All old news items can be seen here (since I’m too lazy to import them into this new setup)
Looks like it’s been a while since I’ve updated this. I have been busy lately, but one thing I have been working on is GamePanelX v3. This is a complete rewrite from scratch. Working with the code for GamePanelX Pro was getting a little old, seeing as functions were scattered everywhere, and working with the Smarty Templating system just annoys me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great system to separate UI from Code, but it just takes too much time to open all these files to just make one small change. GPX V3 will have a cloud-based system, where you can click 1 button and install support for new games, no need to download anything anymore. Eventually this cloud system will also include user-contributed theme and plugin support. Also built-in updates, a reseller system, and best of all, GamePanelX Hosting. Once V3 is ready, we will begin hosting GamePanelX. More on that soon! Also you may notice the Google Ads on this site are getting phased out with my new HostGator banners for their awesome dedicated/vps servers, so at least you should see a common banner up top instead of the random ones before.

This new release will include a revamped interface, and our main features simplified and ajaxified. We will also be offering Cloud Hosting for the control panel, for those who don’t want to install it themselves, or don’t care to. With our cloud hosting package you will also receive direct support from us. Check back soon for more info and a release date.
Very big news coming soon for all of our users. We think you will all enjoy this announcement; Stay tuned!
Just completed major work on the Command-Line editor for the upcoming new GPX Pro. This thing is super easy to use, no more confusion. Many things on GPX Pro are being redesigned for better ease-of-use. Also expect a much cleaner UI. More updates to come!
Updates are coming to GamePanelX Pro; many new features and things never-before-seen in a game control panel. Stay tuned!
We are now hard at work on our next release of Pro, and are integrating many of the feature requests you have asked for. We are pushing this to become the most feature-full and advanced control panel available. Don’t hesitate to let us know what you would like to see in GamePanelX Pro.
GamePanelX Pro is now live and accepting orders! You can now purchase a new license in the Client Area. You will need a Master AND a Remote license for your system to work. If you participated in the beta, once you have purchased the new license, you must replace the old beta files with the latest files in the Downloads area. The older beta files will not work with the new licensing. Thanks to everyone who participated in the beta, and we hope to work with all of you in the near future!
We apologize for the delay; the final master server beta will be released this week. We now have 3 new languages supported – French, Portuguese, and German. This release will include an updated game query engine, and fix the manage server refresh bug (where pressing the AJAX refresh would only show “online” or “offline”, and not updating or creating). We also plan to release our WHMCS Billing Module this week.
Remote Beta Update: We have released the latest Remote Server files (v1.0.2-beta3). This will fix the FTP Server issues as well as the Restart/Stop/Creation issues people encountered. If you were using Ubuntu, you most definitely had issues trying to restart servers. It is recommended to download the beta3 files and redo a fresh installation of your Remote Server.
If you encountered a “License Error” after the v1.0.2 install, it has been fixed and you should now be able to use the control panel. Remember, if you move your Document Root or files to another IP Address, the license will complain and we will have to reset the license for you; simply open a support ticket if you need this reset. Thanks!
