We recently discovered that due to a bug in Apple’s Game Center example code our games crash on devices upgraded to iOS 5 with Game Center enabled.

An upgrade fixing this problem is already on its way to Apple, but it will surely take few day to get approved. But there also is a temporal solution to play Neuroshima Hex & Neuroshima Hex Puzzle while waiting for the update:

1. Launch Game Center app.

2. Log out from Game Center.

3. Launch NSHex or NSHexPuzzle

You won’t be able to earn any new achievement or leaderboards points, but except from that both games should work just fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and support!

    Doesn’t work.

    Game crashes EVERY time.

    I’ve tried the steps above, done a soft reset, a hard reset, and just about anything else I could think of. And it still crashes EVERY time.

    This is incredibly disappointing. I would hope an emergency patch is being sent to Apple NOW.

    Could you also try killing NSHex if its sitting in the background and then logging out?

    Worked for me! Yay!

    Perhaps also re-state that he/she should not re-log into his game center account after the game launches? :)

    This temporary fix seems to work on my phone. Thanks!

    This solved the problem. Looking forward to the official fix next!

    Hmm… the ios 5 fix is out, but after applying it I have lost both of the expansion armies. Has this happened to others?

  7. Łukasz on Tuesday 25, 2011

    @John, you just need to re-download the armies. Tap every army you want to re-download as you would buy them – the system popup should appear saying you’ve already paid for it and it will be downloaded for free.

    @Josh, not John, of course :)

    Thanks Lukas. I’ve just send it.

    I’m having crashing problems on iPod 4.2.1. Logging out of game center does not fix the problem. I sent an email with screenshots.

    Hi all.
    I want to start with saying that I love this. Fun, fast and frustrating;)
    However the problem I have is that when I upgraded my phone from a iPhone 3GS to a iPhone 4S I no longer have the extra armies that I bought. Do you guys have the same problem?

  14. Edward on Monday 12, 2011

    Opps, just read answer above and it works. Just tap and it will state already purchased and will install. Thx and sorry to bother you. Great game! Love it.
