So there’s another update in the App Store for iOS only. (at least I believe it’s iOS only, I see nothing in Android) This update SHOULD fix the missing game issue if you were playing anonymously. However, it’s only going to fix the issue if you haven’t updated yet. If you’ve already lost your game, I believe it’s gone. You can still try to contact EA, but I do think it’s gone.
HOWEVER…if you’ve lost your game there is an alternate solution…there’s a great post on Reddit by Addicts reader skitch…it’s step by step instructions on how to restore your game if you played anonymously and had an Apple Backup. Check it out here
Also..please, please, PLEASE take this as a warning (whether you play on iOS or Android) and create an EA/Origin account if you haven’t already done so. Don’t risk this happening again. Creating an account helps prevent issues with your game should you need to uninstall TSTO on your device to correct an issue. It also prevents your down from completely disappearing…not only from issues like what happened yesterday, but also if something happens to your phone/device. Also, creating an account allows you to add friends in TSTO as well as play your game across different devices.
I know there are some of you who don’t want to create an account because you don’t “trust” EA with your info. Honestly all you need to create an account is an email address, that’s it. So if you have “trust” issues, make an email address to use just for TSTO and don’t use your real name for it. That way your personal info stays private and your game is backed up.
For those of you that don’t know how to create the account, I’ll be updating this post with instructions on how to create the EA/Origin account..I just need to grab some screenshots. So give me a bit and you’ll see step by step instructions on how to do so. 🙂
Ok guys…how to create an account info is detailed below..
Are you feeling lucky? It’s time to roll the dice cause mama needs a new pair of shoes…as the new Casino update hits our TSTO games!
The update arrived yesterday afternoon and, as with all events, a new questline has lanched to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes. As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 of this event runs until March 7th…when Act 2 will start.
Remember, the questline is there to guide you. So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly (ie neighbor actions, gamblers to tap, crafting etc). Just look for the Gold Token Icon in your task bar. Any tasks you see associated with that icon are related to the event. So, if you’re stuck…keep going until you no longer see that token.
So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what you need to do to build your own mini Vegas in your pocket-sized Springfield…
Do you know when to hold them, when to fold them, when to walk away, when to run? Do you ever count your money when you’re sitting at the table? WELL KNOCK IT OFF! PAY ATTENTION TO MY POST! Sheesh! 😛
I wasn’t joking when I said EA was going to drop something for us to “toss/throw our money at” or for DaPimp… scantily clad women to serve him free drinks. They even had a pop up for it. You’re welcome DaPimp!
IT’S CALENDAR TIME!! (Hi, Sandra & Big Phil. Tracy… I am watching you o.O )
