"Sending data to leaderboards"
Whenever I finish a level, I seem to get stuck on the Sending Data to Leaderboards screen before the caravan. Closing the game gives me clear data, but my time isn't recorded on the Leaderboards (although, strangely enough, all of my other statistics are). Is anyone else having this problem? Any known fixes?

This happened to me when I finally managed to hit a Wonderful Hero rank in the snake boss stage.

I will double check this with our developers. We are having problems with the game crashing sometimes when leaderboards are switched, too, so there might be something funky going on there :-)

Is there a way to disable the leaderboards?

No, not at this time.

I have the same problem, on the same level (Level 11: Road to Land or Sea); even on other levels, it takes far far longer to upload data to the leaderboards than it should.

I don't care about the leaderboards at all, never look at them, and have no desire whatsoever to ever upload anything there. Please, please add an option to disable uploads to them! Even before this stalling bug on level eleven, the huge wait to upload data to the leaderboards seriously makes the game less enjoyable to me, especially since everything else is so fast and streamlined.

(Ideally it should be threaded and upload it in the background while I play, but I'd be just as happy to disable uploads to the leaderboards entirely, since, again, I don't really care about them.)

EDIT: It's now happening to me on every single level. This is essentially a game-breaking bug, and it's particularly frustrating because a part of the game I don't care at all about (the leaderboards, which I never even look at) are wrecking the entire game for me.

This issue still seems to be a thing. This was not an issue when the game had released.

This pretty much makes single player unplayable because you just get stuck on the leaderboard upload attempt. I recently reinstalled this so I could try to finsh the multiplayer achievements(thankfully seem to have no problem there so far) and maybe improve on my Single Player times and tackle Hard Mode.

I really could not recommend this game(at least the Steam version) at the moment due to this. Really hope this is not an issue in the second game since I don't have that one yet.

Playing with Steam in Offline Mode(actual Offline Mode, not the Appear Offline option) will make it so the game doesn't try to upload.

It's still a huge shame that this is an issue with the game though when it was not like this at launch. Plus I don't know if this would make achievements unobtainable for the parts of the game that would upload to leaderboards(Hero 30, Hero 300, Hero 3) since I don't remember when exactly they unlock or if they would unlock retroactively if needed after switching back to online.

A huge part of the game is time attacking and competing with others on the leaderboard.

So I guess I can try doing Hard Mode fully now, even if I can't upload times to the leaderboard like I would want to. Would have been nice to have under 30 seconds for every Hard Mode Hero 30 level on the leaderboard(actually I do have this on the 360 version, but would have been nice to have on PC as well even though I haven't finished the full run yet), but I guess I'd be fine just having them on my save since uploading to the single player leaderboard doesn't work.

The leaderboard achievement should still be obtainable through the multiplayer maps at the moment, even if it does not always actually upload.
