What's New in Version 1.3.6
Fixed rare crash on game start.
I've had lots of fun with this game. I started having problems with the navigation as the camera would stick and go constantly to one side. One day in frustration I hit all the arrow keys at the same time and that would kick start the camera to center and then I was able to play. In the options setting I chose to slow the camera speed and made the screen larger. I'm now stuck on the "Best of Breed" scenario and have played it at least 9 times, only to fail because I can't get by breed quality high enough. If I only had one more year.
Have been playing this on a 13" MacBook for nearly a year. It's difficult to navigate quickly through the fields using the arrow keys and the track pad, and without fail, the navigation ends up sticking at some point, so that the navigation zooms constantly to the left. (I hold down the right key and I go right, until I let go and the game automatically zooms left, making it impossible to do anything to the fields on the right of the screen.) When this happens, I have to quit the game (losing all that year's progress) and restart it to get the navigation back to normal. This bug has made this game such a pain I don't enjoy it anymore.
This is a fun game to play! The game starts easy and gets hard as you begin new stories.
