Update

Added support for trial mode and revamped support for in-app-purchases. Now the plugin is more powerful and can handle a lot of monetization scenarios.

See Plugin tutorial in Scirra or Trials and In-app purchases revisited blog post for more details.

Is the plugin only for windows 8 desktop or mobile? I'm confused since I have an app that runs only in portrait mode. Running in landscape reveals all items I want to hide unless I set the Fullscreen browser to Letterbox. Right now it's set to Scale for android and ios.

I guess what I'm saying is how can I keep my app portrait in the windows store for both mobile and desktop?

@bon4ire:
This plugin is for Windows 8. (It is not for Windows Phone 8 if that is what you mean "mobile").

But with "mobile" if you meant a tablet running Windows 8, you can fix your game's orientation preference to portrait when you open your app in VS2012 and go to package.appxmainfest file->Application UI Tab select Portrait and Portrait-flipped under Supported rotations.iunkn2012-10-05 19:24:02

Hi,
I noticed that when the game is in "filled" mode the game is not centered correctly. See this image for an example.
Also, is it possible for the letterboxing to be pure black instead of a dark grey? I Think the dark grey comes from the ui-dark.css file, correct? Oh, and one last question. :) Is it safe to use the latest beta release (r105) with this plugin or do you recommend r104?

Many thanks,
