Flashback: Play Chess for BlackBerry Tablet OS
As promised a quick flashback to tell you what happened to my Play Chess game for BlackBerry Tablet OS. This is the first of at least three flashbacks concerning the time the blog was offline due to the Anti-SOPA/PIPA and -ACTA protests.
Maybe some of you already realized it but the game is not available in the BlackBerry App World any more because I took it down. Some months ago I realized that there was a bug which prevented users to castle (thanks to a review). It was not hard to find the bug and release an update which got approved quite fast.
Unfortunately shortly after this release I found some other small moving problems and some bigger problems which prevented me from finally implement a computer opponent. That's why I decided to remove the game from the App World to prevent negative reviews. And to take a big step and implement everything from start using the completely new approach. This new implementation will be based on the Tablet OS NDK instead of the Adobe Air SDK.
Currently this new version of the game is a work in progress and not my first priority so please be patient.
