When v1070 came out, I was ready to update my Mac files and did exactly what I would have done in Windows. I simply copied the directories from the zip file to the right place in my AppGameKit directory.

In windows, it would have simply replaced any existing files, without affecting anything that didn't appear in the copied directories.

On a Mac, it completely replaces the directory, wiping out anything you had added since it was originally created.

My game project directory disappeared completely.

It allowed me to go through the steps for setting up an Xcode 4 project and fine tune my instructions, given the changes in the interpreter.cpp file.

So, if/when you update your Mac AppGameKit setup, copy any of your project directories to somewhere above AGK/IDE and AGK/Projects.

Once you've updated your basic AppGameKit setup, you can copy your projects back. Then do the following (for Tier1 projects):
1. replace the 'UntitledViewController.m' file in your Classes subdirectory with the one from the new interpreter_ios
2. add the line '#define STANDALONE' as the third line in the 'interpreter.h' file

It doesn't appear that you need to do anything for Tier2.

In both tiers, make sure to clean your project and rebuild it.

Good luck!

So I'm not the only "stupid" guy in this world!!!!

You can image what kind of words came out of my mouth when this same thing happened to me!!!

So I can really understand your pain!!

Luckily it only took 15 minutes to rebuild the current project at hand!!!!

Yup, there is a learning curve when working in a new environment. I only started using a Mac (again) a few months ago. I had used one of the original Apple boxes back in the eighties.

I have a lot of 'fun' going between Windows, Mac and Linux boxes.

And it gets even more interesting when coding PHP or Perl (both require a semi-colon, like C and C++, at the end of statement) after spending time in Tier1 Basic, which does not use a semi-colon.

Oh well, it helps keep my brain active and agile.

Only thing I hate is that VS wants UINT uppercase and Xcode want it lowercase!!!

Is there a fix for this?

You could try creating a 'mydefines.h' file like this:


And make sure that it is the very first file included in your main app file.

That might work.

Yup. I just 'installed' v1072 for the Mac and followed my own instructions and it came up with no problems at all.

I've actually been scared to download v107 because v106 has been going so well for me. For v106 I downloaded the windows version, installed it, put the agk folder on my mac, and used the xcode ios templates to start my project. Ancient Lady do you think I should take the same steps to move to v107? I'm using t2.

I just downloaded 1073 today and haven't installed it on my Mac, yet.

I'm currently doing my Windows box. I'll work on the Mac one tomorrow.

I strongly suggest copying your Tier2 Xcode project directories outside of the Projects path. Then you should be able to do the Mac install and copy the directories back.

Don't delete the outside-Projects directories until you've rebuilt and tested the 1073 version.

I don't know if the templates for Xcode4 have changed from 106. I know the ones for Tier1 did, to fix some directory issues.

I don't have any Tier2 projects on my Mac, but I'll try compiling one of the example ones and see what happens.

I installed v1073 on my Mac yesterday and Tier1 still works fine.

I was distracted yesterday.

I might try a Tier2 example app today to see if it behaves.

I hope it went/goes well for you.

Ancient Lady, I'm having a problem with v1076 now. I read in another topic that you said
Quote: "3d, I have v1076 working fine in Mac and iOS.

What sort of problems are you having?

Did you download the 1076 zip file?

If you did, did you copy all of the directories to your Mac:
+ Code Snippet

AGK/IDE/apps
AGK/IDE/common
AGK/IDE/platform
AGK/IDE/templates (optional)



And, if you haven't, before you do, remember to copy any of your project directories in AGK/IDE/apps to a directory elsewhere so they don't get lost when you copy the AppGameKit directories. Macs wipe any everything when you replace a directory (unlike Windows which just replaces and adds).

And, having done all the above, did you replace the files in the Classes directory in your project with the ones from the new interpreter_ios/Classes directory? Some have changed since 1074 (I think).

What version of Xcode are you using?"
I followed these steps and now my project wont run. I get his in the output window

I left my game folders in the agk when I copied over the new agk folder. Do you think that's the issue? another thing my game folders are in the template folder. Do you think thats part of the as well?

Unfortunately, the templates have not been kept up to date.

This thread shows how to build an Xcode app from the templates (lots of edits and things needed): http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=198029&b=41

I haven't watched the video, but the feedback is positive.

I just need 1 edit, the opengl init line.

It seems that the templates were not even tested once, I wonder if they are any good at all or built to fully function properly with 1076 without hidden problems!
