    If you have the game, you know about the speed issue.

    Version 1.1 has been released and the description says "speed optimization".

    Hopefully this isn't some old patch as the app store constantly prompts me to download old updates. But iTunes says the current version is 1.0.


    Honestly, I hate the update system sometimes. I download 4 'new' updates, then I get prompted to download them again immediately after! So I dl just the LUX update, then I get prompted to download the old update! Makes absolutely no sense.

    Is there an online guide on how to play this? I love risk and I've read the instructions and it was a relatively pricey app and I haven't played it because I don't know how :(

    This is good news. I'm sure a lot more people will be playing this including myself.

    I don't understand, the game seems even more broken than it was before...

    First of all, it still runs like garbage. Now instead of slow laggy gameplay, it slows down then speeds up to catch up...
    The other thing I noticed is the bonus don't get applied properly. I was sure I had conquered an area that gave a +2 bonus, yet my troops/turn remained at 3.
    The OTHER thing I noticed was a graphical flaw with the playerboard on the bottom left, having 5 players and the "box" around it only covers the first two players.

    We've been waiting forever for this update, this is terrible support for a high priced game.

    Edit: well I restarted my Touch and the speed seems a little better. But I'm sure the bonus+troop system is broken. I'm sure of it, unfortunately.

    Lux DLX is a bigger mess than before. So much for the update. This is as bad as the update to Asphalt 4.

    Seriously, it's time everyone go buy vConqr...that's what I play and will now continue to play.

    Has anybody else experienced flaws with the bonus system now?

    Than I just won't update. It wasn't very laggy on my iPod Touch and everything worked quite good. If this update makes a mess of it I'll just keep the old version. Who agrees?

    I really don't understand the complaints. I updated and it fixed everything. The game runs perfect now.

    Are you guys using jailbroken devices or something?

    So on your iPhone it works good? Than I'll give the update a try. My iPod Touch isn't Jailbroken.

    Yeah, it works great. Much better than before.
    BTW, I have a 3G. Sometimes the device makes a difference.

    If I'm not mistaken, you can replace the updated version with the old one if it doesn't work. You just have to take the file out of the trash and replace it. I might be wrong, but it should work.

    That's right. Your old file will automatically go into the trash but you can retrieve it if need be.

    I'm using a standard 2nd Gen Touch.

    I'll try to word out my problem. Say I'm playing the Castles Nano map. You start with +3 troops no matter what, so then I go an conquer one of the castles or the arenas and get a +1 or +2 bonus from that, the only thing is, I won't get the bonus. It stays on +3. But then when I get another one, then the bonus gets applied. So if I got +1 then +2, I'd have total +6 bonus. Lets say I lost the +2 one (or even the +1 too), it would go back down to a +3 total bonus.

    This is annoying to me and I don't know to how much of an extent this ocurrs.

    I tried out the Castles Nano map. I did get the bonus on both the castles immediately everytime i took over one. When i lose them, i lose the correct amount of bonus. Not sure what caused your problem. Maybe you want to manually delete and reinstall the game?

    As for speed, the update is hands-down much faster than the original version.

    Well, i tested with 2 human players. Not sure if your problem only happens when there's AI players. Anyways, if you think you have a concrete series of steps that can reproduce the bug 100% of the time, you should give Sillysoft a heads up at http://sillysoft.net/forums/

    If you read their forums, you'll know they do respond to user feedback.

    I really liked the lite version of this. But it seems not worth to buy this full version...

    Didn't even need replicating. I re-installed and made a game and one of the AIs already had Infinite Loop still with +3 bonus.

    The DLX version doesn't offer much in terms of graphics or animation, and honestly, not much in terms of innovative gameplay. It's a straight up Risk-type game, and you'll need to be the judge of whether the additional maps make it worthwhile. I never criticize devs on how they price their apps...it's a labor of love for them.
