Yes, Gayloft changed the DeviceConfig.xml so that modding it has no effect anymore (only in the 1.0.5)
If you wish to change craphics you have to mod the DeviceProfile.xml - file
you can find it here:
Android//obb/com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftA7HM / DeviceProfile.xml
I had a problem finding the file with my PC and the only way i found it was by using an android filemanager app on my Nexus 7 :silly:
IMPORTANT : remember to first make a backup of the DeviceProfile.xml or you might have to download the whole game again...
btw i noticed that on the 1.0.4 version the game was runnning on 60 fps, but on the 1.0.5 was only on 20 fps... (at least on my nexus 7)
! that sucks !
I modified it but it is very slow! The game is far too slow and very long loading screen, heavy menus. Pouf. I turn to the standard configuration.
