New beta v0.7.14 is available now!

Post by Nut »

Hello fellow adventurers,

We have created a beta of our new Andor's Trail release for you, and uploaded it to the forum storage!
v0.7.14 is different to other releases. It doesn't contain any new content, except the translations.

Several languages are fully translated again:
99% Deutsch (old 81%)
99% Español (old 77%)
99% Italiano (old 93%)
99% Русский язык (old 93%)
99% 日本人 (old 93%)
98% Português Brasil (old 93%)
93% Française (unchanged)
90% Português (unchanged)
81% Polski (old 80%)
62% čeština (old 36%)
42% 中文 (old 32%)
37% Türkçe (old <30%)
35% Magyar (unchanged)
Turkish translations have increased to over 30%, so I added it to the language selection. Special thanks to the Turkish translators!


But there are also important engine changes.
For this beta we have our main focus on the engine changes. Google has changed the requirements for storage access, so we had to change some basic things in Andor's Trail, otherwise it could not be published in Google Play anymore.
The beta must be thoroughly tested - preferably by many players with various devices. Android 11 users should see some changes, users with lower Adroid version won't see any difference. Nevertheless please do the tests too.

Please help us and check the following:
  • The update imports any existing savegames and copies it to an app specific area. (This might take a while - be patient!)
  • After the update, the active game should continue normally.
  • The game can be saved
  • These saved games can be loaded again and continued. Especially, check the worldmap works.
  • Also saved games from older versions can be loaded again and continued. Check the worldmap works.
  • New games can be started normally.
  • Try a new permadeath game, is it working too?
  • Maybe you try to backup your files: Manual backups to PC are more difficult now. You won't get access to the saved games easily from a PC like before. But some file explorers like Total Commander should be able to do so.
  • Uninstall the game with the option "keep existing data". Then install it again. Do the saves + worldmap still exist and can be loaded?

In contrast to other beta versions do NOT uninstall Andors-Trail first!
But do make a backup of your whole savegame folder first! (andors-trail together with the sub folder worldmap)
And don't overwrite any savegames you want to use later. A saved game from this beta won't be usable in the production release!

Tell us of your experiences, good and bad.
Can you play the game? Save and load? Backup to PC or anywhere else?

Now here is the link to the beta: static/AndorsTrail_v0.7.14_beta1.apk
And again: !!!Don't forget to BACKUP your saves + maps before doing anything else!!!

All is well while I'm playing AT. :D

BUT I notice an additional file, namely dEAGyGE3YojqXJI3x4x7, which consumes large amount of storage(in KB) when I played the said beta. But it makes sense because the stated file is for the another specific line of codes (i.e 0c21bb99-bfcf-4b7e-92c9-6f72544aa446) right after the header string.
IDK what you call it.

Alot of the stats for your character are pretty close to the name of your character. Not in the header string (about 6 bytes over from offset 0x00, aka the start of the file). The header string appears in ascii text editors, which is what probably confused some people earlier on. It looks like "name level 1, 1 exp, 12 gold" that just displays on the load game menu. That first blank set of bytes looks like
00 00 00 19 00 04 6E 61 6D 65 00 17 6C 65 76 65 6C 20 31 2C 20 31 20 65 78 70 2C 20 31 32 20 67 6F 6C 64
Don't bother editing that.

Thank you for reading.
Your quest has been fulfilled! It's time for a nap.

Let's try and keep this thread on topic. This is actually a pretty important beta that we need to make sure is correct before the next content release. So if anyone else can do testing with Android 11/12 it would be greatly appreciated.

Those are pretty expensive devices, am I wrong? Rember that I'm an old nutcase as Lodar.
