Hi all.
I'd like to know if the code generated by AppGameKit in tier 2 and the AppGameKit player in tier 1 are supported by the first generation iPod touch. If not, what is the iPod/iPhone minimum specs to run it?
Thanks in advance.

Regards.

There was something about that in another thread. Lee was trying to make sure that AppGameKit could support iOS prior to 4.3, but I don't know if that worked.

What version is your iPod running?

The AppGameKit should be running fine on 3rd and 4th gen. Possibly 2nd gen as well. If you haven't picked up anything yet, try and get your hands on at least 3rd gen. Used 3rd and 4th gen ones are out there for decent prices. I got my used 4th gen for $120.

At this point I don't know. I can't find that other thread, and I don't have a 1st gen device to test it on.

Given that 5th gen devices are coming VERY soon, the days of 1st gen device's are likely numbered. I'm sure Apple would like to see them go away so they can sell more of the new stuff.

I can confirm it works with 2nd gen iPod Touch, and I think Lee compiled the interpreter with 3.2 so that it would work with 1st gen as well.

Hey! thanks to all for the replies.
My first generation iPod Touch is out-to-date (3.2.1 I think)... I only use it for some old little games but the touchscreen fault sometimes... maybe it's the moment to buy another iPod more "modern"

Thanks to all!

I also have a first generation iPod and it's a shame to allow it to go to waste. Currently we're building against 3.2 which excludes the operating system 3.1.3. We would need to built an AppGameKit Player specific to this older OS. Once the AppGameKit Player is on App Store we will look at the demand for first generation iPod's in the community, and see what we can do.

I drink tea, and in my spare time I write software.

I have an old ipod using 3.1.3 and I can confirm that it does not work. Just get a crash after the loading screen
