GMC Moderator Retires, Packt to Resume Cooking, Apple App Store to Open Up

  • Frostblade has retired from holding a moderator’s position at the official Game Maker Community. He joins a growing list of forum volunteers who have stepped down from their positions.
  • Packt Publishing appear to be looking to re-start their ill-fated Game Maker Cookbook project. The previous attempt was only half-baked before the author left the kitchen. If I was more sure about the Cookbook idea being what people want I would consider putting myself forward.

What do you think?

  1. So people can finally make Apple apps without using the apple software? I wonder what that will do to the approval process… how many potential apps will be declined from the app store simply because they weren’t made using the apple software?

  2. Mordi :I see the author is male. He is excused.

    Begging your pardon, but what is that supposed to mean?

    • Right. YoYo Games Instant Play will never appear on an iPhone, but Game Maker games potentially could with just a few changes to the runner. Eliminating execute_string, dynamic objects, dynamic timelines, room_set_code, and anything else capable of accepting code isn’t ideal, but it wouldn’t affect the vast majority of games.
