Tried to read disconnected from internet

Post by shadowdragon » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:03 pm

I disconnected from the internet and then opened the ereader, which says that I should be able to read downloaded content. It says, "Downloaded issues - Click an image to view. (Offline content currently only available)". However, if I click on either the v2.0 rules or the "Rise of Rome" nothing happens.

I surely hope that I can read downloaded FoG digital books without being connected to internet!

I am seeing the same behavior with my down loaded version of the rules. I haven't bought Rise of Rome yet so it does not appear at all when I'm off line.

I did the uninstall the software/books, uninstall security software, reboot, reinstall the software/books, reinstall security software to get my v2.0 rules to load, but I still cannot read books off-line. A pretty severe limitation for PC's if you need internet connection to read downloaded books. I wonder if iPad's have the same problem if not connected to wifi.

An interesting question - so I turned off the WiFi and put my iPad into Airplane mode so that there is no internet connection of any sort. Starting the App I get an alert saying "Error updating library, an internet connection is required"; however, going past this by hitting "OK" I am able to read the rules OK. I assume it looks for the connection to see if there are any updates.

The alert didn't show up on my PC version....so there was no "ok" to hit. Perhaps I need to run it with the security software uninstalled. :wink:

Both the iPad and desktop versions need an internet connection to check if there are updates to the already published rules and any new companion guides.

However, the desktop version should allow offline reading.

We will look into to this and get back to you as soon as possible,

Thanks

If you update it should fix this problem? This was a bug in the initial release.

I downloaded not that long ago, end of november so it was not bought as an early release and I downloaded the latest Ereader . I tried also this : I first connected via internet, openned the book then closed internet and tried to read . That works . But If I quit the book I cannot reopen it if I am not connected to internet . So to read it I must first have a conncection .

Can you check again you have downloaded this:

This was a bug that was fixed so it must be that you don't have the latest version.
