Blackwell Legacy iOS crashes constantly
« on: November 04, 2014, 04:51:12 AM »
Hi, Blackwell Legacy crashes every time after 2-3 minutes of playtime on my iPad. I use third generation iPad and iOS 8.1. I did not have this problem before updating the iOS. Do you have any ideas? Many thanks.

I'm not sure of the details myself, but Janet (who made the ports) has told me she wanted to recompile all our games with the new version of XCODE to fix any compatibility problems that would inevitably arise. She is off this week for personal reasons, but she is going to try and get to this next week. Sorry about that.

Hi, Unbound has the exact same problem too.

Any news regarding the iOS updates?

Thank you

Just registered to ping this thread and say it's happening to me too. Blackwell Legacy on iPad is my first experience of any of your games and was really getting in to it, but now the crashes have started for me. Started when visiting Susan in the hospital. I can only play for a few minutes before the game just exits.

I think I know what causes this and will get to it as soon as possible. Sorry.

Hi,

Any news regarding the iOS updates? Actual versions of the games do not run correctly since last september's iOS 8 update.

Many thanks. And happy new year!

We're still aware. Janet's been working on this full time since we became aware of it. Trying to figure this problem out is basically her job right now. It's no small task, since huge swathes of the port need to be completely be re-written. The upside is that once she sorts it out, we'll have Deception and Epiphany all ready in the wings ready to go!

Thanks for the updates, Dave and Janet.

Is there any chance you could share more technically what's up and why such a large change is needed?

This question isn't to seek justification for the delay, I'm just a curious software developer myself, and any insight into this would be interesting. If not, that's fine too. Good luck!

The updates on XCode mean that the CMake files for the libraries no longer work and it is proving tricky to fix them.
