Dear Piper Community,
We’ve just had two days of uninterrupted fun with PiperBot. However, something went wrong.
Today we woke up to a completely new reality: our PiperBot is currently buggy. The bug seems to be small, but really ugly, and is pretty
much a showstopper.
The screen resolution (or the resolution at which Piper app is trying to display) got distorted. The biggest problem now is that we can’t see the hint texts, we also can’t see the exit to menu button (when we press middle button). When at main menu, we don’t see the “Update button”.
The app stretched itself so that entire right section is cut off, it also took most of the top space, where the hints used to display.
See the screenshot to see how much of hints we can see now.
Oh, I did the updating to get the most recent version of the app.
Here’s what I tried:
- Find “change resolution” option - checked Preferences - to no avail. Was unable to change resolution.
- Connected the device to a tv via hdmi - the OS seems to take advantage of more screen, the app was in the top left corner, all visible.
When I switched back, nothing changed. I read somewhere it might help to change the screen for a moment. Well, it didn’t for me.
So the questions are:
- Is this a known bug?
- Is there a quick way to solve it?
- If there isn’t, where does the game keep the saved state? I think of reimaging the SD card, but I pretty much must keep the save game data. I’m an IT guy with some limited knowledge about Linux machines. If need be, I can attach keyboard to USB and run some mumbo jumbo commands via terminal. Or reimage the card using my Windoze laptop.
If out control station doesn’t get fixed soon, the Cheesteroid will surely smash Earth into oblivion. Help us save your backs, guys!
