A post was split to a new topic: Using the Gyroscope?

Hello, there!
I made a game with cocos creator. But I can’t build the game project for ipad or iphone.
Why? And can i import cocos creator project to cocos-2D project?
And i’m using javascript and I can’t convert to c++ in cocos creator.
If you have any ways, please help me.
Thank you for my reply.

@WonderGamedesigner Cocos Creator is javascript only. There is a plugin to export to c++ but it is for UI purposes not development.

Is it possible to export from Creator to Cocos2d-X(RC0) with Mental support?

I don’t think the 2 products have converged just yet.

I find error message when I compile in cocos creator.
Like as:
Simulator: AL lib: (EE) ALCmmdevPlayback_open: Device init failed: 0x80070490
I don’t know what it is mean?
Please help me in a short time.
Thank you for your reply.

Hello everyone…

First of all, It could be nice to put such project a little road map inside your website at

What I really like to see in the next version:

  1. Disable the internal folder or make an option in the settings to hide it.
    We are all humans and we some times make mistakes. I accidentally dragged a file or maybe folder and the entire engine stopped working. I had to re-install the engine. Please make an option to hide the core files from the assets explorer.
  2. Currently it is very difficult to make Tween effects programatically (in ts).
    For example, I want to make the following formula to work as easing:
return t<.5 ? 2*t*t : -1+(4-2*t)*t
// where 't' is the time.

However, your code is expecting to receive percentage instead of number between -1 to 1.

  1. I want to see the final result of the material system.
  2. I want more information (please add more docs) about how to create custom components with the vue.js library. Please add an example of a more complex situation that explains for example how to create a list of a custom made object with color, width and size (etc…).
    This would be extremely useful because every time I want to test something I need to exit cocos and open my project again.
  3. Annoying bug fix: Sometimes, when I am changing or modifying my code, the view port of cocos is getting crazy. For example, when I am selecting a node with a size then the view port is making a selection border around it. When I am changing my code the entire border that surrounds the node changes its position to a different location. To fix this I need to zoom out and than zoom in again.
  4. I hope to see more 3D features (like particles?).
  5. Request: can you please add the ability to shoot nodes instead of sprite frames as particles?
    The things that we can do in this case is incredible! For example: I am creating a sprite node with animation that changes the sprite frames. When the particle shoots the sprite node, the node on load is also triggering the animation of that node so we can now shoot a sprite frame animations as particles. BTW, pixi, phaser, game maker and even the damn construct 3 can do that!
  6. Request: Add a magnet tool. For example, I want to drag a node in steps while attaching it to the view port grid. Another example: I have 2 node. I want to drag one of them and so they touch each other completely. Lots of engines do that while pressing CTRL + mouse drag.

Thanks a lot for your efforts by bringing us such a good game engine…

Any ideas?

We can ask @jare to help with this.

Do you have any more information about this from Apple?

I got this error while using v2.1.2 but after upgrade it to v2.1.3 then clean the build dir using xcode it works. I also re archive the build too.
