Thread: Nickel Iron / HTML5 game written in... Object Pascal!

  1. #21
    Thanks mate! I just happened to have my tablet on, and it said I had a new email...and it was that!

    It works nicely, and is very responsive as far as I can tell

    If you were wondering, I have the heavier version (M7) of this tablet:
    http://apads.com.au/haipad-m7s-slim-...ite-p-103.html
    Mine is a Hiapad M7...

    I did notice one thing...it would some times say that I could repair a missile launcher, but not give me anything to click on to - unless I am going blind? haha

    The google chrome version didn't seem to allow me to repair any launchers, but only say I could

    Very nice work chief!

    cheers,
    Paul

    Any idea why market didn't allow it? Does it happen for other app?
    I don't ask for any right and your tablet is above 2.2.

    Did you have the flashing "repair"? You need at least +10 bonus for that (otherwise there is only a dark text, which might be confusing)

    The google chrome version didn't seem to allow me to repair any launchers, but only say I could
    Oops! Chrome sends mouse clicks, and I test repair only in the touch events! Will fix.

    Not sure why it happens...maybe it is a resolution issue? I don't know...it could just be due to my 'dodgy' Chinese tablet! haha
    I have sometimes seen it with other apps, but not too often.

    Ahhh...I did have the dark text only...I guess I didn't have the +10 bonus at the time

    Ok, no worries

    Just got a copyright infringement notice from Atari, apparently became a large enough blip on their radar to be worthy of the effort (I didn't knew they were still in the business tbh, and didn't expect to make a blip either).

    I'll be renaming it to "Nickel Iron", if some admin can change the title of this thread?

    Changed the thread title. Well I'd personally take that as a compliment.

    Not sure if Nickel Iron is as great a title. Actually I don't get it myself, but it's your dime.

    Question; Is this actually a commercial project or just a freeware game? Can't see how a fan-made for free clone could threaten them as there have been lots of notorious games that have been cloned and successful, yet the original creators never went after them.

    Atari is indeed alive and making games ...I think. They are now owned by Infogrames.

    Probably not, was the first title vaguely related to asteroids (Nickel Iron core) that apparently wasn't related to any trademark, and I was in a hurry ;-)

    Freeware.

    After receiving the notice, I made a search on the name mentioned in the notice, and found they apparently went against other free & fan sites (f.i. http://atariuser.blogspot.com/2011/0...enate-and.html).
    There is a note on the site above that they apologized, but I'm not sure what really happened, given what you can still see at http://atari2600.org/

    Could you rename it too in the February roundup as well? Sorry for the trouble...

    Hey Eric,
    I just searched for the new title "Nickle Iron" on the Google Market (play.google.com), and discovered that it is now compatible with my android tablet that it wasn't before...neat!

    I wonder what changed?

    cheers,
    Paul

    I didn't change anything in the manifest.xml, maybe some glitch in the market that got solved during the transition to google play?
