Alpha 1.11 status

Here’s the email I got from Microsoft support today:

Thank you for contacting the Windows Phone App Hub Developer Support Team. My name is Marisa and I will be assisting you. Unfortunately, it appears that the update for your “Survivalcraft” app may have gotten stuck in the certification pipe-line. At this time, we will be forwarding this issue to our certification team to see if they can cancel the submission so that you can re-submit; we will contact you back soon with a status update. We sincerely apologize for the delay in certification for your app.

In short, it seems that my crunch before holiday was in vain :-( All the time I was on holiday the submission was stuck in the queue and they only cancelled it today. I have now resubmitted it, but it will have to start walking up the certification ladder from scratch. If we’re lucky and there are no more screwups it may be out by the end of this week.

If I had any access to the web during the holiday I might have noticed it sooner, but alas it was not to be. For the re-submission I will be looking at the progress much more closely :-)

      lol as the Facebook post states (read 1st comment too), that post was mostly a test to see how the Timeline Milestone posts looked and there was a note made that the update was not yet released from certification. The post wasn’t “early”, you just didn’t read it all the way =D. It was intentionally posted before the update was released and all future update posts will be held back until the update is available on the Marketplace.

    Seems too coincidental that this happened the same week Minecraft was being released on XBLA. I wonder if it got stuck in the certification pipe-line so Survivalcraft wouldn’t take away Minecraft sales…

      VERY doubtful. What’s far more likely is that SurvivalCraft was only one of many updates that got lost and this probably happens more frequently than we know.

    Hey, my idea is a Counter for the framerate in one Corner of the Screen. Would be Very nice if you could build this in.

      It’s a good idea… For anyone with developer skills, but I doubt it would be of any use to the average player… And surely kaalus already has that in his developer version… Still, I hope kaalus considers your idea, it would be “nifty”.

    Man that sucks really badly. Oh well and also for the counter i would prefer it that wasn’t there because ive played minecraft copies that have it and i hate it

      Well, that’s something that would almost-definitely be Optional if it were implemented. I can’t say 100% as I’m not Kaalus but I can’t see any reason why that would be made mandatory. Since it would likely be optional, it wouldn’t bother you =). IF it were ever implemented.

    Just an idea but if u still have it you could make a lite ad supported version of the game but of the first version=P just a thought!
