Yeah I dunno, sometimes I'll have a harder time with a certain puzzle so I'll completely misjudge the difficulty level, but you're right, that's definitely not a 25 star puzzle.

The achievements should get stored in Game Center, but it's one-way, Trainyard sends achievements to game center but doesn't pull them back down. Right now there is no iCloud syncing of progress either because Apple has made it a huge pain to implement, so it's unlikely that will ever happen.... at least not until Trainyard 2 (which is not coming soon, at all).

Thanks for the reply.

FWIW, Letterpress uses Game Center to sync progress between devices, but I have no idea whether the same could work for Trainyard - there's a lot more to Trainyard than Letterpress.

Yeah that's the issue, unfortunately trainyard's save data is incredibly complex: it's not just storing whether you've solved a puzzle, but it's also storing all of your solutions for each puzzle.

When I view a solution using my iPod touch, there is a static image with a caption saying that animation can be seen in a Flash-enabled browser. But when I view the same page using Windows (IE or Safari, with Flash and Java enabled and updated), there is *no* image, static or animated. Any clues as to why?
I also tried sharing a solution on Facebook, but received an error message -- something about August. (huh?) Is that feature still supposed to work?
I'm still playing Express. Very impressive game and features!

Hmm, you should be seeing the solution player when you view it on your computer. Safari on Windows is really old now, isn't it?

Yeah Facebook changed their API so now that sharing stuff doesn't work, I'll be fixing that in the next update, sorry!

I *should* see a player, but I don't. :^(
I tried again (and again ...) using different solution pages, old and new.
Flash and Java work for me on other pages, but not trainyard.ca
Does it still work (or not) for anyone else?

I don't know how "old" Safari is. I just downloaded it earlier this year to see if it could handle something (I forget what) differently than IE.

Hmm, that's strange, it's working for me in IE.

I highly recommend checking out Google Chrome as a browser if you haven't already, it's super fast and it works great with the Trainyard site: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/

Thanks for your answer and recommendation. At least now I know the problem is something on my end.

I'll probably try Chrome, but I suspect it may be a Windows configuration issue since it failed in two different browsers.

Will let you know if I find a solution. *fingers crossed*

It works in Chrome!!! Yay! And cool!

(Now the nerd in me wants to know why IE failed. )

Thanks again, Matt (and DannyTheElite).
