Desert Stormfront is now in beta-testing stage. If everything goes as planned, it is scheduled for release next month (September 2012) on PC, Mac, Linux & Android. The iOS version will be available once the libgdx backend supports porting to iOS.
I managed to acquire a code signing certificate in .pfx format from Comodo. There are a couple solutions in the internet suggesting to download jetty or install OpenSSL to convert the .pfx to a Java Keystore (.jks). However, the solution is much simpler and only requires the keytool included in the Java Development Kit. The whole procedure requires 2 steps and allows creation of a custom alias for the Java Keystore.
For Step 1, we need to find the alias stored in the .pfx file. Copy your key file (e.g. keyfile.pfx) into the same folder as the Java keytool. Then run the following command in the console to create a listing of all the certificates in your keyfile.
I am currently trying to wrap development of Desert Stormfront. Nick sent in all the graphics a while ago. It’s all integrated and ready to go. Travis is currently working out the 30 campaign missions planned. Will hopefully be done by the end of the month and ready for beta-testing. Contact me via email (“Beta-Testing”) if you are interested in becoming a beta-tester for the game (Android, PC, Mac or Linux). Testing involves play-testing the 30 campaign missions (no technical testing required). No money paid, but you’ll receive a copy of the game for free and will have your name in the game credits.
