Full screen mode on the HTC Touch
« on: October 14, 2007, 05:31:30 PM »
I have the trial version of Sudoku running on an HTC Touch Phone.  I entered full screen mode and am un able to exit full screen mode.
The softkeys have disappeared.  Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Full screen mode on the HTC Touch

Hi Simon,

Yes, you are missing something--buttons!  Full screen mode was designed to work with devices that have hardware buttons for the softkeys.

I'll look into a solution for making the menus work without buttons for an upcoming release.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

As a temporary workaround, if you get stuck in full screen mode and can't get out, you can do the following:

1. Stop the game using a task manager (or soft reset the device).
2. Delete "Program Files\Smoresoft Sudoku\Smoresoft.Sudoku.exe.config" using File Explorer.
3. Start the game (and don't select Full Screen mode again).

Note that File Explorer hides the file extension by default, so it will look like "Smoresoft.Sudoku.exe" but won't have the Smoresoft Sudoku icon next to it.

Dear David,

As i'm using a HTC touch i've tried your solution about getting out of full screen, it didn't work.
Since have you found something else.
For your info i stopped the device, took out the battery for a while, uninstall and re-load the game from your official site, i have a purchase version, nothing workrd to get out of this problem.

Thanks for your help, by the way is there a french site.

Hi sofiane,

The full screen mode setting is stored in the Smoresoft.Sudoku.exe.config file, so taking out the battery and resetting the device won't help (the config file will still be there). You may want to try exiting then uninstalling the game and deleting everything in the "Smoresoft Sudoku" directory before reinstalling, in order to be sure that you've really deleted the config file.

Version 1.6 will resolve this problem. It will be released in the next 24 hours, so you may prefer to wait for that.

Sorry, there is no French version of the Smoresoft site.

Smoresoft Sudoku 1.6 has been released. You can read the announcement here.

After installing version 1.6, you can "tap and hold" on the screen to access the menu in full screen mode.

Note that you will encounter installation errors if you try to install version 1.6 while version 1.5 is still running.  If you cannot exit version 1.5 because of the full-screen mode problem, soft-reset the device before installing version 1.6 (or, if you have a task manager utility, end the process).

Note that this is fixed in version 1.7.  Just tap-and-hold to display the menu.

Enjoy!
