Either get a new device or stop playing games that run like shit on yours, because seriously; ever since you joined us over a year ago, the only thing I can recall about you is other people complaining about you derailing threads with non-stop optimization bullshit and ruining threads for others.
Thank you.

I have to agree with Sidgoku. They were many ppl in this thread complaining about bad framerates (me too) and he has a point which is truth after all.
So my brand new rMini is shitty, huh? Or is it rather the bad optimization? Guess it's the second one. Or maybe i should buy myself a last gen iPad 4 were it runs smooth?
Sry but i can't enjoy a game which is almost unplayable at 15fps in worst case scenarios.
I've already deleted it from my device and am waiting for an update which adresses this issue.
So far...it's wasted money as of now.

Not everyone here can enjoy a game at 24fps and not everyone can afford to buy a note 3 either.I'm playing on a quadcore phone which is on par with iphone 5 and it lags badly on it.If you are that bothered by the optimization stuff then why don't you ignore it?

You find it pointless but that doesn't make it pointless.
I suspect others should know about the port before they are purchasing it praising everything nonsensically is equal to misleading others who do read these posts...anyway how do you know that 'nobody cares about it',This blind defending of yours is pretty sad.

Is talking about the framerate derailing the thread,if so then tell me what isn't derailing the thread?
Random gifs and meme are all but ok but optimization a very relevant thing related to gameplay experience is ''bullshit"?
How much is enough nowdays anyway do I need to put in 1000$ every year to play 10 year old ports smoothly?A quadcore is somehow not enough...I can understand with android but it lags on apple devices too what happened there?
Pointing out the poor framerate is considered derailing and whatnot...So should I start spewing praises about how smoothly it runs or how the controls are perfect and having other options for controls is out of question or how playing it for long sessions without straining eyes or failing missions because of the poor framerate is possible...
Forgive me for not covering all your points, but why is framerate/optimization discussion from yourself bothering me? Because, as mentioned in my previous post...people have always been complaining about it. Not only have I been around TA way too much to notice things right off the bat, but for Christ's sake, I'm a mod...I see things other people don't see and 6 months ago you were put in time-out for disregarding a moderator's warning on this very matter.

That coupled with the fact that the entire iOS/mobile gaming world is gushing over how War Drum Studios have nailed this port, yet you say things like "Shame on you WD really you don't mess up three times in a row." and say they don't respect the game, or whatever? That's ****ing ridiculous.

As far as people are considered they complain about everything they don't agree with...which doesn't change the fact that optimization is a valid topic for discussion or that's how it is all over the other sites,if TA is an exception then please let me know.
You don't get it, do you? This has nothing to do with TouchArcade (the site itself). While the admins oversee the whole thing, the forums are here because of tons and tons of people like you and me, each with our own opinions. We're free to sit and argue about our different opinions all day, but from a moderator stand-point; when said tons and tons of people are complaining about the fact that they could give half a turd about your issues with framerate and optimization (which hey, think about it...in this case are more suited for the Android sub-forum), that's where I step in. You wouldn't shut up about XCOM and that landed you in time-out, and you're still at it, just with a different game.

Not nitpicking, iPad Air is technically the iPad 5.

As for this game, it runs fine on my iPad 4, no issues here so far. And is the A7 really underpowered compared to the A6? Genuine question.

Hate to pull a Sidgoku, but even if it (the A7) was underpowered in some ways (I've heard the raw triangle output of the A6 is superior, but the A7 handle shaders better....?), getting a PS2 game running on modern iOS hardware shouldn't really be a problem.

Functions like calling and texting have no impact on gaming performance whatsoever.

It's ofc not underpowered or slower then the A6.
The low triangle output was due to a non optimised version of the benchmark tool. (like Sidgoku said once)

Just download 3Dmark or GFXbench from the appstore, compare the iPad 4 and iPad Air/miniR results and you will see the A7 blows the A6 out of the water in every single aspect.

3Dmark is already optimised for 64bit which results in slightly better scores compared to the old 32bit version.

The A7 GPU is a whole new architectur which every game needs to be optimised for to get the most out of it. Just like the last update of Oceanhorn did on the miniR.
Before: 20-25fps
After: rocksolid 60fps
