Bug? Problem with gamma?

Postby BradleyLove » Thu Oct 27, 2016 4:52 pm

Hello,

As a fan of the previous games (GLWG and GBWG), I have downloaded the free version of GLWG2 to sample with the intention of buying GLWG2. However, I'm finding the gamma to be way off during battles. The UI is fine, but the 3D graphics (map, units,etc) are very dark.

I'm playing on iPad Air 2 with iOS 10.

Does the paid version suffer from the same issue? If so, are there plans to correct this issue? It's pretty unplayable right now due to this.

Thanks.

Edit: same issue is present on iPhone 6S too.

It will doubtless look the same as it's the same underlying code.

Not seeing this though, dunno what might be wrong with it. Can you post a screenie please?

I've attached a grab from both GLWG2 and GBWG, for comparison purposes.

Thanks. It looks like they've messed up backwards compatibility with the z-buffer precision, which has thrown everything into shadow.

It's not like this on our test device but we've not got the very latest os version on their yet. Will take a pass at stuff like this soon as we do, but tbh epic little war game is sucking up most of our time atm.

If there is an option to disable shadows in the game settings, try that just to get it looking reasonable? (I can't remember if ios has it and don't have a device handy to check on). Sorry that's wooly, it's late here and I wanted to post at least something.
Regards, Paul Johnson.

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately there isn't a shadows option on iOS.

I guess I'll hang tight and wait for Epic War Game. Best of British, with that endeavour!

Thanks, and sorry about this. I hate it when people move the goalposts.

We'll try and get everything updated soon when the iOS guy comes back from sitting on a beach somewhere...

The new one is coming on in leaps and bounds, looking like spring next year. :)

Looking forward to it. GLWG and GBWG have really scratched the itch I first acquired from Battle Isle and Battle Isle: Moons of Chronos on the Amiga. The later titles in the BI series (on PC) became too complicated and less fun, however.

That being said, I hope the new game has submarines in. Maybe wall-building/trenches. Maybe multiple sequential objectives (e.g. Capture facility > get 1000 cash > rescue units > destroy enemy base) too. :)

I can second the darkness. I ran the game on both iOS 8 and 9. Not a HUGE deal, but it does make big turns a little more difficult to plan.

But I'm way more excited for ELWG!
