Modal Alert for SpriteBuilder

I should add with blocks

This is release 0.1 and it will have several updates including text entry and sliders. Version 0.2 now offers text input along with slider value input. I updated the link to point to v0.2.

For now, grab the sample SpriteBuilder (w/Xcode) project here:

Troubleshooting MFMailComposeViewController (iOS 8.1)

Wow, so I spent nearly the entire afternoon wild goose hunting a confirmed(1) problem with
seeming to just hang upon presentation; no keyboard pop-up or input but I could cancel/close just fine.

Sorry, here's the fix:

What I found most troubling was that all my recent (64bit) updates for my Cocos2D games have a "Contact Developer" button which of course opens a new message pre-filled out and THEY ALL WORKED FINE. From a coding perspective they were all the same so if one worked and others didn't perhaps I would have rebooted the device sooner. Nope, they all worked fine but my non-Cocos2D (UIKit) app was flat-out broken.


(1)by confirmed I mean I quickly found what sounded like my exact problems on stackoverflow.com and plenty of hits via google.

Install and Maintain Unity 4.6 and Unity 5.0

OS: Mac 10.10 (works on 10.9 and 10.8 too)
Problem: Unity 4.6 and 5.0 installer wants to install into the /Applications "Unity" folder.

I've found it's super easy to keep both my Unity 4.6 and my Unity 5.0 both installed AND updated by understanding the install process and setting up your folders.

Current naming:
Unity 4.6.p1 is named "Unity 4.6"
Unity 5.0.b14 is named "Unity 5.0"

I also replace the Unity 5 beta icons to when they are running and on my dock I can easily tell which version is which.

To maintain: Download the updated Unity and run the installer. Once complete, rename your original folder (like "Unity 5.0.b13) and then rename the "Unity" folder to match the version you downloaded.
