:lol: Really? Now I must question your business sense... We both know how easy it is to steal andriod files... not to mention eclispe is free.. so now price nor port has no real value to devs... You probably should have just let Leif respond. Thanks anyway.

Actually I don't know how easy it is to steal android files, I haven't done anything related to android (though generally anything can be stolen easily)... Anyway, I wasn't really responding for Leif, merely pointing out that the price of 1000 is asking for less than the gE devs are offering, by about 500. Dropping the price by a third would be a nice deal. Sure some licenses are cheaper, but I wouldn't get your hopes to high about a lower cost.

gE being a wysiwyg editor is quite nice, not to mention its ability to port to many platforms. If you can't make that much by selling games to iPhone and now Android in a years time, your games aren't worth selling, and you shouldn't buy the license (the general message). Not sure where you got an idea of my business sense, seeing as I said nothing about business, just pointing out that there was already a drop in price.

Wow ! What a discussion :)

About 1000$. I think, that 500 for platform (iPhoneOs, Android) is good price. It's my opinion.
Another engine ? Cheaper & crossplatform? Tell me the name, i'll remember )
Steal Android programs? No, i want to MAKE games, but not STEAL games.
Business sence? Try FOREX.

About buying licenses. Of cource there are many engines, made by companies of developers, with support etc. Unity, for example (greatest thing !). But - I do not know it ! And - i know GE quite good. It takes time to learn how to work at another language, in another engine. To save my time - i choose GE for now.
Yet another reason - I believe that good price can help to make make GE better )) For example - i want sprite rotation to be made and script editor window to be sizeable )))

Thanks for the Clarification Leif, just wanted to know... it seemed kinda odd that someone would ask "How much would you pay for this?" Thats Gives any buyer the feeling that they are about to be taken advantage of or ripped off...ya know?

Thanks!




oh yeah just to clarify, i wasn't trying to say you would steal games/ android files, i was saying no games developed on android are safe from being stolen/shared. Its easy to share games/apps just like windows mobile 6.5 was..


Cant wait to see the price of the port... :D

Current Android engine is GE1.4. Future version might support the GE1.5 features. Therefore opengl features 2.0 need to be tested.
