Crackdown: Project Sunburst version 1.2 changelog

Last week we covered a flurry of updates for Xbox Live titles, including The Harvest, ilomilo, and iBlast Moki. We had some trouble digging up release notes for Crackdown: Project Sunburst’s version 1.2 update though. At last, the contents of the update have been revealed.

Crackdown: Project Sunburst v1.2.0.0 changelog:

  • Overall connectivity is more stable and reliable.
  • Fixed an issue where players who moved phones were not able to play the game.
  • Fixed bugs related to Friends’ bases not scrolling or displaying properly.
  • Improvements to the My Bases screen to make it more clear what things do.
  • More consistent integration of player’s overall GPS settings.
  • Added a FAQ link in Help and Options that links to the Facebook page.
  • Numerous other small fixes.

Sounds good, right? Brace yourself… We’ve heard rumblings at the game’s Facebook page and other places that this update is causing some users to lose their save files, destroying hours of work. The Slumber Party Achievement has also become unattainable for some people, presumably forcing them to sleep by themselves, which is never fun. Project Sunburst is an innovative game, but it’s disheartening to see that after several months of release it still doesn’t work quite right.

Don’t let me scare you away from trying it out, though. Crackdown: Project Sunburst is a unique tower defense game that integrates with Bing maps to allow players to defend real world locations. Our review found the gameplay quite addictive. Buy it for $2.99 or try the demo here (opens a link to your Zune software) on the Marketplace.

Thanks to Kathy Richardson at Microsoft for the release notes.

I can comment you do lose your work. Have to start from scratch now, but it doesn't have that 999,999,999 dollar bug.

cannon#WP says:

I loaded mine up last week and my game was still there. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

cdook says:

I haven't been able to join friends bases since I bought the game. I really hope they fix that because I can't get the PJ Party achievement.

theefman says:

I updated when the patch was first release and all my bases were gone. Uninstalled it as I wasnt interested in redoing hours of game time. Just another typical WP7 mess up.

mparker says:

Fortunately I didn't lose my stats. One of the "minor bug fixes" apparently fixed the bug that prevented me from scrolling the base list (which had rendered it essentially unplayable). Unfortunately they added a bug where it crashes whenever there's lots of action (i.e. typical high-level base), so it's still essentially unplayable.

I can confirm that it does indeed lose your save game. now it doesn't even want to connect to live, e.g. leaderboard.
