          1. Do not understand totally your remark. Did your successful compile the example? What were the results. Did the Wii LAN device work?

  1. The online high score still crashes for me. I can see the release notes fine but the high scores still crash just like all of the other versions 🙁

    1. Hi Tim, sorry for that. 😕 I can not find any bug so far. The game is working for 95% of the users. CashMan send me some interested comments what could possible be wrong. I have adapted the code a little bit. But now we know for sure that this is not solving the problem. Can you maybe provide me with more information about your locale situation. Do you use a Wii PAL version, Wifi or ethernet LAN connection, Is the network thread status idle before you enter the highscore screens, Is the local highscore screen working?. Can you try RedSquare. Is this game also crashing in the Local or Global highscore area. Looking forward to more details about the problem?

    1. Hi CashMan, This evening i have test SpaceBubble v0.80 with all kind of TV Mode: 50Hz / 60Hz, Wide screen / Normal Screen, etc.. In every TV mode it is working fine on my site. I am completely lost what could be wrong. Can you please check if the RedSquare highscore area is working fine. This other game is using 90% the same source code. So i am wondering if this game is also crashing in the same area. Looking forward to your reaction. 😉

  2. I’m using a USA wii and both of RedSquare’s highscores work and never crash. When I start SpaceBubble and check the highs scores it says that they couldn’t be fetched. Then I look at the release notes and then try again to look at the highscores screen it crashes an gives me a code dump 🙁

    1. Hi Tim,

      Two small questions:
      1. Were did the game crashed. On the first (local) or second (global) highscore screen?
      2. What was the network thread status before your entering the highscore area? See left lower part of menu screen. Was it Idle or something else.

  3. Hi everybody, I found the major bug in the global highscore screen with course the game to crash. With the new release v0.81 this issue is solved. Sorry that it took so long, to solve it! It was really a nasty bug. Hard to find. I would like to thanks all players with provided me with crash reports. This helped a lot to find the issue!

  4. A wonderful article…. In my life, I have never seen a man be so selfless in helping others around him to get along and get working. I feel good that there are people like you too. Thanks for this great weblog of yours. Its surely going to get me to go to higher places!
