Just wanted to get some info out about a possible glitch that could effect every one’s gameplay.
Even though I’ve been playing since last Halloween and been very fortunate to have only minor glitches so far, I’ve had a pretty serious one during this update.
Homer is missing!
Yesterday I sent Homer on his 12 hour Halloween task. I laughed as he grew bigger to eat ghosts and then took off PACMAN-style eating donuts. While I followed Homie to get screenshots, I watched as he continued off my game screen off into the deep blue sea. No worries right?
I didn’t think anything of it until Homer wasn’t in my town today. Of course, I thought I was SMRTER than him and tried to find him by setting new tasks but apparently, he is trapped in the twilight zone under the water to the bottom left of my town. I can see his yellow thumbs up briefly on a green background.
All the usual glitch fixes have not worked and I have an e-mail in with EA to see if it can be fixed. Just wanted to make sure I got this info out to all you dedicated Ghostbusting Addicts. If you’ve had success with the task in your town, I would not panic. This glitch may just be isolated to the Wookiee but I would feel terrible if I didn’t use my soap box to let y’all know, especially since so many game tasks require the big guy.
As soon as I know the fix, I will let you know. True moral of the story is to not freak about glitches. They work themselves out and it is really only a game. Sometimes they are even hilarious.
If you want to be on the safe side, be careful of Homer’s 12 hour Halloweeny task. TTFN Addicts… Wookiee out!
UPDATE 3 OCT 13 @ 2219 PST
I have been in contact with EA and they stated they are aware of this problem. Some people’s characters have been disappearing when they do their Halloween tasks. Provided it is not Homer or Lisa, the quick fix is to store the building they came with. I did this for Martin (The Springfield Library) and he reappeared. As a bonus, EA gave me 17 donuts so I would recommend letting EA know of any big glitches you may have. Happy tapping and I hope your game is glitch free!
