    SciFly Dogfight was one of my favorite games until the recent update. Now the tilt controls no longer work. I've tried rebooting the phone, but to no avail. Is anyone else having this problem? :confused:

    Have you tried deleting the application and reinstalling it?

    I thought of that but didn't want to do it because I would lose all the progress I made in the game, but after reading your post I realized that this was going to be the only alternative. I did it and now the tilt control is fine. I'm back to one plane and one environment, but at least it's working. Thanks much for your help. :D

    When I looked at the price I really flipped. People are getting a great bargain for .99. The game is also much improved.

    Can you not sync it in itunes to get your planes and environments back?

    And I also got it for .99 but back when it first went on sale.

    Well, I trashed it in itunes, and that was a mistake, but it's become more addictive than ever, so i suppose I'll be back to normal soon.

    Hey everyone,
    I am the lead developer of SciFly.

    I can't apologize enough for all of these problems!

    I'm not 100% sure this fix works, but I've posted a possible temporary fix on Licentia Software's website.
    http://www.licentiasoftware.com/2009/01/08/update-issues/

    And (thanks CADer) as mentioned, the fix has also been posted in the forums which you are all welcome to visit.

    I've only been able to personally test this fix on one device, but several users are reporting that it works.

    I have also already sent an update to Apple which I hope (crossing my fingers) will solve these issues. Apple's update review time can very all the way from 3 days to 2 weeks... so I can only hope it's soon.

    I'll get this darn game fixed eventually, if it's the last thing I do :)



    Thanks for all the interest in SciFly,
    Josh Rosen

    It's a great game, Mr. Rosen, keep up the good work. I'm 78 years old, and I can't get enough of it.

    What do I thin is improved? The opening screens are more attractive. It's easier to unlock a new plane than it was formerly, and, best of all, there are more bandits to fire at. Before, it was more difficult to find the enemy; now they're all over the place.

    1.4 has been released to the App Store, can anyone confirm for me that it has fixed the problems?

    Yes, it seems to be fine now. I had already fixed the problem for myself by raising the sensitivity bar in Settings.

    The only (very small) complaint that i still have is that in the Scores window, the "Skip" function is very difficult to activate. :rolleyes:
