I've been playing TDS without issue since around Christmas time. There was just a recent update a day or two ago (today is march 21st) and I didn't notice anything funny until I opened up TDS this morning. I was greeted with the Imperial Propaganda Emperor banner that was announcing the new challenge (decorator droid challenge).
I was eager to begin playing. I sent my first decorator droid to decorate a level. After that I clicked on the Imperial Officer icon in the top right corner. The game popped up a message that read "Tiny Death Star has unexpectedly stopped" and it asked me to report or hit ok. I hit ok the first time and opened it back up and tried again. Same effect. So I just kept playing as normally hoping that it would fix itself with a patch or something later on.
As seems to be the case, I couldn't leave well enough alone so I began searching here to see if others have had this issue. Then I got the bright idea to just restart my phone. Since the reboot, every time I try to open TDS, I get the unexpectedly stopped message during the Lucas Arts screen and it won't even open up.
This is extremely frustrating. And I don't dear uninstall and reinstall the app for fear of losing all of my hard-earned data (levels, bux, coins, etc).
I'm not linked on a FB account. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S4, running Android 4.4.2. Tried clearing my Cache. No change.
UPDATE: 4:35 PM CST 3/21/14 I figured I would try to rule out any other things, hardware related. So I moved the data from my SD Card to the Phone internal memory. After doing that, I was able to open and play the program. But it still stops unexpectedly when I click on the Imperial Officer, or the Album (in the menu) or the Levels (in the store).
I'm curious to know if I can reinstall just the last update as everything seemed to play well up to that point. If I could reinstall, maybe it would fix the issue. Any input on where I can find the file for that update?
