This update has focused on improving the graphics speed on both low-end Android devices and emulators. It also introduces a sprite surface allowing easy creation of sprite type games. New projects include a basic Lunar Lander game and Aquarium sprite demo. There are also extra screen commands and the ability to direct some graphics commands to the sprite surface. The memory system and interrupts have also been improved so making apps even more responsive when in front and very low lag when in the background.
In all there are 47 new commands and functions covering sprite animation, screen canvas and network.
HAC has also received a number of improvements including the option to make controls invisible at startup. The About Box and Splash Screen designers have been removed as the Home card is the natural place for having a Splash Screen or About Box.
For a list of improvements see the release notes accompanying HAC and the posts listed in our forums.
