Gobliins 2 and 3 on iPad problems?

Post by commonpeople »

Anyone else having problems with Gobliins 2 and 3? It doesn't seem to recognize mouse clicks unless 'click-and-drag' is enabled, and if that's on it starts recognizing all my left clicks as right clicks as soon as a right click is made.

I've played through The Dig and Monkey Island with no hiccups, but can't seem to figure out if I'm doing something wrong with Gobliins. Please enlighten me if I'm being an idiot!

And thanks so much for the port -- these games are more fun to play on my iPad than they were on the PC years ago!

Hi
Same problem for me : I can't click but I can move the cursor on gobliiins or woodruff.
I'm using the May 2 2010 availiable on Cydia for Ipad.
Other games are ok (day of the tentacle, sam & max)

Thanks for your help

Authors, please fix this problem! I was wrong and even version 1.1.0 is not working prophetly. Taps in Goblins seems to work completely incorrect. Cursor is moving, but taps are not working.

Program still is in 1.2.0

I for one don't have an iPad, and that problem doesn't occur on GNU/Linux, so I have no way of tracing the problem, let along fixing it.

The same code is used for iPad and iPhone, so it's no surprise that any bug the affects one would also affect the other.

However, DrMcoy, who is one of the people working on the Gob engine, does not have an iPad/iPhone, and cannot reproduce the issue on his computer, so can't do anything about it, which he wanted to say here, for the record (so that you don't think you are being ignored ;).
We'd need our iPhone porter to take a look at it, I guess, or somebody else familiar with the iPhone port...

I plan to put in some work on 1.2 this weekend, I'll try to take a look at this then.

Thanx for your help, I tried Woodruff with 1.21 and the mouse worked only once and with bug on right click.

Now i'm on ScummVM ver 1.00.
Iphone 4 iOS 4.3.2
Mouse works well, but graphics looks a little bit crapy on iphone 4 retina display compared to ver 1.21.

Can this problem be fixed easily ? It worked on 1.00 ..
Thanx a lot.
