Available On Amazon AppStore?

Recommended Posts

Agreed! Love this on my iPhone ... but want to play it on my Kindle Fire. Hey ... it's already an Android app ... does it take much more to make it play on the Fire?

 It's possible to play Elder SIgn Omens on the kindle fire, it just takes an android phone, a computer and a (very) little tech savvy.

The game won't run by itself because even after side-loading, the game fails to download the cache files for the game, so you have have to side-load the application and manually copy the cache files from your phone to your Kindle, here's how:

 

  1. First, purchase and install the game from the Android Market onto your android phone.
  2. Then install a file manager with the capability to back up installed apps (I use Astro file manager, available for free on the Android Market).
  3. Run Elder sign omens and download all of the cache files to your phone (I've not yet tried this with the tablet files but it may work).
  4. Run Astro and use the app backup feature to back up Elder Sign Omens, (Astro will place the .APK file in a folder called Backups on the root of your phone's SD card)
  5. Copy the Elder Sign APK file and the com.fantasyflightgames.ESAndroid folder from your phone (on my Nexus S it was in /android/data/com.fantasyflightgames.ESAndroid) and paste onto your computer.
  6. Go into the device settings on your Kindle Fire and set the "Allow installation of applications from unknown sources to" option to ON
  7. Install a file manager with the ability to install .apk files on your Kindle Fire (Astro isn't on the Amazon App Store yet, so I used AndroXeplorer which is avalable for free)
  8. Paste the .APK to your kindle (Doesn't matter where), and paste the com.fantasyflightgames.ESAndroid folder into the /android/data/ folder on your kindle
  9. open your file manager and navigate to wherever on your kindle you placed your Elder Sign APK file and you file manager should install it.



After that you should be able to run Elder Sign Omens on your Kindle fire.

 I'm glad the Fire can be hacked to accommodate the game, but I'd prefer FF to list the game on the Appstore.  If Amazon were to update the Fire in a way that circumvents the hack, the game would be lost (albeit, temporarily I'm sure).  It's not worth the hassle; we should be able to simply purchase it for the Fire directly.

Yes, please I need an official supported version for Kindle Fire.

I'm using it now but I think there is something wnet wrong... every midnight (every 4 turns) the doom track advanced of 3. So it is impossibile to get more than 16 turns.

seconded;  hacking the Fire is a kluge-y fix for this problem.  I love Omens on my android phone, but the big screen would rule.

 Just adding another voice hoping to see this on the Amazon Appstore some time soon.

 

Purchased it for my Incredible 2 through the Android Market and I was able to successfully side-load it onto my kindle fire (using the same method described above).  However I am also seeing the same behavior that another user notes above - EVERY midnight I adds 3 doom tokens, without exception. Otherwise it's perfectly playable (just not winnable :P) and by the way - it looks FANTASTIC on the Fire...

Regardless, this is one of the BEST mobile applications I have ever seen  and it represents your  game remarkably well.   The artwork, implementation  and presentation is nearly without peer on the android market right now.  MORE people need to see what you're capable of in the mobile space.

I (for one) will buy it again in a heartbeat as soon as it hits the Amazon Market.  I'm certain that I'm not alone happy.gif  By the way - I'm taking the auto train to Disney world in early march - so by the end of this month would be fabulous gui%C3%B1o.gif

Yes, Please!

I would love to be able to play this on the kindle fire! So many board games are already android apps, where is the hang up!  Amazon, Android, or the individual publishers?!  

Im ready to buy!

 I have it on my phone, but I really want it on my Kindle Fire.  I have the same +3 doom tokens at midnight when I try to sideload it.   Could FFG do a kickstarter.com to pay to convert it to the Kindle Fire?
