Hi All,

I have versions of my game, SplatWord released on Android and pending approval from Apple. They both use AppGameKit version 1076 and are hopefully bug free.

However, I am working on the BlackBerry release using the Tier 1 and Tier 2 Beta from 15th May. This has to use AppGameKit version 1065 and I think there may be a bug on BlackBerry with GetPointerX or ScreenToWorldX.

If I click on the screen continuously and place a sprite at the point of the touch:



Every now and again the Sprite jumps in an erratic fashion, way off from my finger press.

Has anyone noticed this behaviour or does anyone have a workaround?

Failing a work around, does anyone know when a BlackBerry update is planned?

Thanks,

Chris

Something very strange happening!

I've since tried the app after a hard reboot and the touch events are perfect.

Next time I'll turn it off and turn it back on again before I post!

An updated AppGameKit for the Playbook would be great.

I don't use the ad commands so I was able to use my v1076 code by just commenting out a few new commands. However, I did have to rework my highscore screen because I was using the new edit text box.

My app, SplatWord has made it onto BlackBerry App Word so fingers crossed for a few sales.

I did get to the bottom of the touch events jumping around. They jump for all Apps if the Playbook is being charged from my PC.

Yes, it seems using a non-bbpb charger will cause the pb to throw a wobbly. I noticed the problem with the UI months ago, didn't realise that it would cause problems with code though, even though it makes sense...
