UPDATE 830PM EST: A simple & quick update hit. Hoping it helps those locked out from Daily Reward issue. Let me know.
Hey there Screamereenos!
Bouncing by with some Clarification and help to all the Q&A that keeps repeating in the Comments. Most was already answered in the Main Posts, but I will place them here too to have one point of information.
So take a peek at ALL the info below before asking, and see if it is already answered. 🙂
Yes, this has been disabled and most likely will be for the Event. I assume so it will not interfere with the Event Tasks. So don’t anticipate using it anytime soon unless EA finds an alternate way to put it back into play for the Event.
Many of you think you are missing S’mores, you are not. There is a very simple explanation to this. You are seeing TWO S’mores Counters.
Main S’mores Counter: This is what you will see as the OVERALL TOTAL of S’mores you have collected so far for Act 1. Lower Left Corner of your game above your XP Meter.
Individual S’mores Counter: So that you are aware of how many S’mores you need per prize, there is an Individual Counter that will show as you reach each and every Prize in the Act 1 Screen.
Crafting Resources: /180
Spooky Cabin: /360
Pirate Kang: /1620
Model Donut: /2880
Gate to Nowhere: /4230
Now total them up… 180+360+1620+2880+4230 = 9270. The EXACT amount you need for Act 1… Act 1 Calendar HERE.
You are NOT missing any. No worries. Just a way to help you see where you are on earning each item. Nothing more.
SPAWNS NOT ADDING TO CAMPFIRE UPGRADE
This one is a tricky one, but I want to do a quick breakdown on it. First let’s take a quick look at the Basics.
WHAT Nightmare is the Portal Needing? : Look at the Counter on the Upgrade Screen and see WHAT Nightmare Image is next to it. Then make sure you have the Kid tell a Story that triggers that Nightmare to come from the Campfire. You can see in the image below… it asks for the Zombie Nightmare and has a Zombie Icon next to the Counter.
Check for that Icon and see WHAT it matches…
In short, as you go through the Questline watch the pop up on the Campfire, if the Kid Story swapped the Nightmare to something else… make the appropriate Kid tell their story again to swap it back to WHAT Nightmare you need. It is instant.
GAME LOCKED OUT
I am seeing an influx of reports on the Daily Prizes Pop Up causing an issue in Players games.
Basically you get the Daily Pop Up for coming back to the game for 5 days in a row, for some reason it allows you to collect twice. DO NOT COLLECT TWICE!!
If you have already and are locked up, light up the EA Forum and also contact EA for help.
DAILY NEIGHBOR MAX
Just as with previous Events, you will only get payouts for so many Event Neighbors and then the Event Payouts stop and just Cash & XP return.
I am currently working on this and all the Neighbor Visit info in another post, for now know that if you are hitting Cash & XP… you’re MAXED for the day.
If you don’t see anything to tap in a town, it is a good chance they are not fully updated yet and ready for you… so skip them for now and give them a few days to fully update. Check also Main Neighbor Screen. See where their counters are. That may be a good indication.
LOTS more Neighbor info coming.
I am still working on this one and will Update when I can. There is usually a MAX amount of Nightmares you can have wandering your game at one time. I am verifying it with a few tests in my game, once complete I will let you know the exacts.
The game is requiring those that already have it to craft another Spooky House for the Questline. I hope this is an oops and will be fixed. If not, we still need to let EA know to fix it so we dont wast resources we already went through last year’s Event.
CRASHING AND LAGGING
Another High Impact Event is upon us… that means MAJOR RAM drain for most devices. Help your device handle it all.
Here is our list of Basic Tips to try…
Memory Drain. It is a big issue in highly outside animated Events. This is why keeping 4500 items in game helps among other things. Help your device when this hits really hard, like this Event.
- Disable Monorail. If you played last Event… Pull the track pieces away from the station to prevent it from moving around your game or when Neighbors Visit.
- If this happens while Neighbor tapping… see if it is ONE Neighbor crashing or specific ones, they may be having issues getting in too. So “hide” them and don’t visit them until they can fix it or replace them if concerned about your game play.
- Store NPC’S and any other animated items not in use.
- Don’t push the 4500 limit. If you do, expect the game to slow and more “texture” glitches to name a few things
- Keep non essential Characters on indoor tasks or store them in your inventory.
- Play ONLY this App. In other words kill all other Apps that are running BEFORE launching this one. Anything in the background while this is going (Facebook, SnapChat, Twitter, etc) will take Memory away from the app as they fight over the availability.
- Give it space, LOTS of space. Like 2-3GB of empty space on your device. Insane I know, but highly active Events take a lot and so do the game files.
- Run on highest stable internet connection as possible. WiFi usually works best, and also doesn’t wipe out your Data Plan
Remember, if you are having trouble getting in your game… so might your neighbors. Memory Drain impacts more than just you. So help you and your Neighbors or they may not visit if your town crashes their game each time.
Outside of that. EA knows how big this one is pulling on the Memory Drain. Hopefully they can make some cuts to help combat it too. Until then, try the tips to see if it helps. In the meantime, keep reporting to EA the Crash Issues.
In short, check the site to see if it is a known issue, ask for help if you need it and we will do what we can, outside of that… try the Basic Troubleshooting and reach out to EA if needed.
