Should GS users be worried about changes in GameCenter?
Maybe you guys can help me with understanding the wording in this. It is from Apple's documentation on what is new in iOS 10.
The GameKit framework (GameKit.framework) includes the following changes and enhancements:
**_The Game Center app has been removed. If your game implements GameKit features, it must also implement the interface behavior necessary for the user to see these features. For example, if your game supports leaderboards, it could present a GKGameCenterViewController object or read the data directly from Game Center to implement a custom user interface.
A new account type, implemented by the GKCloudPlayer class, supports iCloud-only game accounts.
Game Center provides a new generalized solution for managing persistent storage of data on Game Center. A game session (GKGameSession) has a list of players who are the session’s participants. Your game’s implementation defines when and how a participant stores or retrieves data from the server or exchanges data between players. Game sessions can often replace existing turn-based matches, real-time matches, and persistent save games, and also enable other models of interaction between participants._**
Is this drastically changing Game Center? Do we now need extra features to be able to use leaderboards and such? Do we need to show custom leaderboards within our app rather than the generic game center leaderboards? Are we left in the dark if Gamesalad with its new education first stance chooses not to support Apple's new Game Center services?
