This is posted all over this forum and facebook, I'm surprised you haven't seen the answer. Perhaps I'll sticky it.

90% of the time, this is because you either have less than three exodrones, or have three but you have at least one unlocked slot empty. If you have a free slot right now, you need to create a drone in it, even if you don't plan to use it. You also must have at least three exodrones.

We have this fixed in a patch, but patches are slow in XBLIG and take quite a bit of time to get out.

Come to think of it...I had that same problem as one point. I ended up deleting my save game (XNA Developers->Xenominer Swarm...etc etc) and redownloading Swarm (didn't mind anyways because I blew a lot of the initial credits puffing up my drones...only to have no $$$ to repair them when they were dead ). I had the Code 4 error on every menu selection I tried as well.

Can't remember if I tried the Options or not honestly. I did have only two drones (as I was trying to sell off drones to make money to repair my beefed up dead Engineer.

The game doesn't run in French, it only runs in English, you'll have to set your console to English. That is probably you and your friends' problem.

Otherwise yes you need 3 or more drones. If you can't edit your drones AND you are running English on your console, you'll need to delete your save game. This is under System Settings, Storage, Games, XNA Developer, Xenominer Swarm. Delete Xenominer Swarm. Then uninstall the game.

When you redownload it you will have a fresh copy and should be able to play.

We are fixing this, as we've mentioned several times. We have a patch in test right now.

Understood. Just relating any "new" tidbits you might find with my post. As a software developer myself...any little bit of info to really track down a bug to completely kill it helps. Keep up the good work guys...this new Swarm is a great piece of work already!!!

If the game langage is english (or in japan) a french console user can play a game... This is not a problem normaly. Many game are in other langage. I have turn my console in english with region scall to united-kingdom and the game grash again. Its not the problem.

Thank for your game (i love Xenominer !) but 4 Swarm i must be patient....
Good luck

For Xenominer, DownGate, Xenominer Swarm, and most other indie games if not all to work you need to have your console set to

Language: English
Locale: United States

XNA Games (All Indie Games) Can only be Reviewed in English

Their Market according to the way Microsoft Handles it seems to only be focused according to those settings for Indies...

It mainly has to do with Numbers being displayed differently between countries and characters of the alphabet. Like 5,000 and 5000 from what I understand.

Code is apparently finicky that way :P
