Just curious, when I look at my GC scores, they are almost 7 mil higher compared to my scores here, and the difference does not match up with my Golden Eggs scores. My episode scores all match, so GC is counting something we are not counting here. I seem to remember this explained in the past but I can’t remember.
I also was gone from these message boards for a while due to remodeling work. I know Slim was getting married, just have not seem him as active in these messages. Is he still part of the admin team?

Just checking again if this is still actively monitored. Not sure where to best post this question otherwise.

@pointdexter5 Slim is still an admin, he is not around as much due to a very busy schedule.
GC is notoriously buggy and inaccurate. The only level that we left out, as far as I can tell, is the special “Red Golden Egg”. So your leaderboard totals here are probably the most accurate.

@sal9 thanks for the reply. I know in the past the GC was used to check for possible fraud, but my GC scores are almost 7 mil higher compared to here, yet all episode scores in GC match up as far as total score per episode reported in the game, and here on abN. I am not sure where they get the extra 7 mil from.

I don’t think it’s the Golden Eggs or this specific one. That one is only 3.6 mil at max and the difference is 7 mil, and 7 mil more. We don’t count Golden Eggs here as part of the leaderboards, but my GE total does not match up to the difference. I seem to remember this being discussed in the past but can’t remember the specifics.

Maybe it’s the total GE scores after all. i verified all my GE scores and they match between GC and aBN. when I subtract my ABN score from the GC score, the difference is the 7 mil I was talking about and my GE score is within 4 points of that score. Can’t find those 4 missing points anywhere, but all my scores match for every GE where points are to be gained.

I’m going to be buying a new iPad. Is there a foolproof way to transfer AB so I don’t lose my scores?

@whoosher I would suggest doing it manually. You can find the tutorial on transfering files between iOS devices HERE. It looks technical and daunting, but believe me, once you get the hang of it, it is an amazing way to keep your progress safe with manual back ups. Let me know if you have any questions (here or in the PMs)

Thank you @e-star. I’m going to ask my wife to look into this as shenisnthe guru.

I like being at the top of the leaderboard even if it’s only for a while.

Is anyone else unable to access the new levels?

Hi Jim. I’m also in IOS. No trouble downloading the new levels in the UK. App Store and Update works very well. Good luck.

Forgive me if I’m telling my grandma to suck eggs. Have you been to the App Store. I apologise if I’ve got the wrong end of the chicken!

Thanks for the reply. No updates are at my App Store. I think my operating system is too old.

Ah Jim. I did read that earlier ios software updates were not supported. You’ll be glad to get a new ipad!

By the way. If you sign up with Rovio on the web your scores will be cross referenced on all platforms. No need for copying.

I’m still running an old version of the OS as well. Do you know what version of ios you are running?

My IPad says IOS5.1.1.
I hope I’ve successfully joined Rovio and hope to get a ne IPad today.

I guess I’m 6.1.3

Too bad though if it were not to work in any dated version. I just hope I can use mine as long as possible since I used it for ABO only. Device is dedicated AB machine.

5.1.1 sounds like the Original iPad OS. Yup, I’d say its time to upgrade.

Thanks to all.
My ne iPad is up and running with my scores and the new levels.
Since I’m 88, it will probably last longer than me.

My ABO Flock Favorites has crashed on 29-16 several times. Anyone else having problems? This is a newer iPad, latest iOS. While playing the screen goes mostly black then freezes. After a restart it works again but top score on that screen is back to zero, so then I have to work back up.
