Shipped Tittles with SIO2 Engine

Post  Zanna on Sat Nov 01, 2008 3:13 pm

Hi,

I'm new to the SIO2 engine community and I'm very curious to know if anyone has already shipped a tittle on the Apple Store using this engine.

Please post the name of your app/game if you did. I'll definitely buy it to check it out.

PS: Thanks a lot to SIO2Interactive to provide us with this great resource!!!

PPS: It could be interesting even create a stick post on the forum where everyone will post their shipped tittles to celebrate the success of this community and this engine!

Zanna

That's cool, I'll check it out when I'm through with my project (deadline: today). How long did it take until it was approved by Apple?

Best,
Matt

*sigh*

We're currently going through this code-signing-hell everybody talks about. The principal is currently trying to get a signed, working release version but with no luck so far. The error message he's getting is "A sealed resource is missing or invalid" when the sealed app is tested with the codesign utility and -vvvv parameter.

Any hints appreciated.

Best,
Matt

After about 10 hours of struggling it's finally online. Hooray. Now keep your fingers crossed that the AppStore people like it.

Best,
Matt

One of the first SIO2 apps. Congratulations!

Now, if you donŽt mind, a couple of questions regarding your personnal experience in this project Smile

- Is this a personnal project or a proffesional one?
- What things in SIO2 would you change or add?

Now a suggestion. A free "Lite" version is a good way users know your app...

It was meant to be a personal one but it became a professional one. I'll probably write a "post mortem" later and tell the whole story.

jlperan wrote:What things in SIO2 would you change or add?
SIO2 is great and did its job well. One of the big plusses is the Blender toolchain. But there are several limitations, e.g. the transformation system (e.g. I had to move, rotate, move, rotate, which could not easily be represented by SIO2's object rotation / position, so I used plain OpenGL matrix transformation and pushed that back into the object), that there's no scenegraph available (parent-child relationships, relative transformations,...), and that it's not OO (but that's a very subjective issue indeed). I would also drop the Vorbis/Theora support since it doesn't make sense on the iPod/iPhone, decoding full-screen videos doesn't work (in software) at all and loading OGGs takes way too much time. In this case, you're much better off with Apples native APIs where the decoding algorithms are implemented in hardware. (I dropped the whole Vorbis/Theora/Lua stuff because we didn't need it.)

Best,
Matt

Interesting stuff Matt.

I definitely agree about the Scene Graph, and I have raised this issue with sio2interactive. I can't speak for him, but I believe a scene graph is in the planning stage.

I can relate to what you say about lack of OOP. But fortunately, we can program in C++. I was not aware of that until I got into SIO2, and it's a huge benefit.

No, I didn't do any art, I just did the programming. All the 3D modelling, rendering, animation,... was done by Martin "mattin" Ernst at DOSO (the principal). He has a private homepage at dermattin.com with some more amazing stuff. (If you don't speak German, just follow the third and fifth link on the page.)

And thanks for buying! Positive reviews are greatly appreciated!

Best,
Matt

For those of you who have no idea how the game might look like, we have now a trailer online at YouTube:

Actually I was just talking about SIO2 in the iPhone dev group in a German business platform (Xing). Don't worry, I'm making lots of advertising.

How did you do the elf animation, SIO2 still does not allow skeletal animation...

It's an own key-frame-based format.
