App build with Smart Basic and Swift?

Post by tampadancing » Mon Oct 01, 2018 10:40 am

I have written a turn based game using Smart Basic that requires the iPad to be handed from player to player for each player to take their turn. It was written as a "proof of concept" for the game idea. I am satisfied with the game play, but it will never fly as a "pass the ipad" game. Now I would like to develop it to a turn based game over the internet. Apple has game play modules that (supposedly) handle a great deal of the mechanics needed for turn based internet play.

Is it possible to utilize my Smart Basic program and add Swift components and Swift code using Xcode to develop a hybrid built app, or do I need to do a total program rewrite in Swift or C to utilize the Apple turn based play modules?
I know this isn't the forum for "how" to do it, I just want to know if you believe whether it is possible (and easier than total rewrite).

Finally, if there is anyone on Smart Basic forum that has done this, I would love to hear from you.

Thank you!

I have no exact answer, but I can comment:

Although you can use Xcode project with smart BASIC in any way you like (add or remove something in Xcode project if you have good experience in Xcode programming), but there is no interaction between smart BASIC program and any stuff you add to Xcode project by yourself.
