    A bit late, but can you use a mac virtual machine for this?

      You should be able to. I haven't tried it. But if you can use the app store on your VM, you should be able to use xcode to upload to it.

    After exporting , i can't run on xcode, the game work perfect on buildbox but when i exported i run it on my Iphone via xcode . after the splash screen the game crash .

      I would definitely contact buildbox. Sounds like something went wrong during your export, or there's a bug in the current version.

      Millions are made on successful games. But don't expect to make any on your first game. It's a learning process.

    When I try to test it gives me an error saying: copypng failed with exit code 1
    i checked the folder and the file it was looking for is in there, I'm not sure whats wrong, I followed your instructions and checked the fullscreen box and disabled bitcode. I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure out what's wrong >.

    • Jake in Japan

      The file that is causing the issue is a buildbox splash screen... which i'm not even sure why I have one. How can you charge someone a shit ton of money monthly then still give them an unchangeable (within the app) splashscreen as a default for their projects? >.

    • Hanif Bahari

      Ya, it's trial, so is this possible to I open this file that I've made in trial one in paid one and send it again and update my uploaded game in app store?

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  2 years ago +1

      There could be several reasons... 1) You are using the trial version of Buildbox, which doesn't let you create a custom loading screen... so it's black for 30 seconds, 2) You have the full version of Buildbox, but did not create a loading screen... so while loading it displays black (up to 30 seconds), or 3) The current build of Buildbox may have a bug (if this is the case, contact support@buildbox.com (they've been known to send out another build if you're having a problem)

    I got this error: "Signing for "PZPlayer" requires a development team." What's this?

    • Hanif Bahari

      I haven't registered the device in mac developer, oh my head

    • Hanif Bahari
      Hanif Bahari 2 years ago

      Actually I can't, it was grey before and now it isn't. I have activated my distribution cert in provisioning Profiles, the point is when I wanna open the saved mobile provision it opens in Xcode not in website

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  2 years ago

      You can archive, but you're getting errors? Is it a version conflict, or does it fail on upload? Did you make sure that the bundle IDs are exactly the same? Logged in on the same itunes account?

    • Hanif Bahari
      Hanif Bahari 2 years ago

      What I missed and found in your good was registering for leadership ID, now I can archive the game, that's a good news for a super exhausted newbie ;) but still those errors occure

    • Hanif Bahari

    I cant upload my game because this appears You have no eligible Bundle IDs for iOS apps.

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  2 years ago

      You must first sign up for an Apple Developer account, and set up the bundle through iTunes connect. This tutorial is just on compiling. Details on all of the ins and outs of setting up your iTunes and AD accounts is available in my book: www.packtpub.com/game-development/buildbox-2x-game-development (also available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble)

  • I have a small dick but

    so you need a mac for this?

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  2 years ago

      For iOS, yes you need a Mac (thanks, Apple). Luckily, even an old mac-mini from 2008 will work.

    Can you export the "Simple Game Demo" to an xCode file and send it to me? My email is glaciergamesstudio@gmail.com
    It would mean a lot to me ;)

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  2 years ago

      I don't see how that would violate my Buildbox license as it's just the demo. shoot me an email: ty@audronis.com and we'll work it out. By the way, Buildbox 2 is easier than this. I have a book due out soon: www.packtpub.com/game-development/learning-buildbox-2-game-development

    do you know why it gives me 5 errors? about obj c something with$ signs and code linker

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  3 years ago

      +Omer Turgeman well, based on what I'm seeing here, it mentions HZBannerAd. That would indicate that somewhere you may have banner ads enabled through some sort of provider. I know that 1.2.1 is pretty buggy also. Have you not downloaded the 1.33 update yet? Also, 2.0 is out now, and a lot of compilation bugs have been addressed with it. Honestly, I'm sorry... I wish I knew more about this issue, but it's the first time I've heard of it, so I'm making the best educated guesses I can. That particular error code would only be known for certain by the developers (as they know the names of all their processes in their code). Although I am a coder... I don't work for Buildbox, and don't know all their process names. I would seriously consider hitting up the Buildbox forums and asking Andy for help. He's on the team over there, and should be able to help.

      +Ty Audronis and what do you mean advertisement implementation?

    • OT's
      OT's 3 years ago

      +Ty Audronis yeah its the same promblem . I mean someone wrote it allready here you know what to do?

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  3 years ago

      +Omer Turgeman No idea off the top of my head. Can you send me (via google+ or private message) what errors you're getting? It's a little non-specific. Is this the same problem from 3 months ago? If so, see my response there... it seemed like a problem with your advertisement implementation. If you're on the Buildbox forums, I highly suggest posting this problem there. But if you do message me, please include your Buildbox version, the specific errors, your xCode version, what stage you're getting this error (compiling, or uploading, etc), and the ad provider(s) you're using.

      what is xcode version?

    • Ty Audronis
      Ty Audronis  3 years ago

      +SayHand Lee You are correct. I was also stuck in processing hell, hence the time I had to do the video (think I say that in the beginning somewhere). That's really on Apple as the Android platforms pretty much go instantaneously. I was really addressing how to get xCode to compile it due to a vacuum of knowledge in that area, not how to become an Apple developer, nor the approval process. I do sympathize with you on how difficult the entire Apple process is, hence why I'm currently writing a book on how to make and distribute games using Buildbox 2. A video on the whole process would be extremely long. Look for the book soon on Amazon, PACKT, O'Reilly and Barnes & Noble. Still in editorial and preparing for the presses. I hope it will help.

    • Alex and the monsters
