I feel good when someone sees my Flash Lite application running on a handset, but feel bad when he can’t play on his, just because he does not have a compatiable handset . Feel worse when he has a compatible handset for older version of Flash Lite (1.1), as the player is no more available. Feel worst when he has a version 2 Player compatible phone, yet don’t know where to get it with in seconds ! He is not an iliterate, yet he does not understand the registration process for getting a version 2 Player ! He does not want to be a developer of the FL games, yet he does not mind to be one just to get a free player. But he understands super mario or the sudoko, and just wants to play them on his mobile. When a J2Me game runs on his handset, he is sure that he won’t need to be into hassels for a player, and is satisfied with it. Did I mention he is an average Indian game addict ?
Yester day I met someone who has the money to invest in tech areas…he has some pre assumptions that Flash Lite sells well . Well he asks to build a game that will play on every phone. You say Just Nokia … he say No! he argues…you defend. Then he agrees. He says all Nokia sets. You say No! After all people need FL 1 Player on their handset to play that and it is no more available. He is fraustrated and agrees to give u a project for a game to be developed in “Flash Lite 3”, in near future, when 90% of game addicts would have changed their FL phones (with out players) with the sets with the players . And till then ? Did I mentioned he will release a J2Me game tomorrow ?
