    Re: So What is this Online Stuff?

    It's still working great for me, same set up, but the phone is not jailbroken. Works great on ipad mini too.

    This is my first post, but I've been playing the game for a few years. The online feature has been a big boon for me, as I had quit playing the game a year ago. The CPU was too easy to beat. I would love to see an upgraded CPU opponent, if possible.

    But the online feature has been fun. It would also be awesome to add some kind of chat feature, to get people interacting and spread the game more. Pocket Tanks is one of the best games out there.

      Re: So What is this Online Stuff?

      I must have had a funky network connection or something, because gameplay has been pretty much rock solid since I posted my problem. I was traveling and staying at a hotel so maybe that was the issue. I apologize for stirring the pot. All is well in Tank Town....

      On another note, if you folks get around to pushing out another update, maybe a confirmation "are you sure" type of screen could be added that pops up when you hit the log off button. I seem to have a problem with accidentally hitting the log off button when I'm sticking the phone back in my pocket, and I'll be ****** if I can remember my password on the first 8 tries......

        Re: So What is this Online Stuff?

        Glad to hear that Online has revitalized the game for you. Chat is, as I've said here before, a mixed bag, and not in our short-term plans. Neither is adjusting the AI. However, we do have interesting ideas on that, possibly for a future artillery game, maybe even for a future Pocket Tanks update.

        Johnny, I'm pleased your play experience has improved. I think a confirmation dialogue for logging out is a good idea, and I'm kind of ashamed I didn't think of it when I was reviewing Apple's HIG. I'll add that to our todo list for the next update.

          Thanks Brian! And don't worry about Metallian needing chat. He just wants it so he can cuss me when I whoop up on him....

                  I had a few really good opponents. But right now I'm on the test server (Secret hush hush project), so I can't play much with live folks without getting all confused about which installs are which.

                      You'll have to beat me more than once to find out...

                      I'm not on your reliable list, JohnnyMac? I'm hurt.

                      In addition to JohnnyMac, i've found epster and cavcor to be very responsive. Quick back and forth games.

                        You're on my reliable list Metallian. Your name was mentioned above so I figured it was a given.... No worries brah...

                              I am SO glad to have online play. I've been playing versions of this since the 90s on my Amiga 500. HOWEVER... is there not some way to classify the weapons so that both opponents in random matchups have something at least roughly equivalent in damage/burying/tunneling ability? I just got a match against someone and out of my "weapons" I got showdown, super funnel, island, bouncy dirt, gyro glue, hedge, and snowdrift? The weapons I got were explode-a-tron and color bomb, and mass driver (which isn't so much a weapon as russian roullette)... Needless to say, I am not winning this one. The other guy got guided missiles and heavy ordinance.

                                That's part of the fun.... :-) I love it when I have crap weapons and end up beating a guy that is set up with good ones. Doesn't happen often, but if I lose, I just challenge them again and hopefully I get the good ones the next time! Good luck!
