I’m experiencing lag when playing Star Legends, what can I do?
A high ping is indicative of an unstable internet connection. First, try just playing on a 3G connection. If you don't have a problem, and you do with Wifi, try another internet connection (friends house, coffee shop, etc.) to isolate the problem.
We compared devices, ran a few tests, and determined that any one of the following could interrupt your network connection to Star Legends thereby affecting game play:
• Email push enabled
• Push notifications enabled
• Other applications that require network access (eg. internet music streaming)
• Other applications running simultaneously
• Poor network connection
• Incorrectly configured router if playing over Wi-Fi
With 1-4 disabled, there were no lag spikes when playing on the devices that had them previously, 3G or Wi-Fi.

I'm having trouble installing or updating Star Legends on my Android device. What’s wrong?
First, try restarting your device. A clean restart can sometimes be all you need.
Second, make sure you have enough free space on your device to download and update the app.
If the above doesn't work or isn't an issue, then there may be a problem with your Market app or installation on your your SD Card. Try the following:
- Uninstall Star Legends
- Unmount your SD Card
- Clear your Marketplace cache and data in your applications manager
- Install Star Legends
- Remount the SD Card
- Then move Star Legends back to the SD Card (if you want)
Some devices fail to install large apps directly to SD Card.
Find the .android_secure directory on the sdcard and remove the ‘smdl2tmp1.asec’ file. You can either do this by mounting the sdcard on a computer, or with a file manager app

When I try to login I get a message telling me my password is wrong, but I checked and it’s right. What should I do?

How do I add another player to my friends?
