[Fixed] Google play games problem

#1

Post by rare_metal » Tue Mar 14, 2017 22:33

Leaderboard and achievments are unavailable. When i've updated the game and start it's entered my account automatically. But when i tap google play icons nothing happens. Just flash and main menu message changes.

For me it is a problem that "google play games" is now required to play TheoTown since the last update (Version 1.2.47)

When i try to play TheoTown, I get a "google play games is required" announcement every few seconds.
Afterwards the game freezes for a few seconds.
Then i can play TheoTown for a few seconds, till the next "google play games is required" announcement stops the game again.

I dont know why I should install that new google app. In my opinion i already have installed more than enough apps from google...
I didnt here of it before and i dont see a reason why it is now required to play a simple game.

Perhaps it is for new functions? But which new functions exactly?

And is it possilble to de-activate that functions in the settings, so that i can play TheTown without installing that for me unknown and untrustworthy google app?

Built-In Achievements couldn't be assigned to your personal Google account. We will add support for not using Google Game Services, but it will have some disadvantages as we then cannot link any information to your account.

@Matison
Actually, internet shouldn't be needed to get achievements.

Thank you very much! I will try it, even if i will have to face some disadvantages.

Honestly I do not know what that achievements are made for, so i think i will be able to live without them...?

Thank you, Kingtut 101!

For everybody who is wondering about what is meant with "achievements and leaderboards":

In 249 you can disable game services in the settings.
