Day 2: Create The Project Files
Development time: 1 hour
I created a new project in Eclipse and imported all of the source files into it. The organization of the project was fairly flat so I created a few new folders: "scenes", "libraries", "images" and "sounds". All original images, scenes and sounds were moved to the appropriate folders.
I also copied all of the icon files from Spiky Swim over to this project as an easy way to remember all of the new icon sizes I would need to create. (You could also read Apple's docs and Google's docs). Apparently this is about to be "the old way" of putting icons into a project, so if you're a Corona developer reading this, you will also want to read: https://docs.coronalabs.com/guide/distribution/xcAssets/index.html
I created a file "libraries/runtime.lua" and moved the sound loading and sounds playing code into that file. I'll use runtime.lua as a way to hold game globals as explained in this post about avoiding global vars. The game was loaded into the simulator again to make sure it still ran.
