I am a first-time cartridge builder. I have the cartridge roughly written and I'm working on fine-tuning. Pardon if I'm asking questions for which there are already answers; I did try to find them.
I am using the groudspeak builder but have access to Earwigo and Urwigo as well.
I have found several references to media options, but I'm still a little confused. I have downsized all my graphics to 230 pixels as seems recommended, but then I play this on our Android tablet (or even my cell phone) and it looks horrible. I believe I can have multiple options by using *_garmin.jpg and *_ppc.jpg? I believe I am using the ppc option for smart phones/tablets - what resolution can/should I use? Is there any benefit to adding icons? I doubt there are any pocket PC's left in actual use, but will this be of benefit for smart phones?
Second - I have found a couple mentions of Garmin incompatibilities. I know to keep message boxes <850 characters, allowing several characters for any carriage returns. I don't have any onClick events; all my scripts are zones or inputs. I have chained message boxes with button scripts in order to keep events in order, sometimes a lot of them (up to a dozen; my cartridge is plot-heavy). Nevertheless, I don't have access to any of these devices for testing, so I'm guessing.
Third - do I need to know anything special about piGo (the iOs app)? I have an Android phone (Motorolla Droid 2) and Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus) and WhereYouGo (Android app) is my only access to cartridges. I may be able to con a friend into field testing an iPhone but I'd like to avoid any pitfalls first.
Thanks for your time!
