Slim. Just playing on a PC and I’ve noticed that the level numbers on some episodes are out of sync. For example Bad Piggies 20-8 on here is actually 21-8 everywhere else. Is it just me? If not it could lead to scores being entered wrongly.

i’ve come around to replaying some ‘old’ short fuse levels today, in particular 27-4, 27-6 and 27-10, and each of these seems to have significantly more points in it now (v4.1.0) than originally. in particular, 27-4: 2k up in my first attempt; 6k up within 50 attempts; 27-6: 1k up in one of first attempts; 5k up with some effort, but still 100k+ after the 1st used to be rare whereas now 103k+ is frequent; 27-10: 2k up in first attempt; 10k up with some effort but more in it. what gives? does this hold for all levels? of 26? of 27? of …?

Profile photo of Dr O'NeskiRank: Master Slinger with 7115 points

Agreed. I think it’s a little ingenuous of Rovio to keep doing this sort of thing. It’s difficult enough getting high scores without them randomly making it easier for others to just surpass those with ease. In the opposite direction, as it where, also making it impossible on other levels to compete. This does need sorting out. Perhaps a hint or two when they issue a new version would help. I’m not a mind reader so I have no idea which levels have been made easier or harder.

@vuelva, thanks for posting your observation. Wow, I increased my score on 27-4 by 4k on just two attempts. It was so strange because usually, I struggle to come close to my previous high. Very gracious of you to share the good news. Jim

Ditto on 27-6, I am able now to replica the @ernor63 reset, and combined with the approach to eliminate the pipe with yellow. Up 7k, and without much effort. Just takes a while to stop/start AB cold each time. Not sure if there is a way that does not require AB to be killed and restarted, none worked before.
After the last update, I thought 27-15 was a bit simpler to go up higher, as in a few retries, I had gone up close to 20k. Still not close to the current high, but beating my previous high.

Well here we are with April almost gone and no new levels. I feel especially sorry for the Mac and PC users (I use these platforms as well but not exclusively) who have been short-changed and not received full updates on Short Fuse as yet. Very frustrating. On which subject I have just enjoyed a liberated half hour by playing without wifi switched on. Brilliant. No ads. That’s the best part but also no worries about touching the screen in the wrong place and be whisked over to the App Store. The “App Store” eh. Even when it’s typed in lower case it bigs itself up! A bit anti Apple today after handling a beautiful Galaxy S5.

Hi, can someone help – I don’t see anywhere to put my score for Poached Eggs, Facebook edition, level 49. There is no “1-” or “2-” in front of the number. If I go to the “AB Friends” section it doesn’t list Poached Eggs at all. It took me forever to get three stars and eventually got it with two birds, and I wanted to compare results.

Hi Slim

Sorry to be a pain. I’ve again flagged 4-11, because I just don’t get it. Two scores are very significantly higher than the rest. There doesn’t seem to be any “hidden” bonus scores in the level, so even assuming a zero bird total collapse couldn’t provide the over 160k. Or could it? There are two players who have such scores. Perhaps they could elaborate and put me out of my “misery”!

What happened to my scores.I left my nephew in-charge of my computer for one week and this happens

He told me that you had asked him how he had got them scores. He answered how he had got them, but not how I had got them. I had sent them on face-book for your records. That what I thought I had done.
I didn’t have time to write them down on how I had got them. But it took me Plenty of tries too get them.

If the rest of us who aren’t using Google Chrome don’t get the extra 15,0000 points for ball bearings leaving the enclosure, shouldn’t those scores be treated like the ones from Facebook and not be allowed on the leaderboard? I’ve been shooting at this level for days before finally coming up with the perfect shot, leaving just two or three pieces of scrap laying around for a score of 159,760. Level the playing field!

By to mock a mockingbird (@vuelva)

@uncadick you mean for level 8-15 and 50,000 points? the situation is suboptimal indeed, but not exceptional: i guess there’s a few 100k in it anyway, in total score, between playing the ‘worst’ and ‘best’ versions of all abo levels (on any platform, in any version). levelling (forbidding to enter) just because of this one level would imply unepisoding/untotalling (unlevelling the episode/total score playing field) so would seem a bit harsh on chrome players?

I’m pretty sure level 8-15 is the only level with this quirk. And it is 15k per ball-bearing, not 50k. I agree that it’s unfair and ridiculous, but I’ve also enjoyed playing the level in Chrome and figuring out how to eject multiple ball-bearings.

Just curious about a few things. I’m currently still on iOS 6.1.3. I never upgraded it to the latest iOS and AB keeps running an updating just fine, so far. I was just not fond of the new User Interface look, so I just never updated. Obviously, I have a lot of outdated apps at this point, and my iPad nags me regularly to be updated. I use it only for AB at this point, so I just never seen the need for it. But I’m curious though if any changes have been seen in auto-destruct levels, or other levels based on iOS version.

I also have a question for @amslimfordy and/or @birdleader. It appears DiskAid now has changed to iMazing, and I’m not sure how well this will work after the 14-day trial period compared to DiskAid. I have always figured I should back-up my scores somewhere, but mostly just made sure I kept back-ups made through iTunes. I figured I would give it a try however, and noticed the name change and trial period. How will this impact your back-up instructions, and does this mean that after 14 days you have to pay to use the software properly?

Hi @pointdexter5 – I just happen to see your post and thought I would share with you some info.

I am using a first generation iPad which I have version iOS 5.1.1 with no available update. Way more out of date then yours, lol ;-) Obviously my iPad doesn’t allow for some games and Apps that require higher versions…such as the new Stella. I also only use mine for playing AB. I’m not sure about the “game play” question you asked about the auto-destruct and such….

But I can help you with your backing-up question ;-) I use iExplorer which is free and pretty much the same instructions for DiskAid which I believe is noted as such in the site’s instructions. I downloaded it a long time ago, maybe a year or so and I also use iTunes. but the thing is that even now when I open iExplorer to do a back-up…upon opening it, it has their logo to the left and in a box in the middle of the screen there is a smaller box on the left that says “Buy Now” and another on the right that says “Enter Registration Code” Under these options it says “Continue in Demo Mode”. This is the one I click on and have been doing so from the beginning so I guess the “Demo Mode” is perfect for me because I only use it to back up my AB games. Even though you can do so much more with it and I guess if I was interested in backing up contact and messages and everything, I would consider actually buying it. The Demo Mode is perfectly fine for what we need it for. I’m pretty sure you only want it for the same thing. I regularly use it to back up all my games before and after an update or a “great” score.

I wonder if the new DiskAid is the same and will let you continuously have a free type demo mode after the 14 days…If not then please take a look at iExplorer. It’s very easy to use, especially after you do it once. If you need more help about it just send me a PM.

I have an iphone 4 on 7, an ipad 3 on ios 6 both of which are jailbroken and an iphone 5 on ios 8. I’ve not noticed any difference in the game play. As for backing-up I usually just let itunes or rovios own sync system (it’s improved) do it. If I needed to go further, on the jailbroken ones, I had been using Cyberduck (Mac) or WinScp (Win) to access files but these progs are no use on ios8 so for that I started to use iFunbox. I was surprised but it actually gives full access to my jailbroken devices too so Cyberduck etc may be redundant in my world now! Jailed devices have limited access of course but the prog is free, easy to use and intutive for the less savvy. I think it will do the trick no worries. I downloaded from
http://www.i-funbox.com but there are lots of sites to get it from.

Good info. May just leave it on iOS 6 in the end. I just don’t care for the look and feel of anything after 7. Played with some newer ipads of family members, and was just not impressed. But since I use it solely for AB, as long as I can keep updating it for new levels, it’s no big deal.
Will check into these programs, as imazing had issues reading the camera library, so would be nice to find something that can drag and drop to explorer, and get to all files on the ipad.

Yes it does all of that. I always thought it was a bit of lightweight prog for amateurs but I am wrong. FYI, I just looked, my iPad is actually on 7 not 6. Can’t go any further because I will lose my Jailbreak. Thinking about it you may have something to keep hold of here. Lately I have been trying to beat my scores on Flock Favorites. Did this level come out before ios 7? If it did, it could explain why I have failed miserably to get near nearly all of them. And I mean nowhere near! I look at my scores and wonder?

On the downloads page for “iMazing”, there is still a direct link to DiskAid. I’ve played around a little bit with iMazing and DONT think it’s any better than DiskAid. I’ll see about either getting direct links or what to update our guide. I really appreciate “y’all’s’s” input — I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.
