I literally have never once been able to successfully launch the game. I tried with 1.0 shortly after release, tried again with the new version, have reinstalled a few times, have reset the phone and tried launching it as the very first thing I do....literally not a single time have I gotten past the load screen. It brings up the loading may take 30 seconds screen, then flips back to the launchboard every time i try.
Game looks right up my alley, but I have to give up for now I guess. Hope ya'll figure out whats going on. I don't have issues like this with other apps. A few have crashed once or twice on load, but none consistently like this. In fact, i think those other apps not loading seemed to only happen after a failed launch of Aurora Feint, but not positive...
For me, I don't think its related to audio, as it happens everytime regardless of me doing anything with ipod features. Could it be related to the other apps I have installed? I thought they were sandboxed, but I can't understand why my phone would be different than others to a degree that I would consistently never ever launch the app, even right after a reboot. Do programs initialize themselves as the phone boots up even without running them, and potentially something is putting my iphone in a state where your game will never load as a result? I have lots of apps loaded...
My phone is running the latest firmware and has never be jailbroken or unlocked. Original iphone bought at launch.
16 gig Ipod touch. Same problem. About 20 seconds of splash screen then back to home screen. Anyone got any ideas other than reinstall the App as I have got quite a way and don't want to start again. Thx.
Oops, as an addendum, I tried closing the Ipod down by holding the top button and the home key at the same time, closed it down , restarted it and the game loads. Sorry I was premature here.
Iphone 8gb, same issues on start up....i was thinking maybe this is an issue with the saved game file, because when I load it up after reinstalling it will work fine. If I close and then try to reopen the game it hangs and then crashes. COME ON GUYS, this is the best game on the App Store so you need to get this fixed!!!!

I had the same issues with 8gb. But, I had the same issue with a couple of other apps but they sent out immidiate updates to resolve their issues. I didnt want to loose anything but grew tired of waiting for a update so I deleted and reinstalled AF. I didnt loose any saved infrmation and picked up where I left off but there are still afew little bugs. At least I can play again!

Helllo, I was getting this loading problem out of the blue. It happened about 3/4 times, it would stay at the loading screen then go back to the home screen. I decided to try playing a song, "Across the Universe" from the Movie Soundtrack, left it running and loaded AF again and it loaded! Hope that helps
I have a similar problem where it worked great and fine for a while until a couple of days ago it started to crash during start-up.
I proceded to uninstalling and reinstalling the app about 3 times, but now I have a different problem. The app will load (ocassionally), but it will not let me level up even when the exp bar thing has reached the end. It wont even let me lose since it restarts my progress, and it wont let me get to the map screen.

I collected a lot of crash logs from the community over the past week. As a result I was able to track down many of these problems and am confidant that most of these issues will be solved when the update we are working on now gets to you.
The hangs in the game can be related to one of several issues. One is the audio hanging (we have eliminated the audios ability to cause the game to hang in the next release). Another is that if the game previously was stopped with there were two tool blocks on the bottom of the screen the game will crash or hang (this has been fixed in the next release).
I appreciate the communities help in getting us the logs and ultimitly in solving the problems.
ok so i have the iphone 3g and i was experiencing the same problem with the freezing and not loading. Basically i read in an earlier post that it might be an audio problem and was suggested to listen to a song on the ipod before loading the game again...many people later posted that it still would not load after listening to music. The game does have a bug where the game will not load if it crashed due to an audio problem. Basically heres what to do....
Step 1: before you click on the game adjust your volume on the side of the iphone or itouch (either up or down, preferably both that's what i did)
Step 2: click the game and as it is loading ( where it says "takes about 30 seconds to load") adjust the volume in the same manner.
