Amazon passed 1.23

Amazon passed 1.23 this morning. I think the demo is already in the app store, the full version was passed a few hours later, so may not yet be available.

Still waiting for Apple and Microsoft. Will let you know!

    There are several tutorials on youtube, and on the lefora forums on making them.

    Also, Kaalus, in case you didn’t see my last post, what software program are you using to make this game? I’m trying to get into game development myself for iOS platform, so I am just trying to get familiar with different engines and such.

      Oh, btw, Apple may not release this update. They tend to have rules regarding major engine changes, or complete engine changes.

    Hey, Kaalus? The world generator is a little weird. I spawned in the middle of the ocean on a single sand block… either the crew REALLY hates the player or there’s something wrong.

    Can kindle fire 6 gigabytes handle maximum view distance in the new update?

    • Posted November 1, 2013 at 02:27 | Permalink | Reply

      Be aware that larger visibility ranges need more memory and more CPU/GPU power. A 256MB device (e.g. iPod Touch 4, Nokia Lumia 710) cannot really handle more than what is in 1.22. If you set it higher, the game will exhaust the memory and crash within seconds, or maybe minutes if you’re lucky.

      Most 512MB devices (e.g. iPhone 4S, Nokia Lumia 800, older Android phones) can manage up to 2x visibility of 1.22. For even larger distances, you need 1GB, or more.

      In general, memory requirements increase as a square of the viewing distance. Two times further = four times more memory!

      With 3x view distance I had my Nexus 4 crash once during testing, even though it has 2GB. Therefore I decided to take that option out (as we don’t have 4GB phones yet!) and set the limit at 2.5x. The above screenshot was taken at that setting.

      Because Survivalcraft is a 32bit process, even on a PC loaded with RAM there is per-process limit of 2GB. Through testing I found that this is allows view range of 4x. On the phones the situation is different, even though they may also have 2GB of RAM. But they must keep the OS and all GPU assets in that memory – PC has to keep only the game process there.

    and my KFHD decides to die right when the update comes out first. Hopefully I can get a new one off the warranty. But today, all I can do is play it on my iphone.

    Kaalus, is the update for Windows phones is submitted to Windows store yet? If it was already submitted I just hope it’ll published really soon. Thanks for your hardwork man, and I will be really looking forward to play local multiplayer with my nephews (cause actually they’re responsible for my addiction to sand box games).

    Hey Kaalus.

    I haven’t seen this bug report so I’ll post it here as well as in the forum.

    While using the 4-Bit-Counter and it’s overflow.
    I was creating a 2 displayed counter to count from 00 to FF and also back to 00 from FF.

    The second 4-bit-counter, X0 has AND-gates on both the + and – input.
    The overflow of the first, 0X ,connected to both the AND-gates.
    Two buttons on the first 4-b-counter, 0X, for + and – are respectively connected to their correspondng AND-gates on the second counter.

    So if there would be an overflow pressing the +button, they together, with the AND-gate, would get two signals from the +button and the overflow, and would increase the second counter with 1.
    And if there would be an overflow pressing the -button counting down, F to 0, the second counter would receive an signal on the -side.

    Thing is if the first counter counts down from F to E the overflow also gives a signal. ???

    Thought you should know.
    Regards Cursedth.

    ps: Are there still admins and moderators for the Forum?
    If you need people just give me a holler!!
