    Building Buy, Sell, and Drug stats individual screens tonight. That will complete the game process without Police. Will probably be able to get basic police and end game all done tonight.


    NO MORE PMs We are full. Thanks.
    Please pm with email if you want to do the early alpha testing a starting this weekend. If I get a ton of responses, I might not respond to you. No slight intended, but I won't need more than a couple.

    Please make sure you are comfortable with installing homebrew before suggesting.

    Can we have a Space Trader version? I really hate the thought of dealing drugs, even in a game. I am a very anti drug person.

    I was asked the same thing by my wife. I'm looking at getting everything functioning and then porting to a different theme. I think the space trading is the best second theme. There is always a demand for those being "bad" and dealing and those not wanting to. I think two different ones will fir about everyone.

    No more PMs for testing. All full. Thanks.

    FYI - If you PM'ed me and did not include an email, you won't be added to the list for alpha testing. I don't want to have to send another PM for every person forgetting it.

    hows the app going?

    Thanks for the praise everyone. Currently working on some weird dialog issues with the buy gun/pockets and Police chase. I'm not doing something right in the mojo and locking up the app.

    Hopefully I can get that worked out soon and get a new version out. Almost enough features to do a public release if I can squash a few more of these bugs. Probably do one more alpha release before that, but not sure when.

    Dope wars and Space traders were awesome ^_^
    I definitely would drop some coin for those to apps, either trough the app catalog or donation on paypal.

    Not right now. All locations are in New York area. It didn't make sense to me to be able to drive half way across the country to trade in one day. Might expand it in the future, but much to do before that.
