Taller screen iPhone 5
« on: September 13, 2012, 07:57:15 pm »
So, now that the iPhone 5 with a taller screen has been announced, will Super Hexagon be updated to match the new screen dimensions? And if that's the case, won't it make the game easier as you can see further ahead?

It looks like Apple finally uploaded the Xcode that lets you create and test iPhone-5 form factor stuff? :O

@mcclure111 @smestorp I'll have to wait for adobe to catch up, unfortunately (I've never used xcode!)

This help?

Yes. I didn't know you could create iPhone apps without Xcode, though!

To add to this topic, which answers my question about the game getting easier:

Terry Cavanagh ‏@terrycavanagh
Cool, iPhone 5 resolution implemented! Hopefully this actually works... http://i.imgur.com/tnETm.png

@terrycavanagh How are you handling it? Do iPhone 5 users have a wider view of what's coming?

Terry Cavanagh ‏@terrycavanagh
@RKRigney Yeah, basically - it's zoomed in very slightly, though!

Ryan Rigney ‏@RKRigney
@terrycavanagh Ah, okay. So basically it all came down to altering the camera. I ask because other developers are facing weirder challenges.

@terrycavanagh Like I know that @helvetica is adding additional rows (and thus separate leaderboards) to SpellTower on iPhone 5.
