Air Wings / 12.2
« on: July 26, 2017, 12:16:40 PM »
I just submitted 12.2 which has the new player map feature.  Should be approved later today at the rate Apple has been approving things.

Generally speaking SheepSaver doesn't work, at least not 100%.  I've never tried it here, but I always get people with weird bug reports only to find out it's because they're running the games in emulation and not on the real Mac OS 9.

Yes, that will work too.  The game saves a local copy of the data as well since not everyone uses iCloud, so turning off iCloud will keep the data local and not sync it at all.

Around what exactly?  Are you trying to maintain separate stats on different devices?  If so, you have to have a different iCloud account on each device, otherwise it will sync the game data.

That's not entirely correct.  All of the player data is saved into iCloud.  Game Center only stores scores on the leaderboard, but everything else is stored into iCloud, so any device logged into that iCloud account will sync to that cloud data.

Also, look at the Player Stats page and see if the Battles Played and Battles Won values are correct.  You can just divide won/played to get the ratio.  Each time you play the Played should go +1 and if you won the Won should go +1.

Hmm... well, I'm not sure why it would do that.  I'm not seeing that happen here with my own win ratio, and I've checked the code and don't see anything unusual.  It's the same code that's always been in there for that:

         float winRatio = (float)_numWins / (float)_numBattles * 100.0f;

I'll keep looking, but this whole thing is handled just by a few lines of code.

As I said earlier...I won 20 games in a row this morning...it went from 76% to 50.8% after I was done. Does not sound right to me.

Is it showing the same ratio in both the Player Stats and on the Connection screen?

Actually, I was mistaken.  I'm not sure what I was thinking.  Only the Flake ratio is calculated over a 4 day period.  The win ratio is still lifetime and has nothing to do with a 4 day period.  The win ratio works as it always has.  You're saying it's not?

I've gotten a few emails about what appears to be incorrect flake and win ratio calculations, but it's actually working correctly.  The issue is that this average is over a 4 day period, so if several "Wins" get purged out it can throw the ratio off making your win ratio decrease even tho you won the previous match.  Same with the flake ratio.  Say you played 10 games around lunchtime 4 days ago, and you won them all.  Now, 4 days later, you play the game at lunch time, well, those 10 wins are thrown out and the new averages could very well be lower.

I've been playing on and off all day without any issues here, so I'm guessing this is just the usual Game Center flakiness.

Well, 12.1 is out now and seems to be working fine, so you can ditch the beta.  I haven't seen to many people with 12.1 playing yet - it's easy to tell because they're the ones who's stats appear during connection.

Air Wings / 12.1
« on: July 19, 2017, 08:11:59 AM »
I just submitted the latest update, and I'm bumping it up to 12.1 because it has a significant new feature.  Here's all that's changed in 12.1:

•  You will now see the other players Win and Flake ratio during the connection process (only if they're also on 12.1).
•  Fixed a major memory leak and a few other smaller issues.
•  For players using the game for free there will be fewer interstitial ads.
•  Implemented an additional flake-out test which won't affect anyone but the really, really chronic flakers.

Is anyone who's running the latest beta seeing anything weird with the flake out ratios?  Bob C has been reporting an issue that I simply cannot reproduce which is that the flake ratio goes up after completing a legit game battle.  My flake ratio always goes down when I do that, not up, so I'm curious if anyone else is seeing it?

the latest beta that I just put out now has the player info under their name durning connection.  It will show the player win % and flake %.  However, this only works if connected to another player running this beta build.
