it will depend on who is using it:
git like repository/version control/issue tracking will be better for larger projects (I don't plan to migrate Hive to this though, unless you use github as the back end or something)
CLI will be good for people who want to use it on "normal" computers or (badly) embed it in their programs
the game profile API thing just sounds like something people will have fun with (will this lock their program to your appstore though?)

Yeah and no I will make it so you can transfer projects from Github to it!! :P and errr, what do you mean lock their program to the app store??

I think what he meant is that, if a person uses the game center api, will it make it unusable to anyone who doesn't have the appstore installed on their computer? I think you could easily make that not a problem by having anyone using the API just do a ~= nil check before calling or using anything from the api.

Yeah the idea I had was have a small API you can download via http on program start that has a few post functions to allow you to post game trophies etc...and then if you do not have HTTP then it just tells you, you are offline. If you have the store installed then it can load the store with the game name, and bring up all trophies you have??

Would it be possible to display how many times an app has been downloaded?

I'm kinda confused as to how to download an app. Do I need an account, or...ehh? Do I press the number key corresponding to the app, or do I click on the app name? Neither work when browsing after clicking a catagory.

Yes sorry it was a bug that I never remembered to fix, you need to go on all apps and then from there you can click to get information about the app! I shall fix that today! Categories don't work completely!

Hey guys will be adding a new downloads function which records everytime you do a download, please note this is to be a part of the new stocks system being created. Please note that it will be a view on how many downloads all the programs get and with my new star rating system we can monitor how apps are doing:)

I suggest just some yellow octothorpi (#####).
When one is "toggled", draw a yellow "#" on a black pixel.

I am wondering how would I calculate some kind of star rating, use an average? Hmmm....

Well, what I would do is have ratings from 1 star to 5 stars. Each user may rate the program however they want but when returning the rating return the average and display according number of stars in the program.

Yeah that would be logical.
I think that if you could rate a minimum of 1 star then you could show 0 stars if a program hasn't been rated yet.

Another thing you could do to your app store is polish up the interface. While it functions great (and you put all that effort into an app store in a mod for a game), the color scheme looks a bit garish.

Already on that one :P Allowing you to change the colours to your own preferences and then these are loaded when you login :D
