Fixed the crashing problem

The only thing for me it doesn’t crash on is the tutorial!
I really hope this gets fixed because I played this on Xbox and it was great. I don’t get any lag or anything but every time I try to go into a game it loads a bit but then crashes. And there was more maps on Xbox I think? I will not go to the support website if you are from team 17 support then you will be able to go to the producers without people going to the website. Its not just me who has this problem I have seen five bad reviews about this problem so obviously it’s a very common problem. I would like to note that it seems like this problem is only for iPad mini two users hence the good reviews.

I am now extremely happy that you have finally fixed the broken crashing problem good job team 17

This is just what I was looking for not only it improves the graphics but every thing else . The crafting is easy looting inmates isn’t as overpowered and whole game is an improvement. One last thing I miss doing a prison take over because it just gives you so much adrenaline.

Best regards keep up the good work

Great but...

I actually enjoy this game and have wtached youtubers in the past playing this on different consoles and stuff. Well i was playing this game and every time i play this game, after every half half an hour my game freezes for 10secs and i carry on playing for another 10sec and then it crashes. It happens everytime i go on. And the most annoying this is this game doesnt save your progress. I would give you 5 stars if you wouldve fixed it becasue i had to redo the same progress 3 times and it was all for nothing. Its really annoying and the saving is so broken in this game. I wait for the autosave/manual save icon to go away every time it saves in game but when it finishes and i go off and later when i come back on, i have to redo the complete thing that took me 20 mins to do. Please fix this because this is one of my favourite games and i really enjoy this. Its just a shame that the progress isnt working.
Thank you very much 🙏
