Depends on what the license is, but in general terms selling the license/source code is a good idea, the app is very good idea.

I would be interested in this as well, my kids are addicted to these types of games. Be interesting to see if they could use it to come up with something different.

Been following your latest one with interest in the UK ipad charts (think it was up to 9 last time I checked).

Hi there - still planning to do this, just finishing up a couple of projects and then I'll put the template together.

I've had a few e-mails in addition to the post above about the link not working, very strange as it seems to have worked for others - many thanks to those people!

Here's the full link:

To those that have downloaded, as detailed in the read me file you'll need to download the GGData library by Glitch Games and put it in the project folder for it to work - I couldn't really distribute that with the template as they have an option to pay £1 for it on their site.

Hi,
what "Get data from an external config file stored on a server" means?

Do you load levels, logos, answers y texts from a remote server?

can you do some modifications to the app if we pay for that?

Regards.

@jvargas

Hi, currently the app just gets a few settings like whether to show ads & revmob interstitials, and to also download in-house adverts from the server.

But it could easily be extended to get levels, answers, clues etc.

Sure, I could make modifications for an extra charge, we'd just have to agree an hourly rate for the work.

Just two codes left to get it at the discounted price! Also look out for our 'Angry Birds Menu' template that will be released shortly.

Can you tell me which errors you are getting and what version of Corona you're running?

When i run the main.lua file on the simulator, the Otter studios logo screen appears and the screen turns blank (black screen) after that..

I am running the code on corona sdk (Build 2012.894)

Corona Version 2012.894 (2012.8.27)

Hi,

The error is because since build 894, Corona introduced two new APIs - display.pixelHeight and display.pixelWidth in order to deal with the iPhone 5.

Is there a reason you need to use this old build, as 970 is the last public release?

If you really don't want to update, replace the code at lines 63-64 in main.lua with:

1
2
3
4
5
if display.pixelHeight ~= nil then
    if ( "iPhone" == system.getInfo( "model" ) ) and ( display.pixelHeight > 960 ) then _G.model = "I5"; end
    if (display.pixelHeight == 1024 or display.pixelHeight == 2048) then _G.model = "IP"; end
 
end

and line 303 with:

1
2
3
4
5
local isTall = false
 
if display.pixelHeight ~= nil then
        isTall = ( "iPhone" == system.getInfo( "model" ) ) and ( display.pixelHeight > 960 )
end

Hey there,

I'm using the latest daily build and have the issue, I will try your code changes and see if that fixes it. :)
Thanks for the quick response!

@jsdl

I'm trying it now on the latest build and it seems to be ok - what error are you getting in the console when you try to run it?

I do have the GGData.lua in the template folder, but something must be wrong with it. I'm going to try downloading it again and will report back.

Aha - it's fixed now! I apparently had a bad GGData.lua file. The correct one that worked for me is at https://github.com/GlitchGames/GGData/blob/master/corona/GGData.lua

Thanks again :)
