Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 144, we talked about improving touch based game performance using touch coalescing. We also looked at using image masks to create a circular dial timer, similar to what we’ve seen before from Jason Schroeder.

We also talked with QuestLord developer, Eric Kinkead about his coming release of QuestLord 2 and his fun Camera Pixel camera app.

Here are clips from Hangout #144. Watch the entire Hangout, or just the pieces that interest you.

Part 1 – Community Announcements

Part 2 – Eric Kinkead talks about QuestLord 2 and Pixel Camera

Part 3 – Ed Maurina explains how work is performed between frames

Part 4 – Ed shows how to improve app performance

Part 5 – The panel discusses alternative ways to handle touch listeners

Part 6 – Ed shows off a radial dial timer solution

Part 7 – The panel discusses persisting data

While you’re at it, be sure to watch Hangout #145 where we walked through how to extend libraries with your own custom functionality, how to save and load data to a device using JSON, and how to persist state across app uses.

Thank you for watching, listening, and following Corona Geek:
