Re-Volt [Done] Horizon screen on Android version

Unread post by keyaa » Wed Mar 20, 2019 1:47 pm

I have been enjoying Re-Volt since my childhood. Now that we have heard that the perfect version of Re-Vlt has been ported to Android, now I can now enjoy Re-Volt anytime, anywhere.

But I feel one inconvenience. As far as I know, most people turn off their smartphone's auto-rotate feature. It means that the screen of the smartphone is fixed vertically, to use smartphone with one hand.

In this state, the Re-Volt are also running in a fixed state(vertically screen). I can play the game in this state, however, there are users who like to play the game horizontally like me.

If I turn on the auto-rotate feature of your smartphone and rotate the device horizontally, I can enjoy the Re-Volt on the landscape screen... but this is both annoying and inconvenient. Especially if I am lying in bed and playing game.

I would like to have the Android version of Re-Volt run unconditionally on the horizon screen, or save settings related to this in the game.

I hope I have good results. I wait to reply. Thank you.

+1. I had this issue as well, especially with the part about playing the game while laying down in bed. Roll on your side, and suddenly the game rotates as well in the middle of the race. I hardly ever use auto-rotate aside from playing Re-Volt, so it would be one less step too.

This is planned already. Maybe an option in Video Settings (Screen Orientation: Auto / Landscape / Portrait). Not sure which should be the default though? Also whether 180 degree rotations should still be allowed when not using Auto? (eg, Landscape <-> Reverse Landscape)

Update: Added in 19.1230a.

I hope the game will be executed on the horizon screen unconditionally like some mobile games (for example: Asphalt 9, Minecraft, etc...) This means that the game will run horizontally even when I do not use automatic screen rotation.

Ditto on having horizontal screen as the default setting. Most other racing games I've played on mobile (granted, there haven't been a lot of them) do that as well. I think auto-rotation would still be okay if restricted to 180 degrees, though I can definitely see people trying to play the game upside down. :P
