Bugs! / PS Vita - Cannot Enter Palace when using REMOTE PLAY
« on: March 18, 2018, 10:09:30 AM »
A fellow Armellian plays Armello on their PS Vita, using the remote play feature to play the game running on their PS4. He does not have an account, so I offered to squeak for him here...

The Vita's "remote play" feature allows, for all intents and purposes, someone to play a PS4 game streamed to a user's PS Vita console. Only a moderately robust internet connection is required. The game itself should not require extra knowledge or code to be aware of this - the built-in capability works beautifully as designed.

HERE'S THE BUG(S): A player using the PS Vita remote play feature is unable to enter the palace. When a palace tile is selected the choices "enter the palace" and "do not enter" are not offered with X and O button prompts (such as when playing on the PS4) but with blue rectangles with yellow borders with the text inside... EXACTLY as it appears in the PC version! All of a sudden the game now expects us to "click" the choice we want! Um... PS4 duh... no mouse!

I have remote played on my own Vita to test this, and what he describes is true. I suspect some ancient code left in your game realizes a touch screen exists (such as on the Vita) and somehow has defaulted to a click-based input for this ONE QUESTION! And no, touching the screen did not allow me to choose either, nothing worked at all. The game is basically over at that point, for you cannot enter the palace, and you cannot say you will not.

Another BUG I noticed via remote play (perhaps another clue to the problem) is while the L3 prompt (to bring up speech bubbles) is shown, the R3 prompt (to bring up the log) is missing. Only a spade icon appears there (such as on PC). Now the L2 / R2 / L3 / R3 buttons are remapped to quadrants of the Vita's rear touch pad for remote play, and yes, those do work. A "show my touches" feature on the Vita does I was touching the area where R3 should be.

Any ideas what is going on? This fellow is being driven mad by this bug.

General Discussion / Armello - Deluxe Bundle on PS4

"Get all major Armello DLC in one place and at a special discount with the Armello - Deluxe Bundle!"

Found this on the PlayStation store today for $53.49 Canadian dollars. It does not specify what DLC is actually included, but an online search revealed this includes the Base Game, Usurpers, Bandits, and Seasons packs.

Purchased seperately, the prices of the Base Game ($19.99), Usurpers ($13.49), Bandits ($13.49), and Seasons ($6.99) add up to a grand total of $53.96 Canadian, for a total savings of only 47 cents!

I already own the game, the bandit clan, and a certain moustached rat, so this bundle is obviously not meant for me. But can you help explain the pricing here, and if this "special discount" is working as intended?
