1.27.1 bugfix release published

Ok, so there are audio bugs.

Unfortunately, Android audio API is a big, messy pool of goo, so it’s not easy to get anything working. Every device behaves differently and a lot of things don’t work as expected in fancy and inventive ways.

The new engine attempts to workaround certain problems. For example some devices leak file handles with every sound created (https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=17995), so that you can only play a fixed number of sounds until your app dies. And about a hundred of similar issues.

Anyway, I think I tried to workaround audio problems too hard.

In 1.27.1 I removed some of these contraptions, so that the audio code is simpler and uses less tricks. While I am sure it will now start failing in yet unknown and wonderful ways, I hope it will work reasonably well across more devices.

1.27.1 is already published and should be available in a couple of hours. Please keep downloading and testing.

Big thanks!

        i like the bag idea maybe make it a requirement. if the game is to be as realistic as he claims then we should only be able to hold two things at once in the start but later make bags to hold more stuff and each bag has a set number of quick slots that are found at the bottom so cotton bag gives 2 quick slots leather and fur give 4 slots and cotton should be able to hold half the amount leather or fur does. plus no bag no inventory

        Eminem this is as old as ostriches, if you want to see the new animals just save up on eggs. I once ended up with two stacks of donkey eggs

      I know – this is because I changed egg ids. Sorry, I hope you can make use of the mooses. I don’t really want to mess with egg ids on top of all the issues.

        It’s fine more of a joke than a worry, and I’m glad you’re not worrying about something so little and useless to fix. Plus the moose will give more food anyways.

    Hey Kaalus, when will it release for amazon kindle fire HDX 8.9?

    I am using BlueStacks App Player and have been enjoying the game a lot, until now. I just got on and couldn’t control my guy with the arrow keys on my keyboard anymore. Although the button setup says “w,s,d,a” there is no response when I try using either those keys or the arrow keys. I’ve also tried the key pad but nothing seems to work except for manually clicking on the screen with the mouse. I know this isn’t originally designed for a pc, but if there’s a fix for this I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

    Kaalus I did find a bug of huge worry though when I play most the time about a fourth of the blocks are invisible. I have a RCA tablet Android version 4.2.2 also, the moose never attack except 1 every 8 times I attack it and thye take half hearts damage to me. I don’t know if that is a bug though.

    • Posted March 25, 2015 at 01:35 | Permalink | Reply

      If you have the view set too high it will make some blocks be invisible, I sent this bug into kaalus a while ago, but he hasn’t addressed it as far as I’m concerned

    I love the fact that when you tap on a campfire with wood logs, planks, stick, or other campfires , it grows. But I wish we could make use of the ash of the burnt out fire. Maybe as fertilizer.

    I am using a Galaxy S4 and also a Nexus 7 (1st Gen). I get this error message at the Main Minu. Clicking OK removes the message and allows me to continue… however, it allways pops up if I leave the main menu and come back.

    When you hit animals or vice versa, the hitting sound is kind of metalic, like coming out from a bad speaker. Is this the mentioned audio bug?

    Ps. I love the new water sound! But can you maybe make it so it will sound like waterfall when the water flows at steef angle? Maybe some water particles where the water meets too. That would be beautiful :)

    Thank you for the update!
    This annoys me: The carpet is useless on slabs.
    I use to build my houses with slabs floor and slabs roof. It is cheaper and looks better then a full block.
    So there is no place to put a carpet on it.
    Can you make it compatible with slabs?
    And putting things on carpets would be great eg. ladder, wicker lamps, crafting table or chests.

    Great update. Please fix community download options. It is my main frustration with the game.

    – Water sounds are much better, but initially still too loud.
    – Game still stutters when many electronics are used even if you have a high end device. Even if you downscale your quality settings. Maybe you can rather have the electronics stutter than give it preference over game play. Please!!! I use a lot!!!

    You can see it in my world: https://www.dropbox.com/l/jlOICMgchtgRvNzwnHz7Qo

    Unfortunately it is too difficult to find it on the community content. It keeps on disappearing because of the faulty rating system and lack of retention. I suppose for many this is not important, but d=frustrates me a lot. Sorry for sounding negative.
