QONQR black

32 posts in this topic

QONQR black is now available for Windows Phone. Android and iPhone should hopefully complete development in the next week or two.

At the moment we see that all our WP7 devices receive a download error when trying to get the app from the store, but the app has worked for all our WP8 devices. Download issues are not uncommon, but if it doesn't auto-resolve soon, we will contact Microsoft.

Woo! I looked for it last night but didn't see it. (WP7) Look forward to having it on Android too!

I realize its counterintuitive based on the name, but SOME color might be useful. our minds recognize the colors.. of faction symbols (even just the fonts having appropriate colors) and wouldnt mind terribly colored deployment buttons for faster recognition

I have one request for QONQR black: Please add an Atlantis shortcut to the zones list? With the zones named after different players and switching between multiple zones it is somewhat unsuitable for playing Atlantis.

Otherwise, it works fantastic on my old slow device!

For sure, what Qonqr black lacks in visual appeal it more than makes up for in usability. Top marks for the devs on this slimmed down version. :-D

Having a bit of a play with it now... Noticed the zone ranges were a bit out from one app to the other (6km away on black but showing as 9km away on full app for one zone), and just froze trying to find an uncontrolled zone (restarted phone just now to recover from it) and would be nice if the wire didn't redirect to the website and actually listed the zones recently taken so that I can re-acquire them via the app as can't do this from the website. Otherwise seems pretty kewl,, and especially like how it lets you designate the range/distance to display :) Will definitely be using it to expand my territory and will consider it for 'on the road' use when I am away from my charger :D

Personally I like this black edition very much. Lightweight, fast and dark. I have a question for the devs. Is it also a data saver? If so, I think it's a must to use it when not on wi-fi.

When will the android version be out? Why not just hold on to WP, IOS, and Android Black versions until they were all ready? Then have a major release post that everyone could enjoy. If they are only 1 to 2 weeks out, why not wait. Maybe we could get rid of Swarm, Legion, and Faceless and have factions based on the Scope's 3 different operating systems :) Regardless.....looking forward to the Black version.

It's a buggy crash monster on my Lumia 920\ATT running WP8.1 Update 1. I can't even get it to recognize that it's already logged in, before it tells me it can't login, in perpetuity.

I think the whole game would be heavily biased if it were OS-based factions, as I would believe that IOS & Android (not sure which is leading at the moment) have been dominating the market for quite sometime... It would also take away the ability to choose your faction based on your own ideals etc. Imagine being locked into a faction who's principles you don't agree with :/ Love that you thought outside the box tho :)

Well, I have been using Black exclusively for just over a week now.

Likes:

* That it shows my inventory for missiles etc at the launch screen (I now stock up while my scope cools down, instead of finding out when I try to launch that I am low).

* Definitely feel that it launches faster and nice that all attacks are on one screen so no need to switch between the different bot groups.

* I like that the depot links to the website, buying in bulk is way easier and alot nicer on the thumb than the 'one press, one unit' buying system in the flash version.

* Also like that the current range to zone is shown from the launch screen. Great for those situations where you are just on the edge of range for an attack and moving around the house etc makes all the difference.

* Wonderful how the 'Zones' screen lets you filter by proximity, and that it has the 3 different sorting modes (ABC, distance, and faction).

Dislikes:

* It would be nice if the proximity filter I just mentioned was a proper full scroll bar segmented into 'Km/Mile' increments and not segmented into the 'Adjacent, Medium, Wide, Maximum' ranges as it is hard to filter to the ranges of specific attacks I wish to use. Maybe even segmented to the different attack ranges would be more useful?

* Could really use a refresh button on the main launch screen. The leaderboard and zones screens have it but not the most viewed screen.

* As mentioned earlier, the wire should really be integrated, even if it is just a colourless version of the full scope one. The way the wire on portal displays on my Lumia 800 I end up scrolling forever just to find my earlier messages. The portal also gives no easy way to manage zone takeover notifications (takes too long, always asks me to login, I've lost the ability to launch an immediate counter attack from the message, and it ends up being quicker and easier to go into the full scope and delete messages in there, possibly ??? using less data to do so than a continually refreshing browser page)

* Not a biggie and this is more of a personal preference one for me: Would be nice to have my Qredits balance (maybe above the energy balance location?) displayed on the launch screen. I find myself always looking expecting to find it. I think it's because I want to have an overview of my balance while using ordinance attacks... For instance, I don't go so heavy with my Plasma Beam when I know my credits are low and I need to conserve them for taking out enemy Seekers before sending my Shockwave attacks in)

Hope this helps Silver... Any questions or feedback I'm more than happy to chat :)

What is the status of Qonqr Black for Android and IOS? It has been been almost 4 weeks and no update. I am sure the dev are busy coding/testing, but we were told a 1 to 2 week window. Any updates on why it is taking longer and when we can expect it would be great. Personally, I don't really care, but my battery was asking about this today :)

It's now the only place you can register you displeasure about the whole problem of hypercubers.  Any posts related to this issue, in the forum, stands a good chance of being considered 'filth' , an employee of Qonqr LLC term, and deleted.

Probably as this one could be.

This is completely untrue. If you start attacking UKintel or he starts attacking you, or anyone else for that matter, and it gets to a level we feel is "filth" then it may be removed by Silver or by myself.

Reinstate the thread then.  Let others decide if it's filth.  Maybe it just upset one of your biggest spenders too much.  You would also need to define the exact level of 'filth' that you would tolerate.  You guys were happy to let the old forum turn into spam heaven with posted links to actual 'filth' for months and months so it's pretty hypocritical to suddenly remove threads you consider 'filth', just to appease a heavy spender. I don't recall any actual 'filth'  in the thread.

Forum dictatorship isn't the first hypocritical tightrope you guys have walked.

Again, I didn't remove it. Silver did. If he doesn't want porn and hate speech on his forums, that should be his right. Also, no one reported the thread, not one single person. Silver removed it because we were going through and cleaning up all the porn and stumbled across the stuff that was in the thread. Also, we didn't let it go for months and months because we didn't see it and didn't care, it was because the forums admin side was broken and we ended up having to upgrade to fix (you may notice it now looks different).

How does a forum get broken? If my car breaks, I fix it so can use it as soon as I can.

I thought it was a player's forum. Obviously wrong!

I doubt it was 'stumbled across' it was the most read thread for months. That just shows the forums were ignored by you guys.

DA is generally hated in the UK so how can you expect it not to be mentioned!

  If no one reported it and there was no swearing what exactly was the issue?  Players **** about other players has always been in the forum.

Maybe the forum should be completely wiped out and started fresh with people who care about each other's thin skin.
