Angry Birds v1.6.3 Now Available for Mac and PC!

After a little delay, the wait is over for Mac and PC users! The latest Angry Birds update (v1.6.3) is out now and includes the last chapter of Mine and Dine. This should also mean you now have access to all 26 Golden Eggs! This update comes about a month after the latest iOS and Android update, so check out that post if you want to know the nitty-gritty about v1.6.3.

Note for PC users, this update is available for those who purchased the standalone version via download.angrybirds.com. Unfortunately, we have no word on when the update might come to Intel AppUp. AppUp has received their update as well.

A few tips regarding upgrading the standalone version:

  1. The in-game updated only checks for updates periodically (though some users have reported problems), so if you’re not getting prompted for an update and are in a hurry you can download a new installer from download.angrybirds.com. Updating this way should maintain your progress just fine, but if you want to be safe backup you LUA files first. Those files are typically found in your /user/AppData/Rovio/ folder, but that path can vary slightly depending on your version of Windows.
  2. If you update in-game it will download a new installer and overwrite the old one, so if your keen on keeping the older version (just in case you want to revert) backup the installer. This is probably something most people don’t care too much about.

Mini-bug: Some users have reported that Chapter 17 is not unlocked when they open the app after updating. The “Coming Soon” banner should be gone, but you see all padlocks. Solution: Re-defeat the last level of Chapter 16 (level 16-15) and click the “»” symbol when it shows your score. You should be rerouted to level 17-1.

    It has not been officially released, as shown at download.angrybirds.com.

    Must be either a pirated version with a crack / keygen or a heavily modded / hacked AB.

    By zar

    Hard to believe, but I have no other obvious explanation.

    All of our previous ABs (2xAB & 2xRio) were bought through the official channels.

    What a head-scratcher. No worries – when it’s officially released, I’ll just have to pay (again?). More than happy to as my whole family has had literally months of fun with the series on PC – & the cost is almost negligible.

    =]

    By zar

    Also, I posted about the PC version of AB being updated to 1.6.3 on either the 4th or the 5th (as soon as it was released) but my post got baleeted & other ‘official’ information was generated saying “A BIG THANKS to @highflyer for being the first to report this to us!”

    Bit of a snub really. Any way to see all of my prior posts without having to hunt them down manually? Not too worried about my e-peen, but I’d appreciate just a little recognition…

    Yes, your post was deleted as repetitive. Highflier reported the update about half an hour beforehand. (his was 6:22, yours 6:48)

    We appreciate the notice by all members, but there were quite a few people who reported it quickly, so we give credit to the very first.

    Can you elaborate on exactly what is going wrong? Is it simply that the download won’t start? Or is it starting and failing after some percentage.

    Have you tried other browsers (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera, Safari)? I just went on my home computer and downloaded the .exe through FireFox so the server seems to be working OK. Must just be a browser issue, so a quick browser change could do it.

    Downloads fine on my office computer via FireFox. Perhaps check your proxy settings.

    Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Settings (in the Connection section)
    — If you don’t connect to the Internet through a proxy (or don’t know whether you connect through a proxy), select No Proxy.
    — If you connect to the Internet through a proxy, compare Firefox’s settings to another browser’s

    “OK” out of everything.

    Worst case scenario, try downloading in another browser, such as IE, Chrome, or Opera.

    I’m guessing their servers are having problems and it’s absolutely nothing wrong on the users end of things, but of course I could be wrong as I don’t have access to their server logs

    Not sure. Some users reported an error trying to open the app due to a missing visual C++ library, so perhaps that’s what was included.

    By MikeB

    I noticed today that my AppUp version of Angry Birds no longer shows up in the AppUp purchased applications screen (though I still see transaction history for it). Doing a search as if I wanted to purchase it new comes up without any matches (only Rio is available). Not sure if this means they are updating the application on AppUp…or if they are removing it from the service. The game still works on my PC, but if I wanted to download it for a laptop, that is no longer possible. Hopefully this is temporary.

    You should contact AppUp’s support about it and get some details.

    By MikeB

    I checked in with AppUp support, and they are aware. The response does not sound like it’s down to load an update – sounds more like they have a legit problem. Here is the full response:

    Thank you for contacting the Intel AppUp (SM) center support. The disappearance of the Angry Birds* application has been noticed as well by the AppUp center team and they have been working round the clock to identify the issue on how this had happened and to put a permanent remedy in place.

    I believe you will be able to see the Angry Birds application in the AppUp center soon.

    Thanks for the update Mike. I still didn’t have AB in my apps this morning, but I did a search in the store, and it was listed. When I went back to my apps, it was back.

    It’s good to know that they are expecting the update soon. Either App Up or Rovio should put something in the description letting people know that it hasn’t been abandoned on there. It might stop so many low star ratings and warnings about no updates in the reviews if they did.

    Rank: Boss Hog with 13330 points
    By kathi17 (@kathi17)

    Oooops, as I read that again, I see they didn’t say the update was going to be there soon, just the app. As much as I love Rovio, by leaving those of us who purchased AB on App Up hanging with no word on updates, it doesn’t make either company look very good. It still looks like an abandoned app that you have to repurchase again from a different place in order to receive updates.

    Do you click the “>>” symbol when you pass level 16-15? Haven’t heard of this failing for anyone. Also, is all of Chapter 17 padlocked, or does it say Coming Soon?

    By pandygirl

    Yes, and when chapter 17 shows up, it say “coming soon” and also all is padlocked.

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    “Coming Soon” means your app is not up to date. Grab the latest update from the Mac AppStore and you should be all set. (If Chapter 17 still appears padlocked, then re-defeating 16-15 will work, but I believe that has been patched).

    By pandygirl

    I just thought I’d give Rovio another nudge about updating the App Up version, especially since so many people are still buying it there expecting to get the whole game. This was today’s response:

    Angry Birds Team, Oct-19 12:58 (EEST):

    Hi Kathi,

    and thank you for contacting us!

    The update that contains the last chapter of Ham ‘Em High and mine and dine has not yet been released for the Intel AppUp version of the game. It will be, though, eventually, but unfortunately we can not answer questions about exact release dates.

    Best Regards,

    Veera
    Angry Birds Team

    My thoughts are that Rovio is trying to add activation or something to the App Up edition. While I hate piracy, especially when people pirate such an inexpensive game, I feel that Rovio is doing the wrong thing by letting honest people keep purchasing this app without letting them know that it is not the full version.

    Rank: Boss Hog with 13330 points
    By kathi17 (@kathi17)

    Yes! There is an update for AB on App Up finally! Still downloading, I sure hope it’s 1.6.3!

    Yes, I now have 1.6.3 from App Up! It has the glitch where you have to defeat 13-15 again I assume before the levels are unlocked.
