I'm relatively new to SpriteKit and I'm looking to make a game similar to Teeter so I can develop my personal knowledge. After spending a couple of days searching around the web I could not find any tutorials that teach you how to use iPhones motion sensors When the device is tilted) so I gave up and turned to Stack. More specific, I want to really know if there's away to maybe use CoreMotion framework together with SpriteKit as one. If not, what is "the best solution or approach" to developing a game such as Teeter that runs on iOS devices without using third party game engines?
Sure you can use Core Motion:
Here's an example implementation of accelerometer readings - declare an instance variable:
Initial setup as you initialise your scene:
_myMotionManager = [[CMMotionManager alloc] init]; _myMotionManager.accelerometerUpdateInterval = 0.2; // tweak the sensitivity of intervals [_myMotionManager startAccelerometerUpdates];
This is how to gather accelerometer data on the Y axis (there are three: X, Y, Z) - put this in the update method of your Sprite Kit game:
float yAcceleration = _myMotionManager.accelerometerData.acceleration.y; NSLog(@"y axis acceleration data: %f", yAcceleration);
Make sure you
[_myMotionManager stopAccelerometerUpdates]; when they're no longer needed.
If you need gyroscope data, the approach is very similar - here, you'd start gyro updates and use
