    After initial contact, I then got this

    att.net gave this error:
    A.B.C.D blocked by sbc:blacklist.mailrelay.att.net. DNSRBL: Blocked for abuse. See AT&T


    Think we should probably knock that on the head. You need to have a word with your ISP as you might be missing all sorts of stuff.

    Yeah i don't know what that is all about. Well i got your other email to my gmail account. "testing, Testing" Can you allow me access to the beta through that account. i assume you are just going to send a apk file or do i need to sign up through the website somewhere.

    That's the problem - that was the address I replied to, though it might be thunderbird at fault there. :s

    Next beta will probably be full public so I'll just post a link here. The only reason I've not done it yet is that our server isn't geared up for mass hosting.

    Sent through a few logs today, crashes every time I complete a level, restart game and I'll be on my last turn again, complete the level and then its fine on the second go... strange one.

    Thanks. Probably music related - we're having a devils own time with sound on some machines atm.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Android development :(

    Hopefully once you start to find your feet you'll find its not all bad working with Android, if you look at Mika Mobiles website you'll see some really interesting posts from them about their experience going from iOS to Android - you're definitely not alone!

    Your game is amazing, thanks for sticking at it for us!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I just thought we'd be closer to the end game when we went into Beta is all.

    We're all good here though - our company has a past involving porting all manner of games to all manner of devices, some very bizarre, and Android has nothing scary for us - quite enjoying it. The great level of feedback we're getting from testers is helping a lot.

    Hi guys

    Not installed the second beta yet - as still trying to finish the next to last level :)

    Don't get too long to play games so every minute counts. Do you have other SGS2 users posting you any feedback from the 2nd beta? If not I'll un-install the 1st to get going with the 2nd :)

    Heh, I guess we nailed the addictive part then :)

    No worries, we're interested in reports of the game generally now and are getting great feedback. Seems we have a load of crashes related to sound and some dodgy texturing issues on certain makes of phone but otherwise we're fairly close to stable.

    Pretty good. Our Nexus S arrived today so that should be the end of those crappy texturing issues. All other crashes were related to sound which we're slugging our way through.

    (Audio on Android is no joke when using the native interface. There are several libraries to give you a head start, all of them buggy or feature light or both. Boooo)

    When we think we've nailed the sound stuff, the next Beta should roll out and we have high hopes of that being the last one. :)

    Not sure on the status of any one bug on one phone atm. We're trying to nail everything we got back in one fell swoop but only the next beta can verify if we managed it or not.

    We can't buy Droid X here though so this one's more about hoping one of the reproducible bugs nails it.

    Thanks and no worries. If it came to it, I'll fly over, buy one on high street and fix it in a hotel lobby. Wouldn't be the first time.... :eek:

    Why not just get an iPhone? You'll have access to all the best Appstore games first instead of begging for scraps like old dogs?

    Personally I'm just busy playing the game...

    Rubicon - finally on the last level of the first beta - virtually finished it (much easier than the previous level ;) ) so can't wait to try the next beta and go through it again.

    Although at my speed, I may well have to settle for the 3rd beta :)
