    yes, even after subscription end you still share profit with them and you cant edit/update your apps. LMOA

    You should always be able to edit it. Since at that point you will be on the free plan.

    i understand why would they want rev share at low entry point into the software , but not to have a pro subscription plan where you pay little more and not have to share revenue does not make sense !

    Because of the sudden change in your policy, my debt clients sell them to Buildbox templates calling me a liar for not being able to add AdMob ads ! .What am I going to do now I will delete all my games from the (codecanyon) and (codester) due to the new bad policy, Sudden changes every time cause us a lot of trouble :(:(:(:(

    So when you buy a product for a fixed price the seller can just change the terms and start demanding more money from you? Because that's exactly what's happening now. As I said. Legal Nightmare.

    @andre_sprs this is the best in my opinion

    BB Classic & BB3 Free --> 25% revshare for Buildbox and 75% for creators
    BB Classic & BB3 plus --> 5% Revshare if a game crosses $5000 treshold
    BB Classic & BB3 Pro --> No Revhsare

    I think this plan will not only make the buildbox reach more people but it will protect paid users also.

    Also, stop the Buildbox World, the current export scheme of thing are good, we can add many sdk in the exported android project, if we are constrained to Buildbox world export, we will loose out the oppertunity to add some SDK's.

    In case, the GREEDY people dont agree for this, atleast the current BB procudures should work till the end of the subscription. later we will not subscribe to BB at all, Please convey this points to BB team.

    I didn't read that they are taking away the old exports unless you do it through build box world. Although if they did, I wouldn't be surprised. It will make sure that the integration with Applovin and their tracking can't be changed. Although I was thinking of keeping my pro subscription if this is the case it just kills it for me. Without being able to add Tenjin or Appsflyer and GameAnalytics, I just don't know how to make money out of games.

    There is definitely not any sort of plan to make Buildbox World the only export option. We're looking to add more export options, not remove them to be clear.

    Steam is still in Buildbox 3. For BBClassic we've condensed it down to EXE. There were several BB2 export options that had not been updated in years and were no longer relevent for the Classic relaunch. Going forward we'll be looking to add more options to what we have currently updated and maintained.

    Depending on demand possibly. The EXE export option can be used for Steam so there would need to be a specific reason that the EXE export does not fulfill

    still no comment on how these changes will affect working with publishers , first publishers will need test version with no ads at all would that still be possible ? second publisher will need to use admob would that not be possible ? !
    and how is the revenue share , would BB take their share from the top before publisher cut or from developer cut? please any one from BB comments ?

    Yes, absolutely.

    This would be possible.

    We'll have an announcement in the next few days regarding more information and updates on revshare. It is positive news so stay tuned :)
