I just started setting up my new Fairphone 3+ and I like it quite a lot. But there is one game that I really don’t want to leave behind that I can’t seem to get working.
I can install it but it crashes right after launching. According to the developers support documentation this is likely a problem with my devices OS. Here are some things that might point to the problem:
- The game is nearly 2GB big and when installing it via the Play Store all of that data seems to be downloaded. After installation the App only uses a little over 200MB. So it seems that additional game data is not saved.
- Others with a similar problem mention the game has trouble with several User Accounts on one device, but I only have one google account set up.
- Using a custom ROM might be a problem, what is the FP3+ using by default? I haven’t changed anything there.
- Installing the game from another service (not Google Play Store) yields the same result.
Any suggestions what else I could try? Could there be some problem with the google services? Could there be a general problem with apps that used additional files?
Thanks in advance and let me know if you need additional info!
Edit: When I watch the installation process I notice that the Playstore even displays an error popup after installation telling me that it failed, suggesting that I should try to restart the phone or empty the playstore cache. None of this helps.
Another Edit: I tried another game which resulted in the same problem. That one was not that big, but still bigger then your average App.
Yet another edit: The problem seems to be the obb files for apps. The phone has trouble saving those files when installing. They are downloaded but not placed in the right path, the corresponding folder is empty. I haven’t founda a solution, but I’m pretty sure that’s the problem.
