When I either complete a challenge or view the leader boards the game crashes.
Am I the only one experiencing this?

No this is a known issue, but Nicalis hasn't done anything to indicate that they're going to fix it anytime soon.

It's been around for over a year, ever since the leaderboards have gone public in CS+. Anyone who's played the challenges should be aware of this.

They're never going to fix it, are they?

Wait that's a bug? I always thought the game autoclosing after a challenge was intentional.
Yeah thats a bug, I know because it never happened back when I was beta-testing the leader boards. That and a game should never autoclose by crashing/popping up the dialogue "Cave Story+.exe has stopped working...".

Probably not.

Hopefully this will get fixed, but I doubt they will.

How strange because I never got a popup that indicated that Cave Story+ has stopped working. It would simply close out, thus why I thought it was intentional. It would have been counterintuitive to suddenly close out of a game after completing a challenge though.

This bug has been around for a long time... Chances are, it'll never get patched as Nicalis was/is/are working on newer projects.
Funny thing is, if you finish Nemesis Challenge, the end screen there is bugged. The small island is gone, and you kinda just fall. (The game closes out afterwards)

I think part of the reason why this might be a lesser known issue is that to see it you actually have to beat one of the challenges, which isn't easy for most casual players.

The problem does not occur on the DRM-Free Humble Bundle version, so it probably has something to do with submitting a score. I still doubt Nicalis will fix it, though.

That also explains why I didn't know about it. I play CS+ with the HiB version.

Is the leaderboard a Steam-only thing?

I think so, yeah. Steam is the only one that actually receives updates, as far as I know.

Could someone buy me the Steam version? ;) I'd be interested in trying to figure this out...

The Humble Bundle version received updates as well.

I suspect that the leaderboard, like achievements, is dependent on the Steam platform.

This happens with me too, but that's not my only issue... If I play Wind Fortress, the background doesn't work for some reason, it just appears black.

I never had this problem. Then again, I manually activated all of the challenges without meeting the requirements, so...
