Sigh. Seriously, FFG, ever heard of server-side storage? Or just use GameCenter, for the love of Cthulhu.


Agreed - I was kinda miffed to see my scores get erased. This is a fun little game, and I think having a centralized GameCenter leaderboard would give it even more legs.

C'mon guys - you've clearly put a lot of work into creating a nice app, what's so hard about dropping in some basic GC leaderboard functionality?

Considering one of the main complaints about this game is how the scores are so meaningless and the way they're calculated is totally wrong (winning quickly and decisively scores lower than barely winning/almost losing), why are we complaining that the scores are being reset?

Anyway, downloading now... And hooray, I've got the day off tomorrow for Good Friday so I foresee taking down a lot of GOO's in the near future

Just updated and bought the expansion for Android... but it's not working properly here.
Once I opened the updated game the first time, I went to the "options" and it connected to the online store (the FFG one I suppose) and showed me this button with the possibility to purchase the expansion. I pressed it, and after some loading the market opened up and it let me complete my purchase.

Then, I opened the game again, went to the options again, it connected to the online store, and the button was still there: the game thinks I've not bought the DLC! So I tried to purchase it again, and after some thinking it opens up the market again and tells me there's an error and the product will be delivered soon. The market closes, and Elder Signs opens up again. This time, going to the options and letting him think again the buttons is finally "saturated" and shows that I have the expansion and that I can play the extra campaign.

Well, cool and great I suppose! Too bad that when I closed the game and reopened it the same happened again!
There's evidently some kind of bug, or maybe it's some kind of problem with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S). Has anyone else experienced it?

I updated my version and grabbed the DLC. Just go to start game and it should give you a choice of Old Ones, pick Cthulhu, that's the DLC.

I know it, I've played it after doing the purchase-again trick, the problem is that every time I start the game I have to try to purchase it again to make it work, otherwise it doesn't recognize I have the expansion (the expansion appears grey in the list, Cthulhu and the additional investigators remain locked, etc...).

Well, that was quick: there's a new update on the Market with a specific fix for my problem (as well as other issues with Samsung devices). Downloading it right now, hope it solves all the problems. ninja

EDIT: everything seems solved, and the expansion seems to work as it should now. That's a quick fix! cool

Thanks for posting this. As usual, we saw a post in the News section when the iOS update came out, with nothing posted for the Android version.

Downloaded today.

Just updated last night. Kinda disappointing that you need to beat Azathoth or whatever his name is to get the new people, since he's the guy we've been playing all along, so I wanted to try out Yig.

+1

The scoring system is indeed absolutely meaningless, and I'm disappointed that it wasn't overhauled, or removed and replaced with a straight up stats system (games won/lost, etc.).

But the Cthulhu campaign is terrific. A great addition to the game and also very very challenging. I've won once out of about 10 tries, and that victory was with a 1 in 6 shot on the last possible glyph coming up Peril.

The new investigators are great to have, too.

Just followed the link for Android, and the site stated that the app was not compatible with my phone. I have an LG Optimus 2. I am very new to smartphones, and I realize that this is considered a "beginner" smartphone. Is this common with starter phones? Is there a good chance that my phone will be supported in the future? Thanks for the help!

Haven't downloaded the new Cthluhu campaign yet, but Yig is super easy. The normal Azathoth campaign is already kind of easy in my mind, but Yig seems to just roll over and die on his own. It was worth playing once, but I doubt I'd ever play it again unless I'm teaching the game to a child/non-gamer.

I don't understand how to update my Elder Sign Omens for my MacBook Pro.
I see these available for three bucks each, but don't understand how to purchase them:

The Call of Cthulhu
The Trail of Ithaqua
The Dark Pharaoh

Are they even available for my device?
Thanks for any help.
