I'm curious if there any people who, for the most part, have no problems playing AF. In the limited testing that we do here with our few devices we've seen very few crash bugs. Before we pushed this update even we had played for hours without any problems. We've managed to reproduce a lot of the crashes you guys have found with the help of the crash logs and your detailed instructions though. Once Apple opens up their Beta Testing program we'll definitely be taking people from here to help us out!
Anyway, please post here if you have encountered few or no problems playing AF. I'm trying to get a sense for how widespread these are or if we just have a very vocal fan base
Asking people to report no problems isn't going to be that effective, they aren't likely to come to the forum looking for assistance. You might be better off setting up a poll where you give users the ability to indicate the level of problems on a scale of perhaps 1 to 5. Then you can compare the number of respondents to the scale. If the poll only allows each user to vote once then you don't have to worry about one person biasing the results.
Prior to the release of this new "update" i never once experienced a bug, crash, problem.
I am running a 32gb Ipod Touch.
Now that this new update has taken place, i get crashes or freezes near any screen transition (ie, screen goes to switch to the upgrade screen after i have completed a level, and the will freeze before it gets to the screen maybe 30% of the time.
also, this new update was after i installed a few other apps, so its hard to say if its localized just to the game, something else may be trying to access the vid processor, at the same time, but i doubt it.
so prior to the update, no bugs, this update, its like switching to vista.
I am running a 3G iPhone, have been playing AF for 4 days.
The first day, it appeared to run normally.
Second day, I tried to back up the iPhone and ran into the "infinite mining" situation where I had several thousand crystals and couldn't get back to the store. Numerous re-loads from iTunes did not solve the problem. Finally, I (somehow?) got to the character screen (had not been able to do so before) and did an in-game re-set.
Since then, it seems to be running well. It does crash every once in a while (maybe 1-2x a day.) Have not isolated what I'm doing when that happens, will try to keep track.
Rather than a simple +1 or "no problems" it might be useful for people to say what they are running the game on (iPhone / iPod), what size (8, 16, 32 GB) and what version of the game are they playing (updated or not). And any special conditions. (jailbroken or not) (application downloaded from iTunes or somewhere else)
I'm running version 188.8.131.52 on a 16GB iPod Touch. Application was downloaded from iTunes and this version has been reinstalled 3 times. I experience crashes while mining, usually just before being able to level up. The crashes were about every 30 minutes of game time.
I have a first generation iphone 8 gig that has been jail broken. I downloaded from my phone and got the update when it appeared.
I would say for the most part the game runs great and I have very few problems. I get a crash only once in a while, it happened last night after a long session, about 45 minutes. Sometimes i happens when i get an incoming phone call. If i recall correctly I remember it crashing the other day when a bunch of combos were going on and i was doing the shake move at the same time. But like i said these crashes are rare and I'm happy to say I get to play a lot with minimal problems.
Well prior to the update the only problem i had was app loading and crashing or returning to home menu. but at least when i played it never froze. After the update, it freezes almost every game I would say 8 out of 10 times...I sometimes hold my breathe hoping it won't freeze while in game. I have deleted and re-installed so many time, but so far the list you guys have shows that it has been or will be taken care of... One other thing is the leveler, it seems to be stuck on enlighten level 3 then resets to enlighten level 0....... I do have 16GB iphone... 1st gen
I have an 8GB iTouch. Up until today (I've had the update since it was released) I had little to no crashes. When it did crash it was actually a good thing as it meant additional crystals for me, so of course I didn't complain. Today though I started to encounter continual crashes while mining, and after I reboot the game it makes me start back at the last place I was when I last exited the game. This is particularly annoying if I've been playing for a while without exiting or crashing. It doesn't seem to crash at the blueprint games or magicbook games, only while mining and as I said this is a new thing. I don't know if it is because I am further along in the leveling or what. Hopefully though the next update will solve these issues.
