Re: waits and movements again

Why wouldn't you have two cards with things in place, then just move from one to the other with a nice transition? All this moving seems to be pretty convoluted...

But I'm not the designer, so you may have a good reason or two.

Re: 8-puzzle game

It would help if you would give us the error code information that LiveCode gives you when it breaks on this line. If sSpaceButton is a variable that contains a number for the random() function to use, that should be OK, and if tButtonToSwap is a variable that can receive the new number generated, t...

Re: Mac App Store Submissions

I don't know where you are getting that information from Mark. http://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/clarify/id455888980?mt=12 Clarify from Blue Mango Learning is definitely in the Mac App store and it was also featured by Runrev as being developed with LiveCode: http://www.runrev.com/company/runrev-blog/c...

Opinions on a purchase

I have a platform credit with Runrev that would give me a free platform. I have Mac/Windows and iOS already and have signed up as an Apple dev already. I work with Windows in my day job as an architect because Revit only runs on Windows, so Parallels has become my friend. But bottom line I am a Mac ...

Re: detecting movement finished

A variation would be to have each item put it's name after a variable as it completes the move or it's counter goes to zero. Then you have everything collected and ready to group or deal with as you need to.

Re: Quicktime version

Quicktime is part of the Mac core software set, so is always installed, but it is updated independently - sometimes when iTunes is incremented or for other reasons. The player software is again a separate piece of software that used to be purchased, but now a stripped down version comes with Lion I ...

Re: Data synchronising between desktop and mobile

Would it be possible to just have a data stack that lives in the user Dropbox folder? I know you don't NEED cloud access, but if both apps worked off a common database and were not accessed simultaneously, it would do away with the whole sync issue. I do this manually with certain files, but don't k...

Re: GeoCache App, need help

I sometimes see 5 m on my iPhones here on the prairies of North America without trees. With my Garmin handheld GPS i could sometimes get 3m accuracy which I believe is the limit of the unenhanced signal. Surveyors use other tricks to get their accuracy down to centimeters.

Re: Oiling the Gears in an App with Lots of Moving Parts

Just off the top of my head, trying to go back to lesson 3 or 4 where Dave was talking about animation - seems a long time ago now - In the tutorial Dave said that intersect was relatively processor intensive, so once the player has successfully matched planet and orbit, why not just set a flag for ...

Re: Issues with the IDE

Thanks Jacque. I know the issue that you're talking about, but I'm sure that it was something else because the re-install fixed it.

Glad to be working again,

Re: Issues with the IDE

That actually works Sturgis - thanks.

A reinstall seems to have solved the other IDE issues.

Thanks

Re: Issues with the IDE

That's what I tried the iteration before the one I posted. I copied the syntax right out of the dictionary, so I've got to believe that was right.

Anyway, the download is finished so I'll do the reinstall.
