PreCentral: Astraware TouchPad Totalizer tops 5000, OddBlob and Astraware Casino en route

Recommended Posts

Astraware TouchPad Totalizer tops 5000, OddBlob and Astraware Casino en route

Folks, it happened: Astraware's TouchPad Totalizer tracker of TouchPad game sales finally topped 5,000 sales, the top level for Astraware's we'll-make-these-if-you-buy-enough-of-those deal. Granted, 5,000 isn't a huge number for Astraware; they likely sell more than that in a day on iOS or Android - when you're on a platform that sells three million units in a weekend, five thousand is a drop in the bucket for a firm like Astraware.

The progress up the Totalizer totem pole has seen the release of Astraware Mahjong HD to test the waters, with Sudoku HD and Astraware Solitaire following as further sales targets fell. But things hit a hitch around the 3500 mark, where one would find the popular Astraware game OddBlob. Sudoku and Solitaire saw releases shortly after hitting the sales targets, but OddBlob has not hit the TouchPad App Catalog yet despite it having been quite some time since the sales target was hit.

Asked about this seeming oversight on the Twitters, Astraware admitted that the process of transferring OddBlob to the TouchPad "has taken longer than expected", so you should expect Astraware Casino to hit first. That said, OddBlob and Casino are both popular games and we wouldn't be surprised to see them sell a few thousand copies on the TouchPad eventually.

It's a testament to Astraware that they're willing to put the work into using the webOS PDK to bring their apps to the TouchPad. As the delay with OddBlob has shown, it's not always super easy to make the transfer happen, but we're happen to see Astraware making the effort even for just the few thousand sales that the TouchPad user community can bring. Sometimes it's not about the money, though we doubt Astraware would be doing this if they weren't at least breaking even - that's why they set up the Totalizer in the first place, so that we could see ourselves what it would take to make it worthwhile in Astraware's eyes.

    • How to turn on advanced image controls in game mode?

      How to turn on advanced image controls in game mode?
      I have a PC connected to the LG UK6520PSA TV through the hdmi 2.0 cable and incredible as it may seem I have already been able to configure the advanced image mode with all parameters connected, such as dynamic contrast, super resolution, gamma, among others.
      It turns out that for some reason the advanced s control settings become inactive, with the possibility of changing the gamma only. Has anyone ever had this problem?
      I already reseated several times and I could not, it is also important to note that I saw some videos on youtube with these settings activated in game mode. Please help me if you know something, thank you!
      Sorry for the google translator. The images below represent the options connected in hdmi game mode connected to a PC running BF

    • My TV powers up and put the sound level at 100% by itself

      Hi, I bought a 47LB630V TV years ago, but since few weeks, my TV is going crazy. In stand by mode, it turns on by itself without any user interaction (by the remote controller or by the joystick button). Then, the level of the sound is increasing to the maximum. In the same time, it is impossible to use the remote controller for minutes. When it happened, some time, I managed to decrease the level, but then, it goes up again to the maximum. I tried to disconnect my TV from internet, perform a reset configuration. I also tried to downgrade the firmware (05.05.35 to 03.xx.xx). The problem stil occurs. It seems that somehow, it is like a program that forces the joystick button to move to left. When I am in the setting menu, and my TV goes crazy, the cursor is always put on the left-most element. Does someone already experience that ? It is like my TV was infected by a sort-of rootkit. Thanks,
