We pushed a desktop app update a few days ago. As many of you have experienced, there was a bug that caused the Adobe AIR updater to… well, not update. The desktop app proceeded to check again for said update, which caused another failed update, and round and round it goes.
The good news: the problem is with the updater, not our desktop app itself. The bad news: While we fix the wonky updater, the only way to bypass it is to manually uninstall the app, then reinstall it fresh from our website. (Of course, you can always play from the website – just leave it open in a spare browser tab.) Here’s how to get the new version:
- Locate the folder called “RingorangDesktop.” You should find it in your Program Files (on Windows) or Applications folder (on Mac OSX). Banish it to your OS’ trash/recycle bin/landfill/skid row.
- Go to http://qe.ringorang.com (sign-in if you're not already). Click “play with the desktop app” underneath the game device on the left. The device will slide away, revealing...
- ...the “install now” button. Click it. Trust it. Enjoy it. It'll take you where you need to go.
Again, huge apologies for all the hassle. If you're curious as to what the update is, we've replaced the text-based dallion countdown (which appeared above the Qs) with a dallion meter which, we think, gives a better visual indication of how many dallions are at stake at any given moment. As the meter shrinks, it will change color from green to yellow to red. The seconds timer in the top-right remains. Altogether, we think (and hope you'll agree) that this makes the experience a little more intuitive.
