Does anyone else use the Giant Bomb Roku app? I just want to know if anyone else is having problems like i am. The app will not load at all. If this is a common problem or if there is a fix i would love to know. Thanks!

Came home today and my Giant Bomb app was completely gone from my Roku. I was able to reinstall it but when I do it just crashes back to the main screen. My brother has a roku too and he's getting a connection issue when he tries to use his. Anyone else have this problem?
As a stopgap solution I'm using the Twonky app on the Roku along with Belkin Mediaplay (which uses an old version of the Twonky iOS app and still works on iOS 9) to "beam" the HD/60fps stream from the website.
Better than withdrawal. Hope they sort out whatever API shit has broken the Roku app though.
Just checked the Kodi add-on and it had the API_PATH variable set to "http://api.giantbomb.com" which no longer works.
Editing the add-on code to use "http://www.giantbomb.com/api" instead fixes it
If anyone feels like doing this, you can open up "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\addons\plugin.video.giantbomb\default.py" (or the equivalent path on another OS)
and replace the line:
API_PATH = 'http://api.giantbomb.com'
API_PATH = 'http://www.giantbomb.com/api'
I'm having the same issue on a Roku 3. It worked fine a day or two ago, and I've attempted to use it a few times today (on two different Roku 3s) and it wouldn't load and would just sit on the "loading" screen.
Luckily (or un-luckily?) I found this thread and it turns out I'm not the only one.
