Thread: Free camera motion bug and tilt glitch

    Default Free camera motion bug and tilt glitch

    I found a problem with the free view camera. Whenever I hold the camera down and tilt the device to try and view parts of the table, the image always goes off in a random direction and not where I am trying to view it.

    Also there seems to be a problem with the touch nudge. I'll go to pull the plunger down and the table will tilt instead.

    I have an iPhone 5s now, but it was still doing the same thing on my 4s as well

    The free look camera mode has always been a bit sketchy when using the accelerometer to change the view. My iPad 3 is okay but the iPad 1 was pretty bad. I don't play on my iPhone, but I am guessing the problem with the touch nudge is because the upper half or upper third of the screen is dedicated to nudging. As you make a swiping gesture down to mimic the action of pulling a plunger, you are activating the nudge because you start the swipe on the upper part of the screen. I don't this is really a bug but more of UI complication because there is not a lot of real estate on the iPhone to allow both a full plunge and a dedicated region for touch nudging. I am not sure how difficult it would be to tweak the UI so that the touch nudging is disabled just during the plunge. The good thing though is that you can't tilt during the plunge. Nudge as many times as you want when you are plunging and it is impossible to tilt. I imagine this might be a bit annoying but I don't think it is a high priority. I think some of the table bugs like those on Episode V and Clone Wars should take priority at the moment.
