    I just loaded up the new Fieldrunners and switched to GameCenter. It didn't list any of the achievements I'd earned in OpenFeint. Is this going to be a general issue with GameCenter, or is it just a Fieldrunners isssue?

    It's a general fault of switching to a new achievement system but that case is specifically the fault of the devs.

    They could have made a small patch update that checked which OF achievements had been unlocked so they immediately unlock the ones in GameCenter.

    Zen Bound 2 unlocked all its achievements once I got the GC update and World Series of Poker game me two based on my chip count (it didn't have any achievements before)

    Ok, I figured the Fieldrunner devs had just dropped the ball there. I wonder what the odds of their fixing that are...

    I bet some of you with massive OF scores are feeling lost right now. :(

    GC deleted all my progress in Enigmo 2, and I still have all my boards in Touchgrind, which is a problem, because now I can't unlock any of the achievements. :/

    Hey Guys,
    Jason with OpenFeint here. Very soon we will be releasing tools to allow developers to easily integrate OpenFeint and Game Center together. If they decide to use game center features, your leaderboards and achievements will transfer over instantly. Fieldrunners didn't want to wait for them though. I suspect they'll add our tools once we release them.

    Thousands of developers have expressed interest in keeping OpenFeint for advanced features (action replays, challenges, turn based multiplayer, etc.), existing friends lists & forums, and upcoming cross platform voice multiplayer support (PlayTime!). I'm anxiously awaiting to see what all of you think too!

    Anyway, we're doing everything in our power to make it easy for devs to integrate both OR move away to Game Center. Apple went out of their way to make it harder than it should be, but it's possible to do it. Just let the developers of your favorite games know what you want.

    Thanks for the continued support! :)
