    Am I understanding it correctly that we will be able to create app that will be able to sell things via IAP plugin, and at the same time if webgl will not be enabled on device (lets say ios7 and older) c2 will safely use canvas renderer?

    Seems great to me. Ditching cocoon for app creation will be salvation for me.

  • Sorry to bump this, but I have a question.

    I'm having trouble with specific Macs... If their videocard is the Intel HD 3000, I get some weird artifacts in my game when using Node-Webkit. I do not get the same artifacts if it's the same videocard running on Windows.

    This only happens with some webgl effects. In this case my character has a ReplaceColor effect, so this black square appears around her... It also happens with the outline effect but that's a 3rd party plugin.

    However, it doesn't happen with some effects like the greyscale effect.

    It really looks like it would be problem that could easily be fixed by updating the videocard, but I'm new to OS X and apparently this isn't a possibility. I'm running OS X 10.9...

    Anyone experienced anything like that? Right now this is the only thing avoiding me from releasing my game on OS X.

    I'm pretty sure even on Mac NodeWebkit is Chrome based and no related to the WebGL Safari.

    I may suggest seeing if the intel card is blacklisted. Possibly the current OSX drivers for the GPU might be off. But this shouldn't be related to WebGL for Safari.

  • andreyin - does Chrome on the same Mac show the same issue? What does it say if you visit chrome://gpu?

  • andreyin that looks like it's going to Canvas2D not WebGL. I make Node-Webkit exports for my game as well and have no issues on Macs.. (so far)

  • Are people still able to submit iOS 6 apps? I bought a iPod Touch 4G last Christmas but didn't do much until now.

    PS: Why does the headline say "...and OSX 10.10"? Was this really a surprise to anyone?

    Ashley It does show. This is what it says on my chrome://gpu page:

  • So it's probably a driver bug or a Chrome issue. I'd suspect a driver bug, especially if other browsers show the same issue.

  • I think so.. it's too bad. Maybe they're still using old drivers for Intel HD 3000? I hope it gets fixed by 10.10...
