    @BlackCloakGS, how soon will we see Device Locale and Language Attributes?

    This is pressing given the new iAP system.

    My game still crashes if I tap twice on the X to close ads between scenes. I'd consider that a game breaking bug.

  • HopscotchHopscotch Posts: 2,782Member, PRO

    Regarding the pressing Country Code and Language settings for iAPs, I dug this up from September.

    @stevej said:
    After discussing this with the team, we're going to add attributes for: country code, OS being used, and OS version being used. This may come out as a patch to 0.12 if we can't get it out for the initial release.

    Please give us a an estimate.

    The changes for 64 bit won't be merged into the 0.13 nightly build until we've got them stable on 0.12.

    Unfortunately that's been pushed to the 0.13 release.

    Also, two of my PNG assets are uncharacteristically darkened when I play on my device. Also, one of my music assets refuses to play on device.

    I'm pretty sure these problems were absent in the last release candidate but present in the release candidate before that.

    That being said, there was another visual glitch on my device in the last two release candidates that was harder to explain. It's finally gone.

    Am I the only one experiencing things like this?

  • HopscotchHopscotch Posts: 2,782Member, PRO

    @silverduck, I find that in ca. one out of 6 builds there are artifacts on the edges, or repeating dots in the images. I then rebuild the project and it sorts it out.

    Are these images png24 with transparency?

    If not they should be.

    Do they contain only black or white pixel data (i.e. image is white/grey/black graphics only)?

    If so add one pixel of color and it should render correctly in GS.

    Thank you. You're absolutely right. These images are completely grey in color. I'll check to make sure they're PNG-24 and add a pixel of faint color when I get the chance. That seems like such a crazy solution but it kinda makes sense haha.

    @silverduck said:

    I think what happens is during the image conversion process on the server side it detects the image has only greyscale and changes the png accordingly in an attempt to optimize it automatically.

    My guess would be that GS is using some 3rd party software to handle image conversion and this is an effect from that.

    I'm in the process of publishing a new game; should I hold off on doing so until Monday?

  • HopscotchHopscotch Posts: 2,782Member, PRO

    @Zenithax, this version seems fine to publish with, I have 4 in review myself. Do an adhoc test, and if it runs fine then publish.

    As there don't seems to be any real problems reported so far, this will most likely be the same codebase as comes out on Monday.

  • silverducksilverduck Posts: 20Member, PRO

    Thanks again for the advice about adding a single colored pixel. That seemed to work just dandy.

    Now my only issue is why one of my music tracks refuses to play ever (and I'm not sure but other tracks might be finicky). There's nothing special about this track that sets it apart from others in the project and again, this is only when playing on my device. Everything is kosher in the editor.

    Also, tapping multiple times to close interstitial ads 100% guarantees a crash, but that's just out of my hands.

    Having two issues seen in the game we are making with RC 0.12.20

    White default image on some of our actors. Transparent png:

    Seen it on iPad air and iPhone 6 both iOs 8.1.2
    Not seen on iPhone 5 iOs 7.1.1 and iPad 2 running iOs 8.0.2

    Our music file are not playing in ad hoc version. Using .m4a set as play music in GS. Music works and plays in creator and in viewer.

    I have submitted a bug report.

  • HopscotchHopscotch Posts: 2,782Member, PRO

    @skott, do you get the image problems consistently? Or does a rebuild fix it sometimes?

    I have seen the same intermittently, but not found a pattern. It seems more to be a load issue during the generation process on the GS server. Rebuilding the package nearly always fixes it, although it may reappear on subsequent builds.

    I too have seen this intermittently. I thought I was going crazy and accidently deleted some images from my project so they showed up as white boxes. But this doesn't seem to be the case. It does seem to get fixed on a rebuild. Wonder if it is server side.

    Edit: this isn't just on RC for me. Even stable does this from time to time. Which again makes me think server side image issue.

    hey everyone. I have a doubt. I want to add chartboost ads to my game, i am developing my game using windows creator 0.10.4. I read that one should be using a gamesalad version more than 11 to be able to integrate chartboost? Is it so? Need your help.
    thank you!

    Still crashes when trying to get a screen shot.

    Haven't tried a rebuild, will try.. It "feels" like it's a bug in the build process?.. Kind of glad it's not only me seeing it, then there is a chance of reproducing it and find the bug.

  • LumpAppsLumpApps Posts: 2,868Member

    Can I publish today without 64 bit support? There is no stable version of GameSalad supporting that now?
