Cheers niantic for the heads up that you're going to induce seizures...

Warning for everyone else, current media dropping might be harmful if you do suffer from epilepsy.

    Did nobody at Niantic even consider a warning for people with photosensitive epilepsy?

  • This is an issue that might prevent agents in my local community from playing Ingress. A hackable media does not need to have visual effects that make others ill.

  • I'd be shocked if they did, they frequently (as a company in general) don't consider a lot of things that are significantly more common (and common sense) when coming up with ideas and changes as it has been.

  • @NianticBrian thank you for the quick action.

  • @NianticBrian Thank you for the quick action too. And feedback: It should be more slowly animation. For example, 6 seconds changing/switching window.

  • Have there been any additional efforts to eliminate the problematic aspects of the UI? In addition to the seizure-inducing animations, the same items are causing significant eye strain and triggering migraines.

    while I understand that not everyone hates these animations, it seems that there aren’t really many who love them so much they’d be upset versus the people that literally cannot enjoy the game because of them.

    These graphic and animation related issues were reported so long ago at this point, it’s hard to have hope they will ever be addressed. Please let us know if this is something anywhere on the list of priority items or if we should stop wasting forum space and just move on to other games.

    This would be an issue for Niantic to really look into as they go forward with the Niantic Real World Platform. Game accessibility and compliance to various entities like Section 508, W3C, WCAG, and ADA (not the computer obviously) have become universal. I don't see why at least having a less intensive version of the scanner is at the minimum a medium priority.
