Got myself a real live Shove HalfPenny board from eBay today – figured that it would be a great family activity over the Summer break, the kids are off school for 6 weeks so we are holding our own ‘Shove HalfPenny championship’!
On a dev note its Perhaps just as well that I got a ‘real board’ as I now realise that the boundaries between the beds (the scoring area) is not raised as I had remembered (I guess there is just no substitute for real hardware!)
Still waiting to hear back from MS on the turn by turn support (is there anybody there?).
Currently in the middle of adding multiple language support to all six of my existing phone apps & praying that I will get a device to help with multi touch input ‘real soon’.
