Feel silly that I sat so long on trying this game. This really felt great to play! Wish it would have a little more to the reeling portion (like tension or what not) but for a playable early Playdate game this was rad! 

The download named "Fishing Simulator v1.1.0.zip" still shows as v1.0.0 in the sideloader, in Settings>Games on the device, and in the About page in the game.

Forgot to change in the pdxinfo, thanks !

Hello! Getting this error when I try to sideload the game on the Playdate site:

It's a error from me, in the next update, I'm really sorry :(

Looking forward to playing it. :)

Same error for me as well.

Not sure if this is the problem you are having, but I was having this same issue sideloading my zipped game as well.

I was using the windows built in zipping utility and it wouldn't sideload properly.

I re-zipped it with 7zip and it sideloaded normally, not sure why but it fixed the issue for my game.

I'm getting the same error

Update: I unzipped and sideloaded the PDX file and was able to download that on the device.

Hey the game won't sideload since its a .rar. Game needs to be a .zip to sideload

Have you unzipped it and used the PDX file in the archive ?

Yeah I extract the pdx and turn it into a zip. I'm able to sideload it like normal but then when i go to install it on the playdate, it fully installs and then says there was a download error.

That's weird... I don't have a PlayDate so I cannot test but is it working for others games ?

Yes i'm able to get most of the other games i've downloaded working

Huh? I just extracted the rar file and it gives me the pdx file. I can open that normally with the Playdate Simulator

Btw, if I pull up the hook again (without any fish on the hook) just after let it go down, the Playdate Simulator gives an error on this:

scenes/game.lua:301: attempt to index a nil value (field 'fish')
stack traceback:
scenes/game.lua:301: in field 'timerEndedCallback'
CoreLibs/timer.lua:292: in local 'callEndedCallback'
CoreLibs/timer.lua:334: in field 'updateTimers'
sceneManager.lua:50: in method 'update'
main.lua:33: in function <main.lua:29>

Thanks for the report ! Next update :)

When I extract the pdx from the rar and try to sideload the game, the sideload page tells me its "not a zip file".

Then I try putting it in a zip file, it allows me to sideload, but then thats when i have my download problem on my console

I will try to make it a .zip file in the next update
