Additional details

Some users have expressed difficulty in using the following swipe actions: up to withdraw from the bank, down to deposit in the bank, left on a product to sell all, right on a product to buy the maximum amount of a product.

There are now new settings to change the swipe actions to a tap instead. In Settings, under Advanced Gameplay Settings, the following two new options exist:

  • Tap to buy max or sell all
    By turning this option on, you can now tap on a product and the following will happen – if you own some of the product, it will sell them all. If you don’t own the product, it will buy the maximum your cash allows. This replicates swiping right and left, and swiping will be disabled
  • Tap to withdraw or deposit
    By turning this option on, you can now tap on the CASH label to withdraw all from the bank, and tap on the BANK label to deposit all but the withholding amount. This replicates swiping up and down, and swiping will be disabled

Beta testers needed

We need a few more beta testers to help us test Dopewars on a wider range of devices and operating systems than we can test ourselves! Beta releases are stable versions of the app with new features added, released 2-4 weeks before the final release is made generally available so, as well as helping us out with testing, you get early access to the next set of new features!
