How do I open one of the SDK demo apps in Siftulator? Thanks!
Hi! I'm not sure how far have you gone into the process, but I'll try to give you some help. First after installing the SDK, you need to open the demo you want to run with Visual Studio or Mono.
Then you compile and run it. With Siftdev open, you have to make sure that the Sifteo USB dongle is not plugged in. You then double click on Siftulator-00_05_09.jar, which is inside the bin folder of the SDK (folder where you have installed the SDK\bin\Siftulator-00_05_09.jar).
Siftdev detects this as if you had plugged the USB dongle.
Then you click Play on Sifdev and you'll see the demo running on Siftulator.
Hope this helps :)
Ok, thanks... I compiled and ran, but I'm not seeing the .jar file... or bin folder for that matter. Here's what I have in my SDK directory (Sifteo_SDK_mac_1_1_2):
Ok, I am using the Windows SDK, and it seems that the structure is slightly different to the Mac one. What I would assume is that if you open the folder called '/Siftulator 00_05_09 alpha.app' (is it a folder or a file?) you will find Siftulator there and you can run it. If that is a file not a folder, try running 'Siftulator 00_05_09 alpha.app'. I am not very famniliar with Mac so I'm afraid I can't help you much more.
The Siftulator 00_05_09.app is an app--the Siftulator app itself. When I open it, there's a path at the top that presumably should point to my compiled project that I want to run, but within the project folder (I'm just using 01_HelloSifteo), there's no .jar or any other executable file I can point it to. I have a /build folder and a /bin folder, one of which contains a .exe file that looks promising, but there's nothing in either that I can run on my Mac. I dunno... anyone have a Mac?
Nevermind... got it. Instructions for anyone else that might be lost:
Hi Katherine L. Thanks for your 4-step guide. This helped me get the Siftulator running demo apps easily.
Thanks very much. One other thing I had to do was actually Run the project in MonoDevelop too. Otherwise I got "Startup Error... Siftdev could not connect to your app... (Connection refused)."
Works ok now; thanks again.
