    That's really quite excellent with such a low (compared to other top players) amount of time put into the game. Good job.

    14.5 hours here

    Do we have an estimate for the update? The ghost line is really bugging me on some levels

    Is it the (lack of) transparency, or the really bad jitter that is bugging you?

    I don't have an estimate on an update yet. So far there have been very few bugs, and most are easy to fix. The really bad ghost jitter is a bit of a mystery at the moment, as it doesn't happen all the time.

    Its the really jittery line. It does happen all the time for me though, just depending on the level. 1-1 is constantly awful, but most other levels are always fine. I find that using the ghost is just way too distracting, and I don't think that will change with transparency. Ghost line is perfect for speedrunning, while the regular ghost is probably perfect for those playing the game at slower speeds, when the ghost doesn't overlap

    Unfortunately, the bad line gets recorded so you'll see it every time you play a level with the jitter ghost. The only way to currently fix is by beating your saved ghost, and hope that the new ghost isn't jittery. Of course, that isn't the real solution. I still need to track it down. I have yet to reproduce the jitter bug myself, so it is making it tough to track.

    I hear you about the ghost. I've always had a hard time with ghosts and lines in that I find them so distracting. But they really help in getting that faster run!

    I think I'll use the ghost when it's just barely visible on the screen. I'm looking forward to that option. Till then I've used the line and it fairly randomly is jittery. I think it is probably how the game records the data for where your character is during a speed run and then how it's played back during a level. It doesn't seem to happen as much for me with the line as with the ghost, but I think that may simply be due to what data is being used for the playback.

    An option for diagnosing it, try to get it to happen and once it does, back up the data to a computer and pick through the results. I'm fairly positive it's in that data though because once I get a jittery ghost/line, it's (I think) always jittery until I beat that time.
     
  14. You know I still gotta try this with my icade.

    Not perfect and with a camera, but it will give you an idea of how to go to the top 10 ;)

    Playing on the iPad looks much easier because you still see most of the screen :D

    Yes, it is the saved ghost data. Something to do with a change we had to make to support saving ghost data to the cloud.

    You still haven't tried Mikey Hooks with your iCade?!?! I'm so disappointed! :)
