Version 0.3.7o – 11 February, 2023

CHANGES

Saved Games:
  • Tallowmere 2 uses a plugin called CloudOnce that utilises iCloud's key-value storage system, with the intent of allowing file syncing between iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.
  • Post-launch, it was discovered that iCloud's key-value system has a 1 MB storage limit per app.
  • This is fine for one or two typical saved game files, but the 1 MB limit causes storage errors once file sizes exceed this limit, which does happen.
  • There currently aren't any suitable plugins for the Unity game engine that allow access to iCloud's CloudKit or Documents systems, which do not have such storage limits.
  • As such, for the interim, iCloud key-value support will be phased out for saved games. Existing saved games in the key-value system will be downloaded and stored locally if possible. Going forward, new saved games will be stored locally until further notice.


Version 0.3.7n – 23 January, 2023

FIXES

Touchscreen:
  • Further fixes to address multi-touch input issues.

Touchscreen:
  • Added positioning options for the Interact button and bottom buttons.
  • Added "hold to activate" options for many buttons.
  • The Chat button now has "hold to activate" enabled by default.
Text:
  • Added text advising that saved games are deleted upon death.
Fixes:
  • Fixed an error that could happen during death sequence with inventory open.


Version 0.3.7j – 3 January, 2023

FIXES & IMPROVEMENTS

iOS & Google Play:
  • Fixed and improved many cloud sync issues with saved games and achievement progress, especially at startup.
