I was talking to a friend of mine about this game and I understand that the game has been out for 5 years so I don't know if maybe they are taking the game packs down cause of licensing issues?? But, the real piss off is that there was no warning or timetable for this to be closed down. Im sure if enough people bitched to krome about this they "may" bring this back.

My friend brought up a good point in kinda bribing krome and saying " there are thousands of people that want to play this and if you put the game out till the end of the year or even 3 months, think of all that money you could make" I personally think that we has a gaming community can get on krome case about this they could come out and say " ok, we are putting everything back for 3 months and after that it's done"

At least we would have a timetable on when we can complete this. This could work but I guess we will all just find out

I don't think it was really meant to be taken down in the first place. The staggered and messed up way that it slowly went out the door doesn't seem like something that was supposed to happen. Hopefully it gets fixed, but that's what I think it is -- a fix.

I can't even get the game to work for me anymore, I load it up and it freezes on 'Press Start' the moment I hit the start button.

Some have found success by deleting the system cache, but that didnt work for me. The foolproof way seems to be signing in as offline as soon as you start your xbox, starting Game Room, then attempting to play any ranked mode which will force you online.

That is something that should be reported to Xbox support not here on TA. I have reported it to them and they don't seem to know it was a issue. Either go to the Xbox forums or @xboxsupport on twitter.

Also bribing Krome won't do any good since MS owns the rights to game room.

They have shut down the servers for good on 31st October 2017.

Oh no.. can you still play games you've bought, or is that locked off now too?

You can play the games you've bought, but you can't get Survivalist or Point Buster medals as they are linked to the leaderboard servers. You can only get Time Spender medals.

We have applied the Discontinued flag to all the achievements you can no longer earn.

You've missed one achievement called "Fancy Arcade" which is also partly discontinued.

Thank you Elliot Pierson. We have now flagged that achievement with Extra Content Required and Partly Discontinued.

It shows in my internal storage that I have packs 1 to 13, but in game only shows 3 arcade cabinets. Can anyone explain why I can't see the other games that were a part of that? Just looking to get as many achievements in this game as I can now that we can no longer get online

Did you purchase games? The packs were only the data- you had to purchase each game you wanted individually.

That explains it. Most likely not as I was pretty broke at that time. Well fuck-a-doodle-do
