If I Experience Lag…
If you notice a high ping, you may have an unstable internet connection. First, try playing on 3G. If you have no further issues, but do with WiFi, try another internet connection. Some other issues that might be contributing to the problem are:
- Email pushes enabled
- Other applications that require network access
- Other applications running simultaneously
- Poor network connection
- Incorrectly configured router
If I Have Trouble Installing or Updating the Game on My Android…
There may be an issue with your Market app or installation to your SD Card. Try the following:
- Uninstall Pocket Legends
- Unmount your SD Card
- Clear your Marketplace cache and data in your applications manager
- Install Pocket Legends
- Remount the SD Card
- Then move Pocket Legends back to the SD Card (if you want)
Some devices fail to install large apps directly to SD Card.
Find the .android_secure directory on the sdcard and remove the ‘smdl2tmp1.asec’ file. You can either do this by mounting the sdcard on a computer, or with a file manager app.
