Some users are complaining of connection errors

Over the last few days we’ve been receiving some complaints about the two Xbox LIVE titles from Glu Mobile: Contract Killer and Gun Bros.

Both apps require online-server access in order to play them, which is certainly a lame requirement (e.g. no airplane usage). That’s on top of the numerous bugs that people have opined about with both games since their release.

A non-working, magenta Lumia 900 for Italian Nokia stores

For a few months now we've been teasing the Magenta variant of the Nokia Lumia 900. We first reported that it was scheduled for a Mother's Day release, which would have seen appropriate but alas that never came to be. Since then we've seen the Magenta device show up worldwide a few times including Nokia's own Facebook page but it has yet to be released anywhere.

Now, if you load up NaviFirm Plus and check Nokia's servers, you'll see a Magenta ROM for the Lumia 900 looking pretty. The listed file name is RM-808 VAR ATT MAGENTA (059N3B9) and it corresponds with the same ROM and firmware available for the current cyan, matte black and glossy white versions already available on AT&T.

A snapshot from Navifirm clearly showing a Magenta Lumia 900 ROM for AT&T

While there is no word on availability we're going to take this as a major sign that AT&T is gearing up for its release and it is rather close too.

A few days ago we received notice that the server powering the popular Windows Phone game, Trine's Hangman, crashed due to high traffic. It was one of those good news/bad news things.  Good that traffic for the game was up, bad that it crashed the server.  You could still play the game but all the online goodness wasn't available.

After diligent work by the developer, we have just been informed that things are back up and running. So every should have access to the online ranking, leaderboards, definitions and score updates.

Trine's Hangman comes in two versions. You have Trine's Hangman with is a free, ad-supported version and Trine's Hangman Pro that runs $1.99 and is ad free.

Trine's Hangman Pro is currently on a half-off sale ($.99) through January 1st. In light of the events with the server, this sale has been extended to January 8th. So if you've been thinking of upgrading to the ad free version or tinkering with the free trial, you still have time to take advantage of the savings.

wp7geek, over at myWindowsPhone, has gone into some detail about how he couldn't access SharePoint via the Office Hub, but could successfully connect in the IE mobile browser. Upon attempting to connect from the Office Hub, the following error message was displayed: 

Sharepoint doesn't support this authentication scheme. For assistance contact the person who manages this SharePoint site. You can try opening the content in your web browser instead. 

wp7geek moved onto explain the cause of this error, which is apparently due to WP7 not supporting NTLM authentication that is used to login on hosted SharePoint servers. While a workaround is possible until Office Hub is updated, it requires changes on the server side of the connection, which involves contacting your host. They would need to either:

  • Deploy a Forefront UAG server (UAG settings are built into Office hub)
  • Enable Forms Based Authentication on the SharePoint Site

Forms Based Authentication (FBA) is basically creating your own login method. To authenticate, a SQL Server, XML, Windows Live IDs, etc can be used. Existing Windows Identities must be migrated to FBA identities to avoid multiple SharePoint identities for a single person. This makes it problematic for hosting companies who may have huge internal SharePoint deployments which reply on windows authentication.

Should you not have the above authentication implemented then you should be able to access the server through Office Hub, but unfortunately if they're not present then you're stuck with IE on your phone for SharePoint. 

Have you experienced problems with this issue?

By now you might or might not have heard of OTOY, which in a nutshell, is server-side gaming. All you need is a computer, with an Internet connection. OTOY does all the heaving lifting with processing power; you worry about the gaming.

And lo and behold, the thing works on a mobile phone. Above, you see it in action on the Windows Mobile-based Samsung Omnia. Whether you actually want to play a first-person shooter on a 3- to 4-inch screen is a whole 'nother matter, but the premise definitely is cool. Check it out.
