    I'm glad I've finally pleased my toughest critic

    The Top 5 banner is obtained when you first start the program. It'll retry a number of times if it's having problems (ie: no internet connection) and if it fails you'll just get a generic server offline msg. This is all done in the background and doesn't effect your game... And then obviously you can't submit/view your highest score unless you have an internet connection..

    So when you say it will retry a number of times, how many times does it try before it stops? Just asking cause I just hate apps that run in the background continuously... lol...

    BTW, the program is FANTASTIC! I'm sure your program will be on Itunes once Apple allows 3rd party developers to sell their items through there.

    Thanks - yep that was it.

    STE source was showing the old version.

    I've added your source and am ignoring the other.
    Well, it's not "my" source; deadstick is the author, not me.

    Well, I haven't actually *played* it yet... LOL j/k

    Ah, that makes sense. Didn't know if it would error out and you'd "lose" your score if you tried to submit with no internet connection...guess I should play it before I ask questions, eh?

    Damn I had to upgrade---but as you warned---gave up my 58,000+ credits!
    Great game, by the way, but not good for my office productivity!

    Crap, so we lose our credits, eh? Guess it makes sense, what with 0.1 being so generous...

    It retries around 4-5 times with a little delay in between (5 secs) and if it fails after this we never try again (until you restart the app)....

    Weird, I can't get the latest update (0.41) to install. Gets to around ~33% and just stops. Tried from both deadstick's repo and Ste's, same thing. I can install other things just fine. I've aborted out and tried it several times now.

    I know I have a bad source in my list somewhere; when I open installer, it freezes at 5% for about a minute or so. Gonna hafta track that one down...

    edit: Huh...finally went thru. Now I gotta work on a high score!

    MMI please don't crucify me for this... :P

    But I think the delay in the refresh sources started for me with the latest update to the community Sources. Which coincidentaly I noticed that the ModMyIfone site has been incredibly slow no matter what connection or where I use a connection to the site...All other sites load super quick for me except for MMi. Is it possible that the Community Sources refers to the same server that this forum is currently on? If so, it would explain the delay in refreshing sources for me....

    It retries around 4-5 times with a little delay in between (5 secs) and if it fails after this we never try again (until you restart the app)....
    Thanks for clearing that up!

    BTW, does it continue to check while you are playing if it already contacted the server or does it stop communicating once a connection is made?

    Trying to install .41 through ste's source or red wagon, crashes Installer. Tried about 10 times and haven't gotten through. Guess I'll keep trying like HotStuff2 did.

    I really enjoy this game. Too bad they had to reset your credits.
    I wonder if a Video Poker app is around the corner?

    Believe it or not, that's what I wanted to hear My goal was to make it close to a real slot machine... When was the last time you hit the jackpot on a real slot...

    I'm guessing the people that are scoring that high are playing it for a while or just lucky. I haven't found any evidence of cheating, yet....

    BTW, I'm stuck at around 6K and hoping for a big payday....

    I reset your credits on purpose because I wanted everyone at a level playing field for the new highest credits system.... Refunds are in the mail for everyone

    I believe the iblackjack dev Patrick is doing a video poker app...

    Is there a way to get the version 0.1 or 2 again? I searched but with no luck. I want to earn big money again :-) It is fun even if it is not real.

    @deadstick: what a great game, but you will have to make it easier to win again. Yes, it's like the real thing, but unlike the real thing I don't actually get any physical payout for the HOURS of playing. This is just a game - on a phone - that should be fun- so make it fun, let me win big more often! (or set an option)

    What would also be cool is to have some big payout sound effect, maybe even with something 'flashing' - like the real thing.

    Thanks!

    Count me in as someone who would prefer better payouts. It's one thing to be sitting at a slot machine in a casino, where machines are clanging all around, and wait for a payout. But to have to sit through endless slot pulls on an iPhone game? Takes away the fun of playing it IMHO. As it is now it seems worse at paying out than a real slot machine.

    Jrentzke has a good idea on putting an option in, if u choose to play competitively for points and to have your name on the top 5 scrolling board then u can keep that normal and if u opt out u choose to just play for un with the payouts alot better, and maybe an option to put your own text in the scroll bar...BTW it is a great fun app, keep up the good work deadstick
