GKSession - More Game Center Question


Dave
 

Hi All,

I have a Question about GKSession and about turn based games in GC in general.

Firstly, do I *need* to use GKSession in order to create a Turn Based Game? If so, then it looks like I will also have to enable iCloud as a capability of my App?

My other question relates the the Game Center documentation. All I can find online is the XCode HTML based docs, is there a PDF available for GameKit? Trying to learn something as complex as this using HTML is like pulling teeth. I sooooooo wish Apple would supply the PDFs again. Whoever thought the current document system was in any way better for the end user than having a collection of PDFs needs serious physiological help.

All the Best
Dave

HI,

I said GKSession in my last post, I was looking at “GKTurnBasedEventListener” and I’m wondering if I can use “GKTurnBasedMatch” without having to worry about “GKSession” and/or the iCloud.

Cheers
Dave
