I installed this over the weekend on my old Samsung A6+. For some reason it doesn't sign in to Play Games, it just keeps loading. Apart from that it works great. Sometimes when I had it minimised for a while and I go back to it it force closes and I have to open it again. This is an old phone though.

Currently on 1100% multiplier, almost on to the ELT.

Morning. Working on the next token now. It's a bit faster at least.

Thanks for trying it out. I'm sorry it's causing those issues for you. I'll see if I can get an emulator for that and test it to see what the error is for the closing crash.

1100% sounds good. Feel free to post any screenshots or give any feedback/critique.

Ok so I managed to find an A5 and an A7 emulator, not an A6, but I couldn't see any issues on them. Yes it also couldn't log into Google Play but it kept asking me to update Google Play Games but would fail the update so I think that maybe the cause maybe for me, that my Play Games is out of date so it won't log in.

I ran the emulators and minimised the app and played other games on them for like 10 minutes and then came back to the app but still couldn't see anything. But I'll keep checking to see if I can find the issue.

Thanks for trying it out and for the feedback. My main device is an S20 also and haven't seen that force close issue on my side, but I'll get more emulators to try and get it to break so I can see the error for it.

I updated my Play Games but it still does not log in.

Hi all. Quick announcement. In the next update there are going to be changes to the Insight Tokens, so if you have any tokens currently try and spend them on constellation research otherwise they will be lost. Generally you shouldn't have Tokens lying around anyway as in Token form the Data Upgrade boost doesn't give you any benefit. That's partly the reason for the change of Tokens.
I'd like to send the update in the next 12-18 hours maybe and I apologise in advance if you lose any Tokens.

Good morning everyone. An update has just been released for Idle Observatory, the 'Max q' update. Get it on the Play Store by either letting it update by itself or by going to the store page and choosing 'Update'.


The main changes are as follows:

- Added Max limiting feature - Some devices can handle the 'Max' bulk buy setting better than others so added a feature where the player can decide what level works best for their 'Max'. Now when on the 'Max' setting it will buy the maximum able to be bought up till the limit set.
- Split Data Storage and Insight Token menu - Split them into their own menus with navigation tabs.
- Added tap popup display delay setting - Players can now change the time that the text is shown when tapping on the main screen from Off to 10 seconds.
- Fixed sound setting - Made the sound be for the game and not ringtones of call volume.
- Added quotes on startup screen - A random quote will be displayed on the startup screen.
- Added another constellation - Added another constellation to research.
- Removed Tokens - Removed them as they were redundant and will use them later for the purpose they were actually meant for.

Does anyone know what Max q is?

Thank you for all the support and feedback. Keep it coming.
