New Dweller beta - Android test help needed
« on: March 29, 2014, 12:09:06 AM »
Hi guys (if there's still anyone here). I'd like to ask for some help testing the latest Android beta from files.dwellergame.com/beta. The new beta uses OpenGL rendering (ie hardware accelerated). There's bound to be rendering issues, but according to my tests the new Android version is a lot faster, even on tablets. So, please, if you have 5 minutes to spare then install the beta and let me know how it performs on your device.

EDIT: checked /beta and Google Chrome thinks this site is written in Spanish...

Not any faster on the RAZR M. I'll check the tablet.
The new interface is cook but really tiny.

Ok, but is it slow on your Razr M or has Dweller always been fast?

Hi Bjorn!

Long time no erm... read?
 ;)

Anyways, since my Android phone is currently busted (flex replacement gone bad), any chance on having J2ME version updated too?
If you remember the sprites from my avatar, know that you're awesome!

Hey! There should be a new beta available in a few minutes. The new beta fixes the missing HP bars. It also contains an experimental Sell-anywhere feature where you don't need to go to the surface to sell stuff. I've been playing a bit lately and quite frankly the constant up and down between forest and dungeon becomes tedious and it breaks the rythm of the game.

I've added yet another beta (1.24.24). It contains the following changes:

✔ #450 Fix performance issues on tablets performance (was actually solved a few betas ago)
✔ #27 Google Analytics platform
✔ #685 Changed priority of heavy weapons and thieves tools no tags
✔ #577 Make mana clearly visible in the character portrait along with HP feature (was actually solved a few betas ago)

I've added some usage tracking of Dweller using Google Analytics in the Android version. I've done this to get a better understanding of two things: 1) How is Dweller used (most common screens etc) and 2) How many people use Dweller.

Note that the usage tracking is totally anonymous, no data is sent that can identify you as a player.

If no bugs are found in this version I will upload it to Google Play.

Download version here: files.dwellergame.com/beta

Don't know if anyone tried the j2me version but it showed "Out of memory" when chosing character in my phone. The 1.24.23 version worked fine ( not include the missing Hp bar etc...) but since you updated 1.24.24 ver till now it showed "Out of memory"
I don't remember which post that you said you're going to make the iOs version of Dweller and right now I'm hopping it will come true :)

On my Sony Ericsson Xperia MT11i, on Polish translation there are no letters specific for us, like 'ź', 'ą', 'ę', 'ł'. Also words on main menu seems cut by 2-3 pixels.

I have moved from a system font to a bitmap font and forgot to include some characters when I generated the font. I have uploaded a new beta version with the missing character. Thanks for reporting!
