Hey Howdy Hey Stonecutters!
Just a quick post about a few new glitches that are being reported. Our awesome readers have been reporting them and some fixes, so we wanted to keep you up to date so you know what to do….if it happens to you!
Check out some of the newest glitchs impacting TSTO, and what you can do to fix them below the fold…
Glitch #1: Game is Locked Out
Issue: A few players are reporting that they’re completely locked out of their game. All they get is the spinning donut, and can’t log in.
Resolution: EA is working on a fix for this. In the meantime your best bet is to make sure you report your game locked out to EA to let them know. The reasoning for this is because, as we saw with those locked out during the YBOC Event, if you report it and end up missing out on items because of EA’s screw up (Lock out or issue with your game), they’re more likely do replace what they caused you to miss out on. So make sure you report issues to EA. You can check out how to Contact them via this post: Contact EA
Special thanks to reader Jeremy who shared what EA told him about the lock out with us: “I’ve been locked out of the game for a week now and finally received confirmation from EA as to why. Apparently, this is a large problem, with many users affected (game crashes when attempting log in) and they are trying to push an update soon to address the issue. I was told to be patient and the issue would be resolved soon. Just thought I would let some of you know who might be locked out as well.”
Glitch #2: Burns and the Money Pool
Issue: When you win the Money Pool and Stonecutter Burns a glitch occurs that causes the “You’ve Unlocked…” to keep popping up. Here’s a post from our friend Floozy_bot explaining what happens: “I unlocked the Money Pool yesterday at 14k emblems (along with possibly the BEST animated task in the game!?), but now every time I enter the game or even visit Krustyland I keep getting the message that pops up when you first receive the Money Pool.
This would be great if it wasn’t a unique item as I’d keep getting them (I got two of the Sacred Chests with the same glitch) but now my prize board is still showing the money pool as the current (greyed out) prize despite having over 15,500 emblems.
I’ve tried storing the pool, exiting the game and coming back in to try and make the game think I’ve just received the pool but it makes no difference :(“
Resolution: The good news is their appears to be a fix for this! Again I’ll turn it over to Floozy_bot who figured out the fix: “Hi again, I have a fix! I did a bit of searching and found another user with the same issue.
All you need to do is visit a neighbour (or two). On visiting the first the same reward message will appear, but on the second it doesn’t. When I returned to my town the emblems were correctly counting towards the next prize, phew!
Bizarrely I do now have a spare pool in my inventory, but the game won’t let me place it, gutted! :)”
Special thanks to Floozy for figuring out the fix, and letting us know! 🙂
Glitch #3: Neighbor Emblems
Issue: Not receiving ANY emblems from visiting neighbors.
UPDATE: Yes, we know…ONLY the first 60 actions of visiting friends will accumulate emblems. However, players are reporting not getting any emblems while visiting friends…even when they’ve gone days with out visiting them.
Resolution: Check to make sure ALL of your friend actions are open, ie every neighbor shows the 3 open actions over their town. Next check to make sure you’re tapping on cameras in friend’s towns, not the usual money signs. If they’re all open, they show cameras and you’re still not receiving emblems Contact EA. It may be a specific glitch with YOUR Springfield that needs to be fixed.
