Well I slept past the early store openings today so there goes my chances of getting an iPad 3 today (or for weeks probably). But I think I’ve got the Angry Ninjas iOS Starter Kit retina-fied for the new iPad. It was actually pretty easy, what took a while was upgrading to Lion and installing the latest Xcode to Simulate the iPad 3. So a win for Apple, they finally got me to upgrade.
For those curious, here’s what need updating in the Kit. The Starter Kit builds a universal app, so the Box2D objects all had a non-hd and -hd graphic already. The iPad 1 & 2 were using the non-hd versions (instead of a separate -ipad version). So in upgrading for the iPad 3, I just kept things as is basically. Both Retina iPhone and iPad use the same -hd graphics.
The only thing that really needed work was in places where I was using separate -ipad saved graphics. So now in TheMenu class there’s also -ipad-hd graphics for the buttons that unlock or lock the level sections.
So anyone out there pick up the new iPad today?
