If you have this issue, try soft resetting your device..
1. Go to Home Screen. 2. Hold Power & Home buttons for 5+ seconds, even after seeing the restart slider. 3. The screen will go black. 4. Press and Hold power button to start the device. 5. Wait 60 or so seconds while device is starting up. 6. Try the game again..
Hope that helps!
btw, soft reset will NOT clear your devices memory.
I've been experiencing the same issue. I've never been able to get padded the intro screen. It is more frustrating after reading all of the fantastic reviews! I have tried to uninstall and reinstall. It doesn't seem to have an effect.
I also tried a shutdown and then tried to run the program. After the splash screen it gave me a blank and I think asked me for a character name and then died immediately.
I'm using a 1.0 16GB iPhone. I upgraded to the 2.0 software and downloaded the program on Friday. I hope that is helpful. If anything changes I'll post here.
Such a wonderful game! I had no problems closing and opening the application until I synced my phone today.
I downloaded via wi-fi last night and closed and openened it several times. I played this morning as well. Once I connected to iTunes and synced, it gave me the loading crash. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times and have had no luck.
I love this game! Please find a way to fix it. In my mind it's the best game on the iPhone by FAR! I can tell you guys put a lot of work into it. It shows. Good luck on the bug fixes!
I have the same start up problem as well on a old iphone 8g, rebooting the phone and reinstalling doesn't work, reinstall will let me play one game and the next time I try to play I just get the splash screen
