Baldurs gate EE android clicking on hidden chest help

hey all. I need your help again and for anyone else with this. On baldurs gate on android clicking, or tapping on hidden chest is a nightmare, like the ring in the friendly arm i tap on the screen about 50 times before getting it. Sometimes less if im lucky but is there an easyer way? Or a trick methord?

    Unfortunately not, at least as far as I know. I have the same problem when playing on Android. It helps a bit if you zoom in a little, because the pixel you need to tap is small and a human finger is not, but basically you just have to be patient and hit the right spot. Sometimes I have the impression that it's more difficult if your character is standing too close to the spot, because you have to tap all over it, but that's just my impression. I haven't tried using a pen, because I don't have one, but it might also help to be more precise I suppose.

    If you do find a trick to make this easier, please share it with us :)

    I have faint memories of playing on the Android version a long time ago (that was on a 5½" screen), and what I did was zoom in to the max possible level, and keep the container highlights on (that "?" button on the lower part of the right panel, if I remember correctly), and that made it pretty easy to click on the hidden chest. It also helps to press gently and keep the finger on it for sometime, instead of a brief tap. I don't exactly know why, but it just works.

    This is one of the more annoying parts of playing on Android, especially in BG1, where these tiny containers seem to be everywhere. I have found that keeping my character a fair distance away and then tapping where I think the container is until I see the "open container" icon instead of the "move to position" cursor appear.
