Re: UPDATE 1.3?

Yo, Paulie! Got any good news for the long-sufering Title Bout fans? :) Have us wondering which we'll see first, the next version of your titanic efforts or Bermane Stiverne fighting Vitali Klitschko.... ;)

Re: "Your license is out of date" message

The "out of date" issue has been resolved in v1.3, but in previous versions it is cleared by reconnecting your pc to the internet and restarting the game. If your PC is standalone then manually release and re-enter your licence. The game should not "Just sit there" when entering you licence. Check ...

Re: License is Out of Date

You release the game from inside of it. Main Menu, options, then the General tab to do so. Then from the website request that the license be released. Once that's done, then go back to the game and re-enter the license. I see no reason why you would need to do a reinstall. Nothing I've tried worked...

Re: License is Out of Date

So, John, to the best of your knowledge, releasing the license via the webstore is the only way to fix this? In Windows 8, where do you go to unlicense the game, or is that option gone? Seems like a drastic option to fix what could turn out to be a repeatable occurrance.... :?

After you've redesigned the Fight Screen, the only thing left to do is change the font for the boxers' names so it's easier to read and fits in the available space when they have longish names like Phineas Basil-Smythe Philpott. :)
