It's been a while since there was an update. I think the last one was the one that introduced the crashes.. I believe that was the one that changed the way neighbors work also, where you can't see all your neighbors but must either pin your neighbors or incrementally add neighbors about 50 at a time.. So that one was over a month ago.

Hmm.. Going past 2 hours.. Anyone else getting the Dark Manor withdrawals besides me??? I'm getting the shakes and I'm seeing images of spiders, ghosts and black cats everywhere..

I've folded the laundry, made a pan of brownies, and washed the patio door. More than I've done in a week.
It's making me exhausted.

In my experience, the clock continues to click down no matter what. This has happened to me during several mega boosts (like after Scavenger Hunts, so I was losing time on 8X Boosts) The last one was during the Mardi Gras post SH Boost.

I have asked CS what the appropriate compensation would be, but have not received a direct response to that specific question yet.

Hopefully this Maintenance will fix issues that would allow ALL players to effectively use their Boost time - the demand on the servers' data transfer must be astronomical when so many of us are marathon playing during a Boost.

The Boost Sale expires tonight at 11:59pm PST. Pretty sure they're madly working on making this a pleasant experience for us . . . fingers, eyes and legs crossed

This is so frustrating waiting for the game to come back on. I was so close to the next level and to the next opened game and figured I'd spend part of the day trying to get to the next level since I'm stuck in bed on back pain pills and who knows when I'll be lucky enough to be in horrible pain, drugged up and able to take a day off again?

Taking a day off, I can totally relate.. Drugged up and in horrible pain ...??? Well, you can keep that part.. If I was drugged up I would be sound asleep and couldn't play Dark Manor at all anyway..

The pills are making me drowsy but wide awake at the same time. Since I can't play the game I've been sitting here watching the bubble screensaver on my Roku. I thought that would put me to sleep, but nope.

Yup.. Going on 4 hours..

I am thinking the testing didn't go well and now they are trying to tweak and try again, tweak and try again... Could be wrong, but I can't see a well planned smooth running update needing to take this long.. They had to have hit a snag somewhere..

Maybe not . . . I'm waiting till the new 'fix' is weathered in a bit, then I will readdess the lost Boost time issue yet again with CS.

In any event, my plan is to buy both Sale Boosts for my other 2 games a few hours before they expire tonight and alternate between games when I run out of Energy (which I've been accumulating by Neighbor Visits since I was locked out of my games mid March) and use up the uncollected Gift Energy.

The Gold price for these Boost, IMHO, is well worth it . . . and I/we could always add an additional 1 Day Boost or three later in the week.

Sleep be [Removed by Moderator]! I have LOTS of coffee on hand

XXOO - Dhyani

P.S. Then, of course, there will be an Easter Scavenger Hunt and I may regret using all my accumulated Energy

Manual update for PC seems to be available, but server still down.

Yes--I updated, but still comes up as in maintenance mode when I launch the game.

Wow, these boards are moderated by the Sandman? He's removed Dhanyi's sleep!

Such a nice post too- is biblical profanity really offensive to anyone?

Why would they remove that word?
It's no worse than manors names POOP PALACE or 6969 Doggy Style Way.

myWildIrishRose ! you do have some colorful neighbors don't you???... Perhaps they don't censor the Manor Names.. Let's see what happens to your post.. It can be a test of sorts..

I have to guess at what word Dhanyl used.. I don't quite remember what it was, but I think I know what word makes sense in that spot.. It would rhyme with ham..
