I know the flowjam is going on and I wanted to work on it some at school, since I have a lot of free time recently, but when I do the sprite editor bugs out so much. Which this doesn’t happen at all with other devices, but on my school iPad I can’t hardly work on anything.
Some glitches and bugs include:
- Deleting and replacing color when using the fill tool
- Browser crashing and deleting progress
- Randomly deleting the entire sprite
(Which when this happens I’m forced to reload the page or close the tab so my progress doesn’t save as the sprite being deleted)
- When working on an object with animations, it deletes all animations attached to said object.
- Sometimes the game doesn’t even load the sprites in (Even if I worked on them on a separate device.)
And there are many more bugs I’ve noticed but failed to list. This all only happens on my iPad and I think it might generally be a browser issue, but I’ve tried working on this on Safari and google and I think I got pretty similar results.
@grazer I have a short 5 minute video of me literally encounter half of these in a single turn and although you might be able to reproduce these bugs, but sure enough they happen to me every 30 seconds or something. I would send the video, but the forums don’t support raw film like that so it might have to be by email or by discord later when I get home.
A solution is to probably bring my home computer to school, but I don’t need the extra bulk or weight in my bag and I’m not allowed to use it in half of my classes. I know this isn’t much of an issue since I can still work on my game at home, but making sprites is such a serious pain and although I haven’t seen any issues regarding code yet, but it has happened before where switches or specific stuff don’t load right.
This happened a while back ago, at least a month and completely destroyed my tower defense game which is why I kinda quit flowlab for a bit and now that I know how to prevent some specific issues, it still corrupts any sprite I open in the editor and I don’t want to accidentally delete half by game just by opening up the sprite editor.
Although I don’t know if its some security thing my school has on the iPad, the internet, or just a browser issue, but I would great fully appreciate if there was some sort of patch that could be used to solve these issues. Like I said before, these might not even be a flowlab issue and on my school’s poor choice. But I figured I would say something to make sure.
