    I'd prefer it via email please.

    A big discussion of all the things wrong with the game is something I could do without once it's all fixed and the game ships tbh. :)

    /me considers himself told off :)

    Don't worry - will email from now on as well. Although - I think your honesty and quick responses on here is far more important - the brilliance of your game will shine through no matter what we discuss in this thread.

    Once you release the game - you can create a new thread on here with images, videos etc - so this thread can die.

    I must concur with Matt about the ads. They appear on the bottom of the screen and almost fully cover the button when you are trying to create new troops.
    I noticed someone else in this forum has already commented about the controls being a bit fiddly when selecting units. Although i havnt found this a huge issue, have you looked into adding a "pinch to zoom" feature. It would certainly add a new dimension to the game and help those with smaller screens on their mobiles.
    Really enjoying the game. Cant wait for the first update :)

    Agree with Matt too. Having the discussion on here allows people to see your responses. Its refreshing to get feedback so fast and frequent - something that doesnt happen enough these days.

    Looks like I'm resigned to it regardless, lol :)

    Pinch to zoom is already in, but I it's on a define that only works on iOS and is a blatant overlook on our part, as is the quit button. (You can rotate the map by swirling two fingers also)

    The camera starting too high is an easy fix.

    The adverts we need to think about some more. We're new to ad-supported games and are still working out the kinks.

    I know you would like to keep it through email, but the beta will not install on my Droid X. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem.

    Pinch zoom for definite, along with better intial camera heights.

    Droid X is becoming a bit of a nightmare for us. We can't buy em here in the UK either. Hopefully some debugging data we're building into the next Beta will reveal all.

    Pinch zooming would be a great way to fix the sometimes fiddly unit/space selection.

    Agree with the others - it won't harm your reputation at all discussing issues here in the forums, if anything it helps your reputation because we can see a responsive dev who cares about their product, also we all understand its a beta - nobody is going to hold problems in a beta against you.

    Rubicon. Can I suggest you guys give up sleep to get the next beta out? I've played all 5 levels and I'm desperate to play more :)

    Noticed you guys leave messages late on here before - all I can say is if it's due to working on the android version - thanks very much :)

    Has become my favourite game on Android! (With Drop 7 in second place and Angry Birds third)

    The game sounds superb, but whenever I try to play no matter what I have the settings at the screen is really dark and unplayable :(. This is when playing on the Droid 3

    Same on Droid X. I took a screenshot using Drocap2 and e-mailed it to Paul. Wish I had more time to figure out the game play. I'm at work and everytime my boss walks by I have my phone in my hand goofing off :eek:

    This looks like an issue with the texture maps. These Droid phones has the PVR format which isn't supported on any of our own phones so of course it chose not to work!

    We do have one on order though, so this will get nipped in the bud in short order. Thanks guys.

    So I saw the news on DroidGamers.
    But would it work on ARMv6 devices?

    I thin it should do, but I'm not the low level guy on this. If you could mail me your details and get on the Beta, we can find out together. :)

    All right, I'll send an email to sighup for beta test.
    I'm not expecting much though, this game looks demanding, and ARMv6 devices are weak...:(

    If you or anyone else here is Jeff Mayer, this is the reason you think I'm not getting back to you... (I blocked the IP numbers)

    It's my IP address, but we have no open relays or anything so god knows why this is happening!
