    Latest update - 7.9.0 Completely broken on iOS for iPad Mini

    First I thought the new table Sorcerer was borked. Nope. It's the whole damn app. Tried everything. Reset iPad Mini (1st gen iOS 9.0+) after installing, re-installed application (bye scores and goals, hope it was worth it - oh darn, it wasn't). Can't isolate why it's crashing because it does it EVERYWHERE. When you save a high-score attained - CRASH. In the middle of a game. CRASH. When you check leaderboards. CRASH.

    Used to be rock solid but now it's a unplayable pile of crap. Well I can wait 30 more days until whatever has BTFO'd the app-entire out to be fixed and I can enjoy all these years of tables I bought that are now unusable. Yay.

    (also while re-installing the app I noticed there's 2 of them in the store TPA and TPA plus!? What's the difference?)

    If you haven't already done so, please report this to FarSight support. Need to make sure they are aware of this so they can get to fixing it. This is just a fan forum and although some FS employees do come in here, there is no guarantee they will see this thread. That's why is so important to send an e-mail to FarSight support. Make sure to also tell them the device and version of IOS you are currently using. thanx

    Just did - ty! (I saw the posts from the employees here so I did it here first). I also posted here to see if any other 1st gen iPad mini users or (as I suspect) iPad 2 users (since we are in the same boat from a tech-standpoint).

    I am having a similar problem on iPad2. Everything used to work swimmingly, until the Sorcerer update. Now I can play for around 2 minutes (maybe a score of 50m on Adams Family) then the table starts to stutter, and very soon afterwards, the app crashes. putting me out to a blank screen, and the iPad home screen about 30 seconds later. I will rport to FS. Hope they can fix this as I too have many paid for tables and don't want to buy a new tablet.

    Is this happening on every table? Have you tried closing all other apps before you start TPA?

    Also, as of the newest update, the slingshots on TZ kick the ball but don't register in game, making it impossible to get specials. And the leapers in SS don't work at all, making it impossible to get to the stiff-o-meter without the secret passage lane.

    EDIT: the left spiral light above the loop doesn't work either.

    iPad mini 1st gen here. Same exact prob. All tables eventually stutter and crash since update. Guessing memory leak or overflow issue.

    Years of expensive purchases down the drain.

    Is that something we have to do now? Because you didn't have to before. Btw that's a myth. Except mail nearly zero apps perform background tasks in iOS. But for **** I tried it.

    OMG!

    TPA still stuttered and died like a *****.

    I was just asking to see if it would help. I’m not an IT guy and I don’t work for Farsight. Sometimes things like closing apps helps and sometimes it doesn’t.
    Be sure to send the issue to Farsight support. Make sure they know there is a major issue. Be sure to include what device you are using and the version of iOS it is running.

    Both tables were updated, it blows my mind how obvious bugs like these get through testing.

    I swear Farsight has no QA at all.

    Same here, crashes after a minute or two on my iPad 2. The app has also started to crash on my iPhone 6 Plus but much more sparingly. On the iPhone you can play for a pretty long time but eventually it crashes. No probs prior to this update.

    If I were to randomly guess it sounds like a memory overflow or leak that shows up in older devices faster because of less headroom, but will show on newer devices similarly but later because of more space available. This is kind of a noob error which indicates this release was very very rushed.

    Is there anyone who doesn’t have this problem? Is TPA essentially useless for all iOS users? Fantastic update!
    Btw, I’ve sent Farsight a crash report from my iPhone 6 Plus, I urge everyone to do the same.

    I guess this is a memory leak. It happens after 30 to 60 minutes of play.
    Very annoying those random crashes. Never had this before and I played all official tournaments for hours.
    Also the table select screen wiggles on my ipad air, never seen before.

    We believe we resolved the issue and will be testing it before submitting it to Apple. The patch will only be for addressing the memory leak and we hope to release it on as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    After the update ...

    IT WORKS!

    All systems go. All tables functioning again. Tested for at least 30-45 minutes. No problems!

    Perhaps it doesn’t crash, but all of my high scores, goals, and HOF. points have disappeared now.

    That just leaves SPA which suffers from the same bug and is still only playable for 10-20 minutes before inevitably crashing
