no more power offs or ipods or anything just follow the steps
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. It crashes when two tool blocks are on top of each other due to two different sound effects trying to play at the same time. 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.
The game played fine at first. Then it started crashing. Then not starting at all. After the update, it worked fine. I started getting the "low on memory" pop-up, so I cleared up 1.5GB of free space. (I figured this explained the crashing from before.) It played fine, then it started crashing again. First after playing for about 10 minutes, then 5, then at startup. Now it won't open at all.
I have not been able to play at all all the versions have done this to me. I am attempting to get into the beta program so that I can help the devs figure this out. Hopefully after the next update we can get over this.
I am having the same problem on my new 3G 16gig iPhone. I also had the problem on my 8gig 1st generation iPhone. I have tried the audio adjust several times with no luck. The only thing that works for me is to delete the program and download it again via iTunes. It will play the first time after a download, then never again.
I love this game, but this is becoming increasingly frustrating. HELP!
