Ingress 2.56.2 Release Notes
NianticOfficial Niantic › admin
This update includes bug fixes as well as subtle visual refreshes, including an updated Niantic logo on app start and inventory count on Map Screen.
• Fixed: Ghost Portals should not appear on Map Screen when a Beacon or Fireworks are used.
ACQUIRE button is disabled when selecting a dropped item out of range.
• Fixed: Use English-only for
ALL TIME time span when copying Agent Stats to clipboard.
• Fixed: Tapping
Send Message in Remote Portal View no longer causes a softlock.
• Fixed: On Cross-Faction Chat, sending a message to the same Faction keeps you on the current tab.
• Fixed: On Chat, can add multiple @mentions to a message by tapping an Agent’s codename and choosing
Was hoping to see comm bug jump fixed and the link bug also, guess we have to wait longer.
Can we fix COMM PLEASE????? It's been literally more than a year for COMM scroll bugs!!
subtle visual refreshes, including ... inventory count on Map Screen.
I wonder if we've having subscriptions soon, seeing as they were thought to increase inventory capacity and the refresh makes it so that you can see your inventory capacity.
Since the 60FPS mode is now acknowledged,
༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Give ingame language selection
but nice fixes at least.
another boring update in style, we fixed some old bugs and added a bunch of new bugs. don't be surprised why the community is shrinking.
No screen shots?
Seems to be cosmetic update.
Fixed: ACQUIRE button is disabled when selecting a dropped item out of range.
Yay! This has been a pain for so long
We're still working to fix COMM so it loads the most recent message first, and also doesn't jump while you're reading status updates. One of the challenges fixing this is because the behavior depends on how many status updates are coming in. If COMM is loading the oldest message first, then expanding the distance range (for example, to 100km or 200km) may force COMM to load the most recent message first (the bottom of the Activities or Alerts feed) until this is fixed.
@Erifneerg the visual refresh includes the updated Niantic branding:
And a small tweak to the inventory display on Map Screen next to the Main Menu button:
• Fixed: Use English-only for
ALL TIMEtime span when copying Agent Stats to clipboard.
LIKE for this.
but need to wait previous version phase out, all people get updated, then I can implement the REGEX check on our IFS stat submission form.
Don't like the colour scheme of the item quantity UI, please change this to white/light gray
What is this link? I only scan portals, u never linked. Is it some gameplay mechanic??
@NianticBrian as said in this post, to me too this purple in inventory count doesn't look good. There's no this kind of purple color on the screen elsewhere so it doesn't match anything. Please change it to white, light gray, or more blue-ish color.
link portals together, sometimes the scanner says no link available when there should be, only option is force restart which is very annoying since i must do this daily several times to throw links and field portals and this bug has been reported a milion times now... a gameplay feature shouldnt be this broken for so long imo.
Glad to see that the COMMS fix with the jumping is still on the agenda.
I wonder if the small visual update for inventory is linked to an updated inventory count for whatever the VIP Ingress subscription is going to be.
@NianticBrian this whole comm scroll issue was working super stable with the initial Prime releases, why did you guys actually change things and introduce such a massive bug in the first place, when it now is super hard to fix it?
To me this simply feels like: "dear users eat it or leave it".
And to me, all these useless and even irrelevant features you are trying to introduce for your platform (e.g. this annoying portal scan ****, that now even takes 15 (!!!) seconds) that don't bring any value for the game play, are just prove, that you don't care about users at all.
Solve the game relevant issues listed below (in the pipeline for more than a year now) or lose your users in masses (as happening already):
- linking bug (impossible to link, although link channel is free, portal can still support outgoing links and target portal key is available)
- activities tab of comm scrolls automatically somewhere (either start or end after n seconds), which makes it impossible to scan the content
One of the challenges fixing this is because the behavior depends on how many status updates are coming in.
I don't understand this statement. There is no quantity of entries being loaded that makes it acceptable to jump to the opposite end of the list from what is desired, which is what everyone is complaining about.
Starting from the main map screen, we have two ways of opening the Activities log:
In case (1), take me to the newest entry in the Activities log. I saw something interesting in that preview; show it to me in context. (Ignore the issue where the preview lags behind reality.)
In case (2), the reasonable options are more varied. The newest entry in the Activities log is a fine option. The newest entry in the last COMM tab I happened to look at (Activities, Alerts, or Chat) is also a fine option. The exact entry I happened to be looking at the last time I was viewing a COMM tab might also be a fine option.
Now, suppose I'm looking at the Activities log:
Now, suppose I tap into a portal (via it's mini-photo) or decide to message an agent (via tapping on their name). When I return to the Activities log, by backing out of the various screens, I expect to be viewing the same entry that I was viewing previously — unless I was viewing the most recent entry, in which case, be consistent with previous bullet points.
Now, suppose I change the range filter. I'm asking that Activities log be reloaded in its entirety. The reasonable place to start me out at is at the newest entry. This is the same as changing the zoom setting out on the Intel Map.
OK I got it. Yes and it requires a true QA for Ingress :D
@NianticBrian where update 2.56? 🤷🤷🤷
And if you find the time, please pop into the iOS 14 debacle thread and give us the long overdue (6!!!! Days?!) update in regards to the infractions all of us got for upgrading to iOS 14 after NIA told us it's compatible? We are your beta testers, the least you can do is not straight up ignore us.
has anyone got the new update, should it take days for it to reach us in android store?
If my experience is any indication, multiple days to a week is a fairly typical wait time from announcement to being able to download the new version from the Play Store. I assume that Niantic is doing some sort of staged rollout.
Update was release for iOS in the AppStore yesterday.
It's been 4 days since the announcement, but no update for anyone on android yet. Hello?
but not for Android🤷🤷🤷
Nia😁😁 20k players, but update roll out as for 20m🤷🤷
Есть apk у кого-то? Ник в Телеге такой же😁
