Hi!

Thanks for a quick reply.

1. Connection is ok, cirlces are appeared in the simulator.
2. I've tried it in the simulator with ultimote. I have no access to mac now and can't build till the end of weekend.
3. "However, one thing we noticed to be a problem was if you do not move the device around a good bit you may not get any location events". Hmm, that's sound strange. I got all the location data in the maps app for example without any movements. But I've tried to walk around my house and get no events.

In my app I need to get the static location to know where I am. I don't need any paths or directions. Just static latitude and longtitude once is all I need.

I've got the location data in the console once at this evening, but can't repeat it.

Also at this sample http://developer.anscamobile.com/code/enhanced-springboard-slidephoto-viewer scrolling with ultimote works wrong, but I've tried this sample on the device and it works like charm.

I'm disappointed, cause I paid 17$ for an app to test without making builds (I have a limit access to a Mac) and two things I want to check: location and scrolling don't work properly. Maybe the problem is caused I'm on Windows, but I haven't noticed any warnings about it.

Please help!

Hello Overbeat,

Please send us your project (GPS) files to our email:
mydevelopergames@gmail.com
We will see if there is anything project specific that we can fix. We will also make the modifications to your GPS app to use the macros provided to show you how you can do this and make sure everything else works smoothly too. No worries, if all fails we will refund your money.

Thanks,

You can check that GPS sample (http://developer.anscamobile.com/content/gps) and that slider (http://developer.anscamobile.com/code/enhanced-springboard-slidephoto-viewer) They are both don't work properly.

If you can make them work, I think I will have no problem with my app.

Do I have to send these links to your email?

Hello Overbeat,

We have fixed your problems. Please redownload the library files from:
http://www.mydevelopersgames.com/site/Ultimote/UltimoteDistribution.zip
Make sure the first line of the ultimote.lua says
Corona® Ultimote v 1.43
As google Chrome was refusing to re download and using a cached copy.

We were able to get the location event to fire by un-registering all listeners and registering the location event every time you restart the simulator by using the registerEvents command. If you do not use ultimote.registerEvents function in your initialization code then you will not get GPS events because of the power saving feature we were talking about earlier. The following code effectively forces the device to give you a location event every time you restart the simulator:
local ultimote = require("Ultimote")
ultimote.registerEvents{"touch","location"}
system.setLocationAccuracy(5)
system.setLocationThreshold(0)
ultimote.connect()

The system.setLocationAccuracty and setLocationThreshold are forwarded to the device and essentially increases the frequency of location events. Please use those lines in your initialization code.

As for the swipe demo, everything works smoothly now. There was an error in handling the touch event dispatch code. Thank you for pointing out this error.

Please let us know if all this works and if you have any more questions/comments.

Regards,
M.Y. Developers

love your app and are using it a lot.

I wonder if the screen orientation of the app can be locked, I did not find any option for that, it would be useful with certain tests. For me it is flipping between landscape and portrait and landscape left right, which is unwanted.

Hello Une,

Thanks for your interest! Are you using an iOS device? We were able to get the desired behavior by going into the settings and enabling screen lock. Unfortunately on Android devices there seems to be a bug that prevents screen lock on applications. If you want we can send you a portrait only and landscape only versions of our app. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
M.Y. Developers

Hello, I am using an iOS device. Could you please point out how to enable screen lock, I was searching inside the app and in the device settings but still could not find that setting. Thank you.

Hello Une,

Sorry about the delay. If you have an ipod touch you can double click on the home button and a menu bar should pop up. scroll all the way to the left and you should see a screen lock option. For an ipad this option should be available in the preferences menu.

Hello, sorry, I was thinking you were referring to a setting inside the app. The iOS setting, as far as I have seen, does not provide this functionality, e.g. lock to landscape right.

@All,

New version for Android. The back button will now not exit the app allowing you to send the back event. Also, the in app options menu is removed because it takes up space and it is redundant.

Hi MY,
I've been on hiatus and just picked up my project again and continue the code but something doesn't seem to work like it used to.
Now, after I make the connection my fps drops to half and when I touch my phone it basically crawls to just <10fps.

I don't know what I do wrong here, I already remove all ultimoteobject=true property from the button and all.
Is there something I should know regarding how to use ultimote?, I had earlier version that works just fine and I'm using the same piece of code to connect the ultimote.

Thanks

MY doesn´t seem to be interested in our problems and the Ultimote app is broken (probably after an iOS updater or something).

I paid 20USD last week for this so I am somewhat angry why they are still selling this non-working application.

I will try to get Apple to remove it from their store.

Hello Roberto/Renato,

we assumed from the no responses from the thread:
https://developer.coronalabs.com/forum/2011/11/25/corona%C2%AE-ultimote-sale-15-today-only-0

That the issue was resolved. The application worked just fine on the simulator and worked on the devices we have here (ipod4.) The update also went past apple's rigorous approval process where they should have tested it on all devices. Have you installed the update?

Just send us your paypal address and we will send you a full refund.

Regards,
M.Y. Developers

I've bought the iOS version. Is the Android version available for free?

I can't get the accelerometer to work in realtime. Is it supposed I have to record a macro for that. I thought it worked in real time.

If I can't get the accelerometer in realtime, that is a disgrace, I expected that when I bought the software.

Can you let me know how to get it to work?

Thanks, Adrian

Hello Adrian,

Have you enabled the accelerometer in the options menu? Other than than you should not have to do anything else for it to work. Were you able to get multitouch to work?

" Is the Android version available for free?"
Yes if you bought the iOS version we will give you android for free. We can either send you the apk file or you can buy it on the store and we can issue a refund. We perfer option B as it will allow you to get automatic updates.

Wow that was really quick!

I am in the hospital and have nothing to do but play with corona and ultimote.

I could get the multitouch to work perfectly.
i have ony four options in the options menu:

multi-touch
compass
location
buttons

I dont see the accelerometer option

(I just got a bug with the options menu. it took an x and y position equal to halfW and halfH and I can now open lots of instances of options menu)

I would like to collaborate with the user interface, it needs to be other thing than the current one. I will try to plan donating some hours to make it better if you want to.

Back to the accelerometer, what else can I do? I am using iphone 3g, up to date iOS. is that an issue?

Cheers. Adrian

Hi

Thanks for your super quick reply, that is Customer Support!!

As you stated in your email it worked for me perfectly adding this to main.lua

ultimote = require "Ultimote";
ultimote.connect();

ultimote.registerEvents({"touch","accelerometer"}); -- very important at least for me, it started sending accelerometer in REAL TIME!!

Now Ultimote became a very cool toy and tool (I still dont know, because I am working and getting fun at the same time)

Thank you very much, Adrian

This product is so full of bugs its a miracle that Apple allowed it through. It crashes for no reason and has never gotten through the alpha stage. Just avoid it.

Hello Rn_999,

Sorry you are having issues. It is probably because of the new iOS "updates." Apple seems to always ignore backward compatibility with every single iOS update. In any case we will look into the issue and we can give you a refund if you wish. We can also give you our android version to try out if you like.

Regards,
M.Y. Developers
