Happy Wednesday! Isaac and I just launched a new version of the beta that you can download with TestFlight. If you're already signed up to be a tester, just open the TestFlight app to update your copy. If you have an iPhone or iPad but haven't signed up yet, use the form at the bottom of this page to join the beta test. We hope you enjoy the new levels we've added, and we can't wait to hear what you think! 🙌
As developers, Isaac and I naturally spend a fair amount of our lives on computers and smartphones. Consequently, we've grown to value stability in all the software we use. There's nothing more frustrating than losing an hour of work to a random blue screen, and nothing disrupts relaxing gameplay quite like getting booted out of the app for no discernible reason.
One of the ways we're working to cut down on crashes in How I Roll is with crash reports. We're using KSCrash, an amazingly handy and thorough crash-reporting framework. If you're unfortunate enough to encounter a crash while you're beta testing for us, KSCrash will automatically figure out why the app crashed and send a report to me and Isaac the next time you launch the game. From there it's much easier for us to figure out what our code was doing wrong so we can build a fix into the next version of the beta. Hooray!
Sometimes when I'm working in the editor for How I Roll, I'll inadvertently build a face into a level. This little fellow was hiding in a particularly challenging series of obstacles I threw together.
Cheer up, mysterious level critter!
