RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
hey Grzegorz , If you wanted to get your stuff on Indiegogo or kickstarter, you could always change the name of Esenthel so that it longer qualifies as an already developed commercial product. LOL. Then you could just act like its a completely new product that has never been released. LOL. that would be so wrong...but it would also probably work. But on a serious note...food for thought, there seems to be alot of great programmers laying around here, dieing to improve on your Engine. If you teamed up with one or two of them to speed something up that was a completely new game engine...you could actually make alot of money putting that new engine out on kickstarter and indiegogo. Just something to think about.

RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
Esenthel is an easy name, which is composed of essential and essence.

Creating a whole new engine based on this engine is useless, even for a kickstarter project.

Though I would like to see Esenthel teaming up with Zervox or Yvanvds here, since in my eyes, they have the most experience with Esenthel. Fatcoder also comes to mind.

Is this truth or speculation? I actually wouldn't mind hearing the story behind the name, if there is one. I've always wondered about it.

This is the truth; been here quite some time, and read all the posts Esenthel made throughout the years (even though I was not registered)

RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
what i posted was a joke. But honestly what i would like to see is that Grzegorz allows community made add-ons to be sold in community store so that some of the great programmers around here could make a little money. The whole community would benefit from it.

lol, my $10 cleared this morning, from nearly 2 weeks ago.
If it's mine, can it be moved to Hardware Instancing?

I am not sure what people don't like about the current process. I put my money to things i wanted an I was happy to do it. I know I am the minority but I think the process is just fine.

RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
The GPS support was recently developed because it reached significant progress in funding.

Thank you for the link, I'll check it out, however what does it have that the current process doesn't have? On this page http://itprism.com/free-joomla-extension...ng-capital I see that payments are done through PayPal, which I already support in the current system. I'm not sure that PayPal allows for "delayed payments" which are realized upon reaching the goal of the funding. I think that it supports only instant and subscription payments.

RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
I would prefer that payments only get taken once the goal is reached, I'm much more likely to back items then.

RE: Question about Crowdfunding - Donation system
I agree that I would be more inclined to back something that I know I'll be paying for once its been completely backed.
