Flashing in the same spot every time a tile match is made (R186) [Investigating]

ursoproursopro Posts: 307 Mover and Shaker
After today patch, I noticed that every time you or the enemy make tile matches there will be a flash in the same spot, besides the one that should display when doing said match.

Here are some videos showing how it appears in R186 and how it was during R185.

R185, it only flashed where the matches were made

R186, notice how it always flashes on the top right side even if the match was made somewhere else

    Maybe I'm getting senile, but are the "swing" flashes I see after every match is made new? With "swing" flash I mean the visual effect in the top half of the screen that looks as if someone from your team is taking a swing at the opposing team whenever a match is made. There is a reverse effect if the enemy team makes a match. Disabling character effects does not remove it.

    I don't remember seeing them previously, but I am getting rather annoyed by them.

    I believe this is a new "feature". It annoys me a lot as well, totally not necessary and wish we could turn it off.

    Which system are you playing on?  I don't see it on Android...

    @Brigby These new flashes with R186 are horrible.  I had to quit after only a couple of matches as I was getting a migraine.  Please give us a way to turn them off.

    After the "new engine" update, the special effects in Marvel Puzzle Quest became far more strobe-like.  Turning off character effects has helped some, but it makes the game less fun for me, not to mention harder to follow what is going on.  Please remember that there are plenty of gamers who cannot handle flashy, strobe, disco-like special effects in a game.

    Thank you.


    Edit:  PC Steam version of MPQ.

    Here is a longer video I made to try to highlight the issue/bug we Steam players are currently experimenting in 186


    I have plenty of older builds videos where that effect wasn't present

    Can confirm, that flash happens now every match and its not even where you actually match the tiles.


    Hopefully it's a bug and not a feature because it's a fairly big annoyance.

    well, thanks to some Discord users help it was narrowed down to the match damage fx being misplaced in the same spot as where the mobile version is, so I hope it can be an easy fix for the next build.

    I'm talking about this one:

    Is this about the swipe towards the AP bar? This is on Android also...

    Oh god that is terrible.  I remember when 4* Cage was released and how bad his board shake was.  Came here to the forums, posted about it and 2 days later they resolved it.  This is back when they were ....... yea. 

    Found the thread on that post.  David was very active on the forums at that time which was great.

    Steam doesnt have the AP bars like that, so it just swings towards nothing in particular.

    And if its on all versions, I still dislike this visual effect and it needs to be an option. Stop it with
    the flashy flashing stuffs -_-

    Hey everyone. I haven't heard anything from the team in regards to this issue. I'll go ahead and add it to the bug list for now. When I know something, I'll be sure to let you know here.
