Multitouch only registering 2 points

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a simple game using PIXI.js for mobile devices. While testing it on my HTC Desire 500 Android (4.1.2) phone, I found out that at maximum, only 2 multitouch-points are registered at one time. This happens both for touchstart/touchend and for the tap function. (tapping two objects at the same time works, but three or more does not).


As my game depends on people being able to tap many objects in quick succession, I would like to know what the issue is here: Is this a problem that PIXI has? Or is it something that happens in the browser? Or is it only my specific phone model that has this problem?


Thank you,

as far as I can remember older android browser only exposes 2 touches. anyway it's a very quick check:

document.addEventListener('touchstart', function (e) { console.log(e.touches.length) }, false);

and see where the counter stops
