Episode 9: Silver Star Stories of Distant Earth


Build: iOS 10 SDK Development, Chapter 5 (part 1)

We’ve built a GUI, and we know how to write code in Swift. How do we bring the two together? We can use the storyboard to connect our UI elements to the source code. We start chapter 5 by wiring the podcast player’s play/pause button to a method that can actually start playing podcast audio. At the end, we also take a brief diversion into dealing with iOS security settings that make it difficult for us to open insecure URLs (plain http:), and what we can do about it for now.


Play: Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch

The oft-remade and re-released Lunar: Silver Star Story is a JRPG that traces its roots all the way back to the Sega CD, over two decades ago. Enhanced with speech, music, and anime cutscenes, we check out what it’s like on iOS

  • Lunar: Silver Star Story Touch on the iOS App Store (note: not yet updated for 64-bit, will not be compatible with future versions of iOS)
  • Lunar: Silver Star Harmony for PSP (Amazon)

Read: Muv-Luv Unlimited: Finale and End Credits

Alternative V and the end of everything.

Watch for where Muv-Luv lead editor @enjoievan direct-messages during my play-through to make me change my final choice point, in order to get the post-credits scene.

BTW, Muv-Luv creator Koki Yoshimune has been replaying Muv-Luv Unlimited on his livestream, and concidentally finished it the same day I did: youtube.com/watch?v=eW88EVBr1yE
