By "iOS6" do you mean a 4" screen update? That's iffy...

Right now I have iOS 6 bug fix updates planned for Match Panic and Silverfish MAX (to fix an iPad UI bug that doesn't affect gameplay). Match Panic will likely get a 4" screen update at that point because it's relatively easy to extend the background and activation rects without affecting the gameplay. Unfortunately Silverfish is locked to the aspect ratio, so there's no easy way to stretch it without giving players on a 4" screen a big advantage. This is the same reason I released a separate iPad version rather than making it universal - but releasing a new 4" only version would be silly, and separate leaderboards would be a PITA - so, iffy

Well that doesn't sound good Is this from the on-device App Store or syncing from iTunes? Does it give you an error of any sort?

I've tried all my apps on all my iOS 6 devices (3rd gen iPad, 4th gen iPod) and they all work apart from those minor iPad issues mentioned previously. I also tried trashing Silverfish and re-downloading it from the device's App Store and it installed and ran fine.

Sync it from iTunes or straight from the iPhone AppStore, both methods give me the same: "Couldnt install Silverfish". It happens with Waking Mars too

There was some craziness with the App Store the past couple days - apparently there are new terms you need to agree to, but some people were having trouble completing that.

I'd try logging out in iTunes and on the device, then restarting everything and logging back in. Other than that I'm not sure there's anything I can update on my end to help your situation - sounds like an App Store/Apple problem :/

Good to hear a problem wasn't my fault for once

I've been working on stuff on-and-off all year but all I have at the moment is 3 half finished games and another half dozen prototypes. This tweet full of pics pretty much sums it up: https://twitter.com/ChaoticBox/statu...24128820527104

I'd like to finish at least 2 of the ones that are further along just for the sake of finishing them, but the App Store is more a frustration than a motivation these days.

I know I said 4" screen support was "iffy" a few posts up, but an update just hit the App Store with 4" screen support

I've kept the game play aspect the same to keep leaderboards fair, but fill the bigger screen by zooming in & panning up/down as you move.

This update also has a couple more iCade presets you can choose in the settings screen by hitting up/down on your controller.

Well done :-)

Game Center: masvil - feel free to add me telling you are from TA.
Do you need info about HDMI out and iCade to use your iDevice as a real game station? Go there and there and thank Connector and Menneisyys.
