Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So in case you’ve been living under a rock…there is a GLITCH IN TSTO RIGHT NOW WITH PART 2 OF THE HOT DIGGITY D’OH PRIZE TRACK QUESTLINE.
Did I say that loud and bold enough? 😜
I did talk about this in the Turbo Tappin’ post…but it appears a lot of you either missed it or let’s face it you don’t actually read the words I write on some of these posts.
So, yes. You are not losing your mind, there is a glitch with the timers for part 2 of the Release the Grease, main prize track, questline…
For part 2 of Release the Grease, the timers reset on the restaurants when you close the game, or visit a neighbor, and you’re unable to collect the grease from the restaurants.
(note: you need to actually use your finger to collect, using Skyfinger won’t work…from what i’ve observed).
Not everyone is impacted by this, I personally did not experience this yesterday. (ie when i tried to duplicate it I couldn’t. My timers ran down as normal… 🤷♀️
You do have to clear any restaurants in Springfield of their cash before you can collect grease…(so if you see a check book floating over them, clear it to collect the cash/xp and then the timer will reset to 1hr for a 1 bucket of grease payout.)
So what can this site do about it?
Nothing. We’re not EA. We do not have the ability to fix this and we think the fact that it’s happening sucks just as much as you guys do. All we can do is offer up work arounds, and that’s it. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can really do until EA releases a patch for (which they’re supposedly working on).
What Can YOU Do About It?
Here’s a couple of work arounds…
-Use donuts. This is the fastest, and most obvious answer. It’ll cost you 50 donuts to clear 25 buildings (or the same building 25 times) and collect the grease. Might be worth it to some players who’s time is limited in the game.
-Keep your game open for an hour. This would require you to babysit your game for a full hour waiting for those timer’s to reset, and not allowing your screen (or the game) to shut off. Not a bat option if you have an hour of time to kill and don’t want to spend 50 donuts.
-Wait for EA to release a patch.
So that’s about it on this one guys. Does it suck? YES. Do I wish I could fix it? YES. Unfortunately, we’re at the mercy of EA’s tech team…so unless you want to spend 50 donuts, you’ll have to rely on a little patience. Patience for them to fix it, or patience to keep your game open for an hour.
