Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
I've read varying/conflicting answers on this and I need some definite answers.
I'm currently at the start of developing a turn-based multiplayer game with Game Center. I've been following Ray wenderlich's tutorial, and I've got the player being authenticated in the simulator and the match making viewController popping up, but that's as far as I've got so far.
So first question is, is it possible for my code (via the simulator), and my iPhone to connect/match/find each other? I've read that this is not possible, but I'm sure I saw a video on Youtube some months back, of a guy that managed to get both of them communicating in a turn-based situation using GC. He created a slider, that he changed on his phone, send that back to the simulator which showed the change, and then was able to change it on the simulator which was sent back to the phone.
2nd question is, what aspects of turn-based Game Center functionality can you test with just the simulator? and/or 1 device?
I wasn't imagining things, after a bit of searching, I've found the Youtube video.
Maybe it's something different, but it seems to be possible to match/play from the simulator to the phone (although he's using an iPod Touch) and back again, is that something different?
