Title: Botanicula lags horrible on galaxy note pro 2014 edition
Post by: Kazekai on May 09, 2016, 05:24:43 am
I used to play this game all the time on my kindle fire HDX and it worked fine, I got it in the humble bundle because it's pretty much impossible to get paid android games on a kindle fire any other way. (Google won't let people have the raw .apk files, probably to prevent them from doing exactly that. >_>) so even so it wasn't supposed to be on that device it actually worked just like the PC version and it was great.

But a couple months ago I got a galaxy note pro so I could draw on the go and have a proper android tablet that I didn't have to root or mod just to get to do the things a normal android tablet should be able to do, but botanicula runs horribly on this tablet and I don't know why since spec-wise it's more powerful than my HDX was.

I thought it was just the humble version of the game so I got it off google play and nope, it's pretty much every version. I contacted amanita about it but they never got back to me so I waited a little over a week and tried to contact their twitter where I usually get a response and they still didn't answer me so now I'm asking here. I can't imagine my tablet is too weak to run a game I could get to work on a kindle fire and it has better specs than my fire did so the problem must be software-related.

Since I can't get the devs' attention to maybe fix this I'd like to know if there's some backend thing I can do to make the game work. It isn't taking up that much RAM when I look in the task manager so it obviously isn't taxing my system.

If you have widgets and stuff like that running in the backround,
shut them down or erase them. Also, you might try to download
a performance boosting app.

If none of those work, there's something the devs need
to fix. If they aren't responding, send them mail a few
more times, the subject being bold etc.
