I have 1.0 on my iPhone 3G and it crashes all the time. I can't even get the update to install. "The application "Aurora Feint" was not installed on the iPhone because an unknown error has occurred. 0xE800002E."
I get the occasional crash but not enough to really bother me and the crashes have had no after effects like some people are reporting. Have been playing for ~2 days now on a black 16GB iPhone...the thing that is bothering me the most is that blueprints aren't built for me when % >100 and I have no way of stopping at 100% and it doesn't stop on its own. That means that I have real problems getting blueprints built
AF reliably crashes at startup whenever Exchange Active Sync is used. AF crashes at 7-8 seconds in. The only way to fix it I have found is to delete and re-install the game. I have also found that I have to clear the player's info after re-install because the game is in some kind of invalid data state where the resources, level, skills, etc don't work together.
iPhone 1st gen. Crashes more after update. I can't really put my finger on how or when. Seems to happen after I've been playing for awhile. Love the game and am intrigued by the bigger picture aspect of it.
I have several free apps on my phone. around 15 or so. Could space be an issue with the frequency of crashes.
Also i seem to have developed a case where the program won't start now. It opens to the splash screen then just goes to the iPhone desktop.
When this has happened before if I shut down the phone and restart it it seemed to clear up this issue.
I've progressed pretty far in the games levels so I'm reluctant to reload the app for fear of losing my character.
OK quick update-I had increasing problems with AF crashing then came up with a totally unsubstantiated theory that space may be an issue.
It got so bad that AF would not startup-it would goto the splash screen and then back to the iPhone desktop.
Deleted about half of my apps (all free) tried AF again-no luck Restarted iPhone tried AF again-no luck Deleted AF from my iPhone and re sync Whoo Hoo! First time i've seen the opening movie-(very Cool) and still have all my Character's progress.
Hope this helps-maybe others may test this theory-again unsubstatiated
Here's something new (although I haven't read each-every post and all the problems that people are having). After getting impatient with AF crashing each time I tried starting, I erased it from my iphone, resynced with computer, lost all of my saved info, but the games works. Kinda. The game starts with the fancy intro movie, sends you right to the mine, where you begin mining and mining and mining and mining...with no end or level ups in sight.
Starting over and getting all the level ups is easy to do but I'm getting less and less patient with this game's instability and unpredictable performance. Here's hoping for a silver bullet update in the near future.
The game crashes all the time... I've lost my progress so many times, I often hesitate to play until the next update is out. I've scanned the thread quickly, so hopefully this isn't a repeat:
The highly recurring and consistent crash in the mine is when 2 tool blocks are adjacent. I never 2-finger flick the screen to fill it up anymore. I have to keep an eagle eye on the bottom row, and immediately move any tools out of the bottom row to a higher row. These crashes cause mine progress to be lost.
Higher levels increase the frequency of the tools. I'm sure this is why some people think there aren't many crashes. They simply haven't leveled up.
I've been playing this game since the week it was released. I now have a problem where it crashes and takes the phone back to the app menu screen after the AF load screen. Help please. I'm at a level that I don't want to lose, especially after all those challenging hours.
The problem is not self-correcting like the previous crashes. Every time I open it now, it returns the he iPhone menu.
Yeah, deleting other non-AF apps won't help (unless you have a jailbrake) because those apps can't even run at the same time as AF. You're just wasting your time when you do that. Best thing to do if you can't fix with a restart is to wait for the next update.

My wife and I have two new 3G iPhone and have been playing virtually non stop since we got the phones.. We are around 4/8 to 8/8 on lots of the options and we have crashes consistently. Every time we play we'll have a crash.. usually just during mining it will simply freeze.
Its very frustrating because the game is so addictive.. I have yet to update my iPod to the new firmware, but i'm keen to try it on that to see if it has the same issues.
If more information is needed on the crashing, please let me know.
But keep up the awesome job on this game.. I think its by far the best game out there in the App Shop.
