Is this a free update for existing Bulge owners?

Agree with prior sentiment of severe disappointment. (here:viewtopic.php?f=343&t=67473)

For a complete description of issues I and others have experienced I would also point you to the thread on the PocketTactics site.

Wish I was able to roll back.

Please do give us your feedback. The team are working hard to resolve any issues. This is an entirely new engine as we could not support the older one and needed to bring it up to date so it could move forwards. There are many exciting plans so bear with us as we resolve any outstanding issues.

Minor discrepancy. I noted that the 2.14 update shows as version "1.14" on the opening screen?

Could we please have 2.0 back?

Version 2.14 is clearly not a universal app, not suitable for playing on the iPhone.

This shows how it should be done: http://www.colourandnoise.com/work/batt ... ge-iphone/

Please give us 2.0 back!

Dear Sirs,
The new version doesn t work with ipad!
It s very slow, many difficulties to move units..the touch works bad and it s even difficult to select the units .
Colors are less brilliant and obstacles disappears from map.
The old version was far better.
What s on? Now it s almost impossible to play with! :(
Thank you.

Which type of iPad do you have and which OS are you running?

I found a rules bug that I'd like to report, but I can't find the report button like the old version used to have. How do I report a bug now?

FWIW, a breakthrough tank attack didn't use the breakthrough, so in the subsequent phase move it was allowed to move as if it wasn't activated. Also. If one wishes to move a mechanized unit to capture an adjacent specs and return to its original position, the software does not believe the player wishes to move, so you must remain in your original position and pass, or move to the space you wish to capture. No touch and returns allowed as before.

This is the place to report any bugs:
viewforum.php?f=343

That way the whole team can see it and other players can help if there is a simple explanation.
