Hey everyone, So it seems that there's a prevalent crash that occurs during startup of the game. We think that it has something to do with the audio system on the device. If you try launching your iPod and playing a song until you can hear it and then restarting AF, it may work.
Please post your success with this (or how you deal with it) on this thread. We're really sorry about this and working hard to smooth out game play for our next update. These things are kind of like peeling an onion. Sometimes fixing one reveals a new one.
Interesting. I've had the same thing happen to me, not only with AF, but also Super Monkey Ball and others that just won't load. Usually a reboot of the iPhone does the trick for me and it loads up the first time.
I think you have a really big problem here. Since I downloaded the latest update I can’t start the game. If this is not fixed soon I am afraid you will lose your entire fan base. i have deleted and installed this program 10 times, I have rebooted my phone at least 10 times. I will check back from time to time to see if you have a new update until then I am done trying to make this work. Sorry to be negative.

it appears my crash bug is phone wide, not necessarily specific to aurora feint. any application crashes to the home screen after about 5 seconds. the few i've reinstalled work properly now. If I delete and reinstall AF, will my character data be in tact?
Actually, this crash is very consistent, for me, whether or not I'm listening to music/podcasts. First time I launch AF, it spends several seconds (I'd say 10) on the startup screen, then crashes. Second time, it spends less time on the startup screen (maybe 3 seconds) then brings me to another screen (say, the Map) and crashes immediately. Third time, I can actually use the app.
None of this works if I haven't done a hard restart (hold home+power beyond the shutdown slider), as far as I can tell.
iPod touch 16GB, never jailbroken, about 2GB free, several other apps, firmware 2.0.1.

I removed the app from the phone, resynced the app and updated the app on the phone to 18.104.22.168 and it's now working for me. I did NOT lose my game progress in doing this. Rebooting the phone did not help. In my case it crashed almost instantly on launch. It may have shown the splash screen for a couple of seconds.
I am starting up and the loading screen ( this will take about 30 sec)shows for progressively shorter time (27, 17...sec) before crashing. iPod doesn't help restarting doesn't help. Restart doesn't help. Was getting 1 play from each download, now even redownload doesn't fix. I'll post crash log when I get to comp.

iPhone 3G, 16GB, 5.6GB Free AF Version 22.214.171.124 AF Will Not Start:
Get "Loading" page for about 10 seconds & phone returns to menu. Played music while loading: Same Results Hard Reset: Same Results. Played music while loading after hard reset: Same Results Played then stopped music after hard reset: Same Results.
All seems to have started after I received upgrade.
Any help would be appreciated. CyberBiker
Would send crash log, but haven't figured out where it is yet.
