Alpha 1.11 issues

[Edit] The issue has now been identified and does not require a reinstall to fix. See the following post for details.

It seems that a lot of people cannot load or create a new world after updating to Alpha 1.11.

Reinstall seems to be the only way to fix this, and it has been confirmed as a working workaround by one person so far. Note: before reinstalling backup your worlds to Dropbox, otherwise you’ll lose them.

I am at a loss about the cause of this. It didn’t happen on my phone (I updated a few hours ago), and looks like it strikes people completely at random. A world file taken from a broken install on one of the phones loads fine on my phone. My guess at the moment is that the update process somehow screws up the binaries of the game. The game itself seems to be OK.

If someone has an unlocked phone and a broken install after the update (i.e. worlds don’t load), before reinstalling, please can you get the binaries off the phone and email them to me?

1.11 is now officially Really Unlucky :-(

    Kaalus, reinstalling the game did not help at all. Cannot load or create new world. Says ‘loading’ and then it jumps back to main screen. Also tried switching the phone off/on but without any success. HTC HD7, never had a problem with that before :(

    Please help :'(

      When the world does not load, does it die at “Loading World” or “Generating Terrain” text?

          I found the problem (I hope). Is your audio volume setting set to 0 in game? Can you set it to max and tell me if that fixes the problem?

    I just got the update with no problems on HTC Arrive. Also i thought how nice it would be to grow grass around my built up areas, so i was thinkingyou could add a rake that would cue the growth of grass on chosen dirt blocks

        Growing stuff will come sooner or later. At the moment it’s lower priority than dangerous creatures.

    Well I had no problems at all. If you didn’t get the update, search for survivalcraft in the marketplace, the update might just not be shown on the main screen. And well I think it would be awesome if monsterspawners could come along with dangerous creatures(imagine the possibilities in adventure maps or you could also make a farm with cattle).. :D Nice update though. Btw is it a bug or should this be: when you place a really long line of explosives, after a certain number of them they stop exploding and you have to set them on fire again! (no space between the fuses)

      They will stop exploding when the explosion line reaches end of visible world. No way around that sadly.
