    @Ryan Since yesterday GT Racing 2 has been pushing pop-up alarms several times in a row.
    I have all notification options turned off in-game. Also checked the native Alarm app.
    Is there any way to stop this? Is this a bug?

    I mentioned above, I get the exact same thing. Its a disgusting tactic. I love the game and love the support, but sorry... I have to have my phone turned up for my alarm clock and emergency notifications and don't like being woken at 3 in the morning to tell me that my virtual Chevy is rusting out. Bullsh*t.

    Alarms set by using the OS alarm app work just fine, even if you've turned down the volume for ringer and media. No problem at all.

    Nevertheless, Gameloft needs to fix that asap.

    I know. I'm aware of this. My point is, the only to to stop their alarm is to essentially turn the phone off, which kills my emergency calls and the alarms I set. Microsoft needs to implement a block on these apps the can't hijack the alarm clock... scared to see what they think of next.

    Can't u just turn off toast notifications within the game or just block the background tasks for the game? Has anyone tried it?

    That won't help. It's not a background when agent that's used here, but an OS provided API that grants access to alarms. It's not hijacking or anything, just regular use of an official API.
    Gameloft should offer an option to disable that though.

    You may not call it hijacking, but i do. Any use of anything outside of the game without my permission sure sounds like hijacking to me. Potato - Pototo. Either way, its f'n ridiculous....and the a l alarm just came up again while i was typing this. Love the game, but i feel like im being stalked.

    Hey, I found a graphical glitch in GT Racing 2 the blue sea apears black and it looks black in every map where it should be blue. I'm running Lumia 925 WP8
    Picture: http://1drv.ms/1lSncYi
    @Gameloft_Ryan hey Ryan I even have the same graphical glitch but to me it happens mostly when I am playing in NIGHT LEVELS. The grass green starts turning black.....
    Is it due to WP8.1?

    The Windows 8 version has horrible graphic stitching problems at the bottom of the screen. And when you go into the settings and set the view for dashboard, it reverts to bunker in the game. Then using the options from within the game, the dashboard view is no where to be seen.

    One more thing now that I've played GT Racing 2 a bit longer. The headlights are non existent in the dash and bumper view making it impossible to see where you are going on the night boards.

    There may be some annoying bugs right now but remember this is the first version of the game, most of this might get solved in the upcoming 512mb update. So we wait...

    Keep in mind that none of the Gameloft games is optimized for WP 8.1 as of yet. So many bugs you currently come across might be due to the fact that you're running 8.1

    So have you guys given up support for 512mb ram? :P Jk Jk

    Btw people who downloaded my little pony, does this game also require an active internet connection?? Just curious about Gameloft's approach :)

    Hi Ryan,
    I'm a Lumia 525 user and have issues with asphalt 8. The game is not available in the store and when i reach it via google or bing search it gives an error. Please solve this issue its really painful that such a great game has issues with 525.

    Here we go again... -_____- I'm working with Mobile Nations staff to try and get my auto-spam blockage nonsense removed when I quote posts in my replies. Until then, please check out my homemade response stuff below. I'm sorry if I missed anything:

    @andrei_1998 - What about those games? Need a little more to go on >.<

    @dda_k - Please let our support team know about this issue. Since you don't appear to be running the 8.1 Preview, that's something we should definitely address and fix! They'll get some tech info from you and work on reproducing the issue on our end.

    @People talking about connections for mobile games - I can say that all Gameloft games moving forward will more than likely at least require a connection upon startup. It's just the way our Devs have been going with new games but I do my best to make sure I relay community feedback on the issue to them.

    @BadIntentVG - That issue is possibly due to the 8.1 Preview. As for other games that crash, please please please (for anyone, not just you), if you have crashing issues tell our support team. The more crashes that are reported, the more information we have, and then we are more likely to figure out the cause of the problem. It's good to let me know, but it's better to get all of your tech information over to the support team because they can easily send those details right over to each game's Dev team.

    @Philhachey - As you can see, my method of responding is a little different than what I've previously done ): So it's possible I missed a question or two but anyways...I haven't seen any updates planned for MC4 because the main focus for the series has been on MC5 which is looming. Once we get through the very busy summer of launches and previously planned updates, it's possible the team give MC4 a QOL update.

    @KrisJoeEll - That behavior for notifications seems really strange. It shouldn't be like that so I'll ask and see. Let me know if it continues because sometimes I've seen our notifications go a little haywire for a day or two and then all of a sudden go back to normal.

    @HyperKid - Same as above, let our support team know. This is something we will need to reproduce on our end and fix (: I don't think it's due to the 8.1 Preview though, since the guy above you with the same issue isn't running it.

    RE GTR2 Update: So the first update will feature the 512MB support, but as others have stated it will more than likely also include some improvements to the game in terms of performance.

    @Usama Jawad96 - Nope, we love our 512MB fans. We are just doing the best we can to push out games and 512MB is still in the plans, just with an update following the launch. MLP does not require a connection based on what I've experienced when playing on iOS.

    @Vinit Shirodker - Are you running the 8.1 Dev Preview? If so, that's probably why you can't find the game at this point in time.

    Again, sorry for the unorthodox way of answering replies, but thanks for bearing with me as this problem is resolved!

    I think I caught you with this one. In my question I mentioned about MC4 update and you said that it needs a little more to go on, but you told Philhachey that no update is coming for MC4.

    Hey Ryan, I was wondering if you guys were still planning on updating Order & Chaos Online. It's a fantastic game but I haven't played it in a while because I have a 1520 and the game icons are glitched. If you are, when do you think would be a reasonable time frame for the update? Thanks again for everything you do. 😊

    @Vint - Asphalt 8 is gonna require about 3 gigs of space, if not 4 I believe. It's gotta do with the unpacking when you're first installing the game.

    @Andrei - Gotcha, sorry must have missed that from earlier then. Like I said though, MC4 doesn't have an update planned for the time being based on what I've seen.

    @Prod1gyHero - Yeah, we are still planning on updating O&C Online! Since it's an Xbox title, there are some other things we have to do to actually update the game so combined with how large the actual update is requires some extra time on our end. Same thing with other Xbox titles like Six Guns.

    @Andrei Dorin - See above! We're still supporting our Xbox titles, they just take a little longer to update so we need some extra time for all of the cool features! (:
