Game behaves weird in Arcade but fine as website

  • Hi there! I uploaded a copy of my game to the Arcade after testing it in various browsers as website, but I see that in Arcade:

    * touch directions are not working (select/start/a/b work)

    * when a new game is started the pieces are not falling

    This is the link to the game hosted in my website:

    http://andreabianco.eu/games/constructris1.2/

    And this is the game on Arcade:

    http://www.scirra.com/arcade/puzzle/5401/constructris

    I tried to understand what is going on for a couple of hours already and while I don't give up I would appreciate some help :) Does anyone have a clue about what is going on? I am not using any third party plugin, I removed all webgl effects. I'm stuck because as I said the game works as expected in browsers, even when opened on android/wp8 browsers (well it's still needing some optimizing to be more playable and responsive on mobile, but it works).

    Thanks in advance,

    Andrea.

  • Since no one answered, I answer myself (somehow). I just downloaded the beta r141 and compiled again my game and uploaded it to Arcade.. you know, just in case ;) and guess what, the game now works! At least here. I wonder what was the problem and if r141 really fixed things or it was a server issue that got fixed in same moments.. whatever, I just hope the game will keep working ahah.

    So please go, have fun and rate me good if you think the game is nice :)

    It is well-known, at least by me, that games or certain behaviors or whatever behave differently between the preview browser and in the arcade. I'm guessing it has something to do with iframe?!?

  • Hi Manley23, I did read some of your posts recently and I agree with you :)

    The Arcade is such a great idea, I really hope they will make it better. About C2 made games, I am seriously considering only targeting Chrome and desktop for the new game I'm working on!

    In meantime I am working to port Constructris to Android/iOS/WP8, it's part of the test I had in mind (developing a simple full functional game and port it to various platforms).
