RuniX is now available on Mac App Store

illumineX has been working closely with Alex Cone of CodeFab (NYC) to migrate our suite of consumer software products to the Mac App Store. RuniX, the first game from our Infinity GamePaX Series just hit the App Store, today. 

Our illumineX Infinity GamePaX is a series of several games including BabelBloX, MarbleX, RoX, HoppiX, and HextriX, which were among the very first games to appear on the Mac OS X platform in the early 2000s.  

The games were much loved by fans but the Mac market at the time was pretty small, with fewer than 2 million people using Mac OS X in the early days of the platform. (Many Mac users at the time remained on Mac OS 8 or 9). 

Including our free illumineX Screen Saver PaX, at one time we estimated that 10% of all users of Mac OS X were using some of our software!

The GamePaX continued to run fine on newer versions of Mac OS X over the years, so not much maintenance was required. Then along came a new release which didn't break the games themselves, but broke the software stack that we had built our own e-commerce system on.  We elected to update the GamePaX and migrate it to the Mac App Store. 

If you have products that need updating, we have recent experience!

Contact us today. We would love to help you modernize your iOS and macOS software.

illumineX:  the App Store is our resume. 

You can download RuniX on the Mac App Store.

Blogs: Not dead, yet!

If you're a blogger, you might find this essay, recently shared to YCombinator's Hacker News  from a blog, to be of interest. It's perhaps a little pessimistic, but has some fair observations about the state of affairs in the #blogosphere.  If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own ill

A better sample gitignore file for XCode Cocoa projects on Mac OS X (iPhone, too)

When we switched to git last year (from Subversion) we took a little time and beefed up our ignore file. While working on another project recently, I realized that most of the example .gitignore files for Cocoa/MacOSX/XCode on the web are really not terribly complete, and the results can be very frustrating when you're just getting started with a new repository. Here's a better .gitignore example. Let me know if I left anything out. (I saw a few examples from people who exclude the pattern "profile", but as far as I can tell, that's really not a very good idea. I assume they have a specific use case of some kind which eludes my pondering.) The current version of this file can be found on GitHub: .gitignore for Xcode, Cocoa, Swift, Objective C, Mac OS X, iOS, TV, Watch A better .gitignore for XCode, Cocoa, and Mac OS X git repositories: # Mac OS X Finder and whatnot .DS_Store # Sparkle distribution Private Key (Don't check me in!) dsa_priv.pem # XCode (an
