App keeps crashing

I have version 2.01.17 and it keeps crashing when I try to create any list for Horus Heresy v11.003 on an iPhone 6 (iOS 11.4) It just gives the loading circle for about a minute or so and then closes out to my phone’s home screen.

I have deleted and reinstalled the app and redownloaded the file and it still does it.

The HH Legiones Astartes file is the largest data file (that I know of).

The crashing occurred because on many devices the app would run out of memory (RAM).

In version 2.02 and above, there have been significant memory improvements which may now allow your device to use the file.

Please note this depends heavily on your device – older devices with low amounts of RAM will still struggle. Your mileage may vary.

    I’m on 2.01.20 and the app is totally unusable. Can’t sign into google or Dropbox and that’s where all my rosters are. Happened when I updated to this version.

    How the hell has this problem still not been fixed, it’s been well over a year for me.

    I have version 2.19. Every time I try to create a Horus Hersey list. After I input name of list and points, then push the check mark to start. I see the rotating circle for a few seconds, the the program crashes to my home page of my IPad. Why does this happen?

    Why hasn’t this been fixed yet? It’s been almost a year with this problem and still nothing.

    Using iOS 12 and iPhone 6, with Version 2.01.19 and gettin the same.
    App keeps crashing and I get a black screen when I want to make a new roster or look at an old one

  • Stephen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I’ve updated to the newest versions of the app, Horus Heresy data files, and iOS and it still is doing this.
    I’ve deleted and redownloaded as well to no effect.

    Same thing with me, except I’m running an iPhone 5. Busy everything is up to date and I’m running 2.01.19. It hasn’t been working for months for me, I was hoping a fix would be released but once again this app is the worst?

    Same issue, used to be only when working on legionnes astartes lists but is now all forces
