    I have the same issue. I'm using an iPad Air 2, what's your gaming platform?

    Question: I always use iTunes gift cards for purchases. If I requested a refund for Stranger's Wrath, will it be added back to my iTunes balance or put on my credit card even though I didn't use it to purchase that app?
     
  3. It'll be back in your iTunes balance IIRC, however I'd wait for a patch, the devs behind SW are quite dedicated, probably they have already sent a patch.

    If I request a refund, get it, and then they issue a patch later. What then?

    It's a shame the update killed such a cool looking game. If other developers take notice of these game breaking issues then a fix for this epidemic will come sooner. The GPS Receiver issues and Touch ID mishaps should also be addressed quickly. I predict a fix by next wednesday. Granted i'm usually optimistic.

    i tried various games now and the only one i could find with new issues was Strangers Wrath.The characters textures are heavy"flickering"now.I already shout a mail to the very responsive developer,i'm sure it will be fixed asap.All other games running fine.Games like Bioshock,Xcom EW (no soundproblems here),Kotor,Oceanhorn,COD Strike Team,Star Horizon,Mass Effect,Crisis in Command series and much more...Air 2 with 8.3 (well,that was obvious).

    I got the confirmation that the next (already submited) update for Strangers Wrath not only brings controller sensitivity but also the iOS 8.3 fixes.All good...

    Just thought i'd revive this thread to let everyone know that the 8.4 update fixes the issues with Unreal Engine games. Funny thing is they didn't even mention the fix in the patch notes for the 8.4 update.

    Thanks. Apple is famous for silent fixes. I wonder if the sounds issues are fixed in XCOM:EW on iPad Air 2.

    The point being... does it break other games?

    Hi Klink,

    Please let me know whether XCOM works if you are updating. I held off from 8.3 for that very reason.

    Cheers dude

    I played for 20 minutes and no sound issues. So far looking good.
