Rogue -- Immediate Crash Problem

Post by Chris-M » Sat Dec 27, 2008 3:03 pm

Grabbed this for my iPhone earlier this week and have loved every minute I've been playing it. The last night, a couple hours after the last time I played it, I fired it up to continue the game I was playing, and the app crashed right after it shows the sideways ascii "opening credits" screen. It now does this every time I try to play. I hadn't synced between the last time I played and the first crash, and haven't installed anything new to the phone. I tried a restore, but that didn't work either.

I guess my next step is going to be to remove the app from my iPhone and to try reinstalling it. I don't mind doing that, but I do have some fear that this is going to happen again.

I just wanted to bring this to your attention. I wish I had some details that might prove helpful in identifying a bug here, but I really can't think of anything. There was and is absolutely nothing different I can think of from the last time it worked to now.

Yeah exactly the same! The only game I wanted for the iPhone, been hanging out for it for ages, stoked that you've ported, it, but... concerned by inexplicable random crash!
Luckily only on level 2, not far into a game, I went back to desktop, and next time I started Rogue it crashed after the credits screen. Rebooted, same thing. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it hasn't done it since. But, what if I were on the 400th level with a backpack full of wands and hands covered in rings with the most awesomest sword you can imagine and it happened then?? I'd be proper upset.
A scary prospect, but not scary enough to stop me playing.
Looking forward to Nethack. Mmm, nethack.

Ditto, everything from excited being excited to be able to play this on my iphone :) , to the exact same hang on the credits screen - (pops right back to the iphone main menu) . This occured after leaving a game by hitting the iphone home button. I went right back in to make sure it was going to 'save' the game, but now I can't even get back in. I tried rebooting, syncing but no such luck... very sad .. will wait briefly for a reply before deleting the app and reinstalling, in case there is a dump or something I can send while I can still recreate the problem!

At some point the save game file became corrupted - not sure how or why, but it did. And there's no easy way around that currently except to deinstall and reinstall.

Same problem here. I got Rogue after seeing it mentioned in Edge's list of 50 cool iPhone games (congrats on that, btw). I thought i would like to see how up-to-date the save would be if Rogue got interrupted by a call. I played for less than a minute, pressed Home, and now the game won't start any more. Now i was really looking forward to Rogue (and Nethack), but i regret to say that this is a show-stopping bug for me.
