How to open the Project Files in xCode?

How to open the Project Files in xCode to start working on it directly (as if it was mine). I can't open it while i choose menu > open (which file should i choose to open the whole project??)

Thanks

If you have download the Project Files, there should be a file with the extension ".xcodeproj". If you open that with Xcode (you should even be able to just double click it in Finder) then the whole project will open up as if you had followed from the start and created it with the videos.

Hope this helps,

Andy.

If you downloaded the files using chrome, the file you downloaded would be at the bottom of the chrome window. Since it's a zip file, click on it's name and a finder window will open up showing the zip files unzipped to a folder having the same name as the zip file without the zip extension.

From there, click on that folder, which will open up a subfolder, and then another subfolder, etc. Keep clicking until you see the FunFacts folder... there should also see the file with .xcodeproj extension. If you don't see it, then you need to open up the FunFacts folder to see it....select it once you see it.

Click here to get Chrome from Google to download and open file<--

Still can't open it on a PC. The files are .py and I'm not sure how to open them

hmm.. .py file suggest that you're working with Python script files. Now any text editor(e.g. textpad, jCreator, ...the Standard Editor in Xcode maybe) can be used to create them, but you'll need a Python Interpreter to read them.

Below are some links that can help you obtain an interpreter 4 free.
