Miracle on Spooner Street “Issues” Update

UPDATE 12/30/14: Per TinyCo…

We’ve just pushed a fix for iOS crashes on the loading screen, Please try logging in!

 

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Bouncing by with some more Q&A updates for you and the “issues” we are seeing players comment about.

Consuela Technical Support Bunny Glitch

Sit tight as I break them down…

First off, if you do not see tasks or are missing some… make sure you have room. This means clear out some from your task menu or nothing new will be able to pop up.Β 


EVENT ENDING PREMATURELY

There are a few things going on here. It could be your device is no longer compatible with the game, or something else. Either way, you will need to contact TinyCo for further help on this one. Through your game menu if you can get to it. Email help@tinyco.com if you can’t. Make sure you put “Event Ending Prematurely” in the notes.


WHERE IS THE KISSMASS CONCERT TASK?Β 

Per TinyCo, as long as you have BOTH KISS Characters AND the KISS Stage… this tasks should kick off from Peter some point around “All About the Bass” Part 1 OR “Do You See What I See” Part 1. Beyond that, contact them from your game.

This is JUST the two doing their “Rock Out” tasks, so if you tapped on by real fast…you may have missed it completing.


CAN’T “UNLOCK” A CHARACTER

Once you complete collection for a Characters items, the lil Padlock above them highlights and “bounces” so you can tap on it and “unlock” the Character. Many of you stated that you tried this with a Character (like Babs) and the game shut down or nothing happened. They are aware of it and we did report it just before the Holiday. The issue is still being looked into and we will update you when we hear more on its progress.


MISSING ITEMS FROM GIFT BOXES

We again reported to TinyCo that players stated they’re missing items like the Yule Log. We again were sent back same info as before… All the players contacting them had the item sitting in their Inventory. So please, check there first and check VERY THOROUGHLY. Every single section and tab to make sure you do not miss it. The Yule Log is a small item. Many of these items you can scroll right on past. Also, make sure you are in the INVENTORY and not the Menu. You will know as the Menu items have prices on them. If you see $$$ or Clams costs…you are in the Menu.


POLKA DOT BOX DISAPPEARED

It is supposed to do that. As with any of the Boxes past and present, they are set up for the purpose of Buildings, Costume, and Decorations. ANYTHING else is an extra (this means Materials and Clams). So…if you got all the main items (Buildings, Decorations, Costumes) the box will go as it served its purpose. Elf Peter Costume jumped right to my Peter Character, so make sure you check there for it. The rest usually go to Inventory, so check there.


ELF PETER QUESTLINE

This was a LITTLE two part. Get the costume. Build a snowman. Done. That’s it. You may have completely missed it if you tapped too fast and made him build one right away.

 

You can see the previous items answered HERE….

As for the rest, still NOTHING reported of anything more coming…so you can wait and see…or buy items to sell back for $$$ if you need it. NOTHING on questline extensions. Pretty much…this is it as the Pop Up in the game stated. NOTHING on the “Not Compatible” items update yet.

Hope that helps to clear up the majority of things we are seeing. Hang in there, we are just about done.

~Bunny

p.s. YES!!! We saw the New Year’s Pop Up too. When more details are available, you can be sure we will share them. πŸ˜‰

  1. The new year’s event is crashing non stop for me! Every time I try to buy the party tent and/or the clock tower it crashes. This morning it took me 4 tries to even get it to load. Once it did and Peter and Lois started their dialogue after the fix marital issues quest it crashed and I can’t get back on.

  3. I’m having an issue with Babs. I unlocked her right at the end of the event then had her do her first task…then, the event ended. Now the game crashes when she is supposed to give the reward. The pop up just says that there is now reward for this task. Then reloads the game. Not sure what to do now:(

  4. 1 am in 2015 and I finally can get into my game. they did fix the crashing at the loading screen thing which allowed me to get past that screen 95% of the time. In which the game would crash before I could get past any dialogue screens that ALWAYS popped up. So even though i had a day at the event I could have maybe at least bought Kiss members or other things I could have unlocked in a couple hours I had left, I still couldnt get in the game to do it lol. At about 5 pm eastern I was gettin event ending prematurely messages again. and then the game just constantly crashed, from then on. So yay missing completely easy to obtain characters since the 25th. Hope they have them all next year at least. But at least Im finally able to enter the game, until the next crashtacular event starts lol. I think they should have just disabled the snow effects once people started having issues with it.

    • Yeah, so I guess I misunderstood them when TC said I could log onto my account with an iOs device and play that way. Borrowed my Man’s. Cool. Visited friends finally and gifted to all I could. It will be that last time as event ends before 24hr timer up. Went back to my tablet, and well, now I can’t play on my Samsung (Android) tablet anymore! :O No more regular check ins for me! Now I gotta borrow his to check in and play, which will be infrequently, as it’s his phone! Bummed and worried the next event won’t have the device compatible glitch fixed when it launches! TC says we users affected still had access to the full Christmas event, but that’s not true. We missed out on gifting to others, stunning shoppers, possibly the KISS clams, etc… we didn’t get the full features of the event. Anyway, just saying. Just happy I can play at all, I guess.
      Thanks for all your coaching, Addicts! It’s really appreciated!
      Happy new year’s guys!! Have fun and stay safe!

  16. I had hoped for a nice event break so I could demolish all of my town making a minimal version having stored all excess items. I suspect that I have too many useless items out now and that it cause the constant crashes I get.

    Instead we get a New Years event God only know how long that one will last. To be honest I am getting burned out them piggybacking events with almost no breaks in between.

  17. I had my game crash a few nights ago, I of course had just beaten top hat yeti for the last 25 of the 100 snowflakes to get Jesus. I used 3 clams a piece to speed up Joe and Lois, total 6 clams used, before I could tap to craft Jesus, crash! When I got back into my game Lois was dtill fighting the top hat yeti, idk where joe had gone to and I was back to 75/100 snowflakes for Jesus and my 6 clans were gone. Now I won’t get jesus until tomorrow…. maybe, I wonte be able to get king yeti though.

  20. I sent a support ticket in a few days ago and another yesterday when my issue turned from crashing at the loading bar (the three things I got past this the town was really zoomed out and crashed within a minute) to when it was crashing at the loading bar (the 6 times i got past that it opened with a Kiss Saves Christmas screen with the event ending prematurely message). Neither time I got any response, not even a canned reply (like i got immediately when i had an issue before).

    Well this morning I got a reply for both tickets within like 5 mins of each other so i am gonna guess they were on vacay or something. the message a canned response:

    “We are aware of the crashing issue currently affecting iOS players on the latest 1.5.5 update. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working hard to get this resolved as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and happy holidays!”

    Looks like there is no way its gettin fixed before xmas event is over. So annoying I (nor anyone else having issues) cant get anything they added since the 25th!

        • I feel your pain. I just had a run of 11 straight 1 damage attacks on the top hat Yeti.. and decided to give up. I’m not even close to getting Jesus as i would need to beat the top hat version… then wait the 24 hours and then get back to.. and beat the top hat again to have enough snowflakes.

          Between the 4 hour attacks that seem to give far too many 1 damage results.. and the 4 hour respawn time.. you either have to be in game EVERY 4 hours (forget about a proper sleep schedule and take a few days off from work if you’re unable to take breaks exactly when needed… and you still need to get lucky with enough 2 damage hits).. or you have to spend clams on characters you may not want just to get the one character you do want.

  24. Hi! I have a quick question I was hoping someone here could answer. For Christmas, I got the iPhone 6, an upgrade from my previous iPhone 5. I haven’t gotten to go to the store to activate it yet, but I’m worried when I do I’ll lose all of my game’s data! I’ve been playing since the ComicCon Event, and, like you all, I’m addicted! I don’t have a Facebook and don’t really want one, how can I keep my game?

  31. So i noticed they put jesus, santa, and the two kiss members into a new group on the facespace. As i had all these characters already before they did that it just says “complete” next to where the payout is for completing. So two questions. First what was they payout if there was one since there usually always is. Second if I already had it completed before it was added will I ever get the payout?

  32. ” This means clear out some from your task menu or nothing new will be able to pop up. ”

    I want to make a comment about this. Mind you, the issue does not affect me at the moment, but on my game, I currently have 6 tasks asking or enticing me to spend clams (some that I may not want to and there is no way to dismiss these)….
    + Buy a Bin of Clams special
    + Buy Gene – Kisscopter
    + Buy Paul – Kiss Hog
    + Defeat Top Hat Yeti (probably cant do that with just 3 characters)
    + Defeat King Yeti (definitely cant do that with just 3 characters – so you have to buy another)
    + Buy a Box of Coins special

    If there was a way for these ‘buy’ tasks to be hidden, even temporarily, then there obviously would be a lot more room for new tasks.

    • From what I am experiencing myself, “sale” tasks do not apply. I am directly speaking to tasks/questlines…not those random pop ups.

      • This event it seemed like the tasks were very Lois focused (I didn’t get the Peter task to defeat the final Yeti until I spend the 24 hour cooldown doing non yeti tasks involving Lois Joe and Mort that I had let sit (because I wanted to focus on Jesus)…I wish the questlines would be more obvious in priority (ie tsto has the main questline and then the side “you’ve earned this prize, use it” tasks) I’d be willing to do the main questline tasks but since they have like 5 different names I don’t know which is the most important or which came first (why can’t it be one questline with 25 parts? (The only benefit is when the questlines occasionally line up so that completing a task once advances both quests but that’s rare.

    • You can’t add more to what is already in there. A fail safe for you to NOT spend clams and money on something already in your inventory.

And I didn’t buy the extra characters so I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get Jesus 😦 It would be great if they let me sell some of the extra stockings to get more snow flakes.

      • There was a way to beat the Yeti with 3 free characters to get Jesus. What you had to do was not update your tree, so you had Top Hat Yeti as your highest version. Defeat THY a few times at 25 Snowflakes a pop you easily can get Jesus.

        When you know you have enough Snowflakes coming and are about to defeat THY, update the tree before you do to have King Yeti appear next. This would have got you prepared to win the King Yeti deco having Mort, Lois, Joe and Jesus. The task to win the deco popped up for me like 1 hour before I was able to defeat King Yeti.

        Yes, I did have to grind 48+ hours straight to defeat THY repeatedly to get Jesus, but it was possible.
