Story World Beta has been released and open to public, and I have to admit, it wasn’t that much of a successful launch. As a newbie to server-client programming, I had to label it “Beta” until I master this complex part of development that I still have to hone.
Now that a patch is recently published, the registration bug has been resolved. However, there’s another problem: most players who got an error upon signing up with the last update (1.0.7) want to claim the author name they used in the first place. Turns out, it was a server-side error and was just fixed a few moments ago.
For the players who want to claim their first, original account, firstly let me explain what happened. You’ve already signed up and your account already exists as the errors suggest, but the password recovery thingy failed to work which brings up “An error occurred”. And when you tap Register once more, it says errors about account or author name being existent because it does exist, it’s just not accessible. The only solution is to reset your password.
Please type in your email address under the Story World tab and tap “Recover password”. You should be able to change your password and finally log in. If that didn’t help, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Story World Account Reset”. Specify the email and author name used. I’ll delete your account for you so that you can sign up again.
I’d like to give my apologies to those who experienced these beta bugs. And if you happen to come across a bug, don’t hesitate to contact us. More patches coming for Story World coming up!
On the good side of things, “The Letter”, the prequel of Seen, will start development next month as well as the long-awaited iOS port. Seen is also going to be translated into different languages soon (e.g. Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Filipino, etc.).
Happy writing, playing, and publishing!
