For the sake of clarity, this is how I have my Xcode folders installed:
Mac HD / Developer / Applications / Xcode v325
Mac HD / Xcode4 ƒ
I'm hoping that it will be possible to install the Custom Templates folder in one location and have both Xcode versions access them from there. I also hope there will not be a conflict because I ofter have both Xcode versions open at the same time.
Eventually, I hope to just run off of Xcode 4, but at the moment, I am not comfortable doing that.
Your custom project templates for Xcode 3.2 should be in *~/Library/Application Support/Developer/Shared/Xcode*, following the same layout as the regular templates in /Developer/Library/Xcode/. Xcode 4 uses ~/Library/Developer/Xcode/Templates for the custom templates, but making them is quite a bit different - you might check out this article.
Xcode 4 changed the templates so you can't use the same set of templates in both Xcode 3.2 and Xcode 4. You will have to modify your old templates to work with Xcode 4.
As far as installing custom templates, the Method One you mentioned is the location to store custom templates for Xcode 4. Method Two is the location to store custom templates for Xcode 3.
I got impatient and used the terminal line(s) as directed at cocos2D and it worked. I have no idea where it placed the new templates but all templates show up in the New Project pan and work fine as well. I still get three errors using Xcode v325, but that is no the end of the planet for me. Earlier I was getting way over a hundred errors, but now at least, the files are all in black font.
I much prefer Xcode 4 and it compiled the same template with NO errors.
Thanks for the GREAT link. I have that BM'ed and will read it ASAP. Will it ever end? Probably not.
I appreciate the help.
