Lots of bugs seem to be fixed, thanks!

BUT I still have two of them on my rug:

- the game still freezes for two seconds when hitting the exit arrow after spinning the wheel

EDIT:

- still can't buy missing parts for Plant Food and others

EDIT2:

EDIT3:

FINAL EDIT:

I will delete bugs in this post as soon as they're repaired in the game. So if this post is empty, you've done your job.

Thank you.

Where is at least some info about the Halloween tracks? Or they won't be released in this update (once again...)? It's like the main thing I am waiting for in this game now. And yeah, fixes for the LBs... Plenty of people just disappeared from them, I can't see Donkey LB at all, for example.

Reposted from TFG: New update 5.0.0(iOS) bugs!

I installed the update and played for 30 minutes. Here's what I'm seeing:

1) As noted by others, there's a new "More Games" button on the options page.

2) Leaderboards are still missing most or all players. I assume this is more of a server issue than an update issue?

3) TapJoy rewards still do not work (no reward after watching video, for example)

4) Purchasing from chip shop caused audio stuttering followed by game crash. Happened twice in a row for two different items. Thankfully, purchased items were in inventory after app restart. Haven't tried since...
** Edit ** Tried again...same thing (different devices)

5) TapJoy videos seem to have disappeared (so far) from the loot wheel respin after completing a track. This is a good thing, as TapJoy videos still offer no reward (in this case, a respin).

6) I can't comment on login issues, as I am now conditioned to log in/out of every play session

what justification is there for giving priority to IOS - that sucks

j.pan

Simple: Most IOS players pay for every zhit, some android players hack every zhit. Sad, but at the end of the day, true.
Cheater overview, created by @bonxy: http://trials.bonxy.net/notes/cheaters

Whole thing get's boring: every update new overprized bikes, fake records, missing track parts, & missing bike blueprints not available, laggy server, missing funny, hidden things. Development is made for profit optimizing only.

Five hours bunker showdown? Really, who want's that? One or two hours are more than enough.

if you hack a game, you're not a player, you're a ******* ****

never hacked a game, never will, it's pretty pointless. im on android.

The in game leaderboards on iOS just do not work at the moment.

I believe the justification is purely economical. As far as I understood, the development is fairly separated, perhaps except for the core gameplay, for iOS and Android, and requires extra time and staff resources for maintaining leaderboards, in-app purchases, etc. Having that in mind, I would personally, hypothetically being from RedLynx, give priority to the platform, that has a better return on investing of those resources and staff. Which just so historically happens to be iOS. It must suck to see cheating, pirating, adjusting currency etc. having put the same effort.

PS: It only sucks if you have an Android phone. It feels just wonderful for iPhone owners, I can verify. It's all relative.

These should be priority fixes/additions.

What a ridiculous generalisation. People pay for stuff on Android too and at the last count, Android had more players (even if you discount the 30 or so hackers spoiling everything). Ergo, you're talking nonsense.

As mentioned above - Android has more players therefore it would make more economical sense to cater for Android, if what you say were true, which it is not. However, I hope this bike can be obtained for free/by playing the game. Otherwise this game just went from F2P to P2W by releasing this OP bike.

No need to gloat! :p

You seem to have tried contradicting with what I said but if you think about it - what I said and what you said may very happily co-exist. There may be more players. But that doens't automatically make it economically more justified. What matters is profit, not the number of players. Now, we of course may only speculate on which platform brings more money. But my gut feeling and reverse engineering of the decision of devs to focus on iOS somehow tells me there is more money on iOS. We can of course argue that more free players means more competitors for the paying ones, but that's a much longer chain of economical decision making then direct profit per player.

So yes, what I said is not true if you put equality between number of players and actual profit. You are absolutely right with your conclusion about what you thought and not what I actually said.

To be honest, unless developers comment on this or share profit numbers, which they most probably won't and I being them wouldn't too, we can only speculate about the true nature of the decision. Maybe the iOS code is the main development branch, while Android is a hack-y add-on. Maybe there are app market restrictions. Maybe they're shirt on men and threw a coin to what platforms gets an update first. Maybe it's indeed about one platform bringing more green that the other (which I believe is). Maybe the game backend architecture is such that the changes to Android simply have to be propogated through releases on iOS first. Who knows? One thing I doubt is that Android is simply ignored out of some sort of unsympathy "just because".

From my console gaming experience this is most likely just a contract between the publisher (Apple) and developers.

- Game crashes when i buy something from the bunker shop, at least the item is in my inventory
- still can't buy missing missing parts from dark smoke (9/10 parts)
- MC isn't working correct, I get one try for 2 hours of waiting.
- blueprints for old bikes like KTM 500 are not buyable, but of course we can buy a new bike with real money. :rolleyes:

FOR PEOPLE WHO GET THE GLITCH WHERE YOU GET 1 ATTEMPT AFTER WAITING 2 HOURS
When you enter the midnight circuit and it says 0/5 tries remaining and lets you have 1 attempt... DO NOT USE IT.
Press the home button and then head back into midnight circuit and it gives you all 5 attempts.


Hope this helps.

Was about to write the same thing: Just make sure that it says 5/5 or 10/10 when pressing the "Race" button. In addition - also wait for the green light on the leaderboard.

When the race button is illuminated in the MC, if you don't have all your retires you can log out and back in and this gives you all 5/10 retires back.

The iOS track leaderboard issue is a server side issue.

The missing riders from global leaderboards I don't know. I can't understand why people would disappearing unless they recalculated them and messed it up.

The log in issue does seem to be fixed though. *High 5* 😇

The leaderboards issue needs addressing urgently. What is trials without leaderboards ??

Sort of fixed...I still need to occasionally log out and back in, but maybe only once per day. I'm good with that.

No kidding! Right now I'm playing only to max out bike upgrades. No leaderboards = no good. Afraid to set new PBs. Not a freaking chance in hell I'm buying the Bandito with broken leaderboards.
The clock is ticking, I'm not ready to give up Trials just yet but if things continue as-is there will be no reason to play.

What's up with the two top times on iOS Midnight Circuit?
(Plus, I'll try log in/out in about 21 minutes to get back to having 5 retries instead of 1 every two hours ;) )

Still can't log in Midnight Circuit - connection error!
I managed to get through there the track once - then I have always this error.
Tried to reinstall the game - did not help. Technical support wrote - do not answer for 4 days.
Please help me to solve the problem, because there are only two days...

Format of the MC is great,like it,totally skill based,but the rewards we get are truly not.
Why would I grind for a whole week,just to get a few jems and golden tickets.
Will not miss anything even if I didn't play.
