iOS4 Information for Eliminate/Touch Pets Dogs

  • Announcement
  • Updated 4 years ago
Hey Eliminate Employees and Touch Pets Dogs Owners,

Here at ngmoco:) we’re working on a lot of exciting games for your iPhones, iPods and iPads. As you may know, today iOS4 will be released by Apple. Right out the gate, if you choose to update your iDevice, you may find your playing experience to run into problems in certain peripheral areas of the game.

We are in the process of updating our entire catalog of Apps to be iOS4 compatible. Apple has made a significant number of changes in how memory is managed and how Apps can communicate with our network. Eliminate and Touch Pets Dogs are special cases that require significant additional work and we want to ensure our compatibility fixes are done right the first time.

We want to advise Eliminate and Touch Pets Dogs players that should they choose to upgrade to iOS4, they may likely encounter some issues.

Your support is much appreciated, and we will be bringing iOS4 compatibility to Eliminate and Touch Pets Dogs as soon as possible.

My guess would be random crashes or the games not starting up at all. All items and info are stored server side so there is no possibility of losing them.

Yeah, we definitely aren't gonna lose any stuff, there will probably just be a whole buncha bugs and glitches, lose of connection, game crashes, and all that other fun stuff... Where would we be without all of those things? It makes it more fun, as well as wastes more of the time in our lives. I'm gonna upgrade right now, and then see what will happen. I'll let you guys know... Actually, does anyone know if it's only for iPhone?

oh yeah, i forgot i said id tell you how things went with ios4...
i have itouch gen3 with the new software, and it still works fine, except for when you try and play music while playing eliminate... then it crashes and gets all glitchy... and multitasking obviously doesnt work, and i cant think of anything that they could do to make multitasking work, since it is LIVE deathmatches... although they could do something for when you play offline... we will find out whenever the new version of eliminate comes out.

it also seems that all the new adjustments to the ipod software itself to make the thing faster and stuff seem to improve my eliminate gameplay, and make it look better than ever... its not as glitchy or slow anymore

I wanna upgrade because of that awesome multi-tasking way better than backgrounder.

But I don't want to lose my jailbreak.

So I have to wait for an ios4 jailbreak.

Retina screen just expand the resolution and makes the screen more clearer.

eliminate on iphone 4 would be sick as i know personally how fast it is and beautiful the screen is

Wait holding the sleep and home button does what, does it like put your iPod to DFU mode or does it like shut it down?

Screen Capture.

If you mean for 10 seconds it's Hard Reboot.

P. S. I wrote this on my newly downloaded iOS 4 iDevice!!

FYI: It doesn't matter. There's no such thing as 3rd Gen iPod Touches. It's the same device as "2nd gen" the only difference is yours came with 3.0 software.

Thanks a lot i didnt know wat was wrong but now i do!!!

Also, i think that you should give out a credit bonus to everyone because some of us cant play since we go the software update.... My skill went down because eliminate kept quitting so now I'm 5700 instead of 6000. This is why i think you should give us the bonus credits....
Hope u agree :)

Ok Joe, the problem isn't us updating to 4.0, it's NGMOCO/Apple not being on top of their stuff. Get on your job..
