Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Back with another edition of Addicts Question Corner, this time addressing your Act 2 concerns.
This post is based around the most common questions we’re seeing asked in the comments. And it’s designed to help you understand the event a little bit better..or at the very least make you feel like you’re not going crazy with an issue you’re having. So…if you’re stuck somewhere, seeing something strange or just not sure what’s going on read this post first. If you don’t see the help then ask your question. I’m going to try and address every major question we’re seeing in this one post. So hopefully this will help those that are still stuck/confused out.
Let’s get to it…
First let me start by saying…we’ve got two other Question Corner posts written for Act One. So if you don’t see your problem addressed here, check those posts out first…there’s a good chance it was covered there. They can be found here and here
Now let’s start with the number one question we’ve been seeing in the comments for the last day….
My Characters Look “Cloudy/Pixelated” outside of Moe’s/Simpson House/Kwik-E-Mart/Krusty Burger. What’s wrong with my game? Is it Broken?
No. I promise. Your game is NOT broken. This is intentional. It’s part of the animation for the action at that location, it’s meant to look like the adults are doing something..well…”adult”. So if you see these images:
Relax…your game’s not broken. It’s working as it’s supposed to.
If I Buy Luann, will I get her Squirrel Costume for Free?
No. As of this very moment, there is no Squirrel Costume in the game. That look from this image…
Is part of the task associated with Everscream Terrors and will leave once the event is over. So yes, you can see this task if you buy Luann, but no you won’t get a free costume for her.
Fairy Kodos is Stuck on the Flirt Task, How Do I Fix This?
We’re seeing this one a bit in the comments. Readers have advised that it has to do with the Facade on the Simpson’s House. If it’s set to Everscream Terrors you can’t clear it. So what you’ll need to do is tap on Everscream Terros and chance the Facade back to the Simpson’s House. That should allow you to clear the task…
I’ve Completed Parts 1 and 2 of The Very Young Folk, But I Still Can’t Get The Springfield Horror to Start. All of My Characters Are Free.
Make sure you’ve completed EVERYTHING associated with the main questline for Act 1…including the last task that pops up for Homer titled The Unspeakable. We’re seeing readers with this issue, but then realizing that they didn’t complete that one task. Once it’s completed you can move onto The Springfield Horror. (It’s an 8hr task for Homer to Wait Impatiently)
I Can’t Get the Facades To Go On My Kwik-E-Mart or Krusty Burger.
We’re seeing this popup a bit now too. Often it’s related to having too many Kwik-E-Marts or Krusty Burgers in your town. What we suggest doing is store or sell all the Kwik-E-Marts and Krusty Burgers you have and then place only 1, the one that’s associated with the character. That should trigger the Facade to come up.
If you only have 1 Kwik-E-Mart or Krusty Burger…store/sell it and see if that triggers it to work.
If it doesn’t, contact EA.
I’m Tapping Nightmares But My Level Up Meter Isn’t Rising.
First, make sure you’re tapping the correct nightmare. I know some of you are still having trouble with this. We’ve got loads of details on how to upgrade on this post.
If you’re familiar with the upgrade process and haven’t had any issues so far….I think this is a glitch. I honestly can’t duplicate it in my game. I’m collecting snakes, and everyone I tap causes my snake counter to rise. I would say try a hard close/visit to Krustyland/visit to a neighbor to try and resync your game and see if that helps it (i usually hard close out of my game when I exit). If it doesn’t, then I’d contact EA.
Why am I Not Earning Gummies from Neighbors?
Because, just like s’mores, you won’t earn prize currency from neighbors. Only crafting currency.
If you’re wondering why you’re not getting crafting currency from neighbors…it’s probably because you’ve maxed out your neighbor actions for the day. Remember you only get 90/day. More details on neighbor actions on this post.
When Does Act 2 End?
Act 2 ends on November 4th at 0800GMT (3am EDT…Daylight Savings Ends in the US on Nov. 1st)
Will My Gummies Still Be There When Act 2 Ends?
No. Once Act 2 ends your Gummies will disappear and any prizes you have not yet earned will be available for purchase via donuts only.
Will You be Doing A ________ Post?
As always, lots of posts are still coming. Just trying to focus on addressing the issues/questions we’re seeing in the comments most often first. Then we’ll jump on more specific posts (like Should I Buys etc). Lots more coming…I promise.
And, I believe, that my friends covers most of the common questions we’re seeing in the comments.
Anything you’re still confused on? Anything you didn’t see ask that you would have asked? This clear things up for you? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
P.S. Happy Back to the Future Day… 10.21.15. We’re officially in the future! Where’s my hoverboard? 😉
