    Yeah, does that to me on android. If the screen locks, it restarts the app.

    Yep, gets very frustrating because the game doesn't do anything to keep your screen on. Need to grab a drink? Not until you're done with that run.

    I'm hoping it'll get fixed.

    I'm surprised, this is quite a bit more fun than I thought it'd be. The UI is all sorts of slow, but the game itself works fine.

    Having said that, is anyone else frustrated with the hit-stun mechanics? It's infuriating, getting hit once then careening into a pit or another obstacle because you can't jump. :argh:

    EDIT: Actually, on that note, I'm confused - How exactly does the scoring work? I honestly can't figure it out, sometimes I'll think I'm doing great and end up with barely 100 thousand points, other times I'll seem to be doing not much better than normal and get, like, 400 thousand.
     
  4. That has happened to me so many times. It is honestly my number one problem with this game aside from trying to attack enemies with Tails. Adding an extra jump or two after getting damaged would be a nice little fix.

    It's especially bad with Tails because, contrary to everything I know, he can't attack enemies with his tails while flying but can attack them if he lands on them. wut

    Wait why is Knuckles talking to Omochao? did he seriously leave Omochao in charge of the Master Emerald?!

    For the record, the audio format (that is, "HCA" or ADX2 (or maybe even HCAMX!)) used in this is the same as that used in Phantasy Star Online 2 save for the amount of padding in the header. There is an HCA decoder compatible with PSO2 HCA available with its source code floating around, so I'm fairly certain we can get it to decode the music from this with some minor tinkering. I intend to try that out when I have the time... unless somebody beats me to it!

  13. More odd stuff to report.
    When playing the game with headphones the ring sound effect doesn't play. Every other sound plays perfectly fine. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    How do you advance in the story? I just seem to stay on the same event. Worse still, today the game seems to have reset, so all my progress, red star rings and everything else has gone to zero.

    In addition, I've noticed that the game play sections are fast and fluid, but the menu sections are s-l-o-w. The messages take a whole 5 seconds just to pop-up. I am using an Xperia Play, which is quite old, but I wouldn't expect menus to take so long to load.

    I unlocked knuckles, he plays a lot better then tails but sonic is still the best because of his jumps.

    Honestly things like flying with tails or attacking with knuckles should be a seperate input, not merged in with the jump mechanics.

    Also as said above the scoring can be rather whack sometimes, a good run can score a lot less then a bad run because you were lucky and grabbed the score boosting item box or had three drills in a row.

    There's also too many walls of vertical spike balls in the 3rd speed tier, you can't react to them and hitting them causes the stun effect to kill you most of the time, it's cheap. Sonic Dash used to have this sort of problem at launch but they fixed it to stop impossible setups spawning next to one another, I hope something is done with the same problem in runners.

    I know that if you play the game with that option to use less cpu half of the sound effects dissapear, on iOS.

    Does anyone know how to reset the game, or how to view past story scenes? I accidentaly skipped one :(
     
  17. So, was just searching for Runners on the iOS app store. Stumbled upon this :v:

  18. Y'know, it's funny. The fourth zone song reminds me of Tropical Resort from Sonic Colors and the fifth zone song feels like a combination of Cool Edge from Sonic Unleashed and Aquarium Park from Sonic Colors, all composed by Ohtani.

    Oh man I haven't heard people mention Sanicball in a long time. Pretty sure it's no longer being updated though.

    I don't have the .ipa to try it, but VGMstream has supported ADX2/HCA since late 2013. Most people are familiar with that plug-in already. It's still being updated, they added support for the Smash Bros 4 streams a few months ago.
    The problem with ADX2 is that they change encryption keys between games, and AFAIK vgmstream just has some hard-coded ones. There was a tool, I believe called guessADX that would attempt to brute force the keys.

    In short, I agree with Morph, the tools you need already exist. Just might need to figure out the keys.
