Felgo App & Game Improvements

Improved Connectivity

Get Felgo 2.10.1 now and you can detect the isOnline network connectivity state in your apps and games.

app-isonline-ios
This property lets you quickly check to see whether your app or game is correctly connected to an internet connection.

The update also fixes a possible issue on iOS and macOS that blocked the network access of the application after turning Wifi off and on again.

Improved Tablet Detection

Felgo 2.10.1 updates the diameterinches calculation for GameWindow and App, which provides more accurate tablet detection. The threshold for setting tablet  to <true> also increases to 5.3. This prevents tablet layout detection on bigger phones like the iPhone 7 Plus.

Improved TexturePacker Integration & Spine Fix

TexturePacker lets you manage your game’s spritesheets in a simple way, while also improving your game’s performance. Felgo 2.10.1 resolves a shader issue that caused compilation to fail in previous versions.

You can see a tutorial on adding TexturePacker to your Felgo games here!

Felgo 2.10.1 also fixes OpenGL issues when using Spine on Windows Phone and Win RT platforms.

Felgo Game Network Improvements

The Felgo Game Network is a mobile-backend-as-a-service that adds leaderboards, achievements and high scores to your mobile games. Felgo 2.10.1 improves the service in the following ways:

  • The icons in VPlayGameNetworkView now display correctly when using the component in combination with other icon fonts.
  • WebStorage initializes and synchronizes the current state with Felgo Game Network at first app startup.
