So I missed my target date

by midge 16. January 2015 03:34

I took the day off of work to work on the game. Although I missed my arbitrarily imposed target date, I'm glad I tried to take it seriously, it gave me enough of a push to really work on finishing this up. Last night I think I worked on things until 4am. I did sleep until about noon, but after that I was right back to it. Off and on until about now.

So the game center stuff is almost completely all done. I did use a deprecated method that I'll probably have to find a replacement for but all the achievements work and they're pretty cool.

I made a quick little game completed, thanks for playing the game screen. No big deal, but it's nice to have a little something there when someone finishes the game. I guess the gameCenter achievement stuff is really what ate up all my time.

I realized that I had made a stupid typo and then copy-pasted it everywhere for the achievements, it made me have to re-create all of the achievements in itunes connect because it was a non-editable field.

Alright... so I'm not done, what's left?

Gamecenter bug - you can start playing before you log into gamecenter, then the login pops up over the game while the game is already going. I need to fix this.

Replace that deprecated code, which actually is what calls the aforementioned login issue. Who knows where fixing this will take us.

Getting it to size properly on different phones. I'm sticking to iPhones for now, and I think that was a wise decision. One of the advantages of iOS dev used to be that you were only developing for a screen size or 2, not any more.

Test more on actual devices.

Make sure that all resources are public domain. If any are not, replace them with public domain alternatives.

A VERY simple webpage for the game. I haven't decided where to host this yet, but I really want to go the simplest route possible. Google sites? Somewhere on this site? Github page? I dunno. I'm not sure I want everyone who plays the game to see all my stupid pictures on this blog.

A possible tip jar, this may still get cut.

Distribution profile an misc app store screenshots/forms etc.

Not too bad.
