    Just saying.
    Do you even play Modern War? Because I've never seen you post anything in the Modern War forum in the 15 months I've been here, and none of this discussion applies to anything in Crime City anyway.

    If you could work out a way iOS users could delete the cache without the need to delete and reinstall the game it might be the single best thing you could do right now. I don't know the situation with Android devices, but those too if needed. The games get awfully bloated very fast. Thanks for starting this Dev Notes thing.

    There was and is no need for you to take that comment personally. Facts are facts. Respect your paying customers and you'll keep them around for longer, and maybe even attract new ones. The attitude you have just displayed is one of many reasons people decide to stop spending any amount of dollars on Gree products, or not even start in the first place.

    I stated previously that I do not play MW. That does not in any way negate the usefulness of this kind of thread for any or all of Gree's titles.

    Just a friendly reminder to please keep things civil towards all others, including our Developers. Additionally, please try and keep the discussion in this thread focused on the Dev Notes for Modern War specifically. Feel free to discuss other games in their respective forums!

    Goals Folder

    I'd like to make a suggestion regarding the Goals folder. You currently have active events listed in the Individual goals tab, making it very cluttered. How about a 3rd tab to list the events and mission plans? That way the individual tab will be as easy to navigate as the faction tab. Nothing new, just a simple means of clearing up some clutter and addressing an issue many people have commented on in various posts.

    You need to take a media training session. Being snarky with your customers will never get you anywhere - that's if you care.

    Nearly blew a rib laughing at your post here mate.. Welcome to the jungle, aka the dirty, aka the forum.... If you or any of the other devs think for one second that your gonna be welcomed with open arms after all issues with this platform then you have either not done your homework and actually read the thousands of pages of pi ssed of customers or the mods have not passed on our overall satisfaction.

    So a couple of choices you have as I see it... If you want to continue to come to the dirty then grow some thicker skin and take your lumps because quite frankly you and everyone on your team deserve every single one of them. With that said it should be noted that because this game is now so f'd up, all the most recent good/cool things done are so over shadowed by constant debacles of each event. Of course the next choice would be never return here again or at least not until you and your MW team have something to hang your hat on..... In other words be game of choice to your "PAYING" customers...

    Geez, someone comes on to relay game info to you guys and you start in with all the BS again. No need to insult those trying to help cause it gets you nowhere.

    Having a message all button for the leader and officers would be great. It's time consuming having to post the same message on 60 walls.
    Also having a co-leader is good too.
    A way to build multiple walls.

    Thanks

    Co-leader isn't a bad idea, but more often than not, rather unnecessary as you can pass leadership around. A message all button though, who uses the in game chat anyway? It's small and hard to read, has a ridiculous character limit, and is filled with junk from all of the donations & declarations. There are far better external options.

    IOS doesn't cache data in the sense that I think you are describing. Funzio built the documents and data file into the game which contains game data and graphics. Lots and lots of data, mine is currently just over 3.2GB and though I can go into the system and nuke it, just like taxes it keeps comeing back so you wind up having to redownload the entire mess depending on how long you have been playing which bumps up your data useage. On IOS the app seems to need at least 1GB of free memory in order to load properly especially when new data is being pushed from their servers.

    The other issue with 4.5.2 is that there may be corrupted data or incompatible data in the current data set which causes the game to choke when it tries to rebuild a deleted dataset. This is what I believe is the root cause of log in issues with players on non IOS 8 devices at the moment. So removing that dataset can lock you out if you had been limping along up to this point, I proved this on two of my three identical iPod touch 4th gens and a test iPad 1st gen by updating to 4.5.2 and subsequently bricking them as far as this app is concerned.

    On the Android side, the app does not flush updates properly and as a result as time goes on these updates use up all your available storage space and must be manually deleted. One sidenote to this is that low memory (system) not storage suffer a lot from drawing issues because they cannot load all the graphics required by the app to display your base! This has been an ongoing issue on one of our test devices for over a year.

    AO, I'm serious, without your input, I would be so very lost to this issue of data.

    Thank you for always being objective, and, sharing your insight here. Much respect.

    Why is there never a GREE rep troubleshooting these issues on this forum with us? Asking too much I assume...
