    Someone left a review on the appstore in which they stated that the iCade support is only 50%, that firing doesn't work. Has anyone ran into this issue? I cannot replicate the issue. Everything works fine when I test using my iCade 8bitty.

    Also, version 1.2 update went into review this morning. Update should be live soon if all goes well!

    Heres a recap of whats included:

    Galaxoid verison 1.2

    Bug fixes:
    • Fixed possible crash during Boss Battles
    • Fixed bug when pressing and sliding off of pause button
    • Fixed bug where rate dialog would possibly popup on resume during game

    Feature:
    • Added Auto-Fire feature. Tap to fire, Press and hold for Auto-Fire! (This should appease everyone.)

    Thanks for adding the auto-fire. Works exactly how I was hoping it would. I tested it out on my iphone5 and seems like a great improvement. Sold my iPad 3 recently, but hope to try it on the iPad Air this weekend
     
  3. Yeah, definite problem with icade core, which means probably all other icades except maybe the bitty is working.

    No button fires. Can't get fire at all, but screen touch works.

    If you can make button 7 on icade core (which is basically the same as the original icade) it would be nice.

    The bitty is not really good for development cause it is not made by Ion who makes icade, and the button assignments are really bad.

    Anyway, kinda strange that no button works, but maybe have a couple of buttons register to fire, that is what most devs do for the bitty mapping problem.

    Please make button #7 the fire on the icade core.

    Thanks.

    I'm really diggin this game since the new auto-fire was implemented. The buttons are perfect! I also really like having the option to tap to fire, especially because it fires as fast as I can tap...which I then go back to auto-fire, to rest.

    I broke out my 8-bitty and am having the most fun yet. It plays perfectly on ipad air!
     
  10. Getting icade to work on cores and the original is going well too. It should be done shortly!

  19. Was playing on my icade with my new ipad 4, and it played great. Played alot of icade games last night, and it's cool to see games like this play so well with a joystick.

    Glad to hear you are enjoying it! For what it's worth I'll be submitting Galaxoid to the Google Play store and Samsung App Store this weekend for Android!
