The Ultimote Distribution files are the library files to accompany the Ultimote app from the app store. Currently only downloading the library files will allow you to test the macro playback functionality of Ultimote. The project files included there were not intended to be compiled and installed on devices as these were made to run on the simulator with the Ultimote app connecting to them. The autoconnect button refers to the Ultimote app from the store.
It appears from your questions you are trying to create a multiplayer game, correct? Ultimote was designed for transmitting real time device only events (etc gyroscope, accelerometer, multitouch) to the simulator, not device to device. However, we have another third party tool in the works (will be out in a day or two) that will be exactly what you are looking for. This new tool will feature:
-Automatic network discovery (much like ultimote), ie no need to enter in IPs/Ports
-Client/Server model with multiple clients/servers on the same network
-High speed UDP for time critical events with different levels of importance (acknowledgments)
-Ability to transfer files for maps and such. We will try to do this in UDP but may end up using TCP
-Ability to choose from multiple servers on the same network
Am I missing something? Do I need to install your app from the store on my device to make this work?
If you want to stream hardware events from the device to the simulator and record macros then you need to install the app from the app store.
However, if you just want to make a multiplayer game.
then we ask you wait a day or two for our new tool (Corona Multiplayer, Corona LAN, name not decided yet)
I have installed your Air Hockey game from the app store and played in wireless mode with another iPad. Very cool.
The air hockey demo you see on our youtube video is a sample game done by Ansca. We just used it to show how easy it is to incorporate Ultimote into existing projects. Could you send us the app store link? The game is not ours but it sounds interesting.
Thank you and sorry for the misunderstanding,
