The internet is bombarded daily with new apps (app is the short term for application)
  • I did an update on my HTML5 app and in Safari (on an iPad and a Mac) the app has messed up sprites, and layouts that are jumbled. I did see this myself on my own iPad.

    I had the customers clear their browser and go back in and all is well, but they lost all their data stored in local storage.

    Anyone know why this is happening?

  • Every time I upload a new version I delete all files and then upload new ones.

    Because newer version may have differently organized sprite sheets, I guess, while naming remains the same, you may get cached files shown instead of new ones and they don't fit the newly exported version.

    Basically you have something like shared sheet 0 in your export, but now it contains different images, so it looks like nonsense.

    This happens even when not dealing with cached files. I guess game code may point to images on that sprite sheet and if you only upload new script files ( after a minor change ), or try to rewrite files, they still may come out wrong.

    Therefore nuke everything, then upload a new version.

    Not much you can do for people who already have the game and get served rong cached files ( other than tell them to empty their cache )

    Interesting. I had no idea.
