comment Do nested/layered fields provide any advantage?
This answer is now factually incorrect. Overlapping fields have clear strategic and tactical advantages and changes in the game since this answer was written have only made these advantages more acute.

comment Playing mouse era games with a touchscreen or pen
I know that @Rapitor, but unless the game already supports touch events (which I doubt, otherwise it would do something sensible with them) then some intervening software layer must be translating double tap into single click, in which case why is it translating taps into games differently to taps into windows normally.

comment Playing mouse era games with a touchscreen or pen
@Rapitor Thanks, but in windows generally tap and click are equivalent, in Pen & Touch, Touch Actions, double tap is set to double click and press and hold is set to right click, so it must be something special in the game, or maybe in direct X that causes the problem.

You cannot create a link at a portal inside a field, but you can link from portals which are on the edge of a field to portals within the field (at v1.44.0).

Hi @Ben, what do you mean by "unable to space the resonators properly"? Thanks.

comment Why can't they find me?
GPS acquisition can be slow on many devices. One of the first apps I install on any Android device with a GPS is GPS Status which seems to acquire a GPS lock faster than any other application I've found, keeps your GPS assistance data up to date and also has a tool for calibrating your compass.
