    Default Black Option Bar covering significant part of the screen

    On HTC One X running Android 4.0.3 and HTC Sense 4.0 (let me know if you need more numbers)

    Playing the game, the black option bar (three dots / elipsis) is visible along the right edge of the screen (bottom if in Portrait orientation) and rather than the screen adjusting for it, it's covering buttons up so I'm finding playing the game impossible.

    I would rather the black bar disappeared entirely as it does nothing anyway, but a work-around may be to cause the screen to shrink.

    Is this the same for all phones without a physical Options button?

    Is there any way you could get screenshots of this so I can see what you mean please?

    (the way the game should work is there is effectively a 1280x720 skin and a 1184 skin for mobile phones which have a permanent 'bar' imposed upon the screen - as such it should already have adjusted the UI to take this into account).

    Hi, we've got an idea why this is happening and are currently looking into it - if other people with an HTC One X could let us know whether they're experiencing the same thing that'd be very helpful as we don't have the exact device in the QA Lab.

    Was sent on the 6th, heard nothing back.

    Did I send it to the right address?

    Cheers. Since I emailed him he's popped up on Google+ as a "you might know", but doesn't look like he uses it otherwise I'd have poked him there too

    I've got it, just a case of finding a spare minute to run through it all. Want me to report back here or via e-mail?

    I thought so. Haven't had a chance yet, but I'll let you know when I do.

    Just to confirm to anyone else who comes across this thread - a fix for this issue will be in the next update.

    Nope. Not to me anyway...

    Is it possible to get rid of the black bar completely? It does nothing, I see no need for it to be there.

    At the moment I haven't figured out a way to do that - yours is the only device which displays it in this way (all others it 'gets out of the way' automatically) - I think its a bug in the OS implementation on that device I'm afraid.

    (I will keep looking into things obviously and if I can discover a way a later update/version will include that - but at lest things are working properly now with the sizing, thats a start )

    Yep, game is functioning as expected, so it's not a big deal, I think other app devs are having the same problems, but a lot just make use of the black-bar button, which isn't appropriate here I don't think.
