Wow Nicolas those results are really amazing! It's nice to see someone that finally hitted the top! :D

Your idea of focusing on those projects is great but i think also it would be not so smart to "let andengine die" so I ask you to please please, upload a wiki, any wiki grab one and upload.

And a couple of mods.

Thanks

Only one question Nicolas. Are you earning money with paid version? or is better to release only an "ad" version?

For me (roughly):

Ad 20:1 Paid

But that always depends on the app and how you promote the versions.

Best Regards,
Nicolas

Thanks for your reply. My game only has only a free version. But I'm failing in marketing... it only has 1300 active installs... :|

This is my game:

CG on the results. :D

As far as mods go, I nominate Blundell for AndDev Deity.

  • Draw your stuff in vectors (i.e. Inkscape) (Kind of gives you a one-click "HD" version of your game)

Hi Nicolas can you elaborate on this please?

I want to start developing a game with your engine and I'm not sure about this yet, but how do I draw the graphics in Inkscape?
Does this mean that zooming in and out during the drawing of the game is made easier?
Do you have an example in which an Inkscape is drawn using OpenGL?
Thanks

What he wanted to say is that with inkspace is easy to make images of more dimensions. Inkspace is a verctor graphics program. The things you make with it if scaled do became nasty. So just make some grphic with it and save in every dimension you want. there is not a "direct integration". It's just easier to scale the images and get a better effect

Nicolas, regarding marketing of Farm Tower. Neither at Android Market
https://market.android.com/details?id=o ... mtower.eco
https://market.android.com/details?id=o ... .farmtower
nor on your own site http://farmtower.andengine.org/ there is no explanation about the differences between free and paid versions? Is it also some element of marketing policy or am I missing something?
Thanks for your reply in advance and for your great job with AndEngine
