Was NGUI used to create the menu system?
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:12:41 PM »
Hello,

Was NGUI used to create the menu system in this game?

Is there a dev log about Starlink. I'm interested in how the game was developed and what tech?

Regards,
Dan

NGUI for UI, TNet for networking, yup. Anything in particular you're curious about?

Love the game - very addictive :)

You mentioned Bluetooth connectivity.  When will this be available in TNet?

When I add it to TNet, yes.

First there are apparently more bugs to fix with the current version of the game before I add any additional features.

I just found a demo of Starlink in my downloads folder. I don't remember downloading it, and then continuing with my study of NGUI I reviewed my old posts here (I've been doing so much posting and asking questions about Unity & Tasharen products all over the place that I lose track)... any way I found this post and started up the demo I got (don't remember where or how) and went to multiplayer. It says to buy the full version to  use multiplayer. Which I plan to do. I just want to know how busy multiplayer is. Is it easy to get a match?

BTW. The game is absolutely gorgeous!

From what I've seen multiplayer has been mainly quiet. Most people play Starlink single-player or LAN on their handheld devices. Few play via the available internet-based server.

I'm curious, are the planets, hyperspace routes, and ships also using NGUI?

Nope, straight up GL calls.
