Alpha 1.9 Passed Certification

Got the email from Microsoft a few hours ago. Should be available in most marketplaces by the end of today.

This time the “pass” is conditional though, and I have to fix my wicked ways to avoid getting a fail next time :-) Basically I forgot about the requirement (5.2.4.3) that the phone back button has to close the active view and take you one step back. What happens instead, if you get a Dropbox error dialog and press back it will not just close the dialog, but take you all the way back to the main menu.

My bad. Good for Microsoft that they spotted it and still let the app through. Will fix.

    Man the microsoft marketplace sucks :(

    • Posted March 30, 2012 at 18:23 | Permalink | Reply

      The process probably got delayed due to the minor bug that the folks at Microsoft caught for Kaalus (but they still allowed the update to be processed, how nice!). They have a process to go through and it helps keep down the garbage in the Marketplace. They could have denied the update until he fixed it and then it wouldn’t be here until middle of next week probably. =)

      Yep but this will only make sense when multiplayer or at least 3rd person view is added.

        Salut à toi momo6913 :) (6913 = un Rhodanien provençal?) Sympa de constater que d’autre français s’intéresse à SC et au blog de Kaalus, il s’y dit pas mal de choses intéressantes! :)

        (I’m glad to see that there is another French person interested in SC news! There are quite a lots off interesting ones on Kaalus’ blog)

        You don’t automatically see worlds uploaded by others. You only see the contents of your own Dropbox folder. You need to copy other people’s worlds to your Dropbox folder first. This has to be done outside Survivalcraft.
