I've uploaded a new version to Steam and the TGC downloads area with the following changes

* Fixed a bug where text objects could have missing characters if using DrawText with multiple text objects using the same font and character size with Vulkan
* Fixed TTF fonts rendering at lower quality if the text was place at a half pixel position
* Added support for the RequestAppReview command on Android (Google Play only)
* Updated iOS projects so they will now run on M1 (ARM) Macs
* Fixed AdMob reward videos on Android sometimes rendering incorrectly
* Added SetAdMobChildRating command to notify AdMob if the app is targeted at children
* Added GetRewardAdValueAdMob command to get the reward amount from a reward ad
* Added CreateImageFromPNGMemblock to convert a memblock containing a PNG file into an AppGameKit image
* Added CreateSoundFromOGGMemblock to convert a memblock containing an OGG file into an AppGameKit sound
* Added CreateMusicFromOGGMemblock to convert a memblock containing an OGG file into an AppGameKit music file
* Added GetMemblockSHA1 to hash the contents of a memblock
* Added GetMemblockSHA256 to hash the contents of a memblock
* Added SetImageSubImages to change the subimages.txt file currently applied to an AppGameKit image

Let me know if you have any problems

Very excited to see the new memblock and subimages methods. I hope these make it into AppGameKit classic as well.

The new commands displays as white text instead of colored text as the older commands on my computer. Maybe there's a file that hasn't been updated?

Yes thank you, it seems somehow, that App Game Kit Studio is not dead as all say. I'm thankful for the update! Also a positive thing that i want to mention is, that i saw in your newest Newsletter, that the ShaderPack should be compatible with Game Guru (Max)! So is there a new Mindset inside the Team to bring your products more closer together? If yes, then this is a good direction! If not, thenb please think about it ! All the best !

Then again, its not very alive either. It took 3 months to get few new commands, and bugfixes.

Also there hasn't been any activity in AGKTier2 repo in github since 16 nov 2020 and only 5 bugs closed (and 9 new created) in AppGameKit studio repo in the past month (according to github pulse)

Thank...but it seems that the new commands are not highlighted in the IDE.
And SetImageSubImages doesn´t exist in the help and so no way to look how it could work.

btw.: A tool to converting images(or OGG sounds) in a memblock could be useful for new users.So everybody have to code its own app for that.

343 issues and feature requests in the database.. not a single one looked at. Even the simple stuff like being able to fold code using a keyboard shortcut. But hey, we can now request a review on google play... that'll be super useful for all of the three people who might use it.

Chill people. Give the devs a chance. There's so much going on now it's difficult for any business to work properly.

Yes this is really annoying. And there are more things like that: In the Project panel all nodes are expanded every time I open an .agk file and the cursor position gets lost somewhere in the list but not on the currently opened file. Just today I had to wonder why the debugger tool tip shows no value when hovering over a variable with the mouse (only shows " : "). After one hour of searching I remembered the debug window must be visible for this feature to work.
