What happened:

To fix the slow battle message bug, I upgraded to a different engine version since the one I used to fix the crash caused the message bug. Unfortunately, that same engine version also re-introduced the crashes.

I'm in the process of testing a workaround right now. I know I sound like a broken record with all the apologies, but I am truly sorry for how annoying this must be.

Needless to say, Siralim 2 will be made with a different engine.

Hey, I'm getting crashes again today.
I started getting them occasionally when I moved from realm to realm or made a portal. Now when I start a battle, it sometimes crashes too.
Because it worked perfectly last night I've reset my phone, uninstalled and reinstalled... But no improvement.

Thanks so much on that quick fix Zach!

I have played for about an hour tonight and I haven't experienced any crashes! I'll keep you updated as I get some more time under my belt.

Again, thanks so much for all the work on this.

I'll have a hotfix out for that ASAP. Thanks for letting me know!

Edit: Found it, fixed it, and uploaded it.

Thanks zack,
No more force closes for me, however, the battles slow right down now in the last two or so turns. Each message taking up to 10 or so seconds to move on. Once the battle is over, everything zooms on again until the last turn or so of the next battle.
I've tried turning off power saving, but no effect.
No crashes though, so thanks for the hard work recently!

Uploading a fix now for all platforms. I'm pretty confident in this one. I'm also going to write something up about how and why this happened, since it has understandably been a frustrating experience for a lot of people.

I just want to say that you're doing an awesome job. You're always good about staying on top of bugs and getting fixes out ASAP, so no worries.

Hey just wanted to check back and say I am still having crashes on a new game with the 1.0.5 Windows version. Just started a new character and third battle in the realm with the breakable orbs it crashed with a hard crash. The enemy I ran into was an iron golem. Also after that I rushed through a realm avoiding what battles I could and I had a crash when I tried to move to a lower level. I'd like to provide more information to help but I'm not sure what other information I can give that would assist you. Also is there a way to download previous versions of Siralim, I'd like to play on ver. 1.0.4 because it's more stable and the current version is a kind of unplayable for me.

Just wanted to back up what Bewi said. I was able to get through a whole dungeon without a crash but it ended up crashing while trying to save & exit.

Thanks a lot for your effort Zach. I'm in software as well so I've been there...don't work yourself to the bone over this!

Still working hard, for whatever that's worth.

The good news is that I've fixed probably a dozen bugs and optimized a ton of things during this process. The bad news is that none of this has helped to fix the crash yet.

I've gone through a full realm with Android version 1.0.30 and no crash at all. But I've had a crash after saving and exiting and selecting continue on the main screen.

I can only affirm that I have far less crashes than before.
