Hi
I am having an issue with buying more gold. When I try to click on buying gold bars or the coins even I get a message saying "Item is not available for now".
I have the newest version of the game and have bought gold before.
I am up to level 16.
We all know Australia's NBN satellite service is the crappiest in the world, but as I am sending this message I still have internet service and have other pages up, so can anyone let me know why I would be getting this message and oh, paying for it isn't the issue either, I don't even get out of the buying page, let alone into the purchase page...

thank you

I am unable to enter a name for the quest that has you choose an avatar and type in your name for the building permit. No matter what name I type in the blank it has the name is already used. It will not accept any name and will not close and let me play on. I have downloaded the new update and it still does this.

So, I'll be playing the game with no problems and then suddenly the background visuals will go solid white. You can usually still see the buildings, but everything else will be white. Even the menus will be white to the point that you have to guess where the quit button is. Once I quit and restart, everything is fine, but I'm curious if anyone else is having the problem.

It first started happening only when I was listing things for auctions or actually looking at the auction listings. Now it seems to happen in various different menus such as the store, friends, etc. If it matters, my desktop screen resolution is set at 1280 x 960 so I'm not sure if that might be a problem. If anyone has had this problem or knows what's going on and how to fix it... Please share!

Thanks all!

** Also, I have already installed the update and am playing on XP if that may make a difference**


I am having this problem if I go into the auction. It seems to be over loading my computer, way to many items there. If I spend more then 10 minutes in the auction it will do it, then I have to close the game, and get off for a bit, when I go back things are fine. I have a new computer to. So not sure why they don't just make the auction house to where we can pick just what we need rather then having thousands of items all there, it's to much for any computer to handle.

I like the game, and yes it does have issues. However I am sure the makers listen to us and will I hope take heed.

I have an issue, and was wondering if you all can maybe put a block for friends. I have some dude talking porn in messages, with my kids using the game along with myself, and with other parents allowing kids to play I think the message system either needs to be closed, or make it so that parents can block friends from chatting through the mail. We don't select our friends the game does, and we never know who the friend will be, however I personally am tired of the trash talk. Nasty talk is not what I need when I am trying to relax with my game. Please have someone fix this issue. I don't want to have to worry about my girls when they play.

This game is pretty glitchy...

Like others, completed one of the food achievements and didn't get the gold.

In later cities, Picky Shopper says it is looking for one thing, but when you click on what you think is the item, it isn't. It's something else and until you memorize the incorrect clue you have to use the hint. Example of this is in the Bar, where it says it is looking for a penguin (in so many words) but you need to click on the smoothie.

In Picture mode, several picture spaces come up blank. Again, until you memorize the scene you may have to use the hint.

Completed all upgrades to Level 5 on all available buildings and it did not unlock the final scene. It told me that the scene would unlock via a quest, but I have no more quests showing up and as far as I know, the criteria for unlocking has been fulfilled.

Game occasionally just boots you out, with no explanation of course.

The small mini-areas that need an item to open up don't seem to be working right. Have all trophies in all cities except for the final 4, and only 2 previous cities ever had the needed items show up.

Customized the Wharf with pennants and now it won't let me access it again at all.

Having fun with this and on the plus side, leveling up always seems to work correctly so at least that's not a problem!

Additional issue:

Inside the antique shop, Lamps requires you to complete 60 quests to unlock the Ballroom lights. I have 128 or so quests completed and the item is not unlocked. Same for several of the other upgrade items.

ETA:

In Design mode inside the Antique Shop:

Door - Antique Maple - 40 quests - not unlocked
Rug - Cream Tabriz - 15 - not unlocked
etc., etc., etc.

Now, I know that I missed a couple of messages at the bottom of the screen because I clicked elsewhere too fast and didn't get to collect a few rewards. If that is what should have unlocked these items then the message needs to be re-displayed on occasion. Simple to fix, I would think.

Like a previous poster, I've purchased/used many food items and haven't gotten the energy credit for them. I wanted to do a location that needed 30 energy and I only had 25, so I went in and confirmed that I wanted to use a food that should have given me 20 energy. Confirmed it, the food disappeared from my screen.... still only 25 energy. That's the 3rd time in 2 days I've noticed this happening. I already sent a message to tech support, but I'm pretty annoyed that I've used up all my food for nothing.

There are some food items that increase your total maximum energy, but not your current energy. Maybe you used one of those.

There are 2 items that increase max energy by 20 but only the Shirley Temple float gives you the energy along with the increase. The cheesecake only changes the total amount of energy you can get.

I have been playing the PC version of this game since it was released on BF last week without any serious issues. Yesterday, I upgraded the auction house in the game to level 3. When the auction house was ready today, I clicked on auction to see what was available. The screen froze, and then the game closed down. I logged back on, and tried again. It keeps doing this anytime I try to access the auction. I have even restarted the computer to no avail. Nothing works. I have no idea if it is related to the auction house upgrade, or not, but I cannot use it at all without shutting the game down. Is anyone else having issues with the auction house?

Can't access the auction house

[Post New]by Bluecassie37 on Oct 1, 13 10:30 AM
The auction house won't load and it says there are no items listed. I have tried deleting and reloading it, but no change.
I'm playing on a PC and have version 0.90 of the game.
Any help would be great, thank you.

Same here. Yesterday, it worked, today it does not ... there are two messages: 1st message says " there was an error in loading the auctioned items" and 2nd says what you mentioned. Even so, I tried to auction one item as a test, got confirmation, and the item was removed from my inventory! Let's hope the mods will replly to all these tech issues.

I've got the same problem. Since the update the auction house worked fine but today the same message as before the update.

Another warning - don't customize a building before you have updated it to the highest level (5). I did that with the butterfly building yesterday and now I can`t update it anymore which means some minigames will remain locked.

I haven't been able to access the auction house all day. It's not available, and I get a pop-up error message. Also, the program is not recording "picky shopper" achievements. Although I have played this mode many times, it still shows 0.

I'm playing on a pc as well and the auction house has been empty and giving me error messages all day as well. On a related note though, I received a message an hour ago stating that I won an auction and that someone had won one of mine. I also just now received a message stating that someone bought one of my items outright. So obviously it must be working here and there for people. I guess we just have to keep checking and see what happens.

Hello All,

I'm just popping in to let you know that we're aware that the Auction House is currently unavailable. We're working hard to resolve the issue and will let you know when we hear anything new.

The rest of the game is unaffected by this.

Thanks for your patience!

Hi! I havent gotten any new quests since around level 20(am around 25-26 now). The last one I got was to upgrade ledger to gold. Im just playing around upgrading things and its getting boring. AND still having the problem with given different amounts of money everytime I log in. I lose a bit of my gold and coins everytime! Why arent you responding to these things, Deveron?

Do people get quests after the gold ledger one?
