Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we got ourselves a little in-game update going on…
Milhouse kicks it off…
Looks like this is an episode-tie in my friends. For this Sunday’s Season Finale of The Simpsons! (Yellow Badge of Cowardage).
UPDATE: Ok so it looks like, from the files anyway, they attempted to fix the lagging issue (the file is a “hotfix”. Some are reporting their games are still lagging. On my Tablet, at least, i’m not noticing the lag anymore. BUT I will check out my phone and iPad here shortly.
For those that were locked out, can you get in now? Or are you still getting the spinning donut of death?
Note on Friendship Points: It looks like they’re not working (as in I’m not being awarded any at the moment). BEST thing to do in this situation…is contact EA, using the same methods in the Lag post. The more people that let them know there’s an issue the more they’ll be on it. I will be contacting them myself here shortly…..
IF you are at a lower FP level (still working towards Goofball or lower) let us know if your FP’s are working for you.
New skin, new Friendship Prize (!) & a new premium item. As always more details below the fold for those who don’t like Spoilers!
As I said above Milhouse kicks it off with some dialogue and then a 6hr task…here are the details for the initial in-game dialogue:
Milhouse FTW! Pt. 1
Homer: Hey, it’s what’s-his-name….Glasses McBluehair?
Milhouse: No, Mr. Simpson. My name is–
Homer: Wait, don’t tell me! I totally know you — you’re Lisa’s boyfriend, or girlfriend, or something. Uhhh….Martin?
Milhouse: No, close though.
Homer: Okay, think, Homer. Not Nelson, because he’s cool. God, I wish I was Nelson. Okay, gotta focus….close to Martin…Comic Book Guy?
Milhouse: That’s not a good guess at all.
Homer: Principal Skinner? Duffman? Lard Lad? The Kwik-E-Mart?
Milhouse: My last name is Van Houten.
Are you sure I know you?
Lenny: Hey Homer! Whatcha doin’?
Homer: Just messing with Milhouse to cheer him up. He seemed kind of down.
Carl: Sorry to hear that. What’s up kid? Did future Lisa future divorce future you again?
Milhouse: No, field day is coming up at school and I’ve already go a closet full of last-place trophies in one of those. I don’t know what to do
Lenny: You could rent a storage unit!
Carl: Yea, I bet you could fit a crapload of last-place trophies in one of those.
Lenny: It’s fun solving people’s problems!
Homer: I think Milhouse actually wants to NOT lose.
Lenny: Oh, like win? That’s super-hard.
Carl: I’d seriously give the storage unit some thought.
Homer: Come on, guys – let’s help him win!
Milhouse: Do you guys actually know anything about fitness?
Homer: I know “feel the burn” is a thing. And there’s something called cardio, which is either good or bad. Also electrolytes, maybe?
Carl: Listen to Professor Jack Lalanne over here!
Milhouse: Maybe I should just look up fitness on the internet.
Carl: The inter-what-now?
Milhouse: The internet. It’s where I learned about the civil war, dinosaurs, my parent’s getting divorce, my parents getting back together…the tidal wave approaching Springfield, the assassination of Trotsky–
Homer: They assassinated Trotsky?!
Lenny: There were dinosaurs?!
Milhouse: I’m going to go do an internet search for “rock-hard male bodies”
Carl: Just make sure safe search is on with that one.

More to come on his quest line later…
Keep Homer available for Part 2 as he kicks it off, then Milhouse does the 4hr task that will result in the pop up to get his new skin. Once placed on, he will start Part 3 for 12hrs.
That’s it for the new stuff at the moment my friends. Will be back with the full walkthrough and more details a little later on today!
