All,

Has anyone noticed that with the new patch the settings are not saved?

I always turn off the music but when I close and reopen, the music is back on. Curious if this is just a problem I have and maybe I need to do a reinstall.

Thx,
jonpfl

I haven't noticed any difference to the settings, but I usually have the sound off anyway.

I have noticed a few more crashes when navigating around the menus, not in the game itself though.

Yes, after the last update my settings are not saved, so I have to turn the music off every single time I open the app. Not a deal breaker but definitely annoying.

Yet another incompletely tested update? Shocking. shake

Don't worry guys. It will only take a few months for it to be fixed.

Great. I just spent the last 20 minutes playing through a game, and now it crashes repeatedly on round 18/20. I restart the game, the AI sits there for a moment, then crash.

Okay, now can I get my $5 refunded? The game has had nothing but critical game bugs since release. Have some mercy on us and test your games.

I have had very few problems with the app and have enjoyed it immensely. I have also found the developer to be helpful and responsive. In fact, they already answered the OPs question where he asked it in another thread:

I have noticed 2 new issues since the patch

1) I was forced to sell a building to pay interest on a loan (I have 7 loans and it was during my opponents turn)

2) The settings are not being saved when I close and reopen LH (I always turn the music off and it always is back on when I reopen app). Is anyone else having this problem? If not, should I do a reinstall?

Thx,

Hi Jon,

#1 we have never seen and hope may just be some confusion over the popup which asks if you want to sell a building to pay interest. If you cancel this dialog, you should just automatically take another loan and the interest will be deducted from those 4 Francs received. You should never have to sell a building and there should not be a limit on loans.

#2 is a known issue which we are investigating and we think may only happen on iPad3.

Thanks for the report and let us know if you have any more issues.

We will continue to work on fixes and improvements!

I have found this to be well worth $5.

I suppose that is because you have actually had more than half of your games play to completion. I cannot say the same. The burn stings even more due to convincing my girlfriend to spend $5 so she could play with me.

Their complete lack of testing is proved in the post you have quoted. They claim the "settings not being saved" is only on the new iPad, when it is immediately obvious on my iPhone 4.

I have never had a game that can't be completed (playing on the original iPad) under any version, although I mostly play against humans only. The biggest question about the new update for me is has the Shipping Line bug been fixed? i.e. the one if you used the Shipping Line as your last legitimate normal move you could not use it as your end of game special action! Edit: Not a bug in the program, a bug in my memory of the rules. I can't go to the same place twice in a row shake

That doesn't sound like a bug. The one restriction on the final action is that you can't use the building your token currently occupies. If your last normal move is to use the shipping line, then you can only use it again on the final action if you own the line and sell it to displace your token.

In fact I have never had a game that I couldn't play to completion, but I only play on Game Center against other people (with iPhone 4). Do most of your games involve AI? Have you had games with no AI that you couldn't complete? You are the only person I see being very vocal about this, so I wonder if you have some rather unique set of conditions that you typically play under.

The shipping bugs appear when you have more than three ships.

The most recent crashing bug always happens on the AI's turn, yes.

Even in my multiplayer games, I add AI.

I can confirm that the bug that causes it not to save the settings is not limited to the new ipad. It also occurs on my iPad which is the previous generation.

Also, when I return to an ongoing game it no longer displays the "Last Moves" summary by default.

Yes, the fact the settings don't save and you can't permanently turn the music off is a total pain in the ass!

I've played this on my new iPad and it has the most ridiculous and obvious bug. I feel it shows just how poorly they have tested this game. The bug? Every time you load the game, it appear upside down, no matter which orientation you use. I can't believe that someone at the company saw this and said "fuck it, upload it to the App Store anyway".

Here we are months later and still no fix to the bug that won't save settings. Great.

I have this as well on my iPhone.

Despite your bitterness I tend to agree with you, especially after this last patch. They messed up what was previously working to fix some things that didn't really interfere too often.

It took me no more than 5 minutes on my ipad and my wifes iphone5 to discover the problems with the latest patch. Makes me wonder what they are doing for QC of their product, (rhetorical statement).
