I am afraid that I did something on my computer and don't want to download and install again, what happens to my game if I do this? Will I have to restart? I was doing so well! Any advice before I pull the plug?

Never mind, I was able to unplug the computer and it rebooted itself. Must be that it was updating another game.

Just in case you would run into real trouble later:
You don't lose your progress when you re-install the game.
To be really safe, you can create an account:
Click on the gears, choose 'settings' then choose 'account' and fill in your e-mail address and a password.
Then click 'login' (on the 'settings' menu), fill in the e-mail and password and you are done. From now on, your game will be saved in the 'cloud' each time you quit the game, IF you are connected to the internet.
So be sure to check you are connected (by accessing your friends list or the auction) just before quitting the game.

Does anyone know if you can buy the cat with coins rather than gold? I have a quest asking me to buy an Egyptian necklace for my cat (which I don't own yet) so when I go to buy the cat it is 120 gold! Many thanks

Nope. Only gold.
Worse still, the necklace will also cost you some gold.
On the bright side: the cat and the necklace will make some later quests easier to achieve.

Thanks so much Dirk. I have enough gold now to get the cat- and hopefully the necklace.

I believe what you are describing is the appearance of "found" items from other quests appearing in the Secret Library. I would suggest looking at the picture and then going to the AES office and see if isn't already placed on that wall.

There is a glitch in the game that causes the most recent found items to also appear in WA like they are to be used there.

Well my dearest ART fellow players, i have come across some trouble that I am sure hoping someone can help me. I finally got to the Farming deal, and was able to check all the needed items with Sri Lim... however when I went back to the Apple Orchard, I cannot find the hammer that I need to open the gate. I have the toolbox to open the windmill, but I cannot access it until I open the gate.

Has anyone encountered this problem? I've had to quit the game in the middle, I mean the Apple Orchard, and stop finding items because they show as items with the open doors. I've closed it, and gone back to Oregon where the hammer should be found, and played the game again to see if it would show up.

Any suggestions as to what I could do? I sure don't want to start the game over now... I've accumulated 300+ gold bars... won't I lose them, as well as my almost 3,000.000 coins?

 

Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin' casino chips glitch

[Post New]by cte32787 on Aug 2, 17 4:23 AM
I am having a problem.
I got the three part quest on playing a game of cards at the bar. I gave the money and got the casino chips. Then I went to the bar and it highlights the table for me, but I don't have anything in the upper left corner to use!
I have tried restarting my game and restarting the whole computer, but that does nothing different. All I am doing is wasting good energy on nothing, because I can't even finish the scene without having that table open!
What can I do? If I was to uninstall and reinstall, I believe I would end up losing everything I've done, so I don't want to try that.
Please help!!

Go back to where you got the poker chips (Carnival, Kansas if I'm not mistaken) and see if you can win them once more. Then try the Bar again.

General rule: if you receive an item to open a mini-scene, you must use it immediately or you may lose it.
Sometimes you can go back and win the item again; if not, you have to restart your game completely.

Thanks so much, Dirk_Tee!
I will try it and see before restarting.
I also read up on a lot of helpful hints you have been telling people.
You are amazing!
Thanks again.

You should have (or should have had) a quest to find them.
If I remember well, they were in Portland, Oregon

You have to have be playing on PC game, have finished the Missing Painting quests (along with the AES membership etc.)

If you have completed the Missing Paintings you will want to look through this thread:

Is there somewhere where one can find out info on the bugs in this game? I was at level 74 and could not advance any further cause of a glitch that would not allow me to find gloves to open the photo album! So I started over and now it took another item I need to advance and I cannot restart that quest! Call me silly, but do they expect me to play 24/7 and not shut it down EVER! This has become ridiculous! I have played to lever 31 and now do I have to restart again! Getting very frustrated, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!

In general, if you do an Advanced Forum Search over there at the right you will be able to find one page of the topic you are looking for.

Most often, it is the connection with the server that louses up people. Every single time you log off you need to check the auction, throw some keys, or your messages. All of these things only work when you are connected to the server. DO NOT log out of the game till you know you have been connected and will get credit for what you have done in your most recent session.

If you don't find what you are looking for with a search, another good source are the sticky folders. There is one with useful links.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can thumb through the pages of the forum. You will see the page numbers. Still can't find it make a thread - choose a title that will be meaningful for the next person searching for the same topic please. Someone will answer you.

Halloween

[Post New]by IfOnlyYou on Oct 17, 17 9:57 PM
I am now scare of not checking if there is something I need to do to get my credits on the Halloween event... Which buildings need to get changed? and how long does it take to change them? I have a bad taste in my mouth from Pirate's Day, where I didn't get credit for any of the days quests so I guess I did get a little flippant and thought I could do it on my own... guess what? I humbly apologize for my stupidity!!!

No buildings need upgrading for the Halloween event.
All quests involve flying to Romania.
What you need:
- airplane fixed
- lots of fuel (Romania takes 3 fuel for each visit)
- Professional level in Romania to play Picky Shopper mode.
