This is how it worked before. People with old devices were/are not able to download the latest version.

However, what has changed is that people who have deleted the game from their device can now download an old version. Before, if you deleted Celtic Heroes from your iPod Touch 2G, you were unable to download the app again.


So, technically instead of the applestore auto updating the apps. Its finds the version compatible to your current device and lets you download it. Sweeet!

That is excellent news for the time being, but may I ask if there will be absolutely mandatory updates in the future that you cannot play the game without? For example: the new engine. Supposing apple kept this change in place, would these devices be able to play that older version after the engine update, update 5, update 6 etc. or is it only until the next major update comes?

It is possible that yes, in the future you will only be able to play the game if you have the latest version.

There may come a time when we have to restrict what versions of the game can connect to the servers, however we will only be doing this if it is absolutely necessary.

Need to know before i down load the new ios7 currently using ipad2 and iPhone 4, I know some other apps that have already stated it will be buggy untill the update aswell but yet you have said nothing?


I would wait before updating to see how others handle it. There could be some unforeseen bugs given how many different devices there are. Apples north Korea business model won't let you revert to an older iOS unless you jailbreak your device first and go through some painful steps.

My hat is off to OTM on this as virtually no other game bothers to keep old devices compatible. I have a 3G iPhone and I can say that the game is already almost beyond the capabilities of the device. It takes 3 minutes to log on and 1-2 to change maps and gets about 3 frames per second with the detail and draw distance turned down to the lowest setting. Im doubting they could handle the new engine even of apple let them submit it.

Ty for the reply, yes I have. I tried downloading it on an itouch 2g with 4.2(the highest possible for an itouch 2), but it asked me to upgrade to 4.3.1 without the last version compatible option.(apps like fb has offered me last version compatible option) But that isn't possible.

The 3GS goes up to iOS 6 point something I think, and the current ch just needs 4.3.1.
