You need to do the same force updates as in PoGo. Seriously.
Most of portals in my area are either graffitis or buildings (government, churchs) or playground/public gyms. Are those kinds supposed to be scanned too? Some are impossible to walk over it (360) and playground will probably end with a weird results...
I guess I will never be able to sort keys by name again....
Or play on a phone w/o magnetometer.
Or read the low contrast text.
It's working fine for me. What language you're using?
And speaking of languages: when the translation will be finished? There's still many things appearing in English only during gameplay. My main concern are the glyphs, since they have a important role and some players are unable to understand the messages, caming up with funny names to memorize instead of just understand what they're saying.
Now that we have portal scanning, would it be too much to ask to FINALLY fix the scaling of portal photos? This is some really basic stuff to code you know, and some of us actually make an effort to take nice looking photos to the portals we submit.
Just look at how vertically (bad) or horizontally (terrible!) oriented portal photos are scaled when viewed through keys. Currently the only way to see portal photos correctly is through Intel or Wayfarer nominations (which is rather subjective!).
@NianticBrian seriously it’s an hour’s effort for any programmer but would mean a lot to the look and feel of Ingress Prime and especially everyone who wants to take good looking portal photos.
Still showing old link to mission creator.
First time worked well on my old Moto xt1550 with stock Android 6,then began to stuck and FC (now installed 2.40 there,the latest stable build for that phone). Other phones work without problem. And,some new animation of gathered items,nice.
@daawg can you confirm what you mean by scaling Portal photos when viewing through Portal Keys? Do you mean the auto crop/resize of the Portal photo thumbnails, the byte size of the Portal photos, or something else?
@NianticBrian Now that your team and @NianticCasey have hopefully fixed the crashing issue can you and @ofer2 continue to look into my issue Please ???
Portrait pictures got cut on top and bottom to look life a landscape/widescreen. Since old scanner used crop bars on keys, that wasn't a big problem because we were seeing all the picture, but resized and with black bars. But prime just cut it, and mostly of old pictures are off-center and most of new submission are still on portrait mode. The key view got cropped, but when we try to click the picture to see it in full screen isn't show it's but a zoomed in, with all sides a bit cropped.
Landscape pictures aren't damaged for key view, but if try to see the full picture it got completely zoomed and cropped.
Clicking the key pictures, it get zoomed in and cropped again:
It's impossible to see the original picture in-game.
Now with a landscape picture.
Original that I sent above.
The key view:
And finally the zoomed, by clicking the key pictures:
It got cropped on the sides and zoomed in.
I'm already used on how it's works, so I don't mind it anymore. But would be nice to have a way to do little edits on the picture before submitting, to align it with the keys size (like when we are changing the profile picture of most social media) .
Thank you! I really hope it fixes my issue. I just checked the play store but the new version isn't live yet for me. (Fingers crossed) lol
Here is a good picture. The portal is the stone. But look how the key view is:
Just woods. I solve that by almost always taking portrait mode, but using grids and centering the object on the middle:
Even zoomed in, won't loose much.
@NianticBrian Please tell us if Portal Scanning help igress Prime and way.
It probably isn't working fine for you, but I'm guessing you don't recharge a lot of portals so it looks fine because you didn't trigger the bug yet.
@NianticBrian No message about portal scanning are complete upliading. Please fix it soon. Now i dont know if my portal scanning are uploading.
I'm running Android 5.1 on a ZTE Warp Elite. In the App Store, it says I have installed the 2-43-3 version. It's still crashing on me, and not loading.
Actually I forgot to came here earlier. I just noticed it today, sometimes some keys do not show up in the list, at least not where it should be. But most of them are correct for me.
Did not fix the issue. Still stuck on Niantic loading screen. Running Android 6. Uninstalled and reinstalled. No go.
Any update for TWRP bug?
Not a bug. As designed.
Do you need gyroscope on your phone to perform portal scanning?
Same here. It's even worse. With the previous version (2.43.2 I believe) I could at least play once after re-install or data-wipe. Now it won't even allow me to login sigh.
Still having issues. It got me to log in one time, and the game played, but after that, I'm stuck on the login screen.
@NianticBrian Very easy now when we only scan same portal and soon have onyx. Please fix block and we must scan diffent portals.
