FAQ - Android

I have problems installing the game. What’s going on?

On certain devices/Android OS versions, there’s a problem when installing the game to the SD card.
This is true especially if you’re seeing the ‘Unknown Error 18’ when installing the game, or updating it.
To fix it, there are two options: the hard way, which fixes this for good, and the easy way, which you have to do each time you install an app.

Hard way:

  1. Connect your device to the computer via USB
  2. Mount the device as an USB drive
  3. Go to the ‘.android_secure’ folder and delete the ‘smdl2tmp1.asec’ file
  4. Unmount the device and try to install the game again
Easy way:

  1. Uninstall Guerrilla Bob
  2. Unmount the SD card
  3. Clear the Marketplace cache and data in the Applications Manager
  4. Install Guerrilla Bob again
  5. Mount the SD card back
  6. Move the game to the SD card, if you wish

How do I play a multiplayer game?

Multiplayer works by connecting two devices on the same local area network. Online multiplayer is not supported right now.
You'll be able to connect your device to an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android device, PC or Mac.

One of the devices should be the server, and start the game. You can select either 'Multiplayer->New Game', or 'Multiplayer->Load Game'.
The other device should select 'Multiplayer->Join'.

The server should automatically appear on the hosts list, once it's created.
If it doesn't show up, you could press 'Manual Connect', and enter the server IP. You can find that one by pressing the 'Server Info' button, on the server device.

Once you're connected, the server selects the level, and you can start playing.
