    cfullerNY, have you considered using the built in 'display leader board' function until this issue is fixed? I believe if you check 'show leader board' in the properties you will get your own built-in leaderboard in the style of the High Score object.

    Thanks for the suggestion Distant J, but the orientation issue also affects displaying the Game Center achievements.

    I know you could say "well why not make your own achievement display system too" but Apple are known to give more love to apps that support Game Center, so I want to have the best chance I can possibly have of being featured in new and noteworthy.

    Also, by launching without Game Center, my game would not be featured in the Game Center compatible games section of itunes store or the 'find game center games' section within the game center app.

    True, but remember that when you submit an update you shoot back up to the top of the new releases, if you add gamecenter and then update it will appear in that list...

    I'm adding gamecenter into an app too now so I can appreciate your frustration, I'm sure it won't be long though.

    We'll find the source of this problem soon. But if you want a version sooner, yes, you could use the Game Center Achievement (no S) object to display the achievements. It is very simple to use, and it does work.

    Andos is not present this week. He will be next week, and he will work on this problem then.

    After trying many different ways of fixing this it appears that that Apple simply didn't design the leaderboards to be overly orientation-changing-friendly.

    All my attempts have 'sorta' worked but always had a major downside - for example only sorta working properly on either iPhone or iPad (never both).
    The overlay controls that GameCenter displays drift around as if it can't decide which orientation to chose and which position to end up in when it animates out of view again.

    We follow some strict coding guidelines on how to determine the application rotation: we specifically tell iOS not to do any automatic rotation as we handle all that ourselves. GameCenter does not seem to care of this.

    I don't know what we can do about this for the time being sorry. I will send a support ticket to Apple on this matter for more in-depth understanding of their design choices of this.

    A google search reveals that it seems to be a common problem.
