So I have some trouble understand how this all works when I use the sprite/texture in a class and then use the sprite for the object (the class) in the GameScene.
In the tutorial, all that happens is you create a CCSprite * and use the spriteWithFile function.
CCSprite *player = CCSprite::spriteWithFile("Player.png",
CCRectMake(0, 0, 27, 40) );
player->setPosition( ccp(player->getContentSize().width/2, winSize.height/2) );
But when I have my own class with a CCSprite * in the private portion, and am trying to set the sprite with the function above, I don’t think it works. Mainly because when I try to set the position of my CCSprite , I get the EXC_BAD_ACCESS error. This indicates that the pointer is faulty.
The way I’ve alleviated it before is I called new on it. But I don’t understand why I need to call new on this CCSprite but not the one in the tutorial?
For instance, this is my code (I have an array of 6 CCSprite ’s and this is just setting the values for one of those CCSprite):
I could call new for the CCSprite , but I’d rather not have to do that every time I want to make a CCSprite in a class. If this is not possible, then I will, but I’d just rather not.
Also, speaking of the CCSprite *’s in the tutorial… when the game does the init() function and calls this~~>addChild, do I need to do this also in the GameScene’s init for my game except more using the object with the CCSprite *, like this~~>addChild(theObject->GetSprite()) or do I do the addChild in the object’s constructor/init function?
Any information would be great! Thanks!
