First impressions of first released version

Postby pcraenme » Fri Jul 24, 2015 12:47 pm

I installed the first release version on my Nexus 7 2013 and it is performing much better than the latest beta. On medium graphics setting gameplay is constantly smooth now, even on multiball. No more framedrops. Great work! :) High graphics settings still are too much for a Nexus 7 2013, but on medium settings things look and play great already. Gameplay on my iPad Air is still better, but that is a more powerful and expensive device, so that comparison is unfair. ;)

The only issue I encountered so far is that lights went of for a very short period of time during normal gameplay. Happened two times so far.

Glad to hear the performance is ok now.

Might this have been an unintended nudge producing a tilt warning?

Working fine and smooth on my OnePlus One and Huawei P8 lite.

When new music starts playing, there is a lag for ~20ms.
In the PC Version there was a setting for the Music restart, initially to compensate lag of the blocking spin-up time of the Timeshock!-CD.
Possible settings were:
- Play new song instantly
- Play new song when Ball is not visible
- Play new song when Ball is not moving

Can we have this back? I also liked the few moments of silence and Mechanical-Noises only.

I'll add a feature request. It would be good to get rid of the pause.

Yes, that was probably the case. It may be a bit more sensitive than on my iPad, since I never experienced it there.
