### Fps drops, flashing screen

I’m having an issue on IOS where the screen will flash black for 2 seconds when touching icons in build menu. Also experiencing FPS dropping very low when I don’t touch anything for more than 5 seconds

Regarding FPS drops see here: viewtopic.php?f=36&t=11929
They are 100% intentional to reduce power consumption. You can disable energy saving to get rid of them, but that may consume a bit more energy

Regarding flashes, what exactly do you mean by build menu and does it matter where exactly you tap on? Was this a new issue or was it there since you have the game?

Things in the city overview sections and things in the building menu such as supply, terrain and others flash if I tap on them

I am not sure if that is related to the issue you are experiencing, but I think I was able to fix black flashes when switching between different screens of the app in the upcoming version 1.9.09. That happens for example when switching between sections of the city overview. The new version should be available within a few days.

Strange enough, I also see that issue if I get the game from the AppStore while the same version built locally has no such issues. Will have a look into that.
