Key Highlights:

  1. Ninja Component & New Characters: We’ve noticed the Ninja component wasn’t playing nicely with our newly introduced characters. Our digital blacksmith team is refining the code to ensure that every character moves and interacts as gracefully as a shadow in the night. Expect smoother, more responsive interactions in your upcoming encounters.
  2. Portrait Mode Persistence: An unexpected twist in our tale occurred when the app decided to remain stuck in portrait mode following an internet disconnection. We’re implementing a spell of resilience to ensure that XANA remains as adaptable and responsive as the elements themselves, regardless of your connection status.
  3. Vanishing Environments on Space Screen: Some explorers have reported entire environments disappearing from the Space screen, turning exploration into an unintentional game of hide and seek. Our cartographers are on a mission to map every byte, ensuring that no world within XANA ever fades from your sight again.
  4. Wallet Connection Loader: The passage to connecting your wallet to the XANA App has been obstructed by a stubborn loader that refuses to move on. Our financial wizards are conjuring up a more efficient gateway, making sure that accessing your assets is as swift as a dragon’s flight.
  5. Classroom Lobby NPCs: Lastly, our Classroom Lobby has been a little too collision-friendly, with NPCs finding themselves in a bit of a tangle. We’re teaching these NPCs the art of personal space, ensuring that your interactions with them are both meaningful and glitch-free.

Expect to dance, interact, and celebrate without needing a virtual snorkel.
  2. Enhancing Usability – Setting Screen UI Issues: A seamless experience is key to fully enjoying the XANA Metaverse, and the setting screen is your control panel for personalizing this journey. We’ve identified a few quirks affecting the user interface of our setting screen, from sliders that slide a bit too eagerly to buttons playing hide and seek. Our UI/UX magicians are on the case, redesigning and refining the setting screen to ensure your customization experience is intuitive, effective, and, most importantly, frustration-free.
