy to get freaked out when you can't upload something you've been working on for months and there are no resonses to questions asked on the forums DAYS after the problem has emerged.

    I guess they're just busy spending that million dollars :P

    As for the software, you're right... it's an absolutely AMAZING piece of kit, this GS. I am constantly finding out cool stuff I can do with it. I love it! I'd also just like a little better communication ;-)

    Upload binary in itunes connect seems to be still available.
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    Hmmm, maybe Apple have kept it alive as others are having issues too... not just GS users?
  • jonbeebejonbeebe Posts: 49Member
    I definitely hope so, that would explain WHY/IF Gendai has been having issues fixing it...
  • bluelotusbluelotus Posts: 96Member
    I do hope they are on it... and I am sure they are :)

    Apple deciding to do away with the ITC binary upload must have really thrown a monkey wrench in GameSalad dev's works!

    Keeping my fingers crossed!
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    jonbeebe - I don't think anyone here is really negative about GS; we'd have to love it or we wouldn't pay money for it.

    It's just that when things like this come up, it obviously rattles most of us - and seeing an update about what is going on would obviously really help with that.
  • BreezeonholdBreezeonhold Posts: 187Member
    What exactly is the app loader?? lol Something to do with are binaries??
  • YodapolloYodapollo Posts: 447Inactive
    Hey, everybody!

    Fix is up. Sorry for the delay. GameSalad 0.8.9 should resolve all issues with Application Loader.

    Awesome! See I knew it... Thanks Gendai.

    Going over to read the blog post to see if anything else is new...
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    Thank you YodaPollo <3 My mind is at ease and the sheep will live another day.
  • FranzKellerFranzKeller Posts: 517Member
    I'm still getting "no elgible applications found" though on the website, it says "waiting for upload" or something

    I can navigate to the .app with App loader, but it's greyed out, darn it...
  • ricardorauberricardorauber Posts: 26Member
    I have just finished my first game and tried to upload on Application Loader but I'm getting the message:

    Application failed codesign verification. The signature was invalid, or it was not signed with an Apple submission certificate.

    I've searched on the forum for any help but got nothing yet.
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    Have you created all your distribution profiles etc within iTunes Connect?
  • ricardorauberricardorauber Posts: 26Member
    I was just looking it.

    I have created all but was using the wrong certificate on GS publishing.

    Thanks
  • POLYGAMePOLYGAMe Posts: 3,470Member
    No worries... I think this happens to EVERYONE. lol.
