GBWG available only for 1GB+ Windows Phone Devices?

Postby Moterrola » Sun Dec 29, 2013 9:22 pm

Good evening.
I found out today that Great Big War Game have been released on Windows Phone. I have really good memories with this game - I played Great Little War Game, which is technically quite similar I guess, on my Samsung Galaxy Gio (single core ARMv6 Android device with 368MB of RAM) with my friend who was playing on LG Swift (single core ARMv6 Android device with 256MB of RAM). But I was tired of poor optimisation of Android and moved to Windows Phone - specifically, Nokia Lumia 520. I was very surprised when I found out that 512MB of RAM and dual-core processor isn't enough to run the game which I used to play on much weaker devices with much slower OS. Why is it?

No idea tbh, we don't get to filter anything out and you're right that a phone with that much beef should rune the game ok.

I'll raise the question with our MS rep.

Hi there,

Is the device getting filtered out at the Store level? Our app is set to require 512MB, not 1GB.

Thanks,

Steve.

The game cannot be found through the marketplace while searching from my phone. When I click the link with it to the Marketplace, it shows that the game is incompatibile because it requires 1GB of RAM.

Ah, that'll do it. The relevant person has been prodded to fix that as it clearly shouldn't be a requirement.
