Hi to all,
it's about time to release my new GSen-controlled game...



This game is about gravity and balls. With the movement of your hand (left/right tilting) you control the paddle that explodes the balls. Tilting up and down changes the gravitational force applied to the balls. This way you can accelerate them, slow them down or even make them fly to heaven again...



Let me know about ideas, bugs or improvements!

*change log*

v 1.00
*added native WVGA support for Touch HD
*better response of the paddle to movements
*all new graphics and finger friendly user interface

v 0.93
*fixed backlight dimming while playing game

v 0.92 initial release

If you like GravityBalls consider a donation and buy me a beer.

I havenít tried or downloaded the app yet but if the developer looks through Klaxon's source code it shows a method of preventing the backlight from turning off while the app is running.

Hope that helps, now to give this game a try...

Yes, download if you don't have it already, called Diamond Config. v3.3. Here you can do a lot more than just tweaking Gsensor polling.

I will look into this for next version of GravityBalls. It's not as easy as copy&paste from Klaxon's source because I don't use the .Net CF. GravityBalls was made using PPL (Pocket Programming Language).

I'm afraid tweaking the GSensor polling won't help here. I poll for the data 10 times per second; if I try shorter intervalls the GSen-data freezes and becomes kind of static. I heard other programmers had the same problem, even though with the "native" .net SDK for the GSen the polling intervalls might go down to about every 32ms polling and still workin fine.
It somehow depends on the general CPU usage of your device in the moment of polling - and GravityBalls really graps every CPU-cycle it can
