2018 Treehouse of Horror Bug Roundup

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So one constant we’re seeing in the comments with this event is that a number of you are seeing a variety of glitches appear in your game.  So I’m providing you with one post that displays the most common glitches, so that you’re able to see if others are experiencing it too.  Also, this is a place where you can post a glitch you’re seeing with this event that may not be posted.

This gives us one place so it’s all neat and we’re not throwing glitch reports into every other post written.  So here we go, the most common bugs we’re seeing appear in the comments…

Let’s first start by saying, 99.9% of these bugs cannot be fixed by us suggesting something.  You will have to contact EA, which you can do so HERE, so that they can patch the game.

Now here’s the list…

-Lag.  Yes, the game has TERRIBLE lag right now when collecting income from buildings.

-THOH Store disappearing.  We’re seeing reports from players that the Treehouse of Horror section of their store has completely disappeared.

-Flanders Tome levels are resetting back to level 1.  We’re seeing reports from players that their Tome was a higher level and suddenly it’s reset back to level 1.

-Freezing when visiting neighbors.  Seeing reports of games freezing when you’re visiting neighbors and tapping their minions.

-Freezing when playing the dig site.  Ok, this one can be fixed.  If this happens just hard close your game and it should restore itself.

And I think that covers all of the major ones we’re seeing you guys report.

Again, if you’re experiencing one of these bugs, please contact EA.

If you’re experiencing a bug not listed here please share what you’re seeing in the comments below.

  1. Crazy bug for me, maybe I’m doing something wrong. I have two towns. I’ve leveled up in crafting to level 5, and I’ve already achieved the “Haunted Crossroads” prize in both towns. But the crafting option has only unlocked in one town, even though the locked town’s caption still reads “Reach level 4 in crafting and unlock the Haunted Crossroads from Act 2 prizes.” What more do I need to do for this to unlock in my second town? I myself am flummoxed!🤪

  2. Almost all my characters are stuck on he “be unimpressed” quest, everytime I tap on the they exit the brown house, the money and xp collects but the characters all go straight back into the house and start another 8 hour cycle for the mission.
    Dont get me wrong the money and xp farming is nice but it’s a pain not being able to do anything else with them

  3. My level 4 crafting is locked too even though I reached level 4. I uninstalled and reinstalled and restarted my android tablet – still no luck.

  4. I have one monster minion that I can’t tap. All the others are tappable, but this one seems to be stuck as a minion and will not change. Seems like a small problem, but when I use the method of using th crafting screen and clicking on the upper right button that tells me how many incantations I need for the next crafting level, it always takes me to that one minion who won’t change. Still a small problem, but bugs me.

    • Actually just solved that problem. It turns out that Fat Tony was the minion, and I used the furniture store to set him on a task, so he was simultaneously doing a task at the furniture store and walking around as a minion. I found this out when I tapped a minion (evil Homer) within the tap radius of this untappable minion, and he turned into Fat Tony. Now all minions are tappable.

  7. So I had the terrible lagging/freezing issue with the event and I managed to fix it. It turns out that my NPC Evil Homer was getting turned into a tappable vampire and every time he was freed, it froze up my game. I deposited Evil Homer in my inventory and -VOILA- no more lagging!

    • Evil Homer is totally broken in iOS version. I can’t even click on him most times and when I can it just shows a single line with the exit arrow. He’ll just randomly pop up in the corner as available but then go back to broken. I guess I’ll try to corner him and put him in inventory to see if it helps. Lol EA. Did you have a turnover in devs?

      • finally cornered Evil Home and first try to get him into inventory hard crashed the game. Second try I was able to get him into the inv and now my game works a LOT more smoothly. Lost all of the lag and the minions/chars seems to work 100% better. Excelsior!

  12. My glitch is the spooky shrubs won’t unlock for crafting. I’ve placed them (and stored and re-placed them), gotten completely through the prize track, and can craft everything from this act, except for the shrubs. Weird.

    I’ll be contacting EA about it. I know it’s not an uncommon glitch. I’ve seen several people here and on Reddit mention it.

    • I don’t know if this is the case for you, but I have noticed that if a character has been converted to a minion by Elvira (or whoever the vampiress is), they won’t get assigned a task from the UE until you “exorcise” them.

  26. I am suffering the terrible lag as well. Also, my game doesn’t reset. When I tap on a character to clear their tasks, I collect the money, but the task doesn’t reset. Effectively, I cannot send my characters on new tasks. The bonus is that I am accumulating a ton of in game currency 🤷‍♂️

  27. My game suffered through #1 (major lag) and #4 (freezing when visiting neighbors). Fortunately, I did not experience the other glitches that some players are having (disappearing THOH store, resetting Flanders Tome, dig site freezes).

    The recent patch worked for me. Most of the lagging is gone and I can collect income while scrolling, which was impossible these last few days. I can also tap neighbors without the game crashing. I still have a bit of difficulty tapping the minions (it takes several taps before they disappear. Also, Evil Homer still acts weird. At least the event is now more tolerable for me.
