I'm a little miffed that a, you can't be bothered to communicate with your customers

I'm sorry you felt frustrated enough to air your grievance on this public forum, but since you did I will reply.  I only ask that we resolve any further matters offline so as not to ruin this otherwise very friendly and informative thread for everyone else.  :)

I do communicate with customers and viewers daily, and spend a lot of time answering questions, taking suggestions, and thanking them for kind feedback.  I am sorry you are unhappy.  In our emails I have offered to help with your problem.  You have refused that help and instead have been demanding that I send you new content.

when you sign an agreement with someone you cant include the tutorials that have already been on sale without prior concent for the people that have already payed for them

You are operating under a misunderstanding of how commerce works.  When you purchase something it doesn't give you legal rights to control that content in any way, only to use and benefit from it.  Paying customers benefitted from the content months before anyone else did, and get to keep hi-res versions of the video files.  Publishing the earlier tutorials for free is part of an arrangement that guarantees that everyone gets not only series 3 for free, but also all further content I make from this point on!  It's a great deal for everyone, and will get a lot more video content produced than would have been before.  I'm not negating the value of previous content, I'm adding what I feel is a tremendous amount of new content.  For everyone.  For free.

I've been asking for the scene files for over 2 months now and still you haven't replied

It's not fair to say I haven't replied.  I just haven't replied in the way you have been wanting.  ;)  The scene files were not part of the original packages.  That was made clear before the point of purchase.  I have had a few people ask for them though, including yourself, so I made sure to produce Series 3 with a downloadable file, complete with assets and scenes for each example in the videos.  Every FSM state has been commented, for even more explanation of their workings.  That file is available right now at:

http://www.hutonggames.com/tutorials_ios_fundamentals.php

Because Series 1 and 2 were produced in an "as you watch" style instead of the "guided tour" style of series 3, there are not project files to share that would match the videos exactly or make sense to the user.  To generate them would require a lot of extra time, and I instead decided to spend that time on developing the new iOS series (and general business activities that must be engaged in).

gamedivision, please, if you want help with parts of the tutorials just email me and I will help!  But I can't guarantee that I will produce new content for you on demand.  ;)

What about the future? Can we hope for more tutorials?

Oh yes!  :)  The new arrangement ensures that a lot more video content will be made than could have been before, and will be available to everyone.  This should be a good thing for everyone.  And thanks!

Thanks for the nudge!  I'm closing in on them.  Had several plates spinning the last couple months.  But the "to do" list for the iOS series is much shorter than the "done" list now.   ;)

LOL!  Thanks, MyFault!

@ gamedivision / I've got it in my queue to look into sharing out the files... working my way through everything as fast as I can right now.  Will let you know.

Thanks for the interest!  I got sidetracked by some other work last week, but will be getting the bulk of them knocked out this week.  :)

>When is your estimated time of release for that series?

I'd "like" to release it in two or three weeks, but it depends what else comes up between now and then.  You know how that goes.  :)

Thanks for the drag example.  Something like that would be a good one to use.  Quick question on that... do you want the object to ever stop on it's own after dragging, or keep on going forever (or until collision, etc)?

Yes!  I'm starting production on a touch/iOS series next week.  Lots of people are asking for that one.

Thanks so much for your kind words and support!  You beat me to the announcement (which is great!).  Let me know how you like them.

>Initially I had the idea to suggest to make some very small tutorials, specific for every action, some sort of
>Playmaker video manual: how do you use this node, what can you do with it (small case illustrations),

That's a pretty awesome idea!  I'd have to talk to Alex about the feasibility of that, but I think you are right that it would be super cool.


>When do you think we`ll have the pleasure of a new tutorial series?

I'm on schedule to finish capturing a new series today and tomorrow on Cameras.  I should be able to have that edited together and up within a week.  Then I'll begin recording an iOS series, probably followed by a UI series.  I'm a little spooky on the UI one since there are some looming big changes with Unity in the pipeline.

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! 

Loic, I had been planning on showing some AI in a series on making a basic tower defense game.  Would that be something that seems interesting to you, or were you thinking of AI in a different way?
