I just bought this lovely tablet yesterday in hopes of playing some Kairosoft games on it. Unfortunately, Pocket League Story, their newest and most recent release on the Android Marketplace is a bust on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. (Well, this is a fact with the Lite version of the game but I don’t think the full version will fare any better since, well, see next paragraph.)
I’ve yet to try their other offerings since I already have Game Dev Story and Hot Springs Story on my iPod touch 4G but I’m sure that they also don’t work well as people have reported on the Kairospot forums that all Kairosoft games exhibit some sort of crash issues on some tablets. There are games from other companies that also experience problems on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 such as Tap Tap Revenge 4, which instantly terminates upon application start, and Destinia which seems to work for a bit if you adjust the game speed to Normal. Unfortunately, that simply delays the inevitable force close.
For what it’s worth, my tablet is not rooted and is running Honeycomb 3.1. I even turned off the volume and wifi to see if that helps with any of the games but alas, neither helped.
So what exactly is the problem here?
I’m no programmer but I take it the issue is the application itself? I took some screens of the crash report that I fired off to Kairosoft and Google for Pocket League Story Lite and it looks to be a Java problem. D:??
Here are the screencaps. (I’m pretty sure I’m not disclosing any important device info or codes that will jeopardize Kairosoft, Google, or Oracle. ^^;)
I wanted to screencap some of the other logs but there were considerably longer. Also, I can’t recall if the last 2 screencaps even contained all the lines of the log. ^^;
Here’s a tiny list of games I’ve sampled that worked for me:
- Zenonia 2 Lite
- Third Blade
