    Do not use SIO2. The license system checks the authors database before it allows you to develop with it. What happens if he gets run over by a bus? That’s the end of your year long dev cycle and no refund of the license cost.
    The author also keeps on changing the license terms. My buddy bought a license when version 2.0 first came out. It allowed him to develop on Windows but target MAC for final deployment. Several months later a new Windows license was introduced and he is now expected to also buy Windows license if he wants to continue developing on Windows. SIO2 claim it was a bug that allowed him to develop on Windows initially. Really?
    AVOID SIO2 if you are serious about game development.
