I've a question about the minimum configuration for a Mac to create some IPhone games.
I never used a Mac, so I'm completly new in this domain
After some search, I found that the minimum to develop application for IPhone/IPad is Mac OS X, Snow Leopard.
I have found a Mac Mini with this configuration (and Snow Leopard installed) :
Apple Mac Mini, Intel Core Duo
Proc : 1.83GHz
Memory : 2 Go RAM
Hard Drive : 80 Go disque
Someone can confirm that this environnement can works to developp on IPhone (using orx for sure ^^) ?
It will be very slow or it will be acceptable ?
For those that try orx on IPhone, witch mac do you have ? Someone tried Hackintosh or Vmware successully ? (I don't want to spend a lot of time for that, so I think I prefer buy a Mac)
Thanks for your help !
Xcode might be a little slow with only 2GB RAM. On the other hand, I use Xcode with 4GB RAM and it's still slow because it's a crap user interface.
Seriously, though, that should be fine. The VMware option would probably also work fine as long as you don't have a problem with the USB drivers (when using Xcode to debug the app on a physical device).
Finally, I bought a Mac Mini, Core 2 Duo, 8Go Ram. It was not too expensive.
I think it will be ok ! I didn't try to compile orx & game yet, but it will be soon
Don't want to take time to solve bad problems
