    We’re ramping up for the Fall (as a rule I no longer teach, or really even touch the Xcode Betas anymore). Be patients guys. We do lots of free mentoring with students producing apps. Show us what you’re up to, and we’re glad to help!

    Nah, don’t touch the Main.storyboard. SpriteKit won’t like that. If you want an X sized alternative scene, name the .sks with PhoneX for example, MapsPhoneX.sks and then you can size that to be the right ratio. 812 by 375, or a factor upwards from that.

    What the code is doing is checking the nativeBounds.height and .width for certain sizes, and you can search the code for “PhoneX” to pull up all the places where it makes that check. For example…

    if (UIScreen.main.nativeBounds.width == 2436 || 
    UIScreen.main.nativeBounds.height == 2436 || 
    UIScreen.main.nativeBounds.width == 2688 || 
    UIScreen.main.nativeBounds.height == 2688) {

    So if there was some size in the future we need to add, it would go there. (there’s a couple places where that appears).

    Did you see this on Stack…

    I think you might have two of the same thing added to the Project. It can happen.

    I don’t think it has anything to do with that “Legacy Build System” that someone suggested.

    It could be anything that triggers it. So it could be the character or it could just be some piece of background art.

    To be exact thats the TouchEvent and TouchUpEvent properties.

  • January 24, 2019 at 12:00 pm #203063

    Thats something you could do with Event Listeners and setting values, think… State=stopped vs State= running).

    But I think a simpler way to do this is to make the character run when touched down, and stop on touch up.

    That’s a tough thing to integrate while keeping the property list simple. Instead of defining a single text input, specifying multiple inputs for overflow with a Property list just feels a little convoluted as that would require the max characters, and the extra label nodes. If I can think of an easy way to get it in there I will though.

    (As discussed in email) AnimateNodeOnPath is probably going to be the best bet.

    Just downloaded on the Apple TV. Played fine to me. Other than the fact that the actual Apple TV remote is like 1000 times inferior to an external controller. But I turned it sideways and gave it a go for awhile. Everything moved as expected. Playback speed (framerate) was fine.

    Humans just weren’t meant to treat tiny touch thumb pads like NES style directional pads. Maybe in a 1000 years we’ll evolve to get there

    Thanks, fixed the GUI search….

    Now that any member can upload their own game art and sell it (for members that art is free of course), compiling it into monthly segments just isn’t practical anymore. Check the last 30 days for the most recent stuff…

    Alright, GKGamePlayKit using Swift 4.2 it is. I’m on it.

    Executioner fixed. Let me know if you spot another bad link anywhere. Thanks!

  • January 8, 2019 at 9:28 pm #202662

    Unbookmark any of the past monthly links and go here instead…

    For tutorials, if you see something on Udemy or elsewhere, let me know and I’ll reach out to the teacher.

    Also if you create new scene files, you might want to duplicate the GUI.sks and drop in a new copy of that into your larger scene files. Again, demo’s updated to show that off.

    Just updated everything to Swift 5. In the Retro demo and Grassy demo, I added PhoneX.sks labeled files that are sized 2436 by 1125 for the larger phones. When you tried changing the name earlier, did you actually change the size of the scene as well? That might be what you missed doing.

    Sorry late to reply here. Martin, you subscribed the last month I was compiling and posting zip files for each month. As we get more and more contributors posting their art / assets / sound fx / whatever it is, the less practical it becomes to try to compile that together into a single zip file. A bit like Netflix deciding to zip up every show that was added in a particular month. Plus in a take a typical month I might not even know whats going to be added in the next 30 days, so I can’t compile any of that into a zip on the first of the month.

    So instead of going to the old page for big zips, go here instead…

    Plus I’m also starting to track what actually gets downloaded on a piece by piece basis (think Creator bonuses), so a zip of each month is going to sully that.
