People attempting to play Theatrhythm Remaining Bar Line-a Remaining Fantasy-themed rhythm sport—have been unable to resulting from a bug stopping the sport from connecting to servers on February 29, aka a Leap Day. An identical bug occurred in an EA racing sport, too, forcing gamers to alter the date on their consoles to play.

In case you didn’t know: Immediately—Thursday, February 29—is a Leap Day. An additional day of the 12 months that solely occurs as soon as (virtually) each 4 years. Usually, Leap Days aren’t that thrilling. However typically computer systems and software program bug out due to the additional day, particularly if the builders or programmers didn’t account for the additional day. It occurs each Leap Yr, as documented on-line by of us. This 12 months, for instance, some gasoline pumps in New Zealand stopped working and a few apps broke on telephones. And for some of us attempting to play video video games that connect with servers, issues stopped working at the moment, too.

As first spotted by Twitter consumer @Regulus_Tera on February 29, a consumer on the Theatrhythm subreddit requested others if their save file was corrupted as their sport was booting up correctly. Nonetheless, they later edited the publish and defined that they fastened the issue by altering the date of their console.

“Edit: An answer has been discovered, for some purpose the sport can’t work on February twenty ninth, presumably tied to leap years, and as such it’ll black display perpetually till you alter the clock again to the twenty eighth, and presumably any date after the twenty ninth too.

As soon as the date [is] modified the sport will return to operating completely nice once more.”

Different PS4 and Swap gamers replied with related affirmation that the bug was actual and that this resolution labored. Technically, the sport wasn’t utterly damaged as you’ll be able to play offline, but it surely was a foolish state of affairs attributable to the Leap Day and one which Sq. Enix may have most likely averted.

Elsewhere, EA’s WRC--a rallying racing sport developed by Codemasters—can be affected by a Leap Day bug. Gamers on each Xbox and PlayStation reported that every time they booted up the sport it crashed. This downside is as a result of Leap Yr and was confirmed by the official EA help account on Twitter, which posted earlier today some steps to get across the bug. These steps? Change your console clock to skip over the additional day.

Whereas some may giggle and roll their eyes in any respect this, I do fear that as extra video games and companies are linked to and rely on the web, most of these “foolish” bugs may turn out to be extra painful and harmful. I can’t anticipate my AC sooner or later to cease working as a result of Amazon—the one firm on the earth at that time—forgot to account for February 29.
