I haven't updated yet either, but I checked I have over 400 4 star items

I wonder if the drop rate is different after the update? As now I seem to get mostly 3 & 4 star items. Really need more 2 star items for crafting food...

So at all/different levels we see there are more upper level star items than lower....Hummmmmm And now the items we want need upper level star items...(scratching head?)

Yea, I agree with you on this one. I think the developers are focusing too much on bells/whistles that are appealing, and might work some. However, apparently retest were not done. The game has wonderful potential and FRUSTRATING as it might be...and this last update was the worst one to wait for-only to have THIS? The fatal exceptions are unbelievable on a good day, worse now. You cannot click on most every scene, and let's not forget the points we lose each time. This is compounded if we use any of our special timers/ getting extra points, etc. Can the game be made to work correctly at all? I certainly hope the developers were not in such a "hurry" they just fixed whatever to hush the grumblings amongst us? LOL. It is worse than before, has a great storyline, art, etc. but what good is all that if you cannot play the game. I hate the "continual rain" because it only shows one item to begin with. The time is too short, You can't move past anything more when you can't click item or move past them somehow. The whole scene/points are gone immediately and this is VERY upsetting. Sometimes after the "more time" you get the points anyway=Sometimes you don't? These things need to be fixed correctly and immediately or the game taken down. This is one game I am glad I have not spent any extra money on as it stands right now. Sorry to those who have wasted the money if they can't fix it.

Well I have a new problem with the so-called "Update", I can get most objects BUT when I get the last one the game freezes on me and I have to restart the game manager. This happens on all HOP's. Very, very annoying and very, very frustrating. I'm on level 37 and I have to say I am extremely disappointed with BigFish and the clowns who made the game !!!!!

I'm level 22, it's impossible to get the binoculars in the artist workshop scene after the new update...
the same in the fringe hut scene, impossible to get the chest: I think that happens in every HOP.
You can click for hours, but the object remains in its place...

So disheartened with the last item not being clickable in practically every scene. I've wasted so many hints and energy. I had to craft 3 challengges for the fringe hut quest.... All that time and effort.. and now I cant complete it. I shant be playing till its fixed. 2 days I will wait then game goes in the trash!!!

The new update guarantees that I cannot accomplish anything! I cannot afford to use all my energy and waste it because I cannot complete any quest. I hope this can be addressed soon - is there an imp that is randomly causing items to be frozen and not able to be picked up?

Fell sorry for those that paid actual cash to buy items to play this game. The September 17 update is a disaster. If you paid real money to play this useless game, maybe a complaint to the BBB will be warranted.

I have the same thing happening. It seems to happen most when other things are in front of the item you need. On occasion I have been able to retrieve a blocked item when the one in front has come up and I can remove that one first.

This is more than annoying. I keep playing these games but it seems to me that they only run properly for a while. It would be nice if they could actually test these updates properly before applying them. I would rather wait another week till they get it right than have the frustration of finding these bugs for them and not being able to play till they do fix it.

this is so unacceptable on so many levels. You have to believe the developer WANTED this update to work. Why else would they of put it out. They want us to have fun, want us to SPEND MONEY on their game.....This problem has to fall on BFG lap.They have the ability to tweek the game to suit their parameters. BFG, has too may FTP games in the work, and they can't keep up with doing a good job on all of them. Just check out a few others with problems...the most glaring is Dark Manor...they have almost the same problems as we do....

I wonder WHY the 'update' has not been taken down and off the BF Manager, so people stop downloading it when its been made abundantly clear to BF via the forums and no doubt many CS tickets, there are mega problems.

I have paid real $$ to play, its a choice we have and aren't forced to do so, being impatient I just wanted to forge ahead as the next and the next challenge was so exciting and enticing and frustrating - getting 1* ribbons when I wanted the red ones!!!! lol

The only quest showing on Agency33 currently for me is The Keeper asking me to 'download the update', hello, I think not! so therefore Im stuck until this gets resolved - ie its still showing as an Update on my BFM.

We get more info from these forums to know what is going on and I have now made it a rule to check here first, before doing any future update downloads -

I've started having problems too... there doesn't seem much point playing the scenes to waste energy. And if the devs don't fix the problem sharpish, people will be abandoning in droves.

I got through the Captain's Cabin OK.
BUT...
In the Shaman Hut, I couldn't click on the matchbox.
In the Artist Workshop, I couldn't click on the snowman.
In the Polar Station, I couldn't click on the frame.
And in the Chinese Block, I couldn't click on the Pole.

I hit the wrong button and skipped the Rio Carnival Scene.

I quit the game at that point, because I didn't see any point in continuing to expend energy on scenes I couldn't complete.

Please let me know if the devs are aware of it.

Me too, I getting sick of it!!!
