Addicts Housekeeping Notes: Osaka Post Updates, Airplane Timer & Cleatus

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick post about a couple of changes we made/issues we’re seeing from you guys in the comments….

First on the Osaka Flu

I’ve updated the post to correct my mistake about the payouts when you level up..Now that I’ve had this (leveling up) happen to me, and leveled up, I can tell you that when you level up you’ll add an additional Osaka Virus to your town.  So you can end up with a total of 5 Osaka Viruses roaming your town…

Now on the Plane Ticket Timer..

Many of you are noting that your Timer isn’t working.  You leave the game and it doesn’t continue to count down from the 20m mark.  Instead it restarts at 20m when you go back into your game.

Of course you should contact EA with any bugs you’re experiencing in your game, you can contact them here.

But an Addicts Reader has posted a solution that’s worked for them (I also put this at the top of the Norbert post):

On kindle hard close kindle. Start again. Open tsto. Keep game open until first 20 min cycle completes. Stay in your Springfield. Keep it active . Do not visit krusty land. Do not visit neighbors. This fixed it permanently for me. Only have a Kindle to check it on though.

Although they state this works for Kindles, try it on other devices as well if you’re having a problem.  See if that helps.  If not, contact EA.

And finally on missing Cleatus…

A few of you are reporting you’ve stored him initially and he’s disappeared. I would remind you to check your entire inventory for him (not just the character section), as there are times when new characters (and items) aren’t categorized yet.

If you’ve checked your entire inventory and you still can’t find him than contact EA, you can contact them here.

And that’s it my friends.  A few notes about issues we’re seeing!

I’ll be back in a bit with some more pressing Should I Buy posts…including the returning items that are leaving our games shortly…
