GameSalad isn't running properly on High Sierra currently and until a new build is released to fix the issues it's highly suggested that you not upgrade to it!

We're currently looking into some fixes, but it's likely we won't have an update available on the launch day for High Sierra.

Just a heads up!

    Thanks for the notification! Normally I install new OSes on a new partition to test GameSalad, but I've not got around to it this time so really glad someone has and has given us some warning!

    Thanks, but we usually stay one whole version of MacOS behind. :D Meaning I'm just about to upgrade two iMacs to Sierra. Having used Macs since the original 1984 model has made me extra cautious. However, most of the grief has come from the 3rd party apps that we relied upon, not Apple.

    My partner's MacBook Pro came with Sierra but she doesn't use GameSalad... as yet! :p She would probably try the online tool when she can incorporate games into her websites.

    Cheers, thanks for the heads up.
    Great timing, I was wondering.

  • RowdyPantsRowdyPants Posts: 461Member

    Oh no... wish I had logged on earlier to see this. :rage: Just finished moving to High Sierra.

    GameSalad opens fine but Actor view and Scene view do not load correctly.
    Surprisingly Preview view does work.

    @adent42, any ETA?

    @Valan no ETA yet. I got half the problem fixed, but still working on a tricky bit. Luckily it's not too big, it's mostly me digging into code I haven't touched in a while and the fact that whatever change Apple made seems to be undocumented (or badly documented).

    If you're curious, it's tied to attribute rendering. Somehow the tree list we are using for attributes isn't rendering properly the first time it's called. Hopefully sometime in the next two weeks. (Between fixing stuff for the web tool and improving scalability of publishing).

    @ adent42 thanks.
    Just looking forward to the new file system. Can wait a few weeks.

    Heard Adobe are also finding breakages.

    Noooooooooooo.... just updated. WHAT DA HECK. Any eta on a fix @adent42? Clearly I need to spend more time reading the forum.

  • ValanValan Posts: 405Member

    Make a partition for Sierra and GS.
    Here's a link a MacWorld "how to"

    RIP... just saw this.

    Still working on it. This might come in handy in the meantime:

    El Capitan works just fine too, but I'm just about to move onto Sierra on my R iMac.

  • adent42adent42 Posts: 1,406Key Master, Head Chef, Executive Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee

    Sierra is still good, High Sierra is the problem. So feel free to keep going up to there :)

  • PhilipCCPhilipCC Encounter Bay, South AustraliaPosts: 1,390Member

    There are more reasons you may want to avoid High Sierra for a while, particularly if you want to ensure the integrity of your back-ups of your entire Mac incase you want to revert. This article from MacWorld is well worth a read:

    ARGHHHHHHH... I just saw it now, trying to understand why my GameSalad is suddenly blank. førck...

  • paulkerrypaulkerry Posts: 19Member, PRO

    too late but doesn't worry me for now because I have finished all my released for the year I will resume next year now.

  • diogoredindiogoredin Posts: 50Member

    Also dual Bootcamp is failing on high sierra.

  • HypnorabbitHypnorabbit SingaporePosts: 202Member, PRO

    @adent42 When do you expect a new release to be made? I just bought a new MB Pro with High Sierra preinstalled. But I'll sell it if the release is weeks away and buy something with Sierra because I can't sacrifice weeks of work. Thanks!

  • adent42adent42 Posts: 1,406Key Master, Head Chef, Executive Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee

    @Hypnorabbit unfortunately, a bit longer. We needed to shuffle some server apps around this week, so I've lost a bit of time, and the spare time I've spent on it, I still can't figure out what's going on. You can always try to install Sierra on a VM and run it that way for now if you're stuck.

  • HypnorabbitHypnorabbit SingaporePosts: 202Member, PRO

    Thanks @adent42 and will do. Unfortunately I've been away from GS for a while. Are PC and Mac file types still interchangeable? Anyhow- please keep us updated on the Mac fix.

  • HypnorabbitHypnorabbit SingaporePosts: 202Member, PRO

    Downgraded to Sierra don't worry.
