Issue with Star Hogs Multiplayer

It seems that everytime I try to play a match against someone my connection drops and then I get disconnected. I've tried deleting then reinstalling (same thing happens) What I find weird is my first gen ipod touch works online but my 2nd gen won't. Has anybody experienced this issue or is it just me? And what should I do or try?

Oh Also I'm sorry if this is the wrong category Feel free to move it where it belongs. I'm just stumped

So it works on your 1st gen ipod but not your 2nd gen ipod?

That indeed sounds weird. Are you playing using the same Wifi router? If i were you, i would try playing other realtime online games like dinosmash with the 2nd gen ipod just to make sure it isn't the hardware. I use an iphone 3G, play this a lot on 3G and haven't have a disconnection at all.

Any bugs or problems post it in Tech Support at http://cloud.iugome.com/forums/
(IUGO tech support usually answers same day, if not sooner)

i had almost the same issue the other day an tracked it back to my own wifi...

Also check that your area has a stable signal and you could also disablethe check mail every 15 minites option (put manual) like i do when playing online

i'm just happening to be reading threads here

Well, you should bring it up with the dev. From what i experienced and what everyone else who played it, starhogs' online multiplayer is just impeccable. There's an iugo rep somewhere here, do a search, there should be a link or url in his sig IIRC. I don't remember their url, there should be a place for you to post feedback to them. Anyone knows how?

EDIT: chaos, you are fast aren't you.

Nope they both have OS 3.0 I wrote iugo tech support so hopefully they can help me out. If not then i'll just have to play on my 1st gen. I just find it weird that my 2nd gen is having these issues Lol
