    Patrick, just wanted to let you know there's a small bug with the Dealer hitting on a hard 17 if his hand contains an Ace. Example: The dealer is dealt a Jack, 6, and then an Ace. He should stop, because that's a hard 17, but the game goes ahead and hits it.

The only thing that would then be specific to the game would be special cards and the table background.
    I am not against it, and have suggested it before. My cards are a bit bigger than his, so he'd have to scale them which shouldn't be too hard.

    Yeah the aces aren't working right for the dealer right now. Here is the defect that someone logged: http://code.google.com/p/iphoneblack...s/detail?id=27

    That bug and another bug involving playing too soon after an insurance offering I'm working on right now.

    I fixed the two bugs today. Also tweaked the score counting timing, it's not perfect but it'll do for now.

    New version is done. Here is the changelog.

    - No theme, stuck in game bug fixed.
    - Added better fonts for the score keeper. (toolchain fix)
    - Made score keeper default to on.
    - Changed how the "Get More" button worked on the Themes page.
    - Added status of how much money you lost on the hand over screen.
    - Removed the words "Hand Over" from the hand over screen.
    - Other misc fixes.

    (NOTE: new address for repo, easier to type into Installer. Old repo address still works too)

    I have one or two cosmetic changes I want to make still before a wide public release on Monday.

    I also hit a game bug where I was unable to tap/swipe/etc but I could hit the Menu button. Not sure what I did, and I can't reproduce it again. If anyone can help me reproduce it, that'd be great!

    great app, but I found a major bug in the new release. Whenever you lose it gives you your money back =p. If only vegas dealers were that nice, haha.

    I made a few updates again. Just to the preferences menu, including a better looking theme selection.

    Let me know if anyone finds any new issues, this is the final internal release before a public alpha 5 release.

    I found an issue. Actually, it's been there for a while, but the last two updates, it's gotten worse.

    When the dealer is showing an Ace, it's supposed to offer insurance if that option is on. For me, at least half the time, it just says dealer has BlackJack (if the hidden card is a 10/Jack/Queen/King) and I lose.

    Are you sure the option is on?

    If the option is off, you'll lose automatically. It comes up with any ace card showing without fail for me. I just ran the game with the option on and stacked the deck so the dealer would always have an ace up card (found a new bug here actually) and it always prompted me first.

    If the option was off it would always tell me I lost right away if the dealer actually had Blackjack.

    If you can find a pattern with it always happens, let me know.

    Alpha 4.4 Released

    - Fixes double money loss
    - Bet amounts now count down/up like the Bank does
    - Current bet amount on Deal button
    - Slight changes to Preferences to prevent the blue selection highlights from staying around.

    If no more major bugs occur tomorrow, I'll be releasing this as Alpha 5.

    I have also had that happening to me a couple of times now. I've just downloaded 4.4 - I'll see if it happens again.

    I'm also experiencing that. Most of the time insurance is offered, but it does sometimes hit blackjack and tell me I've lost.

    Ya know, I noticed that with the previous version.

    Really appreciate all your work; damn fine app. Not to be a PITA, but any idea when the "split" functionality might be available?

    Who is Greg? I'm pretty sure I made that comment. I found the bug and fixed it, it involved taking insurance.

    I found the bug, now to fix it. It involves busting before the hand with the ace appears. I should have it remedied today.

    The current version does tell you that you won 4x more on double down instead of 2x. But I fixed that and will release once i fix the insurance problem.

    As far as splits, in the next two weeks. To implement it I may break a lot of gameplay because of re-writing the code. So I want to solidify other features first. It takes another layer of game logic that I have to really spend time on. I have a lot of free time this month, so I should be able to get it in and then consider the game v1.0.

    I take that back. I was seeing things. I was testing and would get a dealer blackjack notification right away, but only because the dealer's down card would be ace. It would not be the up card, it only asks for insurance with the Ace being the up card.

    Most casinos peek, but some may not. So in a future version I'll add an option to disable this peek at the start of the round. Until then it's just normal enough to leave as is.

    So... iBlackjack Alpha 5 RC1 is released. Fixes the quad score display.

    Was gonna report that, glad you saw it already. I have, however, found something I haven't seen mentioned yet:

    I get dealt a 10 & a 2 (total = 12.) Double, get dealt a 2 (total now = 14.) No more cards to be dealt since I doubled. Dealer has a 2 and a 3 showing (total = 5.) Dealer hits, get's dealt a 10 (dealer's total is now 15, beating my hand.) HOWEVER, dealer hits *again*, getting dealt a King, and busts. I win.

    The dealer beat my hand on the first hit, and should have stopped at 15, because that was a winning hand, right?

    No, normal Blackjack rules are the dealer MUST hit on 16, in some places must hit on soft 17.
