    Hi Lex, sorry to bother you again.
    I've posted a thread in the iOS section asking if Kactors are supported on iOS, do you know if they or aren't?

    Thanks

        I haven't used KActor's myself on iOS but as far as I know, physics isn't supported fully on iOS yet...I'll look into it because surely by now they must have something working on the physics front!

            It doesn't work with characters dying..I tested it on an iPad 2 and when the character dies, he just disappears!

              Here is what i think, job in the gaming industry is fun. You will have to work one way or another. Every job is a job, but you are gonna get bored working at some boring office as an accountant or whatever. When you have to work why dont you do something that you love and that is fun.

                  It is. What part of it isn't as simple as that?

                  It's only hard if you don't don't love what you're doing. So if you hate it then you must not love making games, so your view on it is WAY different from everyone else. If you really love making games then it wont exactly seem like a job, more of an activity.

                      What? It's only the truth. If you don't like what you're doing, why do it in the first place?

                        What you're missing is that people get bored because they are faced with repetitive tasks. When the repetitive task ceases to be interesting, that's when the issue takes hold. Work in accounting for a while, and the tasks you do every day become boring because you do it every day. Work in programming for a while, and it's the same.

                          I've given up trying to explain that point ambershee..
                          I suppose if the shoe was on my foot and someone was telling me years ago that the industry wasn't any different to a 9-5 job, I'd have told them where to go
