            Probably to indicate that you aren't giving enough information and that it probably means nothing of importance anyways.


            Also, because I can.

              So of your 1168 posts, were any of them helpful or just pointless comments like that one?

                if you want to get a useful response, you must give enough information about what you talking about.

                  I'd like to think that all my posts are completely useless and unhelpful.

                    Why does his emoicons always come up as urls? also cloud doesnt refer to anything in specific its just a current buzzword. Its actually for PC and seems to relate to facebook but it could easily be iOS or even steamcloud. The idea for cloud was formed over people using clouds as the shape for an idea, an object in some aspect.

                      To expand off of what Mons just said, the "Cloud" buzzword nowadays relates to the newer iteration of TCP/IP v6, which instantiates "Cloud Computing" or sub-networking that connects local or non-local computers that wish to attach to each other. The best example of this would be the Steam Cloud, and its no surprise that they're putting it on phones as IPv6 has been around since Vista.

                        Cloud may not mean anything specific, but CloudGame does mean something specific as it is the example implementation of the iCloud, InApp Purchase, iAd, and Facebook integration features for iOS.

                          So none of those features are available for PC? Not in specific to the iCloud but micro-transactions, ad supported software and facebook integration.

                            I think iCloud documents might work on PC actually. The others are currently iOS only as far as I know. You could certainly implement your own micro-transaction system on PC. I just don't know how it would be built-in since there isn't a single supported system on PC like there is on iOS. The same is basically true for in-game ads. Since Apple provides a framework for these things, it is easy to support them. Facebook is difficult on PC because you need something like an in-game web view to listen for callbacks or possibly a TCPLink to an external server that handles the communications with Facebook's servers. On iOS, having callbacks routed to the game is easy.

                              Luckily UTGame doesn't extend from that. It's good to see that the GameInfo hierarchy has been cleaned up in general since the introduction of SimpleGame.

                              Now they just needed to get the GFxUI stuff out of UTHUDBase and further down the tree into UTGFxHUDWrapper.
