Any idea about touch screen controls for windows?

Post by reddragon72 » 05 Jun 2019, 22:42

So I am playing on Android and PC and I bought a Surface Go.
It is running the game just fine, around what Android does, but I have not found touch controls for the Windows version.

Any ideas?

The Android port hasn't been merged into the main project yet, so there's not currently a way to get its on-screen controls in a non-Android build. It'll probably happen eventually.

The touch controls are basically android widgets laid over over the opengl rendering context; written in kotlin using Android APIs. Unfortunately it also means that there's not a lot of code that could be reused for other platforms.
