Higher help for cell HTML video games & extra

Better support for mobile HTML games & more

I’ve a confession to make, I simply purchased my first (actual) smartphone only a
few weeks in the past. Once we initially added help for cell net on itch.io I did
it with Chrome’s cellphone emulator and hoped for the perfect. It appeared to work okay,
however now with precise {hardware} I’m pleasantly shocked about how usable issues are.
For instance, searching Android video games,
downloading, and putting in an APK works fairly effectively.

Help was solely partial although, so I’ve made a bunch of recent enhancements for
utilizing itch.io in your cellphone’s browser. It’s not the whole lot, however we’re effectively on
our method there.

Enhancements to challenge pages

Once we initially launched cell net help for sport
pages
,
we excluded some pages as a result of sure plugins wouldn’t run or the sport’s
viewport didn’t know easy methods to scale. Beginning now, all challenge pages will
load appropriately on cell
. If one thing doesn’t match or run we cover it with
a warning. This works higher since folks can now simply add your sport to a
assortment to play once they’re again at their laptop.

All HTML5 video games at the moment are click on to
play
when
loaded on a cellphone. This could stop any useful resource intensive video games from
lagging the browser when the web page first hundreds. Moreover, video games will now
enter full display by default, and lock orientation primarily based on the dimension of
the sport. Right here’s a fast demo:

The Cellular pleasant possibility for HTML video games is extra essential than ever. When
unselected we’ll present a warning on the sport’s web page for telephones in regards to the
potential incompatibility. It’s nonetheless potential to try to run the sport
anyway.

Right here’s what the warning seems like:

Likewise, Flash video games will present the same warning when the Flash participant is just not
out there.

As a result of video games solely run in fullscreen on telephones, we’ve eliminated the sport
viewport resizing code we beforehand had, it’s significantly better this fashion!

Please solely use the Cellular pleasant possibility in case your HTML5 sport is examined to
work on telephones, this contains having the ability to resize to the viewport and deal with
contact enter. Sorry, this doesn’t embody Unity HTML5 video games. We’ll be updating
incorrectly labeled pages the place acceptable.

You may browse all video games which are marked as Cellular
pleasant
on our new filter web page.
When you come throughout one thing that’s not appropriately labeled, use the report
hyperlink on the underside of the web page to make itch.io higher for everybody!

We hope to have all pages engaged on telephones. When you’re utilizing customized
CSS
, please confirm that there
aren’t any incompatible adjustments.

A greater cell checkout

Supporting creators is now easy to do in case you’re out and about (or laying in
mattress). The checkout screens at the moment are optimized for telephones, all the best way to the
obtain display. This works particularly effectively in case you’ve purchased one thing on
Android with an APK file, it’s straightforward to seize it and begin taking part in.

Although I typed in a bank card on this instance, utilizing a saved credit score
card
works nice as effectively.

Much more pages with cell help

A handful of various different pages at the moment are pleasant to make use of together with your cellphone. The
full listing contains: your library, jam calendar, searching for bundles, your
feed
, really helpful video games, downloading challenge recordsdata, and downloading a bundle.
And we’ve pushed out many smaller updates to present pages.

If there’s a specific web page we haven’t up to date but, please say so within the
feedback so we are able to prioritize it for future updates.

Take pleasure in!
