Silhouette v1.2

- Update: Faster portrait/landscape switching 
- New Feature: Camera moves with home screen changes

This version inherits the quicker reloading from Galactic Core and Aquarium.  The camera motion has a pref available in the paid version, allowing you to set the speed it transitions at (or off completely, if you prefer).  This feature really didn't take too long in and of itself, but for the longest time I couldn't figure out how to find out which home screen the user was on -- then the other day I discovered onOffsetsChanged() staring me in the face, proving once and for all I'm terrible at reading documentation.  It's a callback function within Engine that gives you all the data you need.

Either way, beyond that there was some general fixing as the scene didn't have things at the proper depth to make parallax make sense, but after a couple hours of adjusting models and scene layout it looks more or less the same, but now provides proper 3D parallax when the camera moves.  Huzzah!


  1. Please make the trees sway slightly less synchronously

  2. Can you post the default settings for the paid wallpaper? I started messing around with it but forgot what they all were. Shouldn't the background image change on time of day by default? (Like the "Grass" live wallpaper that comes with N1.)

  3. I'm afraid I've had to uninstall mine as it kept flashing trapezoids top left and beneath trees. Like lightning, but not supposed to be there. A shame.
