Hey, Great app I published mine on the app store successfully but Im getting messages saying people keep getting 4 letter words with a period (.) and that words keep repeating themselves over and over again.
Any way to fix these issues? I noticed some 4 letter words in the word list I removed them but Im still getting 4 letter words? They aren’t even words they are just random letters like I just got one H R D C .
Hi, if they get 4 letters that means there’s some 4-character word into the Words.plist file. Anyway, have you carefully tested the app before submitting it to the App Store? That’s something you must do in order to make sure everything works fine.Check your .plist file, word by word, and make sure all words have 5 characters. Cheers!
Yea, I found one left that I missed ( found 3 in total from your file ).
Anyway, now thats sorted anyway to stop the same words repeating? I just had the word FIBRE 3 times in a row.
How many words do you have into your .plist file? The app uses a random function to get random values for words, if they are a less than 100, it may happen to get a word called more than once from the random function in iOS.
I have 207 words.
Ok, anyway we cannot control a random function because it’s just a basic core iOS function, in poor words: the system “decides” what value/word to pick up, randomly, with the basic core function called arc4random().Cheers!
Isn’t there some way or formula we can put into place to ensure that the same word is picked only once until all other words have been used up? Can’t you change the arc4random() into something else whereby it remains random enough or perhaps another option where it actually goes one by one. It’s actually easier to setup a list which goes one by one rather than random since as the host developer / game host – there’s nothing wrong with us knowing the list as long as the customer / gamer does not? I am asking this because I was about to buy the game/app before I read this last issue with lukemul69 and I think it’s genuine enough. I would have hated if the game suddenly spit the same word repeatedly and random thrice in a row.
Hi, we’re currently on vacation, we’ll see what we can do on the next year, anyway there are a lot of words that can be scrambled more than once (ex. COATS, COAST, TACOS), so it may happen that a word comes up twice since it has 3 ways to be guessed.
Fair enough. If I bought it today, would you still be offering support or are you completely on vacation and better to buy it once you guys are back, as I do foresee (hope not) some confusion one we start looking at the code. Will this work on XCODE 7.x (latest). I assume it is a yes though. Also what about the scoring pattern, etc. Does it support ios 9 ? Finally can the time limit be changed from xx seconds to complete the puzzle to xx+ seconds? I am planning to buy this today itself if it makes sense to me and seems to work easy as ever. Since Apple Store is down for publishing apps from tomorrow onwards, its either today or after the Xmas break! Thanks
We’re off until Jan 2nd 2016, so we can’t offer support, anyway the User Guide attached to the package explains what you have to do and how to customize the game timer, words, etc. You need the latest version of XCode and this game is compatible with iOS8.x and above.
Last question can the fiver be changed to a “four”, “sixer” or something else or is it limited to just 5. Thanks for your almost instant replies! Appreciated. Enjoy your long weekend
It is limited to 5-letter words. Cheers!
Possible to alter the code so it would allow for more random number of letters? So you could have a 3 letter word, 4 letter word, 5 letter word ,etc?
That would require a lot of work, from the code to the UI, you may do that if you’re an experienced developer, we have no plans to edit this game with words different than 5-letter ones. Cheers!
What is the ipa size for app store? I am getting export with 30+mb. Is there something wrong?
for iOS apps it can be even 1 GB, don’t worry for the size of your ipa
I have this problem(s) with the #selector – what to do? It’s in gameboard.swift and it’s Xcode 7.2.1
simply update your Xcode to 7.3, use always the latest version of Xcode
Thank you for very quick answer! Have a nice day
you too, happy easter and don’t forget to rate this app on your Downloads page
Does this code work with the iPhone 6?
It’s Universal, it works on all iPhones and iPads.
Love the code but sometimes although I have added the word to the plist the word wont work when playing. Ever experienced an error like this?
The letters will show up but when I type the word in it doesn’t register as a correct word.
Hi, we never experienced a similar issue, is it possible to see a video of your issue, along with the word(s) you set in your plist file?
Sure here is a link to videos and the plist file: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1hrgydgf19mp4qd/AAB6XkC9U65AMmPMgzzJB9FWa?dl=0
When I lose I try to enter the word “TAMES” but it doesn’t register. And as you can see in the second video and the plist file the word is there
That’s because you’re not allowed to place more than 3 words in a row, it’s how the code has been written, it supports up to 3 different anagrams/row in the .plist file. We suggest you to remove all the words that can make more than 3 anagrams so the players will not experience such issue.
support arabic like wordyz app?
Hi, no RTL support, sorry, the UI goes from left to right only.
no i mean arabic letters not rtl
no, i mean arabic letters not rtl
Oh then yes, you can set those characters, just find the right font that supports them (the one in the demo app is not compatible with arabic fonts).
Hi, i purchased your apps. very nice. but i would like to ask whether can i make the words undo if i put the wrong words setup. Currently i need to fill up every words to make the words undo by itself. Can it be done by each words to undo ?
FIVES has already an undo function, you can invoke it by shaking your device and all letters will go back to the center. Cheers!
Thank you for your fast response. I didnt notice about that features Currently I want to change the app name and change the logo of the apss. Can u help me guide on that ? Sorry because I’m not very familiar on customizing these
The User guide explains where to change the app’s name in the very beginning, and for the icons, just make your own png images and replace the icons into AppIcon folder in Images.xcassets folder. Access that folder and check all the icons in there, so you’ll see what size they have and make your own ones with Photoshop
ohh regarding changing the image i might understand but changin the apps name is quite confusing. I try to change already and suddenly it shows errors if i try to run it
You just have to double click slowly on the Fives name underneath TARGET, and rename it as you wish. that’s all, no confusing stuff at all, the User Guide has a clear screenshot that shows it
Hi thank you i have solved it. May i ask you on how to add sound or music within the game ? like ticking clock while player playing the game
you’re welcome, that’s hard to explain by comments, we may do that for you as an extra customization job, you may contact us ny our profile’s contact form and we’ll get back to you asap
I see. I will get back to you on that. I have change the image but the logo still show the old one. Can i know which image should i change ? I’m using simulator for iphone4s
What image have you changed? Check the AppIcon folder into Images.xcassets and make sure you’ve changed the right png icons.
yes i change at the appicon folder. but because there are several image with different sizes. I didnt know which one should i change . I did change one of it but seem it is not affected
You have to change them all
Can i use same size ? or should i make each of it diff size ?
No, you must make all different sized icons, as the project is, otherwise it won’t work, that’s why we’ve made all the necessary icons. Please take some time to read Apple documentation too, so you’ll get more into iOS development: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/UserExperience/Conceptual/MobileHIG/IconMatrix.html
Hi thank you, may i ask you how to change the base colour of the interface as the one I attached ? The red like orange base colour https://www.dropbox.com/s/slvdruat5ufpaf2/Simulator%20Screen%20Shot%2031%20May%202016%2C%2012.17.06%20PM.png?dl=0
It’s the background color of the main View, select that background and use the inspector panel on the right side of the Xcode window: http://s33.postimg.org/wh9kk3bsf/Screen_Shot_2016_06_01_at_14_55_24.png
how can i add my simulator as test device so as to show admob test ads ?
thanks anyway got it :
request.testDevices = [ kGADSimulatorID ];
Another question Please,
how to get more time for gameover, i mean give about 20 secondes to player to get the right word ?
timer = NSTimer.scheduledTimerWithTimeInterval(0.05, target: self, selector: #selector(updateTimer), userInfo: nil, repeats: true)
is there a way to get more than 3 words in line in the WordsList.plist?
there is some words that have more than 3 combination
which part of the code i have to change please ?
Hi, no it’s not possible, the app can support 3 words max.
I launch the game on my iPhone 5c and it crashes as soon as the letters appear with error “fatal error: unexpectedly found nil while unwrapping an Optional value”
Sorry it was the leaderboard, it is a good idea to add the leaderboard that you create before running the game on your device.
Everything good but the Share button is not sending the link to the app store, where do I put my app store link in?
Also can’t run in simulator app freezes at splash screen, can’t take screenshots.
you may take a screenshot of your xcode window with the console log opened in order for us to see what it says, you’ve probably messed up something in the code, also are you using xcode 7.3?
let messageStr = "\(firstStr) \(bestScore), \(secondStr) on YOUR_LINK_HERE"
That line does not exist, in fact, searching the entire source code “YOUR_LINK_HERE” does not exist.
let messageStr = "\(firstStr) \(bestScore), \(secondStr)"
you must search for “messageStr”
Thank you all fixed and submitted
perfect, don’t forget to rate this app on your Downloads page
Does it support Arabic language ? if not can I add it from code ?
no, sorry, we’re not experienced with Arabic language
