Apple testing. For how long will they test on ipad1?
I'm trying to create a game and probably this will be finished between genuary/march 2013.
Obviously i'm trying to make it run well on every device but i've seen that it is going to be a little more heavy than i tought.
In the case it won't work very well on ipad1 is there the possibility to publish it?
Will apple continue to ask good performance for the ipad1 as a requirement?
Is there any news about it?
Thank you, i followed those threads yet.
I know that i can "adjust" the settings to make the game work on the ipad1 but probably it will looks really bad for example if i won't be able to use the fog or if i'll need to use some low settings, so i just would like to know if apple will demand good performance on ipad1 even if it is out of production.
If you don't want to include the iPad1 you can open iphonepackager and click edit info.plist overrides to add device restrictions and required os version
Apple documentation will say what there requirements are
My App wan't rejected for abyssmal perfomance on the iPad 1, viktorns App was rejected for bad performance on the iPad 1. There's no way to tell for sure. If you release an App that supports the iPad 1 you better expect they might test it on it.
Yes i know, i have problems with the ram used by the game now. I will try to reduce it (of at least 100 mb, mission impossible).
I hope they will stop testing on ipad1 soon because it is really limitative for games.
I used the memleakcheck command and i've seen that the problem comes from a wrong settings of the game. Now i use about 271 mb of ram on ipad2 but i have stuff like the animset (VH_Cicada.Anims.AT_VH_Cicada) loaded and a lot of other things not related with my game.
Probably doing the package correctly will decrease the memory usage...i hope.
If it won't work on iPad 1, why don't you disable the game for it? Do you want to trick people to buy it, even thought it won't work?
Hmm no, i didn't say that. I said that i'm worried because my game can run bad on that device.
I don't think it is possible to disable the ipad1, i am an apple developer and for my experience you can just enable/disable the family, so you can decide to disable the iphone or ipad family, not just one device.

I did that with my first app because I didn't want people to have any issues with it, so its definitely possible..This was already suggested to you several posts back !
