Hi everybody,

we have quite successful app in AppStore (Samorost3) packed with AIR 23, which was many time featured. But now when iPhoneX was released, Apple stopped featuring us, because the older AIR is not compatible with this new device. During last days I managed to improve the game to work well on ultra wide resolutions (the original was meant to be used just with FullHD). It is now working perfectly on iPhoneX with the latest AIR 28, but when we were testing backward compatibility, we noticed, that on older devices like iPad Mini 2, but also on iPhone6+, the performance is significantly slower than current public version.

It had remind me performance issue with AIR24, which I logged almost year ago: AIR-4198214 -> Tracker 

Unfortunately this issue was never resolved. We were fine as game was working well with version AIR 23 and there was no need for update until now.

Now the situation is quite serious. We are not going to update the game for iPhoneX using AIR 28, as it would kill performance for many people, which already have a game and were enjoying it. It will not be so easy to find us now in the AppStore, because current version of game is running only in the compatibility mode and Apple will not feature us anymore.

I wish someone in Adobe could review (and fix) this performance issue and or give us some way, how to get AIR 23 version running on iPhoneX.

It is clear that the thing which made the performance bad was between version 23 and 24.

Thank you for listening,

Have a merry Christmas and better New Year!
