The same horrible error or glitch. Got a message at midnight that "all things come to an end" and when I clicked on the OK button, it started over from the very beginning. All gone... ...and start again from level 1...
Then now Santa and the little elf is back but all achivements with my level 32 remain gone.

This probably is not a technical issue, however, I have no other place to ask my question. What do you do with the Inventory Items on the Inventory Page - it talks about selling them ---- are you supposed to sell them (and why) = or are you supposed to just let them collect. How do you use them??? Thank you - hope someone can help me.

Jean.......inventory items........these are the items you collect from doing the HOS's, the airship, wheel of fortune, etc..........you will use most of these items in the game in the ZZ's (zoom zones) like the torch you use for the burnt tree......I say most of these items.......some of them are not used all that often and you may sell extras, but be careful.....keep at least 25 or so of all items......you may not use them now but will need them as you level up. These inventory items just accumulate and when you use them for crafting or a ZZ they will just be deleted from your inventory.
You probably should not ever sell stamps........you may have hundreds or thousands "now" but as you level up you will need them more and more.

Edited to add...........don't sell pet food either.

Back up successful

[Post New]by datsalotta on Jan 6, 15 6:04 PM
Hey friends & PC techies
After reading however many lost their game, and how some of us have made back ups, I was mortified!! , I feel your pain and thought : I should back up my progress (level 18).
Put in a DVD-RW disc, and followed Windows instructions. After Windows formatted the disc it notified me to restart the PC. Worked like a charm - copied all 2KB.
Hope I've helped others.
datsalotta relief.
Gotta go play now

I have been reading about all of the folks who lost their games because they were playing when the change over was done and just wondered if it might be a good idea to send out an announcement, like the little envelope for the tournaments, when an update is going to be done. Give everyone an hour and then they have a chance to close out their game before the update is done. I know that I for one would love to know ahead of time if I was in the middle of playing a game, and I would definitely log off. Just a thought.

Beckster...that is an excellent idea, and I bet it really wouldn't take much to implement it...but then again ______ fill in the blank, lol.

Filling in the blank ___________...........

That would make sense, therefore it will never happen.

I'm not receiving credit for achievements completed. I've been watching my "steering wheel" count for the airship and on the last 2 shipments I racked up 190 steering wheels but my achievement number has remained at 6,921. On my count I should have received the achievement some time ago. Is it because we are shipping out the Christmas sleigh instead of the actual airship?

So I hear about if you have a later version of the game saved on your computer you can restore but some of us reinstalled the game and no longer have a later version. Does that mean we are screwed out of the money and time we put into the game or can it be saved somehow? I still have my ID from before and was hoping when the game opened it would ask me for my user name or something but no I get starting over at the beginning. Where can I get help for this?

I also cannot find the update for PC. I was playing the game when it suddenly flashed that the version was out of date, and to check for the update, manually if necessary. I did, and there is nothing. I'm sorry I did not see the posts here about the update. Like another, I wonder why a message could not have been sent, similar to those announcing a tournament. No $$$ in that, I guess.

There is a message that they are doing maintenance and it may be down a while.

I just did a uninstall and then downloaded from the website but........I am in the game now but I still have CHRISTMAS STUFF. I can move around in the game and play it if I want. I did send my SLEIGH off. Don't know exactly what I should do now. My id#is 384393

Just logged off and then reopened my game and it opened with the Christmas Stuff still there. Didn't tell me I had an outdated version or anything. And when I check on my BF screen, I don't see any updates. Did a manual check for updates and it told me there were none.

What is the deal with the Christmas content??

A few days ago I got a message when I started the game that the Christmas event was over. My regular daily quest guy came back and things were good.

The next day the stupid Christmas content was back! I just updated (hoping the Christmas crud would finally leave) and the Christmas stuff is still there!!

Grrr.... PLEASE get rid of this stuff so I can get back to earning my pet medallions. I have pet eggs that I've been waiting to hatch!

Game hung when opening so I quit and restarted and got the message about it being out of date and needing the update. I did a computer restart, then did the update. Everything was copacetic, game opened fine and I played for a bit. I closed up, then returned several hours later. Now I'm getting the need to update message again. Running Windows 7 on an HP.

Suggestions?

Also unable to play. I updated via the game manager and getting a message that the game is out of date and to manually find an update. Did that, no update.

I installed the update this afternoon, Christmas stuff disappeared, normal daily quests back (no content update for lvl. 53), everything working fine -
BUT: now I am also infected with the "perfect score glitch", now ranking 1st on every lvl. I played, leaving the HOS does not help

Chris........yes, the wreaths not a problem with me....mine is the santa hats.

Ah well, today the old format came on (could not continue playing, as you can with some updates by ignoring them and clicking the X) so back to normal daily quests. Now - what do I do with all the hats, wreaths and baubles? Can I sell them, or may they become essential for something soon?

but, wanted to say a big THANK YOU to BFG for a nice Christmas scenario and the chance to fill my game coffers with gold and items And glad to see the flowers-to-coins glitch is still repaired. Happy New Year BFG, it was a fun season
