To improve security, increase reliability and build on a platform that will allow us to introduce more features in the game going forward, a new minimum version of the game will be required for online multiplayer games around the first few weeks of February 2018. This is a completely new online multiplayer server system, and although we have tested it for a while to get it as good as we can, I do expect there will be some bugs that will need to be squashed when it hits the real world. If you get this update (version 2.6+) and see any problems with the online multiplayer system, please let us know by sending a screenshot of the problem to support@FullerSystems.com We will be working as quickly as possible to address any issues that come up. Please don't assume a problem is already known to us, but instead send in whatever problems you see.
If you use a device running an older operating system, it is likely that you will not be able to see this update. When we publish updates to the various app stores, there are direct (explicit requirements by the app stores and platforms) and indirect requirements (requirements of the tools to create the update) to use certain minimum device operating system versions. Due to those minimums, we are not able to provide an update to devices that are running old iOS versions below iOS 9, and older Android versions below 4.0.3. If you have a device running iOS 9 or above, or Android 4.0.3 or above, you will see this update and continue without any interruptions after you install it. If you are using a device that has an older version of iOS or Android, try and update to a newer version if it is available on your device so that you can receive this game update when it is released.
The older versions of the game will still function on older devices, but for the online multiplayer feature most all other players (over 99% of all players) will be updating and moving to the newer system when it is released. As a result anyone still on the old version will not see those other players who are using the new version of the game when you play multiplayer games. Players running the new version of the game will be able to play against others on the new version only. After that change is completed and the use of the old multiplayer system drops off, we will determine if we can keep the old system running or if it should be shut down completely if there are not enough players to keep it going.
