Map scale changes by itself (0.7.5 F-Droid)

Post by rigger »

I first used v0.7.5 from F-Droid. It had a normal scale of game view (the one that can be configured from the preferences): 1 game-art pixel = 1 screen pixel. AFAIR this was the case from the beginning. (But maybe not).
Recently I tried to install 0.7.7 from this site. The playing area became scaled up, about (sadly I did only 1 screenshot) as when you set "scaling factor" to "Double size". Thinking that maybe the setting is somehow bugged, I opened the preferences, then "scaling factor" - but it was set to "Normal size". I tried setting it to "double size", then it became even worse (4x size), then back to "normal size" (still 2x size)...
It became hard to navigate, it was as if looking through a small hole.
The UI was still the normal size, as ever.
I tried to reinstall F-Droid 0.7.5, but it was still stuck on blurry hugeness. I made this screenshot then.

Tried renaming the old andors-trail folder - nothing.
I played for a few mintues several times, stopping due to frustration each time. Once, when I opened the game again (it must have been killed by the OS, since I got the main screen with the moving clouds...) I tapped "Continue" and the scale was normal again! (See screenshot.)

Since then, I'd like to avoid reinstalling again, it might bring the hugeness back...
Is this a known problem?

Hi rigger,
thx for posting this. I have encountered this effect too already. Looks like closing the app helps - please try that again if you encounter the problem again, and tell us.

What is your phone and android version?

The phone is Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) with Android 8.1 installed. But when I first installed AT, it might have been Android 7.
I'll try closing the app.

Well, simple closing doesn't seem to help. (on 0.7.8 beta, too). Apparently the app must be killed by the OS for the scale to normalize. (I haven't got the beta to display normally yet.) I don't have any idea what else is required.

Do you know how to manually kill the app?

Well, swiping it to the side in Recent apps screen doesn't help. It does seem to close (it vanishes from the Recent screen and shows main screen when re-opened)

Hello,

In the latest update we have at least a workaround so you can choose 0.5 or 0.75 scaling:
