Backgammon Masters: update 1.7.5

Backgammon Masters 1.7.5 Dear friends, the time has come again when a new version of Backgammon Masters has been uploaded to AppStore and Google Play and patiently waiting for a release. Let us tell you what new and interesting features you will find in this version. Starting from the interface. The game will no longer have divided sections for single player and online game. To enter the lobby click the “Play” button as usual and witness selection between both game modes. Furthermore, certain online game elements such as chat and profile icon will be available in both modes. You can now easily play against AI while participating in the chat. If you follow tournaments then from now on you will be able to spectate current active games in each tournament’s section. In the future we plan on enabling these spectator options for historical games as well.

Along with the interface changes several critical bugs such as crashes have been fixed to make the game more stable.
This update is the first step towards grand changes. Step by step we will keep adding more and more functionality. And thanks to your continuous support Backgammon Masters will be able to become favoured by many backgammon players world wide!

Backgammon Masters: update 1.7.2

Dear friends, we are releasing a minor, but crucial update for Backgammon Masters. Additionally to fixing of critical bugs and making slight changes in the interface we have added something new.

First of all, we have implemented automatic reconnection for online games. It’s for cases where you switch the application off during the game, a disconnect happens or your battery dies. If you launch the application again you will continue the match.

Secondly, for players who like customisation it is now possible to change name color upon registration or upon reset of nick name. Color can be chosen only once along with the nick name.

Thirdly, we have once again reworked the checker movement system. “One touch move” has been removed from the settings and is enabled by default. How does it work? If a checker can move to two spots then everything remains as before. However, if the checker can move only to one spot then it will be moved automatically upon clicking or tapping. This is simple and saves time.

That is about it with the current update.
We hope you’ll appreciate it. Good luck!

Change list for 1.7.2:
– Fixed bug with checker blocking in narde
– Fixed bug in Hotseat mode
– Fixed bug in Tavla
