Upside down loading screen

Has anyone else had a problem with the loading screen being upside down from the actual device orientation? I'm on an iPad 2 and you can use the device in any orientation so it may be specific to iPad.

Loading screen will come up like this.

Main screen will look like this.

It doesn't matter which way I turn the device, the loading screen is always upside down.

(sorry if this has already been posted, I searched but didn't find anything)

Every game has a favored orientation. It will load in one way, regardless of orientation. It will then flip back to your orientation when it's ready.

So are you saying that it will always load one way? Because it always loads opposite to the devices orientation.

We do know about this issue, it's a cocos2d bug. To fix it we would reintroduce the bug that made the game crash on 2G iPods and 3G iPhones, that's why we have bound hands :sisi:

Nearly every game has this "wrong" orientation at the loading screen and turns right when the "real" game starts. So this is not a real problem, is it? Only games with portrait orientation do not have this "bug".

Yeah that's not necesarrily a bug, but this always goes opposite, it doesn't have one set orientation like most. It's still not a real problem regardless.

I've noticed that a lot of my games have this "issue", which it's really not. As long as it re-orientates itself you should be good.

Yeah, but some games dont even have this re-orientation feature - if I remember correctly it was the game Bridge Constructor...

I noticed this issue a lot more on iPod's and iPhone's, and not so much on the iPad. As I said earlier this is probably because the iPad will orient itself in any direction.

There really isn't a "wrong way" to hold it? Unless of course your holding it with your feet....
