    Default Crashing games

    I've been noticing a lot of side-loaded games not working from Good E-Reader. In particular:

    -Sims FreePlay: Hangs at EA logo
    -Rift: Can't connect to server
    -Rock The Vegas: Crashes after title screen load
    -Tribez

    Anyone else having trouble with any of these? I've tried resetting the PlayBook, developper mode on and off, wi-fi on and off (obviously stops some games from working), pretending that I don't actually want to play the game... Nada.

    All my games (Solitaire etc) just got slow. Only change is that I added about 20Gig of movies. I deleted all the movies with no change. I deleted all sideloaded bames and its a bit faster. I had just wiped my playbook 2 weeks ago!

    Yeah, that didn't work, but thanks.

    I have other side-loaded apps that work fine. Could it be a sound or internet thing wuth the android player? I watched my free memory, and that doesn't seem to be an issue. I know The Sims FreePlay has NEVER worked on my PlayBook. I've tried it a few times since May, always downloading a fresh version of it.

    Redownloaded Tribez, Crime City, Paradise Island and Rock The Vegas with my PlayBookl transferring the bars to my laptop for sideloading. Crime City works, the other three don't, crashing after the load screen or developer screen. Any theories? Has this happened to anyone but me?

    Well, scratch that, Crime City started getting sluggish, then crashed at level 5, and now can't get past the load screen. I'll assume there's sometjing wrong with my android player, and that the only way to fix that would be to perform a factory reset.

    Well, I'm about three hours into a security wipe/factory reset/reinstallation process. Currently reinstalling all my apps, some of which, sadly, have changed price on me, and want me to repay.

    I'll check the sideloaded app issue once all that's done.

    Well, after all that, nada. The sideloaded apps still don't work. When I let my desktop manager refactorize my PlayBook, it told me that it had received warnings in the process. Nothing more specific than that though.
