If that is true why are you still here? :)
if I'm making money from something developed using freely available software, there's a certain moral imperative to give something back
To really be successful, we need to go the way of the app-store model and bandwagon onto successful games. That's why we've been focusing on this standalone installer system which gives games a more professional non-BYOND feel in exchange for a more realistic app-store cut (25%) of subscriptions. If a few games can take off through standalone clients and flash portals, they can make a lot of money for themselves and for us, which will keep the project going.
The new installer will be behind a pay wall?
I'll keep supporting BYOND. It's quite amazing, especially if you've ever tried to program multiplayer logic.
I was really just interested in the idea that doing a PayPal library would be possible and doable in byond.
