If such a change to a command is needed, maybe a new command could be created to generate exactly that?

When compiling to other os, PLATFORMINFO is required and is one of the most important commands. its stay as its are. Im have also newer seen its issue using string at all. Mostly we also uses it on init anyway, so speed is not important. If its was, you can allways do a function to convert it to array or such (whch im sometimes does).

here is what you see in the shop:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/485640/

Now im need to get a Mac build working. Im can also even give away cd keys to the PreRelease. The game is of course using Steam DRM, but im have still not integrated Steams Works (geting builds working was most important).

Greedy Mouse is now 100% approvede for sale on Steam, but release day is still 5 aug (while im is in Wales with virtually no internet in that week, but that ok).

Im hope im can integrate Steam Works (Archivements). The main issue im not sure how to add libs as well SteamWorks require a newer gcc compiler (its require 4.2+ or 4.4+). But since im managaed to xcode compile the c++ there with their newer compiler, its should not been a biggie.

So actuelly you can do Steam games without require Steam Works, but still can use Steam Clouds, Steam Trading Cards and Steam DRM.

Also im do wont do a documents how to setup steam that much, due there is a lots of NDA, but im can eventuelly help other to setup correctly. When first have setup, most can been done automatic.

Thanks.

due this glbasic community, im will give away some keys in the bonus area, and of course those people (Erico, Gernot etc), who helped me.

Both games is just released on steam. Genius Greedy Mouse got postboned one week, due trouble to include packs from the publisher (im understand). Its mostly those packs im got earn money for.

Also tomorrow im add France language as well. They translating for me (as well im did twice translating two games in return).

Im know there was two other green lighted games, but was newer released.

Also im got tradingcards approvede for both games. So rest is just could been better thing.

Nice to see first GLB games available on Steam, hope that's just a start of bunch other projects taking that path. Congratulations!
I think that important thing are Steam Trading Cards, as they can only help to sell your games even more as some ppl are collecting them for those badges (btw. really nice designed clay badges!), and sometimes thats only reason for them to buy such rare games that aren't already bundled (as cards price drops for bundled games). Hope you get high sales with both games! :-)

Yes, we used the teleports for the badges. But could not use that for the foil badge at all. Its looked too close to the others, hence its look different.

originally im only got 5 badges that was colored, but got a idea the ghost which was in black whith easely could been used as its are, and after few attempts, its got approvede for Karma Miwa as well in very very last deadline (its was few hours over), but its got done.

Even Steam can been buggy etc. The first two day sale had been very great, MUCH much better than both Android and iOS. Due possible NDA im can not shown how much im earn, but its a great sale.

Its quite very different when im got a lucky with a publisher and im have not regreat that.

So im hope me and Gernot can work to get this on Steam as well. Would been great too.
