SciFly update killed turn controls

Why would they release an update that disables turning left or right? Where is the quality control?? I hope they update this update soon since it's an otherwise nice update...outside of completely butchering the controls.

What exactly is wrong? I can turn fine. I tilt to turn left/right and climb/dive, and the left and right buttons adjust yaw.

Reinstalling (there goes all of my hours of progress) did the trick.

Hello,
I am the developer of SciFly. I've submitted an update to Apple which fixed this problem. Until it gets accepted, I've posted a fix to Licentia's website.

Sorry that this reply is so short, typing in class from iPhone.

Thanks,
Josh Rosen

Deleting it does do the trick. And now that it's working again, I should tell you the game is a lot more fun than before with some great sound and smooth controls.

Hi, Josh. I've heard that you are a high school age developer. I think you have a bright future ahead of you, thanks for all your hard work, and best of luck!

Thanks for the heads up. This is why I love these forums.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

I got the update, but I haven't played it yet. So, there's really no issue?

Wow, is that true??? That's incredible if it is! :S I'm in high school and I can't even describe how awesome that is.

There are so many interesting people on TA...

I don't suppose the levels last any longer do they? To me, the only weakness of this game is it's brevity. I wish it would at least pop you into another level once you complete one instead going back to the main menu.

Hi,
Just wanted to drop by and say that 1.4 has been released and that I'm looking to get confirmation by users as to its effectiveness at solving these problems.

Also... Yup, I am in High School, 17. I try to be as professional as possible, but these bugs certainly haven't been a shining example of that. Thanks for your interest in SciFly, can't wait to provide everyone with even better games soon!
