How do I change keyboard commands to "gestures" for a mobile game?

    Hey guys!

    I'd like to create a game for PC, Mac AND mobile devices. But: How do I "tell" Visionaire which "gestures" (e.g. on an iPad or android phone) lead to which command? In the engine, I can only find keyboard and gamepad buttons.
    I'm looking forward to reading your answers smile

    Best regards,
    Jonas

    I believe they can be done through Lua script. Unfortunately we don't have any documentation on them & I've not needed to use them myself yet, so I can't help you there. I'm sure SimonS will probably be able to shed some light on this topic whenever he logs on / sees it.

    I would love to see some feedback here from the dev team smile

    What I would guess so far (i never saw a VS game on smartphone) that the cursor and mechanics would remain the same as on computer. Just like ScummVM on Smartphones... (cursor is controlled by finger, left click = short tap, right click = long tap ?)

    As far as I'm aware gestures was implemented into one of the early 4.x builds, but I have no clue how to access them.

    • new feature: multitouch event handler for mobile
    • reworked mobile touch usage (e.g. swipe right skips cutscenes and movies)

    Hi, just wondering if there had been any updates on this?  Would love to have access to some gesture functionality.

    Is this still being developed? Not sure why this has not been addressed by developers.

    The recommendation is to always use commands, then you can build everything else around it. Taps are mapped to clicks, if you need more complicated things you can use the lua eventhandler. There is also eEvtMultiGesture for pinch zooms.
