Angry Birds Star Wars Cloud City Now Available!

As many expected, the Cloud City update to Angry Birds Star Wars (v1.2.0) has landed on the Thursday during GDC! Who knows, maybe BirdLeader can give the Mighty Eagle a wink and a nod to say “I know it!”

Anyways, back to business. We reported last week that the update was coming soon, and indeed it has! I think the Rebel Birds were looking to relax after their escape from Hoth, but obviously their plans never quite work as expected. The update has landed for iOS, PC, Mac, and Android via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, with more platforms coming soon.

Attention PC users: There seems to be a minor bug in this update. We can’t pin down exactly what causes the issue, but there seems to be issues if you have 3-starred the vast majority of levels. Per Rovio Support: “Our wonderful QA team has now been able to find the bug in the game and we are now working on a fix to get it resolved. Hopefully we get it released soon!”

This update includes:

  • 20 levels of Cloud City, based in Bespin with 20 more coming in a future update. The levels are pretty cool and a bit challenging, but that’s fine in my book! Walkthroughs are live and can be found in the Cloud City walkthrough category.
  • 2 new Bonus levels! The 9th Star Bonus level unlocks at 555 stars, and the 8th Droid is the one you seek in Bespin! We won’t say here where to find the Droid you are looking for, but our guide may say it.
  • Boba Fett Missions! (iOS/Android only): This episode consists of 10 levels, all pretty challenging, and all containing the bounty hunter Boba Fett (obviously). To unlock the episode, you can either spring for the $0.99 USD IAP or you can find all 5 jetpacks, scattered across the galaxy. Now, please DO NOT post the locations here. We do have walkthroughs for each level and also show you how to find each jet pack.
  • New steam element, which works similar to the geysers in Red Planet of Angry Birds Space.
  • 1 new iOS achievement, related to the Boba Fett Missions.
  • 2 new Characters to be unlocked, plus one more coming soon! You can now send tweets about your “trophy” (i.e., your unlocking of a character) directly from the page by clicking on it! (Rovio, it seems, plans to add a toggle feature here, to avoid youngsters tweeting on their parents’ behalf.)

Rovio just released a new video to do with Boba Fett Missions, and it said you can unlock it using a promotional code. Anyone know what it means?

Promotional Codes can be found on marked Angry Birds Star Wars retail items, such as plushies and clothing. Each unique code will unlock certain things in-game, such as Mighty Falcon usages or, apparently, the Boba Fett Missions if not already unlocked.

Oh. THEM codes. I thought they’d give it away on Twitter or something.

It would be helpful if a list of codes was posted on ABN.

@davthebombbird once code is entered (used) it can’t be used on other device. It is pointless to list codes here. You may ask somone of your freinds to give you code he/she wouldn’t use.

As Cosmo said, codes are single-use only.

Cloud City is one of my favorites. There were some really clever episodes that were fun to watch and some episodes with multiple ways to “win”. Truly fun.

I just realized something! Look at the picture of lando bird in a cutscene. Now look at the page that shows all the birds, their upgrades, ect. You’ll see an outline of something with a ? Over it. See the similarity?
This evidence leads me to believe that Han solo bird will be replaced with a Lando callrisien bird, possibly with the same abbility as Han.

Sounds like you deleted your highscores file. This is likely not fixable.

I just Played It Last Night With Complete Levels And 3 star scores,and the next day, it lost, but thanks anyway :) I just like Playing ABSW even It Lost :)

P.S.
It showed Lard Vader laughing with the hooded pigs

Interesting @crivit. I can 1-star it just fine… (Haven’t tried enough to 3-star it today).

@crivit Update: Just managed 113,580 = 3stars. Seems to save just fine.

By John

I get same error on ABSW level 20, it can’t save score more than 108K, strange? hope they issue new update for ANSW to solve the problem on PC.

@amslimfordy I still get the same error, on the last level of Boba Fett as well. Seems to crash when completing 3-starring all the levels of one episode, I suppose you don’t have all stars on PC version yet?

Rank: Sling God with 27105 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Not all stars, but completed all levels. I’ve obtained data files from another user and will forward them to Rovio.

I got the exact same error on PC Cloud City level 20 (sorry for posting duplicate copies of this information on two forums).

By Bill

I just installed this module on my PC (Windows 8). I’ve completed all the levels, including getting a score of 107000 on level 20. When I play the level again, and get a higher score, I get an error message that says ?:0: attempt to concatenate a nil value (call stack not available). I’ve rebooted the machine several times, run the game with and without any other programs running, but still get this error on level 20. I do not get this error on any other levels. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Me too. At least there is the small comfort, by the number of reports, that it is a genuine bug and not something on one’s PC clashing etc

Same thing on PC here. Scored 119,000+ on level 20 and got the error message and then window crashed and burned. Have 3*ed all levels but this one. Will try to score lower….how ironic is THAT?…and at least finish this one for now.

Me too – 119590 and it went catatonic and crashed. I can’t install the latest Seasons update, either. Windows 7 on PC.

DeanyZ1 Have you read our post about the PC Seasons update? Should help you: it’s here.

By Bill

Thank you @amslimfordy. On a related note, I now notice that the light saber is not working on any of the levels. I wonder is others have noticed this as well and if its related to the bug?

Rank: Sling God with 27105 points

No reports that I’ve heard, and I haven’t had any issues on my end.

Avatar of DG47Rank: Fling King with 4950 points

Have since completed/3* the Boba Fett missions as well- bug reared its head and caused crashed on last screen-B10- of course-but no problems with the light saber throughout-or anything else.

By Bret

I ran into the lightsaber issue after unsuccessfully trying some other fixes (d/l newest demo version and choose ‘Repair’, deleting settings.lua). I went back and did Tatooine 1-8, after which Luke gets the lightsaber powerup. Lightsaber worked fine after that.

By Faith

Im having the same problem when getting the last star, but because i saved level 15 for last thats the level it happens on, when i get a score high enough to get the last of all the stars the 60th star (for me that is the 3rd star on level 15) my game freezes and I get the exact same attempt to concatenate a nil value error.

By Sam W

I’m getting the same error… very frustrating, I tried a reinstall of the game and that didn’t help… guess we’ll have to wait for the bug fix :(

By Ace

Getting same error on ABSW when I get enough points for final 3rd star on level 15. Made it crash four times. Cannot complete all the levels.

Received an e-mail from Rovio having reported the “concatenate a nil value” bug-essential bit is:
‘We have now received some feedback on this issue and we are currently investigating it. We apologize greatly for not being able to give you an answer or instructions right away, as this is something that needs deeper investigation.’
So it could be a little time before it gets fixed.

By Bill

I got this reply this morning:

Hey Bill,

Thanks for getting back to us!

Our wonderful QA team has now been able to find the bug in the game and we are now working on a fix to get it resolved. Hopefully we get it released soon!

Thanks for your patience and assistance with this.

Star Wars ERROR – …cannot concatenate nil..
this is blocking me from enjoying the game. Do I have to download a fix somewhere. I never had a broken game from RIO before, and don’t know where to go for a remedy to this annoying problem.
Thanks in advance for your attention and resolution to this sticky bit, as I would really like to continue this game.

Hi Zeke, if you download latest version of Angry Birds Star Wars, this issue has been fixed.

By Zeke

That bug has been obliterated!
Thanks, so much, for your swift correction to that nasty concat to nil!
You folks ROCK!
