Darts Beta Winding Down

The title says it all, but you still have time to weigh in, especially if there’s something still broken!  Thanks a bunch to everyone that participated.

Otherwise, just wait until sometime next week, we will be publishing our Android 4 version.  If you don’t have Android 4, you won’t be offered an update from Google Play.  We will see you on the other side….

Darts Scorecard Beta

If you want to participate in the Darts Scorecard Beta, just join the Google Group at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/darts-scorecard.

Once you are joined, you can access the download link from your device at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.escapellc.CricketScorecard.

You can go to the Gallery or our previous post for updated screens.

Thanks in Advance, and don’t miss out on your chance to provide us with valuable feedback!

Darts Scorecard Beta Changes

The first bit of welcomed news is full integration with the Android Action Bar, no more backward compatibility hacks!  We have also moved all of the separate screens (Scoresheet, Stats, etc.) into one screen, thanks to fragments.

The only bad news here is for older devices, they are not getting any updates, sorry.

Setup

There is now an opening setup screen with all the settings available at once.  The defaults are taken from the Settings the first time you open.  You also return to this screen after every Game Over.

Since you can access all the settings at once, the other modal dialogs are gone, and the associated clutter in the menu.

Gameplay

The first thing to notice is all the visual effects (i.e. gradients) are gone!  Everything uses a dark color scheme.

For all players, the game-level stat display has been moved to above the round display on portrait orientation.  You now get two rows of stats along the bottom edge.  For landscape orientation, similar tweaks but in the opposite direction.

For x01 players the Dartboard View UI has been enhanced with haptic feedback and sound effects, just like other system UI have.

For Cricket players we have inverted the chalks to go with the dark background.

Scoresheet

No changes here other than removal of visual effects.

Stats Gallery

No changes here other than removal of visual effects.

Android 4 Status Update

Things are moving right along and we have two reworks in progress: both Feed Farmer and Darts Scorecard are up first for the Android 4 treatment!

We are making full use of the Action Bar and other features, and these will hopefully make the UIs work even better for everyone.

If you are excited for some Eye Candy, we have posted some screens in the corresponding Gallery sections.
