Big thanks for all the reports on the network error. I have now determined the cause – it’s Android 4.3. Google have recently released a new version of their OS and, surprise surprise, things are broken. One of the bugs is causing the message box you’ve seen in the last post to appear when the game tries to access the network. Another one broke looping of sounds – if you have Android 4.3 you can verify it by setting something on fire and listening to the burning sound. It will stop after a few seconds.
There is a workaround for the first bug, i.e. the network one, and I put it in.
The sound bug unfortunately does not have any workarounds – I have to wait for a fix from Google. If you want to tell these guys how much we need it, please go there and star the issue . 85 stars is way not enough :-)
I am preparing a special bugfix release (1.22.7) for Google Play only. It will fix the networking bug on 4.3. There will be no new features.
