    i just updated my iphone 6 last night and now face an annoying issue with unreal engine 3 based games. Frame rate, audio, and stability issues plague my games. I have tested Infinity Blade 3, Injustice, Mortal Kombat X, Epoch 2,etc.

    Anyone else having these issues? Should i simply downgrade or wait for a patch?

    The sound is messed up in X-Com: Enemy Within. No idea if it's Unreal 3 engine though
     
  3. It is based in UE3 IIRC

    I was playing mortal kombat and I got stuck between a series of two flashing screens that constantly changed at random. Had to hard reset my device in order to exit it as my device was stuck.

    Well at least we now know it's not an isolated incident. I'm disappointed that i can't enjoy Mortal Kombat X as much as i'd like to. Hopefully this is fixed soon enough.

    Was there any reason you updated to 8.3 so early ? With any update it's best to wait to hear if there's any issues.

    I looked over the fixes and thought that the update would most likely do more good than bad. I usually wait a few weeks before updating my IOS as well. No more impulse updating for me. Lol

    I always just throw myself into the updates. I've never been burned too badly.

    Tested more UE3 games and got the same results. Thankfully i can spend my time playing implosion. Fairly good game IMO.

    IOS 8.3 makes all my games run very laggy. Oddworld stranger's wrath have textures problems.
    The most stranger thing is when i run gfxbench Manhatan. On an Ipad Air 2 i get the following results:
    Onscreen: 27.1
    Offscreen: 37.6
    Very hight. I ran this for 11 times.

    Still running 8.1 just fine. Have been putting off upgrading because I don't know how big the Apple Watch app is and I'm not exactly running with a ton of space. Wish Apple would quit force installing stuff I don't want.

    Yeah, Oddworld is pretty much unplayable with how distracting the issues are. Bioshock isn't much better. Ugh. Please fix developers.

    Guess i will hold off on 8.3. There a number of minor issues that i have that looks like 8.3 corrects, but not worth the hassle if its causing other things to break.

    Is there a way of letting the developers know so that Bioshock and Stranger's Wrath get fixed or can we assume they already know? I want to continue playing both but as of now, Oddworld is especially unplayable.

    If you go to the Reviews tab of a game in the App Store there's an App Support link you can follow.
