New iPhone Game Programming Forum

If you’re in to making games for the iPhone you may want to check out a new forum over on dedicated to discussing iPhone & iPod Game Development.

While you’re there you may want to check out the other forums and resources on the site. There’s a ton of information on game programming for the Mac too.

    Hi-I have created “FotoCube” which may be viewed and played at: (if the 15 minute play trial expires simply close and restart your browser to play again).

    I hired a Java SE programmer to write the code for the web application. I am interested in making “FotoCube” playable on both the iphone and itouch if possible, with fewer attributes if necessary.

    Can Java ME or another Java program be used to accomplish the above? I have received several replies to posts I have made which have referred me to Java ME to do this.

    My Java programmer has told me this might be accomplished using the Macintosh computer and programming using certain softwares.

    Do you think “FotoCube” can be made for the iphone and itouch units?
    Please make any references to me that might be valid. I am also possibly looking for a programmer to work with on this project.

    Thank you,

    Jeff: Writing software for the iPhone requires the use of the language Objective-C along with the Cocoa Touch framework. You will also need to use Apple’s Xcode development tools.

    You should visit for more info.

    NSTimer HELP. When I Build & Go app loads ok but flipToSecond method doesn’t seem to be called. I placed an NSLog in flipToSecond method to check if it is being called NO LUCK.

    -(void) applicationDidFinishLaunching : (UIApplication *) application {

    timer = [NSTimer scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval: 1.0 target:self selector:@selector(flipToSecond:) userInfo:nil repeats: NO]; // change YES to NO


    //define the targetmethod

    – (void) flipToSecond: (NSTimer *) timer {

    NSLog(@”flipToSecond was successful!”);


    Last line in console is:

    Pending breakpoint 1 – “objc_exception_throw” resolved

    Can’t seem to figure it out. Help Please.

    Received HELP from other forums.

    -(void)viewDidLoad {

    [self performSelector: @selector(flipToSecond:) withObject: nil afterDelay: 3.0];

    [super viewDidLoad];

    Used performSelector instead of NSTimer and placed it in viewDidLoad instead of applicationDidFinishLaunching.

    Hope this helps other people.
