Platforming Mobile Controls
« on: March 18, 2015, 11:40:57 AM »

I am working on mobile controls to include with my Playmaker Platforming kit. Here is an Android APK sample, any feedback on the touch controls would be much appreciated!

First question, does Playmaker Platforming kit require a dev to purchase
Virtual Controls Suite?

Second, what does this mean on the physical end of things for third party peripherals that add real buttons plus a d-pad?

1. No there is no reason to purchase Virtual Controls Suite any longer. This was the idea behind including my own virtual controls.

2. That is a really good question, I will have to look into it. I actually never thought about that.

I added button artwork and made some modifications to the mobile controls thanks to all the feedback. I enlarged the touch areas, added speed smoothing to the sprint function, and added button press scaling instead of color changing. I also fixed a bug that caused the player to stick to walls when pressing towards them while in mid air.

I've uploaded a new Sample APK for anyone who wants to try it out. This update has already been submitted for approval on the Asset Store.
