Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video View the template code, part of iOS Game Development: Swift 2.0 and SpriteKit.
- So let's take a look at our SpriteKit template code.…There's actually two places…where we have SpriteKit code here.…First is GameViewController.swift.…Note that it's a subclass of UIViewController.…So these spawn when the application launches.…This is our main ViewController here.…So in a year, we have some code…that creates a new GameScene.…So that's from our GameScene.swift file.…
So it creates a new instance of the GameScene class…with the fileNamed: "GameScene".…Now the file refers to the SpriteKit scene file,…that .sks file.…So then we have an skView created.…It's taking self.view as an SKView.…We have where we can choose to show FPS…which stands for Frames Per Second.…And then we have, whether we want to show…the NodeCount on the screen.…So we can disable that if we'd like to right here.…
For now, I'm now going to change that.…Then we have skView.ignoresSiblingOrder.…Now if you look at the comment here, it says,…"Sprite Kit applies additional optimizations…"to improve rendering performance."…So what this actually means when you're running…
