Troubleshooting 101- Character Issues

Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!

For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well.  Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol.  It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise.

Weekend Update: December 8th-14th

Phew, what a week we have had. You all having fun yet? Glitchin still? Well I have been ALL over the U.S. this week. East coast to West coast. Ran into a bunch of fellow Addicts. You all are a bunch of nut cases just like me, and I LOVE IT!!!

Airplane

No worries, I AM an Addict through and through, so I WAS playing and keeping an eye on you guys all along the way. I enjoy it THAT much. Just no more peanuts or pretzels please. You’d think they’d at least have a carrot or 3 aboard.  🙂

Where is…MY CHARACTER???!!

As more and more reports of the main quest line characters are coming in, I wanted to just touch basis and update everyone on the issue. Some have experienced Homer and/or Martin traveling to Krustyland, but are unable to get them to return back to Springfield to complete the next quest. Some, like Wookiee (keep clear, some arm ripping may occur), have Homer in Springfield…but off in the “dark lands”. (Mufasa told Simba not to go over there. “Everything the light touches” people, sheesh.) So some get the lovely treat and experience of being able to look at their characters…but unable to get to them at all. In my experience, I have nasty lil Gremlins “hiding” in the dark area. I assumed they just timed out as they are no longer there. (Thank goodness for that 4 hour count down.) I still have not had a response on my issue, I will update when/if I do.

OH HOMER, WHERE ART THOU?

Howdy everybody!

Just wanted to get some info out about a possible glitch that could effect every one’s gameplay.

Even though I’ve been playing since last Halloween and been very fortunate to have only minor glitches so far, I’ve had a pretty serious one during this update.

Homer is missing!  

Homer

Yesterday I sent Homer on his 12 hour Halloween task.  I laughed as he grew bigger to eat ghosts and then took off PACMAN-style eating donuts.  While I followed Homie to get screenshots, I watched as he continued off my game screen off into the deep blue sea.  No worries right?

I didn’t think anything of it until Homer wasn’t in my town today.  Of course, I thought I was SMRTER than him and tried to find him by setting new tasks but apparently, he is trapped in the twilight zone under the water to the bottom left of my town.  I can see his yellow thumbs up briefly on a green background.

All the usual glitch fixes have not worked and I have an e-mail in with EA to see if it can be fixed.  Just wanted to make sure I got this info out to all you dedicated Ghostbusting Addicts.  If you’ve had success with the task in your town, I would not panic.  This glitch may just be isolated to the Wookiee but I would feel terrible if I didn’t use my soap box to let y’all know, especially since so many game tasks require the big guy.

As soon as I know the fix, I will let you know.  True moral of the story is to not freak about glitches. They work themselves out and it is really only a game. Sometimes they are even hilarious.

If you want to be on the safe side, be careful of Homer’s 12 hour Halloweeny task. TTFN Addicts… Wookiee out!

UPDATE 3 OCT 13 @ 2219 PST

I have been in contact with EA and they stated they are aware of this problem.  Some people’s characters have been disappearing when they do their Halloween tasks.  Provided it is not Homer or Lisa, the quick fix is to store the building they came with.  I did this for Martin (The Springfield Library) and he reappeared.  As a bonus, EA gave me 17 donuts so I would recommend letting EA know of any big glitches you may have.  Happy tapping and I hope your game is glitch free!

FREE DOUGHNUTS & KRUSTYLAND TICKETS!!!

Awesome title right? Now don’t I wish this gift was for everyone. For some, happiness all around. For others, they wish their game glitched all over. (Secretly had this been foreseen…I would’ve done EVERYTHING to make it glitch just to get such an amazing prize.)
