I updated the game through the manual thread and found no changes at all. When I saw the message from bfgLianorm, I went to the options and tried to find the manual update. I have already been updated, so nothing is showing up. Am I going to get the Halloween game or not? I missed out last year and have been waiting forever.

Hey there Everyone!

I have great news! After a bit of waiting, a new version of Found: A Hidden Object Adventure is now available on the website. This update includes:

- Halloween Content
- Some bug fixes
- 4 new locations
- 4 new mobs
- 7 elite mobs
- 8 new collections
- 48 collection items
- 60 new quests
- Hunter's hut on the third island

This update should show up on the left-hand side of your Big Fish Games app under 'Updates.' If you're not seeing that, just follow the steps below:

1) Open your app and make sure you're signed into your account.
2) Click on the 'Options' COG on the top right-hand side of your screen.
3) Click on the 'Downloads' tab.
4) Select 'Manually' and click 'Check For Updates.'

If you are still running into issues after installing that update, please contact our Tech Support Team so we can look into those.

Thank you again for your patience everyone!

Hooiseramy, I am not sure if this will help but I found this in the first thread of the page even though the last date show August 19th update when I entered this was the last posting dated Oct 10, 2014. It does not however state when it will become active but looks like it may be a lot of fun. Cannot wait!

Now I am really confused. When this all began, I was told my game manager was out of date and that I had to update. No update was available on my manager (left hand side) so I was told to look for it manually. After downloading the new update, I saw absolutely no change at all. Then I am told that a new update is available, but since I already updated, i am not allowed to update the Halloween version that everyone else is running across. Is there a secret to this that we aren't being told about. I see the Halloween screen when looking at the free to play games, but I'll be darned if I know how to get at it. If I get cheated out of the goodies this year, I;ll be really broken hearted since I missed the update last year. If someone knows what is going on, please let us in on it.

You probably have the latest version...the Halloween specials haven't been "triggered" yet. We "assume" it'll happen on the 15th. (But I guarantee you I'm in there every day checking to see if it's happening yet!)

See my previous note, please. None of us can see any changes yet. And since we play online, as someone else pointed out, it won't do any good to try to "fool" the game by changing your computer date.
So just hang in there until it triggers.
There is some advice either in this string or the Halloween one about how to go into your files and check for the Halloween stuff...if it's in the files, you're up-to-date even if you don't see any changes.

I'm having the same trouble, I can't play today because my game cannot connect to the server. I lost a lot of coins in the Hunter's House because I couldn't get in there to banish the floaters this morning.

And as for restarting your game, you shouldn't have any problems as long as you don't delete your files. Just restarting the game takes you to the same level you were on.

Edited to add: I uninstalled the game and then reinstalled it, and now I am able to play.

Again another bfg mystery, as to why they would post saying all the things on the update...have us download the update (no choice) and make us wait for said update. As I've stated before on a few threads, the Halloween program did come down with the download, but has yet to be triggered by the date they want it to. Was it a slip of the keyboard that it was posted to be an update????? Was it a slow day for the servers, so they could slide it in????? Why not just tell us, that the Halloween content would be downloaded, but not triggered till the date they set????? My gosh we play games, but we aren't children....sheesh....

Ok, stepping off soap box...

I'm glad the update came a week early....if any catastrophic things had happened, they could have had time to fix before the event trigger(remember Xmas?).....as to not telling us "when", makes the anticipation grow.....

~trixie, I see your point about the anticipation. But (my feelings) until the "trigger date" we won't know if the Halloween update works or not until we can play it...

Mystified, AmyHoo.....

I think I'll probably stay up until midnight tonight just to see if it triggers on the 15th. My roommate's having surgery today, so I'll probably not be able to sleep anyhow.

One other thing to note...there's a note in the update notice that says something about fixing some bugs. Since my game plays well, I don't currently know of any.

I do know, however, that there are folks out there unable to complete some quests because "you don't know where to find this item". I haven't seen any comments since the update, but, if that was fixed, it would definitely make the update worth putting in a few days early.

I don't think it specified what it was fixing, though.

It also is supposed to include 4 new locations and other goods on new Island. That would make it a triple bonus.

Since yesterdays update for ipad while playing the screen moves around, any fix or is this something new that is suppose to happen. I find it very annoying.
