Support AndEngine - Donate Today

Postby Nicolas Gramlich » Tue Dec 03, 2013 10:54 am

Hello Community,

while it has been extremely fun for me to develop AndEngine as open source and available for free and with a 100% permissive licence, there is also another side to the story. Months over months of unpaid work went into the project and I'm paying a significant monthly server hosting fee for this forum and the blog (Over 4 years, this sums up to some serious :money: :money: :money: ).

If you were lucky enough to make a profitable game with AndEngine and you are able to share some of that with the AndEngine developer to cover i.e. hosting costs, now is your chance. If you can't spare anything I'm still very thankful for making AndEngine so successful! Without you guys AndEngine (and me) wouldn't be where and who it is right now.

Setting up a paypal account might be a better option. Most of devs have Paypal account to get their money from admob.

I agree with nazgee. I'm happy to make a donation (unfortunately not from any profits my apps have made :( ) but I'll have to do a bit of research into donating to a bitcoin wallet. I'm sure it's not beyond me though if you have your reasons.

Nicolas, are you willing to buy guns or drugs with your bitcoins?

Lol, no guns for me. I'm a little scared of them tbh. Those triggers are way too small. I do like archery though... so if you want to donate a bow... ;)

Added a paypal address above: donate@andengine.org

Thanks guys!

@nazgee love the lighting of your game! (Screenshots at least) I've been playing around with something similar recently :)
@alb really UI for the football anagram. Will give it to my father since I'm not very knowledgeable in soccer =D

Thanks! There is not much interest in the game so far (need a lot more +1s and ratings to kick it off)... but at least I had chance to play with lights a bit :)

I've just did a little payment via paypal only to find out that since new admob happened all my earning are accumulated in my adsense account, and adsense is not using paypal... which means that adding paypal email might not have been such a good idea as I originally thought. Sorry for that.

Hi Nicolas,

I just transfered a little something. Although I moved on to Unity in the meantime, Andengine and this forum helped me a lot getting started with game programming.

All thumbs up und beste Gruß aus Köln!
