Would it at all be possible to make Solar2D backwards compatible with Mac Mojave so we would not need to upgrade to Catalina? I imagine I am not the only one avoiding this upgrade due to the myriad issues and problems it would create (I actually upgraded and had to downgrade).
Ah… So simulator works, you can’t build for iOS, right?
This is different issue. I can try to include iOS 11.3.1 templates into the build, but beware, that if you’re using ads in your apps, you may “have a bad time” starting from iOS 14, since it has new ad tracking requirements, which are possible only with iOS 14 SDK. I hope to rebuild all ad plugins by january to require this framework available only on iOS SDK 14+
Also, what issues do you have with Catalina? It is almost like 2 versions old already, released over a year ago, soon to be “past version” as well, with Big Sur, which have even more drastic changes.
Correct. It’s about building for iOS.
I am not using ads so that is no issue.
My issues with Catalina are not related to Solar2D but to other applications like Adobe Creative Suite. I know eventually I’ll have to upgrade but I’ll postpone it as long as I can.
Unfortunately I am getting the errors in the screen shots. I checked and I only have one version of Xcode installed and it is version 11.13.1 so I don’t know why I can’t select iOS 13.3 as the target or why Solar2D thinks I have Xcode 11.13.2.
This same error occurs with every version going back to 3579 or 3578. With version 3577 I do not get it and have the option to select iOS 13.3 (this is the only option).
I even ran sudo xcode-select -r but still the same error.
If I use 11.13 does that mean Metal is not supported, and consequently I will still have the black flash in iOS when bringing the app to the foreground?
May be I made a typo and it doesn’t work. But that’s weird. Solar2D 3626 has templates for iOS13.2.
Also, Xcode version, iOS version and iOS SDK version are different versions. Basically iOS Simulator is tied to iOS version. Xcode updates not always come with SDK update, which is used to build apps.
Try editing /Applications/Corona-3626/Corona Simulator.app/Contents/Resources/iOS-SDKs.json, may be change last entry "xcodeVersion": "13.3" to 13.2.
May be it would help, because templates are there /Applications/Corona-3626/Corona Simulator.app/Contents/Resources/iostemplate
