Hi all,

I comment that behaviour on some post before, but i have done a complete set of test now.
When i left an GLBasic application on iPhone running and set iPod / iPhone to stand by (pressing shutdown button for a second), when i come to iPod / iPhone again, and wake up, my application seems to reload, but i found previous 'thread' running on background.
In my case, my game menu load again (like first time), but in the background i can play the game i was playing previously, so its like i have 2 'threads' running at once (yep i know i can't play 2 same app on iPhone), but only respond to touch first.

I have tested and found the same behaviour on iPod 1G (jailbreaked), iPod 2G (not jailbreaked), iPhone 3G (not jailbreaked).
Rest of applications works without problems after sleep (starting on the point they were sleeped), all app i have tested (about 30), have this behaviour, so i can say this must be the 'standar' behaviour.

I am really worried about this, cause in about 1 week, i will send my app to Apple Reviews, and i am worried they rejected my app cause this.

Thanks in advance,


Hi all,

I am near to finish my first game for iPhone platform using glbasic, and all i have to say is 'GLBasic is Amazing!'.
I am currently doing my 'More Games' button, which will open a web browser with a webpage.

Anyone knows how to do this?

Thanks in advance,

GLBasic - en / New PlatformInfo Parameter
« on: 2009-Sep-03 »
Hi all.

I was waiting impaciently for the new command Parameter of PlatformInfo 'Document', which have the ability to save files on iPhone (I need mainly to save some settings).
Its seems to work pretty well (Althought i haven't tested on real device yet, it works wells on glbasic).
But i discover while i was playing around that files creates using openfile command (and write command), beggins always with '0', ie. i have created a data file name settings.dat and glbasic creates 0settings.dat file.
I don't care so much about it, but i am a little worry if that behaviour will be change in a future (creating settings.dat without extra character), because the applications done before the change can be crash (well i can code to find new file, but player will lose his game, settings, progress etc).

Best Regards, fjsantos.

Hi all.

I have been using glbasic last few weeks and as professional developer i found this tool extremelly useful to coding games (developing times decreases incredibly), so i will buy soon.
But i have some questions yet, referring iPhone coding.

Data Persistence
That is my first doubt, because, i don't know if i can use as usual dat files saves on iPhone / iTouch for store some data persistence (i.e. saved scores or settings). I don't know if i will find some permissions problems or anything else, or if i need to store persistence data on iPhone in other way.

Call or Stand By
Another question is where to include code, for saving data when user put iPhone to StandBy, or close application, or if any call is made while user is using my software. I would like to save data before application shutdown.

Memory Allocation
I am worried about memory, because i can't use debugging or optimizer tools from xcode, and i know that is a main problem when coding for iPhone (and main problem when trying to certificate your application for market).

Backward Compatibility
Yep, i know that GLBasic is compatible with 3.0 version of iPhone, but i wonder if this compatibility is backwards too (i suppuse yes).

Well, i thinks that's all my doubts.
Thanks in advance and great job with GLBasic.
