Local multiplayer doesn't work! - iOS 8.1

PostThu Oct 02, 2014 6:51 pm

I want to play Junk Jack X on my iPhone and iPad. Bluetooth is turned on.

Ok now i click on the HOST-Button. On my iPad i click on JOIN. I just takes about 2 seconds until it finds my iPhone. The device name appears for about 1 second but then it gets replaced by a message:

"looking for peers"

3 min later - nothing happens...

I also tried the other way by hosting on my iPad.

My devices:
- iPhone 6 :D
- iPad 3

Please help! :dunno:


#UPDATE - 23.10.2014 - Same problem with iOS 8.1

Solution (thx - eViL Dee):
On one iPad (we'll call this A).
Start the game.
Press Multiplayer and Local\Host.

On the other iPad (this is B).
Start the game.
Press Multiplayer and Local\Join.
You will see the device search, find the host, but ignore it. It will keep 'looking for peers'. Let the device keep doing this.

On iPad A
Pause and Exit your game.
Then start another.
Press Multiplayer and Local\Host again.

On iPad B
The search should now see the host.
Select the host to join.

Issue is iOS 8, not the app. You need to wait till Apple fixes their shiz.

iOS 8 is very buggy. I stuffed my phone with cool tweaks instead. :asd:

Yeah, I Disabled most of my Tweaks for when I play DeepWorld. They are still installed, but just not activated, which means they are not using any RAM :)
