    Nice! Thanks! Used 2nd code! For some reason the game said it was only compatible with my Pixel XL, but NOT with my Galaxy S8. I wonder why? I usually use the S8 in the Daydream these day. I fiddling around with Oreo on the Pixel, hope that's not a problem?

    Anyways I will let you know what I think about the game in a couple days.

    Thanks for the heads up pkcable! I'll look into why S8 isn't working.

    Thanks for the welcome pkcable!

    What version of Android do you have on the S8? I have the minimum Android version set to 7.1. Sadly I don't have a Galaxy to test with :\

    That may be it, the S8 is reporting itself to be on 7.0. No worries though, I'll just try with my Pixel XL As long as there are know Oreo issues.

    It was an awesome project to work on. I've always had a passion for racing games, so it was fun to make one of my own! I put a ton of time into getting the drifting physics just right. It's tricky to get the hang of initially, but once you figure out how to oversteer/understeer and apply the gas right you can end up zipping around the tracks quite fast.

    I think a lot of this game was subconsciously inspired by hours of playing Gran Turismo lol

    Worked nicely on the Pixel! IF you would like me to test on the S8, I would be happy to do so, just let me know and provide me with an APK that I can sideload. I already have a license thanks to your generous code.

    Not looking good. BUT I will try downloading tonight under WiFi, and with a more stable connection. The cellular at my office is iffy at best, lol But it appeared to download and I got an error message about the package not parsing. You probably made the right choice going 7.1 and above! BUT I'll let you know for sure tonight!

    BTW I LOVE the control mechanism! It takes a little getting used to, BUT it's VERY functional, and almost like having an actual steering wheel! GREAT job!

    Nice! Yeah once you get a feel for the cars and drifting it becomes super fun. I feel the depth of the game lies in the subtlety of coordinating the angle of the drift, oversteer/understeer, and throttle. When you nail a good turn = awesome.

    That apk link I gave you is still set to 7.1. I'll resend you a link to a version that works with 7.0. Thanks again for testing it!

    Installed fine, BUT my controller is dead! lol Playing last night on the Pixel probably killed it! lol I'll try again after lunch, BUT I think it's gonna work, it installed and ran up to the prompt for the controller!

    SOB!!!!!! I now know that the controller can not be paired to the Pixel and the S8 at the SAME time! One of them MUST be turned off! LOL Ah well live and learn. Anyways the game runs fine on my S8, I had no issues as far as I could tell.
