  • WD and IPhone X

    EggToken Echo CampusLifer

    Any plans how to handle the screen of the IPhone X yet? Giving the edges no one would want to look at WD that way.

    Terrible phone design. Ironic that they invented smart phones however their 10 year anniversary version copies key elements from their top 3 competitors.

      I don't think it's of any use to start the old Apple vs. Android discussion again and again. Warlord asked a legit question, let's stick to it please

      MareZ I like both devices I was just expecting a game changer. But agree better to stick to the topic was shocked at the random black void!

      Edit: Didnt realise that it is a specialist social media platform so that aspect is pretty cool.

    Well if IphoneX handle apps that way... then it is how it is... No need to involve PG in that changes i guess.

          The IPhone X is a pure social media phone.

          The black point are the cameras and sensors.

          The screen is blocked there.

          So it covers parts of the game. And movies.

          Solution would be to scale the screen for games to end where the camera begins. But this would result in a compressed view. So you would need to also change the height of the screen and end up with a 4.8" display with black borders.

          As I see it now for those who play games on their phones the IPhone X is the wrong pick.

            Yeah, but the iPhone 7 from blacked out bottom to blacked out top is ~4in.

            So, 4.8in would still be larger screen space (even stopping the game screen at the blacked out space) would still be larger right?

            X has a 5.8" screen. Placing s black SW bezel shouldn't take more than quarter/half an inch. You should be left with more screen than the current Plus versions of iPhone after this. Don't see a problem there, but PG has until November to make it happen.

            Wow, what a garbage phone design. Thanks for sharing XD. I wonder if they'll make another version.

          EggToken Echo could this solution be an option?
          I could imagine that it's fairly easy to just move the buttons on the left and the right side a little bit towards the center, but in battle we would still not see the Rage bar anymore.
          Either the rage bar could also be moved towards the center, or the top left and bottom left corners could just be filled with data such as battery life, wifi, reception and the clock?

            Also the attack button in the rounded corner looks weird. I think they need to scale the game on that phone but how without fucking it up for iPhone 6/7/8 users?

            hmm I think the app is the same for iPhone and iPad so the app must know what kind of device it's running on. Even iPhone 5/5S has a different screen proportion than iPhone 6 and later so it should know if it's running on an iPhone X and adjust appropriately. But PG definitely needs to do some coding there I think...

            One more issue: The new "Home Button"

            The Home Button is now substituted by a swipe gesture from the bottom up (atleast when the iPhone X is vertical).
            Some players already reported problems with the notification center being opened when using socerer or warrior swipe attacks. I believe it could be a hige mess if swiping wrong accidently closes your app lol.

            Any ideas to avoid this?

              lol Warlord, asking the right questions. Actually when you swipe up and hold still, the memory comes up showing you all the apps to switch to or to kill so that hopefully works. But when they solve the swiping to take you home, you might also lose the option to kill the app...
              warmaiden500 I guess if it's all software, the swipe home button gesture might aswell rotate with it just like the notification center does.

              MareZ imagine doing a war run with a sorcerer as clean up or so and accidentally closing the app while swiping...

              I can see the new team descriptions:

              Must do events and wars. Active or very active status. NO IPHONE X USERS!!!!

            Seriously use the IPhone X for your snap chat and animojis lol. WD and other games will be a mess on it either way.

            Screen fucked up and swiping will cause problems.

            My tip for gamers. Buy either an iPad or an IPhone 8 (plus).

              The problem with the iPad is that the screen is much more narrow, making it harder to shoot stuff left and right.
              I find the (promised) additional battery life of the iPhone X very useful for mobile gaming so I really hope PG can come up with something.
              Looking forward to a admin reply. But yeah, I'd definitely wait for a PG statement and some testing before buying the X.

              The iPhone 8 plus has the largest battery capacity ever introduced by Apple. After yesterday's keynote I wanted the X so bad, but giving all the potential problems on gaming plus movies and videos are cut out thanks to the retarded position of the sensors/cameras (it would annoy me every time I'm watching a video, I know me) I'll go for the drama free product with better battery capacity, exactly the same tech specs and gladly miss out on the useless gimmicks for the snap chat freaks like animojis. Plus this thing isn't a 70" OLED TV so no one will see the difference of Super retina to retina HD on a 5.8" screen lmao.

            Hi. I haven't yet thought about this until I saw this thread. I'm sure our UI/UX team will spend some time trying to figure out the best way forward. Thanks for bringing it up; very interesting and definitely enjoyed the photoshopped images to exemplify the challenges.

            War Dragons already works on some android devices with screens of similarly non-rectangular shapes. Assuming we did something sensible on those devices, I'd guess we'd follow that template.

            The "home button" thing is a good point. we currently use all sorts of gestures for our dragon attacks --- it would be super frustrating if even 1 out of 100 times it interprets it as a “home gesture” and exits you out of battle --- losing the battle.

            Every time a new device comes out, we do everything we can to prepare, but unfortunately we don't get access to the new hardware any earlier than the general public. We go to the apple store the night before and wait overnight to make sure we are at the front of the line to get devices as soon as they're available. Then all morning we test for issues, try to fix them as quickly as possible, and send an update to apple for app review. Often there's tons of other developers submitting updates at the same time and it takes a while for the app review team to process our changes. Speaking realistically, we'll do everything we can but there might be some issues for a little while when the device first comes out.

            For sure we'll keep working on it and before the device becomes pervasive we will have tweaked the app to make the experience feel great.
