Anyone know whether a zoom feature will be added on ios?

Post by Jerthrwicked » August 7th, 2018, 9:25 pm

I deleted the app for a couple years and it seems the pinch zoom was taken out. For me the game is completely unplayable without the zoom out feature. Any information would be greatly appreeciated. Im too deep into the iphone to switch now, and would love to be able to rebeat my fav small screen game on it

Sorry. The code for the latest 1.10 version was lost, and 1.14 was mostly redone from scratch.

Can you please tell us, how did it work? AFAIK, current engine only supports 50% and 100% zooms - was it a switch between these two on pinch, or did it work some other way?
Thanks.

Thanks for replying so quickly. I had no idea yo guys were still so active. From the bottom of my heart. Ty for all the hard work. In response to your question. There were were three zoom levels. And yes, the switch was through pinching

Im not sure what the percentages were. But the outermost was basically a landscape view. That is the one i feel was necessary for touch screen play. I used it almost exclusively
Thanks again for the reply my friend. Tty soon

Thanks for a kind words.
OK, adding 50% and 25% zoom levels with a pinch gesture should be relatively cheap... I hope.
Will check it out once I have the time.
