It’s Easter in Springfield!

Update 7pm EDT: If you’re just downloading both the App Store update and the Easter Update at the same time the Easter update will start up first.  However, get past the initial dialogue with Ned & Homer first and then get past the Gil Dialogue and the Mystery Box questline should start up.  However, now Mr. Burns MUST be free to trigger it.  It will no longer auto start.  So make sure Mr. B is free and you should see the ! to start it.

Update: It appears this update has pulled the ability to purchase the Beach House…it’s not listed in the store.  It should be there.  Will contact EA once I leave work to see what’s going on with it.
Also, a report from a lovely Tapper, AnothrAddict, Brandine’s quest with Valentine’s Day has been skipped over.  Here’s their comment: “Heads up For those who didn’t complete the st paddys quest b/c of brandine….it skipped over her today and moved on to part 7. Yay I was waiting to end of event before I sped her birth (so weird to say) so now I can spend doughnuts on new mystery box and/or Easter stuff.” I have no way to verify this myself so if it’s working for you now please let us know.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As a special update inside an update today….EASTER HAS HIT OUR GAMES!  Ok well a mini Easter Event anyway.

2015-04-01 19.53.07

Gotta love those updates inside of updates…just when I was ready to wind my day down they pull me back in! ;)

Anywho things will get started with Flanders and some auto start dialogue.  Back with more details in a bit..just as soon as I find more Red Bull.. Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Superheros Takedown is finally in our app stores…a day late but still a welcomed sign!  This download will remove the event from our games (however the Beach House, Bart Cave & Rad Station Air Fortress will remain, until they expire in about a week, 4/7).

Note: So far this is only live on iOS.  Will update when it hits others Update is now available on all platforms

So be sure to head over to your app store and download the removal….

There is one new change to the game…a refurbished Mystery Box!  Back with more details on this in a bit (just have to verify)…

In the meantime remember to reset your Confirm Donut Spend Button once you’ve downloaded the newest version AND be sure to go into your App Settings and turn off notifications again (if you want them off).  Mine were off, but then Homer said he better put on pants so I knew they needed to go back off (not ideal chatter for the workplace ;) )

So now let’s get to those new details… Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Looks like EA has released the patch to fix many of the problems you’re experiencing with Issue 4!

So log into your game and make sure the latest update downloads.  If you don’t see it download when you start up TSTO hard close and restart your game (you should also restart your device…that always helps) that should bring the download up.

Hopefully this will help MANY of you get back into the action (and you’re not far behind at all!).

If you’re still experiencing problems after you’ve done this update, we strongly recommend that you contact EA.  Let them know what’s going on in your game, as it’s possible you may require and additional patch.

Addicts Question Corner: Issue 4, Questions & Quick Tips

Hey Howdy Hey Super Tappers!

Issue 4 is upon us and it’s a epic boss fight!  Who doesn’t love a good boss fight?  It’s the perfect ending to an awesome event!

The cool thing about Issue 4 is…it’s unlike anything we’ve seen for this event so far!  It’s completely different than the past 3 issues and it’s not frequent tapper centric!  Issue 4 is completely doable for the occasional tapper…as long as you can log onto TSTO at least a couple of times a day (to reset tasks).

So, with a whole new Issue launching you guys have TONS of questions!  And while we’re always around to answer any questions you may have in the comments I thought one central place for the most commonly asked questions (and some quick tips for the event) would benefit everyone.  So it’s time for another Addicts Question Corner!
