Chickens Can't Fly

Chickens Can’t Fly 1.1 Issues

26 June 2012 AmusedSloth

Chicken is sad to announce that there seem to be some issue with the newly released Update to Chickens Can’t Fly.

Avatar Awards sometimes unlock without notification

This relates to the Chicken Helmet, which you can unlock by getting Gold medal in 15 experiments.

However, if you managed to get these Gold medal while playing Chickens Can’t Fly 1.0 (before the update), sometimes the Avatar Award notification will not pop up.

After starting the 1.1 game, if you know you have more than 15 Gold medals, just go and try to customize your Avatar on Xbox LIVE, and the Helmet should already be there, even if you didn’t get a notification.

Aquarium Laboratory remains locked for people that already finished CCF completely

If you managed to finish all experiments before the update (congrats, by the way), the Aquarium Laboratory will remain locked.

This is a bug, we’re sorry about it, and we’re working with Microsoft to release a patch as soon as possible (hopefully 1-2 weeks to get through cert), and allow all of you to play this.

Duplicate Chickens Can’t Fly in your Games Hub

Some people managed to download Chickens Can’t Fly even before it was released on February 15th, through a private link. If you have that version of the game and you download the update, it will install as a separate instance of the game, and you’ll have two Chickens Can’t Fly games in your Games hub. While 2 in 1 would usually be considered a nice treat, in this case, the game progress is lost in the 1.1 version.

We are very sad about this, but it seems there’s no way we can fix this.

‘Hungry, hungry Chicken’ still playing hard-to-get

We made some modification to make this achievement easier, but it seems it has some issues on some phones. We’re working on an update to fix this. Meanwhile, check below for an opportunity at getting this achievement easier, available this week.

Issues connecting to Xbox LIVE for Achievements, PDLC, Multiplayer

Some of you get error messages that tell you that the game can’t connect to Xbox LIVE. Because of the huge additions to the game (Multiplayer and PDLC), some back-end updated on the Xbox LIVE infrastructure have not yet propagated completely to all servers.

This is also the cause for those hidden notifications for Avatar Awards (see above). Please wait 1-2 days until the Xbox LIVE servers wake up and propagate all the changes and everything should be ok. Unfortunately, this is not something that we can speed up.

What are we doing about it?

The team started working on some fixes and we’ll get a small patch in as soon as possible. Since this is a small patch, without any new content, we expect it to go through certification a LOT quicker and be release in 1-2 weeks…. But you never know what delays may appear.

Week of the Corn

This week, the Challenge of the Week will be filled with INSANE amounts of corn, corn magnets and Indestructoids to help you get that pesky ‘Hungry, Hungry Chicken‘ Achievement. I hope this will ease some of the pain you get from the other issues.

I hope to have some good news soon, and meanwhile, I hope you enjoy Chickens Can’t Fly and have a good time with it!

    I’m having a hard time unlocking this achievement called Chicken is stronger than a cat. I had over 9 lives five times, but never unlocked.

  2. William

    Still waiting for the fixe. I’ve finished the “chickens can’t fly” achievement and it still locked…

    Another chance to get a special challenge to get a lot of corns? I’ve finished the game and i’m not at 10% of the Hungry, hungry chicken! achievement…

  3. Xtramalt

    I’ve got the same problem as William, finished all levels with gold and haven’t got the achievement. Any word on update 1.2?

  4. William

    I’ve ogt an update, it unlocked the “hungry, hungry chicken” (and i’ve never collected 1 000 000 of corn) but the “chickens can’t fly” achievement stay locked!!!!!!!!

  5. Xtramalt

    Yeah, same thing happened to me. Reckon I probably had about half the corn I needed for “Hungry, hungry chicken” and I’ve done all of the standard levels on Gold. Wonder if completing Aquarium will get me the last achievement?

    Hi guys,

    For the Chickens Can’t Fly Achievement, you need to also finish the Aquarium levels (since they are free, they are considered part of the core game now).

  7. William

    I don’t want to complete the aquarium levels. They are a pain to get gold.
    It’s stupid that people who got all the gold medals before the update got this achievement, and us, who got all the gold medals after the update are stuck with a achievement saying completed at 100% and not unlocking…
    Just make an update that unlock the achievement when we got all the gold medals of the previous levels. We don’t care of completing the aquarium levels.

    Before the update, getting Gold was very difficult.
    After the update, getting Gold is much much easier, but there are more levels to play.

    So overall it’s about the same difficulty (if not easier) to get Gold after the update than it was before. With the 1.2 update that was released this weekend, the gold requirements are even easier.

    So overall, the balance is preserved.

  9. William

    I’ve got most of my gold medals with the original version, so it was difficult. And then you upated the game, i’ve got the last medals that i missed to get the achievement and… nothing happenned because of the Aquarium levels.

    So for me, it was REALLY REALLY HARD. Because i’ve played the original difficulty and now i must play the extra levels…

    It seems that the Aquarium Levels are more easier than the first time i’ve played them. Now i only need one Aquarium Gold medal to get this achievement.

    But i continue to say: IT IS NOT FAIR!

  10. Xtramalt

    Just completed the Aquarium levels and now have all the achievements. Excellent game, thanks Amused Sloth. I purchased the skin pack to celebrate and support.

    I’ll be back for Challenges now and then and I’m looking forward to your next title.

  11. GearDoGi

    In my downloadable content section in the game when i go to purchase the Dojo-lab it’s empty,there are no skins to purchase neither the lab.(playing from greece)

    P.S Are you people bringing any free lab in the future?
    Great job guys!Amazing games!!

      I don’t know why that would happen. I’ll try contacting Microsoft to see if there are any issues with DLC in Greece.

      We are currently analyzing what new addition we can make to the game in the future.

      Best regards,
      the developers
