coco2d iphone extensions 0.1 overview


Here’s a list of what’s in the project so far as listed on the Github pag and available for iOS devices:

  • CCMenuAdvanced – CCMenu subclass with additional features: relativeAnchor, more align options, priority property, scrolling with swipe/trackpad/mousewheel
  • CCMenuItemSpriteIndependent CCMenuItemSprite Subclass, that doesnt add normal/selected/disabled images (sprites) as children. It retains them and delegates rect & convertToNodeSpace: methods to normalImage_. So it’s possible to use CCSpriteBatchNode & add position sprites of menuItem anyway you want.
  • CCVideoPlayer – Simple Video Player for Cocos2D apps.CCBigImage – Dynamic Tiled Node for holding Large Images.
  • CCSlider – Little Slider Control to allow the user to set the music/sfx/etc level in the range of 0.0f to 1.0f.
  • CCSendMessages – CCActionInstant subclass, that is more flexible than other CCActions that run functions. Can be used in many cases as blocks replacement.
  • CCScrollLayer – CCLayer subclass that lets you pass-in an array of layers and it will then create a smooth scroller. Complete with the “snapping” effect.
  • FilesDownloader – Downloader for a group of files with shared source path.

Ripples

This example is from Birkenmose, a member of the Cocos2D forum. They have posted a “RippleSprite” class which works very much like a CCSPrite and with just a few lines of code you can add this ripple effect to an image.


Birkenmose has also done an excellent job of explaining everything that is going on in the code with his comments which is of great help.

How To Integrate Cocos2D and UIKit | Ray Wenderlich

How To Integrate Cocos2D and UIKit | Ray Wenderlich | iPhone and iPad development | Scoop.it

Cocos2D is a great framework, but sometimes it’s handy to implement some of your game with UIKit.


For example, it’s often useful to design your main menu, settings pages, and the like with UIKit and just use Cocos2D for your main game logic.

You also might find it handy to use UIKit controls on top of a Cocos2D scene – such as text fields, buttons, tab bars, or ad views.


In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to do exactly like this! We’ll take a simple Cocos2D app and modify it to use UIKit for the main menu and an about page, and overlay some UIKit controls on top.
