Hey  :):

I know it's quite recent events, but since apple released the tvOS SDK for the new appleTV, I was wondering whether Stencyl plans to support the platform ? Since tvOS is built around the existing iOS technologies I guess the main tasks would be to support the tvRemote as controller and add a 1080 screen resolution...

It looks like the tv remote  works in the same way as existing compatible external iOS bluetooth controllers that have been available since iOS7, and the resolution issues shouldn't be too bad to solve, so hopefully this will happen!!

I'd love to be able to have titles on for this new platform.  My colleague and I both registered for the 1dollar developer offer, but unfortunately  neither of us was lucky enough to get an early look, but I'll be buying on day one - I'm sure it will take off, and I want to be in the market early. My kids love the look of it, and our current gen apple tv gets so much use it's probably our most value for money Apple purchase.

i would LOVE to release (at least one of my) games for apple tv!

are there any plans to integrate that into stencyl? would be so awesome!

as far as i understood (please correct me if i am wrong) not so much needs to be changed  to be able to have an existing iOS game running on apple tv, right?

So there is already a demand for AppleTV export from Stencyl. I demand that too.

The right question is not "will Stencyl support AppleTV 4"  , the right question should be "When will Stencyl support AppleTV 4" With all the respect , but this is a must !

Stencyl needs definitely  more target plattforms !

Windows 10  Universal
AppleTV4
AndroidTV/NexusPlayer
Steam
iPad Pro

Stencyl is dependent on OpenFL for platform support, so if OpenFL doesn't support something, Stencyl can't even consider it.  Apple TV isn't ready yet.

It can't work in Stencyl until we move away from the legacy version of OpenFL/Lime.

Do you know when this will happen?

Hey, I know this an old thread, but I just wonder if any of the devs has looked in to this? The openFL forum seems to suggest it was possible to compile for apple tv back in oct 2015. It would be amazing if stencyl could add appleTV as a target in Stencyl 3.5.
