    Default Garf now on Installer

    Garfunkel (Simon clone) is now on Installer (the modmyifone.com/installer.xml repository).


    Remember that this is an early version, especially as far as the sound is concerned. I'm not sure if it's Apple's fault, my fault, or both, but it is very inconsistent. If the sound doesn't work, try running another 3rd party program that uses sound, and then running Garf again. I use 1.1.1...maybe it's different for other firmware versions.

    I've also noticed that after a few minutes, that a higher pitch accompanies some of the notes. I have no idea what is causing this, but to make it stop, simply hit mute and then unmute.

    I love this game but after installing my battery life went from 2 days down to about 10 hours.. After uninstalling my battery life is back to normal.

    Don't put the iPhone to sleep while version 0.15(and earlier) is running, or it will continue to run. The best thing to do is to hit Exit before putting it in standby.

    I'm not sure it's Garf, esp. since I've heard from people who play Garf a lot and have nothing wrong with the battery. But if it is, it may be some type of AudioQueue/MediaServer thing, possibly a bug in the code or the firmware. So always include what firmware version you are using. But I'll look into it tonight, and if I find anything , I'll put up a fixed version (assuming mod-my-ifone repository still exists). If it's not Garf, hopefully someone will get it fixed soon. (I've been told a recent version of MobileRSS may drain the battery, depending on the update frequency, but I've also been told a hundred other things).

    I certainly hope these battery problems are a software issue, and not a general battery issue. Thanks for the feedback.

    Default Garf 0.17 up on Source Forge

    Okay, Garf 0.17 is now up on the Garf Source Forge project page. This version is perhaps more battery friendly. I noticed that after running version 0.15, that a thread on MediaServer would linger for a while after the program exits, instead of disposing of after 0.5 seconds. (Perhaps this is a 1.1.1 bug...not sure.) So I went and changed the Garf code so the thread doesn't linger. As to whether the original behavior had a significant effect on the battery, I have no idea. But if it did, this new version should fix things.

    The new version also prevents Garf from continuing to run while the phone is in standby mode, should you switch the phone off while running the game.

    The Installer repository for Garf, Mod-my-ifone, is apparently down due to a "rather large disaster (real world) in the middle of a server move". But before it returns, it would be nice if any of you who have seen shorter battery times after this program would test out the new version. This will help determine if another Installer repository release is warranted.

    For those stuck with version 0.15 who want to test this, you can always run a program like Piano (iApp-a-day) or NESApp right after running Garf, which will have the same effect as the having the new version.
