This has been a mental last three months in the development of Conman the Game. The Valentine’s Day Update unexpectedly produced weird bugs – not unlike how some Valentines Day dates can produce weird bugs. The bugs are annoying and hard to kill and ultimately need more than medicated shampoo to get rid of. Luckily the Con Man The Game tech team exterminated the suckers.

Bug 1:
Jack Moore Con bag with Wray Nerely’s face one it – Stomped
Bug 2: Distorting the expansion on the con goer’s floor – Poisoned.
Bug 3: Nathan and Alan’s cake frustrations – Blackmailed into suicide. (More Birthday cake next year!)
Bug 4: Issues around saving the game and retaining player progress – Disemboweled,
Eviscerated, and repeatedly taunted with politically questionable slang.

We are also working to make it easier to save your game without losing progress when deleting, re-downloading, and changing phones. Remember there is no shame in getting bugs, even Chewbacca’s had fleas. If you’re are having issues with your game being saved, fill out the form on this site in the GAME section. You can also reach out via the Conman Twitter/Facebook page about any bug or bug like related issues. Thanks to everyone and their continued support in making this game a success. It could not be possible without you!

Alan

Well, we finally squashed the spinning blue wheel of death. Thank you so much for your patience with that one. It was difficult for us to track down the culprit as we could not recreate the issue ourselves. Big thanks to the player who sent in their phone data and cracked the case and a big thanks to Frima Studio.

Bug squashing is a full-time job! Who knew? (OK, maybe we did a little.) With all the different Android devices, phone types, software versions, platforms… there are a plethora of combinations to figure out. (Always like it when I can find a way to use the word plethora – even if it may not be right.)

We are pushing up another set of bug fixes tomorrow. They should be ready for download on Monday. Apple likes to take a couple days before releasing them. This update targets that damn freezing fairy! Let’s hope we get this one. It’s another issue where we can’t recreate it and we know that there are some issues with Unity’s Ad server when your device goes in and out of Wi-Fi. Unfortunately we can’t do much about.

We also tackled the issues with boosts and buffs that weren’t paying out, as well as a host of other issues you guys reported.

User error, however, is an issue we have no control over. When a player writes over their cloud saved game after starting a new game, they are really screwed. Sorry about that, but we don’t keep your game data.

Another bug that I’m seeing is with Android devices that are not able to store to the cloud. There are a few tech articles I can share to show you the issue Google is having if you want them, but a short term fix is to log out of your Google Play account and then log back in again. It’s a Band-Aid, but we are waiting for Google to update their store.

Again, thank you for sending in your reports. We are always listening, even when we are working on Season 2 of Con Man. Some funny things coming! Find season 2 on Comic Con HQ this December 8th.

Thanks again!

Hey Everyone,

Some of you are having trouble loading your game and are getting stuck here:
blue-ball-of-death
There seems to be an issue when getting your saved game from Google and Apple. We are waiting on Google to make an update in their Google Play store, but in the mean time here is a temporary fix for the issue. It involves clearing the app data which I explain below for Android and Apple. This should getting you playing again.

1. Completely Uninstall the game.
2. Clear the App Data (in the Settings).
3. Reinstall the game.

When opening the game again after that you will be requested to make a Save Selection between Cloud and Local (the Local Save will show only a New Game).
At that point, please select Cloud Save to retrieve your progression.

HOW TO CLEAR APP DATA ON ANDROID:

1. Head to the Settings menu. (This can be done by tapping the cog icon in your notification shade.)
2. Find Apps (or Applications, depending on your device) in the menu, then locate the app that you want to clear the cache or data for.
3. Tap on Storage and the buttons for clearing the cache and app data will become available (pictured above).

HOW TO CLEAR APP DATA FOR iOS:

1. Tap Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage.
2. Tap Manage Storage.
3. Tap an item in Documents and Data.
4. Slide unwanted items to the left and tap Delete.
5. Tap Edit > Delete All to remove all the app’s data.

This may help some users get back in the game. Hope this works. We are reading every bug report and working frantically to fix things. Thank you so much for playing and sharing your bug reports.

Hey everyone, Alan, Nathan, PJ and everyone from Con Man are excited to share this big update for your game! A really big one. So listen up, this is what we’ve added to Con Man the Game:

  • You’re own Con Manager’s office! Yes, you now have a office where you can collect and store the rarest of con items – like a bottle of Jack Moore sweat! Why anyone would want that is beyond me, but some people do, so start collecting!
  • More levels! Some of you are so good, and so fast, you’re already at level 30 so get out there and get to level 31, or 32… or 40. More game levels to come as well.
  • We fixed those darn toilets! No more people complaining they can’t find a toilet. What a relief – for them, mostly.
  • That pesky warning sign from Every Play is gone and the camera is fixed so start posting videos of your con. Nathan Fillion wants to see them.
  • A new way to save your Con Man game so you can share across devices and force save to protect your game data.
  • The whole cleaning staff was out there polishing the tables, squashing the bugs and organizing everything so your con will run much smoother. Enjoy!

(Oh, did I mention the new collectibles!!! Quit reading and start playing.)

So let’s talk about Cloud Save and Overwrite. Some players have experienced an issue using this feature when their device craps out, or they try to switch to another device (don’t do that). I have listed some questions below that might help them better understand the work flow so they know which to choose if they happen delete or loose their game.

The most important thing to understand is that we do not save a version of your game on our servers, so if you loose your game, we do not have a copy of it. It’s like when my computer crashes during Photoshop and I want Adobe to give me back the image I’d been working on for hours. Adobe just doesn’t have it. (But I still curse them.)

Con Man the Game cloud-save

Pop-Up screen when re-loading your game.

  • 1. Where is this Cloud Save thing?
    • The game uses the Apple Cloud save and Google Play Cloud save features. Players with a valid Apple ID or a Google Play account have access to this service.
  • 2. What is the difference between Cloud save and Overwrite in the pop-up? It’s confusing.
    • Cloud save is meant to serve as a backup to restore a previous game progression after re-installing the app on a device if the player’s device craps out. It does not allow you to switch to another device. Overwrite is to use when you want to start a game from the beginning. Only choose this if you want to begin again. (Yes, some people want to do that.)
  • 3. Why am I missing game progression if I load a Cloud Save. Where the hell are my Comix?!
    • The game can only save periodically and at some key moments on the cloud. Otherwise, constantly saving on the cloud would create performance issues for the game and ruin the experience. (Like loosing my game doesn’t?!)
  • 4. If I’m missing my game after using cloud save, or if I select Overwrite, is there any way to get it back my stuff, including purchases?
    • If the cloud is not up to date, and local data is lost, there is no way to retrieve the lost game play or currencies. I know that sucks, but blame technology.
  • 5. To hell with technology, I blame you! What are you doing to change this because I don’t like it.
    • In the next update, we’ll add a new game flow that will facilitate playing on multiple devices, and allow you to manually save – especially after a purchase. Aside from the automatic saves, players will be able to upload their local save manually from the option menu to be sure that the cloud save is up to date. It may feel cumbersome, but your stuff will be safer.

This new game flow will reduce some data loss issues as it gives players control as to when they want to “force” a save. In some cases it may allow players to recover lost data, but this is not guaranteed. It will depend on their saving habits. (Remember the Photoshop thingy I mentioned at the start.)

The new save process will remove the overwrite mention and will only refer to the Cloud Save where you can manually save on the Apple or Google Play game servers.
