Unable to connect to server
I just bought this game during the Autumn Sale cause of all the good reviews I saw. Nobody mentioned constantly losing connection to the server, though. Is this normal? After 2 hours of playing I've only been able to save my score about 5 times, the rest of the time the game loses connection when I die making me lose all progress / scores / XP. It's extremely frustrating and I'm honestly not that interested in continuing unless it's something that can be fixed.

So...anybody else have this issue? Is it just a temporary glitch? Is there a fix?

This is one of the main reasons I am so against always-on interenet access / DRM required to play games. My connections reliability isn't the issue, the servers is, and I have no access to it. Had there been some mention of this being part of Cargo Commander I probably wouldn't have bought it.

this is - unfortunately - a known issue, many of us have to deal with. the latest patch should have fixed this but since people still report this problem, i guess it's not really fixed yet.
you can try an older version, which seem to be more stable.

the version 1.0.2 can be played by opening Cargo Commander's properties, selecting the Beta Tab and then choose "Beta" from the drop down menu. the password is 'ateb'. then let Steam download what is needed.

Awesome, thanks, I'll give this a shot. I tried playing again after posting and wasn't able to save once, but I kept playing because it's just so damn fun.

if you tried version 1.0.2 make sure to set it back to normal (opt out of all Beta programs) to give the just released 1.0.7 a shot. it might be more stable and since it's a 75mb download it might even come with some new content!

1.0.7 fixed this issue for me.

I'll give the new version a shot, too. I tried the beta as recommended and ended up playing for about 3 hours with no issue which gives me hope for the just released 1.0.7. Excellent game, developers :)
